Whoo hoo!

I won a free GinaK stamp set today! Hooray!!! How you ask? I made this card for one of the April Release Party challenges on StampTV and this morning I found out I won! Awe. Some. While I am pleased with how this card turned out, I must confess it was a random drawing. ;) Love GinaK stamps. Love free stamps. Love, love, love free GinaK stamps!

This cute little pumpkin is from Carolyn King's set, Whimsical Autumn. The layout is a sketch by Theresa Momber that was the basis of the challenge. I colored with Copics. This is my favorite pumpkin color combo so far. I like pumpkin stamps so I keep trying them out. Nestabilities, a PTI button, OLD patterned paper, and some distress ink and it's a card! :)

Completely changing the topic now, but Target has some cute purses clearanced at really great prices. I got 3 yesterday for $11. Yeah, $11. You might want to check it out.

  4. I just had to comment on this for a different reason than probably expected: yes, your card is great (LOVE that pumpkin!), but what cracked me up was your little "update" on Target's clearanced purses!!! LOL!!! Loved that!
