100 POSTS--Candy Time!!

I can't believe how time flies. My little blog is up to 100 posts and I have several regulars and subscribers. I thank you all for joining me this far and appreciate all the comments you leave.
First, how about a card. I got the chance to play a little more with my Christmas present from Shelli (SU! CEO). This stamp set is fun. Not only do I love the double line image, but the combination of flower and secondary images are wonderful. This card did not turn out exactly how planned, but I like it anyhow.
Watercolor Wonder Crayons do not work for the crayon resist technique. I need to steal my DD regular old crayola white crayon. All of the heart outlines were supposed to be white. After sponging on the two different ink colors (Real Red and Pixie Pink) I went back with a White Gel Pen and highlighted a few areas. I got the inspiration for this card from one I saw on Patti Chesky's Blog. Patti's had a little more random pattern to the colors. I wanted my hearts to be the focus with the color.
There is great news in the Stamping World. The Card Ladies are back in business. After a devistating fire that took their home and fur babies, The Card Ladies have some of their items ready for sale in time for Christmas. I absolutely love their Adjustable Bow Maker. It makes the cutest little bows of any size. You don't have to worry about them coming untied and you can put them anywhere on your projects without having to wrap the ribbon around something.
This brings me to my blog candy. I am giving away an Adjustable Bow Maker.
You simply need to leave a general comment. I would love to check out your blog as well, so if you have one please put the address in the comment. Friday morning (when I finally drag my body out of bed to blog) I will randomly draw one name out of a hat from all the comments left on this post and order that person their very own Adjustable Bow Maker from The Card Ladies. Please be sure to check back and see if you won.
Please check out The Card Ladies web site for the other crafting items they have. Their templates for covering tin boxes are also back in stock. She is waiting on her new embroidery machine to get those wonderful t-shirts going again. Their shipping rates are also quite reasonable.
