Time for a Giveaway!!

Happy Friday everyone and happy first day of fall (or spring, depending on where in the world you live :) Gosh, this year is flying by so fast!! It will be Christmas before we know it :) I wanted to share some photos of the beautiful hummingbirds that have spent the summer here. I've taken a ton of pictures, but I haven't had the chance to look at most of them.



I just realized that I didn't process any of the photos of hummers with gorgeous ruby throats. I'll post them soon.


We had an incredible amount of hummers this summer. This isn't the greatest video...it was taken through a screen, but this is just one of four feeders and you can see how many there are (you can really see them if you click full screen). It was a swarm :)


I am going away on vacation today and I won't be able to visit you while I'm gone. I don't want you to forget me, so how about a giveaway??!!


I have not one giveaway, but two!! One person will win a Lemoncrft Fresh Summer set of 6x6 paper, ephemera cards and buttons, and one will win a Lemoncraft Christmas Carols set of 6x6 paper, ephemera cards and buttons. I'm not going to make you jump through hoops. All you have to do is:
  • Pop this picture on your sidebar or share it on social media
  • Enter your name in the Linky below
That's it!! I will select winners in one month, October 21. I will ship anywhere in the world :)

I have a few posts scheduled while I'm away. I'll stop in to see you all when I get back!! Have a wonderful last few days of September/first of October!! I'll miss you!! Big hugs :)

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!!

If you play along, you could win one of two $10 gift certificates to shop at Scrapy Land.


For my projects, I wanted to make a card for a dear friend to let her know I was thinking of her :) I used papers from Maja Designs Vintage Romance stack.


Because I can never just make one card, I made two :) The circular window was cut with an Impression Obsession Circle Shaker Frame die. The nature scene inside was created with Memory Box Tree Branch Circle and Tattered Lace Panoramic Bridge dies.


Hello is a Little B Sentiments die and the butterflies are Memory Box Pippi and Memory Box Isabella dies.


Tucked under the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers are Memory Box Chloe Stem,
Elizabeth Craft Curvy Leaves, Little B Mermaid Dies, and Impression Obsession Foliage. The ribbons are from DL.ART.

Hello, everyone and happy Monday!! I am praying for everyone effected by the hurricanes. It's my turn to post on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog and I'd love for you to stop by if you have time :) I have two birthday cards to share with you featuring hand-made flowers made with flower making foam.


For the foamiran flowers, I used white craft foam and cut them out with Diemond Dies Sugarplum Roses dies. I colored them with oil pastels and a baby wipe. The centers are Small Aqua Double Head Pearl Stamens. The papers are from Craft Consortium.


I also used Chelsea Roses, Lilies, Hip Rosebuds, Apple Blossoms, Sweetheart Blossoms, Mulberry Paper Leaves, Pearl Sprays and Self Adhesive Pearls.
