MMSC44 Pretend Play With Some Cuddly Friends

Hi Everyone~ Welcome to my happy, spring-y blog this morning.  We have been having a taste of "almost" spring temps around here, and it is putting a smile on my face.  I hope that my card today will put a smile on your face. This super cute digi image is available at the M5D Store.  I have an extra little treat for you today.  I have a matching envelope box to match my card today that was made with Priscillastyles envelope kit who also happens to be our super wonderful MMSC sponsor this month  : )
Our MMSC44 weekly Bonus sponsor is.....
*Stamp and Create. Thank you Lacey for your awesome MMSC44 bonus prize. Be sure to check out her store for all the newest releases. They are very cute!!


Lots of pictures to see on this one, but there are details just everywhere.. Outside, inside the envelope...all over the place.  I wanted to share them all with you.



Congrats to our MMM  and MMR winners this week

Thanks for visiting me today, and I hope that you will give the sketch a try this week.  If you feel really inspired, give Priscilla's envelope kits a try too.  They are so easy to use and are great for your thicker cards.  There are several styles to choose from and really do dress up the packaging perfectly. 

Oh, and I don't want to forget to mention...if you would like a chance to be on the one and only, amazing and fun Midnight Madness Design Team, hop over to Priscilla's blog to get all the details on how you might just get your chance at this exciting adventure.  It is a wonderful opportunity.  Go check it out.  You'll be glad you did!

I hope to visit your blogs this week to see what you come up with, and thank you much to those of you who are kind and sweet enough to leave me a comment.  I treasure you very much!  Have a wonderful week!!

Hi Carolyn.

This card is just so sweet. The pink and blue look soo good togheter.

Thank you so much for you comments on my blog. I really appriciate it. It does not take much to be on my greeting card list. All I need is a dat of birth and an adress ;o) Isn't that why we make these cards - to send them to someone who will appriciate them? I would love to send you cards for your birthday or some other day!

Hugs
Gunn
