OCL Blog Hop and Blog Candy with a Card Thrown in for Good Measure!




Our Craft Lounge is celebrating their Fall line of stamps and have included me along for the ride! Wanna know the best part? I get to play with their stamps AND I get to give away this wonderful "Shop til ya flop" set!

I know what your thinking...OCL is releasing 31 new sets and they are only giving away 1? (Ok, so maybe your not thinking that but it makes for good reading!) Not so! The girls over at OCL are generously giving away one of each 31 sets!! Yay! Free rubber (ahem, or acrylic)!!!

Here are your rules:

  • Leave me a comment at the end of this post with your contact information *this is very important because I have to report who the winner is to the OCL gang by a certain time*
  • IF there is no contact information left, I will re-draw another winner
  • The blog candy is open today until 6PM (pacific time) on August 9th
  • Feel free to enter all of the Blog Candies from the list below *but* you will only be able to win one set. If by chance your name is drawn twice then you will get to pick the set of your preference.
  • I will announce the winner here on my blog on August 9th and all the winners will be announced on the OCL blog on the same date.

And here is where you will find other wonderful sets:

Now, do you wanna see what I did with this fabulous set? I made Granny extra fablous and went a little crazy with some stickles...well, maybe extrememly crazy with said glitter glue! Granny's hat, shoes, jewllery, buttons, and flower centers all have sparkles...um so does all the wild wasabi matting...and...maybe just a few more sprinkles on the flower punches. Hee hee :)




So this Granny Fashionista is sporting prisma colour pencil crayon and gamsol everything! She chose her favourite minty green knit sweater and decided to punch up her ensemble with a lovely floral print dress in shades of citrus. I think we can all agree that Granny is somewhat of a trendsetter, expertly choosing shades that highlight her blue tinged locks of hair. *grin*




I *may* have been a little indescisive on the shape that I wanted for the main image, so that's why you see this rather unique tag-ish shape expertly made by me :) I was determinded to keep this mishap because I spent the time colouring it before cutting it out (big mistake on colouring it before hand!) Lesson learned! lol

Granny is my favorite.......even if I'm not a shopper!

Nicole said...

Great Card! I love HAPPY ACCIDENTS and your 'tag' shape is appropriate for the card! I mean, Granny IS shopping and of course shopping involves 'tags' of all shapes! It didn't even look like an accident to me! But, I do know what you mean, I am a copic colorer, and after you spend all that time using up those copics to make a PERFECT picture, you just have to remedy it somehow! HAHA!

Thanks for the chance to win! That is an adorable set! Hoosier Hugs, nicole

OMG, this set reminds me of my mom. She used to love to shop and spent so much time telling my DD that when she got bigger they'd 'go shopping for shoes' and she would giggle and kick. (explains her shoe fettish I think). I think my mom would have loved that set. I wonder if she was the angel inspiration?

My mom and I are both getting into coloring and stamping with our new Copic's. This is new to us because we had said from the start, "We will NEVER get into that stamping thing and those markers are such a waste of money!" Well, now we are doing both those things together. A lot of our friends would totally understand the sentiments in this set. I love what you've done! And your mistake turned out to be so NOT a mistake! Beautiful work!
