Happy Halloween Owl....Oh Yeah Some Blog Candy Too!

You came on a great day to my blog! In honor of my blog hitting 50,000 views I'm giving 3 of my favorite things away! Stamps, punches and Rhinestones!! I'll draw a winner for the blog candy on Friday at noon, MT time so make sure you get your entries in by then!!! You can enter 2 ways leave a comment on this post or email me. I've been told by a couple of people that they can't leave comments on my blog so if you find that's the case just send me an email then, If you do enter via email please put Blog Candy is the subject line so that I don't accidentally delete it :) Please only one entry per person. To enter please tell me what you would like to see more of on my blog.

So do you want to know what you might win??? For the Stamps, the Picture This Stamp set in wood mount. It was a hostess stamp set in the Spring Mini Catalog, it's super cute and I LOVE it!! The punch is one of my all time favorite punches-the Scallop Border Punch, I know it's not the new punch design, I'm sorry but it's an awesome punch and I use mine tons!!! And last but certainly not least my FAVORITE new accessory. The adhesive Rhinestones! They're just so awesome! Once you use them, you'll LOVE and use them FOREVER!!!! So you have until Friday to enter! Good Luck!!

I do have a project to show you today too. I've been playing with my Owl Punch again and he's just so cute! You can't get enough of him!!!
I stuck him to a little Halloween card. I don't own any Halloween stamp sets. I don't do a lot of stamping for Halloween and last year I did invest in 2 Halloween stamp sets and then SU retired both of them :( So since it's not a holiday I stamp regularly for I'm not sure if I'll invest in more. But with the owl who needs a stamp set?!

There's not a lot to explain on the card. Yes I brought out my color spritzer for this card. I wanted to spritz the background in black but my black marker is having major issues. So I switched to an Old Olive marker and that seems to work ok. My vision was in black but that may have to wait until I get a new black marker.

I love the BIG eyes on him! And his vest or chest, is stamped with a new stamp set from the Holiday Mini catalog. It's actually a pumpkin but I just wanted the pattern and it's super cute!!
Stamp Sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Paisley Prints
Ink: Basic Black, Pear Pizazz, Old Olive
Accessories: 2 Step Bird and Owl Punches, Big Shot, Top Note Die, Pear Pizazz Ribbon, Color Spritzer, 2 way glue, Dimensionals, Rhinestones
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!

Oh, I do love your owl. And stamping on his chest gives a great effect.

I've subscribed to your blog as you have some wonderful techniques here.

I would be interested in seeing ideas for making books, booklets or different ideas for pockets on cards.

Thanks for the chance to join in the great blog candy.
