First up, the winner of last week's giveaway of PTI's Year of Flowers: Daffodil. I actually figured out how to copy the results from Random.org this time:
That makes the winner #8: Nancy L!! Congrats, Nancy! Be sure to send me an email at email@example.com with your address, and I will pop your stamp set in the mail.
In case anyone had forgotten or is just tuning in, the occasion for the last two giveaways was my upcoming blogaversary, and today is the day! It's hard to believe it has only been a year since I started blogging, as I feel like I've known many of you forever. I am so incredibly grateful for each and every one of YOU, my readers and followers. I'm looking forward to another year here on the blog, and where that might take me. I hope you'll stick around, too!
So, dear readers, this card is for you. It's another reject from the Paper Crafts Go-to Sketches call, but I rather like how it turned out, and the sentiment is perfect for my feeling of gratitude today.
It was hard to photograph, but the right side of the card base is debossed with the Polka Dots impression plate, with a scored line leaving a border down the left side for the buttons. You can see it a little better below:
All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless noted
Cardstock: Raspberry Fizz
Stamps: Signature Series: Butterfly
Ink: Frost White (Clearsnap)
Tools: Polka Dots impression plate, Scoring Board (Martha Stewart), hole punch (Fiskars), Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)
Accessories: buttons, baker's twine (The Twinery), embossing powder (Stampendous)
Alright, if you're still with me, I have one more giveaway today to wrap up my blogaversary celebration, and I think you're going to love it! One of my absolute favorite new stamp sets from one of my favorite companies is Flora & Fauna 1 from WPlus9. You've seen me use it HERE, HERE, and HERE. I also made THIS gorgeous card set for my Etsy shop.
The illustrations are just beautiful, and I can't wait to see what other flora and fauna Dawn has planned for future sets in this series.
For a chance to win this set, leave me a comment on this post telling me what is your favorite flower. Mine's the daisy, by the way. *smile*
This giveaway is open to Followers of my blog, to thank you for supporting me over the last year, and I will be happy to ship internationally.
Thanks again, my friends! Have a great day!
