For example if you were entry #1 using, your entries for the drawing would be numbers 1 and 84. If the second card using a Sweet Pea image was the 10th card in our challenge the drawing numbers would be 10 and 85.  Double entries are simply added again to the end of the list in the order they were acquired.

Yep, you heard me, so be sure and get an entry in by the 15th!!  It will be announced when the 2nd round of  DT cards are shared.  That winner will be chosen at random and can still go to the Sweet Pea store and pick their prize.  The store will close on the 25th, just before Thanksgiving, so please get your prize immediately. 

The 2nd prize will be drawn at the end of the month and it will be a  rubber stamp from Sweet Pea stamps, on the 15th I will show what the rubber stamp is, it will get mailed to the prize winner (overseas participants can win!) Note, ALL cards will be eligible for the 2nd drawing, card number the end.  You can enter up to three times using non-Sweet Pea images or any number with Sweet Pea stamps.
