Happy Monday Everyone! Today I like to share a card I made with Cup of Sunshine from Moma's collection available at Whimsy Stamps!

Tilda's Birthday Wishes & Candy Time!

****** For My Candy Please Scroll Down! ****** Hello All and Happy TGIF! Today my post is a bit longer so please bear with me. I have different things I want to share with you all and one of them is a CANDY I have up for grabs! At the end of this posting you'll find the candy and how to participate. :-) I wanted to do this for quite some time and now finally I came a round and did it! I also have a video to show. I was asked several times already from fellow stampers and followers of my blog if I could do coloring video's.

So please be easy on me I never did a coloring video before. This first video shows

If you are like me and building up color in lots of layers this cardstock is no good. After just a few layers it wont take any color anymore and the surface gets sticky with lots of built up. Also the color seems to sit on top of the paper and is not drying for a very
