And now for something completely different . . .

All Supplies from Stampin' Up! Stamps: Always. Paper: Bella Rose & Raspberry Tart DSP, Pirouette Pink & Riding Hood Red CS. Ink: Riding Hood Red classic. Accessories: Pretties Kit

First of all . . . THANK YOU!

The Parade of Papers was a huge success . . . thanks to all the great folks who took the time out of their busy weekend to visit those of us participating! I am especially thankful for all of you who left such kind comments . . . those comments made me wish for more hours in the day to STAMP! LOL I also owe a big 'Thanks!' to the other 23 participants with a special 'shout out' to Yapha who did such a good job on coordinating the whole shebang!

Now, you might have just looked at the pictures on my last post BUT if you read carefully, you might have noticed that I have a couple more Manchester DSP projects to share . . . but not today! LOL Today, we need something a bit different! What do you think of this card that uses Raspberry Tart & Bella Rose DSP? It was totally simple, aside from dying the flower, but I think it turned out pretty cute!

ANOTHER thing you might have read in my last post was a mention of blog candy! Did you catch that one? LOL SOOOOOO . . . leave me a comment on THIS post and you will be entered into a drawing for some blog candy. Want TWO chances to win? Add yourself as a Follower of Sparkle Happens and I'll put your name in twice! Unfortunately, I will only be able to mail candy to those in the U.S. - maybe someday I'll be able to afford to include the rest of the world but until then, accept my sincere apologies. The picture to the left shows the assortment of DSP, cardstock, chipboard, and hardware I'll be sending to the lucky winner! I'll draw the name on Friday evening and announce the winner on Saturday, so be sure to comment by 5 PM on Friday!

Thanks Comeka for participating/hosting in the blog hop. I really enjoyed todays card too. So many great papers out there to use!

Thanks too for offering such generous blog candy. This is one of the papers I haven't gotten to play with yet.

I've added myself as a follower but you might also consider offering an email update option on your blog. Some of us find that more useful than using a reader and it works as a reminder to check inspirational blogs as they update.

Thanks again sister stamper - Jean
