Love Is Like A Butterfly

Hello, ladies!
I started this post on Friday, but had to leave
before I was finished, and the rest of the weekend
was so crazy busy, I never got back to it.
Sorry about that!

I'll get to the winners of last week's
happy mail in just a sec.
First, here's another card I made with the
Echo Park "Be Mine" collection.
The first one was my Design Team sample
for the latest Lawnscaping Challenge.
You still have three days to participate,
if you haven't yet!

No stamping involved here.
The sentiment was part of the collection pack.
Thta was my first time ever ordering a whole
collection pack and it was great!
Lots of pieces you can coordinate with.
Just look at all those gorgeous strips of paper!
I couldn't choose which ones to use,
so I decided to incorporate them all!

Okay, so onto the happy mail winners!
As I said, I picked one winner from each blog,
and they were Cheryl and Laurel.
Ladies, please email your snail mail addresses
to penciledwhimsies at gmail dot com.

As for the rest of you, don't worry if you didn't win.
Happy mail will become a staple here at my blog,
with the next one being a sample of the
collection pack I used on todays card.
So stay tuned for that! I won't say exactly when
 it will be, but it won't be too long.

If you're not familiar with my happy mail giveaways,
they are open to any of my blog follwers,
and come with one small request:
please make a card with some of the supplies
and then link back here and let me know
so I can see it and so that other people can
find out and participate in happy mail!

Thank you all so much for making my
first guest blogging stint such a pleasure!
You ladies rock my world!
