Blog Candy Winner - Shabby Chic Vase/Business Card Holder

Hello blogging friends!  Sorry I have been mia for a few days.  We had a storm come through a couple of days ago and we didn't have any power or internet.  But everything is up and going and now I am trying to play catch up with blogging.  ;-)   This blog post is going to be a mix of a few different things--Blog Candy Winner, a project to share and answering some emails and comments.

First lets start off with announcing the WINNER of the Bazzill Basics Paper Blog Candy. 

I want to say Thank You so much to everyone who played along!! 

This time I printed out all of the comments and cut them into strips.

Then I had my little guy help me out again and pick a winner.  

And the Winner IS----------->

Great tags Heidi! I am a follower and do so enjoy your blog! I like the Beach House...guess it is because our daughter lives a block from the beach and all the pictures I get from her are at the beach...LOL!

I have emailed Jan and I am sure I will be hearing from her really soon.  She is a sweet lady and has been a follower on my blog for a long time.  

Ok, now for a project to share. 

A couple of weeks ago my neighbor lady had a garage sale and I picked up this little vase.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it because it was pretty tiny but I thought it was really cute and I figured I could alter it or us it in a project.  I took it out the other day and when I was looking at it trying to figure out what I could do I realized this would make a really pretty shabby chic business card holder.

I decided to alter it and this is what I came up with.  I added a medium sized pink chandelier piece and then I added circle pearl sprays to each size.  

I filled in the center with pink mulberry flowers, pink and white ribbon and porcelain roses, white porcelain roses and clear mini chandelier pieces.  All of the embellishments are from Pro 31 Designs.

I just love how this turned out!  ;-) 

I want to answer the comments and emails that I have received in regards to having the word verification on my blog in the comments.  I know that sometime it can be hard to read it and I am sorry but there isn't anything that I can do to change that.  Last week I had a few comments with people saying they don't like the word verification and I also had a few emails about it.  I originally put it on because I was having a lot of issues with  spam comments.  But I thought I would take it off again and see how things go.  Within less then 24 hours I had 15+ spam hits and comments on my blog.  So I turned the word verification back on.  I am sorry and I know it is a pain but I just do not have the time to monitor the blog for spam so for now it will stay until I can come up with a better solution.  Thanks for understanding!! ♥

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you all have a Fantastic weekend!!

Hugs & Smiles,

Accessories:  Vase, Hot Glue
