Love & Care.....and the WINNER IS......

I am happy to announce the winner of my Mining for Memories Red Lake Convention Blog Candy Winner is DRUM ROLL.......

Mary Lou!!!

To enter, convention goers had to post a comment to my blog with the phrase "Mining for Memories"  Mary Lou said "I had a great time at Mining for Memories Convention.  I'm not a newbie any more."
Here are the cards individually.  The entire blog candy package is in my August 16th post.

These first two cards were CASEd from Vicki Burdick.  I changed the colors and placement.  The Perfect Plum, Blush Blossom and Sahara Sand combo came from the Color Coach.  I highly recommend this tool if you have trouble choosing colors for your projects.

This third card was a CASE from another demonstrator, Brandy Cox.  I used her placement of the flowers as my guide for this focal piece.

So thanks so much to those that entered!  I'll be sure to have another Blog Candy event in the near future!!   As always, I'd be happy to help you with ideas and supplies for all your scrap booking and card making projects.

Congratulations Mary Lou!!  Thank you to all those from Mining for Memories Convention 2011 that entered to win.

Butterfly Punch Art

Convention is over, so it's time to share some of the items I had on display at my Stampin' Up! table.

A couple of friends and myself have a new found interest in punch art.  This little gal was created as a birthday card for Lori, one of these friends.  The paper for this first one is from the DSP that is available as a hostess selection, called Cheerful Treat. 

When I brought the first card to show my daughter, my granddaughter wanted to hold it.  I couldn't let her play with it (she's 2!) so I told her I'd make her one.  The background paper is from the now retired Ice Cream Parlor.

Well, my grandson (age 4) was recovering from heart surgery and not well at that time, so I couldn't leave him out, so I made him one too!!

My daughter needed a birthday card for a friend's little girl so...okay...  I'll make one for her too!!

I've got a few more ready to assemble and then I think it's time to move on to the next punch art!

This was a paid tutorial from Kim Score of Paper Punch Addiction.
