MY FIRST BLOG CANDY!!! ~A Few of My Favorite Things~

I wanted to do some blog candy for my blogaversary last month, but had to get my act together and order some stuff. I decided to offer a few of my very favorite things! I have been using a Stardust pen for years, and I think they are indispensable. They are the quickest, easiest and most economical way I know of to add instant and beautiful shimmer!!

My sister was at CHA the year Glimmer Mist came out, I believe, and she got me my first bottle as soon as they were available. I have lots of Glimmer Mist now, and my go to color is Antique Brass. I spray it on probably 90% of my stuff! It's warm, so the only time I don't use it is when I'm working with cool colors, which I hardly ever do! AB is very sheer as compared to many other GM's, like Black Cherry, which is why it's so easy to use. It's more of an accent than an actual design element like some of the more robustly colored GM's are.

Finally, my newest love!! I've only had my Crafty Secrets Images and Journal Notes booklets for a couple of months, and I ADORE them!! They are so much fun to work with. You can put a really lovely card together in half an hour! As a very slow stamper, this is huge for me!! There are LOTS of choices, I have three of them: Birds & Botanicals, Childhood, and Homemade. I love them all, and highly recommend them.

I got all of these at my favorite store, Creative Play Stamps. I think they carry almost everything Tattered Angels makes, lots of Sakura pens, and they are building their Crafty Secrets selection. They have these booklets, some of the chipboard, some stamps, some Cotton Scraps and stickers. They may have more, it seems that they have new stuff every time I visit.

What you really want to know, though, is how you can win, right? It's easy! Just link this candy to your blog, and leave me a comment here with your link. I will draw on the 25th. I'll ship it anywhere, international bloggers are welcome to play!!
