Awareness

Hello, and happy Wednesday!
I make it short today... as you can tell, iam late with my posting.... and now i need to bring my kids to school and meet my surgeon. This is the last card i can show you using the supplies i received from Magnolia to use with the Pink Collection stamps. Iam not too happy with my coloring.. the reds are kind of difficult for me and i do not have too many shades to color with. Oh, well ... the rose Tilda is holding is colored 2x and i cut one out and popped it up. The paper first threw me off because underneath the oval is a huge bird but than i went to one of my favorite blogs and looked for some inspiration and i knew i wanted to case this card. The sting of white ribbon is from the fabulous new kit you can order over at Raspberry Ribbons! I love it - it has pure whites and antique colors in it this time.
Iam sure you know already that soon the Winter Club Kit is being shipped.. if you have not already ordered ,you should consider to do so soon, because it the offer is soon closed.

Now i have something to tell you :-) i my 1 year blog anniversary is coming up on November 08! Wow.. i can not believe it :-) the time flew and it is still so much fun. Since you all seamed to like my last blog candy with the handmade book - i thought i will offer something similar again.. but not just that.. I asked the companies i design for and they gave me generously stamps and card making goodies that i can offer on my candy. Iam just waiting for some mail so i can tell exactly what it is. I think i should be able to have the blog candy up on November 08.!!

Thank you so much for swinging by today and for any comments you might leave.
