Thanks to FireCracker Designs By Pamela

Ouuu! I won, I won, I won! And I couldn't feel any luckier!

Here's how it all happened: I was checking in on some of my favorite blogs last week when I stopped by Trash to Treasure Art, a rather beautiful place to find inspiration and OK, a bit of jealous, too.

Anyhow, my random hopping turned into "official" hopping that resulted in my winning the August FireCracker Design by Pamela blog hop!

And I got to choose a prize! My pick was Women in Character. It's a wonderful, strange sort of set and you really, really need one of your own!

The designs are cool, and the stamps themselves are very high quality -- seriously, do you know how hard it is to emboss teeny, tiny text? Well, this sentiment, from the Women in Character set, is great! It embossed perfectly!

These stamps are uncut and unmounted. I cut mine apart and am using them as if they are acrylics -- honest. A little spritz of water on the rubber backing and they suction nicely onto an acrylic block.

This set includes a total of nine individual stamps with four images and five phrases: The card you see here uses two of the images and one phrase.

It's my first creation from this set which I guarantee I'll be using frequently. So, run over to Pamela's place and don't be surprised if you run into me over there, because I'll definitely be purchasing some of her wonderful stamps!
