Lazy Afternoon and some commenters candy to give away

Boy did I ever struggle with this picture!  The star buttons are just not playing the game.  They are triple embossed and have a sentiment stamped on them but you will just have to believe me cuz no matter what I did they just don’t look right.  Don’t you just hate it when that happens?

This is a die cut from the Take it Easy sheet that I have used on today’s card (another magazine one done yonks ago).  But I enhanced the colouring and shading with Prismacolor pencils, I love how it turned out too so will be doing this a lot more.  The Grunge Letter stamp from LOTV Clear Additions stamps was stamped on some of the paper from the K & Co Flora and Fauna pad in Walnut distress ink.  The sentiment is also one of the Clear Additions stamps.

I think it’s time I gave away some more commenter’s candy as it has been a while and you are all so lovely for not only taking the time to visit but also to leave me comments, I really do appreciate them :)

So, from yesterdays comments my hubby picked out two names. 

Myra from Myscardcorner and Trudy from Trudy’s Scrapkaarten can you please email me your addresses as I have a Stampavie stamp for each of you.

  8. The buttons looks fine here Bev and so does all the rest of the card. It´s just beautiful and the image is just too cute.
    Congratulations to to the winners of these cute stamps.
    Can you tell me, the first of them is that a very old one? I´ve never seen it, and I have been buying Stampavie stamps for a few years now, so I couldn´t understand, I´ve never seen it before. But it´s just so darned cute and I would really love to find it somewhere, so if you can tell me, what it´s callead and when it´s from, the chances might be better.
    have a wonderful week-end ahead here soon and lots of fun.

  17. I love the idea of taking the pre-coloured image and making it your own with extra shading and changing the shape. A great idea for when you don't have a lot of time to make a card. Thank you.

  27. Cute card! Love that you can go back and add shading to the images. I really like this very manly card with those muted colors. So great for those Dads in our lives. I can see some sentiment peeking on that button but can't make out what it says. I do hate how it can be difficult to capture certain things on camara.

    Well off I go;
    Hugs;
