Hooray for Blogging Friends

Well, thanks to Pam S. we have an ID on the sweet image in the card that Kellie included with the blog candy.    The image is from C.C. Designs, by Amy Young, and is available at All That Scraps.

She is by Amy Young for C.C. Designs, and is a Sweet November - Twisted Sisters - Azalea - stamp. 

Pam, thanks.  I would not have begun to know where to look!

Kellie's blog candy arrived

Kellie mailed my blog candy winnings from Australia on Sep.13th.  Would you believe that I got the parcel on the 16th?  It was like Christmas here.  You can see all the goodies that were included if you go back two posts I think, maybe three.  It is an amazing assortment of wonderful stamps and bling.  She also enclosed a hand-made card which is adorable.  I do not recognize the image, however.  Perhaps someone who reads this will recognize it and let me know.  Kellie, if you read this, I am overjoyed, and will have great fun with all these new toys.  Thank you to Kellie and to Holley for my recent blog candy wins.  I am sorry the image is not the best.  I did not have the best lighting when I took the photo today.  Who is this charmer???

I won some more blog candy!

I cannot believe it.  I actually won some more blog candy, this time on Holley's blog.  There were lots of winners, so the wealth was kindly spread among many, but I won a Recollections Zoolicious stamp set.  Kellie's blog candy from Australia has not arrived yet, but now I have two packages to await.  What fun - like Christmas!  Here is the photo of everything Holley offered.  The Recollections set is towards the right side, under the book that says "Heritage".

ADDENDUM:  The blog candy arrived on 9-11 and the stamps are so cute - photo below the one from Holley's blog.  The blog candy from Australia, from Kellie's blog, will be on its way as of Monday.

Magnolia with Vintage Roses

This card was made for the August "mingle" on the Magnolia-licious yahoo group.  I did not want to post the card until I knew it had been received. 

For this image, I used Magnolia with Vintage Roses, #3004.  This item is currently out of stock at Diana's Magnolia store but is on re-order.  I am sure Diana could give you an idea of when it is expected and you can contact her here

This is one of my favorite Magnolia images and I have used it many times.  For this "mingle", I made another easel card which I really love.  Someday I will make a stash of heavy envelopes for them.  Thanks for stopping by to see my card.  I am always appreciative of your kind comments.
