Happy Mother's Day & We Have Winners!!

The contest to re-create Janet's Mom's Day Card is over and we are pleased to announce TWO winners. Why two? We decided to award a winner in two categories - one for a card made using the Cricut, one made without. The winners are Deborah Sanderson (for her Cricut-made card) and Teresa Gentry for her non-Cricut card. Congratulations to both! Each winner will receive a package of Queen and Company self-adhesive laser-cut felt ribbon.

Deborah's card used a cereal box instead of chipboard. Her paper is by Jitterbug, she inked it with Color Box Dark Brown, there are Skittles on the centers of a few of the flowers, and she used an oval with ribbon to keep her card closed. Here's the pics of her card - darling!

Teresa used a font downloaded from the Internet to create her non-Cricut card. Teresa says, "I made the MOM stickers using the font and glued them to each side of the insert card. The front is d
one with textured pink cardstock and a green grosgrain ribbon glued down the middle, with five rhinestone hearts. The Happy Mother's Day tag is stamped on light green paper and then glued to a patterned paper that matches the paper used on the insert cards. The three insert cards are cut 6 3/4 by 3 inches from light weight cardboard and covered with two different patterned papers. I cut three cards measuring 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches out of green cardstock and glued these to the insert cards for pictures. For the back, I cut three more cards that same size, from the same green cardstock. I also cut three smaller light green tags for journaling." We think Teresa's card is an awesome recreation of the Cricut made card.

Thanks to both women for joining in the fun. Look for another contest announcement soon!
