Soft and Sweet Melinda....and some Blog Candy!!!


I have some yummy candy to give away, but first, the card!!! I love the Melinda line of Guardian Angels from Whiff of Joy and this one hugging the heart pillow is especially sweet!!!

I wanted the card to be soft and sweet and tender like the image, so I pulled out a tiny flower print from the Nana's Nursery stack by DCWV and also the coordinating polka dot dp. I used Very Vanilla textured cardstock for the square base and the accent cardstock is Cameo Coral. I decided to add a circle of dp to the layout to take a break from all the squares and rectangles and sharp corners.




I used my Copic markers to colour and shade her, added some glitter brads, some shiny new Primas and some satin ribbon. The sentiment is from a wonderful new set by CCDesigns and I pop dotted that and the main image. I added Stardust Stickles to her wings to make her all angelic and glittery and she's done!! Do you like??

Wanna hear something exciting?? No, not the blog candy...something else!!! Beginning on Wednesday of this week, there will be a Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog up and running with fun challenges for all!!! Be sure to check it out tomorrow!!

Now for the blog candy....yaaaaaaaay!!! Katharina was so generous in providing a lovely stamp to share with one lucky winner!! All you have to do is leave a comment here in this post by midnight EST on Monday, September 29th!!! That's it...pretty simple!! Wanna know what you could win?? Melinda blowing Kisses!!! She's so adorable!! I used her on this card, in case you wanted to see what she looks like all stamped up!!

Now I'm off to work all day!! Hope you have a great one!!
