Holley Brain Power!!

It's time for something very special!!!  Here's an amazing stamp designed by artist Sandra Caldwell!  This awesome image is ME!! This stamp is called Holley Brain Power!  I just love her Brain Power shirt along with her "brain" cap!! How cool is that?!?  What an honor to have Sandra create something so very special for me this year in honor of 7 years post brain surgery.  She is going to be putting this very stamp on sale, I think it's just perfect for all kinds of fun (and smart) cards for all your loved ones!
We will be having a contest and the winner will get a stamp from Sandra's store, Babycakes DND on Etsy.  You can find the stamp HERE.  It will be on sale for $1.50 for several days, so go grab it now!!Create a fun card or any other crafting project and share it here!  Contest will end on the 26th and the prize from the contest will include a goodie from Sandra and I will be giving away one of the awesome prizes you saw in the photos before the contest began (hint, it comes with stamps and diecuts)!!!

Also, I am using some GORGEOUS papers from Paper Temptress on this card.  The base of the card is Mica Citrine, the dark brown mica on the right is Bronze;  The image is printed on Heavenly white and layered on Mica Azalea then ruche.  The sentiments are layered on gold glossy paper.


In addition to the contest, there will be a general prize winner drawn from amongst the comments left for today as well!  No special question, but it would be cool if you tell Sandra what you think of the stamp she made me!



Here's where you will put a link to your creation using Sandra's great stamp:

Holley - it was so nice of Sandra to design a stamp for you. Not only has it been 7 years since surgery, but you are a very smart engineer. I can visualize a card with you and a computer on it.
