"LOVE LOVE LOVE your page!!!! and I love Monteray too, it's sooo pretty!!!! way to go girlie!!!!"

To honor my winner, I made a card. :)

I used Lucy's March sketch, from My Sketch World.
More of that Mustard Soup pp by jillibean that showed up in my mail yesterday. The yarn flower is handmade (because I refuse to spend $3.99 on a package of 3 when I have a ton of yarn in my craft room), FP button, & a tiny office tag w/dymo label maker sentiment.
Be on the look-out for a package of blog candy, Wendi!! :) :)

To everyone else who joined in the Paper Variety blog hop, I hope you had fun!!
I wish I could send you all out a prize. Thank you to all of my new followers - I hope when you come by my blog, you get a little bit inspired, pick up a tip, or at the least...smile. That would make me feel so good!! :)

hugs, patti

p.s. Here is a tutorial from Suzanne of TPV on the making of a yarn flower. Tips from me - use a chip circle for your base, use tacky glue and only a bit at a time, hold onto the yarn tail so that it doesn't get extra glue on it, and you will have a beautiful circle yarn flower. You can do it! :)
