Wonderful Wednesday Giveaway - Artistic Outpost!

There are alot of pictures in this post -- just a little warning...I did it so that the questions about the flap for the Triple Play Technique (February 2008 Technique Junkie Newsletter) could be answered visually. I think the pictures will help!


The giveaway today is for these really cool Artistic Outpost stamps called "Keeper" (below). This fun plate is in the vintage-chic style that AO is known for. I am always thrilled with the variety, intelligence and wit that is the trademark style of Artistic Outpost! I love the sayings on this one -- and the "You're a keeper" makes this just right for card-giving for the boys in our lives. Make sure to visit the AO site -- and tell Robyn you we sent ya!

Just a little more about the Triple Play card -- I was asked about the flap. I took a picture with the flap open:
And another with the flap closed and flat:
I think my favorite parts of this card are the fishing lure on the front panel (with my feather) and the string of fish in the corner. I hope the lucky winner of the giveaway likes it too!
To enter the give away for the Artistic Outpost rubber stamp sheet and the card shown above, simply leave a comment on this blog entry telling me that you would like to enter by 11:59pm EST on Sunday, February 15th. No other entry methods will be included in the give away. If you email me to enter, your entry will NOT be considered a valid entry. When you leave the comment, make sure to put your NAME in the comment -- if you enter your comment as "Anonymous", I cannot give you the prize! Blogger does NOT record your email address for me, so you will need to check back to find out if you have won or include your email address in your comment so that I can notify you. A good way to do this is like so: phuntoon at optonline dot net -- it will help protect your privacy! I will have a random number generator pick one number from the comments to select one winner. Each give-away is separate, so to be eligible for a specific item you must enter that day's contest on the post where it is listed. Enter today -- good luck!

Congratulations to Sigrid Clack, the winner of this giveaway!
