A card and a shout out about some yummy candy!!

My kids have a friend over so leaving me alone so thought I would catch up on some postings and tidy up my blog!! Needed to throw out some wrappers on some candy (as winners have already been announced and I have a couple of cards to share!! One of them is a friends birthday card who I am hoping has received it today otherwise she will probably see it on here first!! :) So I will share my cards first then I will tell you about some candy on offer at a few blogs that I love to visit!!

 I made this card for a 6th birthday party but when I showed the boys the next morning  I decided it wasn't right for a 6 year old... so Liam ended up making his own card for is friend!!! But I do love this card!! Nice and bright and I'm sure someone will love it when I give it to them!!!
I think the spotty paper I used for the background is echo park and the image is a Dustin Pike image. I coloured it in with my Tria markers ( B555, R445, O277,V245, G555, C446, B128, Y156, V518) I also used a red and blue glitter pen.  The cardstock is just scraps from the every growing pile that I have!!

This is just a side view so you can see the depth of the card!

I'm entering this into the folllow challenges
* Crafts and Me - Birthdays

This is the card I made for Sam!! I have known Sam since high school and only in the past couple of years did we realize we had a similar passion for paper crafts (Sam is way better than me though). So this is the card I made for Sam's birthday. It was actually a pretty simple card to put together but I really loved the end result! The flower paper is from Kaszazz. iI then just cut the fence from another Magnolia stamp and sat Tilda in cute skirt on it.  I coloured Tilda in with my tria's (BL, R247, C847, O729, M428, O528, O535, O225) Then I just added some rhinestones to the bottom of the card and some kindyglitz to the flowers and butterfly! oh and the punch I used was the SU eyelet border punch!

I am entering this into the following challenges:
* 2 sisters Challenge - Birthdays
* Allsorts - Free and Easy July
* Bling it on - Anything Goes
