pink flower and another giveaway!

Hello!  Happy Tuesday!  I cannot believe that we are already at August 24th!  Summer is almost done :<  I don't usually find that August flies so fast like it did this year!  Hope your all having a great start to the week!  I have had a nice relaxing start after a busy busy and hot weekend!  Yesterday I had no mojo and went on a cleaning spree through my house like a maniac!  It sure needed it!  Thankfully it returned in the evening when I went to my friend Charlotte to craft with!  I had a great time!  

I made another card for the current Hero Arts challenge.  I love this flower so much and after picking up this ribbon on the weekend at my LSS I wanted to play with pink!  Lately I have really been into ribbon, maybe it's because I finally have "mastered" tying the ribbon with the tails sideways instead of down the only way I used to be able to do it?  Which way do you like ribbon to be tied?  Anyways here is my card:




So fun to make!  I embossed the flower in white, and than used my ink pad to color it in, and than sprayed it with a mix of water and perfect pearls! I added some pink rhinestones, did you know my favorite color is pink?  I am sure that is not surprising.  :>

I have another giveaway today.  I apologize for the break I took in my giveaways last week.  Life got busy with working a few shifts (when I don't normally it's harder to adjust!) and Carter's birthday party.  I am sure you understand!  (Rather than a big blog candy I am doing 5 smaller giveaways to 5 different people)  Here is what I am giving away today:

  
It's another embossing folder by Cuttlebug, Candy Cane Stripe!  I love it!  I want to keep it for me they only had one at the LSS but I am giving it to one of you!  :>  Here are the deets on my giveaways (I added links to the others at the bottom of this post)

You have to be a follower to my blog.

I would very much appreciate it if you would mention my giveaways this week on your blog, facebook, twitter your choice.  You do not have to do a separate post about it or even share photos maybe just mention it with a link.  And you don't have to do one for each giveaway either, you could wait until I post all the giveaways if you would like.  

You can live anywhere in the world I am willing to send it wherever.  Having small giveaways makes it cheaper and easier to send far off.

Leave a comment on this post for this prize.  I will only draw on this post for this prize.  I will try to figure out random.org to draw the prize.
You have until Monday September6, 2010 to enter to win this prize!
I have two other giveaways going on right now until Monday August 30, 2010.  One is HERE and the other one is HERE I would love it if you would enter!

Hi Anita, please don't put me in your drawing, but I just wanted to say how much I love your card today - I'm a pink lover too. Can you believe that I've been playing with the exact stamp most of the afternoon? Colored mine with distress inks......it's fun to play with, isn't it? Hugs!

Great card
sometimes ribbon is easier to ty sideways sometimes down--I just go with whichever way the ribbon wants to go.

The pretty pink flower card is awesome!! I just wish I can find that stamp. It's always sold out when I do get to the LSS that sells HA stamps.

Donna said...

Anita,
Gorgeous card, and love the pink flower, and the BOW, god would give anything if I could make good bows, for some reason that is a week point for me. I can make good bows for dogs, was a dog groomer for almost 20 years, but tiny little bows, forget it!!
Great job.
Donna
