I Won!

I'm so excited! I can't believe it, I've never won anything in a blog contest...until now!

This past weekend, there was a snippet blog hop over at The Greeting Farm. They were giving out one prize at each of the designers blogs to 1 lucky commenter and I won over at Jessica's blog. I won the Gingerbell set which is being released tomorrow. Jessica made a gorgeous card using this set. I can't wait to get it and ink it up!

On Friday's TGF usually posts a Farm Fresh Friday challenge and since I was in the card making groove I took the challenge. It was a sketch challenge.

Here is my entry using the Edward stamp fromTGF Wild Sprouts collection. When I made this card I was thinking of the beginning of the New Moon book when Edward leaves Bella for her own good. He must have spent many nights in the forest with his memories of her.

Paper Far East Stack
Embellishments: Velvet ribbon, square squiggly is Stampin Up.
Coloured using Faber Art pencil crayons.

My daughter made another card too using the Edward stamp. She is getting really into this. You should see some of the coloring she did this weekend. I think there are some fabulous cards to come from her in the near future.

Back to quilty stuff for the rest of the week, I have lots of UFO's which I am excited to finish.
