Dream Scheme Thursday & some Blog Candy Winners!!

First of all, I want to announce some winners from last week’s Dreamweaver Blog Hop with Woodware UK.  I posted on Wednesday & Thursday of last week, so that means TWO lucky people will win Dreamweaver prizes.

From my Wednesday post….Daria

From my Thursday post…Karen B.

Please email Lynell Harlow (, and she will get your prizes in the mail.

Congrats ladies!!!

Until this week, I haven’t had the chance to use the new LJ911 Gears stencil

I don’t know about you, but this stencil  yells  “EMBOSS ME WITH ALUMINUM”!!!

So I listened to it and ….


Tah Dah….My Father-In-Law got a birthday card!! 

This card couldn’t have gotten any easier.  I simply paste embossed the Happy Birthday (LM239) sentiment with Glossy Black paste and set it aside to dry.

I then ran the Gears stencil through the Vagabond machine with black aluminum.  I then lightly sanded off the black to reveal the aluminum underneath!!!  I love this effect.  While I was making this card, I had another fabulous idea, using this stencil that I will share with you next week during a FUN color challenge!!! 

This week you can link up  your fabulous creations at Dream It Up.  You will find the Mr. Linky widget there.

Please visit all the Dream Team’s blogs today to see what they have been doing with their Dreamweaver Stencils.   You will see the entire blog roll to the right of this post!!

I hope you have a great day!

Gears and metal are perfect together and you've done a great job on this one. Can't wait to see what you've done for next week's color challenge.
