LPS card and BLOG CANDY!


How AWESOME is this birdhouse! This is from the set 'Delightful Garden' from Little Paper Shop. It will be released April 18th. Do you want to know what the best part of this is??? You can win this stamp and the lovely set that compliments it! How generous is Julia??? Julia and Allison will also be giving away different LPS sets!

I am addicted to quotes, I think the right quote can help any mood. SO, all you have to do is comment on this post with one of your favorite quotes! You are allowed one quote/comment per day and I will be using the Random Number Generator to pick the winner on April 18! So make sure you come back daily to see each new card I post and to add your daily quote. That's right, it's a week's worth of Little Paper Shop!

But remember to comment your quotes on this post!

This card is a fun and quick note card! I actually made about 10 of these to give to my mom for Mother's Day! As aforementioned they use the bird house and bird from 'Delightful Garden'. I colored it with the following copics: G24, E33, YR04, YR09, YR14, Y000. The white parenthesis rub-ons are from American Crafts.

ETA: Make sure you stop by tomorrow for another chance to enter to win this card AND a brand new COPIC tutorial using Little Paper Shop stamps!!! I haven't done one in a while because I have been so busy, but after turning in two huge papers, I have a more time to share with you!

As always,
Enjoy!

This is pretty neat ~ I'm enjoying reading the quotes that have been listed. Mine for today is: 'Pretty is as Pretty does...' (I'm actually bad at quotes, so I'm thinking that's it...)

Funny story quote inspired... there is a boy named Lucas in my dd's class & everytime I see him I think... 'Luke, I am your father' ~ but I change it to Luke, I am not your mother.... my daughter isn't too amused by that...

mudmaven said...

My friend and stamping buddy Kathy, puts this quote on her emails and I just love it:

"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend; inside of a dog, it's too dark to read"

Monika in VA said...

Ok, I'm inspired by this little Blog Candy 'quote' contest...so today's quote is: Stop & smell the roses ~ as I get older I'm learning how fast life is flying by ~ my dds are growing so fast & I just don't know how it happens ~ so every once in awhile I just have to remind myself to 'stop & smell the roses' ~ make some good memories of what is happening today & stop rushing & worrying about tomorrow. I tell the girls that we are making 'good' memories! (a good digital camera helps as well ~ sparks the 'ole brain).

Ok I've rambled enough ~ Hope everyone makes some good memories today!

Kim said...
