Hi everyone,
I have all kinds of stuff for this post;
we'll have a Nov. candy winner
new Dec. goodies
a new digi

But first I want to welcome all of our new members.
I'm so happy each and every one of you stopped by and joined.
Feel free to stop in anytime and say hi.
Big hugs to all.

Now the moment you've all been waiting for.
November's Winner

#31 Chris from My Inspirational Journey

You are the winner!!! Send me an email with your address and I'll get your new goodies shipped off to you.


Now for Decembers blog candy. 
I went out shopping for some goodies. I kept thinking that I wanted something big, a nice assortment of toys to celebrate my 6 month blog anniversary. I found a great set of Basic Grey items and bought one of each and then a few other items that I thought would look great with the collection. 

Completely ecstatic over my find; I went home, sat at my art desk, glanced up at my wall calendar and realized something

It's my 5 month anniversary, not 6. Whoops...

I don't really want to wait until next month to start this giveaway, so instead of celebrating my half a year of blogging we'll have to pick something else.

How 'bout this: 200 members

Here's what's included:
  • 1 paper pad (6X6, 36 sheets)
  • 1 set of layered trims

  • 1 package journaling cards
  • 1 package rhinestone accents

 Good luck everyone.

 And now for the new digi.

Five months ago when I started my little art blog, one of the first thoughts that I had was; oh I can't wait to draw an angel. Christmas will be prefect and it'll give me time to decide exactly what I want her to look like.

I knew I wanted lots of flowing hair. Something that looked like it defied gravity.
And then the wings. So many possibilities. Lots of feathers, bubbly, tucked in, huge and fanned out, my list goes on and on.

Angel Cuddlebug Cuties
In the end I chose lightly feathered and curved. I love the dimension of them.
