ETA: OK Guys! The winners have been chosen! You can check them out here. Thanks to all who played and read daily! I heart you all!!
I made this card with the Heart to Heart set, a new release from Verve Visual. When I saw these hearts, I wanted to try to make them into a butterfly. What is it with Julee's stamps and me turning them into insects? *grin* I also thought I could use Beate's Weekend Sketch since I haven't been able to do it in a while.
This Crate Paper from the Cowgirl collection was calling my name, but I couldn't find a brown cardstock to match. I pulled out some Kraft paper and it coordinated perfectly! The sentiment is stamped in Ruby Red...don't you love that font? I also stamped a row of hearts across the left side. That stamp is from the Wild Thing set.
To make the butterfly, I cut out 2 hearts stamped in Soft Sky on the same color, cut off the points, and scored them to fold upward. I also liked the way the distressed edge looked. The "body" is a stamp from Thoughtful Phrases and then punched out with my Word Window Punch.
So...I mentioned blog candy! Wanna see what you're playing for?
Yep, you see it right! I have one Wild Thing set and one Heart to Heart set to give away!
Since I passed 45,000 hits (HOLY MACKEREL!!) I can't do it to celebrate, so I'll do it just cause.
What do you have to do to win? Not much! I do have a question for you to answer.
I do one thing on every single blog post. What is it? There's something identical about all of them! Just leave me a comment guessing what it is, and I will randomly draw 2 names and post the winners on Thursday, January 17th.
Oh, and don't forget to leave me your email and number your post! Thanks!!
