Winner announced Shortly!

I have some EXCITING news and have been 'busting' to share it with you. Laura from Layers of Color has invited me to be part of her Design Team. How amazing - it is all so exciting and has happened so quickly!! I was not familiar with Layers of Color and popped over to have a look during their ONE YEAR CELEBRATION....it was 'love at first sight!' Not only did I love their product, which if I didn't know better, I would have thought they had personally designed for me, I also loved the fact that they are a Christian family and it is clearly seen through their work! Laura is an amazing woman who loves God dearly and wants to glorify Him in all she does! She designs all of the stamps for her company, and the family is completely involved--husband, children, grandparents, etc., all help with the company! I have learned so much already, and I am so honoured and humbled that she would invite me to be a part of Layers of Color. The current Design Team members are phenomenal--everything from scrapbooking, cards, inchies, ATCs, to mixed media! God's hand was completely in this, I am SO excited that Laura has given me this opportunity, and I can't wait to share my creations with you!

To help celebrate this Big day for me Layers of Color have offered a set of their fabulous stamps as BLOG CANDY!! So, one blessed winner will get a 'REGAL WINGS! Clear Art Set. It is a $USD15.95 retail value set! It will not be in the retail packaging just because the designer's stamps don't always come that way; however, they are BRAND NEW and beautiful--just missing the package! :) Here is what they look like:

Beautiful, aren't they? So, what do you need to do to win

- You do not have to become a follower, although you are very welcome to!

- Link this BLOG CANDY to your Blog and leave a comment letting me know you have - IF you don't have a BLOG, leave a comment here and I will enter you in the draw - this is for EVERYONE!

- Pop over to Layers of Color and check out my gallery and leave a comment on this post and tell me which of my cards is your favourite .

- Leave your comment by 3pm Thursday 14 August (my time) and I will randomly draw one winner that evening and Laura at Layers of Color will get them out to you! All the best everyone! I know the winner will not be disappointed!

  26. Hi Linda! I have just found your blog this evening, and WOW!!! You are one gifted artist!! I am sooooo in love with those stamps :) I browsed your gallery on Layers of Color and while I do love ALL the cards you have made, the details and FLOWERS on the Flower Child card blew my mind!! I was STUNNED when I saw it in the first picture, and then when I clicked on the "NEXT" button and I could see the flowers close up..........


    Thanks for a chance to win this great stamp set :) I hope you don't mind if I add your blog to my list of "MUST READS"!

  27. Okay, I don't think it is fair that we can only pick one fave! They all are very stunning pieces. As a huge vintage fan myself but to afraid to dabble, I have a tremendous respect and am in awe over the stunning pieces of work you have made. Cards or scrapbook pages. Beautiful, really, beautiful!!
    So if I have to pick only ONE then it would be Nature Walk with the Gothic cross, just a question though, is that background paper embossed or something! So Fantastic!
    My link to my blog:
    Now onto checking out more of your blog and talented works!

  28. I love your style! My fav card is the awardwinning one I think although I do like the flower child and regal wings too.
    I wrote about your giveaway on my candypost. Thanks for the chance :)
