DCD's 2022 Ohio Stamp Junkie "Background Bowl" Challenge! (and Giveaways!)

 Hello!

The Ohio Stamp Junkies recently met for a "mega-meet-up" and it was one none of us will ever forget!  There were tons of prizes, snacks, make'n takes, snacks, contests, lunch, chatting, laughing and more snacks all while "a river ran through it!"  It didn't just rain...it poured and rained sideways getting a lot of stuff dampened, but not our crafty spirits!

I had to dry out everything in my swag bag (which was packed with wonderful supplies donated by many of our favorite shops.)  My patterned paper pack sat under my Gemini Jr. for weeks, but it's still not quite flat:(

But I digress... I asked for brave souls willing to take a random background that may not have been finished or even pretty and make art with it.  They knocked it out of the park again, like I knew they would!  I had a participant drawing for a gift card from Pear Blossom Press (Winner Claire Lamb!) and am having an additional drawing from the YouTube comments for a fun prize package (USA) or a gift certificate (if non-USA.) 

Here's the video! (I linked what products I could below and at my YT Channel description box.  AFIL-thank you!)

Supplies:

Until next time!
