And the winner is........

You have to be quick to beat Sweet the writer of the Sweetland Paper Treats blog. She figured out the answer for my 'What is it?' contest within an hour after it was posted. Others were correct (or nearly correct) but Sweet was the fastest. I will contact you, Sweet, to obtain your mailing address so I can get the BFC gift card to you . Congratulations Sweet, and thank you to everyone who entered. Please visit this blog as often as you can because you never know when I'll come up with another contest. Remember the clever early bird gets the gift card. LOL!

The photo here shows some of the yummy craft goodies I couldn't resist at Ben Franklin Crafts this weekend. Starting from the back are two American Crafts 12x12 Xmas print double-sided cardstock sheets. I bought multiples of each design because I'm not sure what I'll create with them. My most exciting find of the weekend were the new Xmas Sister Stamps. There are three different ones and they are all as cute as can be. I can't wait to get started on my Xmas projects so I picked up a word background Cling stamp. and two wooden ones all from Hero Arts. They should work well with my new AC cardstock papers. The pretty, sparkly picture frame really caught my eye and will be the home for our 2011 Christmas photo. The beads will be used to fashion some gifts and were chosen because of their beautiful neutral tones.....safe choices if you don't know what color the recipient will wear. Can you see the beautiful wooden bracelet in the photo? It looks like inlaid wood but actually it is handpainted. I bought it for a gift but I think it will be a gift to myself (heh, heh). It was very reasonably priced and would make a beautiful present for anyone who appreciates jewelry with island influence. The Bead Shoppe in BFC has many designs from which to choose. I hope that you enjoyed this peek into my shopping basket and will return to see what I make with these goodies. Have a good week!
