Just wanted to share that I received my prize from last month's Reader's Art Quest. The prize was stamps from Rubber Dance Art Stamps. Bibi has some awesome stamps in her catalog and it was difficult choosing. The stamps came from Norway and arrived in record time. Here is a link to the first card I made with my new stamps: http://paulettesapaper-artzy.blogspot.com/2015/04/i-recently-won-these-stamps-from-rubber.html
