Hi everyone! Thank you for the prayers for my sister yesterday. I'm happy to report that she came through her surgery fine! She's still got quite a recovery period ahead of her and re-hab, but she's on her way. She wanted to ask ya'll to keep praying!
I'm also happy to report that my dentist said all I need is a stronger antibiotic and he thinks the tooth is fine and will last me a long time.
We even went out to celebrate my husband's birthday, and I didn't have to cook! I got him a wallet (which he asked for) and put it in a Backyard Burger bag that I decorated like a shirt. Look how cute
I found the directions on Jill Coleman's blog here. It was super easy, and he liked it!
So, with all of that good news, how about a little more? My one year blogaversary was on Sunday, and like all good bloggers I'm offering up some candy to celebrate! Want to see a peek at some of the goodies I'm offering?
There will be more added to this, I just haven't gotten everything out yet. So what do you have to do to win this? Just leave me a comment telling me Happy Blogaversary! It'd be nice if you became a follower or subscribed to my blog but I'm not going to make that a condition. I'll have random.org pick a winner on the 22nd of June.
Okay, let's get to the card I have to show you today. Squigglefly has a challenge on their blog every Monday and yesterday Rhonda's challenge for us is to make something using the colors black and pink and a third color of your choice, plus two brads and two flowers. Well I may have cheated just a little because I used almost every shade of pink I had in my copics!

The image I used is called Floral Frenzy. I just love it! I used green as my third color (I had to color the leaves and stems!), and I used four flower shaped brads. I figured two would qualify as brads and two would qualify as flowers!
I added some glitter to the butterfly trails. Here are the copics I used coloring this
I normally would have colored all of these flowers in multi colors, but the challenge made me stick to the pink pallett and I kind of like it! I liked it so much I decided to do another in a blue pallett!

Notice I used a new EK Success border punch on the side! Which one do you like best?
One more thing before I go - Squigglefly is going to be sponsoring a sheetload of cards next month and they had the design team make some cards for it. The problem is not all of the cards can be used, so they need YOU to go by and vote on the cards that should be submitted. Can you help them out by going here to vote?
Don't forget to comment to win the prize I've got! Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for taking the time to visit me!
