Now, before I get to the details of the BLOG CANDY I am giving away, I want to share my latest card using a Sweet Pea Stamps image. This is Midnight Waiting by ching chou kuiks on Plate #29. It is one of the earlier releases from Sweet Pea Stamps and still one of my favorites. Of course, I could say that about every image from Sweet Pea Stamps! She has gathered some amazing artists and there is something that for everyone to love.
Now, for the BLOG CANDY. I have TEN, yes, TEN images to give away AND I am going to send them ALL to one lucky winner. My only stipulations are that you can not sell any of these and if you receive any images that are duplicates of ones you already own, please pay them forward as blog candy of your own. Fair enough?
I bet you are thinking, "Alex, that is all well and good, but how do I win?". Just comment on my personal blog HERE, making certain I can reach you via email, and tell me what your very favorite artist is at Sweet Pea Stamps. I will use random.org to draw a winner and announce it on my personal blog HERE on May 1. If you would like to share about this, and all the other blog candy happening to celebrate Sweet Pea Stamps 3rd anniversary, that would be fabulous!!

I added a wonderful sentiment from Oliver Wendell Holmes that says "Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave but not our hearts." I added a huge heart shaped brad from Bazzill and used some yummy cardstock from SEI with gold embossing as my base. I just see this fairy looking out across some distance thinking about her home. As the saying says, even though we are not there, home is with us, in our hearts.
Here's a close up of this wonderful stamp. It's great both individually and with the whole sheet. Also, be sure to watch all the specials this week as Sweet Pea celebrates three years in business and drop by the DT blogs while each member has blog candy from Sweet Pea stamps to give away. My blog candy started on Wed the 25th, and you can still sign up by simply visiting my blog and leaving a comment on Wed's posting (Click here). Best of luck to win a wonderful prize this week as Sweet Pea is celebrating their 3rd year in business and don't forget their wonderful sale at the store!
Have a crafty day!

This stamp is from artist Anna Marines Collection and is called Violet (Plate #186). Wouldn't this make a pretty anniversary card? I will also say there's 10 bling in black, that's for the 10 years that we have been married. Here's one more subtle thing about this card that no one else would get but me and him, the eyes on this woman are actually two shades of grey. They are small, so you don't see it well here, but my husband's eyes are a faint blueish grey shade. I always think of him when I do grey eyes.Here's a close-up of that gorgeous lace. I love it that the lace on her outfit has roses too. I could so imagine this lace being on her outfit.
Hope you enjoyed this card and I hope you will celebrate with Sweet Pea for their 3 years of wonderful stamp making!! Please drop by Holley's Blog , http://holleybarnhartsblog.blogspot.com/ and sign up by leaving a comment on the posting with this Sweet Pea card, which will be posted Wed, the 25th, signups will be taken all week and I will announce my blog candy winners next Wed, May 2nd!

I enjoyed coloring the Emerald Dragon in Ruby colors this time. I see a Sapphire colored dragon in my future as well.

The second card is using a crafty lady, a seamstress, perfect for that crafter in your life. This elegant lady image stands out wonderfully on dark paper. She's designed by Meredith Dillman and is called Fanciful Notions. I colored with Copic Markers, the image was cut out using Spellbinders Nestabilities and edged using Creamy Brown Colorbox Chalk on the edges.
She's sewing in the image, which made her go perfectly with this border punch, using amazing looking textured ruche paper called Khaki Crepe. The card base is Epic Thick Black Columns. I also used creamy brown chalk on the edges to highlight the columned texture. The creamy brown matches the khaki crepe paper color very well. This card would be just perfect for that sewing crafter in your life. Think of the quilt makers, stitchers, seamstresses,...I know so many talented ladies in that line of work. They would just love a card like this.
Have a great weekend. Break out the stamps and have a great time!
