BBTB/GS/Priceless




I HAVE A WINNER: JAN FARNWORTH...please email me with your addie so I can make arrangements to mail the Apple dish towels. Congrats to Jan, and to each of you who played along, I thank you so much. I appreciated each visit...
Well it's fun fun fun time because Regina lets us do a blog hop each month end. I so enjoy these and I hope you do as well.
We were asked to use Cricut's Graphically Speaking cart and to design with the "priceless" die. I was at a loss on how to even make this work and then I ran across this treasured photograph of my son at age 16, all spiffied up for his first high school prom. He looked so handsome in his tux and that blue cumberband ... so I took the photo and made it part of a greeting card.
It is a tri-fold card with the photo on the left, down the center is "always remember" cut out from some scrap bin papers. I've used Nesties on the right side of the card and added the words "first prom" just above the Priceless cut. I love the way this card turned out and I've mailed it to my 40 year old son to chuckle over.

Leave a comment and you will be put into a drawing for the two little handtowels that I have embroideried with an apple.. One towel is a smaller size..I will draw the winner on October 6, so check back after 4:00 AZ time that day. If you are the winner I will ask you to email me so I can make arrangements to mail the towels to you. If I do not hear from the winner by October 9, I will draw a new name. Now, you must blog hop to Michelle's blog and see her wonderful work.
