Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 41 - Encouragement and Guest DT

It's almost Thanksgiving, and while I never have trouble finding things to be thankful for, this year I am especially thankful for the friends, readers, and inspiration we have gained this past year on our challenge blog. It's about this time last year I took over the reigns of coordinating, and it's been a fun, challenging, but above all, encouraging learning experience. Thank YOU so much for making this a creative place to be, for telling your friends about our challenges, and of course, for your friendship!! Thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Peachy Keen Stamps is celebrating this Thanksgiving as we did last year, with a 4-day Sale beginning Thursday and going through Sunday! THIS weekend only! You won't want to miss it!

You all have been waiting SO patiently to find out who won our last challenge. I am here to tell you this was HARD! Honestly, there were so many BEAUTIFUL & creative entries, it was hard to pick a winner since everyone had their own unique twist on it. However, we managed to narrow it down to FIVE incredible entries to be our TOP 5 this week:

33. Kathrin aka Kruemel!

Our top remaining 4 are:
40. Iris
22. Raechel
17. Amanda B
15. Ellen M361

Congratulations, ladies!
Please email me for your TOP 5 badge, and Kathrin, for your prize! :)

And here's something else you'll be glad you didn't miss - we have someone special joining us today for our Guest Design spot! If you've been checking out our Facebook page or reading our blog the past couple of weeks, you know you could have a chance to be one of our Guest DT's too!!
