Blog Candy Winner

Ackk! Time flies. I am so sorry to have taken so long. I have not been feeling up to anything lately. Hee, hee, finally found out why.....we are finally expecting our third child. Won't be due for a long while yet, but am certainly feeling the effects right now. So I will post the winner today, get the package out as soon as I get their address, and will post a project as soon as I feel up to stamping.
The winner is number 101:

Summer and Sea and Blog Candy!!

Eek!! I feel like I lost my mojo with my vacation from stamping. This is my warm-up DT card lol. I used Edwin's Town stamp for the buildings, The moon from the Goblin collection, and the boy from the Summer and Sea collection. Images are colored with Faber Castel, Prismacolor, OMS, Twinkling H2O's and a touch of Copic's for the hearts and windows. Paper is all from the Magnolia Store. Embellishment is Robin's nest Dew Drops. Stickles and Atyou glitter pens. Now for the fun part :)
Magnolia has very generously offered some wonderful Blog Candy for one lucky winner! There are two lovely Tilda's from their most recent release. There is also the picnic blanket for Tilda to sit on, a fence and a stitch for embellishment. Also included are some Flowers, rhinestones and some DP and a card base. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I will be drawing on Friday when I get back from Ottawa. Oh ya, I just got back and I have to run off again for a few days. My hubby has some appointments for lenses and to see a couple more family members before he leaves. We are doing alot of running around trying to find stuff that he needs to take with him. So have a great rest of week and will be back with the winner on Friday!

My Daughter's Birthday Card

Well, I am back and have been since Tuesday. It has been a mad rush to get my house up to scratch, to the groceries, evict the unknown remains which were attempting to crawl out of the refrigerator and prepare for my Friday night Stamper's Club. Phew! I just had time to stamp out a card today for my daughter's Birthday. We are celebrating a bit early ( it is August 2nd ) since she will be away at camp for it. I had to make her a special card that was perfect for my Prima Dona. She is now a very grown up 9 :) .
Stamps: High Hopes horse and lady, Rosie's Roadshow star
Paper: American Traditional Designs in Celebrate (DP), SU Soft Sky, So Saffron, Rose Red CS, Stamper's Select White
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Marigold Morning, Pacific Blue,
Other: Old Olive Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, Prisma color and Faber and Castel color pencils, Twinkling H2O's, Stickles, white acrylic paint, Jessie James glitter dots

I just love these images from High Hopes. They are so whimsical and fun. I based the colors on the wonderful options given in the DP Which I got from Phebe at the Town Scrapper. She has the coolest stuff in stock, and it is always shipped fast and with a smile. I colored the image with color pencil and OMS and then highlighted with Gamsol. Hopes you like :) . I am off to work on a Magnolia DT card so Cheerio!!
