A quick one... and a WINNER!

Hi all and Happy Saturday! As promimsed, I have a winner from my earlier in the week drawing for the new Cardmaps Issue -- featuring 50 sketches backed up with more than 80 beautiful creations! So... here's a peek at the winner!
So, I went to my trusty number generator -- -- and here's a peek....
 The number was 42 which means the winner was..........
Cin, all you need to do is email me at with your snail mail addy and I'll get your magazine right in the mail to you!

Now... for the quickie! This is a 10-minute creation that I think was fun! All you need is some fun decorative paper, some stitching, some pretty paper butterflies, some bright cotton ribbon, a color coordinating button and... some fun dies!

I used one of sentiments from the Butterflies and Blossoms set. While my Spellbinders Classic Circle die was still on, I did sponge on some Sugared Pink Distress Ink. I matted it on a Spellbinders Blossom die that I had embossed and sanded to reveal the paper's white core. I cut both with my new Grand Calibur machine! I will say all of these items were available in Flourishes Brioche kit  -- but -- sadly that kit sold out in 48 hours! I hear a new kit is coming Monday... so stay tuned! ;-)  Flourishes does have THESE and THESE cute butterflies!!! So, you can see how with some great paper, great ribbon and some fun butterflies, you can have an easy peasy, lemon squeezy creation!

Hope you are all enjoying the weekend! I'll be back Monday with some fun I whipped up over the weekend! ;-)

Congrats, Cin! What an asset maps mag will be at the scrap table and while traveling musing over fresh ideas.
Julie, the ten minute card has such energy laden colors. Spring must be blooming through the snow, mud, frost, fog, and raindrops. What a transition from winter to sprint 2011!
Keep Looking UP!
