Tulips, Babies and a WINNER!

Happy Monday Friends!  I hope you had a good weekend?  We lucked out in the weather yesterday when we were up in Skagit Valley at the tulip fields.  Not all the fields were blooming but it was still a gorgeous site to see!  My little one, well she was more enamored with the mud, but that's OK, she had fun.




In every other picture she has her sucker sticking out of her mouth (awesome plan Daddy- ha!) and bear in hand.





I also want to share a card with you today.  This one I made for Virginia's View Challenge #2 with stencils , SRM Challenge- celebrations and Lawnscaping Challenge of use a new technique.  For my new technique, I used TWO stencils on this.  That means I must get extra credit points for Virginia's challenge right?!  LOL.  First I used modeling paste with my fireworks for the pastel colors and pasted it on white with my star stencil from Balzar Designs.  Then I used my sunburst stencil from Studio Calico to make my rays of stars as I wanted them.  I put the SRM stickers in between the rays with some pink waves and the "happiness is..." followed by the cutie Lawn Fawn stork on the front.  On the inside I stamped "on the way!"  I like the outcome, a good baby card.


One last thing before you go.  I wanted to share the winner of the blog candy I was giving away on this post here.  Using random.org I came up with......
