And My Sale-A-Bration Blog Candy Winner IS . . . .

Grace-kelly-oscar1My title is a perfect prelude for the Oscars tonight (which I will be camped in front of, by the way).  However, the winner I’m announcing is for my Sale-A-Bration Blog Candy Giveaway, originally posted here.

Thank you for your participation!  There were over 800 comments in response to “What is your favorite “go to” ink color?”  My personal favorite, and often the only ink color on my clean and simple cards, is Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso.  Basic Black would be a close second.  After reviewing the blog candy comments, it’s evident that you want to add Chocolate Chip and Old Olive to the ink “essentials” list, too

And the winner IS . . . .  Shirley Barton (randomly selected #362)

I think my favorite color is Baja Breeze. Sometimes a color speaks to your soul and this one does that for me.  Love all the One Minute to Wow! tutorials.

Shirley, please email me ([email protected]) in the next 24 hours with your U.S. mailing address and I’ll get your goodies off to you right away.

Pals Guest Stamper: Leah O.


Gotta love that adorable buckle “latch” on Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Leah O’Brien’s card.  I’m so proud to feature her work as today’s Stampin’ Pretty Pals Guest Stamper.

P1010194-WMThe little flowers are swirly-licious!

Very clever how the flowers remain a focal point once the buckle is “unfastened!”

LEAH’S STAMPIN’ TIPS!  I used Soft Suede as my base, Crumb Cake as my liner and of course, the lovely (and my latest fave!) Sale-A-Bration Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is courtesy of Artistic Etchings and the little flowers have Stampin’ Up! Jewels Basic Pearls centers.  I always like the buckle card as something different for a ?fancy fold.”
