Awesome video, Sunny, and congrats on being one of 5 featured on Nichole's blog,! Good Luck, Sunny! Tinsel & Tags is in great demand and priceless by stampers, including me. Would love to win this kit! Had company and missed out on that cool Hero Arts October Kit also. Just goes to show if you snooze, you lose on those sell-outs. Appreciate your blog posts, YouTube videos, creativity and generosity.

You are so generous, Sunny! Fingers crossed I'll be a lucky winner. I didn't have the money for Tinsel and Tags and would seriously love this! The Hero kit isn't too shabby either.

I just discovered your blog via the PTI contest and I am beyond excited. While I enjoyed all of the videos, I voted for yours not only because your creations blew me away because I felt like I would have a wonderful time stamping with you if I knew you. Your enthusiasm made me want to join you for a night of stamping fun--or a whole day:-) I would love to see close ups of the bag with the winter scene that you created with the little house. I don't have the kit but my friend send she would lend me hers. Thank you for inspiring me.

Oh my goodness, I'd be THRILLED to win that sold-out Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit--somehow I missed seeing it due to a tragedy in our family, and by the time I saw it, it had sold out. I love that kit!!! I have 3 of the kits, a flower kit and the thank you kit that came the month after the flower kit, then got in on that wonderful wreath kit, I do love flowers and fall, but winter is pretty great too. :) I'm from a very snowy part of Canada, now I live in Ontario close to Lake Ontario, and we don't have as much snow...

I just found you today, was thrilled with your Papertrey Star Search video, thought that yours was the best although they were all great. And now I'm checking out your blog and have already peeked (and subscribed) to see your YouTube channel, and your projects look FABULOUS!!!

Due to long-standing physical challenges, I learn mainly from online sources for my I appreciate finding you today!

Best wishes to you, and again thanks,
