Since I'm in Vegas, I thought I would post a little blog candy contest. I have had some luck in this department over the last few days, so it's time to share the wealth...
To be eligible to win, take a guess at what game I like to play here in Sin City. I will randomly draw a winner when I return home and finish laundry. That will most likely be Friday, April 4. I'll leave comments open till Thursday midnight.
Thanks for looking!

Well, since I've been up since 4:30, I'm HUNGRY! Time to go start getting ready for work. I might even have time to run to Starbuck's before I have to be there! Woohoo! But don't be fooled - getting up at 4:30 am will NEVER become a regular habit for me, no matter how much I accomplish.

Anyway, on to the card. The stamp is SU! Lexicon of Love. The polka dot ribbon is from Verve Visual (May Arts), and the flowers are a small punch I have had for a while. I think I got it in the dollar bin at Michael's. For the upper left corner, I punched the flowers in the black panel so the white base shows through. For the lower right corner, I used those punched flowers. I applied Hero Arts rhinestones to the centers. The only other thing I did was tear the black triangle to give a little texture. Easy Peasy! I think it took all of 10 minutes - a record for me.
Thanks for looking!

ALSO, when I got home from work today, what did I see in my craft room?????????? DAYLIGHT! So, after we change the clocks on Saturday night, I might be coming home to crafting without the glaring overhead lights :)
This past weekend I stole a little while to tackle Jen's Sketch For You To Try. Each week, I print off her sketches, and never get around to completing a card for them. I'm not thoroughly pleased with this card, but I think I know how to improve it. I might make a "take 2" this weekend...I used the new SAB Friendship Blooms (again!), and my new Nestabilities scallop circle dies. The tag is from Target, a long time ago. I colored the flowers in by watercoloring with the same ink - Cool Caribbean, Lavendar Lace and Pretty in Pink. I used my 2-way glue pen to add glitter to the flower centers. The background paper is randomly stamped with the flowers also. This is all mounted on a pink base. Again, don't love it, because the images don't pop enough. But there's hope!
Thanks for all the well wishes as I moan about my dizziness! I really am not a whiner and know that my troubles are nothing compared to what some other bloggers are going through right now.
Have a happy Friday and Thanks for looking!
