In the garden & Saturday candy



Good Morning to you all, thanks for your kind comments this week and being so understanding that I have not been able to blog very much. But I think things are improving with my mobile world and yesterday I was able to go in the garden without everything seeming to be on the move so fingers crossed it keeps that way.

At Allsorts this week Catherine has come up with the theme of 'In the Garden', another one that's played right into my hands. Luckily I created this one a few weeks ago, I usually work several weeks ahead with my DT work 'just in case' and when I have a week like this one I know it's the right theory for me.

And as our sponsor is Ruth from A Passion for Stamps I was able to indulge in some of her lovely stamps and punches. I started with a background of Dylusions and the obligatory spritz of Glimmer Mist to get a bit of sparkle going on, then I randomly over stamped with Visible Image diamond and script stamps and a Penny Black sentiment. 

Next I stamped ivy and fuchsias from the Pick of the Bunch stamp sets, bleached out the colours and then pained Twinkling H2'0's. Finally some lace and ribbon and flowers made with the Pick of the Bunch Carnations punch and stamp set. So a bit of floral inky indulgence which I thoroughly enjoyed.


The winner of last Saturday's candy is Lorraine, congratulations please mail me with your full postal addy so I can post your goodies off to you.

And this week I have a set of Gorjuss girl stamps, as usual a winner will be selected at random from all comments left this week, if you visit more than once then all comments will go into the draw. All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is:

1) Be a follower 
2) Pop the Saturday Candy logo from my sidebar on your own blog

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

  18. So pleased that you are feeling a bit better but take care as an unsteady world is a bit of a hazard. I absolutely love that little butterfly & the effect you created with the whitework around those leaves.

  37. Evening Brenda, just wanted to pop over and say thank you. The comment your left on my Guest DT really cheered me this morning - I got myself into a right state about it not being good enough, one of the fibro emotional issues is that I can be OCD with my creations and dabblings.
    I wondered if anyone else did that with their DT creations - on one of them I get my creation made as soon as I get the digi and on my challenge blog I tend to make the things at least two/three months in advance. It helps when I'm having bad fibro and RA days - nice to hear I'm not the only one!
    I love this, must try to buy some Dylusions at the end of the month, my wish list is getting huge lol! Keep well and take time to smell the roses Karen x
