No, I haven't fallen of the edge of the earth. :) Summer brings lots of fun time with family and friends, which I love, but leaves little time for crafting. I'm woefully overdue in posting a proper thank you, though, and couldn't let this pass another day.
First CONGRATULATIONS to Nancy of Nancy's Creative Mess. Nancy recently celebrated her 1000th post! Yes, with three zeros. I haven't reached 100 posts yet; I can't imagine the dedication it takes to reach 1,000.
To celebrate her huge milestone, Nancy hosted a giveaway on her blog. Guess which lucky blogger won the gift certificate to Papertrey Ink. Sweet, huh!
Thanks, Nancy! I paired the gift certificate with one from my husband and got all this crafty goodness. Sorry about the bad lighting. It was night - I was ready to cut into some of the paper and play with the stamps. Had I waited to take a photo in the morning, you would have gotten a "messy desk" photo instead. So at least here everything looks all tidy. Thanks again! Rachel
