MMSC # 42 and FFTC# 55

I am very honored that the sweet ladies over at MMSC gave me this award for this card! Thank you so much!

This might just be my most feminine card ever. I am quite proud of that. The DP is from Panduro, called "Swirls in Silver" by Vibeke Spigseth. Very beautiful paper! To bad I have coverd it up.... *dah!* I have added some swirls on the sides. I got them in a RAK from my aunt. She has got herself a blog finally. Check it out here and give her some love. Her blog is only a couple of days old.

I have embossed the swirls with Distress embossing (color Brushed Corduroy). A very nice lady let me borrow her pinepunch this weekend. I have wanted this punch for a while, so it was very nice to be able to punch out some pinebranches and see how much I will use it. And I do use it... I really have to get that punch!

The image is one I have printet out. Found the image on the great internet, it is a beautiful image of some white tulips. The sketch is from Midnight Madness of course. I also enter the card for Flourishes Tusday who has a flowerchallenge this week. They have got a new blog - check it out here.

We are doing better in the Olympics. It startet out slow, but now we have 6 gold medals. 3 silvers and 5 bronses. We are very excited about the fancy pants curlingboys. They have made it to the semifinals and we are cheering on them the best we can!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Your nice comments always makes

me smile.

GORGEOUS..I am speachless and am having a hard time getting it out...WOW..I really like this one..it is just so pretty..I could frame this in a vintage frame and hang this in my home I love it so much :) Oh I just wanted to let you know to mark your calendar for March 5th because that is when the Midnight Madness will be doing a huge giveaway. It will be a blog candy style with comment entries only. No card making on this one, but I really do not want our regular players to miss out on the opportunity to win. You will not be sorry you entered. As always, thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenges with us. We really love checking out all our entries work each week.
