Winners, winners, WINNERS!

Well hey everyone! Thanks so much for your great patience while we sorted out through all of the wonderful entries in our "Where do your Belles 'n Whistles stamps Live" Challenge as well as all of the lovely comments that were posted on each of the blogs through the blog hop we had...WHEW!

NOW, one last winner, the winner of the $50 gift certificate to Belles 'n Whistles, chosen randomly from the finishing comments that were left here upon completion of the blog hop...this winner is (and please contact me):

Maria Therese

WHEW! Was this not a big giveaway, LOL? This release is truly a special one so the celebration should be festive. The switch from rubber to clear is something to celebrate, the biggest reason being that the Elisabeth Bell designs you all love are still affordable and are still high quality with the genuine photopolymer they are produced from. Staying with red rubber stamps would have meant a price increase this year, from $8.95 to $9.95 and up! My goal at Belles 'n Whistles is to try to keep Elisabeth's wonderful designs obtainable and yet retain the highest quality possible for your crafting enjoyment. ;D

I hope you all enjoy this new release of cuties! Thank you all again for joining us in our challenge and our blog hop...both great successes!

Happy stamping clearly!
Summer =)
