2018 February Blog Candy Winner List

OK, here's what you have all been waiting for, here's the winner list!!!

Bee Happy

Here's the cutest image from Paper Nest Dolls, she's Bee Happy Ellie.  She's just too sweet. I am so excited to have prizes from Paper Nest Dolls this month.  Their stamps are so darling.


Question of the day 2:  what is your favorite embellishment?  what is your least favorite?

I think my favorite embellishment is either buttons or lace...I am sure that was obvious lol, though I also love flowers and brads/bling;  Anything with stitching, cardstock stickers with sentiments and colorbox chalk ink on the edges;
  My least fav is prob glitter. I just can't control the mess.  I also don't use much eyelets, alphabets.  An item I love to buy but don't use enough of is washi tape

Happy Monday everyone! Today I am sharing a card I made using an image from Sheepski Designs. I made this card for the current Challenge over on Outlaws Monday Greetings challenge. Our theme this week is winter.  As always, don't forget to add a sentiment to the front of your card!

Question of the day:  what types of die cuts do you like?  shapes?  borders? topics? animals? flowers? small embellishments?

Can you all guess what I have been doing with my free time?  LOL, like I have any of that.  In addition to working and having this celebration, I am also making myself start walking again and getting ready for the upcoming Capitol 10k Run/Walk.  So far I am about 4.25 miles a day. (that's and hour and half after school lets out, when you know you are tired, lol!). 

Anyways, I have been taking your answers and STARTING packages for the winners (and maybe, but you didn't hear it from me) and upcoming winners of the blog candy, because I have SO many more envies in this pic than I have names on the list!! HINT HINT Packages are NO where near done as I don't have all your answers--so don't forget to give me your answers and of course, you may get picked again which means even more goodies in your envie :)

Seize Every Opportunity

Here's a fab image from Bloobel stamps!  I just love this artist's images.  I added a fun sentiment, "seize every opportunity" which I thought would be just perfect for this month's celebration.  I am so thankful for what I have been given that I do try and remember to seize what I have and be thankful for what I have been given.


Question of the day:   Do you like this cute little girl?  She's the prize that will be given away as a digi file today to several winners!

Fairy Dog

Here's a super cute image from By Miss Rach stamps called Fairy Dog.  I combined that with two different trims and lace from Turkiye.  By Miss Rach also has a great blog, HERE which includes some awesome freebie stamps, HERE.
Question of the day:  Which of these Freebie stamps is your favorite? freebie stamps, HERE.

My personal fav is the one 2 up from the bottom, though y'all saw my super cute card with that chick on top! (it's here); Here's another card I did with one of her adorable freebies, click here.

If you have never used a digi stamp before, just right click on it, download (choose Save picture as to load it to your hard drive) then you have a file can print it out. What's great is you can make it as big or small as you like!  I use Microsoft word and import the image into a document and print 4 images at a time.

Happy Birthday Sister

As a bonus Feb 14th treat, I made this card for my sister who is currently teaching in Abu Dhabi with her husband (also a teacher).  I wanted to wish her a very happy birthday today! I hope she is having a wonderful experience overseas and just loving her work.

Have a very Happy Birthday Sister! Have a special day today.

Please leave my sis a happy bday from your location.

for example.  Happy Bday from Austin, TX USA

Valentine's Day Love

Here's the valentine card that I made for my DH.  I hope he will like it. This stunning image comes from Ike's Art.  Her lady stamps are fabulous. This image is called Never.  Be sure to check out the Ike's World Challenge as every two week's there is a new contest and she gives away a wonderful digi stamp freebie so you can play along!   http://ikesworldchallengeblog.blogspot.gr/

Question of the day number 1:  do you use printed papers of mostly card stock? premade cards (i.e. blank cards you get in packs) or just cut up paper to make your own cards?  What size?

I like to cut my own cards, have a really hard time using printed papers, I am always so envious of people who can pair papers with images, esp those who can use multiple papers at once.  I also just buy plain or polka dotten cardstock and cut my own cards typically rather than buy packs of blank cards.  I do a lot of square in 5.5 to 6"

Check back later this afternoon for ANOTHER post :)

Questions of the day:  Do you like big eye stamps?  Little girl stamps?  what type do you prefer?
