Why?

Wow.. what a weekend :-) yesterday Heidi was here from 2 pm til almost 0:00 pm.. guess what .. i got only one card done laugh.. oh my gosh.. i had such a good time .. we were just chatting and chatting.
I made this card with my new Rasberry Ribbon kit which will be availabe next month for purchase. I it is called "Paisley Kit" In the kit will be included all the paisley elements you see on my card and both ribbons i used. I altered my paisleys a little bit - i used Timber Brown Stazon to distress them and on the bigger paisley i punched the holes out with my Crop a Dile.

The cattails were sent to me by my dear friend Carole. I cut part of them out so i was able to have Edwin sit behind the cattails.

Now again for the blog candy... i will tell tomorrow who the winner is. Some of you noticed that Magnolia, Sweden has sent to the Design Team Members a generous amount of stamps to give away as a blog candy.

I have decided not give the stamps away as one big blog candy.. i rather want many of you have a chance to get new stamps. What i will do is... from all my subscribers - thanks for signing up due to my last blog candy raffle... i will pick randomly a winner for a new stamp. No need for you to advertise my candy on your blog, you do not need to post on anything or make a card and upload it somewhere.. no work for you at all :-)
I will contact the winners via email - if you get back to me within 24 hours you won a new Magnolia stamp - if not i will pick a new girl from my subscriber list. This way everybody has the same chance no matter if you are a blogger or just a reader.

Lets have fun and i will show the stamp that was won on the day i publish the winner.

  2. I love that card and I have you on my google reader. I would love to win a stamp. As a new "card maker" and I use that term loosely I would love to win some stash. I have made a few cards but after reading all the card making blogs, I realize that I have a lot to learn.
