Followers' SWEET STUFF, Friday Sketchers #135 and WINNER!!!
Happy Friday and almost Happy New Year to each of you!! I hope that you have all had a marvelous holiday and are looking forward to an even better New Year. Yesterday was my first day out of the house since before Christmas because of that wonderful WHITE STUFF!!! ARGH!!!!!!! I won't tell you what I think about snow at this point!!! SMILES
This week at Friday Sketchers #135 we are being hosted by Inge of the Netherlands who has provided us with a very challenging sketch for me. Since I usually double mat and stitch my panels I ended up with 15 layers of papers when I count the base!!! But thanks so much, Inge, for the fun!!! I hope you will decide to join with us this week where there is a very nice prize provided by 7 Kids College Fund.
For my card I used Bazzill for the base, PTI and Bazzill for the matting, and all of the DP is a Mina Vanner Rosa-Marina 3 Creation of Maja Designs which was a gift from the most talented Gunilla of Sweden along with the hÄnglar & stÄnglar image that I used! Thank you so much, Gunilla! I love it ALL!!!! Most of the panels were machine stitched. The solid mauve panel was crimped. The image was colored with Copics, Star Dust Stickles outline the wings, and the shabby white cornerpieces are by Melissa Frances. The Cherry Blossom Stems, Heart-Shaped Pins, and Guipure Cream Lace are all available at Wild Orchid Crafts. Due to time constraints I didn't finish the inside this time because I wanted to get a surprise ready for my FOLLOWERS instead.
But first the WINNER of the SWEET STUFF from last Friday which was sponsored by Whimsy Stamps---thank you again, Denise!!! Congratulations to.........
