Hey All! I've been so excited to do this post today because I get to announce my first winner of my first blog candy give away! Try not to cheat and scroll down to look. Savor the moment! I've posted a new card today as well as a new picture of the week! Today's card is a thank you card that I did in black and silver. Here it is. . .
This was my second use of my Cuttlebug. I did the butterfly with it, and I love how it turned out! The stamped image is from Stampendous, and it has three flower heads. To get this image, I simply stamped the image 3 times at different angles. I used Versamark embossing ink and then used silver embossing powder on the stamped image and the sentiment. You can see a close up below:
The Cuttlebug cutting die set consists of a die to cut the butterfly, and then 4 embossing sleeves to emboss the cut out. I chose the scrolly one, but the others are beautiful and I have card ideas to use them on for later. I then put a few bling crystals on the butterfly and tied the bow. The ribbon is actually silver and black (doesn't show that well in the photo below).
There you have it! I'm going to give it to a local artist here in Carmel. She has a shop on the main street, and when she closes her shop at night, she leaves two bowls of water out in front of her shop along with a jar full of dog treats for all of us who walk our dogs past her shop in the evening. She is so cool!
OK! OK! OK! Here is the winner of my first blog candy give away! Remember, I entered all the people who left comments on that post onto Random.Org (by the way, thanks so much for the supportive, sweet, kind words that you all left! Hugs to all of you!) and then hit the randomize button. The winner was the person who actually came out last on the list. And the winner is . . . . .Deb Neerman! Congrats Deb! Please send me your snail mail address so that I can get you your prize! The list is below showing where everyone fell:

Thanks again everyone! I wish I could give everybody something. However, I plan on having more of these, and I have lots of fun ideas to do it too, so keep checking back!
Well that's it for this post! Don't forget the pic of the week below. I took this a couple of mornings ago while walking the boys in a local park. Isn't he/she adorable?
Take care all! Thanks again very much!
