Wednesday Winners #98

Good morning Fantabulous Friends,

Have you all been checking out our Wednesday Winner's posts lately? I've been noticing that in our last several challenges many of our Top 5 picks are fairly new to the blogging world! Some of the gals only have between 1 - 10 followers so I would highly encourage you all to not just check out the pics here, but to actually click on the link of the people that have made the Top 5 and check out each and every blog. Another suggestion is to go back and see some of the other entries because often, several of the posts were almost picked for the Top 5. That means there is a ton of talent out there and these gals (and guys) need our support!

Since doing the Wednesday posts, I have found so many incredibly amazing blogs that my head is spinning and my heart is swooning! ;) Ladies, allow yourself some "me" time and sit back and peruse our Challenge Me Monday & Wednesday Winners posts, even if you did not enter the challenge yourself. You won't be sorry (I promise!) and chances are, you might even make a few new friends! I often have to remind myself to take the time to check out different blogs and that is why I love doing the Wednesday posts so much...because it encourages me to make that time! If you want to see what I'm talking about, check out last week's challenge right HERE. I hope you have as much fun with it as I do. If you don't have the time, at least make a goal of clicking on our Top 5 picks. These ladies (and gentlemen) ;) have worked so hard and they deserve our attention! Of course, you'll want to follow our design team members and guest designers as well, right? ;0)

Alright, well this is totally off topic, but as I mentioned last week, I didn't get a chance to use the awesome stamps provided by K. Andrew Designs for our Monday challenge, but I did get my project done to show you all today! I hope you all enjoy my creation. I had so much fun making it and OMGosh, the stamps I used are so very versatile. It was a Valentine's Day set, but can be used for many other occasions. I just love it when you purchase something (although this set was sponsored) and realize you get more bang for your buck than you thought and that's what you will get with Kristal's stamps! For details on my card please check out my personal blog.


For this week, we have another awesome sponsor -- Joy's Life. Wow, she has some super cute stamps! Be sure to check them out if you haven't already and even if you have, pop in to see what's new! I just love how she incorporates a bold font with an elegant font in lots of her sets. Such a clever idea! Thanks Joy's Life for sponsoring our prize this week!

Thanks for joining us today, now it's time for this week's winner and the Top 5!
