I can't believe it...

... it only feels like yesterday that I had a 30,000 visitor giveaway, and now I've reached 40,000.  This makes me very happy.  Time for a little RAK?  Leave a comment below to be in with a chance to win some random goodies from my stash :)  
So... here's another of my scrap challenge cards.

Supplies: Stamps (background, sentiment, butterfly) and gems - Hero Arts; Kraft Cardstock - Bazzill; Pink - Papertrey Ink; Blue - unknown; corner rounder; sewing machine.
Does anyone else think this week is flying by?

So pretty! I love that stamp and the damask background makes the perfect backdrop for it, too. This week does seem to be going by quickly - probably because I haven't gotten all of my Halloween cards done yet!
