WINNER at Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF!!!!

 
Happy Day, everyone!!! I apologize for being late with the announcement of this week's winner BUT I have had a wonderful birthday (all 66 of them...lol) and I have lost several days this week. First I went away for several days with my little Auntie and since we returned there have been so many things happening related to my birthday...smiles!!!! Even tonight after Zumba, the owners of the gym and some of the Zumbinis are taking me out for dinner since I wasn't at the gym on my birthday!!! Yipppppeeeee!! What a fun bunch too!!! And tomorrow night we have a special 2 hour Black and White Zumba party...and on Sunday I am going with the group to South Carolina for a special Zumba party to raise money for Safe Harbor, an organization which provides safe emergency shelter, counseling, legal advocacy and teen dating violence prevention for victims of domestic violence. And those activities are just the beginning for a busy month ahead!!!!
 
But you can be sure that Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF will continue on! Thank you all so much for coming by and participating!!!

Wild Orchid Challenge and SWEET STUFF!!!!

Happy Monday to everyone and I wish for you the very best of all weeks!! More rain here but after all it's not snow so all is well and I am hoping for more sunshine this week! Probably my wish will be for much more sunshine and HEAT than we want!! hahahah
 
Today is the very first day of this fortnight's new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge where you know there is a marvelous prize from the Wild Orchid Crafts each time for some lucky participant so we hope you will come over and play along with us where the challenge this time is BLUE and/or PURPLE!!!
 
I decided to use navy/dark royal blue since these are colors I don't often use....and here is my card for this challenge....
 
 
For the base and all double matting I used Bazzill and the DP is all from the Authentique Genuine Collection. The darling image is Li'l Tag A-Longs L'il Bells from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection by the quintessentially talented Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps. The image was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Promarkers. I used wide grosgrain stitched ribbon topped with some Gingham Ribbon tied into a double flat bow, adding a thread spool button to the top of the bow. All of the other embellies are from Wild Orchid Crafts: Open Roses, Cosmos Daisies, Hip Rosebuds, Self-Adhesive Pearls, and Decorative Metal Corners.
 
 
The inside of my card is very simple using the same DPs, ribbons, pearls that I used on the front of the card, allowing a nice spot for jotting.
 
 
SWEET STUFF!!!
 
I just happen to have an extra L'il Bells to send to one of my commenters along with some wee treats. So if you are interested in being considered for the SWEET STUFF, just leave a comment and Mr Random.org will make his selection on Thursday.
 
Thank you so much for coming by...and I hope you will want to visit me often to see what's happening in my world...Until the next time I send big hugs to each of you!!!

Monster Lilies!!!! hahahah

I will be back a little bit later, at midnight, with the Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF but I just had to show you the lilies I have grown in my garden this year....Oh my, I thought that lilies would be about 3 feet (1 meter) tall but these are proving to be like Jack and the Beanstalk....lolol
 
So that you can compare how tall they are, I am standing in them...I am 5'4" (163 cm) tall and these darn lilies tower way over my head....I love my garden, my roses, and all my flowers and I just had to show you this happening...lolol They smell so delightful and I am truly amazed at them!!!!
 
Hugs to all!!!!!

Sweet Sparkle, Sweet WOC Daisies, and SWEET STUFF!!!!

 
 
Hello to everyone and welcome to July---gosh I can't believe that July is already here!!! Wasn't it Christmas just last week?? haha
 
Today is the first day for the next Wild Orchid Challenge and for this two weeks the theme is DAISIES and as we all know there are so many kinds and colors of daisies at the Wild Orchid Crafts for you to choose from!! Even flowers called Chrysanthemums are daisies to me!! So come on over and join in with us as there is always a very nice surprise offered by the wonderful folks at Wild Orchid Crafts!!
 
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is from the MME Collectable Notable Paper Pad. The darling SWEET SPARKLE, designed by the amazingly talented Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps, was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a wee touch of Prisma Glitter and Stardust Stickles for some sparkle. I merely added some SU polka dot ribbon to two of the corners with a double flat bow. All of the embellishments are from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop: Cosmos Daisies, Sweetheart Blossoms, Self-Adhesive Pearls, and Decorative Pins.
 
Here's a peek at a couple of the patches of Shasta Daisies from my garden....
 
 
 
I love daisies!!!!
 
 
AND
 
SWEET STUFF......
 
 
I have an extra little SWEET SPARKLE who is searching for a new home!!! Would you like to claim her for your very own?? All you have to do is leave a quick comment and she could be travelling to your home with some other wee surprises. Mr Random.org will be selecting her new home on Wednesday of this week!!
 
Thank you all so very much for dropping by and I hope you will want to come by again real soon! Until the next time, be safe, enjoy your week, and have fun!!! Big hugs!!
