Ellen Hutson over at Simple Dreams wrote about a contest that Karen Lockhart was having. You need to make a 4 x 6 recipe card and use one of her Lockhart stamps. The prize is awesome! It is various food products worth over $100.00! YUM! Debbie Olson srongly encouraged ME to enter....but have you seen HER work? She is stampin royalty for pete's sake...I am peasant material I tell ya! I figured I couldn't compete! Anyway she told me to enter....so who am I to argue with the Queen?
I started with black paper from SU! and had this awesome veggie DP by Joy Hall, Porterfield's Fine Art. I used my Copic markers to color the lettuce dress. Isn't it the cutest stamp? I printed this recipe off the computer. I used my ticket punch and some black Lasting Impressions matte brads. I used my sewing machine and glue dotted my ric rac. (Is this a verb? Dotted?) I had these adorable measuring spoons and tied them with yellow ribbon to the ric rac.
Anyway I mailed this off a few days ago...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I win!
Thanks for all the kind comments....and you will be happy to know I have submitted 2 of my cards to Paper Crafts. I think I will submit my Tuscan Rose card from yesterday....what do I have to lose? My problem is deciding who to submit to? Paper Crafts, Take Ten, Rubber Stamper? Do any of you have any suggestions about this?
And one last thing...many of you have commented on my 2 cutie pie dogs over the last few months....I just wanted to share with you my sad news. My little Pomeranian, Molly was put down on Monday evening. She had stopped eating for 5 days. She was 16 years old and had lived a good life. I was crying like a baby! I remember coming home the night of my wedding 14 years ago in my wedding gown, to her jumpy, little rambunctious self! She was a good little girl! I will miss my Molly Boll.
