Pay it forward winners!

The winning commenters are:::: DRUM ROLL:




The winning commenters can do their own "Pay it forward" on their blog if they have one. This is supposed to be fun and when it ceases to be fun, then stop, take a breath, step back and begin in your own time. If you can't pay it forward, not to worry, because I know your hearts are paying it forward. Congratulations to the winners. I had my granddaughter pick the winners before leaving for school.
I will send the goodies sometime within two weeks if not sooner. I'll need names and addresses. Hope you enjoy what I made and pass on the hugs and random acts of kindness.

Pay it forward

I seem NOT to have much time lately, but I finally created three separate gift sets. I was lucky enough to be picked on Dawn's Pay it Forward day on her blog. Yes, it's taken me a bit of time, but finally the day has come. But I think I was also given the Pay it Forward from another person too and I'm frightfully sorry, but I did not have the time to pay it forward the first time(and I've forgotten who sent it to me). So this is a two-for-one. Whoever my other wonderful pay it forward person was, please let me know and I'll include you in this "thank you for awarding me the honor" of paying it forward.
If you are interested in playing leave a comment on this post, I’ll draw 3 names from the comments and you can then play “Pay it forward” on your blog. If you want to play along and don’t have a blog, that’s perfectly fine. I know my lovely crafty friends will pay it forward in some way even if not via a blog.
The winning commenters can do their own "Pay it forward" on their blog. I will send the goodies sometime within two weeks of picking the 3 winners. At that time, you will have to give me your home addresses.
Here are the cards and tags I've created for you. I hope you like them. So let anyone interested in playing the game, to come and leave me a comment. I will draw the winners in a week. I'll post the winners here and on the Hero Arts flickr group too.

Caardvark challenge sponsored by hero Arts

I fell in love this new cute Hero Arts set. I had to make a card the same day I purchased this darling set. I can't wait to make more. The little gal is adorable (two dolls in this collection) and I stamped the face with pigtails on a pale tan cardstock, the body with scarf on the wonderful double-sided cardstock (the red vertical panel is the back side of the red and green dotted paper) from "The Paper Garden" in Sacramento, CA. I stamped the snow hat on white cardstock and colored in. I bought "Nailheads" metal stickers by Mark Richard as well as the wonderful new Hero Arts set at "The Stamp Art Shoppe" in Roseville, CA. Both shops are so wonderful, can't say enough about the wonderful service and talent of the owners.

Hope you like this card... it was fun to make.
