I stamp.

I love stamping.

I love challenges.

I love Paper Crafts magazine.

A contest that combines all three? Oh yah! I’m there!

You know where this is going now, don’t you?


So last week, I got a very exciting “birthday present” in the form of an e-mail a few hours before my birthday. An e-mail from the lovely P. Kelly Smith saying I was one of the 15 winners of the 2011 Stamping Royalty Card Contest. To say that made me smile would be an understatement!

With the amount of entries in this fabulous challenge, I really didn’t think I had much of a chance. I did have a feeling about the card that won though and said to a friend of mine, if I have the slightest chance, this will be it. It was the one! Oh yes, the card won in the love category. Nothing quite like a love note is there?

This is actually my second win at Stamping Royalty but it doesn’t get any less exciting the second time around. I also submitted and won a “royal spot” in 2009. It’s a contest dear to my heart and I keep my tiara on a shelf in my stamp room.

I cannot wait for my Stamping Royalty package to arrive. Seriously! Did you see all the cool stamps and product it contains! I’ll be stamping up a storm for a long time with it!

I’d love to share my winning card with you but that will have to wait until October 11th when the issue goes on sale. All the winning cards will be published in the Nov/Dec 2011 issue of Paper Crafts magazine. I can’t wait to see all the beautiful stamped designs.

I can’t wait to see who else won in this category so why don’t you join me as I hop over to Paper Crafts Connection and check it out?

Happy stamping!
