You just need to contact me and we will figure this out :)
With my blog still being at its infant stages; I wasn't sure how many people would participate. I was thrilled to get 4 people who left comments. I appreciate them.
I thought it would be fun to make somebody's day by winning this fun gift. I hope it did!

I will be posting a few cards later this week.
Have a happy day tomorrow!

I had no idea I would be so busy this weekend that it wouldn't be until tonight that I would post about the blog candy. I had a great weekend though and had the chance to go to a quilt show called Quilt A Fair in Longmont. It was so much fun and I bought a few patterns, and just a little bit of fabric. I still have a lot from my fabric stash I started about 15 years ago...
Anyhoo, so here's the blog candy: place an order for $25 from Stampin Up for free! I will choose the winner at random on Tuesday night. If you win, you can order from the current catalog and the mini catalog that will start October 1st (I will place the order that day)
What you need to do: leave a comment on this post and tell me what you like or don't like about my blog and what you wish I would do to make it more interesting to you.
How will this work if you win? I will have the item(s) shipped directly to your house.
Can anyone win? This is only open to US residents since (US) Stampin' Up! won't ship outside the US.
What if you'd like to place an order that would add up to more than $25?
I would credit you for $25 and you can pay the difference with PayPal or a check or money order.
Will I need to pay for shipping and tax? No, I will pay for shipping and tax.
So, let me know what you think and I wish you the best! I will announce the winner late Tuesday night!
Have a happy week :)

Splitcoaststampers has a different challenge every day. Wednesdays are sketches and Thursday are called "Ways to use it". It usually features a card/ scrapbooking supply. This week's supply is to use a charm. I used the little heart thinking it would go well with the stamped image.
I also sponged the edges of the Very Vanilla cardstock with Chocolate Chip ink. I didn't sand he pattern paper, that is how it is.
I am sending this card to my best friend that I met 30 some years ago. We met in 3rd grade and have stayed close in spite of the miles that separate us. She is fighting breast cancer at this time. My heart goes out to her. Nathalie, this one's for you :)

So many people in the ward participated. I thought I'd share a few photos. My friend Amy and her daughter Hannah.
Thanks to Wendy for taking a lot of photos during the project. She and Amy were awesome helpers.
Here is President Dunford and brother Lawrence. It was so fun that so many men helped. My husband would tell them: " If you can tie your shoes, you can tie a quilt!" Most of our quilts were tied with the international stitch. We did a few tied with yarn quilts but I'd say 80 % of them were done with the international stitch. They turned out beautifully.
I wish I could show a photo of everyone who helped but I don't want to post a hundred photos!! Thanks again to everyone who helped. These will be sent to Salt Lake City's LDS Humanitarian Center and will be delivered wherever they are needed.
