Barb:  please send me your e-mail at jlazarski1 at yahoo.com (no spaces and the 'at' = @, just trying to avoid any extra spam!) and I will forward the gift certificate code.  Be sure to put 'blog candy winner' in the subject line so I can find your note.

If Barb does not contact me by next Sunday, the 25th at 8pm EST I will draw for a back-up winner.

The From the Heart Sketch Challenge is up and running HERE; I, however, spent too much time up and running so my sketch challenge card will be posted on Wednesday!
