Card Recognition

Sunday, May 8, 2011

You are an inspiration, plus winners!



I love that I've made all sorts of cards this week, but hadn't actually made one for my mom for Mother's Day, oops.  I found this sheet of SRM stickers at Ben Franklin and thought that I should make some cards for my girlfriend's Avon Breast Cancer Walk, but I haven't actually made them yet...  so when looking for the right sentiment for my mom I thought this one was perfect.  I've also used this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and the Play Date Cafe colors.  I've used some faux stitching to try to cover the clear vellum double sided tape for Yvonne's "Do More with Less" challenge.  Tiffany Doodles and ABC Design Blog are celebrating flowers this month, and I think the WMS Big Blooms set is great, especially colored in with water colors.

Right, now more importantly... blog candy winners!!!  Thank you for all the comments over the last week, such fun to see such fabulous blog love.  Because I've been lucky to win a number of things in the past, I wanted to have as many winners as possible.  So, with the help of Random.org here we go.
