BBTB/GP/People/BlogHop

I HAVE A WINNER:  Congrats to ASHJOY for winning the Rocking Horse Hand Towel. Please email me before August 5 with your name and mailing address  ... Thanks to all for playing along with the blog hop/blog candy.  


It's Monday and we know what that means... Regina has scheduled another BBTB Blog Hop and I so so love these. You can blip from one blog to another to see the designs AND you can sign up for some pretty spiffy blog candy. If you are here, you probably have arrived from Enfys' blog. A true delightful experience! Her work is wonderful, inspirational, and just pure genius in design and ideas.
Here is my card. We were to design from Going Places and we were to use the people cut.
This is just a blank couple holding hands so I had to dress them up. I figured a vacation would be just the ticket...and the ticket would be Hawaii. The vacation dies are from LAB, a fun fun cartridge to work from.


For my blog candy, I found a cute little white hand towel that I embroidered with a rocking
horse. These are not expensive towels but I love to embroidery on them and give as gifts.
Please leave a comment and your name on my blog and I will put you in the draw. Be sure to check back on the draw deadline of August 1st. If you are the winner, then I will ask you to email me with your information so I can mail the towel to you.
Now.... please blip over to Sandi's blog to see her delightful designs and fantastic techniques and ideas. Talk about getting inspired!...Thanks all for stopping by. Have a super day.
