Congratulations on reaching a milestone. How sweet of you to share your goodies with us! Your style and your designers are my style of stamping so I gleam a lot of awesome ideas from your blog.

How time does fly! Thank you for the chance to win some great goodies, and thank you for sharing your creations - they are motivating.

 Congrats to Shirley and Barbara!!!  Please send me an email with your address info to and I'll get your box out to you right away.  You will have until Tuesday morning to contact me.

 I also have a card to share.  My card uses one of the Imperial Gold set of dies, Gold Rounds One.  These dies are special because they don't cut out the shape themselves, they are designed to be combined with the basic shapes that do the cutting.  These dies have patterns that both emboss and DEboss.
Here's the Gold Rounds One set:
  For my circle ring, I inked up the Gold die #5 with pink ink and then embossed it into a precut white cardstock ring.  Here's how it turned out.
 My flower was make from the Create-a-Rose set.  You can see a step out tutorial on how I made the rose on this blog post.  Or there are complete PDF instructions on Spellbinders web page on the Create-a-Rose page.  I used the Floral Flourishes set for the leaf flourish details.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here's a close up picture of the rose and circle detail.
