Candy Winner and Holiday Peekers!

Hip Hip Hooray!  It's Friday!!!  Can you tell that I'm not as cranky as I was when I wrote my last post?  Things haven't changed much, except for my ATTITUDE...  Sometimes I just need a kick in the butt to get me straightened out again! LOL

Not only is it Friday, but I also get to announce the NEW RELEASE by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD!  The darling Holiday Peekers are now available!!!  There are four of these cuties as well as three mini stamps created by our very own, oh-so-talented, Carolyn!!!  Thanks bunches, Sweetie.  You did an awesome job!  : )

You can find all the links to the Designers showcasing the NEW Holiday Peekers on the Store Blog.  Be sure to check it out!  For UK/Europe friends, Quixotic Paperie also carries these fabulous exclusive stamps!

Now... may I introduce you to Reason for the Season by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD...

Can you hear the angels singing?  
Silent night, Holy night. All is calm, all is bright...  Such beautiful music : )

Copics used:  R27 R24 R22 R20; G28 G24 G21 G40; Hair - E49 E59 E25 E53; Skin - E11 E00 R20; E57 E55 E53 E51 E50; YR24 Y15 Y13; BG13 BG11 BG10.  

The ornaments, sheep, Baby Jesus' blankie and the centers of the snowflakes on her top all received a nice glob of Stardust Stickles.

I chose this DP because it has snowflakes!  
It's from the 6x6 Holly Jolly Christmas paper pad by Echo Park *Here*  

I've included two homemade buttons  - the large white button threaded with Gold floss and the small gold button on the center of the snowflake.  The small button used to be Blue/Green Crystal Gel, but I painted it gold and then gave it a thick coat of Gold Glitz Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint.  I won't go through the steps on how I made them, but you can see the tutorial on making molds and embellishments using Crystal Gel / Modeling Creme *HERE*  I LOVE making my own embellishments : )

I also got to use my NEW Spellbinders dies : )  
The Classic Large Circle is layered over the Picot Edge Circle 

I've used only 1 of the 5 dies you get with the Create a Flake Three Shapeabilities set which I edged in NEW 'Diamond Range' Gold Ultra Fine Flower Soft.  The beautiful white flower also received a Gold Ultra Fine Flower Soft bath lol.  I thought it helped to tie it all in... 

Challenges Entered:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes!
Outlawz - Copic/Anything Goes!
Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes!
Stamps + Fun - #66 Anything Goes!
Ooh La La - #89 Punches/Dies


Thank you everyone for your candy ideas...they were yummy : )  Just in case you noticed that there were 42 comments for the Surprise Candy, but I've only included 41 - there was a duplicate comment which I skipped over as I counted to the winning number which is:

That's YOU, Linda!  Yay!!!
You can find my email on my sidebar : )  
Please get in touch with me by Sunday, October 2

Now please don't be too upset if you didn't win this time...there certainly will be many more chances!  If you missed my A Present for You! post, you'll WANT to check that out *HERE* - there might be something yummy hidden there too : )  I am expecting a shipment from Susana today and I know that the *something* is in there!!!

As always, thank you so much for coming to say 'Hi!'  I hope to get a chance to have some time to visit you this weekend and see what you've been up to!!!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~
