Good Morning All of My Amazing Followers,

Today is a special day, it is my blog Anniversary. One year ago today I started sharing with all of you my creations. I have come so far, it is so amazing and I can not thank you all enough for following little old me. And thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for leaving me such AMAZING comments, they truly brighten my day!!

So today I made a special card dedicated to each and everyone of my AMAZING followers. I made this card over the weekend and was going to post it Saturday since I used the AMAZING (I think I like that word today ;)) Nikki Sivils Scrapbooking Paper but I decided I would save this card till today because it is how I feel about all of you, my wonderful followers!! I designed this card is my gypsy with the Birthday Bash Cartridge. I also added the perfect sentiment stamp from My Pink Stamper's stamp set "Fruit & Veggie Puns".



Details and Material Used:
  • 4.5" x 4.5" Size Card - 4.5" x 9.25" (Folded in Half) Card image cut from Birthday Bash Cartridge
  • 1st Layer - 3.90" x 3.90"
  • 2nd Layer - 3.70" x 3.70"
  • Ice Cream Sundae cut at 1.50" - Birthday Bash Cartridge
  • Patterned Paper - Nikki Sivils, "Sugar Cookie" & "Will He B the 1"
  • White, Pink & Craft Card Stock - Recollections
  • Tag - 2 1/4" x 1"
  • My Pink Stamper Stamp Set "Fruit & Veggie Puns"
  • Tsukineko Dew Drop - Coffee Bean
  • Studio G - White Ink
  • Diamond Gems - Joanns
  • Ribbon - Walmart
  • White Gelly Roll Pen by Sukura  
  • Adhesives - ATG, Zig 2-way & Pop Dots
So without further ado the winner of the AMAZING Nikki Sivils Scrapbooking Paper, donated by None Other then Nikki herself is.........................................
