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!
Hugs,
Soph
