Blog Candy Winner and a few bits and pieces

It has been a whole week since my last post and to be honest I have done very little besides go to work. The heat left me rather lethargic. The weekend has brought a reduction in temperatures here and I have felt a little more creative. I have completed a few small cards including this one.
The flower stamp is one of the Inkylicious Twinchies, a bargain at £1, but only currently available at shows. I stamped and them coloured in with promarkers, thinking of the Bellis that Steve's Dad grew until a couple of years ago. I love any daisy-type flowers and I knew this would be lovely as a background or a focal image. I can see I will use it lots!
So onto the Blog Candy. I put the names in a pot and pulled out a winner.  The winner is... Mags! Please email me with your postal address, Mags, so I can send you the Molly Blooms stamps. My email is on my profile page.  I have been rather lucky on the Candy front today myself, winning a huge stash of Crafty individuals products, so a big thank you to Jean and Malcolm. Perfect timing to be having a play too!
Finally, I will share a few sunset photos with you, taken in our garden as I have been trying to cool off a bit!

Thanks for looking! I will be having some more blog candy (not cute this time!) very soon.

I know you'll enjoy the CI stamps so well done. Your card is delightful & a real inspiration. I love the way you've kept the background crisply white.
I too love daisies & anything like them. The sunsets are spectacular at this time of year here too & you've captured them beautifully in the photos.

A beautiful card Sally, they certainly look like bellis daisies to me. I have bought some of the small £1 stamps at the shows but I'm not sure if this is one of them. Congratulations on your mega win, have fun playing.

It's been far too hot to do much at all hasn't, Sally. Cooler today though and raining so the garden is getting a good drink at last.
Love your pretty flowers, must look out for that stamp at the next show!!
Enjoy the summer hols.
Hugs Lisax
