New Gadget - Top Follower

Wow! This month's challenge continues to grow with entries and I am personally finding this very encouraging and exciting. I am so grateful to everyone that is supporting my challenges and following my blog. I've decided to add another opportunity to win on my blog and I am calling it my "Top Follower." 

In the right sidebar I have added a gadget that will calculate how many times you visit my blog. The only catch is that you must sign in, in order for your visit to count.  The gadget will calculate and show me my top ten followers.  Then at random times through the year I will award a "top follower" prize in addition to any other prize I may be hosting at the time.

So don't forget to sign in when you visit my blog and get counted....just another way to encourage you to visit me more often.  Go ahead and ignore my name; it was necessary to make sure this gadget thingy was working correctly.  

The card I am sharing today, I created to enter in three challenges but for the life of me I can't find my list of challenges.  I guess it was the excitement of my own challenge being such a success that I have failed to remember what I did with my list. I sure hope I can find that list because starting over is just not going to happen.  I do remember that one challenge was to use more than one die and one had to do with using the color white.

Oh well this is what happens when your brain decides to engage in direct competition with its body in seeing which one can go in the wrong direction the fastest. I'm tired of trying to redirect them...to much work...I would much rather craft, so here's my card.


















I created this card using some gold cardstock by Recollections and basic white cardstock by ColorBok (I think thats how you spell it). Then it was using a corner die by Marianne.  I think this particular die is in the Anja collection. Its best to have two of the corner dies so that when you cut one side the other side is not flatten by your machine.  If you can get the whole collection I would say go ahead and do, its well worth it.

I also used Spellbinders Metal Tags dies which were released last year I think right before Christmas.  I love the motifs, dollies and accents that were released and it is my intent to one day have them all...notice I said one day...future not determined. I used a doily to cut a solid white doily and then layered that with a gold motif and then I cut in gold a tag from the metal tags collection.














I then decided to decorate my inside using the same gold and white theme. The border is from the motif collection that I cut and used both the negative and positive ends from each cut. Next I used the Metal Tags collection to add the sentiment "....just because" from Hampton Art clear stamps.  Then I printed my verse on my computer and layered it on a piece of leftover gold cardstock.

That's pretty much the recipe for my card and the end of this post.  The last thing I have to do is figure out what challenges I intended to enter this card before I run out of time.  Based on my past the odds definitely aren't in my favor, nope things are not looking good from my end. 

Oh here is an afterthought for you.  There are 3 days left over at My Enchanted Paper Creations to win a Saturated Canary digi image.  Currently I am winning...yipee because I don't think anyone is aware of the challenge, so if you enter, your chances of winning are pretty good at the moment.  Just thought I would share with my friends.

Okay lets see is there anything else........yep...actually there is....I may be adding another winner to the list of winners.  If my entries reach 200 I will add another winner and when I reach 300 followers I will have some blog candy up for grabs.  Now I think I am finished with all the gabbing.  Good bye ladies...have a great day or evening where-ever you are.
