Blog Candy Winner - and The Key to Good Manners

First - I'm happy to announce the winner of my blog candy - chose #5 for me and that comment was from Crystal:

Crystal said...
Awesome card Julia wow girl you aced this ic!!! Wonderful candy...I have a sweet tooth!!! :)

Crystal happens to be one of my Split Coast friends so I'm thrilled that you won Crystal!! Please send your mailing address to and I'll get your 'candy' right out to you!
And now onto my card -

I made this card for the sketch challenge on Split Coast this week as well as the DoubleDog Dare Challenge I do on Tuesdays with a group of SCS friends. Charlene (LilLuvsStampin) was the hostess this week and her challenge was to make a Mr. Do Bee card (from Romper Room fame for those of you old enough to remember that kids show!)- something teaching a child about manners - and to include a bee!

I love this Petite Cherub DP by Rusty Pickle - the little kids on it are so cute! I zig zag stitched around the edge and inked the edges with PTI Chai and Chamomile Dye inks. The key is Tim Holtz grunge board that I inked with Chai dye ink and Gold pigment ink.

You can join in on the DDC challenge just add DDC to the keyword when you post your card.

Thanks to everyone that commented on my blog candy post - I'm sorry you couldn't all win!

This card is very special Julia - I love the vintage style - it reminds me of the illustrations in my mother's old Enid Blyton books!
