King for a day!!

Here's an awesome image from artist Sandra Caldwell.  Today is the last day of blog candy this month and also a day in which Sandra will be giving away a wonderful freebie on her blog Babycakes Doodle This and That.  It's been such a fun month. I am so glad that all of you have celebrated with me this year.  I feel so lucky to be so blessed.
I will be announcing final winners tomorrow and anticipate getting lots of mailing done shortly after that, so please stay tuned. If you see your name, please email me your address!  Lots more winners to be posted, so Keep an eye on the list!!

This amazing card is done with some stunning papers from Paper Temptress including shimmery Mica cardstock called Flame.  The image was printed out on Heavenly White, which runs through my printer beautifully and works well with Copic markers.  The wonderful borders are Hambly overlays.  They come from some 12x12" sheets that I just trim off the parts that I like for each card I want!  Isn't that a great idea?  The 12x12 sheets I get last a long time and I get to do lots of wonderful cards with each one.  This card is using Brown Grandma's Wallpaper.  It's just stunning on this card!  Be sure and look at this card closely, as when you see the sheet in the store, it's hard to believe it's the same paper.  The detail shown here is wonderful.

Be sure and drop by and catch the amazing freebie at Babycakes Doodle This and That today, I don't know when she will post it, but when she does, it's a wonderful freebie for everyone!!

My prize today is a great gift certificate to Paper Temptress.  To be eligible, drop by the Paper Temptress store, check out the Hambly Overlays and tell me which one is your favorite.  Prize today is an amazing $25 gift card to Paper Temptress (winner announced early next week!)  (NOTE: as of 10:30 am Paper Temptress is having a problem, but I will check back and see if they are able to get the site going, just leave a comment as usual today).

I thank you for showing me another example of the Hambly overlays. The Paper Temptress link says it has a virus & won't let me open it. Lotsa Love & I will be back~Patti

  9. Oh...I should have told you that I can't get to the Paper Temptress site. My virus scanner won't let me go there. It says there is a threat on that site.
    I saw the overlays by going to this site...http://www.franticstamper.com/Hambly-Overlays_c_2027.html

  17. Awe...Your card is adorable. I love the lion. Your borders are wonderful too. Perfectly done. I tried to get over to paper temptress site and it is very sad that it is not working. I feel for her. I did go ahead and google Hambly overlays just to see what I could find ..They are adorable. I love the butterfly one and the peacock one and so many more. I will try to access her site again later today. I am sad it's the last day. I have had a blast celebrating your 3 year with you. I will come back often though and see what you create for our crafty eyes. Hugs to you.

  38. Boohoo, it's still buggy at Paper Temptress, which I guess is best for me because my paycheck can only handle so much every two weeks! LOL
    So I choose your lovely 12x12 patterned paper that you cut out and used for your card's border-mwahaha! It is beautiful, and it goes so well with Sandra's cute image!!

  39. I know this is the end of your month-long celebration, but I know you never stop celebrating the amazing gift of life you received. And because of it, we get to profit from your artwork, your inspiration and your generous heart. Here's to lots more years to come!! Happy anniversary, Holley!

  44. Hi Holley, I have just tried to visit papertemptress.com again by clicking the link and by typing the address into my browser. My antivirus says it has been reported as an attack page. Big red warning. Sorry, that doesn't sound good so I won't be visiting. A pity because you have pointed me in the direction of some brilliant sites this month. Thanks for a great and fun month. Sending you best wishes and cyber hugs

  51. Hi Holley, another gorgeous card sweetie and such a fabulous image. I tried the link to see the Hambly's overlays but my security software wouldn't let me - said there was malware on the site. So I used the link in one of the comments here and my favourite is the Five Dandelions in purple.
    Have really enjoyed your month long blog candy sweetie and for such an amazing and fantastic reason too. Keep on smiling hunni.
