Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

Happy Saturday before Turkey Day!  I am heading off to our first Thanksgiving meal of the season today! I am super excited that I am cooking this year on the big day!  However, today I am going to make pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes to bring to the dinner along with a bottle of wine.

Now on to the winner of my poll I conducted this week.  I used Random.org and numbered the names of the participants  and wallah… the winner is Missy from Quick Chick Designs!   I could not embed the widget into this blog… totally frustrating.  If you know how please let me know! I think you are going to LOVE the stamp set ( I am going bananas for it) and the holiday themed Stickles.   The neat thing about the stamp set is that it is compatible with the Cricut Cartridge, Art Philosophy.  I will contact you to for you mailing address!

As for my decision, I decided to go with the Cinch (it is on sale at Jo-Ann’s for 40% off)…the Imagine, is a given.. of course I will get it! 🙂 Thank you for all your feedback.  It really helped! I would have never knew about the Cinch and I was put to ease about the ink consumption for the Imagine.

Last week I participated in my first Close to My Heart card workshop.  It was super fun and the ladies I met there where a stitch.  They had me laughing more than creating!  It was a great time.  Here are a few cards we made.

MPS Christmas Card Challenge

My Pink Stamper just announced a Christmas Card Challenge.  I was so excited about this since I wanted to execute an idea I have been brewing up.  Most of all I am thrilled I get to kill two birds with one stone!  That is sooo my kind of project!

Both my girls are in gymnastics and we just adore their coaches.  It takes a special person to want to take on the challenge to teach a 2 and 3-year-old how to jump, tumble and balance… I call it “herding cats”.  Because of that I wanted to do something a little more than just give them a card or a “homemade treat”.   I decided that I will give them both Starbucks gift cards during the holiday.   They are both young college students that are being fueled by the sweet nectar of energy, so I figured they would appreciate a holiday theme gift card-card screaming a blissful cup of joe! 

So not only did I come up with a fun card, I made two of them and now I am done with that “holiday to-do” WAY ahead of schedule!  Yay!

Thanks for coming and having a piece of  “killing two birds with one stone” pie with me!
