Hello Gorgeous at Wild Orchid Challenge and WINNER!!

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you had a marvelous weekend and are ready for a great week! Since I am late posting today I have some great news to share!!! I am free as a bird from the doctor for 6 whole months!!! The mammo looked great and the only problem is the tumor marker is still at 10+ and they want it at I only have to drop in for blood tests every now and then!!! Yipppppeeeeeee!!!

Today is the brand new challenge over at Wild Orchid Challenge which is BEARY SPECIAL this fortnight so you must use a bear and at least one WOC product on your card or project. We hope you will come over and join in with us and see the BEARY SPECIAL cards made by the WOC DT.

For my card I used the cutest little bear from LOTV called Hello Gorgeous. She was stamped on XPress It Blending Card, colored with Copics, and cut out with a Nestie before adding some sweet pink lace around the oval. The lace was part of my birthday gift from the sweet and talented Suzan! Thank you so much, Sweetie!! On the mirror I added a thick coat of Glossy Accents and some Flower Soft for the carpet. The base of the card is Bazzill and the matting is PTI and Bazzill. The sweet DP is from the Country Drive Collection by Echo Park and all background layers are machine stitched. I hope the geometric paper looks like wallpaper behind the image layer because I hung three little girlie boudoir charms from tiny pink satin bows--a tiny hand mirror, perfume bottle, and comb. The floral treatment is all by Wild Orchid Crafts: 20mm Open Rose, 15mm Open Roses, 8mm Semi-Open Roses, and Aster Daisies. To complete the front I used WOC Self-Adhesive Pearls.

The inside is very simple with the sentiment computer generated. I added a larger hand mirror to the first panel with another satin bow.

Thank you all so very much for all of the wonderful birthday wishes and for such sweet and kind comments!!! I let Mr Random.Org select the winner of this Deluxe Scor-Pal Set and that winner is.....111. vicky mcclean ! Congratulations, Vicky!! It looks like this one will be on its way to the UK!!! Please contact me before Wednesday, August 3 at midnight EST so that I can get your SWEET STUFF out to you right away! In your email, please send me your mailing address and your preference of centimeters or inches!

AND, I just had to show all of you a magnificent surprise I received for my birthday from my wonderful friend, Gunilla!!!! She had these Swedish clogs handmade and hand painted for me and they fit like a glove!!! They are even signed by the artist who made them and painted them and she even put my name on them!!!! Aren't they the cutest things ever?!?!?! I just love them! Thank you so very much, Sweetie!!!!

Thank you all so much for coming by and I hope to see you again real soon!!! Have a splendid week...and until the next time I send great big hugs!!!!
