Happy Independence Day to ALL of my American Friends!  I also hope all my Canadian friends had a wonderful Canada Day on July 1st!  We (myself and my family as well as Soph and her family) spent the weekend visiting our family in Ottawa and celebrating our younger sister’s engagement.  Her and her fiance are such a beautiful couple!

Although I didn’t have time to finish a project to share with you all, I did want to take a minute to pop in and announce the winners of the Delicate Doilies One Sheet Wonder Class.

Before I do so, I want to thank everyone of you that took a moment to stop by and leave a comment.  It always makes our day to hear from you guys!

I have to tell you, this is always the hardest part of the month for me as I always want to be able to gift each and every one of you with the tutorial (read on for news about a surprise at the end of the post though)…..BUT

Since this is a weekend of celebration I did decided to draw 10 winners instead of the usual 5.

Andrea this is my first time to post on a blog. I watch all of your videos and have visited your webpage. I have learned a great deal from both places. I would love to learn about the onesheet wonder technique. I would also love to win the class, but nevertheless I wanted to thank you for your videos and webpage instructions. I look forward to receiving my new punch so I can try out the blossom card. Thanks again for sharing your creativite techniques.

What I love most about your planners is that they entice me to buy products that I probably would have never considered. Your planners are so descriptive and easy to follow and I have learned so many techniques from using them that I probably would have never really known. I am guessing your brain is creating all the time because you keep the ideas coming and they are all awesome. Thanks for all that you and Sophia do!

If you are one of the lucky winners please email me at [email protected] and be sure to put “Delicate Doilies Blog Winner” in the subject line.  In the body of the email please specify whether you would like the Stamp Class by Email version OR the Class Planner version for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.  If you already purchased this class then please let me know and select another tutorial or planner of your choice from either www.sunnystampinstore.com or www.demotodemo.com

Okay, and now for the SURPRISE….

Well, actually, I’m just building anticipation for the surprise.  Although I guess since I’m going to tell, you it’s not much of a surprise…but when it happens, pretend you’re surprised anyways okay?

Remember earlier in the post when I told you I wished I could gift ALL of you with the planner?  Well, I WILL be gifting all of you with a brand-new EXCLUSIVE planner which I’ll be releasing mid-July…..and I have to tell you – it’s stinkin’ cute – I absolutely LOVE it!  Sooooooo, stay tuned for the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT on how you can receive your free gift!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a project – and hopefully a free video and handout for you all!
