Dream Card and WINNERS!!

Happy Thursday, everyone!! It's almost the weekend!! Do you have any fun plans?? I hope to get some yard/garden work done, flowers planted... Also, I have to apologize. I follow quite a few blogs through email and I'm getting some, but not all of the notifications when a new post is up. My auto-post is finally working again and now this happens :( Blogger has been so frustrating lately. On that note, if you don't have the option of following your blog by email, its such a great feature to can add it as a gadget on your sidebar and then your followers will know when you post...assuming it works!!

Before I announce winners for two giveaways, I have a card to enter into the Little Scrap Pieces - Use a Bow challenge :)

All of the paper is My Mind's Eye. The base of the card is a Spellbinders Grand Label 23. The second layer is a Label 20, embossed with the Cuttlebug Forest Branches embossing folder, inked with Walnut Distress ink, as are all of the edges. The next layer is a Label 2. I created a double-bow, thanks to my dear friend, Sherrie of Sherrie Scraps With Passion!! Sherrie posted an awesome tutorial (view it HERE) on how she makes her bows, which I have loved forever!!

The top elements, the box, bird, branch, crown and banner are from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Mix'd Media Elements. I inked the bird and banner with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, the branch and edges with Walnut.

Dream is from K Andrew Designs Winged Things stamp set. I taped over the "s". Click HERE to purchase your own set!!
