Wow....isn't that a FABulous prize?!!  

Thanks so much Sylvia!  Make sure you also check out her blog too!


I'm so excited to introduce you to my Flashback Friday 22.0 winner:



I live in Arlington, VA with my husband Andrew and 4 1/2 and 1 1/2 year old daughters Ellie and Carina.  I have a full-time job working for the government, and sneak off to craft after the girls are in bed.  I've been crafting my whole life:  from latch-hook kits, cross stitch kits, and any other crafty pursuit that would keep me busy when I was a kid, to crocheting and scrapbooking in more recent years.  Last year I was introduced to clear stamps and was hooked.  (My arsenal now even includes some of those red rubber ones, but the clear kind are my favorite.)  I started blogging last June, rather tentatively, but am so glad that I did.  The creative blogging community is AMAZING!  There's so much inspiration, encouragement, and fun to be had!  I've quickly become addicted to making cards, a great use for all my scraps, and a great way to try new techniques and products.

This is so appropriate for me this week as I think about the loss of Dick Clark - I've had lots of flashbacks of happy dancing times! Thanks.
