Prizes and a card. Lots of winners! Woohoo for you!

First, I can't thank all of my blog readers enough for hopping with myself and my crafty friends this weekend.  It was wonderful for me to read your comments, not just on my blog, but on others also.  Such a great community this is, and I'm in awe to be a part of it.  Thank you to each of you for the part you play in it. 

I'm going to share a card first, 'cause that's what I do, then I'll get to the winners of the blog candy and other prizes.  This card is for a couple of challenges -- Crop Chocolate's weekly challenge, Creative Inspirations "Inspired By Anything Goes" & All That Stickles green challenge.  This is my 52nd challenge in a row that I have entered on  Yup, a year without missing once.  I think there are 3 of us who have done it.  We are each part of the 52'er club.  I do think, though, that I am the only one who has the distinction of entering all 52 times and not once winning the weekly random drawing for cropcredits to be used at the site.  Oh well.  It's for the challenge, right?  Well, back to the challenge.  This week's CC theme is "Celebrate" because it's also their 4th anniversary.  We were challenged to make a step card, so here's what I came up with:

I used My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly a Kite paper, Echo Park Splash card stock for the base, Pick your Plum baker's twine, Indian Corn Blue ink from Close To My Heart, Green Stickles on the cupcake and one balloon, Creative Inspirations paints in Tickled Pink and Winter Frost. I used 2 Unity stamp sets -- "Balloons to You" Itty Bitty (WIB-336) and "Sweet Celebration Birthday" (Bella Blvd).

And now, on to the winners of the blog candy and prizes. 

I used to choose all the winners.  The easiest one was the blog candy from my blog.

Random chose #16.  And that is Sheri Marek.  Now, for those of you not familiar with this name, Sheri is my BFF.  She moved across the state a couple years ago, but we've still stayed very close.  So, with this hop themed "Celebrate Friendship", is being a little spooky choosing Sheri for this prize.  Plus, I have some Unity stamps to send her from an order we split.  So, here it all comes, Sheri.  Don't bother to send your address.  I know it by heart!

On to the other winners.  There were 19 blogs on the hop, so I had first pick which blog the prize was coming from, then which comment from the blog.  Here's the results.  Are you ready?

Phew!  See you throughout the week!
