We've got winners for every season

Good morning!

What do you say we start this weekend off with a few candy winners? We had such a great turnout for the new February stamp previews, and it was so much fun to read all of the enthusiastic comments both here and on the Sweet November Gals' blogs as well. :)

Okey dokey... no sense in keeping you all in suspense any longer. So without further ado the winner's of the Sweet November February candies are:

  • Bloom goes to- Jennifer
  • Shroom goes to- Cami
  • Nutter goes to- biggirlbri
  • and Pine goes to- Debora

Congratulations ladies! Please email me at: pete_danger @ hotmail.com with your mailing info and I will get your prizes sent out on Monday. :)
Big thanks again to everyone who came out for the reveals... without you they wouldn't be nearly as much fun!

And as for my card today, I actually made this for the CC Designs cutter preview on the ATS blog the other day. I used the new Swiss Pixie Nymph Lucy as well as the Woodland Logos and the mushroom border die. A while back Christine and I were chatting and I mentioned that I hadn't ever seen a mushroom border available in either punch form or die so I was thrilled when I saw this cool cutter for the first time... I think that she totally nailed it!
I actually cut the design out of three different cardstocks, then snipped the caps off of the kraft and orange ones and glued them to the white base. Add a bit of shading with my Copics and white dots with my Sharpie and I'm lovin' how they turned out! As for Lucy, I stamped her twice too... once on cardstock and once on vellum. Then I fussy cut the wings off of Lucy on the cardstock version and glued the vellum wings in their place. I thought this made them look more dragonfly like which is why I paired her up with a couple of dragonfly pals. ;)

Hope your Saturday is a great one!
XOXO
