Antique Floral Frog Lucky Winner

Good morning everyone.  It's been an incredible weekend.  I got to visit my dear friend, Lynn, down at the hospital.  Her daughter, Rebecca, is the one who fell from a second-story window this past Tuesday, and was left paralyzed.  Well, Rebecca is doing as well as can be expected (maybe even better than that) because God is in control, prayers are being said for her, and we all trust that God has great plans for her life.  Thanks for your prayers, and for those of you who have offered to send her a card.  Please let me know if you would like the address to send her a get well card.

Today is the big day for my antique floral frog drawing.  I used to do the draw, and couldn't figure out how to copy and paste the entire box, but I did the best I could.

The lucky winner is CraftyShana (Shana Walker) who said......"I really like your blog, and just became a new follower.  I've been wanting a floral frog for a long time.  Thanks for a chance to win.  I will be back to check your blog all the time - it's great.  Thanks, Shana."
Congratulations, Shana.  Please contact me with your mailing address by the end of October, and I will mail you the antique floral frog.  I hope you will love it as much as I love using mine.

I made this little birthday card for a friend of mine, and I wanted to share it with all of you.  I'm entering it in the challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ.  I absolutely LOVE their blog and challenges.  Each week, they give a brief devotional about the challenge.  This week it speaks about our burdens.  We all have them; but what a tremendous blessing to know that Jesus has told us to cast our burdens upon Him because He cares for us.  We aren't expected to carry them on our own.  What a relief. - TWOS

This challenge asked us to do everything in TWOS - to used TWO of everything.  I used two patterned papers, two vintage items, two chipboard elements, two ribbons/trims, two sticker elements, two rub-ons, and two flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you all have a blessed week.
