And Sweet Pea Stamp’s Last Winner is…

Well, I have procrastinated enough on this very last post. I say “procrastinated” because of all the things that I was doing just to keep from creating this post. Even at 8 p.m. Sunday evening, I decided that it was too late for me to accomplish anything. Now it is 1:03 p.m. on a Monday, and I decided that I needed to get it over with.

With my blathering stopped, I will now announce our final One Sweet Challenge winner! Drum roll please…oops I had to let our drummer go. LOL

The winner is

Wendy Lynn of

November One Sweet Challenge – Part Two

As you all know by now that Sweet Pea Stamps store is closing its doors on November 25. We hate to see it, but do not worry about the upcoming winner announcement. The winner for our last challenge will be announced on November 26 with our very last post.

For our last challenge we have a theme of “a thank you project, or a Thanksgiving themed project." Let’s see what our designers have created.

Annie has created a Thanksgiving project with the
rubber stamp “Happy Thanksgiving” by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.

Debbie’s many-layered card uses
Karen Middleton’s “Wings of Hope.”

Vannessa’s fun card was created with
Sandra Caldwell’s “Old Maid Bee.”

Carolyn’s beautiful card using Karen Middleton’s “Into the Light.”

It’s with bittersweet fondness that we say…
“Thanks for everyone’s support these past years and
Thanks for stopping by!”

November OSC Challenge – Part One

It is with a sad heart that we are announcing the closing of Sweet Pea Stamps. As of November 25, 2015, there will be no more Sweet Pea Stamps so now is the time to complete your collection. Lynette has represented some of the most diverse artists that we know and Sweet Pea Stamps will be missed. I know that I speak for all of her designers saying that we have enjoyed working with Sweet Pea Stamps and are so thankful that we had this amazing opportunity. We will still see Lynette around on Facebook, so we have not lost her. You will also be seeing some of our designers still creating with most of her images that she has had available.

We also want to thank all of you who have been supporting our One Sweet Challenge. This has been a fun run and we hate to see it end. We will have the second inspiration part, but it will end on November 25, not the usual end of the month.

Now it’s time for our October winner…and the winner is

Congratulations Heather! Please contact me at with your one digital image as your prize.

November’s OSC theme is “a Thank You project, or a Thanksgiving themed project.” Take a few minutes and check out the OSC designers’ showcase. I know that they would love a visit to their blogs also.

Annie has created a lovely “Thank You” card
with ching-chou kuik’s Poinsettia Fairy.

Vannessa has created a step card
with Bow Tie in My Hair by Conie Fong.

 Bonnie’s “Thankful” mixed-media piece has
used The Gold Fairy by Ronne P. Barton.

Did you know…?

In our Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook group we have a progressive challenge every two weeks. First, we have a call for projects using any Sweet Pea Stamps image that is available in the store. That theme is “anything goes.” Then those entries will receive a digital image FREE of charge, chosen by our leader and SPS store owner Lynette, for Part Two of the progressive challenge. With that FREE digital image you are asked to make a project and enter it in Part Two. will pick the winner of Part Two. That winner will receive another digital image of the winner’s choice from the SPS store. Even if you don’t enter our progressive challenge, we hope you will stop by for inspiration and share your Sweet Pea Stamps art.

The Sweet Pea Stamps Designers blog showcases Sweet Pea goodness every day. Need a little pick me up for your creative mojo, or sometimes to view a video, stop by, like I said, “every day.” You can also find out the challenge blogs that Sweet Pea Stamps is sponsoring.
