Final post today...I promise!

My nephew, Royce, taught me how to use Prismacolor pencils (he had a set of 12 he no longer needed for school and gave them to me...YIPPEE!!). This is my first go at using them and I thought it turned out nice! The blending really makes everything look alot smoother than regular crayola...LOL! Digi is Dracula Ridley from Digital Delights...he is so cute!

4th post...somebody stop me!!

LOL! Can you tell I am having fun today?? I had lots of catching up to do and since I had the day off work I decided to go for it...the house is getting neglected but it will still be there later! :P

I really like how this card turned out! I love those three colors together and I just had to try out my new stickles that I got in my candy win and I must say NOW I know why they are used so much....they are so puffy/sparkly!! Also very easy to apply so of course now I am going to want them all! My wish list is getting HUGE!
This is also another free digi from I don't know where...if anyone knows please let me know so I can credit these people!

Now for the challenges:

La La Land Crafts - Sparkle
Crafty Catz #4 - colors (black, white and one other color), also include a ribbon and some other embellishments
Charisma Cardz #41 - distressing (I sanded the edges of the background black and also the little red tabs on the image in the middle...not sure you can really see the distressing so well but I tried!)

3rd post today...I'm on a roll!!

I wanted to share with you this unity candle holder I made for my friend's wedding a few weeks ago but have never posted yet! Really hard to take a picture of glass!! Also hard to etch items that are not out the hard way! Anyways, I hope you enjoy!

Just Buggin' - anything but a card (Used my cricut to cut the vinyl!)

DIC007 - anything but a card

Cornucopia Card

This card was so hard to color!! The image really isn't of the best quality...kind of blury so I had a hard time telling where to color...I got the image free online but can't remember where. This was before I got smart and started making folders for my digis so I could remember where I got them! I didn't want my hard work of coloring to go to waste so I made a card.

Get Sketchy #10 - sketch
Die Cuts R US - earthy
Creatalicious - use up scraps (I told you I had alot of scraps!)

More goodies in the mail!

First picture is blog candy I won from Dianne at Paper Hugs! Look at all these goodies...WAHOO!! I have always wanted to try stickles and now I get my chance! I need to buy some EZ mount so I can use my new stamps...they look awesome! The paper is fantastic...I could go on and on...LOVE ALL OF IT! If you get a chance please go check out her blog! Right now she has a napkin she stamped on and colored with cool!

The second picture is a CTMH stamp set I won through a JuJu Bee Blog Buzz on Jamie's blog here. This stamp set is FANTASTIC!! Look at all the layers of cake!! They are separate so I can create it however I want!

Some great stuff ladies...thank you so much!!! :)

I have been a very lucky princess lately with being able to buy all kinds of stash with my money that I have been hoarding for so long and now I am winning all kinds of stuff! I must of been a very good girl! LOL! I actually have more winnings but I will wait to post when I get them in the mail!

I also have almost 20 followers (hopefully I will get more soon)!! WAHOO!! I am feeling very thankful for all my gifts and my shopping travels I have managed to obtain doubles of some items (oops, how did that happen?....HEHE!) I just might be giving something away soon as a little appreciation!! So be on the lookout! :)
Now I am going to do a little hopefully you are reading ALL of this post!!
I will be able to tell who reads everything...hehe! I'm sneaky too so watchout!
If I were to post some candy should I do multiple mini giveaways (and let you pick what you want out of a few choices) that away there would be more than one winner OR should I group everything all together and only have one winner???

Let me know what you think!!!
I have a few hours to play before I gotta do chores so stay tuned...
