Blog Candy Winner and 50's card

First of all can I just say 199 comments!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!
The random generator drew 196!
A very SIMPLE tool, my stapler. It is the best and it is amazing how creative you can be with it. Colours frames, texture and of course attaching stuff. I would also LOVE to get a long armed one. You can also colour plain silver staples with the new multi-pack of jiffy markers or with stayz on and the colours are endless.
Congrats on the 50000. I remember your 1st post
Robin, please contact me with your snail mail so that I can get your goodies out on Monday!

Have you ever felt like you were born during the wrong time? I just LOVE the 50s. When I saw the Retro 50's stamp set from Pink Cat Studio I was so excited. I never realized how much I loved the 50s until we received the Back to the Future trilogy some years back. I have watched those shows so many times. My favourite part is in episode one/two when Marty goes back to the 50s and attends the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance.
Don't get me wrong, I do love the time I live in, hey I don't think I would make it without all these great new scrapbooking and stamping gadgets, but I have to say I adore this stamp set and it really makes me feel like I "missed" the past.
I created a card, based on a layout Beate shared this past week from Sketch This using my swell new set!
