~ Thankful Cards ~ and the giveaway winner

hey, hello!! I'm back :) ....... after a long week and a long day today.

The giveaway winners .. I know, I know, but you're going to have to wait till the end for me to say who they are!


first, something I made early in the week.. it came in handy later on when I wanted to write a quick thank-you note. A little cutie-pie cherub and little bits of ribbon and lace (and um, burlap again. pardon me!)


And -- one more thank you card. I need to make more of these; I think I don't tell others enough when I'm thankful for everything they've done for me... (and if I could, I'd send one to each of you!) :) --


**lesson of the day: be grateful**


I'm too tired to talk much more tonight, but I want to share the winners of the giveaway...  We went allll the way to 98 comments, and that was REALLY special!! I didn't know so many of you read my blog! So... since we went way over 50 comments, I picked two winners (random means: putting all the comments into a folder in my email, closing eyes, and scrolling up and down, and clicking at random :D) ...

Barb Nichols 

Betty Bourassa

I'm going to pop an email to you ladies; if you'll reply with your addies I will mail off your goodies early next week. I want to thank all of you for dropping by, and saying your kind words. It makes me feel so fresh after a long day .... who knew that so many of you drop by to visit? You've made me more willing to carry on in my craft journey!
