It is time for some blog candy!

Hope everyone is having a great week. Beckett is recovering well from his tooth infection and I have actually managed to get a little bit of sleep this week, YAY!!!
Today I wanted to share another Halloween card I made with the new {Jena Witch} stamp set from Little Paper Shop. I just adore this little cutie. She is so fun to color. And for some reason I just can't help but add some glitter to her.

It has been a while since I gave away some blog candy so I put together a fun little package of goodies for one lucky blog reader. I will leave my blog candy open until Monday Oct 12th at 7 am CST. There are a few ways to get your name entered into the drawing:
#1. Just leave me a comment telling with favorite color combo - there is entry #1.
#2. If you are a follower of my blog, leave me a comment on this post telling me so and there is entry #2.
#3. Join the Little Paper Shop Forum and add me as a friend - there is entry #3
#4. Make a card with one of the FREE digi stamps found on the LPS forum and leave me a link to your card - this is entry #4

So there you go, there are 4 ways to get your name added to the drawing. Now, I suppose you want to see the blog candy. The blog candy consists of 2 super fun stamp sets from Little Paper Shop as well as 3 Studio G sets and some Making Memories Crystal brads. If I get more than 25 different people entered I will add some additional goodies!

Good Luck!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a fabulous day!

SCACD WCMD challenge

I hope you all had a great weekend. Did you get lots of stamping done on WCMD? Unfortunately we spent most of WCMD dealing with doctors and dentists. Beckett woke up Saturday morning with half of his face completely swollen. Unfortunately a couple weeks ago when he hit his chin at the hotel, he not only cut his chin open but he cracked a tooth. Ever since the accident his tooth can been bothering him but we just thought his jaw was sore from the fall. Unfortunately for 2 weeks the cracked tooth just got infected. Saturday afternoon after a trip to the urgent care and then to the emergency dentist he had to go through a very traumatic tooth extraction.
Here is a picture of him and his poor swollen face:
Thankfully the antibiotics and pain killers have helped out a lot. He seems to be doing a lot better today. He still looks awful but the swelling should start going down soon.
So with all of that craziness yesterday, my WCMD stamping had to be postponed until today.
I got a little bit of time to stamp this afternoon so I decided to play along with the challenge posted over on the SCACD blog. They had a fun 2 part challenge...sketch & color. The color requirement was to use Christmas colors: red, green, gold, silver, white.
Here is their sketch:
I flipped the sketch to work with my image. I used this adorable Victoria Case image "Matthew" from SCACD. Isn't he so cute...totally reminds me of Beckett. (Sorry for the wonky lighting - I just finished my card at 7pm and the natural light is zero. I'll try and take a better photo in the morning)
Check out the resemblance between the card and the picture of Beckett...the fact that he is wearing a red shirt with a green dino is a total coincidence.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all had a great weekend!
