Monday candy and a freebie for everyone


Image from the Enchanted Spring Design Sheet, you can get this image for free by following the link further down this post

Morning crafty Peeps, time to share my Monday DT pieces for Prickly Pear and Nicecrane Designs, I have lots to tell you but will try and keep it as brief as possible.

Today sees the return on my weekly candy, but I have changed to day from Saturday to Monday, it will work exactly the same with a winner being randomly selected from the weeks comments, just the start and finish days will be different to previously. And I have designed a new logo for it which you can grab here.
Check out below what you need to do to be in with a chance of winning, also there is a free image further down kindly donated by Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs. It is one of the images from the Enchanted Spring set which you may have seen in my posts earlier in the week and I have also made another using it above.

Using Large Call Lily GG0188

For my Prickly Pear DT piece I have used a new Sizzix flip die, I saw it advertised the other day and decided to buy it, it's a little small to what I am used to and makes a 5" x 5" square card, but that fits perfectly for the size that PPRS like for their booth display boards. I used the lovely Calla Lily on the outside of the flip panel and the April Shorwers GG0188 sentiment on the reverse. The DP is Teresa Collins and I just added some punched borders, ribbon and pearls. 

And just the one more share using another of the new Nicecrane fairy designs and a little experiment with the Sizzix die used above, I simply cut it twice, reversed the one on the right and joined in the centre and it gives a nice card roughly the size of an A5. The DP is BoBunny and the fairy poem is computer generated.



Taking a photo was a bit of a pain so a couple of close ups showing the sweet little fairies....aren't they cute, this from Mrs Non Cute I might add, also the Pan Pastel shading and a masked sun of course.

And here is the Enchanted Spring design.........................

This is your freebie which you can download here

Now for this weeks candy, exactly the same rules as previously...............
  • Post my Monday Candy Poppy logo on your blog sidebar with a link to my blog.
  • Leave a comment on any post between now and next Monday.....comments on two posts and names go into the draw again and so on.
  • Be a follower of my blog and please no candy only followers, I do check winners blogs and any non genuine ones will be discounted.
And finally, here is this weeks prize................

Art Deco stamp set and matching embossing folder

Phew, sorry it is such a long one but lots to say, hope you all have a good week.

Paula (PEP) said...

Your spot on my blog has the new banner! The eyelets with the ribbon & the cheesecloth all pull the mind back to days gone by when little girls had laced dresses & bonnets - so in keeping with your image on that first card. The second is my favourite with the lovely black detail which really catches the eye. The final card is very striking with your peach & orangery rust trims really adding beautifully to the whole framework of your tweaked die creation.
