Enormous apologies to all. First, the contest is still on. Second, most of you posted a link to your SCS gallery, but the link does not work because it is too short. Almost all of you posted an identical link that goes no where -- ditto to your blog links. I do not understand why and I just spend almost an hour trying to see your cards. I, too, am very frustrated and am pondering a solution that will not take either of us enormous time. The only thing I can think of is to ask each of you to email me a copy of the picture of your card. No other details will be necessary except your NAME!! I will not use your email for any reason and will only post your name if you are a winner! I had NO idea that this would turn into the hassle that it has turned into. I started the contest with only good intentions and I've learned a valuable lesson -- don't do this again!!! I know that many of you will not see this post until after the original deadline. Sooo --- I am extending the contest until this Sunday evening. This gives each of you a chance to check the blog over the weekend and see the revised rules. Please email your photo to me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks. ps. Here's a card I made today. There is a long story behind this card and who inspired it but I'll save that for another day. How I made this card: First, I cleaned all the junk off my craft table(s)!! Then, I tried a million different ways to use a transparency and the cuttlebug and white ink before I came up with this idea! I ran a transparency sheet through the A2 Stylized Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. Then I took some White Opaque Staz On reinker and put a few drops on a paper towel and rubbed it all over the transparency. I took a clean paper towel and rubbed off a lot of the ink, and quickly took a Q-Tip spritzed with water and a little tiny bit of dishsoap and rubbed over the transparency until I removed most of the ink, except for ink on the design itself. I put a piece of SU Real Red cardstock through my Xyron and adhered the transparency and wrapped the black and white polka dot ribbon around it. I made a ribbon holder from more red cardstock that I cut with the ribbon slider die and the Cuttlebug. Then, I used an SU Black Marker to ink the word "sweet" from the SU Sweet on You set and stamped it onto the slider. As much as I love that slider die, I would prefer a punch because it is difficult to get the words centered on this slider. I doodled a little Black marker and White Gel Pen on the slide and added a couple of Amuse Creative Candy mini dot twinkle stickers -- purchased from Ellen Hutson's store, of course!! Finally, I went wild with May Arts organdy polka dot ribbon that I purchased from Starlitstudio.
