Share the Wealth Saturday

Happy Saturday!  First off, let's get to the winner's announcement from Monday's giveaway.  The Fancy Pants Paper and Pink Paislee Scrap Pad go to...

Darling card, Julee :D Great use of the colours and I love all the white space. I'm ready to go surfing too LOL! Since I'm always late on getting in to trends or bypass them all together(what can I say, I've never been a trendy girl LOL!) I'd say I'm really loving buttons. Also enjoy making flowers. Have a fabulous week :D

Congrats Marisa!!!  I'll send your goodies out next week!  :)


Now, on with today's card.  I actually colored the flower from One Person to go with some of the new So Sophie papers by My Mind's Eye, but my purples ended up being to pink for the look I was going for, so I made a quick card to use up this flower.  The sentiment is stamped in Rich Razleberry and cut with the Labels 9 Nestabilities.  The aqua paper is from one of my favorites - the Tiffany's collection from We R Memory Keepers.  I added a bow in the corner and topped of the flower with some new Webster's Pages Sparklers (oh my word, I'm loving these gorgeous little things!!!).


And since my craft room still runneth over, I figure I'd have a Share the Wealth Saturday Giveaway.  Just leave a comment on this post before next Friday night (5/14) and I'll pick a winner to send a sampling of the Tiffany's Collection of paper along with some fun embellishments.  Need something to say?  Tell me what crafty thing you've been eyeing.  I've been pining away for some of that really fine Flower Soft.  I've never tried it, but see so many people create awesomeness with it.

  5. Gorgeous card, Julee! I've had a few Verve sets on my list (Feel the Sun and One Person) but just received Happy Days and Relax that I can't wait to use! I always have Spellbinders on my list - I'd love to have Labels 10 and the heart/scalloped hearts.

    Such a pretty card! Love everything about it. I've been eyeing the Pure Innocence stamps, more nestabilities and more Verve stamps. So many things, so few dollars!

    Julee...
    You are so incredibly talented on so many levels...I only hope that I can manage to reach a portion of the level of creativity. There are so very many things I love about your blog, but #1 would have to be your classy style. All of the cards that you do are awesome. I don't think that I have ever seen anything I didn't like! As for "cravings"...lately it seems that there are so many new things that I could honestly say i wouldn't know where to begin. I always look forward to New. I stamp and scrap so everything screams "BUY ME!!!"

  36. I love this card and everything about it. This sentiment really speaks to me lately. I've been wanting pretty ribbons and all the beautiful flowers I've seen used lately. Flowers are one thing I need in my embellishment box. Love the nestie labels too.

  37. Julee....you are fast convincing me that I need to get every single one of the label dies!! I've already got half of them (including some of the newbies) but when you make a gorgeous card like this....I want the rest too!!

    I've been eyeing off the Copic Air brush system for months and months....and since doing Certification last week, I now need, yes, that's right, I NEED a Copic air compressor and air brush system now, lol!! Thanks Marianne and the Copic team for encouraging my addictive behaviour. Thankfully, its my birthday next week and I'm getting the fam to contribute towards it.
    Thanks for the chance to win this sweet candy. xx

  38. Thank you for offering the giveaway of some of your treasures. How I'd love to win. What have I been eyeing recently? I have been trying to be a good girl (this economy thing, unemployed hubby, etc.) so I'm keeping my wants small. I want the Tim Holtz new dies (birdcage). Don't know if I'd ever get it, but a girl can dream can't she???

  39. Oh, thanks for sharing the goodies. I always love to see your cards. I get such inspiration from you

  40. Beautiful card, as usual. Love your stamps. The newest thing I'm keeping my eye on is the Cricut cake decorating machine. I do make quite a few cakes throughout the year for others, but not quite sure if the expense would justify it - though I guess I could start making more cakes if I get it :) Thanks for sharing your wealth!

  41. What an awesome card, just perfect! I have been eyeing the new Cuttlebug diecuts for flowers - it replaces the quilling - looks so much more easier than quilling.

  42. Love your card, the colors are so pretty. Thanks for sharing the wealth. Those are awesome flowers.

  45. Wow, I just LOVE those flowers and colours!! Thanks for offering a chance to win this :)

    I've been eying the Copic markers for a while, the steep pricetag is what held me back. I actually ordered some skin tones last weekend to start with.

  46. One crafty thing I have been eyeing is a new digital camera...a Nikon would be nice :D!

    Thanks for this chance to win some goodies :)!
