Feeling completely spoiled and a WINNER!

Good morning all! So sorry to keep you in suspense if you've been checking in for a candy winner... we 'fell back' with our clocks last night so I gained an hour of sleeping in on my day off and it was SO needed. ;)
But I'm here now, batteries recharged, ready to announce the winner of this week's Fairy Sweet candy! Are you ready for it? Here goes!

This week's winner is......................................SEMSEE

Congratulations!!! Email me at with your address and I will get your goodies off to you just as soon as I can. :)

Don't forget that we have one more candy give-away to go so be sure to check it out tomorrow!

Alrighty, so onto my post for the day and why I'm feeling completely spoiled... remember last week when I put a call out for Elf Anya images? Well the fabulous Erin and amazing Kristina answered my call and then some! They are neighbors and 'huge stamping freaks' (Kristina's words...) ;) Well they worked as a team to help me out and I am now a very excited fellow 'stamping freak' with lots of little Elf Anyas to play with! But that's not all! Each of them sent me a GORGEOUS card and Erin, bless her heart, even sent me an entire card class kit that she teaches! OMG, they are SO cool... I can only imagine the fun her students have in class! So huge thanks again gals, you totally made my week!
In fact I even used one of Erin's kits for the base of this card. I changed it up slightly (hope you don't mind Erin) not because it wasn't perfect as is but because I already had a plan in mind for the TGF "Home is where..." challenge. The colors and patterns she put together where totally inspiring and had that home-y feel I was looking for. :)
I altered Wild Sprouts Annika slightly by removing her books and replacing them with the pup head from the Signature set and I drew in the rest of his body so he would look like he's dangling in her arms. I totally love my little yorkie so I truly agree with this twist on the classic sentiment. Where Duke is, smiling (oh yes he 'smiles' though it looks more like baring his teeth LOL) and wagging his little stub of a tail when I return from work... that is home. :)
See you bright and early tomorrow with the third and final (for this release) Fairy Sweet candy!
