Our 2ND prize sponsor is another online store called:

and oh my their stamps are totally SWEET AND SASSY

They have some of the most sweetest stamps I have ever laid my eyes on...Here is a little bit about

In the fall of 2007, I was on a mission to find a cute knight stamp I could use for my son's 5Th birthday party invitations. I scoured the Internet, but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, so I decided I'd try my hand at drawing one.
I thought my knight turned out pretty cute. My intention was to photocopy my drawing, but after sharing one of the invitations on my blog, I found that others wanted him, too!
The encouragement from my family and friends was all it took and I decided to pursue the creation of my own line of stamps. So here I am, and it's been one awesome ride! I hope you'll join me as I continue on this journey.
Korin Sutherland

Our second place winner will receive a $20.00 gift certificate to spend at their online store.
