time for a follower prize...or two

yesterday was the 5th, so i have drawn two names from all you lovely blog followers out there...one from the google peeps, and one from the facebook peeps. congrats—one of my handmade greeting cards is coming your way!!

ivolina from bulgaria
dianna from idaho

here are the cards i made today at an all-day cardmaking event at mainely stamping. i went with my good friend glenna. they had little stations all throughout the store, each with a designed card sample and pre-cut card pieces to assemble. of course, me being me, i didn't follow any of the rules...i mixed it up and distressed and inked and blinged things just the way i like!

this was my first time at this store, what a sweet place! the staff was very friendly. i bought some fabulous large background texture stamps that will be really fun for collages, including a stamp with my very favorite picasso quote:

"art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life"
