Artistic Philosophy

Reality has limits but our imagination does not, so let it run free and your creativity will flourish.

My imagination helps me create unique work as I strive to produce beautiful things and grow in capability, experience and confidence. My goal as I travel this journey of creativity, is to share my work and inspire others so that they themselves, may create something distinct and original too.

Candy for the BIG 100

Well here we are at another Monday and I can't for the life of me work out where the week went again.  Ah well no point in worrying about it.  I do hope today finds you all doing ok and in fairly good health.  I am just glad we haven't gotten together or I would be blaimed for the few people with sore throats (it wasn't me...LOL).  Those of you who are suffering, I do hope you get better soon.  I won't lie, mine is still here and driving me bananas as I am now coughing all the time and my chest is starting to complain.
Right then, without further ado and chattering from me (that would be a first!!) lets get on with the show.  I put all the names into a hat and.........

 
 my thank you Surprise Package of Ribbon and Lace goes to ......................

CHRISTINE HARROP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations Christine and thank you for your lovely comments over the past week.
Please email me with your address and I will get your package off to you asap.

May I take this opportunity to say Thank You to everyone that takes the time to leave me comments.  I wish I could afford to send you all something.  But who knows; I am sure, over time, I will get something to alot of you!

Now onto the two Candy prizes for the BIG 100 draw.   I hope you will excuse my photographs, I am no window dresser and really struggled to make them look pretty.  I was so tempted to just drop them from a height and see how they landed and then take the picture..... but I thought better of it as knowing my luck the embellishments would have been scattered from here to the dogs bed,.... and I did not want to have to fight to get them back!!!!  (My little yorkie loves to try anything.  She is such a greedy little monkey..ha ha!)

The Stamping and Colouring Prize consists of:


Perfect Medium Ink Pad
Dusty Concord Distress Ink Pad
6 Vivid Promarkers (inc one skin tone)
Sheet of Cut n Dry Foam
Special Touch of Magic Mask
6Sheets Watercolour paper (heavyweight)
12 Sheets Promarker paper
A5 Sheet of Anna Griffin Floral and Border stamps
Kanban Background and Lace Border stamps


The Embellishments Prize consists of:

7 of my Decorative Stick Pins
11 x 2.5meters (min) Organza & Satin Ribbon
Small, medium & large Prima paper flowers
Lilac & Blue ribbon flowers
Solid Brass Christmas Tree & Holly charms
Net of padded hearts in Red, Gold & Silver
2 sprays of beaded wires (Red & Blue)

Not showing but included:- 
Card of pearly buttons
Card of my handmade embellishments (see sat post for picture)


What do you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one of the above?  Easy peasy - just be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment under this post! 
As soon as we get to 100 followers, I will do the draw for TWO WINNERS!!  I do hope you like the prizes.
(If you could advertise this candy on your blog I would truly appreciate it, but it is not a condition of entry.) 
Well that's it for now.  I am hoping to feel a little better later on today, so that I can actually sit long enough to make some cards.  Fingers crossed.
Have a great day all.  Hugs Linda xx

  9. Hi Linda,
    congrats to Christine. She is a lucky lady today. I hope she has lots of fun using your wonderful candy. Maybe we will see something of hers with it used one day. Now down to the Big 100, candy you are a very generous lady, as I know your not sponsored by anyone to do this. I for one think the candy pictures are really good. Well that's it for now having trouble thinking of things to say. I know that's unusual for me as I do waffle on a bit. Have a great crafty day everyone.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  13. Hi linda, Thankyou for the opportunity to go into the draw for these wonderful prizes...:) I love your stick pins.. I often make my own, but not with the beautiful beads you use..You have now got me looking at everything in a different light after looking at your blog yesterday..:) My daughters had some Bucks Fizz yesterday to celebrate something, and I thought "Ooh I could use the metal cork stopper as an embellie"..Just cut parts of the prongs off and it looks great cos the middle is like a big brad!! My daughters will be groaning cos I'll be "hoarding" even more stuff now...lol..Anyway, I digress... Enjoy your day and hope you feel bit better soon...xxx

  17. Hi Linda! Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower and sharing my give-away. I'm more than happy to become your follower as well. I'm also going to tell my BFF to stop by today and become your follower. You asked how I found your blog, and since I've "slept since then", I can't remember for sure, but I was on someone else's blog who mentioned you. So I had to stop by, and I'm sure glad I did. I love your blog!
    Have a blessed day!
