Submitted Cards + Happy Birthday + Giveaway Winner!

Neither of my two cards I submitted to Paper Crafts Magazine got chosen this time. One was a very last minute impromptu decision anyway, so I'm not too worried about it. This obviously means I can show them to you here now:

The first one I made for the colour challenge. I handmade the flower with tissue paper using only punched heart shapes:

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper: American Crafts | Ric Race | Ribbon: MemrieMarie on Etsy | Button: Basic Grey | Rub-on: American Crafts | Chipboard Frame: Tattered Angels | Dies: Papertrey Ink (Medium Scallop and Leaf) | Tissue Paper (pink) | Rhinestones: KaiserCraft | Glitter: Stampin'Up| Heart Punch: Fiskars

The second card is the anniversary card I made for David:

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Music Sheet: second hand bookstore | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Damask Designs + Heart Prints + A Little Argyle) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy + Vintage Cream) | Rhinestones: My Mind's Eye + Me and My Big Ideas | Ribbon: B*Inspired | Border Punch: Martha Stewart | Label: Maya Road

Today, Jessica, one of my dear Nike friends is celebrating her 40th birthday. Congratulations, Jess... I hope you have a fantastic day.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics | Patterned Paper: Girls Paperie + Jillibean Soup | Ribbon: Webster's | Die: Papertrey Ink (Large Scallop) | Corner Rounder: EK Success | Clear Stamp: Prima Marketing + Papertrey Ink (Enjoy the Ride + Flutterby Friend) | Rhinestones: Prima Marketing | Ink: Staz'On (Timber Brown) + VersaColor + Rangers Distress (Antique Linen)

It was lovely to read all your comments on where you find inspiration and it's amazing to see how important the blog world is nowadays. I heavily depend on them to for inspiration and less and less on magazines. It's funny that we all still would like to be picked to be published though.

Finally all that remains to do is announce the winner of the Papertrey Limited 2010 Edition Stamp set. The winner is:

Congratulations Jolanda, please email me your address at lisettegibbons at hotmail dot com.

Enjoy your weekend!
