The Mysterious Posting!!!

 
This is the card that I made for MYSTERIOUS Monday when my posting was up for about 2 hours and then disappeared!!! How strange is that???? The card was made for the Mini Hop for the New Release at Whimsy Stamps and for the Daisy Daisy theme at the latest Wild Orchid Challenge. The darling image is the NEW Bunny Bunting from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection illustrated by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps.

And here is the SWEET STUFF I am offering for some lucky commenter.
 
She will be travelling with some more goodies. Since everyone did not have a chance to participate on Monday, this SWEET STUFF will be available until Saturday, March 2 at 8 AM EST. If you have already commented, your comment is already included below...However if you have not thrown your name in, please feel free to do so on this posting. You can see that some comments were recorded on Monday before the posting disappeared.... Good Luck!!
 
Thanks for coming by today and I hope to see you again real soon...BIG HUGS!!

WINNER...WINNER...WINNER!!!

A very happy Wednesday to everyone!!! I hope you are having a delightful week! This week for me has been a zoo. My heating system went out on Friday but luckily we had nice weather. I took my Auntie on a wee trip for her 75th birthday on Sunday and Monday...When I got back home I found that, although my card posted as scheduled on Monday at noon, it was only up for about 2 hours when Blogger decided to eat it up!!! On Monday evening my heating system was fixed but just in time...because on Tuesday we had an ice storm which resulted in lots of loss of electricity across the town. So I am keeping my fingers crossed that the end of the week is MUCH better!!! haha But let's get down to business here with some winners!!!
 
The winner of Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF is.....
 
119. Carla Suto
 
So it looks like this prize is going to Birmingham, AL!!!!!
 
 
The winner of Shelley is.....

Jacque - that's ME!!!



 
For my card today I made a criss-cross card using the NEW and absolutely darling couple Love Me Do by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps which was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding some prisma glitter to the bride and tiny red flowers. The base and matting is Bazzill and the DP is from an OLD MM Black and White paper pad. The Picket Fence Die was used for the entrance to the little scene. And I used mixed FlowerSoft colors for the arbor and for the swags on the fence, adding tiny red bows to the fence. The Love metalpiece is by Recollections, as is the border pearl trim.

 
This shows the insert card which uses the lovely Double Scalloped Square Doily Die, simply adding a red organza double bow.
