I Hate to Torture You!

Firstly; I am pooped! Those stampers WORE ME OUT today! Whoa Baby!!! We had so much fun; like crazy fun... and surprise, surprise I have lost my voice!

I will have a FULL POST all about the event soon, our vendors... pictures, etc; but I need to recover a bit first... I do need to say; I am so grateful to be a part of Splitcoaststampers and Stampin' Up! and have all these wonderful stamping friends as a result. I feel so blessed today; and just so darn grateful!

I am taking the day off tomorrow to spend time with my family who I miss terribly! Be back Monday!

Now back to the contest!


I feel so bad you all you ladies looking up all the companies; searching for HOURS! And WOW, you all did such a great job

FYI... Now the contest is NOT OVER (just keep reading) but I released all the comments (below) And we officially have a winner for the Grand Prize!!!
Stefanie said...

Wow! I'm not sure about those eggs, but here's my guess from the top down:

Paper Trey Inc
Stamping Bella
Splitcoast Stampers
Pursue Your Art
Gina K
Corduroy Lion
A Muse Rubber Art Stamps

GREAT JOB Stefanie!!! Stefanie has been sworn to secrecy since she won. She will be winning a FULL Goodie Bag from our IL SCS Gathering, and a bunch of other cool stuff!

The STUMPER apparently was Corduroy Lion! Rebecca from Corduroy Lion has been having so much fun watching this contest... and I was surprised more of you hadn't heard of her cool stamps! Her images are so sweet and elegant! Plus she has a super cute peeps stamp in her collection... go check them out! Go... right now... and then come back here and finish reading.

Funny note: guess who won those adorable egg stamps and the event? ME!!!! I was thrilled, and so glad the girls let me put MY NAME in the door prize drawing! SO awesome, I have BIG PLANS for those adorable stamps!

Did I mention the Goodie bag has Stamping Bella Stamps in it? And some super cool stuff from Amuse!

Now remember ALL the other entries get put in a second drawing for ANOTHER GOODIE BAG and a bunch of other crafty goodness... and then all you BLOGGERS can still win some stuff including ONE MORE GOODIE BAG and some other fabulous stampy things!!!

Did I mention the Goodie bags contain stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms and Missy B. Designs too?

You can still play; just post a little something... anything at all... to this thread... or the last thread... ALL the entries will be combined. Bloggers; just link to this post or the last post, and don't forget to include a link to your blog. Bloggers will be in a separate drawing to win a third Goodie Bag and other fun stuff!!!

Did I mention the Goodie Bag contains a Hand Stamped card from Artist/Stamping Goddess Nichole Heady? Did you Check out her AMAZING new stamp set just released today? I have seen it in person, and Sarah Vrolyk got to take it home! Lucky ducky! At least I know where Sarah lives. I am totally setting up a stamping play-date JUST so I can borrow it! AND some of her cool Amuse images. Wait till you SEE what she made at the gathering today! SO CUTE!!!

Contest is over on Monday, April 2nd at Midnight Central Time...

anyway, this was a tough one and I didn't know all of these companies... so thanks for the heads up!!! Some day I will make it up to see you in IL.
Hope your voice comes back! Enjoy your time with your family- you deserve it!
