Blog Candy Winner and New challenge at Freshly Brewed Challenges

Happy Wednesday, everybody!
I hope that all of you are enjoying your week so far!
Wasn't our Fresh Brewed Designs hop fun?

I have a Blog Candy Winner to announce today!
I truly appreciate all of my followers and I want to welcome
all of my newest followers, as well.  
I certainly appreciate that you take time out of your busy schedules to stop by my blog
and leave such sweet comments!
I do try to stop by and visit all of you, but I know that 
I don't visit as often as I would like to.
Working full time doesn't leave me with as much time as I would like to blog and then play in my craft room.

The winner of my lovely YELLOW BLOG CANDY is
who wrote
"Love the butterfly garden you created for her, so pretty! She looks as though she hasn't a care in the world."

Congratulations, Kara!
Please e-mail me at with your mailing address to that I can get your
yellow embellishments in the mail!  ;-)

Today we have a brand new challenge at 
Food or Drink
I made this card using
Fresh Brewed Designs
for my mother's birthday card!
Oh boy.......I noticed that one of the pearls slipped on the
pedestal plate!  Unfortunately, I already gave the card
to my dear mother for her birthday, so I couldn't fix the pearl
and take another picture!   It's bothering me though......
