I'm a Winner too on Election Day!!


Hey everyone!

I'm back with another post today...told ya I will be keeping busy! Soooooo yesterday you might have caught my little sneak peek to THIS post...

I am thrilled to have won the SILVER medal for most cards completed in the Pink Poison Olympics! I completed a total of 31 cards! I want to send a huge shout out to Marie at Pink Poison for having this awesome challenge and for offering such awesome prizes for winning! I am now the lucky winner of FOUR free stamp sets and another Guest Spotlight...thanks Marie...you ROCK!

Along with this amazing win, though, comes a decision I made early on while creating the cards.

A few years ago, a friend of mine lost her daughter to a terminal illess and the impact it had on me was life-altering. Throughout her struggle, they spent months at the Ronald McDonald house in Minnesota as they awaited treatment after treatment so far away from home.

Even with their precious one gone, this family is amazing and has committed to give back to the RMH each year with not only monetary donations, but all sorts of items-foods, supplies, coloring books for the kids, etc.
That being said, I have decided to donate all 31 of my cards to the RMH for siblings, family members, and volunteers at the RMH. I know 31 won't be enough, but I hope to do more. If you are interested in doing the same, please let me know. Even if it's not for the RMH, I would encourage you to do the same for another organization where it would really brighten someone's day.

Ihope you've enjoyed just a few cards here that I made for the challenge. I will plan to have them up on SCS soon and will also let you know when my Spotlight goes live on the Pink Poison blog so you can see them there too...she has QUITE the stamina for posting pics on Blogger!! I can't say the same for myself LOL!
You should really check out the new Nov. releases on the Pink Poison website, too...they are fabulous! I can't wait to get mine in the mail and will definitely be back to show you what I do with them!!
Last but not least, if you haven't gone out and voted yet...WHAT are you waiting for??? Starbucks is even giving away a free coffee when you show them you voted...how awesome is THAT? Hugs, Jessica :)
