just thinking of you & blog candy winner

I just love the beautiful flourishes in the Embellishments stamp set.  You can create such pretty stamped papers with them.  I used one of the stamps from the set and stamped it on lemon tart cardstock with black ink.  Then, I sponged edges with the tea dye duo inks.  I created another denim flower using one of the beautiful blooms dies and some scrap denim from a pair of my son's old pants.  A little ribbon and crocheted lace finish off my card.

Okay, on to the blog candy winner.  Thank you so much to everyone for the sweet comments you leave and for visiting my blog.  Your support means the world to me.  I wish I could send blog candy to everyone!  The winner of the Damask Designs stamp set is:

Here are your random numbers:

Good grief ... a denim flower ... That is stinking cute, and easy. You inspired me to go into my craft cave and try it myself - AWK! That is too cute. Thank you so much for the inspiration. My son's jeans are not safe now. I so appreciate reading your blog. I have lurked for a long time. I do love your color combinations as they speak to my heart. God bless you.
