SEI Claire Mother's Day card and a little giveaway...

Hello, everyone!!! I hope you all had a fun weekend. I was very busy making things for next week's Hello Thursday and other projects that I have going on at the moment. Not to mention studying for a history exam!

Anyway, this card I made this weekend using some fantastic paper that I got from SEI. Triple love their stuff! This was a very easy throw together because it is just two layers of paper on a cardstock base, ribbon, and some SEI chiplets. SERIOUSLY easy card!



Ok, now for the giveaway......I am going to giveaway a pack of beautiful SEI paper plus matching embellishments this week. All you have to do is follow this blog and leave a comment on this post. So easy!!! I will draw a winner on Monday the 15th.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!!

Melanie,
This card is so cute and delicate. I take care of my mother and she is in a wheelchair. I showed her some of the cards I made today and she thought they were so pretty. I am going to make her a card next. The paper is so pretty. I live in a small town and have to order most of what I get. Keep up the great work.

Great card. Sometimes the cards I think are the easiest turn out to be my favorites! You blog has been on my favorites list for a while, but I didn't start following until today! When I visit a new blog I like I rarely follow-I just add to my favorites list and then blog hop from my list. I suppose I really should take the time to follow more of the blogs on my list.
