Thank you everyone for playing along with ours and Mercy's sketch challenge.  I used Random.org and our winners are #8 Kerri (challenge) and #24 Amanda (FF).  Please email me your addresses to sparklecreationsrubberstamps@live.com and I will send out your prizes soon.

I know I still owe some people prizes and I will get those out today.  I apologize as I've been extremely busy with my day job.  Though I'm exhausted, I did have a lovely time at the Managers Conference and here's a picture of Brent and I in our fabulous 'matchy, matchy' outfit.


Here is Kerri's lovely card that she made for the challenge.  I love the paper piecing she did on this.  I may eventually just have to use this stamp to make some Christmas cards! 


I hope you all have a great Monday!  Don't forget to come back tomorrow for our next challenge and we're releasing new stamps next weekend!

Freebie Friday - Rin and Snowman

For my day job, we have our annual Manager's Conference, and I will be away from the store for the weekend.  All orders placed in the store will ship out on Monday, Nov 8th.  I will also answer any emails at that time as well.

Today's Freebie Friday is a Farming Oliver stamp.  You have until Sunday night at midnight to comment and the winner will be announced on Monday with the SCRS Challenge #17 winner.


I'm trying to use up my 'already' colored images and here's another Christmas card to add to the stack.  This Rin is absolutely my favorite of the Christmas collection.  I also had a mini craft crisis and had to do some stamping surgery, lol.  While altering my sentiment, I tore a bit of the mounting foam.  But some liquid glass came to my rescue!  I swear you can use that stuff to glue anything together!
Paper: Basic Grey Jovial
Stamps: Sparkle Creations, sentiment is Amuse
Nestabilities, Copics, Snowflake Punches, Crystal Stickles, PTI Buttons, Twine, Rhinestones, Crystal Stickles, and MS Border Punch

I hope you all have a great Friday!  Though, I'll be working, I always love going to our conferences.  What are you all doing this weekend?  Any big plans?  Crafting?  Doing my laundry, lol...
