Birthday Blog Candy

*****Blog Candy Is Now Closed*****
Thank you to everyone who entered and good luck.I'll be back tomorrow to announce the winner.

As today is my birthday I've decided to offer some blog candy.I know vintage and shabby chic are popular in cardmaking,so I've put in goodies that are suitable for this style.I meant to have this up on my blog a few weeks ago and make the draw today,so instead I'll start it today and let it run until the 8th of September when I'll make the draw.

Included in the candy is:
1 x set of Darkroom Door rubber stamps (Melody)
1 x K&Co Paper Pad (Ancestry)
5 x Sheets of Panduro Paper
1x Martha Stewart Edge Punch (Scallop Dot)
2x Rhonna Farrer Swirl Stamps
1x Tin of Prima Forever Flowers Pink Hydrangeas
1x Pack of Blue Flowers
1x Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink (Old Paper)
5x Sheets Of Vintage Glittered Rub On Pictures
1x Ranger Ice Stickles (Crystal Ice)
1x Deco Art Glamour Dust (Crystal)
1x Pack Kanban Diamonds & Pearls
1x Pack Metal Filigree Accents
9x Bunches of Roses
3x Lengths of Lace
A selection of Ribbon Bows
I also might have another Gorjuss little surprise to add to it too if I can.

**Edited** Included is a 16"x20" print of Heather and Her Thistle by the Gorjuss lady herself Suzanne Woolcott.I had ordered a canvas wrap of the image and they sent the print instead.So after receiving my canvas I was told I could keep the print too,so I have to thank them very much for being so kind.
This is the little lady included.

To be eligible I'd like you to link to it and to leave me a comment on what your favourite rock song is.It's that simple.I'll hopefully try and pin this to the top if I can get it to work...lol
TFL and Good Luck

Card For Amy

My matey Stu asked me to make a card for his friend's little girls 1st birthday.He chose the Gorjuss girl image himself from my many...lol.I have to thank him for taking the picture too as I posted it off to him without taking any myself....dooohhh.That wasn't the first time either.....lol.
It's based on the Sugar Bowl sketch from a week or so ago,but as usual I didn't get it uploaded on time.Must try to get more organised.(hahaha) I also made a matching box to go with it.

Image - Gorjuss Girl Little Miss Attitude coloured with Copic Markers
Cardstock - Bazzill
Papers - All Doodlebug (apart from yellow bit under the name which is Imaginisce)
Letters and Rubons - Doodlebug
Border Punch - Fiskars Lace
Pearls - Kanban
Flowers,spacers,ribbon and brads - from stash

On the subject of Gorjuss girls.I ordered a Gorjuss girl canvas wrap which was to be a present from my mum for my birthday.It arrived today,but it was only a print,not a canvas.I was so looking forward to it too.I've had to email them about it,so will have to wait until I hear from them.Fingers crossed it all gets sorted soon.

**Update on Canvas***
Gorjuss girl canvas arrived safe and well this afternoon.Phewwwww

Two Cards Received

Just thought I'd share these two cards with you.One was for Louis from Kath's gorgeous crafty chum Buddy along with a parcel with some pencils and sweets in it.Needless to say the sweets didn't last long enough to photograph.

Next is a gorgeous Post It Note holder I got from my lovely friend Tina along with a little notecard and all in a beautiful matching box.

The pictures don't do them justice even though I treated myself to a new camera.After being undecided for months I finally went for the Canon EOS 450D.Not sure my cards will improve but hopefully the pictures will.....lol.Just need to get myself to some photography classes and learn how to use it...hehe.
I'm also in the process of getting some blog candy together as it's my birthday next week.I had hoped to have it all organised sooner than this,but as usual I'm at the coos tail.Louis went back to school today so I might get some time back for crafting.For now I better scoot as I've got a Body Pump class shortly.

Back From My Hols

Hi folks I'm back from my hols and been busy painting.Not the arty type.The roller and emulsion type.I'm up to my eyes in it and still got a bit to do.Haven't been doing much crafty wise but have a few cards I can share.I spent a fair few ££££ on holiday on crafty stuff as I visited Funkykits shop in Elgin (Papercrafts Boutique) and the lovely Simply Create in Alford,where I met up with my fabby bloggy buddy Kath again.We had a great crafty gab with Jacqui the owner of Simply Create.It was a fantastic afternoon and was over way too soon.This is the card I made for Kath.I know she loves Penny Black images and MME Bloom and Grow papers so used both on the card.

Image - Penny Black Hanging On (Discontinued I think)coloured with Copics
Cardstock - Bazzill
Papers - MME Bloom And Grow
Sentiment - Papermania
Punches - EK Success Flower
Brads - Papermania Pearl and MME Bloom And Grow
Leaves - From My Local Florist Wholesaler (they were white and I coloured them with copics)

I also made a treat bag for Buddy but forgot to take a picture of it.

I also want to thank Sharon for a lovely blog award she left for me while I was on holiday.Thank you so much Sharon I really appreciate it.
I'm supposed to pass this on to some bloggy buddies,but most will have it so I'm going to nominate only one blog.It's for a lady who has just started off her blog and is a very special friend of mine.We met through the Docrafts forum.She's also just landed a DT position with Stampin Chic and no one deserves it more.So this award is going to Tina at Rainbird's Ramblings.Pop over and give her a big bloggy welcome and see her fabulous cards.

I'll hopefully get some blog hopping done tonight,well at least a start of it and catch up with all your lovely crafty creations.I've missed seeing them all.
