Grand Blog Candy Winner!

I made this card for Wednesday's SCS Sketch second card for this challenge. I love this hostess set...Sidekick Sayings. I didn't like it at all when I first saw it back in July, but now...well, it's becoming one of my favorites. I really like the sentiments and the images that have a perfect little spot to add a splash of color or sparkle (or both!). I've used this three different ways in recent postings this month and each one has a completely different look. It seemed like the perfect card to post today as I'm wrapping up the end of my month long Grand Opening Celebration! First, let me say how GRATEFUL I am for everyone single person who stops by the blog and especially those who have taken the time to leave kind and encouraging comments! I started the blog on October 18th and in just a little over a month, my counter reads 14,700!! Now that's a reason to celebrate = ) ! If you ever wonder if it's worth it to leave a comment and if I read them all...the answer is YES!! And I appreciate every single word!

And now, it's time to draw a random winner from each of the weekly winners of the Grand Opening Weekly Challenges! Let's see, the weekly winners are: Nancy Riley, Chat, Regina Davis, Sue, Dawn Easton, Deb and Dawn Easton (again!).

And the GRAND PRIZE BLOG CANDY winner is (drum roll please)...........DAWN EASTON = ) !!!! Check out all her wonderful projects at her (TreasureOiler) SCS Gallery and her blog TreasureOilerDesignz

Congratulations Dawn and thanks again to the other girls who played along...It's been a lot of fun to see your projects!!! Dawn, I just need your address so I can mail your goodies off to you!

Tomorrow, I'll be giving away a $15 Stampin' Up Gift Certificate to one of my customers! I love giving stuff away!! During the month of November, for every $50 in merchandise they ordered, their name was put in a drawing. Tomorrow, one of those names will be drawn = ) !!!

Paper: Creative License Kit (hostess), Navy, Wasabi, Sky, Whisper White
