Relay For Life Card News and A Card

Hello Ladies,

Sorry I am posting so late.  I have been having a little trouble with Meniere's Disease today.  Hope it doesn't last for long.  Here is a card I colored last week and put together this morning.  The Digital Stamp was free from off the web and now I can't remember where I found it, sorry.

 Paper Playtime is having a contest called "April Showers" where they want you to use an umbrella, I thought this would be perfect for this contest.

Ok, now to talk about the Relay for Life Card Challenge.  I know that you are all anxiously awaiting to hear who won the prize.  BUT I want to wait (to be fair to everyone) to make sure that all of the cards have arrived.  I received a ton of cards on Saturday.

But I want to make sure that all of the cards postmarked by April 6th have arrived.  So I think I will probably announce the winner on Friday?

Ok, here is some big exciting news!  The gals that I do my scrapbooking with saw all of your beautiful cards and they were just overwhelmed!  I am very happy to say that I sold quite a few of your cards to them.  They aren't card makers, they only do scrapbook pages.  Anyway, they got together and donated a NEW PRIZE for me to give to another lucky winner.  So I am going to have a Relay for Life Card contest 2 but everyone that entered the first contest will be eligible to win this prize.

Yes, that is Cricut Best Images of 2010.  Thank you so much to my croppin' buddies for donating this wonderful prize!  Good luck to all of my wonderful friends who have stepped up and donated your cards to this wonderful charity.  At last count we had 123 cards!
