    But I am still quite sad that they took the Wintergreen out.
    Thank you Mary for all the wonderful ideas you are so inspiring.

  34. I love your blog. Sorry I don’t have SU cardstock, I have been stamping for 20 years and have lots of cardstock but have never had any SU. My favorite cardstock is My Minds Eye. I would love to have the opportunity to see and use some SU cardstock. Thanks for the opportunity.

  35. My favorite paper from Stampin Up is all of them. I don’t think I can choose, but if I have to, it’s got to be Jersey Shores. The colors just make me happy. I hope that doesn’t sound corny. Thanks.

  36. I have too many favorites to list here, but Western Sky opens up so many possibilities for chic color palettes. This is a very generous offer for some lucky soul. Thanks so much!

  37. My favorite paper is the SU fall flowers. I just love the colours. Although I do really like the SU summer picnic papers with the tiny polka dots too!
