at Rubberneckers. They have the cutest scarecrow stamp to give away today. I got it with the purchase of Midnight & Jack (shown at left). This is an adorable stamp - and though I don't "do" Halloween - this guy would be right at home on a birthday or Christmas card with a big wrapped package popped up over the pumpkin!!!!! Today was the first time I played along with the Treasure Hunt - but after seeing the quality of stamps - I'm sure I'll pop in weekly. Check out the blog "Linda's Works of Heart". She has more details about the treasure hunt - but also has some BEAUTIFUL cards and other hand-stamped items on display.
This is a card I made a while ago. It uses a masking technique and sponged ink in Always Artichoke, Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, Rose Red & Chocolate Chip (I think!). The flower image is a brass stencil and is sponged using Always Artichoke, /Rose Red & Bravo Burgundy. The faux stitching was added with alternating rows of Chocolate Chip dots connected in a running crosstitch style faux stictching created with a white gel pen. The background stamps are a French Script from Jeffrey Allans and Wonderful Words from Stampin Up! I also used Itty Bitty Backgrounds (SURPRISE!) to add a distressed look and a little stardust stickles for glitz.
Thanks for looking. Hope everyone is having a great day today. Take time to give thanks, work a little, relax a little and play a little.

Hey Jill, thanks for the heads up...I just went to Rubbernecker and ordered a couple of stamps and got the free scarecrow, too.
