Hi Ladies, I hope you are all having a Wonderful Weekend :) Before I go any further, I need to share with you the winner of my give away. Drum roll please.....and the Winner is.....

Julie Ranae

Julie, please email me your address prior to Wednesday, November 25th so I can get your goodies to you :)

The saying "it is a SMALL world" even applies to Blogosphere! Julie Ranae happens to be the Manager/Creator of The Play Date Cafe Creativity Challenge site! I want to send a BIG Thank You to ALL the girls on The Play Date Cafe DT for selecting my Happy Birthday card last week as their Featured Spotlight Winner :) This week's colors for The Play Date Cafe Creativity Challenge #5, PDCC5 is being hosted by Julie Campbell. This is what Julie had to say about her inspiration photo, "Being a vintage girl at heart, I fell in love with the beautiful vintage-looking perfume bottles. The colors really drew my eye--I love that the light blue next to the purple...a little bit of

silver, some soft and lovely white all around." I have to agree with Julie, the vintage bottles in this photo with the Beautiful colors are very alluring! I combined a few more challenges to create this card: This week's challenge at the Cards Blog site is to use Buttons, 5 of them! & for Sketch Inspiration: Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #92, TESC92. For your enjoyment & for inspiration, please be sure to check out all the sites that I have mentioned :) Thanks for stopping by today & for taking a peek :) Be Sweet!


I used these colors to make a Mother's Day card.

I have been taking my sewing machine for a daily walk lately :)

I was sooo excited to receive the Spellbinder's Butterfly die set in the mail this week :) / I soooo wish Spellbinders would have offered more than 3 various sides in this set :( / On this card, I used the small & medium sized dies, layering each Butterfly x 2. I sandwiched all the lil' blue Butterflies in a Sizzix Dot EF, then sent them through the Sizzix Big Shot Express.

I used the large & medium Butterfly dies x 2 each to make the tag. The silver embossed PTI flourish images really "POPS" off the SU Rich Razzleberry cs.

I made a few butterflies to share with someone :) All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by Saturday, November 28th EST. I will use Random.Org to select a winner & announce the winner on my post Sunday, November 29th. Please play nice & BE SWEET, ONLY one comment per person :)

Ingredients Used: Stamps: SU Best Yet, Fancy Flexible Phrases, PTI Fancy Flourishes Paper: SU Rich Razzleberry, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Anna Griffin DP Ink: VersaMark, Ranger/Tim Holtz Tea dye Sprinkles: Spellbinders Butterfly, EK Success punches, generic buttons, Making Memories hardware, SU silver cord, Sizzix EF x 2, PTI twine, Offray ribbon, Cuttlebug scalloped flower die

Well, now that I have picked myself up off the floor, may I just say WoW! I am so happy to have won such a fabulous prize. The Cuttlebug dies are not very accessible around my neck of the woods, so what a treat! So thank you Mona!

I am so glad that through visiting Cupcake's Creations you found The Open Window!

Your creation for this week's challenge is a stunner! The girls love having you visit The Play Date Cafe and hope you will for a long time to come! xx

Your card is beautiful, and are everyone else's. I love the butterflies.

It took me a while to realize that I only had to click on the names and I too could see the cards that others entered. Duh! And then I had to enter my card twice, because the first time all I posted was the picture of the card, and not my blog. So, hopefully I have it down now. I also will be sure and leave posts on everyone's cards. Sorry. I'm new to blogging. I haven't figured out the blinky thing yet. (To others I've mentioned this to before I have copied the code from the blinky, and then I've gone back to my blog and clicked on ad a gadget, and then posted the code in the html box. The one and only time I did that, it totally wiped out the blog site. So I don't know if I'm supposed to add this to then end of what is showing up, or if it shouldn't be showing up there. One day I'll get this straight, I hope.

TFS,
