Thursday with Simon Says Stamp's "Time for Wine" and Mojo Monday Sketch

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are all having a wonderful day and the new year is treating you right.

During my dry spell last month, I entered some contests at a couple blogs and won some prizes. I though I would share them here with you.


The first one I won was from a "A Blog Named Hero." I commented on a card by Beverly, which I LOVE. She was so nice to send me the card as well as some yummy goodies. I cannot wait to sit down and color this stamps and use the fun gold goodies!!


Then I had another wonderful surprise of winning a prize for Uniko Studios blog hop. This is an English stamp company that I drool over. The owner, also a Beverly, sent me these adorable stamps. I will definitely be using these soon as I make my Christmas cards for next year!!


Then I received a nice surprise from Taunya Butler that blogs at Daisies Girl. She sent me that adorable card and some Simon Says Stamps dies. Wasn't that sweet?

Okay, now for a card I created using a Mojo Monday Sketch and my newly used Simon Says Stamp "Time for Wine" stamp and die set.


The sketch #478 was PERFECT to use with the sentiment and images from this SSS set.


As I do with a lot of my stamp sets, I stamped a ton of images and then colored them in all at the same time. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers for all the wine bottle, glass, and leaves on my card.


I used a piece of Heidi Swapp striped paper left over from the card I posted yesterday and some patterned paper from the "Love Notes" collection by We R Memory Keepers that I bought last year. I thought the black and white color scheme was perfect with the purple.


The sentiment was stamped with Paper Trey Ink's "Simply Chartreuse" dye ink, as it matched the leaves perfectly.


When the card was completed, added some sequins randomly around the card.

I am entering this card into A Blog Named Hero's "New to Me" challenge as well as the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge "Start Afresh." Both the paper and the stamp set are things that I have never used before this week.

That is all from me today. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS Thursday!!

Hello Nora and Happy New Year to you and yours. What a wonderful pile of goodies you received - just the thing to spur the mojo when it won't cooperate! I love the black and white with bold pops of colour on your fabulous wine card which will be such a useful and versatile one to have in your stash.

Love your card (how can I not, asks rieslingmama?). The B/W paper and the houses in the BG are perfect to set off that gorgeous purple bottle.
