Bold and Bright 57

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, April 7, 2011 @ 7:10 PM | , , ,

T.G.I. almost F.! :) I'm ready for the weekend, how about you? Do you have anything fun going on? I'm looking forward to seeing a funny movie with my hubby and step children ~ Who can't use a good belly laugh? :)

I made this Bold and Bright card for no other reason other than to thank all of you who are so kind to take the time to not only visit my blog but leave such sweet and encouraging comments. I realize that you have thousands upon thousands of blogs to visit so I am so grateful and thankful you choose to visit little ole' me :) I am very proud to say that I have never asked or required anyone to join along on my personal blog.
I challenged myself to use the bold and bright patterned paper from The Girl's Paperie. I stamped a label from Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 18 then using a combination of Labels 18 and Classic Ovals SM die templates to create a frame to frame the THANK YOU Kindly sentiment from Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases. The little motif is from Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 4.

I hope Claire treats us all to an ENTIRE set of her beautiful motifs, both big and small. It's on my loooong wish list for Claire so maybe one day. Until then, I will just keep lovin' the ones I have :)
As a small way to Thank You for supporting me on my papercrafting journey, I have a little give away. I wish I could afford to give something to all of you but I can't :( I would love to share the packages of flowers shown in the photo below with ONE of you. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I will use Random.org to select ONE lucky commenter. I will announce the winner here on my blog on Sunday, April 10th. Winner will have 48 hours to contact me by email at mlpendleton@cox.net.
 Good Luck ~ Thanks so much for visiting! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases, Very Vintage Labels No. 4, Very Vintage Labels No. 18
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Labels 18, Classic Ovals SM, Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: The Girl's Paperie, Echo Park
