Finally, all the goodies are here and I can finally get my birthday blog candy up and running! I hope you have not grown disinterested while waiting. There are a lot of goodies, and I am awarding them as one prize. You do not need to follow my blog or post the candy on your side bar to participate. If you follow, I would like it to be because you want to, not for the candy. Making a card according to my inspiration photo will entitle you to an extra chance to win the blog candy.
So, let me start listing the birthday blog candy:
First, from Virginiasvignettes on Etsy: You can see the breakdown of the items in the first photo by visiting the 2-18 blog entry. Virginia is so talented.
In this next photo, the carded vintage ribbons and fibers are also from Virginiasvigettes on Etsy as are the beautiful vintage salt and pepper shakers with mica flakes and glitter. Also included are pink crystal leaves and rayon ribbon from other sources.
Okay, the next photo shows the three Magnolia stamps, flowers and bling. The Magnolia stamps were donated by the very generous Diana Crick of
Magnolia-licious and are: #3030 Tilda with big ribbon, #294 Tilda with balloon and #226 Birthday Tilda, all from the "You Are So Special" collection. The pink and purple flowers are also from Diana: Flower Patch, pink and purple. The other large packets of flowers are Recollections Boutique Fleur from Michael's and the smaller packs are Jolee's By You. The white pearls are Recollections. The pink pearls are KaiserCraft.
Next items include: an 8 x 8 paper pad by K & Co. in Julianne; Tim Holtz adage tickets; Cosmo Cricket Rub-A-Dub-Dub rub-ons; Mary Englebreit 3-D stickers; an Oriental chipboard pack and two friendship-themed wood mounted stamps by Hampton Arts.
Next items include: A Richard Simmons dessert cookbook; a recipe book for gourmet coffee-based drinks; a chocolate strawberry (strawberry flavored chocolate - yummy); hot cocoa scented body cream; a chocolate-scented candle; feathers; vintage beaded lace; silver charms and a packet of Jolee's By You pink button flowers.
This final photo shows the last of it: 6 sheets of Basic Grey Nook & Pantry cupcakes 12 x 12 paper (the back is delightful also); another small recipe booklet using boxed cake mixes; a Making Memories storage container and one piece of vintage sheet music with text in English and French. There is a series but this is only one of the series, entitled La Biche (the doe) from a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke (a favorite of mine).
And finally, the photo for the card challenge. You may use any aspect of this photo for your card. It does not have to be an exact interpretation. I just want to see how it inspires you to create a card. There is no right or wrong. Just have fun with it.
Okay, I got Inlinkz figured out. I am going to add two blue frogs. The first one is for those of you entering for the blog candy without making a card. EVERYONE should add her info here. The second frog is for those making a card,which as I said, gets you a second chance at winning.
Okay, this second frog is for those making a card also:
