Make it Colourful Special Challenge and Blog Candy!!!!

Hi everyone. As promised I am back today with some 'thank you' BLOG CANDY. I recently noticed just how many hits I had on my blog and I am very thankful to everyone who visits and who follows my blog.

Before I get to the candy I want to share a card with you that I made for Make it Crafty's special celebration challenges. There are 5 challenges running on Make it Colourful for the whole month of July and this card would qualify for 2 of them 1) Merge Make it Crafty images and 2) Colour using the MiC logo colours.

For those of you who haven't heard - On July 14, Zoe and Christy, and their teams, will be releasing a  collection of Victorian and Steampunk images for the event "Mix and Match with Make It Crafty and Tiddly Inks." There are some fabulous sneak peeks on both blogs and on Facebook and by the looks of it this is one you don't wanna miss!!! See ya there!!!! 

For this scene I used Dylan, Sandy, Ebony and the Sandcastle
 I merged them all together and then flipped them... for some reason they looked better {proportionally} once I did this.. strange, lol. 

My papers are scraps from Basic Grey, Bazzil Mustard cardstock and Blue cardstock from The Paper Mill and they have all been machine stitched.

The Waltzingmouse Stamps sentiment has been stamped onto a shaped transparency with Tuxedo Black Momento. 

I did the clouds in the background using a handcut template, Tumbled Glass distress ink and an ink blender. 

Copics - way too many to list. I will try to get a photo of them later :)

Challenges -
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - A Stitch in Time
Dream Valley Challenges - Summer theme
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes
2 Sisters - Summer Fun
Crazy 4 Challenges -  Summer Themed 
One Stop Craft - Summertime
Totally Gorjuss - Summertime
Card Makin' Mamas - Summertime
     Totally Papercrafts - The Beach

And now -  THE CANDY!!!

Just setting up my first blog so not sure if correct but email will reach me. La La Land stamps are lovely for newcomers to copics to use with nice open spaces and no feral curly hair (love Zoe and make it crafty but some of her hair frightens me). I would love to win candy and am a card to enter.
