LOADS of Ribbon Winner Announced!!!

Happy Happy Monday to you!  Yes, another week has flown by... I can feel the gray hairs growing as I 'speak!'  Speaking of hair... I *think* I'm going to get my hair cut (again).  I'm used to having it cut short - OUT of my eyes and 'away from my sweaty neck short' lol.  Now to find just the right photo to show my hairstylist : )

This weekend, my hubby had TWO days off!  Yep, we didn't know what to do with ourselves on this rare occasion hee hee...  He sure needed the break!  But soon enough, he'll have so much time on his hands he'll be looking for work.  Do you need some work done around your house?  I'll be happy to send him over lol!

*******************************************

Winner   Winner   Winner   Winner   Winner

...and now... for the LAST time, I'll announce a NEW WINNER.  I hope that my LOADS of Ribbon Candy wasn't a bad idea : (   It's been hard to give away!

Here ya go...


That's YOU, Margreet!  I KNOW that this time, my candy will be given away and sent to a wonderful home : )  Enjoy Sweetie!!!   Please send me your mailing address ♥

Surprise Candy!
What is your FAVORITE type of Blog Candy - either to give away or WIN!!!

***Please leave a comment on this post ONLY.  I will choose a winner on Friday, September 30.  What is the surprise?  Well... it's a SURPRISE of course lol!

****************************************************
Believe it or not, I have a card!
Have you seen the ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE new images by Sylvia Zet for SCACD?  I mean, really REALLY adorable!!!  Below is one of my faves...  She's called Hope.  She's wearing Pink in honor of Breast Cancer Survivors and in remembrance of those who have ended their battle...  Please accept my heartfelt prayers of hope and healing if you are one of the courageous women currently fighting or have fought this horrible disease. Or maybe your life has been touched by another who has gone through the pain and suffering... You have also gone through pain and suffering, so my heart also goes out to YOU!  There IS hope... I promise!!!

Many of you know that I fought and WON the battle 4 1/2 years ago!  Only by the Grace of God, I tell ya  Jesus truly HEALS!!!  I am forever grateful to Him.  It was a long and ugly road, but I am here to tell you that there IS light at the end of the tunnel.  The darkness will NOT overtake you!  Call out to Jesus... you'll find that He is faithful and will always take care of you : ) 

'Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the Name that is above every Name, that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of God the Father.'    Philippians 2:9-11

This little beauty, Hope, is colored with copics:  E18 E17 E15 E13 E11; E49 E59 E25 E53; RV25 RV23 RV21 RV10 RV00; G28 G21 G40; E50 E00 E25 E53.  The awesome Gold on the hope chest is Gold Glitz Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint.  The more coats you apply, the sparkly-er it gets!  LOVE my Glamour Dust Paints!!!  Susana has a TON of fab colors to choose from... just in case : )

I have defo fallen in LOVE with Hope!  Can one truly fall in love with an image?  I think so, but we are so fickle lol.  Another one comes our way and we are in LOVE with that one!  More Glamour Dust on her wings... this time it's Ice Crystal.   Did ya notice the pink and creme pearls peeking through?  Another absolute fave product I can not do without... I use it all the time - Susana, I hope that you will always carry these amazingly fun Viva Decor Paper Pens!!!  I know that some of you prefer the Pearl Pens, but for some reason, my Paper Pens seem to make the best pearls for me...

Pretty simple as far as design goes...  I wanted the dp (which is Webster Pages from a Triple Pack Collection) to shine through.  I've used my oval and scalloped oval nesties for layering the image paired with a sweet doily.  I don't think I'll ever get tired of doilies - don't you just love em?  I'm also on a Scroll Roll ha ha.  You know by now that it's a Memory Box Die called Elegant Scrollwork.  The beautiful flower resting on the scroll is a Prima flower, but I don't see it in the shop anymore :(

Well...I know that this has been a long post!  I hope that you've been a little bit entertained and a lot inspired : )  Thank you so much for your friendship - it really does mean so much to have you here!  I love you, sweet friends

See you soon with another beauty by Sylvia Zet for SCACD (and a shorter post!)

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~

Another sweet gem! I LOVE how you colored her, especially her hair!!! WOW!! Soooo talented! And yes, we stampers are so fickle, but that's just the way it goes I guess, lol!

I love winning anything, really. But I guess my fav is always embellishments. The more unique the better!

Have a great day!

Rosalee said...

I've never given away blog candy but I have sent surprise racks out to people and I have joined Secret Sister from time to time. My favorite things to send out would have to be my favorite things.
As for receiving, anything is great but my favorites to receive are punches and charms, I'm nuts about both. Thanks for the chance, Lori. Love your card, its fabulous.
Hugs, Rosalee
