Blog Candy Winner and a little love note

It has been an eventful weekend, as my router decided to die on Saturday morning and it took us all day Saturday to fix up a new one, and get back on the net! Think I had withdrawal symptoms... am I addicted - no emails, no blogging- no looking for stuff! Thankfully the wonderful team at Belkin work 24/7 and had us connected up again within minutes of us phoning them! Yah!
I have closed the comments for the blog candy now, and I am amazed by the number of entries-315! Then while writing this post, I couldn't access the comments, think blogger has problems
* more woe!* Anyway finally using Random Integrator , I have chosen a winner!
Congratulations and please email me ( on sidebar) so I can send your goodies to you :)
Thank you to everyone who has entered and there will definitely be more blog candy soon. It is such fun looking at everyone's blogs too!
Finally this week, Friday to be precise, The Lights and Brights alcohol inks arrived! Hurrah! I have them all in my shop now, and will ship anywhere in the world too ( just email me before you order for postage costs if you are overseas).
I thought I would have a play and make a little love note ( cut on the big shot) with them. I used 6 colours and incorporated the earth tones as well- Raspberry ( yum) Shell pink even yummier, Cool Peri, Wild Plum, Purple Twilight and Eggplant.
Try a light, a bright and an earthtone together on the same felt. I inked up the cover and used a little blender directly onto the glossy card. The little card was also done in the same way. Just too delicious colours for words! Finally playing with my alcohol inks are just complete!
I then used a set of Tim Holtz stamps I bought when I was in the States last month from Michaels, and are exclusive to them. They are tiny versions of his bigger stamps. Love little things! I used the Lost and Found set. All stamped in Archival Black ink. A little Glossy Accents on the numbers, a spinner and sprocket completed the love note and this is being popped into the bag of goodies too!

Have a scrumptious Bank Holiday Monday ( here in the UK it is May Day holiday) . I am off to garden and help make a compost bin with the OH( probably more help than hindrance!) , so may end up playing with more alcohol inks *lol*... and thank you for looking

Love this Jennie. I am a bit scared of alcohol inks LOL, that's why I don't have any. I love what you can do with them though.
I might be brave sometime and buy a few to have a try :)
