Sweet Sweet Candy!

June must be my lucky month! I won the blog candy from Juli over at Cards by SweetPz! I am so happy to have won this great prize pack! I must first say a huge THANK YOU to Juli aka Sweet P! If you have not visted her blog you should stop by and see her awesome creations! I can't wait to use all these goodies on my projects!
I also was asked to join the design team for Cowgirl Up Stamps. We will be doing weekly challenges and I get to use some of the Cowgirl Up digi stamps! How awesome? It is my first time on a design team so I will be learning as I go!
Check in on Sunday for my first DT challege and play along!

What A Catch! Treasure Tempestwind

I hope everyone is having a great Father's Day today! I got a little crafting done this week after my new Sweet November stamp in the mail. I must give a big THANK YOU to Amy at A Thousand Sheets of paper for this gorgeous stamp along with the pearls, prima flower, ribbon, paper, glitter pen and card! I cannot believe that I actually won the blog candy Amy was hosting! As soon as I saw her beautiful mermaids I knew I would have to have one! I LOVE mermaids! The candy that Amy sent to me included the lovely Sweet November Treasure Tempestwind and Eddy rubber stamp, along with tons of other goodies! Seriously- how lucky am I? I will soon be collecting her three lovely Sweet November friends from All That Scraps!
I got the idea to have Treasure and Eddy in a bubble from Amy's card. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the white paper and to cut out the Hello greeting (from a Hello Kitty die.) I tried my hand at the cracked glass technique that is featured on the All That Scraps challenge on Treasure's tail fins. It gives her tail a nice vintage feeling, although it didn't crack as much as I wanted it to.

I also made a tattered rose from the scallop cut on the Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge. This is my first flower in this style and I think it actually turned out pretty good!
