So, today I want to share a card I made using the Time for You stamp set from the Occasions Mini. I was really excited about this set, but once I got it, I was kind of stumped on how to use it!! So, I decided to pair the image with my Lots of Thoughts SAB stamp set and went to work! The base of the card is Bashful Blue card stock. The next layer is So Saffron card stock which I stamped in the same color ink using my Jumbo Stampin' Wheel Basics Outline - I just love the flowers on this wheel!! The two smaller squares are made using the Summer Picnic Designer Series paper also from the Occasions Mini. If you like these items and haven't ordered them yet, hurry because they are only good until the end of May!! The image is stamped on Whisper White card stock in black stazon and colored in using my Stampin' Write Markers, then adhered to Old Olive card stock. I sponged the edges of these two pieces with Old Olive Classic Stampin' Ink. I used my Photo Corners Punch with Old Olive and Bashful Blue card stock, layered them, added a So Saffron brad, and added some Ruby Red dots using my Stampin' Write marker. The small strip of dp in the top right corner is punched out of Cutie Pie Designer Series Paper using my Word Window Punch. I added a vintage silver brad to this. All the main pieces of card stock were punched using my Ticket Corner Punch with the exception of the sentiment which is stamped in Ruby Red Classic Stampin' Ink on Bashful Blue card stock, punched out using my 1 1/4 inch Square Punch, and popped up on dimensionals. I added a small piece of So Saffron Grosgrain ribbon to this as well. Lastly, I added some accent color to the So Saffron layer with my white gel pen and I was done!! I made 20 of these for a swap I am in so needless to say by the last one, I was ready to be finished with this card - LOL! I love swaps but I don't like the repetitiveness of them - I think we should just make all different cards that have a similar theme and color scheme....hmmmm....what do you all think?? Anyway, thanks again for playing along with my blog candy, and have a fabulous Saturday!!!!

AND THE WINNER IS....
oh, not yet - LOL! This was so much fun seeing how everyone tried to remember to do the two posts each day!! I have to say out of everyone who posted, only nine people did the two posts each day so odds were good for them!! I am sorry to those of you who wrote and said you did not like this, but I wanted to try something different AND I wanted to give those who visit everyday a fair chance against those who just blog candy search. And, hey, it's my blog, right?? *wink* It seemed like most of you had a blast doing this and I am glad! So, without further ado, here is the winner drawn by my husband from little pieces of paper in a big bowl - hey, random.org would not have worked for this one, LOL! Drum roll please......the winner is.......Denise !!!! Whoohoo girl, congratulations !!! Denise is a regular poster on my blog, has a fabulous blog of her own, is very talented, and super sweet!! Send me your snail mail addy and I will get your goodies right out to you!! Thanks again to everyone who played, I enjoyed it too :-) I know some of you wanted to know how I kept track - I set up a spreadsheet the first day and added the names and a check mark for each day for each post....anal, huh?!! It's the military officer coming out in me, LOL! So, by last night, it was easy to see who qualified for the drawing!
