Finally...Some Eye Candy...

....and some BLOG CANDY too!

I have been so delinquent in my posting as of late, that I feel like I need to offer up a little something for my readers who continue to come back...I know there are at least two or three of you out there! LOL!

Seriously though, things are good, just incredibly busy in our household right now. I know that a lot of you can relate!

So, continue to the bottom of this post to see the blog candy that is up for grabs!

This card was made for a very dear friend of mine. She has always been generous and kind. She is a practicing Catholic, and I know that Angel Wings (one of the upcoming Stamp of the Month Club stamps over at Paper Pretties) is an image that will mean a lot to her. She and her husband recently had our whole family to their house in Cape Cod and they were wonderful hosts! They took us clamming (our very first time!) and then cooked up a marvelous meal! I wanted to send her a special card, and this is what I came up with.

The patterned papers are from Sandylion and they were paired up with Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip from SU! I used my rectangular nesties to cut out and mat the image. Angel Wings Sophia was coloured with pencils and blended with OMS. I used Dazzling Diamonds on her wings and liquid applique on the bottom of her gown. A shot with my heat was all it needed to puff up and look warm and cozy!

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and I used my word window punch to punch it out. Dimensionals to fasten it onto the card, a dash of ribbon, and I was finished!

Now, onto my blog candy!

I have a set 14 acrylic stamps up for grabs. They are made by K & Company and the set is called Special Occasions. The set includes stamps that say things like Delight, Treasures of the Heart, Remember, Happy, Simply The Best, Girl Stuff and Celebrate.

All you have to do is leave me a comment and I will announce the winner next Saturday!

Thanks for stopping by today!
