Friends With Flair, Giveaway Winners and new Design Team Announced

If you're looking for the 3 Girl JAM Holiday Hop, please go HERE, or just scroll down.
Happy Friday, everyone!  It's been a long, busy week for me.  By the time today is over, I will have 50 hours in at work. Ugh! Next week will be better, though.  Both my husband and I are taking Monday and Tuesday off to celebrate our 30th(!) wedding anniversary.  I may do nothing but sleep!
I made this card a couple weeks ago and saved it until today.  I knew I'd be too busy this week to have any time to create.  It's a new card design for me, called a flip swing card.  What do you think? 
 
 
If you want to try one yourself, I cut it out on my Silhouette, using this file I found in the Silhouette Online Store. Then, I used a couple different Unity stamps on the front of the card: "Gingham Christmas Greetings" and "naughty.nice.not sure".  I used ink from an ink pad and a water pen to get the watercolor effect on the holly and berries.
And, here's the inside, "flipped" part:
 
 
I used a Close To My Heart image and sentiment stamp inside, and more watercolor painting on the bird, then dressing the bird up with some Stickles and a Viva Décor Pearl pen.  After all, it's Christmas, and he needs to sparkle and shine! I also paper pieced his hat to give him some more dimension.
First, my design team announcement.  I've been just waiting to spill the beans on this one! I made the 2014 Timeless Twine Design Team!  I can't wait!  The chance to play with twine for a year! And with some really talented gals! Yeah!
And now, to announce the giveaway winners!  I did it, I did it! I made it to 300 followers! To celebrate, I chose 3 winners, one from each of my 3 posts last weekend (2 Friday, 1 Sunday).  Using Random.org, here are the 3 winners and their prizes:
JP Scraps -- grab bag of Unity Stamps, and because of my recent DT success, some Timeless Twine.
Donna K -- Unity Stamps, Timeless Twine, and 3 Girl JAM ribbon
Iris --  blog candy of 6x6 paper, stamps, ribbon, twine, embellishments, and whatever else I throw in. 
Congrats, winners!  Please contact me with your addresses and I'll get your things in the mail ASAP.
I'm linking up early and heading to work for a 12 hour day.  Wish me luck!
