Sweet Days of Summer and Blog Candy

Today is Flourishes last day of sneak peeks of the August release. I have some exciting news and blog candy, before we get to that a few reminders:
The Sunset Challenge is going on and your chance to win the entire release, all 4 stamp sets.
Today we have our Mystery Blogger, by commenting on ALL the Design team blogs you have a chance at winning the set of the day.
The Release Bundle is all 4 sets at a discount of 10% and is for a short time.
Our FLIP Program is starting a new year and a great gift for those that join.
The NEW 1,2,3 create kit is called Trendsetter. Beautiful kit and only a few so make sure to get it first.
Now for my exciting news! I submitted a card on a submissions call to Crafting Ireland magazine and they accepted my creation. Very excited as this as this is the 3rd issue. They have some great tutorials and ideas. I hope you check out the magazine and my blog candy farther down. This is the card I submitted below using the new set Sweet Days of Summer. The beautiful Spellbinders Parisan Accents with a ribbon bow tied off my sentiment tag perfectly. The tags also used Spellbinders Nested Pennants and I just cut the white one down to make it a bit shorter.The water splashing about does have some sparkle added to it.


How sweet is this one? I adore kraft paper however I don't have any other than the memory Box Valise paper pack that was screaming for me to use it. I like when my paper talks to me. ha ha For the lattice framing on the top and bottom Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Rectangles have a great edge. I basically cut off the edges of the two long sides and used them as the edges, great idea I think. Finish it off with a bit of pink plaid ribbon and twine.
Now for the blog candy. Since they accepted my creation using the new set Sweet Days of Summer that is the set you will recieve along with some Basic Grey, Memory box papers, new primas that Flourishes is carrying, ribbons, pearls and fancy brads. Just leave me a comment on this post before Tuesday August 16th 5 pm Central time and your name will be in the drawing! Good Luck!
