Live in Style and a Giveaway!

Hello!  I am happy to be home today!  My house is clean, Carter is happily playing and I've been able to create!  I was a very happy girl yesterday when the postman brought my prize from Paper Crafts for Stamping Royalty!!!  Eeeek!  So today I got creative and made my first card with one of the stamps from the box:


The dress form stamp is by Inkadinkado and I stamped it on white cardstock with distress ink antique linen, than stamped it in vintage photo and sweet plum by memento cut them out and layered it over.  I was going to use a pink but so glad I did something different and went with the plum!  The sentiment is from Hero Arts Past Times set, I thought it fit so well!  :>  It  may be hard to tell in the photo but the cardstock is a deep purple!  :>

So I know you want to see some photos of my prize and I would love to share it with you, even though I look horrible here's a photo of an excited me and the box 

Here is what I saw when I opened the box:

Opps I opened the box upside down!  Only me which means that the picture is of me with an upside down box!  :>  It's the mailman's fault, he gave it to me that way!  Here is everything inside:

I counted around 24 stamp sets!  6 bottles of tatered angels glimmer mist, 2 ranger ink pads, and 3 packages of American Crafts markers!  You know how much I love stamping so you know how happy I am!  I am in stamping heaven!  Here is the personalized bag they sent:



 I have a giveaway in celebration of my win!  This is for any followers of my blog!  You need to be a follower (if it's by email let me know) in order to win!  I am so thankful for all my followers!  Especially those who take the time to leave me comments!!!

You look so happy Anita and you should! I was just at Indigo yesterday looking at magazines and was so happy to see your silhoute(spelled wrong--Oops!) card in it and found myself smiling real big. Then I looked in another mag and there was another work of art belonging to you. So great to see work of gals I know especially Canadian ones. So proud of you right now and can't wait to see what else your blessed with. Big Hugs.
