My Stampin' Up! Classes

1,300 posts, blog candy, and Playful Polka Dots Simply Scrappin' Kit for sketch challenge...

I've got a few things to celebrate today - 1) This is my 1,300th blog post (nearing 4 years of blogging); 2) I actually got a challenge done this week; and 3) I am getting a post up in time for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!

First, the blog candy: Leave me a lovely comment on this post and you could receive a pack of pearls, Sweet Summer and Cute by the Inch stamp sets, and Pink Pirouette grosgrain ribbon. I'd love to have you become a Follower too, if you're not already. It's that simple.


Second (and third, since this is what's on my desk) is my submission for the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge this week. I used textured Old Olive card stock, with dsp from the Playful Polka Dots Simply Scrappin' Kit (coming up May 1 in the Summer Mini Catalog). The sentiment is from Trendy Trees. I added dimensionals under the yellow flower, with a jumbo brad, and a bow of Peach Parfait ribbon. You can see the sketch at the bottom.


That's it for me! Don't forget to leave a comment with your email address in it. I'll have one of my kids choose a name at random on Friday night, and will post the winner this weekend! Thanks!


An additional note: I didn't get my card done in time for the sketch challenge. The linky is closed. *sigh*

That is me - do a card or something and when I get there I have missed the closing time! Still, you made a lovely card for it and I love the combination of the green and the orange on the first card. Likewise the deep pink really zings from the black squares.
Thanks for sharing and congrats on your fantastic number of blogs. Must go and see how many I have done - nowhere near that number I might add!
