Eye Candy!!! The winners are...

Let's celebrate my one year blogoversary, I came up with the following contest:

Julia contest: Create a gatefold card.
Kathryn contest: Create a unique card using some of patterned paper scrap from a previous card.

These first 3 cards are all created by Yvette. I think I've found a kindred card maker...simply elegant and uses scraps. I love the clean lines of her cards! Check out her other creations here: creatables by Yvette.

This happy thank you is from Kristie Morrison. Krisitie's card meets both challenge requirements! She used scraps AND created a gatefold card. Isn't she clever?! I am so happy to "meet" both Yvette and Kristie via this contest. They are my newest blog friends :)

If you check my blog regularly, you know I have mentioned Lauren of ...all the GOOD blog names were taken... I am amazed by her talent. I am in love with these adorable birds. IMO, you can not have too many flowers or scallops. We started blogging around the same time. I found her blog nearly a year ago...either late June or July. When I don't have time to check (like this weekend) all my favorite blogs, I will at least check to see if Lauren has posted that day :)

And the final entry is by my friend and fellow card-selling partner, Amy of Pickled Paper Designs. Her designs and layering are phenomenal. Like I even have to say that...I mean, look at this baby card!
I know the suspense is killing you (drum roll, please....) but before I announce I have to say THANK YOU ladies, for participating. This is a busy time of year with school ending, summer beginning and I am honored that each of you took the time to enter.
The winner of the Kathryn contest (using scraps) is Yvette !!!
The winner of the Julia contest (gatefold) is lauren!!!
Please e-mail me your addresses! Kristie, that includes you. I would like to send you a little something for participating in the contest.

I LOOOOOVE Amy's card! Great colors, layers, ribbon, everything!

Oh, and I guess we are neighbors (in DC terms.) I used to go to Leesburg almost every weekend to bike the W&OD trail to Purcelville and back. Sometimes when I am in Va I take the long way home so I can cross at the ferry.
