Being Cute....and BLOG CANDY!!!

It's promising to be another very full week, so I thought I'd post a Pure Innocence cutie!
I was over at my friend Shirley's a few weeks ago (when I still had time for a play day!), and she had just gotten a huge box of 'happy mail'.....this little darling was one of the many sets she had ordered, and I couldn't resist stamping her up to take 'on the road' to color!

Supplies: Basic Grey Hopscotch Paper Pack, Copic Markers, Tim Holtz Tye Dye Distress Ink, Flower by Recollections, Cardstock is from local craft store, Butterfly Punch is Martha Stewart.

You can find these darling stamps at Simon Says Stamp. You can probably find them many other places as well, but this is where I knew Shirley had ordered them from.

I haven't entered a challenge in a while, so I think I will enter this at:

One Stitch at a Time: Anything Goes
Craft us Crazy: Favourite Embellishment or something new
Crafty Creations: Anything Goes
Your Next Stamp: Pop it Up

OKAY~On to some blog candy! I am beginning to start some spring (summer?) cleaning in my craft room!
Leave a comment here, telling me what your one crafting addiction is...
if you go someplace to shop, what is it that you can't resist bringing home?
Stamps? Paper? Markers? Colored Pencils? Embellies???

What can you win?
Hop up to my "For Sale" tab...there is a dress form stamp there that has never been inky.
If your name is drawn, you win - it's that simple!

No, you do not have to become a follower to win, but I'd love it if you were! You will get one entry for your comment, and TWO additional entries if you are a follower!

I will draw a winner on Sunday, May 22nd. Watch for a winner on May 23rd!

That's all I have for tonight! Thanks so much for stopping by - see you on your blogs soon!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Food for thought: Never stop finding joy in the small things!

Love that cute little card. I am always buying ribbon. I just can't help myself. I love ribbons. I'm already a follower. Thanks for a chance to win.


Maryann Laursen said...

Your card is just sooo cute Patti, and these cute butterflies are wonderful and fits soo well to the image here.
I must admit, that I´m totally addicted to gorgeous paper and ribbons, and even I have loads of both, I always seems to bring more home, cause the ones I have is often too beautiful to cut in, cause then I wount have them anymore, so I always have to get at least 2 of each, so I always have one to spare he he he he.

Hi Patti,
Wow hun this is super adorable. Love the colours you've used. My addiction would have to be Tilda stamps - have to buy some from every new release - oh yes and flowers and ribbon. Gosh, I think I need to get out more!!
Of course I am already a follower and will remain so because I love your work.

adorable!!!! I love girly cards and you've mastered it with this one!!!

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

It's paper, paper, and more paper! I could not use all of this paper in 3 lifetimes! It's so bad that it includes digital paper or anything digital that I can use as paper! I am hanging my head in shame. However, I do so love your little girl. PI images are just adorable!

Chelsea said...

Lynn Mercurio said...

I love this card and just had to stop in to tell you so, even though I request not to be added in the pot for the blog candy. Your coloring is simple divine and I love the background you gave her.

It's always such a treat to stop by and see what you have been up to!


Amy Johnson said...

How adorable! Love the image, colors, and coloring. Cute flower too!

Patti! Your card definitely lives up to the sentiment! Cute is what you do too! Love it! Wish it was bigger when I click on it though... old eyes! lol TFS!

Dana said...

She is simply adorable Patti! I love it and that flower is scrumptious!!

Becky said...

Patti, she is adorable and so isn't that sentiment..:)
I am addicted to paper. I always just have to have that pack or that piece, but when I make a card I never have the paper I need. :)

Joan Ervin said...

I just love the little PI girl, Patti......what a cutie pie!!!! You did an awesome job on the coloring and what pretty paper in the background!!!!

Sandy Ang said...

Laurie Unger said...

Patti, this is just too cute! Awesome job coloring her!

Pat (mspfd) said...

So very precious! Love the neat design and gorgeous coloring. What a great card.

Super cute card, Patti! I can see why you just had to take one of these for the road -- she's darling! I really like the way you sponged the background in behind her -- it makes her stand out so beautifully! My crafting addiction is definitely paper -- I have way more than I need, but am always excited to find more! :-)

Patti P. said...

Patti, this is such an adorable the way you colored her and the rose in her cheeks (I never can get that right) I am probably addicted to paper and ribbon...but won't turn down much of anything, especially if I get a deal and I love it. Sorry about your daughter's foot, but hope she feels much better soon and doesn't need the surgery.

Shirley said...

Too too cute and pretty for words!

Crystal said...

AWWWW this soooooo cute Patti, oh my goodness I SOOOO LOVE these colors and you totally rocked coloring this image sweetie!!! Thanks gf for joining us at Your Next Stamp!!!!

Lynne in NI said...

Awww what a cutie! Such a pretty colour combo and I love the effect of your sponged grass
My addiction ... probably stamps and markers, and anything shiney!

Netty said...
