Friday Card Giveaway!

It has been a very hectic week for me and I am just now getting back into the swing of things after being gone all week receiving some extra special mortgage training from some very wonderful ladies that took time out of their busy schedules to train me, show me some sights of their darling little city, and take me out to a couple of really fun little spots for lunch. So Martha, Sue, and Dawn . . . . if you are reading this . . . . thank you so much for everything this week. I had a lot of fun and I think I learned a lot too.

So here is the card I have selected for our Friday card giveaway. I made this card with my brand new SU Illuminations stamp set. The minute I saw this set in the new catalog last month . . . I just knew I had to have it. The base of the card is SU's Blue Bayou and the designer paper is Basic Grey's "Periphery". The green ribbon goes perfectly with the paper, but it doesn't photograph like that. The Cherish part is stamped and cut out and then stamped again and only the C is cut out and put on a stamping dimensional. The antique brass filigree brad is from the En Fuego Collection of Chiquita Charms from Imaginisce.

It feels great to be home again with Willow and Izzy and I can't wait to have a weekend of stamping. I hope everyone had a great week and I thank you so much for stopping by.

Absolutely gorgeous, Pegi! Might be my new favorite ... the Crate Cowgirl Best of Cluck has been hard to top :-)

I love your creations. We share the same tastes in color. I just wish I was as good a designer as you are. I'd love to have a Pegi original.

It wasnt until I enlarged the card that I saw the ribbon was green-smaller it looks more brown or golden brown. pretty-has a Baroque look to it.
