And we have a winner!!!

Hi All!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend. We had beautiful weather here up until yesterday. So, it got cold and blustery just in time for the weekend. How unfair is that?

It's Sunday which means it's time to pick a winner for the Green Grass Stamps giveaway. And the winner is........

"What a nice card, Julie. There are a lot of Thank You sets out there, but you are right... that one is awesome!"

So, Cindy, if you click on my profile, my email address is there. Just shoot me an email with your address and I will get that fun set off to you!

I did want to post one more creation I did with this set. I want to start by saying this card is NOT my typical card. In fact, I don't think I've ever created a card this loud - BUT- the paper was perfect for the set and I had the right embellishments and so it just kind of clicked. You just might need sunglasses to look at it!

I started by stacking all the thank yous in the set on a long acrylic block - I didn't care if they were straight. In fact, I wanted a few to be a bit crooked. Let's face it, this card is all about the chaos!! I stamped the thank yous a few times down a 2" strip of paper. The scallop edge was created thanks to the stamp in this set. The rest is just patterned paper, a loopy brad with gingham strung through and a super big rhinestone on each brad. That's it!

Here's a close up of the bling! You know I gotta have the bling!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Love the card; it's loud but an awesome card. Just saw where you hubby spent some time in Billings in his youth; his older brother and his family live in Seeley Lake...always a small world. :)
