  1. Thanks SO much ladies for choosing my white pumpkin as the Lead! I too was quite happy with how it came out - when I did the sponging I was afraid I was going to wreck it - but the ink sponged onto the Bazzill paper just the way I was trying to do it!! (that doesn't always happen!

    Congrats to the Show Stoppers as well - so many wonderful ideas for blue and white pumpkins!!

  2. So excited to be in this talented group of show stoppers! Congrats ladies! Looking forward to the next challenge!
