Your LUCKY winner chosen by is:

Nora Noll of A Creative Touch


Nora – send me an email with your mailing address and store choice and I will get your prize sorted out right away!!!

I will be having another giveaway in a few weeks so stay tuned for that!!

I appreciate you all so much – and I wondered if since you were here you might tell me what you thought of my first Minc. card!

I made it using the Minc. I won from an awesome artist/blogger friend (and someone I really admire) named Payel of BeauMonde Designs

Here it is:


I used gold foil in my Minc with one of the diecuts that comes with it and this is what I came up with!! Embossed background is swirls – not sure who it is by! A Black circle gives the butterfly with the golden wings a place to rest!!

I am linking this card up to the following challenges:

Sweet Sunday Sketch Sketch Challenge # 277


“Just Us Girls” Challenge # 301 Trend Week – use Gold


My Favorite Things Summer School Session 2: Gallon, Quart, Pint 


I used this method in determining my colors – Gallon:White/Quart:Black/Pint:Gold

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – challenge: Anything Goes 


So, whaddaya think? Looks pretty golden, huh??

It was fun and could become addictive!! Oh, no!!! Not another crafty addiction!!

Anyways – I wish you a BEAUTIFUL day!!
