Hello dear friends thank you for visiting me today.
Today I participate in a very special challenge… Papertake weekly is turning 5!!!! OMG I can not believe it it is one of the challenge blogs I was with when I started to blog. I hardly can’t believe it that its already that long.
Well and since my friend Dawny has set up a very special birthday party for the blog.. there are some AWESOME prizes on Papertake Weekly to win AND also on the DT blogs.
So if you leave me a comment here, you are entering for a stamp which Janice from Sir Stampalot has sponsored. I will draw the winner on Friday and you will have until Saturday to get in contact with me. No strings attached just have fun, hop to all at the blogs and join in.
If you do like to enter for the big prizes on Papertake Weekly – the theme this time is “ANYTHING GOES” easy as pie.
I’d like to take a few minutes to talk about my card. A while back I have made for dear Pamela a anniversary card to give to her parents. She really liked this card and today is her very own anniversary – CONGRATULATIONS Pamela! and she asked me if I could make a card to give to her husband. She asked me if I would essentially re-make the first card but since I am out of the Basic Grey Wisteria paper we looked through some other paper options and she found this image by Lili of the Valley she also loved very much.
The making of this card took longer than usually. I do get often asked how long a card takes me.. I can tell you this one took me good 5 hours to make. Every layer is sewn, the scalloped edge around the circular image, have been trimmed apart a border strip and arranged by hand and glued down. It’s fun to do this sometimes – but for sure not always :-0)
Here are all the supplies:
Stamps: Lili of the Valley “Close your eyes”
Sentiment: Lili of the Valley (outside), Stampin up (inside) – I love you much – Happy Anniversary
other stamps: Stempelglede
Design Paper: Lili of the Valley “Promises”
Coloring: Copic Sketch
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Vintage photo
Dies: Spellbinder circle, Magnolia Lovely Tag, Magnolia swirl, Cheery Lynn (borders)
Other: paper doily, ribbon (Michaels), gauze, gem stickers, bakers twine, lace cut butterfly (Unique Hobbyproducts )
Thank you again for your stay.. and please do not forget to enter your name for a drawing of a rubberstamp
Happy 5th Birthday
Fabulous card, great image

Hi there Claudia me back again.. just checking to see whether the draw has been made yet and it has not that I can see, on two posts above.
May I be possibly make a point on the draw please?
this is what you said:
"So if you leave me a comment here, you are entering for a stamp which Janice from Sir Stampalot has sponsored. I will draw the winner on Friday and you will have until Saturday to get in contact with me. No strings .. just have fun, hop to all at the blogs and join in.."
My point is this - I am in Australia. It is 10 hours ahead of GMT and you may be possibly be anything up to another ten or eight hours behind GMT.
It is now Sunday late afternoon here, and so by my reckoning it should have been announced by now ie Friday your time, or by Sat or Sunday our time here ...
But really I have no idea.. time is so variable and if we only have 24 hours to contact if we do happen to win, it is too hard. Maybe have method where you can contact us.. or was it be to announced on another blog??
I am very sorry if sounds like a big whinge but just thought you may have realised we dont all live in US or even in Uk.
Love your cards this and one published on Saturday too, thanks so much for sharing, Shaz in oz.x
Fab colour combo, Beautiful card as ever. :) Jen xx
Happy 5th birthday! Your card is truly amazing, and I can't believe it took you 'only' 5 hours!
