Stamping Royalty 2013 Blog Hop and prizes!

 
I'm so excited for this post to go live!  I still remember the day (April 19th), where I was (at work), and my reaction (no way!!) of when I got THE email.  Yes, THE email from Holly Anderson that I was a winner of Paper Crafts magazine’s 2013 Stamping Royalty Card Contest!  I won in the Birthday category and you will be able to see it in the Nov/Dec. issue of Paper Crafts magazine!!!
Let me say that since I was at work, I'm not to have my cell phone with me but that day, I had kept it in my pocket.  I was so glad that I had!  I was on cloud 9 the rest of the afternoon!!  Thank you so much Paper Crafts Magazine!!  I am so very honored to be "royalty"!!
 
 
 
 
That brings me to my post today.......I'm joining in the 2013 Stamping Royalty Blog Hop with all the other winners in all the categories!!!  You are in for a fabulous blog hop!  You should have arrived from the talented Pamela Ho's blog but if not here is the Stamping Royalty list:

Paper Crafts Connection 
 
We decided for our blog hop to make a card in one of the 5 Stamping Royalty categories (Birthday, Christmas/Season's Greetings, Hello/Thinking of you, Love, and Thank You). My card today is a recreation of a similar card I sent in for the "Thinking of You" category for Stamping Royalty except here I jazzed up my original and changed the sentiment to "Thank You".  Can you guess what set I used?  My personal favorite set right now:  Fresh Cut Florals from Wplus9.
 
Thank you  
 
Now for the prize I'm offering up!  Since I am very blessed to be on the Lil' Inker Designs DT, I thought I'd offer the Rainbows and Clouds Stamps and Dies!!!  Let me say that these clouds dies are my most used cloud dies EVER!!!  I love the stitching that sets them apart from so many others.
Thank you Laura for sponsoring Stamping Royalty this year!!!
