Giveaway Week 3 & A Winner!!

Hello!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend, with much rest and time to craft.  I had quite a scary weekend - my dad wasn't well on Saturday evening and we spent 5 hours in the hospital ER.  Thankfully, his blood pressure stabilised and after some MRI and blood tests, I could bring him home.  Sunday was spent recuperating for all of us.. ;-)

Today, I have another card from Wee Stamps that I really love, Sweet Blossom.  I thought she would look rather sweet in soft shades.

The girl was stamped on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copics (I'm sorry I didn't record down the colours I've used).  The background paper is from My Mind's Eye Madison Avenue and pearls from Zva Creative.  Here's another view of the card:

The image was cut using Spellbinders Labels Twenty Two and sponged with Distress Ink Tattered Rose.  I hope you like the card.

Ok, continuing with the Birthday Month Giveway... I can't believe we're onto Week 3!  I have another stamp set for this week by Unity.  It's one of my favourite sets, and I have a spare one:

The rules are the same.  Just comment on ALL my posts this week (just from Mon to Fri), and you will be in the draw.  And if the Winner is a follower of my blog, you'll get an additional Unity set.  I'll reveal the set next week, when I announce the winner, just as a little surprise.

I was feeling a little tired last night, so I decided to put everyone who commented last week on any of my posts in the draw, and have pick out a number.  So... the winner of Week 2 Giveway is...


Congrats, Lindsey!!  You win the Paper Girl stamp set, and since you are a follower of my blog, you get an additional prize, this Gina K stamp set.  

I have emailed you, and the prizes will be on its way to you soon.

Stay tuned, Friends, as I have more attractive prizes next week as well a set of Spellbinders dies on the last week of November.   

Take care, and have a great week!

Your cards are always just gorgeous! I love the shading around the die cut label and that beautiful stamped image!!
So glad your dad is okay. I have a mom who is in poor health so I know how scarey those hospital ER visits can be.
