A Winner and (a "Loser")...

Wow! Thank you all so much for your wonderfully sweet comments on my All In the Family Giveaway. It looks like many of you have very supportive and fabulous hubbies, children and grandchildren whom you adore, and more than a few lovers of Paper Crafts Magazine! 
Before I get to the winner, I thought I would share one of my "loser" cards - appropriately enough, I had submitted this card to the very same May/June 2011 issue in which my hubby's comment was published! Alas, this card was not picked up (unsurprising, as the Teacher/Graduation cards that were are unbelievably adorable!) But, it's still a favorite of mine. I am sorry to say that I have misplaced my supplies list, but if anyone wants to know where I got anything, I will go and wrack my brain as to where it came from!
Now, on to the winner of the PC Magazine issue (plus a goodie or two from my supplies stash!) I should say that my husband's first random pick was, funny enough, P. Kelly Smith, editor at the magazine -- I figured that she probably didn't need a copy, so I asked him to draw again. He said he thinks the first person on these things almost never gets chosen, so that was his choice. So, the winner is:

Joan V!

who said: "Hi Regina, ah, what a sweet hubby. Love his comment. My husband makes me happy. He lets me sit for hours reading stamping blogs, buy Copic markers, make cards and scrapbook. He is very supportive of my hobby and loves that I always have a card ready for when someone needs one. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the Papercrafts magazine."

Congratulations, Joan! Please contact me to claim your prize. 

Thanks again to everyone who participated, and a very special thanks to the lovely ladies at Paper Crafts!

Hi Regina, ah, thank you for choosing me. I am very grateful to receive a copy of the Papercrafts Magazine.
What a cute card. I love the green background that looks like the chalk board. Thanks for sharing your card. I can see why it is one of your favorites.
PS, thank you Mr. Magnum.
