Thank You and a Winner!

Thanks soooo much to those who left comments on my blog. I read each and every one of them and I so appreciate your kind words. There was lots of requests for more 3 D stuff, more punch creations and more Halloween stuff. So you'll all be please to know that I'm working on all of that! There also was a question asking if I'm having a boy or girl. I'm having a girl. Now for the winner, I used to draw the winner and it's........

  • Hi Ruth, I would love to see more 3-D projects, but I love your cards too. I love doing those for gifts. I am always making things for gifts at Christmas, Mother's Day, etc.

Thanks Karen, and please email me your mailing address and I'll get your gifts out to you ASAP. Thanks again to everyone who commented!

For today's card I wanted to use more of my new mini catalog stuff. When I first saw the mini catalog I wasn't really drawn to the Paisley Prints stamp set and didn't even have it on my wishlist but after seeing so many wonderful things done with it from Convention how could I NOT get it!?? Isn't this card super pretty!? I love those greens together!! And I have a confession to make I NEVER use Garden Green, ever!!! Can't even think of the last time I used it! But with the Pear Pizazz I LOVE IT!! I'm defiantly ordering a bunch more Garden Green!!

I stamped the heart in Pear Pizazz and then used my Garden Green marker to highlight some of the stamp. Look at that sparkly Pear Pizazz brad too!!! They're in the mini catalog and they're so pretty!!! I used my big shot movers and shapers die to get the larger heart in the Garden Green. I just thought it should be layered.

I'm loving the ribbon on this card too!! I ran a line of sticky strip along the card and crumpled and ruffled and scrunched up my ribbon and stuck it to the sticky strip. I LOVE IT!!
Thanks again for the comments! I am working on a bunch of stuff. I have my Christmas Card stamp a stack that I need to start cutting for and a class next weekend but I'll still find time to post. I can't wait to show you what I've been working on! Tomorrow is Logan's 4th birthday so we'll be busy celebrating all weekend!

Perfect color combo. Is that a line of small hearts behind the ribbon? Totally cute.
