And We Have a Winner!!!!!!

I know I said I was going to announce the winner of the Blog Candy from Flowers, Flowers Everywhere yesterday, but we have had some storms in our area and some "life" happened. 

I think the storms have stopped for a bit. I was able to get on line and choose a winner. VinDeeLoo's Generator from chose Day 1 and Post 19. The winner is........

Your flowers are unique! I like it! I want to know how you made the "spiral" things on the first card-are you sharing that secret?

Congratulations Krista!!! I will be contacting you shortly for an address to mail your candy too.

Krista asked about my spiral flower. I contacted the gal that taught the class I went to. She contacted me last night and told me they are called slide mounts. She purchased them from Quick Quotes. They are 5/$1.00 and can be ordered online from (This link will take you to the mounts.) They also come in square, so just be sure you order the ones you looking for.

We took a piece of ribbon - a strip of material could also be used - and wrapped it around the slide mount. Very easy to make and evidently from all the comments sharp/nice looking.

Quick Quotes has PowderPuff Chalking Inks. I used some in class and really liked it. I am gonna have to make a trip to Tulsa (the closest store to me) and buy some or purchase them online.

Less than a week of school left. I can't wait. I get to start do much more crafting!!!
Until next time ~ VinDeeLoo

Well thank you. I love all flowers. Thanks for answering the question about the "spiral thingy." The way you explained it reminds of the pom pom animals we made as kids. I will check the website. I could probably make my own "rings" (we did as kids).
