From the bottom of my heart...

THANK YOU ALL!!!

WOW!!! What a fun weekend. Here's the stats...

There were 2383 visits to my blog. HOW!! COOOOOOL!

157 folks commented. A TON of personal emails... Hmmm...that tells me you like FREE stuff. (hint...keep reading...)

Thanks so much to Shari for the invite to participate on the new Hero Arts blog and to Aaron (Mr. Hero Arts) for his donation of the great blog prizes.

So...wondering who won??? Picture this...me scrolling thru the comments, from the bottom to the top......and Rick, with his back turned said...STOP. Pretty scientific huh??

These 3 cool stamps go to..............SCRAPTHAT...

Here's her comment...

I just love your work! You inspired me to try the grunge flowers, and now I am headed out this afternoon to pick up a supply of blank Grungeboard!
Love love love all your work. The hero arts stamps would make great grunge flowers as you have proved and I solemnly swear to get them inky within moments should I be lucky enough to win them! LOL
Again thanks for always having great inspiration!

Here's her note...I think she's excited.

Hi Wendy!!
I was so surprised when I opened your blog this morning (as I do every morning!) I popped in Tim's blog, then over to yours and I"M SO EXCITED!! I never win on blogs! I was just making some grunge flowers yesterday...thinking I need more flower stamps! What fun! And I do promise to ink them up immediately. I have wanted to thank you for some time for all the great inspiration you provide!

I will for sure send you a scan of the work I create with the stamps!!

Thanks again!!
Take care and I wish you inspiration galore!:0)

Paula said...

Well I would love to have that beautiful card! Of course I would never actually send it to someone, It would be hoarded with love and care.

Jen said...

I fear the long ride to the Southern hemisphere might be too much for your lovely scallop card, but just so you know we're really here for the ART and not the FREE stuff- I'm going to comment anyway. (But of course, who can't help loving free stuff, especially when it's PAPERCRAFT free stuff!)

Stampin Cats said...

Of course we want the sheer scallop. Thanks .

Lulu said...

Who wouldn't love that beautiful card??? It is such stunning work!!! :)

Kay said...

OMG I would LOVE that card!!! It would be a great inspirational piece to look at and get me motivated to think outside my box.
Good luck to whomever wins it...I'll be sitting here envious of them but I know it will be treasured where ever it ends up!

Michelle McGee said...

Sure thing... I'll take it... you can just deliver it to me on Sunday.
