Holding my breath till Friday!

I submitted my Thank you card this morning for the next round for Paper Crafts Gallery Idol contest. I did a few others first but decided I was making myself way to nervous so I burnt a CD with some of my fave 'relaxing' songs on it to listen to. It consisted of a lot of Counting Crows (Raining in Baltimore is one of my all time fave songs) with some of The Fray and Timberland's new song featuring JT and Nelly Furtado. I know that really doesn't fit in with the others but I have to jam a little right? Once I relaxed and told myself to just let it flow, it did. This is what I came up with.

  • BasicGrey Lilly Kate paper
  • Hampton Arts Clear Expressions stamp
  • Marvy Mega Scalloped Oval punch
  • Chocolate Chip classic ink
  • stickles, ribbon, and pop dots
I cut out several of those little flowers and popped them up for some dimension and added stickles for shine! The final size is 8 x 4 1/2. I am completely happy with it and that's all that matters!!!

Voting starts at 2:00 EST today and ends on Thursday. So, if you like my card please take a minute to send a vote my way! Here is the link to this round. I'll provide a direct link to voting once they post the info!

On another note I might get 10,000 hits today!!!! And you all know what that means!!!! Blog Yummies!! It might take me a few days to get everything ready though. How about this. I'll wait till Friday to post the candy and if I make it to the top 15 because of all of you out there who love me, I'll add in something EXTRA SPECIAL! So, go vote peeps!!!!

Creative Expressions by Stephanie said... is stunning & you really deserve to make top 15. I am off to vote now. I have been a little mia as my youngest has been super sick this past week & my hubby gone out of town for work. He is still gone but she is much better today, so things should go much smoother now.

Good luck chickie!!
