'F' is for Friend

I'm posting today for The Cutting Cafe, and I'm a little sleep deprived.  Fireworks are legal where I live, and they were going off until the wee hours of the morning all over the neighborhood.  It was a beautiful night, and everyone took advantage of it.  So, today, things are fairly quiet.
Regina, owner of The Cutting Cafe, and mastermind of more creative ideas than I can even think of, recently released the "A-Z Letter Set", or you can buy the letters individually, if you prefer.  Our assignment this time was to use any letter we wanted.  I chose the letter 'F'.  Here's why:

I used the 'F' shaped card to create this for my best friend.  I love to make cards and send them to her -- she's my biggest fan!
Papers are My Mind's Eye Collectable.  The dragonfly is a Cheery Lynn die.  The ribbon is 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon.  It's the new Tie Dye Bundle. The glitter dots are also My Mind's Eye.
Here's a close up of the tag and bow:

The sentiment, also from The Cutting Cafe, is a printable stamp from the Everyday Mini Words set. I used a Creative Memories small tag punch.
I have a giveaway going on, celebrating several events: I wrote my 500th blog post last week, I just reached 400 followers on my blog, and I have over 100 "likes" on my Facebook page, Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  To celebrate all those things,  I'm having a giveaway:  I have some Timeless Twine, some 3 Girl JAM ribbon, a Unity stamp set, a Close To My Heart stamp set, some Pinque Peacock embellishments, a 6x6 paper pad, and various embellishments that I need a home for. I also have two generous sponsors:  DigiStamps4Joy is giving a $10 gift certificate to the store, and The Cutting Cafe is offering any 3 sets.  WOW! If you'd like to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on any of my blog posts between June 27 and July 6.  I'll draw a winner on my birthday.  It's my day, and you get the present!  I'd also love it if you "like" my Facebook page and follow my blog, if you don't already. 
Don't forget to visit the Cutting Cafe blog on July 7 to see what the rest of the design team did with the A-Z letter set.  Leave a comment and you could win 3 sets of your choice from The Cutting Cafe!
