Camilla's Candy Blog !!!

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy today because I think my life is getting back to normal stepwise. The moving was so stressful because we own both places and we are selling one now after a bad experience with a tenant.. But anyways. I'm so happy that we are almost done and I can do cards again. Also I made the decision of quitting my job after more than 10 years working for the same company. I will miss my friends (even I will keep in touch with them) but for sure I will not miss the stress and the long hours at work. :)) So, since now on I will have more time for my family, myself and to make cards and enjoying the beach... I'm really happy with the decision!

I have to do a few more things before I can post a card everyday but I'm getting close to it. I want to THANK YOU each of you who sent me emails , cards and goodies over this time inquiring how I was doing. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! At the end of this week I will organize a Candy Blog to celebrate my 10,000 entries and the beginning of a new chapter of my life.

Today, I want to show you a card that I made for Camilla's Candy Blog. She asked for a card to celebrate her 10,000 entries too and she have this wonderful sketch to follow. I love this type of challenges. Also check her blog because she have an amazing style and all her cards are full of details and little surprises, you never know what you can find . I love it!
She is one of my daily inspirations. Hope you like this card.

The stamp I used on this card is the Summer Kit from HÄnglars & StÄmplar . This is one of my new favorites. I love this cute little girl!
The papers are Bazzill and Cosmo Criket. Brads are from Making Memories and the flowers are made with punches.
I'm so happy to see all your comments... I noticed that a few new friends started visiting my blog recently. These days are being kind of hectic to me, but I will come back to visit each of your blogs as soon as I have a little time.

Also, I want to introduce a new blog member from UK. She is a really nice person and does wonderful cards. Her name is Gill and this is her blog.
Her coloring is amazing.

Ok, I will be back soon with more cards. Thank you again for all your supporting emails and I love you guys!!!
Big Hugs,
