Summer .... I wish! - Addicted To Stamps DT Card & More CANDY :)

 Good morning peeps,
I don't know where the last few days have gone! Ali & I had a craft day on Thursday which was lovely, full of the usual waffle & gossip & I'm sure it was the first time we didn't end up yelling at each other, or did we, we do it so much I loose track lol.
I had the bright idea of "cataloguing" my Magnolia stamps by stamping them all twice (one for reference & one for masking) & storing the images in a folder according to type e.g standing Tilda's, sitting Tilda's, backgrounds etc to make it easy for me to see them as several times I have bought duplicates not realising I already have them, but I had a bit of a shock when I realised what a mammoth task that will be! Four hours in after lots of "aaaah she's pretty" and black hands from the ink I think I'm almost half way through stamping my standing Tilda's, and I think I may need to buy a bigger folder lol.

Today I have a card to share which is my 
DT card & this fortnight our challenge is

I am also blogging my card as a midway reminder for

As I have been a terrible blogger while battling the side effects of my new painkillers & you have been so lovely leaving me encouraging comments I have a little thank you to share which is more mini candy, a brand new Belles & Whistles stamp
 Fairy Wishes
There is no need to advertise it peeps just leave me a comment to let me know you want to be entered in the draw and I will announce the winner in a few days.
I have changed my comments to the pop up box as some peeps said they are having problems with the embedded comments, trust me to be different I've had problems with pop up's lol.

  17. What a fabulous card. Your colouring is superb. I would very much like to be entered into your draw for the stamp. Thank you for the chance to win.

  18. Wow - love you bright colors of blue and pink ! Have never seen those stamps before (it's been a while since I bought Magnolia, kind of trying to use the ones I have - while I still remember what I have... LOL). "Cataloguing" the stamps is always a good idea. I have but my mounted stamps on the wall on small shelves, but the unmounted is a different story. Having them mainly in black binders bought from Sunday Int (but I think they are no longer manufactured) and labeled outside, but...

    Would very much like to get a ticket in your lovely give-away. Thanks for the chance. (I have a candy too if you want to join)

    Have a nice Sunday !
    :-) Nina

    PS - about problems with comments. I had the same problem and changed the settings like you did. BUT I think the problem is/was related to Internet Explorer (IE), I changed to Google Chrome and have no problems now....

  19. OMW your colouring is once again STUNNING!! Tilda looks as if she just walks in Bombay and the elephant is great looking too!!! Hope you will feel a lot better soon and good luck with your mega-task sorting out your stamps, lol!!!
