I won a Christmas Card Making Contest!

Isn't this just the cutest little guy. I made a two coaster mini photo album today, isn't it cute.

I think that I should buy a lottery ticket. Some wonderful things have happened in the past few weeks and everyday it seems like something else good happens to me.

I had entered a Christmas Card contest about 6 weeks ago and submitted my Believe Santa card which fit into their Vintage Christmas card category. We were supposed to post a link to the contest to our blog but we couldn't ask people to vote for our card. I completely forgot about the contest until today. I checked Susan Daly's blog today and low and behold my Believe Santa card was shown and listed as the winner in the Vintage Christmas Card category.
I get to choose one Stampin Up stamp set with a value of up to 25.00. Perfect for me. While I was a SU demo until November there was one set that I really wanted but never bought. Inspired by Nature was on my wish list but my wish list was longer than my money so I never bought it. That is the set I chose. Can't wait to get it.

As you all know if you read my blog I am a guest Design Team member for Artistic Outpost Stamps and my appointment is for the December 15 release and will extend throughout 2009 as needed. They are releasing 3 new stamp sets and I had the privilege of working with one very special set. The sneak peaks start on December 10 and I will be showing a sneak peak every day until the release on December 15.

I have more Design Team news to share with you soon but not quite yet. I will just say that I applied for another guest DT spot which was supposed to be a one month spot the end of December. Today I got an email asking for me to do a specific challenge and they would let me know within 48 hours. In about 2 hours, after submitting my project, I got an email offering me a different DT spot starting in February. If it has to do with stamping and I get to color I am okay with that :)

Well, I am going to quit boring you now and go clean off my stamping table before I go to bed.

See you tomorrow.
