Wishing You Sunshine -- and a prize winner

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend.  It was cool, cloudy, and off and on rainy here.  I worked yesterday, so the holiday was short, but it was still enjoyable.

I have a tutorial today on All That Stickles, showing how to make your own glitter domes.  To showcase the technique, I made this card:

She seemed like the perfect image for a cool, rainy weekend! I used Kaisercraft Fine & Sunny 6 1/2 inch papers, Sparkle Creations Rainy Day Ruby stamp, Copic Markers, Cryogen paper, Spellbinders dies, Turquoise Stickles (so I can enter this in the current All That Stickles Linky party), and a free sample of ribbon from Ellen Hutson.  The "wishing your sunshine" sentiment is from Joy's Life Pun in the Sun stamp set -- lots of great sentiments on this one!!
I promised you a prize winner.  If you commented on my blog during the Joy's Life Super and Everyday Hero hop this weekend and follow my blog, you are eligible.  I used random.org to pick the winner.  Comment #4 was chosen:  Crafty_ma_am.  Congratulations, Crafty_ma_am!  Please let me know where to send your goodies.  You can leave an email address with a comment here and I'll be in touch.
I also want to let my followers know about some challenges that I am a part in.  I know some of you love challenges and I'm helping with some new, fun ones.  There's the All That Stickles linky party that I mentioned earlier in this post.  The current Stickles color is Turquoise.  If you can spell it, you can use it, LOL!
