Blog Candy Winner (where are you?!?) - a project - and a GCD Toot!

I have a fun"TOOT" tonight :) I received an email from Paige today requesting one of my projects that I made recently using the Artsy Urban line by GCD Studios! It will be in the Simply Handmade Aug/Sept 2010 issue! The email couldn't have come on a better day - this week has just been nuts with all the running! Last week my entire family was sick and you know how far behind you can get when everyone is sick :( Not fun! But we are on the mend and I am almost caught up.

Now that I am about caught up - I have an itch to create something! What are you up to this weekend? Have any fun craft plans? Projects you hope to finish up? I was lucky to receive the new Chip ART tool from GCD Studios toward the end of last week - and as I said earlier having a house full of sickies - I didn't get a chance to really play with my new tool yet - so that is on the top of my list for this weekend! I can't wait to share with you what I think about the tool and of course share the things that I am able to create with it. If you haven't had a chance to check out the tool by GCD - head on over to the GCD Studios blog ( - Heidi shared a demo video this week and the adorable Melody Ross is featured showing off the tool! She has an amazing style and this new chip art tool reflects it!

A few weeks ago I received the "forever young" cartridge from Provo Craft. This is the cartridge I chose from my spotlight in the chirp newsletter recently. This cartridge has so many fun cuts on it - but when I saw the little purses I had to make one. Here's a little purse I made using this cartridge and some Jillibean Soup Pattern papers that I have had for a while now (feels good to use up old stuff)

So I can't get in touch with my blog candy winner (Debbie). So far Debbie hasn't stepped up to claim her prize. Debbie I have tried to contact you - if I don't hear from you in 1 week - I am going to have to draw out another winner :( I hope you will see this posting and step forward to claim your prize this paper wants to feel some love!

Have a great weekend everyone!
