Do you have one of those scheming, manipulative mothers or mother-in-laws? Don't answer that. This card is my blatant, scheming and manipulative attempt to make my daughter homesick when she moves back to Central America in a few weeks. My plot is this. I'm gonna save it, and when I'm missing her more than I can stand it, I'm going to send this to her. I'll even sign it from Pillow Pup – make her miss her puppy even more. Ahh . . . I am evil. What a Mamma won't do to get her baby home (or at least to call more often).
I ordered this stamp (a Maryse Carrier image called "Thinking of You") as soon as I knew Stampotique Originals was going to be sponsoring our challenge. Isn't this a great stamp?! I want to thank Stampotique Originals and their fabulous Designers for supporting us and playing along with the Catered Crop FTR5 challenge.
And, now, drum roll please . . . Heidi Karpen submitted this beautiful card to our challenge that ended Thursday. And, now, according to Random.org, she's won a $30 gift certificate for stamps from Stampotique Originals. Heidi, just e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I'll give you the instructions to claim your prizes. Congratulations and have fun with all those amazing stamps.
Tomorrow we'll announce who "baked it best" and our next recipe. Or, if you just can't stand the wait and want to get a head start, just join the Catered Crop Facebook fan page.
So many fun challenges out in the blog-so-sphere this week. I used the colors and inspiration from the Play Date Cafe challenge (PDCC69) and CASE Study Challenge #27. It's a two-fer-one challenge. Our Top Chef Libby Hickson is on the Play Date Cafe design team, so be sure to go see her beautiful inspiration.
I used the template from the Papercraft Star #33 challenge, where blog visitors get to vote for the winner – so, darlin's go vote for my card!
