Blog-aversary Give Away Winner

A giant Thank You! goes out to all my bloggie friends out there who stopped by and posted a comment on my blog during my One Year Blog-aversary Celebration this past week. The winning entry was randomly selected by the generator at and that winning entry is: 
#16 Joanie, with your comment on "Good Things come in Small Packages".

Please email me at with your mailing address, so I can get your package out to you.

I also hope everyone out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. I spent the afternoon watching "My San Antonio Spurs" play basketball on T.V. while working in my art journal.  Unfortunatly the team came up a little short today, but there is always the next game. They will be back in San Antonio for that one! Go Spurs Go!

OK, now on to the card of the day! 
I started with a kraft colored card base and added a Crackle Core-card stock background from Tim Holtz and Co-ordinations papers.  I then cut a printed card base from Prima  printed stock and used my Spellbinders Nestabilities Card Creator, A2 size with Distressed Edges. On top of the printed stock I attached two die cuts from the Die-namics Well Worn Greetings die from My Favorite Things. The woman's picture was then cut from printed card stock and adhered to the oval die cut.

Below the dies, I tied a single loop bow from gingham brown ribbon and attached a small tag with the phrase "Surprise!" stamped on it and attached it to the bow with a piece of hemp twine and a knot.  This card had so many layers, I decided it didn't need more dimension, other than the bow and tag.  A very simple card, that turned out to have a very vintage feel.

Thanks again for stopping by, I hope everyone has a wonderful day! 


  1. This is a wonderful vintage card. The browns and crackle paper give it an aged look, while the pink striped paper takes me back in time. I’m not sure if the lady is primping or talking on a phone, either way I feel as if I could be sitting with her . Gingham tends to make me think of long ago and county fairs. I had a red checked gingham dress and many women wore seersucker. The gingham ribbon gives the card an added touch of homeyness. Such a simple card yet it brings forth warm fuzzies.

  2. Congrats to the winner!! Your card is so beautiful!! I love the vintage image and the design!! Have a great evening :)
