Hello, everyone!!!  Hope all's well!

Are we ready for the RAK winner?!!!  It's been a long wait and I appreciate your patience during my internet issues.  The number selected by Random.org is:
Number 19!!!  This number corresponds with Kate on the May 23 post.  Congratulations KATE, you are the winner!!!  Please email me your full name and address to audreyfrel@sbcglobal.net soI can get your candy in the mail to you.

Now..., remember I said yesterday I'd share several projects I completed while my internet was on down time and not allowing me access to my blog?  Well, I'm going to do that right now.

A friend asked me to do a newly wed present of a kitchen gift for her to give to a new bride she works with, so I came up with this idea using some plain kitchen towels and mitts.  I embellished them with the couple's name, added a rolling pin magnet and a country-style jar candle (which I did a computer generated label for).  I called it the "Country Kitchen Easy Chair":

Next are two (2)  "all occassion" cards I made on my Imagine.  For this one I used Lori's Garden cartridge:

the inside of the card

For this card I used the Damask Decor cartridge:

And the last project I want to share is a pad and pen set I put together with some leftovers (sorry the picture is lousy):

I wrapped the pen in black polyester ribbon that was left over from the bow on the card, and added Stickles to the top and bottom around the base. The embellishment on the front of the card was a leftover also and I don't remember what cart I used when I cut it.

I hope you like my projects!

As a note, I'm currently putting together another small RAK to giveaway soon, so keep checking back for the announcement!

Last but, hopefully not least, I hope you'll all join me for my DT project that I'm preparing for Sheila's blog tomorrow.  Hint:  If you know me and what I love, you might have a clue as to what it's going to be!!! 

I'll be back!
