Boho Birthday & Blog Candy Winner

For this card I cut into another one of the new SU stamp sets - Wing It. I thought this set was pretty cool and bohemian looking - I love boho!!
This card also uses the new Wanted paper and some of the older Petal & Paisley paper from the spring mini The flourish square stamp is from Fancy Pants and is stamped in versamark and embossed with white EP - the edges are inked with distress ink then wiped off the embossed image.
I went a little crazy with the hemp on this one.... but I really liked the way it looked peeking out from behind the rose.
I had the BEST time reading all the comments from the blog candy giveaway! I even went back and jotted down some of the reasons that people stamp.... it was basically broken down into 3 categories:
#1 - A creative outlet - I don't know how many times I read this exact phrase on a comment - but it seems that that is a major reason why alot of us stamp and papercraft. I counted at least 85!
#2 - Relaxation - Therapy - "My time" - Alot of people stamp just for the pure joy of having soem time to themselves to relax and unwind after a long or stressful day. I counted at least 63!
#3 - The joy of giving - I counted at least 40 people that like to create just so they can enjoy giving their handmade creations away.
There were also lots of other reasons mentioned.... love of coloring, "can't draw a line to save my live" (this is the category I would fall into)... and many more. Take the time to go and read the comments - they are really interesting!
And the winner of the Blog Candy is.......

Hi! Why do I love it so??? Well, it's an outlet for when I have a HARD day as a SAHM and pet sitter... like today when my 4yr old decided to stick some popcorn kernels up her nose. I'd expect this from my 18 mon old boy but not HER! Luckily I was able to get them outta htere.!!thanks !Bobbie "
