ATC Friends Are Like Diamonds plus time for the Giveaway Winner

Magazine cover by Earl Christy

My son's birthday is today. He's 6 now and vast asleep next to me. Shhh...

As I told earlier, I'm having a little giveaway.

It's an ATC which I made on an old playing card. I used a picture of a beautiful lady by the hand of Earl Christy. Don't you think that's a most gorgeous picture?

On this ATC I added stamps, inks, glitter gel pen, lace, flower, "Friends are like diamonds", ribbon and a rhinestone.


The Random Number Generator said no. 110...

Congratulations Shane!

My ATC plus a little surprise package will come your way.
I'll send you an email so I can get your address.

Be sure to visit her gorgeous blog Roses, Lace and Brocante. Especially if you love all things rosy, lacy, brocante and French!


Today I got a present, yay!!! My new blog friend McKenna of Chic Crafting was so sweet to send me a birthday present. She crochetted a amigurumi octopus. Although it's pink, my son immediately declared it to be his.

So cute!! Thank you McKenna!!


And last but not least I wanted to show you a sneak peak from the project I made for the guest design spot at City Crafters. It's an altered book with several tags and cards with journaling spots. I'm having big problems with making this one, but I'll tell you the story next time! And then there will be more photos of it as well.

My goodness, this has been a Pink heavy post!

Wonderful day to you!
