there's a lot of stuff here - a Stampin' Up! stamp set (slightly used), some 6x6 papers, some shimmer mist, some ribbon, some snowflake embellishments, some unmounted rubber stamps, some flower stickers, a provo craft die, decorative brads, assortment of embellishments including some of my hand crocheted snow flakes, and a set of blo pens (great for adding speckles to your background!), and a quickie glue pen. Right now I am at 310 followers. For every 3 more followers I gain until the end of this blog candy I will add another something to the prize package! I have added a package of six brass charms, a package of 12 sugar coating glitter by Doodlebug, a Viva Silver Pearl pen, two brand new foam mounted Inky Impressions stamps, a package of 60 self-adhesive clear gems, a four pack of fresh flocking from Studio G, a set of 10 metal tab clips by Making Memories, and seven sheets of hand dyed tissue paper to the prize package so far! When I reach 337 followers I will add this
Five different metal charms to tie on to cards or embellish scrap book pages.
To win this candy, just leave me a comment when I post something. I have a day picked out between October 11th and the end of the month. On that day I will have random. org pick a winner from the comments left on that day. You won't know which day is picked, so your best chance is to comment every day! I will announce the winner of the candy on November 1st! Good luck!
Hi everyone! Well shoot! yesterday I reached 334 followers and the tissue paper pack was added to the prize package, but someone stopped following and I'm back at 333. Oh well, I'll still keep the tissue paper in there and maybe I'll get to add the charms too! Four people need to hurry though if the charms are going in because there's only until tomorrow night left!
I have two cards again today. The first one was made for Squigglefly's blog challenge to use the colors of your season. Since I am experiencing Fall right now I used Autumn colors in this Thanksgiving card

I used the Stacked Pumpkins image by Jane Beljo and colored with Copic markers. The sentiment at the bottom is from Nina Brackett, but I omitted the blowing leaves from the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment before printing it.
I'm not really happy with the rounded corners on this, but I did it because the lower left corner of my card stock was bent in shipping and I forgot to turn it around and make the bent part the back of my card. I didn't like the way it was wrinkled and it was too late to pull my paper and image off, so I opted to round the corners and chop most of the bent part off.
The layout came from Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge this week. I colored the image with Copic markers and chalked a little yellow around it.
My next card is a Christmas card I made to add to my stash. I used Rich Davis's Christmas Montage and colored with Copic markers. I added a little bit of glitter to the stars. I like the snowflake pattern on my Snowbird Serenade card enough to do it again, but this time I used gold Pearl Ex.

I trimmed around the image panel with some decorative cut scissors and wrapped some red ribbon around the corners. One thing that is really cool about this image is that you could omit some of the squares and enlarge just the ones you wanted and have a whole different kind of image. Really, this one image is like 13 images!
One thing you might not know about Rich Davis is that he has a fun drawing game! If you've got any young to adolescent children on your Christmas list, you might consider looking at Rich's Pick and Draw game. I think it would also make a great gift to give to someone you know who has small children. It's not only fostering confidence and drawing talent in children, but it is entertaining and a great way to occupy them. I think it would make a fun game for families to do together too.
My massage yesterday was great! He worked me over and when I left I felt like spaghetti. He's got this picture in his room of three owls on a limb on a tree. One of the owls is hanging upside down and it says "Nobody's Perfect" on it. Well, I noticed today that he had taped "everybody's" over the "nobody's". I thought that was great!
Have a wonderful Saturday, and as always thanks for stopping by to see what I made!
