Party Hat and Mouse Party Winners!

Hi Everyone,

This is a quick post but I’ve learned a couple of lessons.

I need to say I will post in the evening and if I get it done sooner, then all the better! Today has been super crazy day with all sorts of unexpected hurdles to jump and mountains to climb.

Congratulations to the random winner of our NEW - Not Even Released Yet' Mouse Party Stamp set was Linda from Poulsbo. WA. Hi Linda, we emailed you as we need your mailing address please.

With contests - I’ve discovered it’s way too hard to pick one winner and I even asked for help!
Everyone agreed that every entry was very cool and each one inspired different ideas. As a manufacture, it's great to see samples that use lots of our product but the challenge said to use any of our product(s) in some way with our free crown or party hat pattern you can (download HERE) from the last post. In the end, we simply could not pick 1 winner, so we threw all the entries into a little box and pulled a winner – and then awarded $25.00 runner up prizes for everyone else!

The $50.00 winner of our random draw was Marlene Bender and I was so happy as I adore the Java Queen Crown she created! Marlene used stamps from our Coffee & Tea Clear Art Stamp set and the 'crown' stamp is from our Favorite Fellas Stamp Set. The paper looks like Graphic 45.
Here is a super pretty crown designed by runner up Samantha Sibbet that could have also easily won. We adored the colors she used with the little birdy tea party image from our Feathered Friends Cotton Scraps - plus her daughter looks so adorable wearing her crown!

Robin from MN was a runner up with her innovative Poker Crown, using an image from our Wacky & Wonderful Booklet (sadly this booklet is sold out) with playing cards and our little stamp logo which looks like she punched and glued to real poker chips.
We also loved this fun glitter crown that runner up Julie Campbell created using paper from our Earthy Paper Pad, our Sexy Little Number Stamps and she cut a couple of crowns from our Radiant Paper Pad. It looks like Julie also used a sticker from our Wonderful Wonderful Women Stickers on the Lady's head.
Runner up Amber Tosh was the only entry who used the Party Hat Pattern (link in last post) and we totally loved her cute hat with the satin trim and top, pom poms, the chipboard # 5 and the cute kids she cut out from our Homemade Image & Journal Notes Booklet. Amber also used paper from our Classic Paper Pad and the red check is from the Earthy Pad.

We all fell in love with this adorable photo of Ambers daughter wearing her party hat!

So many hundreds of people have downloaded our free patterns I had to ask our graphic designer Cindy van Koll to repost the patterns with an unlimited download HERE.

Thank you to each of you who sent in an entry and to all of you who love our products and subscribe to this Blog and/or condensed Creative Ideas Newsletter!
Wishing you joy & creativity!
