Blog Candy Revisited

I never heard from my winner of my last blog candy post, so I am going to randomly draw a winner from anyone that posts on here about stamping (anywhere, not just this post) starting today through June 11th. Check the archive (May 11) for the picture of the goodies! It's a card, ribbons, beads/wire, and I will of course have to add something else fun......off to Hobby Lobby to see what sales there are!

Here are a few (of the 300!) of my favorite pictures from our Wisconsin vacation. I realized that I had said I would post pictures awhile back and never did! I made a slide show with some of the pictures. Scroll all the way down the page -- it's at the bottom! It is so beautiful there, and the sunsets were amazing!
This one is my beautiful daughter:

And on another night (see the seagull?):

And yet one more -- all three of these are taken from the same place -- right next to the dock at our friend's cabin, on the Green Bay side, where we stayed:

This was such a sweet sight -- Moms and their babies out for a morning snack -- there must have been over 40 geese all together! The little babies were so fuzzy! This was taken near a town called Sturgeon Bay, WI. We were on our way to the Maritime Museum, where there was a special Pirate exhibit. We had just seen "Pirates of the Caribbean 3" the day before and thought it was appropriate to visit the museum to see artifcats from real pirates and their ships. It was fascinating -- stuff from famous pirates' ships (like Blackbeard) and not so famous -- but ALL interesting stuff!


And one of my favorite flowers (Bleeding Hearts) that I happened to find everywhere in the town of Fish Creek (and aren't they a lovely shade of PINK!):

I finally got a card made today -- I made it for my sister and she has already seen it in my SCS Gallery, but I didn't tell her it was for her!! I couldn't come up with ANYthing for the SCS Sketch today, which is weird -- it was simple. But I made this instead:

I put in seed beads in the middles -- man, that stuff goes everywhere! I had to get out the little vacuum just after I opened the bottle! Sunflowers remind me of summer~

I guess I will chose here to post. First of all Thank you for offering a chance to get the blog candy. I love your beautiful pictures! I admire people who can capture such beauty on a piece of photo paper! Very pretty!
If I took pictures like that I would use them in my cards! They are so much preetier than my stamping. My love is stamping too.

You have great ideas when it comes to stamping. But your talent is beyond that. You are an amazing photographer. I love the sunset with the bird and the close up of the flowers. Simply gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

Hi- great pics and so green! Living in the desert makes you forget that green things grow everywhere else! You should take pictures for a living.

Wow what sweet candy here, just to leave behind. What great pictures and your artwork is just stunning. The love of stamping can be an obession, but it is worth every PENNY you spend and more. Thanks for the chance.

What beautiful vacation pictures. Awesome. Yes, the wonderful state of WI is beautiful!!!! (I'm just a little prejudiced, begin from here my entire life!)

Your blog candy is so nice.

Beautiful pictures!

Beautiful photos (luck you!) and a wonderful card. I like the way you used the seeds in the flower centers. I'm a sunflower lover myself and since I teach card-making at the LSS, I'm going to keep that in mind for one of my summer classes. Gotta have at least one sunflower card and one ladybug card, donchya think? :)

I enjoy your blog. Your vacation photos are amazing! I've never been to Wisconsin, but my nephew will start college there next year so hopefully I'll get there before long to visit him. I love the color combos you choose for your cards. Thanks for offering blog candy:)

If I could chose to live with any non-domestic animals, it would be the giraffes. I just so love them.

You not only craft outstanding cards, your photography is breathtaking too. You are a true artist.
