Whipper Snapper contest

I am so excited, and I have to share. As many of you know, I am a Whipper Snapper junkie. I love there images and I have such a great time coloring them. Well, a while back, my BFF Kerry told me about a contest Whipper snapper was holding. The theme was Holiday or winter. The Prize 1st was $100 Free product, 2nd $50.00 Free product and 3rd was $25.00 Free product, and then they will give you $10.00 for every card they keep for publication.
So, I thought "I may as well give it a try, I can always use FREE product". Well, I made 5 cards. The due date was Dec 15th, and on Friday the 12th, I was really busy and decided that I wouldn't bother mailing them in. I figured at the most I might get $20.00. Well, when I was talking to Kerry at 4:30 that evening, I told her that I wasn't going to bother sending in the cards, and that I really didn't have the time to get them together. Well, she said "are you kinding me!!!". She was right (per ususal), after all the time I spent making them, I should send them in. So, off to the post office I went, and I stood in line for 1/2 hour (no lie), and shipped them next day.
Well, are you ready????? Come to find out, my card won 2nd place. OMG...$50.00 FREE product, but when I continued to read the e-mail, they accepted all 5 cards....OMG....$90.00 FREE product. I still can't believe it.
I have posted my winning card here, but you can view the other winners here

So, if you love Whipper Snapper as much as I do, continue to check out there website for future contests, you never know until you try.

Thanks Kerry for always encouraging me with my creativity. You are a good friend. Luv ya!
