Oh Happy Day--I've Got a Winner!

Super huge thanks to all of you who hopped the  
Essentials by Ellen Winter 2015 Release Blop Hop

Today I'd like to announce that the winner of the Fancy Thanks stamp set,
according to, is TAUNYA BUTLER!

Congrats, Taunya! I've passed your name along and Ellen Hutson will be contacting you.
I hope that you enjoy your stamp set--it's a great one that's sure to be a classic!

A complete list of winners will be posted soon in the Ellen Hutson Classroom so 
head over there to see if YOU were a winner from comments left on other blogs in the hop.

And here's a celebratory card I whipped up, using Bold Blooms, one of the new sets
in the release. I white embossed the largest bloom and some leaves, together with
that fun sentiment, then ink distressed several colors of Distress inks over all.
I spattered some water and added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkle Clear sequins.

Since I did a bit of heat embossing, I'm entering this card in Virginia's View Challenge 13--
All Things Embossed.

Thanks for stopping by today!
