Thank You With Love and Seasons Givings WINNERS

Hi friends! Happy Monday!  I've spent the last few days quarantined in my bedroom with influenza and a severe ear infection in the hopes of not spreading my misery to the twins.  They both have ear infections of their own, but appear to have steered clear of the flu so far.  My hubby says it might be a saving grace that I can't hear out of one ear because the boys have been screamers all weekend long.  {eeek!}

Anyhow, it's the first Monday of the month and I finally felt steady enough (the ear infection is wreaking havoc on my balance) yesterday afternoon to sneak down the hall to my studio and make a quick little card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.  It's contest week and that means there are Verve prizes up for grabs!  Come play along, the more entries, the more winners!



Since I was trying to make a quick card, I just pulled scraps from my desk... the espresso panel, the crumb cake panel and the hearts had already been cut and tossed aside from other projects, so I just distressed them a bit, crimped the espresso layer and added the with love sentiment from Chevron Love.  The thank you sentiment is from Friendly Phrases and I stapled it on, then layered everything onto a white card base embossed with chicken wire embossing folder.  I finished off with some twine and rhinestones to bling it up for Verve's Shimmer & Shine Inspiration Challenge.

Enabler's List
Stamps: Chevron Love, Friendly Phrases (Verve Stamps)
Paper: crumb cake, early espresso, cherry cobbler (SU!), white
Ink: early espresso, cherry cobbler (SU!), brushed corduroy (Ranger Distress)
Accessories:  Heart Quartet Die, Flag it Die Set (A Cut Above by VERVE), paper corrugator, tiny attacher, linen thread, rhinestones, Chicken Wire embossing folder (Cuttlebug)

Okay, that's all about the card.  Now it's time to announce the winners of my Seasons Givings Blog Hop Giveaways!  Thanks to everyone who commented.  It was such a blessing to read your wonderful words as I was under the weather.  I loved reading each and every one!

  2. Gorgeous card, Julee. Isn't it amazing what we can do with just a few supplies we have at hand? I should try that more often LOL. I hope you and the boys will feel better soon and I wish you all the best for the remainder of the year.

  12. Glad to hear you are getting better. Today's card is beautiful! That could be a blog challenge, all on its own: make something with the scraps on your craft table, with before and after photos. Thanks so much for the Verve GC win! This is my birthday month, so I'm singing HB2me!
