#90-Sentimentally Yours-The Stamping Boutique



Well, it seems people enter our challenge but can't be bothered to check back to see if they won.  It's rather disheartening because I see an awful lot of regular players here and it makes me sad when people don't claim their prizes.  We have a ton of fabulous sponsors on board with us this year, so please be sure to check back to see if you have won.  This is the last redraw I will do for challenge #87.  
Lou Sims is our third time's a charm winner for a $7.5 euro COLORInk Digital gift certificate!  Congratulations Lou!  Please contact Kelly to claim your prize!
