And the winners are...

First off, I'd like to say thanks to everybody that participated. I finally got a chance to see what people have been doing with the rubber stamps I carry. Up until now no one's ever sent me any artwork other than the occasional stamped envelope contaning an order, (not that I'm complaining about that, I love orders & mail art is icing on the cake) So, Thank you all very much! Now without any further ado, (& providing my internet conection continues to work) here are the prize winners,

Lynne T. takes first place with her colorful Seaside Excursion Tag

Jen W. takes 2nd place with her altered pin, showing that stamps can be used on much more than just paper.

Alice B. takes 3 place with her pretty tag of Imperial Alice.

I had a hard time deciding 3 place so I'm giving an Honorble Mention to Sherry S. for her collage using the Alice in Wonderland images.

The rest of the entries follow, click on the images to see them better as some of them have details that get lost from a distance.

The tag on the left is Lynne T.'s 2nd entry & the 2 cards on the right are from Linn P.

The altered postcard on the left is from Larry R. & the 2 on the right are from Pamela B.

The top card is from Roberta S. & the one right above is from Molly V.

I have to say I think everyone had very clever compositions. I'll be posting them all on my website in the gallery section, though it might take me a little while to do that. In the mean time, I'll be contacting everyone separately to hand out prizes & coupons. Thanks again everybody!
