The Power of Advertising and a Card.

Thought I'd better pop something on today as I've been a little busy lately! In fact, I've been busy moderating comments. I can't believe how many people have entered my little candy! I was thinking I'd maybe get 30 or so comments if I was lucky, and I've got nearly 10 times that amount already! In hindsight I would have put a Mr Linky on! I was going to put all the names in a hat and get my son to pick out 2, but I think Mr Random.Org will have to put in an appearance for the draw!
I want to send out a BIG hearfelt thanks for my blogging buddies who very kindly took the time to post and advertise my candy on their blogs, it's very much appreciated.
Back to card making. I did manage to make a couple of cards over the weekend, and I'll post the other one
later in the week, as it's for someones birthday and I know she hasn't received it yet.
I'm not sure if I like the colours on this card, look a bit weird to me!
List of Goodies:
The image stamp is of course a Manga from
Sugar Nellie, DP is MME Quite Contrary (Mary, Mary) from Jill at The Hobby House, roses are from
Wild Orchid Crafts, MS trellis punch. She's coloured with DI's.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
