Old enough to know better & Saturday candy



A very good morning to you all, time for another challenge at Allsorts and this week my teamie Tracy has come up with the great theme of 'Here Come the Girls'. so many possibilities here I am thinking.

I felt a bit of pink coming on and have used a really Old Stamps Happen image called Parisian Socialite which to me always says pink, funny how some stamps do things like that. I have a feeling the stamp may no longer be generally available as but I did find a link to it on Ideal World who seem to have it in stock so have added the thumbnail link below.

I repeat stamped a Hero Arts print stamp for the background and distressed the corners, coloured the image with watercolour pencils and added a bit of glitter. Some feather and flowers made with Tonic Peruvian Lily punch and stamp set and some Marianne leaves. The sentiment is years old and although it's wood mounted doesn't have any name on it, but I rather like it, fits my lifestyle so to speak !

I am pleased to announce the winner of last weeks prize on my Saturday post is Wedgie, well done please mail me with your full postal addy.

This week I have some pretty summery Hunkydory goodies and ribbons, 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

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

I absolutely love that sentiment with the image & the feather is just the icing on the cake....... The pink with the black is so seductively elegant with a hint of the naughtiness about it too.

fabulous chic image and a stunning design. janex

Tedz said...

Beautiful card Brenda. Thank you for the info re: eBosser. It seems there is an issue with trying to emboss thinner card and I have decided that if I need to deeply emboss with the SB after cutting, I will use my Big Shot with the no shims mat as the eBosser does leave an embossed shape.

Kat said...

scrappymo! said...

The sentiment is me to a T! Really enjoyed reading that...I think it also suits a person who at times has struggled with their health. It does flavour what you decide to focus on.
Your card is lovely and the feathers add just a wee touch of whimsy.
