Basic Grey challenges: Challenge 37 A Sketch

Hi there!

And welcome to another Basic Grey Challenges challenge :)

Oh yeah... knew this for quite a while already and am happy to share that I will be taking part of the designteam from now on *whoowhoo!!*
As a BasicGrey addict it's a fab thing, totally love their papers, embellishments, etc. etc. Have some favorite lines and am happy to share them along the way :) Even though this challengeblog has nothing to do with BasicGrey, besides sharing our creations made with BasicGrey elements, we've got fab sponsors!!

Anyway...back to the challenge...
Heather has made a great sketch we all used for making our cards and this is the card I made with the sketch:

I used the Euphoria-paperpad which, I think, is just perfect to get that flower-powervibe this image has all over. The image is from Spesch Stamps, another DT I'm in and you can find it overhere.

I just loooooooove Spesch Stamps' stamps, as I think they're really cute and happy! I loooooooove being happy!!

Anyways... please join me and the other DT-members at the BasicGrey Challengesblog for more inspiration and we would really love to have you joining us this round :)

Thanks for coming over and see you again :)

Winners Valentine's Day MEGA Blog Hop

Hi there!

It's time to announce the winners of the Valentine's Day MEGA BlogHop :)

But I really want to start with saying a big THANK YOU to all of you who made this MEGA hop a real succes: the people who created all those pieces of art, the fab sponsors and you.. the people that hopped along the way!

Also want to say THANK YOU for all the nice and awesome comments I received during the hop.
Yes, it was huge to make, took me several hours, but I just soooo enjoyed making this piece! Really love it and when other people also love it, it's really nice to hear :)

Anyways... you're here for the winners, right??!!

I got this from Taylor's blog, you should contact her as well... thanks!! :)

It's time to announce the winners from the amazing blog hop this week! First I'd like to thank everyone who played along with us - the ladies who took the time to contribute a project for the hop, the amazing people who left supportive and encouraging comments on SO many blogs, and last but NOT least our generous sponsors! I'm so thrilled that my little nugget of an idea turned into such a virtual love-fest :)

Here's how this worked: I made a list of all the participants, in no particular order. I then went to and asked for 20 numbers*, to give me the blogs to draw winners from. It gave me a couple of multiples, to for those numbers I had my 5 year old give me a number off the top of her head (it took me awhile to explain that any number above 57 was not helpful - she really wanted me to pick something in the millions range). Those numbers determined which participant's blogs would have a prize winning comment. And then I ask each of those people to use to select a winning comment. If that person was unavailable, I did it for them.

If your name is on this list, please use the "Email Me" button at the top of my blog to send me a note. In the Subject line, please put: Valentine's Day Hop Winner. In the email, include your contact info, and what prize you've won. Some prizes will be mailed directly to you from the sponsors, some will be emailed to you (in the case of digis). And please be aware, I'm away from my computer Friday, so you might not hear from me right away. I'm going to give everyone until Sunday night at 6:00 PM EST to claim their prizes, and then I'll draw new winners. That's just over 48 hours :)

Ok, here's the official winner's list (in no particular order)!
