Make A Wish and a Winner

Hi everyone!  I hope the past week has been a good one for all.  I got to spend some time on Friday to make some more cards.  Sometimes, I only have enough creative juices for one card but was able to make several in a short period of time.  That makes me happy to get lost in making things to hopefully brighten someone's day.  

The card I made today uses MME Lost & Found 6x6 paper and layered chipboard.  I cut a piece of floral paper to the size I wanted.  Then, I spritzed a doily with Tattered Angels Sand Glimmer Mist and put it under a pink gingham pennant.  I wrapped some hemp around the card twice and then glued it to a Recollections premade card.  The pretty chipboard piece was then placed on top of the pennant, tied the hemp in a double bow, stamped a PTI sentiment to a tag and glued it and a crocheted flower to the bow.  Last but not least, I inked the edges of the card with Jumbo Java Versa Magic ink.

 I want to thank all of you who left me such sweet messages on the first anniversary of this blog.  I do appreciate each and every one of you and hope you will continue to stop by here to visit and leave a message.  And now for the winner of my first blogversary and giveaway...Audrey Pettit!   Congratulations, Audrey!  Send me an e-mail and I will get your gift mailed to you.

And again, thank you to all the sweet friends I have made since starting this blog.  I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
