Please be kind and my first BLOG CANDY!!!



First, do you like my header??? Honestly, whatcha think? I did it myself and just wondering if it looks cheesy or not. Ok, now for the important schtuff ~~
Man, it has been a looooong time since I stamped! It took me 3 days to finish this card and I'm still not happy with it ~ something's just not *right*! Anyway, I combined this week's Color Challenge and Sketch Challenge. I colored the petals with my aquapainter and inks ---- let me interrupt this post with a small pity party ~~ the P.O. lost 2 boxes I'd mailed from HI that had my ENTIRE set of SU markers and Lord know how many stamp sets in them!!!! wwaaaahhhhhh!!! ---- back to the post ~~ I did the flower center using crystal effects and microbeads. It looks so cool IRL. Ok, so be honest, how bad does this stink?? Is there hope that I find my groove in the near future?? Enough whining...


Now for blog candy!!! Just a little thanks for checking in during my move and lack of posting! I hope to get in the groove again really soon since the house is *almost* all put together. I only ask that you comment on this post with what challenges you'd like to see from me. Color challenges? (but remember, I'm no Emily G!) Sketch challenges? (and nope, I'm no Rox, either!) I want to keep everyone interested and coming back, so any and all input is appreciated! OH, how 'bout a pic of the *candy*???


Some goodies from Michael's and Target, plus a few Heidi Swapp chipboard and ghost flowers. I'll use that random.org thingy people are using to pick a winner!! I'll close this Sunday evening at 9pm and post a winner at that time.
Hope y'all have a great weekend!!!
hugs ~ Angel

I like your card, Angel--especially the microbeaded center! For what it's worth, your blog title doesn't look cheesy to me.

I really like your card I do't see any thing wrong with it, infact it makes think I should give this set another try. It was one of the frist one I bought when it came out, since it arrived it has sat uninked. I really like what you done with it. Thanks for sharing!

The card is very nice...is it some words missing? I think it looks alright by itself but obviously you still aren't convinced! :) And the blog title is pretty! It looks....peaceful to me! And I would love to see tutorials along with any challenges that are out of the ordinary. Thanks for the chance, the candy looks yummy! :)

Count me in on this sweet candy. I just love your card. I like how you did the petals and the colors are so pretty. I think your banner ROCKS! I would like to see some tutorials on altered items.
Thanks for a chance.

That card is really gorgeous! I love how you made some of the petals 3 dimensional and your coloring is wonderful. Great blog candy - that bunny is so cute:)

I like your card and your blog title is great, I am impressed you did it yourself, as its something I wouldn't even know how to attempt! As for the color challenge ,Think Spring, I saw some glitter called cotton candy, bumble bee yellow and limeade, and its so gloomy here, I think those colors would perk us all up! Thanks and keep up the great work!

I love your card as is Angel. It's wonderful. On your header, may I suggest something? Maybe make your flowers bigger? or possibly put something/or stamp in the white circles top left/bottom right. HI flowers! :) It's all good!

Andrea said...

Sorry about the lost parcels, they'll turn up eventually, I'm sure. The banner is great, I like the colours, your card is great too, amyber needs a word or 2. Tutorials would be a good addition to your blog< i have difficulty colouring my stamped images, nothing looks as good as yours. Regards. Andrea

Your banner looks good, I love pink! So sweet of you to offer blog candy. I like the sketch challenges because then you have a great template for future use, but anything you post is great.

Smiles!
