Well.......I did it....

Because of your support,
your kindness,
your votes.....
I WON the Favecrafts contest!
I am so excited and thankful!
I feel so blessed!
I can't thank you all enough. This past week has made me feel so good.....and this was definitely the icing on the cake! Please pop over to Favecrafts if you get a chance!

I also wanted to share one of my favorite projects that I created during my time as a Dirty Dozen gal over at Splitcoast Stampers.
It is a picnic basket shaped card cut from my Silhouette.
Each individual rectangle was colored using Copic markers.  Each one was adhered to the basket with dimensional foam circles.  I love the depth that it gave the basket!
The flowers are also from Silhouette.  I layered them and added Flower Soft to their centers. 
The sentiment is from My Craft Spot stamps.  
I added a few leaves, rustic ribbon, and a bit of twine. 
I used a piece of fabric to lay over the side of the basket. 
The ants were given a healthy dose of glossy accents and adhered to the basket. 
I have a weekend ahead of me full of wine tasting, good food, crafting, and good friends!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Thank you for stopping by!
