So Ginak announced the total amount raised for Autism Speaks on her blog. She has a photo of a check for $3680!!! That is so awesome! As a Thank You to all the kind stampers that bought the Love You To Pieces stamp set, she is giving away a GIGA Scalloped Oval Punch! Could she be any nicer?!? Oh! And this set is not retiring, you will be able to purchase it indefinitely. And she will continue to send Autism Speaks $8 for each set sold!

And I thought I would do a little blog goody today as well! I am often overwhelmed by the kindness of my fellow stampers. Maybe it’s because we like to make cards – which essentially means we must like to send them – but overall, we’re a pretty friendly bunch. I have seen amazing stories of generosity on SCS. So this little Blog Goody is my Thank You to all of you for your generosity.

This prize includes several of my favorite things. There are several tiny stamps, a clear flourish-y stamp, Mono Aqua (I actually use Mono Multi, but some people like this kind too!), The Paper Studio assorted metallic mini brads (I use these all the time!), one of those little snap together boxes from Target (these work for storing those small cuttlebug dies!), and of course – a Making Memories paper piercer! And here’s the rules!

1. Post a comment on this post telling me something nice someone (preferably a fellow stamper) has done for you! (no, you do not have to subscribe, I don’t care how you get to my blog – just leave a comment on this post to enter!)

2. This contest will end on Tuesday, May 8th at 9pm CST.

3. A winner will be chosen using a random number generator and posted Tuesday night.

So Good Luck!! I’ve got a class in about 30 minutes (making those books) and tomorrow I am going to share a NEW CHALLENGE! It’s a personal challenge, but I would welcome any and all who would like to participate with me!
