WOW!! Thank you!

Oh my gosh!  The Blog Tour was a huge success!  I’ve heard so many of you who thought it was a great idea.  Don’t worry…we’ll be doing it again soon!  I know I had over 2400 visitors and over 150 comments!  Thank you for visiting!  It really gives me some warm and fuzzies to know that you appreciate the time and effort everyone went through to pull this off.  Thanks to Lucia Kaiser and Diane McCornack who organized the Tours…there were only a few speed bumps along the way due to their hours of effort in making sure it ran smoothly!

Now…I know I promised to reveal the winner of the Blog Candy…but I’d really like to read through the comments and enjoy them…if you don’t mind?  I’ll have my hubby pull a number when he gets home from work this evening…so check back!

In the meantime…here is another set I love in the Occasions Mini Catalog…Just Beachy!  It reminds me of my childhood!  My parents had one of those Woody Station Wagons when I was growing up…you know…with the faux wood grain along the side!  For my card, I used the LNS Sketch Challenge (Late Night Stampers) from last week that I didn’t get done in time.  I saved it because it is a cool sketch!

I started with a base of Regal Rose and layered two different patterns from Sweet Always Designer Paper (I actually layered the patterns on Whisper White to give them some stability to hold together).  Then I wrapped the 5/8 Regal Rose ribbon around top to bottom.  I covered the seam between the patterns with 1/2 circles punched from Pumpkin Pie.  I stamped the Woody in Basic Brown and used my Blender Pen and markers to color it in with Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and the surf board in Regal Rose.  I layered this piece on Chocolate Chip.  Finally, I added another loop of Regal Rose ribbon at the top to make a flat bow.  I like it!

Well…I’m off to a dentist appointment today and hopefully I’ll get a chance to stamp this afternoon!  I have some prep to do, too, as soon as my order gets here today!  And…I need to read thru the comments!  Thanks again, everyone…

This is such a fun stamp set. I like pink & orange together (who wouldn’t grin at a pink surfboard…lol).
