Thanks so much; Sketch #2

Thanks so much for your participation on my blog candy. I am still catching up with commenting on your blogs. Sorry if i have not been yet on YOUR blog. There were some awesome baggies submitted - unbelievable pretty and very creative. I felt like wow.. my bag is BOOOORING :-) :-)

So, i caculated all your entries.. if you worte "i will give this later a try".. i did not check your blog and looked if you have made this bag in this past week. I only counted the postings with provided link. Random org picked "Anja" from "Anjas web blog". Congratulations Anja.. you can pick a Hostess Stampin up set of your choice (Level 2 or 3).

I counted 3 times just to make sure i am making no mistake so iam pretty sure this is correct. Dear Anja.. it is now 12.30 p.m in Michigan. Please contact me at with your wish by tomorrow (Sunday 1 pm.) with your Stampin up Stampset wish. I will place the order on Monday. If i do not hear from you by this time i will pick a runner upper and announce this person 2 pm on my blog. This person has time till Monday 2 pm to contact me.

Again Thanks to ALL of you.. this was certainly fun!

Yeeaahhh.. my Magnolia Spring Kit arrived (you can now purchase these stamps separate). Unfortunately i ran out of EZ mount and i first had to order ... well this time i ordered 10 sheets - i should be all set. This was the second time i got my anticipated stamps in and had no EZ mount. What a torture :-)

It was yesterday raining all day long ... so i could get a 3 cards finished.. unfortunately the pictures did not turn out very well. This is the first card I can show you ... will have to see how it looks today. Pretty easy card... stiching was performed with the sweing machine, Sakura Stardust pen for shine on the daisies she is holiding and Stickles on her wings.
