BLOG GIVE AWAY!!!!!!!!!!

Last night my kids had "Parent's Night" at their Kids Club. (Wednesday night Bible school)
I always like to send their teachers a little something during the "holidays" to show my appriciation of them volunteering their time.
So yesterday I whipped up these GREEN bracelets for St.Patty's Day.
I am also going to be making them for their school teachers as well.
It got me to thinking, since I'm going to be making 2 more anyways I may as well make THREE!!
One for each of the teachers and maybe one for YOU!!!
SO with that said...........I decided to make an extra one to give away right here on my blog!!
If you're interested in getting in on maybe grabbing one of these bracelets here is what you will need to do..
1.)Leave a comment ANYWHERE on this blog. You can leave several comments if you like, but your name only will go in one time...however..
2.) If you link this giveaway to your blog and let me know either in a comment or email I will put your name in for the drawing a second time!
The drawing will be on St. Patty's Day. Please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you in case you are the winner.
Good Luck to EVERYONE!

I took the sketch challenge at "Our Creative Corner"

Here is the challenge:
Now for today's challenge. Our Creative Corner's February hostess, Laurie Schmidlin, has created this fantastic sketch for us to work with:

I needed to make a "Thinking of You" card but had no inspiration.
So I decided to go over to "Our Creative Corner" blog and see what their challenge for this week was.

I took a look at their sketch challenge and it seemed simple enough...and it helped get my mojo moving. Of course my card is nothing as elaborate as the cards on their blog or probably the ones that would be entered in their contest (I could only dream to make cards that fantastic) but none the less, it helped get me moving and I had fun making it. And even saved the sketch. This is one I will do again!! And for the most part I was pleased with the final results!

Hogs and Kisses

I made this card for a friend of mine.
The inside says "Hogs and Kisses".
It's hard to see in the photo but I pop dotted all the animals
