A CARD, A WINNER, AND SOME PICS!

Hey all! Well, as promised, I am back with a card AND I am announcing the blog candy winner! I also want to share some news from Convention so grab your coffee, this is a long one - LOL! First, the card! I made this for my very special friend Corinne (aka Roxy) who I finally got to hug at Convention!! She is just as sweet as can be, and beautiful to boot!! I am so very glad I got to spend some time with her at Convention, love ya girl! So, I made this card especially for her using our new Bella Rose Designer Series paper and the True Friend Stamp Set. I will leave you with the recipe.


Card Recipe:
Paper - Basic Black car stock, Regal Rose card stock, Old Olive card stock, Bella Rose Designer Series Paper
Ink - Rose Red Classic Stampin' Pad and Stampin' Write Marker, Old Olive Stampin' Write marker
Stamps - True Friend
Accessories - Mat stack and paper piercer, Ticket Corner Punch, Build-a-brad, Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, Black brads
And now, I am bettin' you would like to know who won the blog candy....well, I guess I should tell ya - LOL! Because of the way I did this, I had to give each days posting one entry for each person so I could not use Random.org BUT I did it the old-fashioned way, cut up the little pieces of paper, and had my son draw the name. So, the winner is.........Denise Lynn, Whoohoo!!!!! Send me your addy Denise and I will get your candy right on out to you! As for everyone who participated, thanks a million for sticking by me while I was away last week, you are all so wonderful!!! And, stay tuned, there will be more blog candy soon! And, now for some more Convention news: guess what we are getting? A BIG SHOT - WHOOHOO!!!! Yep, that's right, Stampin' Up! is teaming up with Sizzix to bring us the BIG SHOT with beautiful exclusive dies - can you believe it??!!! Just look at these fabulous pictures of some of the projects made by none other than Shelli Gardner herself! Arent' they just sooooo cute??!! There is a pizza, a cute reindeer ornament, a cute santa ornament, and a wonderful tag she made for her daughter's baby shower - all made with the exclusive dies that are labeled as Shelli's signature products - I am soooo excited!! These will be available to order for all of you on the 11th of August so if you are interested, please let me know!! I will have them in my hot little hands here shortly and will start to make some projects for all of you to see! Isn't this just the greatest news??!!!!
