Happy Birthday Lynette - Sweet Pea Card Share and Blog Candy!

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! The weekend is almost here, yay! :) Any exciting plans for the weekend? I hope to get some crafting done (I still have tons of Valentine's Day cards to make). Hubby and I also have some errands to run but other than that, nothing too exciting here :) We ended up with six or more inches of snow here. The roads were okay yesterday though, they did a pretty good job plowing. It's still really cold though and we might get more snow tonight! Ugh, come on Spring! :)

Well, this week is Lynette's (the owner of Sweet Pea Stamps) birthday week!!! Lynette is SO wonderful to work with, she is truly a wonderful person and a wonderful friend and she has the best stamps around :) To celebrate her birthday, I decided to give away some yummy Sweet Pea Blog Candy so make sure to read to the end of the post for a chance to win.





For my card today, I decided to use this gorgeous new image illustrated by Meredith Dillman for Sweet Pea Stamps. You can see her beautiful work HERE. I love this image, it's so flowy and romantic. I decided to create a little "I love you" card for my hubby (I know, the card is very girly, I stink at making masculine cards so all of my husband's cards are very girly :) He loves them anyway though :) ). I colored this gorgeous image with copics and then sponged around the image with my Tim Holtz blending tool using SU's Pretty in Pink ink. I then added some Stardust Stickles to her wings. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the top piece of DP. For some finishing touches, I added pearls, a bow (tied with my Bow Easy) and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The beautiful sentiment is from the "You Had Me at Chocolate" stamp set from My Creative Time. What do you think?

Okay, now for the Blog Candy!!! Here is what you have a chance to win:






Yep, you can win all four of these gorgeous stamps. All you have to do to win is to leave a comment on this post by midnight EST on Monday, January 31. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you are the winner so I can get your address to mail out your goodies. Good luck to everyone. Whoever wins these beauties is one lucky lady :)

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful Friday and I will see you all back here soon.

Gorgeous! The coloring is great and I love that paper too. I am like you, lots of my cards to my hubby are a little girly, but he likes them, especially if the images are very detailed.
