Framed Friends/Blog Candy!!


Happy New Year!  Can you believe it is 2009?   
2008 went by so fast, I only hope this one will go by a little slower...my children are just growing too fast.

I made this card using the new stamp set from Gina K. Designs: Framed Friends, designed by Asela Hopkins.  These images are adorable and I look forward to making more cards with this cute set. I used the colors Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal and some retired designer paper from SU.  The dots were made using a stamp from the set Polka Dots and Paisley.  I do not have Copics (and do not foresee investing in them, however, if someone gave them to me, sure I'd take them ;o)...), so I colored the image with my cheap Bic It markers.   


I popped the bug image up on a stamp dimensional and he stands out just so stinkin' cute! Please ignore the smudge of the stickles, I think I touched it before it was quite dry (and yes, I am one to touch a wall when a sign says: "Wet Paint").  Well, how about we get on to the good stuff???  How would you like to win a set of your very own?


I just happen to have an extra Framed Friends (brand new) and would love to give it to one of you.  Just leave a comment on this post by 11:59 pm Tuesday, January 6th, and I will have my daughter pick a random winner from a basket of entries and post it here on my blog on Wednesday.  The winner will have 24 hours to contact me or my daughter will draw another name.   I know you will love this set, I think it is just perfect for Valentines Day...which is right around the corner!
