A New Winner!! And My Funny Valentine

Stamps: penguin and sentiment by Memory Box
Paper: DP by Imaginisce;
Ink: Memento Black; Copics
Basic Grey Bittersweet Glazed Brads; half pearls; Sizzix Top Note Die; Nestibilities; Ribbon unknown; cuttlebug embossing folder
Card Measures 4.25"x 5.5"

This card is for another Mystery Image Challenge. (
For these Mystery image challenges we sign up not know what image the Hostess will send us. There is an assigned hostess (Sue this time) who sends out the same image of her choosing to each of the participants. The hostess usually sends out several copies of the image to each participants...just in case of mistakes or we want to layer. The hostess also assigns us a person to sent to. Then we each make our own version of the card and mail it to our assignee. It's neat to see how each of us implements the same image into a card.) I think these Memory Box penguins are adorable! So this was not much of a "challenge", but still FUN! Why is it that glitter will not photograph well? Except for that little speck that doesn't belong on the left side of the black cardstock! You can't even see any glitter on the black IRL...but it's there in every pic! *sigh*

Last night I was so excited to see that one of my cards that I made for Inky Antics is featured on their homepage! Of course the glitter on the flower can't be! Check it out!! Toot! Toot! (That's me tooting my own horn...hahaha)


And can you believe that the First Place winner for my Blog Yummies didn't contact me?! Hey, I figure if they want it bad enough then they can come back and see if they won, right? And, after all, everyone was to have signed up for email alerts or to follow my blog via Google Reader, right? Right!

That means

GAIL moves up to 1st place!

SUZY moves up to 2nd place!

And the third place winner is JUDI!

I've been signed up through Feedblitz for quite some time to read your blog - can't wait to get there daily to see what you have come up with that is new - and I don't have a blog but do a yahoo group and will CC on the email that I send to them. I honestly haven't been great about commenting on blogs, although I have a few times, so will add your "rule" to my challenge list to myself to make myself do this more often. Thank you for sharing your talent with those of us who feel a bit more challenged!

Judi, you have until 9 AM on Sunday to email me with your address. Crazy_4_stamping @ (remove spaces)

Will Judy contact me? Stay tuned!

I want to again thank everyone that participated in my Blog Yummy give-away! I received so many lovely comments! And I got to check out some great blogs! I have not yet completed that list.


One last thing: Claudia is offering some SWEET BLOG CANDY! Check it out!!
