Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments! I went to random.org and did a random integer generator to pick a blog candy winner, and here she is:

Congratulations to Linda Beeson! She said:

Your cards are adorable! I seem to like to stamp FALL themed cards the most. I think it is the colors that are associated with fall that I like the most.

Please email me your address Linda so that Impression Obsession can send you your stamps!

The general consensus seemed to be that people have moved on from summer and are ready for fall. So, in honor of the upcoming season, I am posting a card I made at my Virtual Stamp Night last weekend. The challenge was to make a card using inchies. I made a candy corn card (say that three times fast) by using candy corn inchies and layers of cardstock to make the entire card look like a giant candy corn. All of the images are by Impression Obsession. Of course, I couldn't resist posting one more summer themed card:

The margarita card was also made during the VSN and also uses IO images. The challenge was to make a card inspired by one of the Joanne Fluke novels. I chose "Key Lime Pie Murder." Although technically a margarita card could be for any time of the year, this particular margarita image makes me think of summer. After all, it does have a beach umbrella stuck in it.

And finally....

My crown and tote bag prize came yesterday from Paper Crafts magazine. I am embarassed to say how excited I was to get crown in the mail.

Is it a crown or a tiara? pretty cool. Am I correct in remembering that you hate candy corn?
