Smile! (It’s a Give-away)

Hi everyone!  I hope you’re enjoying the last little bits of 2012!  (I am!)  🙂

Does anyone remember a while back (August) when I mentioned I’d lost my favorite sentiment from this set, Picture Perfect from My Favorite Things?  I bought a new/complete set as I  adore it so.  I never had a chance to open the new set…which is a good thing because four months later, I found the missing sentiment on the other side of my stamp room stuck to a pack of cardstock.  So my carelessness can now be your gain.  I’m giving away this set with some other miscellaneous goodies.  More about that below.  🙂

I think this is the sweetest concept, the little girl holding the frame.  I just love it.

After coloring with Copics (E00, E11, E31, R20, Y21, E33, E35, E40, E41, BG13, W00, W1), I pieced the dress and added a bit of shadow with gray markers.  The sentiment strip was created using Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Flags Layers Die-namics.

On the inside, I stamped my long lost favorite sentiment.  ♥

As a little thank you for visiting my blog, I’m giving away a Picture Perfect stamp set along with Small Scallop Border and Fishtail Banner Die-namics, one yard each of ruffled pink organdy and Blu Raspberry grosgrain, and a 6×6 pad of My Mind’s Eye “Lucky in Love” (as used on my card above).

Please leave a comment on this post.  I’ll select a winner on Friday, January 4th around noon, EST.  (For ease in shipping, give-away available to US residents only.)

Thank you!  ♥  ♥  ♥

p.s.  Come back tomorrow  for another (sponsored) give-away!  Shhhh!

    Hi Michele,

    What a cute card!!! 🙂 My 8-year-old daughter would love that image! Losing the sentiment sounds like something I would do! 😉 But what a GREAT giveaway! My birthday is the 6th, so this would be a wonderful early birthday present (please forget that I said I’m getting TOO old to have birthdays; my kids don’t believe that I’m going to be 29 again anymore either!)!!!!!!!!

    best wishes for you and your family for 2013! 🙂

  53. Oh my! What a fab give-away!!!! Gorgeous card!!! Love the pretty lace border! I had the same thing happen to me! I lost the sugar cone from “here’s the scoop”. It was missing several months…then one day I was reorganizing my 12×12 paper stacks and something fell to the floor!!! I was so excited to have that cone back. These tiny clear stamps have a way of running away and hiding!

  88. Your coloring techniques are amazing!! Beautiful as always!! Thanks for the chance to win.

  89. What a super cute card! I love how you stamped on the inside, too! It’s funny how stamps can go away on vacation (I guess that a downside of the clear ones that they are sticky and hard to spot sometimes! It’s the only kind I can use, though, since I’m allergic to rubber so I try and deal with the runaways with as much patience as I can muster!) Thanks so much for sharing your duplicate and other goodies! I hope you have a year of few runaway stamps and lots of inspiration!
