A Match Made in Heaven!

Hi everyone!
I am so excited...........I made it into the  Gallery Idol Top 10!!!

I'm so absolutely honored that I am in this group of AMAZING, talented papercrafters. 
I'm not sure what else to say except THANK YOU for believing in me and my work and
for taking your time to go vote for me!

This rounds challenge was to use HOUSEHOLD items!  Things found around the house—hmmmm.

mini match to tie the whole thing together.  I love how it turned out!


Ok friends......I hope you like my card enough to go VOTE for it HERE.
I'd love to have your support and wouldn't be in the Top 10 without each and every one of you!
You have until Thursday at 1pm CST to go vote!
Thank you sooo much!
