Meet Grendalyn (More blog candy!!)

Here's a wonderful image from Sweet Pea Artist Terra Bidlespacher called "Grendalyn"(Plate #182). Isn't she great? I love this artist's work. If you click the link and see Terra's coloring and design of the image, you can see that this image wasn't necessarily meant as a halloween theme image, but if you look at my coloring and card layout here, that is exactly how I used it!


Sometimes I think it is great to see how another person uses an image when I get a stamp and how differently they may color it and make it look. Take a peek on the Sweet Pea Website and see how the artist makes this image look compared to my card today. Hope this card is putting you in the Halloween Mood!!


So, what would be more fitting than a Sweet Pea stamp as blog candy today? This stamp is a gorgeous one from the same artist who made Grendalyn, Terra Bidlespacher. The stamp is named "Journey" (CLICK HERE). You know you want her!! Just leave a comment today, all winners will be announced next week (tuesday).


If you haven't been following the blog all week, you definitely need to scroll down and sign up for great blog candy on Monday and Wed, then stay tuned for the rest of the contests. Read up on monday as that's the whole WHY we are having a celebration this week!

Holley, I love that you took this non-halloween image and used it for just that. You did a great job on the coloring it looks so much like water coloring, very beautiful!! I really like the silver border you used on the top and bottom.

I love Terra's stamps over at sps. :) You got me addicted to sps!! LOL

I love what you have done with Grendalyn - I think she looks like a Halloween image too. These newer images by Terra are so cute - I like them better than her older ones in fact - Anne and Rainbow Drear are my favorites. Of course I won't pass up a chance to win Journey either :) Thanks for all the lovely chances to win!
