Happy Earth Day & a Whimsy Haven Winner!

Happy Earth Day 2010!!!!

I wanted to share a couple projects I made in honor of today...first up is some Cutting Cafe Goodness...

I teamed up the Earth Day set with a sneaky peek at a new circles background...nothing is better than black and kraft:)

I decided to add a pop of color...PTI New Leaf, how appropriate...green:)

Next is my card for the latest CPS sketch:


I wanted to play with Lindsay's latest Whimsy Haven, Live Love Life image that she posted yesterday.

You all know how much I adore Cosmo Cricket Early Bird...makes for such a happy card! The red panel is from the Nutmeg line, it is a woodgrain pattern...perfect for Paige's Woodgrain challenge over on the Cards Blog. I 'shined' up the hearts with SU Crystal Effects...

Hopefully you were able to join us yesterday for the Whimsy Haven Blog Hop.

If you didn't know, Whimsy Haven has a blog hop every Wednesday...leave a comment on all of the 'hops' and you might just win a Whimsy Haven digi-set!!!!

Guess what? I get to pick the winner from all the comments that were left on my blog yesterday!!!! Check out the prize'ola:

Yuppers...it's the Journal Card Set!!! One of my Whimsy Haven favorites....LOL..okay, all the sets by Whimsy Haven are my favorites....but seriously.....check out some of my Journaling Card projects HERE.

Okay, drumroll please.....
