Congrats Sabrina!!  You win this FABULOUS Kaisercraft Utopia Kit:

Please contact Sharon at and be sure to put "Blog Hop Winner" in the subject line.

I also have a card to share, yep another circle card!  Have you seen enough of these from me lately?  Well today's Fall To Layout sketch was A CIRCLE card.  So how could I not play along?  heehee! 

My card uses the lovely papers from Webster's Pages, Garden Gala Triple pack.  Can't get enough of these lovely prints.  The ribbon is the Wrinkled ribbon in cream, the thinness of this ribbon makes it perfect to make double bows with!  The perfectly matched Kaiser Pearls are in Blush, Latte and Bliss.
See the stamped border on both sides of the sentiment?  I used a rectangle frame stamp from the JustRite Stampers set, Victorian Nested Frames & Occasions.  Here's what I did with the stamp to get the borders that close together.  I cut the frame at all 4 corners and placed them closer together on the stamping block.  I've cut my stamps before, don't be afraid to do this!!
Because of the nature of JustRite stamps and their stamping blocks, putting the cut pieces back together in the original rectangle is EASY!  See?  Just snap them on and good as new:

That's it for tonight!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!

The Stamp Simply Kaisercraft Utopia KIT can be seen here, along with all other KITS available.
