DDD You're a Hoot .... and a WINNER!

Hi friends!

The 15th of every month on my blog 
is usually the day I post my card for the Dueling Darlings (DDD).
However, I wear many hats and have my hands helping many people
and lots of projects going at the same time
and the best laid plans .....

Funny fact!
Scientists have actually proven it's part of the multitasking
 Type A personality and state:
Anyone can be late a handful of times, sure, but to be the person who's always five minutes late (at the earliest) - that's an art.

I'm not late ..
I'm an artist!


My card is for the Dueling Darlings - Team Diva
and Heather and Beth were the hostesses this round with a theme of owls.
cute, cute!
Heather sent us a darling kit with owl images from Taylored Expressions
and the most scrumptious paper
that I totally wanted to hoard instead of use it!
I chose the bright, fun leafy paper as a backdrop and added the owls
(already cut out and easy to pop on the card - thank you, Heather!)
and the sentiment to the card. 
It's simple, but the paper was so busy, I just let the card hang out :)

Today, I have a winner for a surprise giveaway! ♥
I'm doing something a little different for the rest of this year :)
Rather than have a giveaway where lots of people show up
only for the giveaway,
I'm going to have smaller ones for my treasured readers and followers!

I appreciate you all so so SOOOOO much!
You inspire me in more ways than you can know ...
so if you stop by my blog,
you just may be a winner 
and I just may ask you for your address
and surprise you!
I will chose a random comment on a random post 
and yes! I'll mail anywhere in the world :)

And that's exactly what I did with my first winner .....

Thank you for so sweetly sharing your name and address
(I promise I'm not a weirdo, LOL!)
and how fun ...
happy mail all the way to the U.K.!
