{Paper Smooches} Love Your Joyful Spirit + Season's Givings Blog Hop Winner


Hello, I hope you're all enjoying this wonderful weekend! Some of you may already know this but I've had a broken rib for a week now. It's extremely painful and I've been trying not to do too much but with a family to manage and all this crafting to do (haha), it's a little difficult! I'm doing my best to find a balance and catch up after the holidays which was filled with way too many illnesses.


Today's card features more sneak peeks from Paper Smooches! Everything you see here will be available on February 1st. I used another frame die called Duo Die 3 cut from map paper and stamped inside it with a sentiment from Spiritual Sampler which Jennifer McGuire is also showcasing today. Be sure to check out her blog for more sneak peeks and comment there for a chance to win some Paper Smooches goodies! I masked off the 'I love' from the original sentiment in order to place the Love Word Die around it. Then I embellished the frame with a butterfly die from Butterflies 1 Dies. Yes, these dies coordinate with Flap Happy!

And, finally, I'd like to announce my winner from the Season's Givings Blog Hop on Tuesday. I used Random.org to choose my winner and that lucky lady is:



Congratulations, Verna! Please email me with your mailing address so I can send you your prize. If I don't hear from you by January 11th at 11:59 p.m. EST, I will choose another winner to be announced on January 12th.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll see you back here soon.

I like your choice of the map paper for the die-cut "background" and replacing the stamped "love" with the die-cut word was a great idea.

Michelle said...
