Before I move on, I'd like to say "Welcome" to some new followers!!! Thank you so much for becoming a part of my family, happy to have you, and I do hope we'll become steadfast friends!!!
During my visits I could see everyone had a wonderful Halloween Sunday, and weekend, and I'm so glad. The hubby and I had a wonderful time also, but I'm glad it's over; I ate waaaay toooo many sweets and I was exhausted by the time it was all over!!! But what fun!!!
As I've said so many times before I'm not the best cardmaker and I'm so slow, so I've been doing a great number of Christmas cards -- trying to play catch up -- and which is why I've been posting so many Christmas cards. I know you're probably tired of them, but please bare with me. I promise I'm getting ready to start on some Thanksgiving projects soon!
Here's the card I'm sharing today:
I don't know the name of the paper, I just picked up a few sheets at Michaels. For the flower, I used 3 circles cut from the scrap leftover from the sheet of paper. The lacy top and bottom borders is cut from one of the Martha Steward punch around the page/corner sets, and I highlighted the lacy edges with chalk ink to bring it out more. I cut out a couple of extra bells from the paper and pop-dotted them onto the matching bells. Because this was my first time attempting to punch around the corners of a square, I started small and used my "test" punch on the inside of the card:
This is definitely going to be a learning experience for me because I didn't find it that easy and I still don't know exactly what I did to get it to look this decent. LOL!!!
Before, I leave I want to give you the two (2) details on winning the candy: you MUST be a follower and you must leave me a comment on this post!!! That's it!!! Now, there's also a SURPRISE attached to this blog candy!!! I will be giving away, along with the candy, a mystery gift! This will be announced once the winner has been determined. The blog candy award itself is the Paper Doll Dress Up cart:
- Note: This is a new cart, however, it did come as part of a set; the other cart was part of another blog candy award. Therefore, the box is not sealed but, again, it is a brand new cart.
The drawing will be Monday, November 8, anytime after 12 noon CT. The winner will be determined by Random Generator.
I love surprising and doing these little things to you!!! I'm soooooo bad!!! But, I think you'll love what I have in store for you!
I'll be seeing you!!!
