Rolling into Summer & Candy Winner!
Ah, I love summer! Can you tell? A card, three days in a row! And several more in the works. We're tied down here while my son takes health as a summer class to make room for more academic classes during the school year, so if we're stuck in town, I might as well put my free time to good use!
My poor Maggies have been so ignored, I just had to play with this cutie, Explore Tilda! She is out enjoying the summer sun for both of us, since it won't stop raining here, and if it did, the mosquitoes are so bad you don't want to go out anyway!
I've paired her up with some older My Mind's Eye papers from my stash, some seam binding and a few pearls. I coloured her up a few weeks back, so I don't have the list of colours, sorry! Hopefully you can see the Diamond Glaze on the magnifying glass and wings in the closeup.

And now for the winner of my blog candy that was delayed almost a month. My apologies for the delay. I had timed the end of my candy perfectly so that it would be all wrapped up leading up to two trips away, but the Canada Post Strike through a monkey wrench into my plans, and by the time it was over, I was prepping to head out to chaperone 30 swimmers for 5 days. Do you know how much food 30 swimmers eat in 5 days? It boggles the mind... good thing I did a lot of the cooking before we left, because that would not have been fun to make in a hotel room kitchenette.
Enough blabbering, right? Random.org did it's thing, and it drew #2, Fiona!
Congrats, Fiona! I guess this one is going across the pond :)
Thanks everyone for playing along! And thanks for stopping by!
