Happy, Happy Friday! I'm super-happy today cuz' I don't have jury duty--YIPPEE for me!! I'm so relieved and happy that they didn't call my number last nite---yeah!! What a relief I tell ya!

"What a neat offer. I love WOJ stamps! My favorite movie isn't well known but I love it... Heart and Souls. It's a story about four 'souls' who were given a second chance if they helped someone on earth and didn't realize it until the time was almost up. Great movie. God bless."

Congratulations! Thank you to everyone who entered and left some great comments and great movies you all chose too! I can't believe I had so many of you enter--you all ROCK! And yes I do read every comment and email I recieve and I try to get back to everyone within a day if you've asked me a question!!

Because I had so many entries, I'm adding a second smaller blog candy (8 Whiff of Joy stamped images, 1 spool of ribbon and a bottle of stickles) and that second winner is...............

Email me your addresses asap so I can get your goodies to ya!! **NOTE** I use the number generator and then manually count the entries editing out double posts and those "friends" who commented but didn't want to enter, just so ya know!!

Most of the movies that were named were all some of my faves too, but here are my top 10 for ya:
1) When Harry Met Sally (we played the soundtrack at our wedding--its me & hubby's favorite movie evah)
2) Sleepless in Seattle (come on, when his son is on the phone to the radio host talking about his dad's new girlfriend, I still laugh my tail off, not to mention that I love Meg Ryan)
3) The Goonies (first movie I ever saw at the movie theater and I still love it)
4) Sixteen Candles (every girl can relate to Molly Ringwald in this movie)
5) Top Gun (let's just say I've seen it over 100 times!)
6) Steel Magnolias (You laugh, you cry--just all around great)
7) Meet The Parents (we laugh until we cry--too funny)
8) Breakfast at Tiffany's (love this movie so much, Audrey Hepburn was the best)
9) Indiana Jones--the first 3 (love action adventure and I love history--great mix of both)
10) Dirty Dancing (how can you not fall in love w/ Patrick Swayze and wanna dance at the same time)

Can ya tell I like romantic and comedy type of movies? What can I say, I love a happy movie--I don't wanna watch a movie and be depressed. I like action adventure too but I don't watch scary movies--I'm too much of a scaredy cat!! I've heard everyone loves the Mamma Mia movie so I'll have to go see that. I've seen the musical and absolutely loved that so I should like the movie too right! So there ya go--a little venture into my mind, scary right, ha ha!!

Today I'm showing you 2 different projects--no theme for ya today, hee hee! The first card uses Verve Stamp's new "Birthday Surprise" set--these birdies are just too cute! I wanted this card to be all monochromatic and very feminine (think all the pink will do, ha ha). All of the cs and dp is from PTI including the ink I used (berry sorbet and sweet blush). The corner scroll punch is from SU and I stamped out the presents and popped them up w/ dimensionals and added a few stickles. Great stamp set for birthday cards--you can dress them up elegant or make them super fun!

The second card is actually a postcard and a bookmark. Basically you write on the back like a postcard but the user can use it as a bookmark cuz' its small. I love this Guardian Angel from Whiff of Joy--her name is "Melinda reading Book". In my mind she's reading a memory book or scrapbook which is why I chose the "remember" sentiment from PTI. The dp is new from Black Market Paper Society. Is this leaf ribbon not the best thing--it's new from PTI and in their ribbon couture set. I just loosely attached it around the card and then added this metal flower brad to finish if off. And of course she's colored w/ Copics!! I also added some sparkle with my Atyou Spica glitter markers in clear and gold (if you click on the pic and make it larger you can see them).

Ok, onto to work on new projects. I got my Magnolia Fall Kit in the mail yesterday, and I cannot wait to stamp them up! Saturday our neighborhood is having a big Octoberfest Festival so we'll be there all day (wish I could go to the real one in Germany--one day maybe). Then I'm travelling out to my blog pal Marti's house (check out her blog and store Pez-a-doodles) to teach a Copics class which should be fun, although I've never taught a class before so we'll see...

Until then,

PS--Don't forget to stop by Jen's blog I{heart}2stamp tomorrow for her Saturday sketch and my card I did for it as her guest designer this month! It's a super fun sketch so go check it out!
