November's Prize Patrol!

Hey, lovelies!  I almost let the month slip by without announcing this month's Prize Patrol Winner.  Prize Patrol?  What is that?  Let me explain...in addition to the monthly random winner selected from all of the challenge entries, I also scour the Internet seeking out fab designs using Bombshell Stamps.  I hit all the card forums and hot spots including Splitcoast Stampers, Paper Craft Planet, Flickr, Facebook, the BSS Gallery, etc. and I don't stop until I find "the one".  Basically, "the one" creation that makes me sit back and say "WOW"!

This month I ran into so many beautiful creations, I didn't know what I was going to do, but then I came across one in particular that kept me coming back for more.  Please give a big round of applause to this month's Prize Patrol Winner...Karen Hyland!  Karen shared this exquisite creation on the Bombshell Stamps Facebook page and I think you'll agree that it is something special!

Karen used the Vintage Raceway stamp set on her zippy creation.  I just love the gears used as the background for the race car and the distressed text/patterned paper combined with those chic antique hues.  Terrific work, Karen!  I'll be contacting you soon regarding your prize which is a $20.00 gift certificate to use in the Bombshell Stamps Shop.  Or feel free to contact me directly via email at cvaladez@comcast.net.  Congratulations!

Remember, winning some amazing free images from Bombshell Stamps each month is easy.  All you have to do is enter one (or more) of our monthly challenges for a chance at the random drawing or continue to create awesome projects and share them on your blog and in your favorite forums for an opportunity to be discovered via the Prize Patrol.  The key to winning is that you have to play, because someone has to win and why shouldn't it be you!

Catch you next time!

  3. OMG!!! Thank you so much! I can't believe that you picked my piece!

    I am only relatively new to using the techniques in this card, but I have gained so much inspiration from visiting various blog pages and forums, and trying soak in some of the amazing ideas and techniques these talented artists have.

    But I also have to give a special thanks as well to the wonderful ladies from my favourite Paper Crafting store Paper Flourish (http://www.paperflourish.com.au) who have also given me so much encouragement and inspiration.

    Thank you so much again!
