But first, let's congratulate the winner of last month's Halloween challenge, #6 Andrea B., who made the adorable card below. What a clever idea to turn the tree tops from our Central Park set into candies -- we love it, Andrea!
Congratulations, Andrea, you you will receive a free Raisin Boat stamp set of your choice! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name and item number of your set selection, as well as your mailing address. (To view your stamp set options, go to www.RaisinBoat.com, click on the Products tab, and click on any category or the catalog link.)
All of the Halloween entries were very creative! You can check out each entry by clicking on each person's name. Thank you to everyone who joined the challenge last month. We hope you will continue to share your wonderful creations with us!
Now for Challenge #28, "Thankful." This is a great time to reflect on all that you are thankful for. You can create a journal page, a scrapbook page, a place card for your Thanksgiving dinner, or greetings to have on hand to show your appreciation for a kind act or gift. It doesn't have to be a Thanksgiving theme -- any expression of gratitude will work for this challenge.
Remember you can rent or buy sets from Raisin Boat. No guilt in using a set for just one project, such as a challenge. We look forward to seeing your creations!
Here are the upcoming challenges for 2014 to help you get the perfect sets into your rental Pick List:
