My Mind's Eye Anyone?

I love that My Mind's Eye has started having both layout and card challenges! The only problem is that it brings it to my attention that I have only older lines of the paper. I have been fairly good about NOT buying any more paper until I use some of what I have in my stash!
Guess I desperately need to WIN some! LOL!
The sketch is a fairly simple one and the request was to include a sentiment relating to the theme, "Celebrate Today".  I chose to celebrate a longtime friendship.

I used papers from My Mind's Eye, "Simply Delightful" stack; chipboard bird is MME, Bohemia, "Bliss Shapes"; stamp is Fiskars, Flower Sentiments; Recollections, pearls; and lace from JoAnn's.
I inked all my edges and made the scalloped edge by cutting a 1 inch strip of paper with my ProveCraft scallop scissors and pleat folding it. The pleats are more multi-dimensional because of pop dots applied to the back of the raised pleats.

Second post for today:

I had a very pleasant surprise today when UPS delivered a box to my door. I have been expecting a prize package from Zva, so you KNOW I was watching and waiting for that truck! 
After the guy pulled away, (I never go to the door while they are there because I'm usually in my sweats and t-shirt) I ran out to grab the box! It wasn't from Zva at all!  What??? I asked.  I didn't order anything recently(really, Larry) so what could it be?  
I opened it up and discovered I had WON a two piece saute set from WearEver.  I don't recall entering a contest, and had received no prior notice that I had won anything.  Wierd, eh?  Oh well, I never look a gift horse, or free cookware, in the mouth!  Most of you already know how I love to cook, so they will be well-used!
Here's wishing everyone a happy and lucky rest of the week!
