Hmm, no response from Pooky

Pooky was the winner of my Easter blog candy, but she has not responded with her mailing address.  So ... Becky, Suzie, Jenna, Bon and Infinity Engraving, whoever responds to THIS post FIRST, will be the winner of my blog candy! Good luck ladies!

Are you my Bouncity Bounce Bloggity Hop candy winner?

Hey everyone! Happy Easter! Hope you are all enjoying this special day surrounded by family and friends! I also hope that you all enjoyed The Pride's Easter blog hop ... aren't my girls amazing? I love how we all have different styles of creating!

On to the winner ... I usually pick the winner of my blog candy, depending on how they answer my question. However, this time it was difficult to choose, so I counted all the ladies who commented on how they would use the flower assortment, then used Random.Org to choose. Here are the ladies who are in the running:

1.  Becky
2.  Suzie
3.  Jenna
4.  Infinity Engraving
5.  Pooky
6.  Bon

And here is who Random.Org chose:  5!  Pooky - please e-mail me your address and I'll get your goodies out to you! I wish I knew how to include the picture of the Random.Org box to show that it really did choose #5! If anyone knows how to do it, please let me know!

Well, I'm off to clean up my craft space since it's a mess after working on my projects for this fun hop! Have a wonderful week everyone and I hope to have a project or two to share very soon! Until next time, take care!

Who is the winner of my St. Patrick's Day candy?

Well, if you're the one who said ...

"Hi Linda! an adorable card with Nobu! makes me want to ink mine up soon!  Love to pop small flowers all around cards... for charms, i have some, but i end up hoarding them cause they are too cute! lol! Have a great weekend! :D"

Then you're the winner! Well, congratulations Mimi - it's you! Please e-mail me your address and I will get your goodies off to you!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter Sunday with family and friends! My next post will let you know who won my Easter candy! Until next time, take care!

Welcome back to The Pride's "Bouncity Bounce Bloggity Hop" Day 2! Are you having fun? Have you gotten some ideas on homemade gifts? I sure hope so! Remember, Elsa is giving away some cool Scrapping Candy so please make sure you bounce/hop along to all our blogs and leave a comment, to be eligible to win.

You should have arrived from Suzie's den, but if you arrived here by chance, please go back to the beginning, to Elsa's den.

On to my project for Day 2. I decided to make a little Easter basket. I've made this one before and I love it for its simplicity. It's a Gina K. Designs pattern and you can check it out here. I hope you get a chance to make it as I think you'll really like it, and you can use the basket for any occasion. As you can see, I didn't fill my basket with the usual Easter goodies. Instead I filled it up for a crafter! I used Bazzill cardstock for the basket and handle and more scraps for the panels. Do you see cute patootie Daba the bunny? I love him! You can check him out here, at the Sister Stamps blog, and get the story on how he came to be.

For the handle, I used some beautiful trim I got from Karla's etsy store and some pearl trim from Wal-Mart.

Here's a close-up of Daba ... isn't he the sweetest?!? I just love him!!!

Here's a close-up of the flowers in my basket. They are all from another flower company called All Natural Accents. You can check them out here.

I'm gonna be giving away an assortment of these flowers (and some other goodies) to one lucky commenter! In order to be eligible, please let me know what kind of project you would use these flowers on. Make it something creative! The best project will be the winner!

Hope you liked my project for Day 2 - I'm very happy with the way it turned out! Thanks for stopping by and please hop on over to Margaret's den. In case you get lost in the wilderness, here is the line up ...

Welcome to The Pride's Bouncity Bounce Bloggity Hop! I am so excited to have you here and want to wish everyone a very Happy and Blessed Easter. Please join "The Pride" on this prowl and be sure you enter each of the dens to see what the ladies have created. We will be bouncity bounce bouncing / hopping for two days - Friday the 6th and Saturday the 7th of April. Be sure to keep an eye at Elsa's den for some cool Scrapping Candy! Also, make sure you bounce/hop along to all our blogs and leave a comment to be eligible to win. 

We hope to inspire you to create and give homemade gifts and cards throughout the year. You should have just left Suzie's den and wandered over to mine. If, however, you arrived here by chance, please go back to the beginning of the hop, to Elsa's den.

On to my project for Day 1:  I decided to make a "Simple and Sassy" card, using one of my newest Sister Stamps, called "Akemi". Sister Stamps has the cutest line of Asian girls and boys! Head on over there and check them out! FYI, Saturday, April 7th, will be Sister Stamps' 7th release! Wow, can't believe how many different stamps have come out already! Keep up the great work, Denise and Jenny, and I can't wait to get my pre-order for Release #7!

Believe it or not, I used all scraps for this card. I'm so proud of myself! I believe the papers are from Bazzill and Doodlebug. I colored Akemi with my Copics, and layered her on top of another piece of scrap cardstock, cut using the nesties lacey squares. Oh yah! I paper pieced her kimono! Woohoo!

Here's a close-up of Daba the bunny ... he's so adorable and will be making an appearance in tomorrow's post!

Here's a close-up of some bling trim I got at LizyJose's etsy shop. Liz has since closed her etsy store but has opened up on Zibbet! You can find her here.

That's it for Day 1 of Just A Few Friends "Bouncity Bounce Bloggity Hop"! Thanks so much for stopping by and please hop on over to Margaret's den to see what she has in store for you!
