It's Friday, Featuring a winner, an enabler alert and some artwork...

I have a few things to post today and you don't want to miss out on any of it so be sure to read through the whole post!

1st, I have to share a website I recently found. **ENABLER ALERT** That's right - if you're like me, you'll visit this site and find yourself hooked!

It's called Peachy Cheap and they offer only one item for sale every day at an incredible savings!!!! I bought a set of 5 acrylic stamps from My Mind's Eye the other day for only 3.99!!! (plus shipping). And today's special was two 8-page booklets of awesome clear stickers....lots of swirls and flourishes....oh, this is not going to be good on my checkbook! Check-it-out and happy addiction, I mean shopping! lol


2nd on the agenda today is to bring you a new card I created for a challenge at The Greeting Farm - to create a card that is anything but square! This is what I came up with:





This little Easter cutie was created by cutting the card with a scalloped oval nestie that I set off the folded edge a bit so it kept part of the card together at the fold. I then created the background by adding strips of various ribbons that slightly overlap each other, working from the top and the bottom edges to the center. I added some pale pink sparkles to the scallops and then added the adorable Easter Anya to the card front with foam tape. She was, of course, all colored with Copics and Diamond Stickles were added to her eggs and ears. This Anya is a digi image from TGF. These are so inexpansive and fun to work with - just print and color!

Last but not least, the winner for the month of March in the So Sketchy Sundays is Carla Harrah - congratulations!!!! I will get in touch with you (or you drop me an email) and I will mail out your blog candy prize!

There's more goodies for April so keep playing every week with the So Sketchy Sundays! And watch for a bigger blog candy opportunity soon as I approach my 10,000th visitor to my blog!

Have a creative weekend!

This is an adorable Easter card. I just love the Anya images (don't have any yet, but I keep seeing all of the cute things everyone's doing with them.) My hubby's not certain abt the enabling thing ;), though.
