A Sample For Sam Poole's Show

Hi blog friends!  I want to show you a sample card that I made for Sam Poole's shows on Saturday the 5th.  Sam has two new stamp sets called Candy Shoppe and Chocolate. Two of my favourite things,  I like the sound of those already!  Her shows at at 12:00 and 5pm so be sure to tune in to see what exciting demos she has planned for you.  I used her empty candy jar here and stamped it with these chocolate candies by repeating the stamp and masking.  I coloured them with my distress inks by swiping them on my craft mat and picking up the colour with a fine paintbrush.  I stamped a sentiment on the label and added it to the jar and tied a bit of Bakers Twine around the lid.  I mounted it in the Spellbinders Polka Dot frame.  I have used some of the decorative papers that will be on the show also.  I love the purple and brown combo.  The bow is made up of three colours of vintage ribbon, riveria lilac, amber brown and lilac with a button and some more Bakers Twine.  I added a bunch of buttons from my craft stash just because I thought they looked fun (and chocolate is definitely fun!)  I finished the card with the new purple violet PVA glue since it looks like candy dots itself!  Don't forget to tune in! All for now, Sue x

This card is yummy scrummy and I love the colours. Sorry I'm posting late but, like Carole, I went to the NEC today. I had a long journey but my daughter and I really enjoyed it.
Please would you post what shows, if any, you'll be attending in the near future as I would love to make your aquaintance and say a personal thank you for your hard work. Hope you and all here have a great weekend. Regards Linda
