A Pretty Bouquet for YOU!!!...and WINNERS!!!



A very happy Monday to everyone and best wishes for a wonderful week! Gosh this weekend turned into a crazy one in these mountains. It has turned so COLD and, as if that was not enough, it was so windy that I lost electricity in my house from Saturday evening until Sunday evening...and my house, even with a gas fireplace, was down to 54 Degrees F (12 degrees C)!!! Thank heavens for the cottage house which didn't lose power!!! And when I finally did get to come back home, I had no heat and had to call the heating repairman...whew...at least he came and reset the furnace...so all is well again!!!

My card today uses a real little cutie from the upcoming collection at LOTV which will be on sale on February 20...so mark your calendar and put aside some pennies!!! They are all so delightful!!!! This image is called PRETTY BOUQUET and was so much fun to play with!! She was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics, adding a bit of Prisma Glitter to the butterflies. The base and all double matting is Bazzill, the DP is from the new MME Miss Caroline's Dilly Dally paper pad from Susanas Custom Art & Card Design, and all panels were machine stitched. For the vertical I used SU grosgrain ribbon tied into a newfangled (to me) bow made with Brilliant Bowmaker template I was able to buy at CHA...kinda different, isn't it? I topped it with a simple button. The floral treatment is all from Wild Orchid Crafts: 1 1/2" Trellis Rose, Daffodils, and Sweetheart Blossoms, accented with a couple of Heart Shaped Pins. Finally I added a few Self-Adhesive Pearls to soften the corners.



The inside is VERY simple because I wanted all of the paper to show...love those checks!!! the jotting panel is just a kraft envelope with a tag, resting on a GROW bingo card.

WINNER...WINNER!!!! I have a couple of winners to announce! Thank you all so much for dropping by and for participating in the SWEET STUFF opportunities! It is always so much fun to see my SWEET STUFF go all over the world!! So here we go....letting Mr Random.org made all of the decisions!!

I've read somewhere that only non-Blogger blogs like Wordpess will be affected. So, it's gonna be okay I guess. :)

Congratulations to the winners and great job on that beautiful card, Jacque!

Hi Jacque~

I am so sorry about that terrible weather you had to get through. This card certainly says "Sunshine" to me! I love the warm colors. Those flowers with the little heart stick pins are adorable. That bow reminds me of a flower...the stem and the bloom, or perhaps a pinwheel...which goes great with a child image! Speaking of the image...you have really done an exceptional job coloring her, Jacque! I love her cardigan and her socks and shoes are great. The skirt is colored so nicely, and I love her hairstyle! The dp you have used throughout this card is great, I wouldn't want to cover it all up either. And, I like the tag in the envelope for the inside of the card. The recipient can still pass the card around, while the personal message is kept personal. The more I think about it, the more I like that idea. I REALLY love this image!

Thanks so much for sharing it with us, Jacque. Hope you are keeping warm now!

He IS Able!
