Heartbreak and Candy

Well the 2 do go together don't they?

Good evening, it's been a lovely day here and I'm late blogging because the family have been shoe shopping. Bleurgh! Those that didn't need them wanted them, those that needed them couldn't be bothered and SMO fell asleep in the corner, you know how it goes. I bought a new pair anyway!

Don't worry, in the end the only heartbreak was this guy....
Heartbreaker Edwin. Coloured with Copics and layered up with silicon glue (I always use foam pads cos I'm lazy, but the silicon does look better no?)
I've used Just Magnolia's sketch #66 with My Mind's Eye papers. The blue flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the green ones are QVC. I cut a whole batch of mats once I had the Sizzix out and embossed a few too. Funny how you rediscover things you haven't used for a while. That leads me on a quest for new dies and folders though.

Yes, I hear you say, that's all very well but didn't you mention candy? Well, yes I did and I'm launching my 1st ever blog candy for a couple of reasons. I've exceeded 750 posts, which means I talk too much. However, the summer holidays are here and I'm not sure when I will get time for crafting or blogging. So what shall I do..........SUMMER CANDY.
There's a Heartbreaker Edwin just like the one I've used for my card, a roll of Hobbycraft ribbon, some Panduro heart brads and just a few of my Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.

The candy will run until 30th August. Add a comment to this blog post and post a bit about it on your blog if you're able to. I will attempt to send to anywhere in the bloggosphere so open to all. Winner to be picked randomly and announced once I've got the kids back to school!

I have a few projects on the go at the moment, so hopefully I'll be able to blog them over the weekend.

Hi Kate, thanks for sharing this super-duper candy, keeping fingers crossed. I will go shout it over blogland.

We have been shoe shopping today, have two pairs to get, well one now, managed to do one set, £36 later, lol! Lots more uniform to buy, lucky me!

I do agree thought, heartbreak and candy go very well together, lol!

Have a super weekend, hugs Heidi xx

Thanks for the chance to win your first ever candy. I will put it on my blog. I am from a city just east of Toronto, Canada. I have just retired after spending all my life working in the legal profession as a litigation paralegal. I now spend time with my crafts which I absolutely love and chauffeuring my 17 year old grandson until he gets his licence, which he is working on. I have never son anything from anyone's web but getting a Magnolia would be wonderful. Thanks.
