A Thank You and A Giveaway!!

Hello my Crafty Friends!

Today I wanted to share a Thank you card I created for some special people. It is being sent to these special people but this is also a card for you, my followers! You have been so sweet! Thank you for all your encouraging comments. Each of you inspire me greatly! Because I have reached and surpassed 500 followers there is a giveaway at the end of this post. But, first, my card :)

I created this card with several challenges in mind.

The first is the Peachy Keen Stamps: Challenge #48. Here is my card:


You must use this sketch:

Here is a picture of the cute little bee using Peachy Keen Stamps. I used PK-560 Dolly Dumplins Face Assortment.

Here is a picture showing all the dimension:
I used Freshly Picked, Create A Critter, and Accent Essentials Cricut cartridges, Peachy Keen Stamps ~ PK-560 Dolly Dumplins, Kraft Cardstock, a Fiscars punch, ticket stamp from Whimsy Stamps, Ranger Distress Ink in Tea Dye, Recollection pearls, American Crafts ribbon, and my black and white gelly roll pens.

I am also submitting this card to the following challenges:

Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge #48
My Creative Time ~ Throwback Thursday ~ use green
Bug Bites ~ use a bug
The Kraft Journal ~ "Oh Baby It's Spring"
The Paper Variety ~ Tic Tac Toe Challenge ~ I used Make A Card, Use scallops, stamped image or sentiment.
A Spoonful of Sugar ~ Challenge #144 Ribbon, Pearls/Rhinestones, and flowers
Paper Cutz Challenge ~ Anything Goes

Now on to my Follower Giveaway!!

Because I have reached 500 + followers I wanted to have a giveaway!

Here is what I am giving away:

This giveaway is for my followers ie. crafty friends :) for your awesome support! So, followers ie. crafty friends, just leave a comment with a way for me to contact you. Please, only one entry per person. This giveaway will end April 4th at midnight EST.

Thank you all again!

Hugs,
Saundra :)

Wow...I can't believe I missed posting (at least I didn't think I saw my name). Your card is lovely. The purple flowers are vibrant and the pearls add a neat touch right in the center. The smile on the bee brought a smile to my face too.

Your card is just wonderful.
