Aunt Pat's Birthday has flown by. Sorry I'm a little late in picking a winner for the blog candy! We're back from Seattle and had an awesome time, but it's always nice to be home!! I had a lot of fun reading what you've been up to with your stamping. Thank you so much for all the comments you left...I really do enjoy hearing from you!! I wish I could pick 122 winners, but only chose one...and that winner is (drum roll please......) ~

I have been working on my coloring skills - whether it is watercoloring or colored pencils. Thanks for the sweet treats - it's a great prize!

Congratulations Cassie! If you could please email me your mailing address (, I'll get those goodies mailed off to you = ) !!! I've been working on my coloring skills too...making myself try new techniques, which is both fun & challenging! I hope to break out my new watercolor crayons this week and give 'em a little try.

Thanks also to everyone who suggested that I stop by the Impress shop while in Seattle... GREAT were right, it was well worth the stop : ) ! I bought a couple of fun little items and absolutely loved looking through the shop. Also have a few items to show you from the Amuse shop..I got LOTS of ribbon there, Oh my, they have some gorgeous ribbon, and since I'm a bit of a ribbon addict, it was completely irresistable! Also picked up a new Elzybells stamp = ). More on Seattle & shopping later this week!

I did manage to make one card today, after rummaging through boxes and pulling out a few stamping supplies. Most of my stamp room/supplies are boxed up because our contractor was doing some work while we were in Seattle ... but they finished up earlier today & I'll be spending the evening unpacking. It's been a little frustrating, but really, it's a great excuse to start fresh and get good and organized! Who knows...I just might find more blog candy while I'm putting everything away!!

Today's card is for my Aunt Pat...her birthday is this week! I used SCS Sketch from last week, SC169...Click HERE for all the details on the sketch. It's an awesome layout from one of Leslie Miller's cards!!
It was a little tricky because the main panel couldn't be any wider than 1.5 inches, but I did manage to stay within the challenge guidelines. It wasn't easy...hmmm...maybe that's why they call it a challenge??

Alrighty then, I better get started with my unpacking and organizing. The quicker I get done, the quicker I can start stamping again.....Thanks for stopping by = )

Lucky Aunty Pat! This is fantastic!

I am sorry but those three dots in the corner just add so much. Why don't I think to do that more often. Its amazing how just a little bit more completes the look. Thanks for sharing what a beautiful card. Cynthia

Nancy, your Aunt Pat is going to love her sweet card :-) I had to go out of the box to make my 1 1/2" panel work! Loved Leslie's layout and you did it proud! Do you mind if I share the SCS link to my SC card?
Hope not because........
Here is my card:
