New card and Candy news!

Wow Blogger is really proving to be a problem this week. I finally got my posts back but all my comments are gone and I assume my comments left on other blogs are gone now too. Arrgh! this is so frustrating......
Challenge 98 over at MAWTT is being hosted by Brenda from Bumblebees and Butterflies and sposored by Crafty Emma's store. Brenda has Chosen 2 B's for the challenge so it needs to include 2 things that begin with B. Brenda is also having a having a little Blog candy giveaway for her birthday and reaching 201 followers! You can check it out over on her blog here. I have never played in this challenge blog before but since I love Brenda's blog I decided to have a go and created this card.
For this card I used the same image as on my ATC's this week. I just love these stamps and colouring them with my grey Promarkers and a spot of red. I also used 7 Gyspies paper, Tim Holtz Tissue tape, a metal Button and some thread tied in a bow. The Birthday stamp is a miscellaneous wood mounted stamp we have had for ages.
I am entering this card into the MAWTT challenge 98 Two B's
My B's for this challenge are Boys(in the stamp)Black(Black and white colouring and papers), Button, Bow(in the button), Birthday sentiment, Balloon and Birds (in the sky).
Now I am off to fight some more with Blogger. Have a great weekend and Thanks for stopping in. Angela

Thankyou for the plug Angela, that's really sweet of you. I too have lost comments and I had to re-post my Give-Away but I have the emails of comments for it so I can use those for the people who are not listed anymore - thank goodness for small mercies eh?
This is another fabulous creation and I'm really chuffed you are entering it for our MAWTT challenge. I love the background papers and the limited palette draws your eye straight to the image.
Thanks for joining us at MAWTT and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Lovely card Angela. With the red balloon over the shades of black and white it looks like the advert where the woman who wants to be noticed wears the red dress!!!! Fabulous

A beautiful card Angela, love the grey with a splash of red. I've been having trouble with commenting, sometimes it works and sometimes it won't bring up the box. :-) xx


Love the background paper and the adorable image. The touch of red really makes the image "pop".
Thanks so much for joining us at MAWTT this week. Hugs, Sylvia xx
