And the winner is......!!!
What a wonderful experience it was participating in my first Blog Hop. I met so many wonderful people, and picked up some great ideas/inspiration as we head into this holiday season. Thank you, to all who stopped by at CardMonkey to check out my cards, and my joy in making them.

I am tickled that so many fellow crafters have chosen to "Follow" my blog too! I consider myself the biggest winner here, but ...

I do have blog candy to give away!! Tonight, the random drawing for the Free (Tah-dah!!) custom cozy cover for your Cricut Expression, in a color combo of your choice, embroidered with the name of your choice is........

(drumroll, please)...

JOSIE0602 (Tracy)!!!

Tracy, I will send you an e-mail as soon as I post this to my blog, and hope you will let me know what colors you'd like me to make your cover, etc.

For those who didn't win the blog candy this time, stay tuned ... I'll be offering more covers, and different candy from time to time. 'Tis better to give than receive, right!!? And I have been blessed just by having you here.
OK, for those wanting to see another card, here's a relative quickie that I made recently. Here is a partridge in a pear (??) tree, cut ... if I recall right (which isn't always or even often!) ... with Cricut Christmas Card cartridge. The tree was cut in brown.
To make this interesting with mixed media, I fussy-cut the partridge out of an old gold rib knit fabric, like that found in a recycled holiday sweater. I cut the body of the bird from the ribbing going in the horizontal direction, and the wing was cut and glued over it (fabric glue) in the vertical direction. The delicate antennae was glued in place using gold metallic Stickles.
Have you ever tried mixed media like this -- fabric or something else on your cards? Tell me about it! Or better yet, show me!
Thank you again for all of the Blog Candy participants. Stay tuned!!

I was just going through reading all the blogs I follow this morning and found your post....thank you so much! I am so excited to win this cover! My 2 year old grandson loves to go to my craft room and open my machine up and push the buttons when no one is in there so maybe this will make him forget it is there! LOL
