Embrace Life Class + Weekend Blog Candy!

I had a great time the other night during my Embrace Life Class. Each participant got to make the 4 cards shown below. We embossed, punched, watercolored with crayons,  pencils and ink and alot more! We had an absolutely great time!

I don’t have enough time to write up a description of each card…it’s been such a crazy week with sick kids…I’m a bit behind. Don’t we all love winter??? Come on spring!!!!

I just noticed today that my blog is going to be 6 months old!!! Wow! I can’t believe it. I really got into this blogging world kicking and screaming- I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to maintain it and keep it up. But, I love it! It’s great to keep in touch with all of you and hear wonderful comments and make some new friends! Thanks to everyone who visits and leaves comments…it makes me feel so loved!

So to celebrate my 6th month of bloging and because it’s been a while since the last time…here’s a chance to win some Blog Candy! To enter, all you have to do is leave me a comment below and one lucky winner will win these 4 samples from my class!  I’ll leave this open until 8am Eastern Time on Wednesday March 5th, after which time I will select a winner with a random number generator.  I’ll post the winner as soon as it is selected and mail them out to the winner. Anyone can enter!!!

My next class is on March 17th…check it out HERE!!!

  38. Hi Josée… from another Josée
    I’m a demo as well, and I must say I check your blog regularly, if not on a daily basis. Your work is fantastic and I can’t wait to meet you face to face at your own convention (I registered last week).

    When I read that it made you feel loved to receive comments, I thought “Well, I’ll leave her one and give her a little more love then!”… And then I read about your blog candy, and of course I absolutely had to leave a comment 😀 Here’s to hoping I win!!

    Congratulations on your 6-month anniversary and keep up the good work!
