Fabulous Floral Fridays - Heartfelt Thanks and a PRIZE

So I decided that I have a lot of floral sets and guess what? I am not using them. I really need to because there was a reason I bought them. So, in an effort to use them more often, each Friday I am going to feature a floral set and a card, maybe two, that I have made with that set. I am really hoping this will help me use them more often and it will inspire you to use your floral sets too!

Here are the cards I made for this week. I will probably only make one each time on a regular basis, but this week I made a set of three simple notecards. I was playing with ribbon on them to decide which one I liked the best.



And because this is my very first week of doing this -- I want to give away a prize. This prize is a good one too! It is a MAKING MEMORIES Photo Cube Kit. It contains 47 pieces including 3 chipboard cubes, 24 patterned papers, 19 rub ons and a yard of ribbon. It is really cool!!!

Okay, so here is what you have to do to win this. I want you to make a card using the featured set of the week -- Heartfelt Thanks. After you have made it -- upload your card to your blog, or SCS or wherever you like to keep your work on the web, and then come back and in the comment section of this post -- post me a link. Then I will go look at all the different creations and for each card you have made, I will enter you in a drawing to win the prize of the week. I figure this is a good way for you to inkspire me back and inkspire each other, while using those much neglected floral stamp sets we all just "must have." Winner will be announced next Friday! Ready, Set, GO! Show me your wonderful creations!!!!

I am off to get groceries for the week . . . I hope to have emails sent out to all of you who ordered monoadhesive today . . . so watch for that -- (although to be fair, it might not be until 11 pm {AZ time} tonight).

Oooh, and tomorrow I am off to a stamp show in Mesa -- any of you AZ girls who read my blog -- keep your eyes peeled and come introduce yourself if you are there while I am! I would love to meet you!

YAY! I am so excited that you girls are going to play along with me! I totally need the moral support and a good reason to dust off these neglected floral sets :)

Hi Amanda,
I have a card ready for you, but I don't have a blog or anyplace on the net that I post creations to. Would it be ok if I scanned it in and emailed it to you? Thanks.

What a great idea to use your sets! :) Love it! I'll see if I can get one made today. I have to stamp some other things too so I should be able to. :)

Hey Amanda, here is my take on your challenge! Thanks for inspiring me. With the basement being finished I've let it clog up my creativity.
