Black Eye Susan and more Blog Candy links!!




Wow! Blog candy is all over the place right now! Head on over to Nikki's blog for a chance at a super cute Xmas-y package with a couple High Hopes stamps and some Basic Gray Figgy Pudding paper.


Just a quick post today. This Penny Black image was stamped in VersaMark and colored with SU pastels and some shimmery ones too. Can't think of the brand right now and I'm not near them...sorry! Cut it out with oval nesties, matted on an Old Olive scalloped oval. The white background is PTI white and run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder - what did we ever do without this embossing folder?!?!?!? Chocolate chip is stamped with a leaf print from SU Petal Prints (I think is the name) in VersaMark. Pretty simple card really. I wish I knew how to tie a great bow cuz a bow in that fantastic grosgrain Old Olive ribbon would have really set this card off! Thanks for looking! Hope you all have a great day! :o) lyss

Very pretty card. I love that image and the color combo.

I struggle with bows too. Know what I do?...tie knots. Oh, and I just recently found this tutorial. Evidently the trick is to pull more with the left hand? Who knew! :)

This is a beautiful card! Love the layout, love the colours!!

I'm totally "bow-tarded". I can't tie a bow to save my life ... knots I can do, bows I cannot!
