{Celebrate With Blog Candy!

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am thrilled that I have had several new followers in the past few weeks.  I have also received so many sweet comments from you, and people just stopping by that I have decided to offer a fun blog candy as a way to say thank you for liking my work! My blog candy giveaway includes samples of several different colors of bakers twine from "The Twinery", lots and lots of buttons. And finally Making Memories paper flowers, chipboard, and Zva Creative felt flowers. All you have to do is comment on this post. Now if you would like a second chance at winning then become a follower and post again that you are a follower! I will pick a winner on Friday April 8th.

 Now for today's card :



My card features patterned paper from the Echo Park "Spring Time" collection. I used my SU ribbon scallop punch to create the cute borders on the banners, and I added SU pearls to add a little something to the card. I added cute purple buttons tied with lilac bakers twine from "The Twinery". Finally I finished off the card with machine stitching, and pretty spring flowers from Recollections. Today I am playing along with this weeks Waltzing Mouse Sketch challenge:



I am also playing along with these challenges:









Thank you for visiting my blog today!
