I had a feeling you guys were going to love this one :)  I wish I had a gift certificate for everyone, but – as always – we’ve got to narrow it down…so, the lucky random winner of the Smock shopping spree is: Heather Moss (commenter # 197), who said “If I won, I would get those adorable Horsey cards and turn them into birth announcements for my brother and sister-in-law’s new baby who will be born in October. Awesome stuff — saved to Delicious!” Congrats, Heather!

    i know it’s cheesy ’cause it’s the first card on there, but i love that cheers card. it’s a simple classic design, but the word and colors give it that little extra som’n. perfect for a “i’m-23-kind-of-grown-up-but-shh-don’t-remind-me” kind of girl.

    (that’s me, by the way.)
