Email me your Full Name and Address and I'll get your RAC in the mail on Monday (DeborahL591@yahoo.com). Congratulations! Whew, that was fun. It was a blessing and a privilege to read your comments about what you are grateful for. I'm grateful to all those that visited and I hope you stick around for the month of February fun.

Week Two Challenge: Build a Flower

Above is the prize pack. Not pictured are the Queen and Co. heart felts and the surprise Fiskar item. As I continue to clean I find new things to put in the packs. So above prize pack PLUS!

This week's challenge is to build a FLOWER. I love flowers, but I love them more when I build one. These are my flowers I built. I even added a few hearts here and there because it's the month of Love.

You can build several flowers and have them ready when you want to do a layout or project. Your base can be a store bought ready to use flower or you can punch a circle or a decorative circle and just go around and snip it nearly to the middle. Ink it up and continue to build with other homemade flowers, bling or add smaller flowers. I love building with acrylic flowers. I used Queen and Co. here but I love Heidi Swaps Acrylic flowers too. Add a circle to the middle with a rub on quote. The ideas are endless.

(Some of the products I used on my flowers.)

Let's See Some of Your Ideas

When you finish building your flower, post a comment and a link to where you uploaded your flower. The challenge ends on Midnight next Friday and I'll post a winner and a new challenge on Saturday before I fly out to California for CHA! I'm still doing the happy dance on this one.

I'm sorry I did not get back this morning as I thought I could, but I was busy trying to earn some money for the CHA trip....God doubled my expectations and truly gave me an undeserved blessing.

Gratitude List:
1. Clear Day
2. Warm gloves
3. Good hubby
4. Great Son
5. God's unending blessings. Thank you Father.
