Are You Up for a little Challenge? Lots of Prizes
I have to tell you about some adorable…. and I mean adorable little cuties. Sshhhhhhh, I'll give you a hint. Look at the bottom of the post)
You thought I’d be sharing a picture of Abby, right? I am such a tease…. sorry!
I want you to check out the adorable babies HERE at the SPS DT blog. Sweet Pea Stamps is having a Back To School contest. The BEST is that the winner wins a sheet of Sweet Pea Stamps and OH my gosh….. did you see the sheets that are newly released? Or the ones that are coming out soon????
Before you head over there to check these cute babies out, I am throwing out a challenge…. enter Sweet Pea Stamps Back To School Challenge and come back here to tell me you entered it. Your name will go into a drawing and one randomly chosen winner will receive one Sweet Pea Stamps sheet of their choice from me!!! You can enter as many times as you like… meaning that for every entry to SPS Back To School Challenge you can come back here and enter your name in Mr. Linky. BUT wait…….
For every entry that correctly matches me to my baby picture, your name will go into a separate drawing and one randomly chosen winner will win their choice of Sweet Pea Stamps full unmounted rubber sheet.
Chance #1: Must enter the Back To School Challenge at the SPS DT blog then come back here and enter your name into Mr. Linky. I will get with Jennifer, SPS DT Coordinator after the contest ends to verify my contest entries with the Back To School Challenge entries.
Chance #2: I will get the entries that correctly matched my baby picture to me. The names will go into a bucket and (after much whining to convince me) Miss Emma will draw the winner. And because Miss Gracy also wants to be part of the action, I will have a 2nd prize winner, who will receive 10 sheets of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb Solar White card stock and a package of embellishments.
You have until August 31st to enter. My two winners will be announced here Sunday, September 5th. Come on…help SPREAD THE WORD!!!!! NOTE:
Mister Linky is at the bottom of this post…….THIS CANDY IS NOW CLOSED!!
While you are at the SPS DT blog, you might want to go and head over to the Sweet Pea Stamps shop. Ohh, (droolin’ here)….. all those gorgeous, magical new releases. And now’s the time to grab ‘em, Sweet Pea Stamps is offering FREE shipping on orders over $25.
International customers only pay a flat rate of $4.95 if paying via PayPal. How awesome is that? Cuz we all know how expensive that shipping can get and I don’t know about you, but I would rather spend that money on stamps.
PLUS…. save $5 on orders totalling over $30. Just use coupon code: Coupon1 in the coupon section at checkout – limit one time use per person. Wowsers, that’s a lot of information to process, lol. Be sure to head to Sweet Pea Stamps shop for all the details.
And to add some more info….. be sure to check out the rest of the DT. A little birdie tells me that more Sweet Pea Stamps candy is waiting…… just sayin’ .
So, anybody still around to check out my card? LOL….. I had a heck of a time finalizing my card. Why? Because I was bound and determined to follow a sketch for one of the sketch challenges. Did I? Ha, in the end I got so frustrated that I said to hell with it. I finally finished up Samantha Rawling’s ‘Lil Witch’ from Sweet Pea Stamps Plate #62.
Finished it up at around midnight last night….. ugh…. and it’s nothing special, just a plain card! I do like the background though. I used colored pencils, purple around the edges of the image panel, gray pencil closer to the stamped and colored (with copics) image. Then I used a Dove Blender Pen and blended all the pencil marks/area. Lastly I took my Ranger Blending Tool and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and went over the background right on top of the blended pencil area. I also used a Ranger Inkssentials White Pen to add some more highlights. (You know me and the battle of the highlights….).
I tell ya this card battled with me….. the ribbon, the twine and button….. they were out to get me and almost won, lo……
Several challenges out there which this card qualifies for:
Truly Scrumptious Challenge #39: Buttons n Bows
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge #56: Buttons n Bows
Annabelle Stamps: Say it with Bows
Oh and I won third place at Polka Doodles. How exciting….. woohoo what a way to end the week. Although I was unery yesterday and actually had a great, fun day at work, lol. Oh you don't wanna know
I better get going….. wish I had a magic wand to magically clean my craft room….. . But before I go, here's a little hint which of those cute babies is me:
A little birdie tells me that my fellow Sweet Pea Stamps DTs are also hiding hints on their blogs!
