Spotted Canary Challenge - Edgy Project - Wedding Favor

I stumbled upon a site that is new to me... called -- part of EK Success.
They are having a contest for $100 worth of supplies. All you crafty friends with edge punches should check it out. Here is my submission.

Using 3"x6" craft cardstock I scored and folded to make a treat "matchbook" cover -- great for weddings as an easy and affordable party favor. To make the perfect corner punch curve you have to use a 3.25"x6" piece of stock. The Merci stamp is from The Paper Source. The ribbon is Martha Stewart craft seam binding in Dove White. Chestnut Roan Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink. I think the punch set is Scallop Three Dot - Punch Around the Page by Martha Stewart, I got mine at Michaels last fall/winter and think it is a very classy look.

On a totally different note -- have any of you been getting spam on your blog? I have my blog set to approve comments and I am glad I do. This is a screenshot of a post that came in today, the site posts song lyrics with links that lead to sites I would not want to be associated with -- "drug" companies and the like. Just an FYI -- I really appreciate comments and questions, and had recently been thinking of taking the approve feature off -- but now I think I may have to leave it on just to keep everyone a bit safer. How do you handle the spam?
