Miss Ewe and Owly Hoo Stamp Set WINNER!!

Hi everyone and happy Thursday!! Wow, this week is flying by!! Before I announce the winner of the K Andrew Designs Owly Hoo stamp set, I have a project to enter into a few challenges today :)

I used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Kraft Paper (thanks again, Sabrina!!) for the base of the bag and cut it from Plantin Schoolbook using my Gypsy at 7.50" x 11.77".  The yellow and orange polka dot papers are from the DWCV Mango Frost Stack. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4 and punched a hole on each end with my Crop-a-dile. I threaded jute twine through the holes to tie the label onto the bag.

The adorable ewe is from From My Kitchen, cut at 2" and flipped. I embossed her with the Sizzex swirls embossing folder to give her a fleecy look and attached all the layers together with foam tape for dimension.

The flowers are from Plantin Schoolbook and the button centers are a Sizzex die. I added some crystal gems in the centers.

The tag is also from Plantin Schoolbook and the buttons are from the same Sizzex die. Miss Ewe is from the brand new K Andrew Designs All About Animal stamps!! There are so many awesome sentiments on this stamp set!! I love them and couldn't wait to use them:

Click HERE to purchase your own stamps or to see the entire line of K Andrew Designs stamps!! I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Cooking With Cricut Challenge #70 - Anything but a card, use yellow and polka dots
  2. Paper Playtime Challenge #65 - Tag or use a tag on your project and a sentiment
  3. Die Cutting Divas Challenge #49 - Buttons, bows and/or bling

I was trying to make this fit several challenges and I kept in mind Diana's Thankful Thursday challenge at DL.Art... I used kraft paper, twine and flowers, as per her requirements, and then I got so caught up using the new stamps and the ewe, that I completely forgot the main requirement was for it to be a thank you card! So I can't enter it there...sorry, Diana!

Now to the winner of the K Andrew Designs Owly Hoo stamp set from the Getting Cricky Promo Week of Projects and U R So Sweet Blog Hop!! I want to sincerely thank all of you who stopped by - some of you every single day!! I truly appreciate each of you and I wish I could send you all a stamp set!! I also want to thank those of you that took the time to earn extra entries into the drawing!! I appreciate it so much!!

After I counted all the comments for the six days, plus all of the extra chances, there were over 600 entries!! That was a lot of cutting!! I took the name of the person plus the day the comment was left and printed them out...
