Skateboard Girl and Blog Candy Alert


Wow, what fantastic weather we are having this weekend! The boys have been outside playing in the sandpit all morning.

I'm going to miss all this sunshine when I head down to Adelaide in just over a week. The drop in temperatures will certainly be a shock to my system. But it's worth it just to spend a little time with my Mum and Dad who I haven't seen for a couple of years and hopefully my two brothers as well who I haven't seen for atleast 15 years!

I actually managed to make a card last night, the first in ages that wasn't a Design Team challegne card. Kenny K released a few more All Starz images last week and I decided to colour up "Skateboard Girl".

Image and setiment are coloured with Copics and I have used Glossy Accents (same as Crystal Effects) on the helmet, skateboard, sentiment, scollops and corners.

I'm really happy with how this card turned out although it has one minor flaw, it doesn't fit in a 16cm x 16cm envelope!!

I am linking this card up to the following challenges:

Now on to the blog candy alert

My wonderful Mum, Shirley-Anne from Stamping for joy has a little blog candy give away on her blog.

Unfortunately, this time around she is only offering it to Australian Residents but maybe next time it will be world wide

This candy consists of :

Simply Sent Card Elements Kit " Flower Power",

Punches Three stamp set,

a paper pack , Patterns Pack 11

a container of rhinestones brads, Ice Circles.

I will be picking the winner on September 4th when I am down in Adelaide visiting Mum so be sure to swing past her beautiful blog and leave a little comment for her.

Thanks for stopping by today.
