Back To Normal......PLEASE!

What a week last week was!  I have to admit, I had all the posts from last week done and ready to go up over a week ago :)  I knew last week would be crazy and I was right.  I'm hoping that things will get back to normal this week, though with Easter only a few days away I'm not sure that will happen.  I have one kid (Megan), who keeps walking around with the Easter basket on her head and the other kid asks everyday when it's time to dye the eggs!  But hopefully I'll be at least home this week so I can at the very least get some work done around here :)  Even though my posts were prescheduled I still read every comment that was left for all 5 days!  You are all so nice and I loved reading every single one of your comments.  We'll get to the winners in just a second.  I want to briefly show you some cute cards!  Last week was our demo meeting and I showed how to make these cute little guys in my 3 minute demo. 

As cute as they are I really can't take the credit for them.  I saw them on Dawn Griffith's blog.  She has so many super cute things on her blog.  Here's the video for the bears, and here's the video for the bunny.  I made my bunny into a card, on Dawn's blog she used it for a candy bar wrapper.  Both super cute and so fun!!!!
So are you excited to see who won?!!?  I know I am!!!!  If your name is a winner please email me your address and I'll get your card or other goodies in the mail to you.  If someone doesn't claim their prize by Thursday I'll draw another name and post it Friday.  The drawings were done by Logan, I put all the numbers of that days post, in order of when they were recieved in a bowl and Logan drew a number.  And the winners are.....

Winner of Monday's Owl Card: Melinda, who said:
"What a cute card. I love your tree with the adorable owl - that might need to on my gotta have list :) I am so happy for you to be on 1000!!! Fun. Thanks for the week of non-fatting candy :)"

Winner of Tuesday's Flower Card: No name was left but her blog is A French Accent, who said:
"Beautiful, I really love the mix of colors. TFS!"

Winner of Wednesday's Blue Pig Card: Meryn, who said:
"Logan has good taste, just like his mama! This is such an adorable card! Love the simplicity of it! My favorite DSP of all time so far is Spice Cake (from last fall's mini). If I had to pick a current favorite DSP, it would be any of the DSP packs that match the color collections! I love their versatility and that they can be made to look kid friendly, feminine, or masculine depending on how you use them!

Winner of Thursday's Tree Card: Nicole, who said:
"Ruth, the card is a great masculine card. I struggle too with finding masculine card themes. Dry embossing is my preference over heat-embossing, no mess. - Nicole"
Finally winner of Friday's Blog Candy (the bag, the stamp set, pearls, ribbon, and brads): CHERYL!!!!! Who said:
"Congrats on your 1000 post. Your blog is the best!!

Thanks again so much and a big congratulations to the winners!!!!!!  Remember to email me to claim your prize!!!
