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.........

CARISSA from Ontario Canada!!!

Carissa, please contact me before Sunday, January 2 at midnight EST so that we can get your prizes to you. If I have not heard by then, I will select another winner!

HAPPY NEW YEAR SWEET STUFF...and now for some SWEET STUFF for my FOLLOWERS who have been with me through thick and thin and through everything that I experienced over the past made it all so much easier!!!! You all know that my very favorite part of blogging is SWEET STUFF and sharing with people all over the world!!! I have gathered a bit of SWEET STUFF that I will be presenting to my FOLLOWERS over the next couple of weeks to thank you all for your support and kindness. I hope you all will enjoy what I have put together for you!!! In order to be eligible for any of the FOLLOWERS' prizes I am asking that you:

1.Be a FOLLOWER or become a FOLLOWER

Hi Jaque!
Thank you so much for another chance to win one of your great candys!

Grenouille Greetings said...

Well Jacque, I have scrolled through the 200 or so comments and I can't see one from me so I don't think I have entered your candy already but I can't see the third column of names on your froggy list so I do apologise if I am entering twice. Your candy looks delicious in the extreme but I promise I am not deliberately entering more than once if, I already entered and can't find my name. Big Hugz to you and all good wishes for a lovely New Year! Warmest wishes, Lesley

Fernanda Piloto Fioravante said...

Hi love your blog, I'm from Brazil, wanted to participate!
I love scrapbooking, too bad that here in Brazil everything is very expensive, more expensive even the punches ... would be very happy if I won!
My dream is to work with a comment, I think magnifico .. I wanted to learn more ... the albums .. mini albums for me is all fascinating ... but like I said everything here is very expensive! I really wanted a chance to win a lottery that level of quality ....

Anita said...

Such a beautiful card. With all those layers of paper I hope you don't have to mail it ... wow, that could be very expensive lol! Thanks for the chance to win some candy.
