All New Candy!


Candy and a card!  How's that?  Here is a pic of the new candy for our upcoming milestone candy contest.  1500 followers!  I feel overwhelmed when I think of that!  Like I said on the previous post, to enter this contest, you will receive an entry into the contest for each new comment after each new post (only one comment per post, though, will count).  Let me know what you think about this candy?  I loved all the comments after the last candy pic.  They were great fun to read and several of them had me chuckling out loud at the images they conjured up! 

The card that I've posted is one of the POTW samples using our new Classic Car stamp sets which will be on the show.  This one shows off three more styles of the new Spellbinder dies that are on the show.  In case you are curious, the gears glued to the bottom of the card are part of the Tim Holtz Ideology range that we carry (but they are not part of the POTW shows).   They are a lot of fun to use with the classic cars, though.  It is so difficult to find masculine embellishments, isn't it? 
 
 The first POTW show, I am told,  is a show at noon on Friday.  I will post the remainder of the schedule as soon as it has be finalised.  Okay, break over, it's back to work.  All for now, Sue x

What an awesome candy again here. Hopefully I´ll be lucky some time too LOL. Your card is just awesome and I can asure you, it´s great for a man, Hubby just saw it here beside me and just said, see this is a nice card to make, and that´s definately big words from him, so it must really be good for men, as he normally always just say, it´s probably just fine, when I ask him about any ha ha ha

Super card for any car enthsusiast as well as the guys.I usually put some sort of 3D liquid on the windscreen and lights to get a glass effect. Could also put persons name or age on number plate - sorry am getting carried away again...........x

Papercraft By Carole said...

Am liking the look of these new nesties!! And as ever, the blog candy looks fantastic - there are several items in their that I'm coveting already - the Tim Holtz Grungeboard letters, the autum foliage stamps and the African wildlife stamps (which would be fantastic on the safari scrapbook I keep meaning to make with all my safari holiday snaps)! Oh well, a girl can dream!! Cxx

bigpants27 said...

Fantastic card, I love the screw brads :) x

Buttons said...

I love this card. Cars stamps are usually of the very vintage style so it's great to get something more classic. As with all your stamps the detail looks great too. Looking forward to the POTW now. Keep it up Sue/Sam (and the rest of the family from the sounds of Sam's latest post!) What a talented bunch you are.

Craftetter said...

Sue - Just love this card for a male and it is so hard to get the right image for males.Love the background paper as well. Is there a workshop coming up soon - pretty please?!!!

gandi said...

Wooow! This card is really a card for a man!!! For me it's really hard to do a card for a man. It's much easier to make a card for a girl or a woman. So this card is gorgeous! And this candy! Greatful!!! Maybe, this time I'll be lucky.

your card is really great!
it is a real male card as for me! i love all the components!))
