Hi everyone. Well unfortunately I never did hear from Cheryl on the card she won last Wednesday, so I went to random.org and picked another winner. The winner of the card (you can see it HERE in case you've forgotten what it was) is Elaine Allen. Elaine, if you will e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address I'll get this in the mail to you. UPDATE: Cheryl just contacted me and said she's been sick all week. I think the card sounded perfect for her so I'm still mailing it to her and Elaine - I'm making you another card - so still e mail me your address!
Well I do have a card for you today, but I'm really not liking it too much. My boss is having a birthday today and I needed to make a card. I'm not that great with cards for men. Add that to the fact that I have had very little crafting time, and this is the result. The card could have been so much better, but I'm sure it won't make a bit of difference to him anyway.

I used the new Make A Wish Cake image that Robin Willis drew for Squigglefly. I really like the square sentiment and the fact that this image is gender generic.
The shaker piece was an item that I picked up at Archivers. They are from Impression Obsession. You get a package of ten for about $5.00. They come in large and small squares, large and small circles, and one size of ovals. This card is using one of the small squares. They sure make shaker cards quick and simple! Here's what they look like
Now I have to tell you that it wasn't until I was taking the picture of the package that I saw they are self-adhesive! I ran a bead of glue on mine! Guess it'd help if I read the darn instructions! oh well, live and learn!
I hear there was supposed to be a snow storm in Illinois last night, so if you are where there is snow - run outside and build a snowman or make a snow angel! Then, if you can take a picture and send it to me so I can live vicariously thorough you! I want a SNOW DAY!
Well, even if you don't have snow I hope you enjoy your day tremendously and thanks for looking!
