And the winners are....

Hi you all, it's weekend - time to relax and have fun!

First of all I would like to say who won my little giveaway this week.
Drumroll...............
The Moo-Maze album was won by Fröbelsternchen Susi   in Austria and the Circus set is going to
Mo in Bonnie  Scotland. 

I got a bit carried away with pulling names out of the hat, it's just fun, so I pulled out another three who will be getting consolation prizes - which will be surprises - and they are:
Susi, Mo, and Marji should please mail me and send their snail-mail addies.
Congrats to those who won, and I am sorry I could not send each and every one of you a prize!

For Paper Saturdays I would like to share a piece I made yesterday; I think I will use it as the cover for another little book. I used cardboard, partly distressed and painted white for the background. I embossed one side with Utee in white and stamped into it with my script stamp. I added different papers, lace and ribbon as matting for the image, which has been stamped and distressed with vintage photo DI. I completed it with some string, a lace butterfly and some beads.






Here's wishing you all a very happy weekend. Take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!
