Almost a Winner

Hello Blog friends, welcome to my little corner of Blogland once again.  Thank you for taking the time to pop into see me as often as you do,  I really appreciate it.  Welcome to any one who has come to visit for the first time, great to have you here.  If you have time please leave a little comment that way I can link back to see what you get up to.
Elaine was here last night, she has been busy phoning all the people who have asked to rent her space for "Crafting Classes".  She has set up a meeting for Tuesday and says she needs me there.  I will be doing a few Card Making Classes, it will just be fitting them all in the Diary.   Elaine has a fantastic space, a fair amount of daylight but also loads of electric light.   She wants to get as many classes up and running A.S.A.P. she is paying rent on the space so any classes will help supplement that.  

My Card for today was "Almost a Winner" it came second in the Mothers Day Competition in the Making Cards Magazine.  The prizes are from Stamping Up I have won Second Prize I am so delighted.  Do not know what I have won but the fact I have won something makes me happy.  I have posted this card before when I entered it into the  "Mothers Day"  challenge at  In The Pink.

Base card is pre-scored 8x8 scalloped edged card
Two shades of pink Core-Denations card stock for matting and layering
Stripped and Floral papers from a Tilda Paper Stack

Roses made using the Tilda Papers and SB Blossom Five Die
Leaves SB Foliage and Crealies Dies
Tag Cut using SB Tags Die a pearl from my stash
Organza Ribbon from my Ribbon Box

 Making Cards do not inform you that you have won.   I did not know till I opened the Magazine when it came in the post at lunch time.   I entered the competition 2 years ago, I came in second then as well.  Might enter next year and see where that takes me. 

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by
