My Crafty Heart DT Card - Look no image

Hello peeps how are you all today? Well as you can see from the title I have a card with 'No Image' today, yeah I know unusual for me!
Todays card is for My Crafty Heart using a few of Teresa's yummy things that she has in her fabulous store.
Yes I've done 'No Stamping' what so ever, even the sentiment is digital lol. I just fancied doing something different for a change.

The oh so gorgeous papers are indeed Prima 'Romance Novel' & splashed acrylic paint on all the edges. 

The plaster corner is Melissa Frances, these are so so pretty.

Here is a closer look at this beautiful flower. I have used the Cheery Lynn 'Stacker Die 2' & tbh I wasnt sure what the flowers would look like but I thought why not lol. They are fabulous I think I've put about 4 layers on this & then clipped together with a brad. Expect to see more of these peeps lol.
Lace & doily are from my stash.

1 layer I put through the notebook punch. Both hearts have been heat embossed & then cracked & inked a bit to distress them. I'm actually quite pleased with this considering it has no image......

Ingredients used...........
Sentiment - Whimsy
Prima 'Romance Novel' - MCH
Pearls & pearl hearts - MCH
Melissa Frances Resin Corner - MCH
Cheery Lynn Stacker Flower - MCH
Marianne Corner die - MCH

Some More Candy.................I dropped a clanger oops

Hello all of you beautiful people out there how are you? Well as you can see by the heading I have some more candy for you. Now before I get on with this candy I want to say a HUGE sorry as I didnt realise I dropped a clanger, until a lovely blogging friend told me, that when I put my candy pic on my sidebar I had put ends 6th september when that wasnt the right date. So because I felt awful I have rushed straight to my craft room & grabbed a few stamps. The sorting of my stamps is going very slow, there is always something else to do or I dont feel up to it.
I do have 1 drawer with stamps in that I know most of them I wont use so I grabbed these from there lol. 

There is a Bildmalarna stamp & a Kraftin' Kimmie stamps. The Kraftin' Kimmie stamps has been used once but still in original packaging, Bildmalarna is unopened.
This stamp is unopened & I have had this stamps since I first started crafting so its 2 & half years old & still unopened!!
This is 'Bingo' & 'Stamper'
These are Flippin' Stamps by La Pashe which I've had forever, I brought the whole collection & they have sat in my drawer..........I know I should be ashamed & I have slapped my wrist hard ;0)
Sorry about the photo's I will try get better ones up later, they are brand new, unused!!

This is 'Splish Splash' & 'Mr DIY'
Again this is brand new, unused. These are fabulous for those hard male cards. You can even stamp the inside of cards with the front image. They are excellent but I'm letting them sit & gather dust & I would love them to go to someone who will use them.

Ok now for the rules, the only rule is 1 entry per person & NO candy only blogs, thats it my lovelies.
I will keep this one running for a little bit longer but still not too long lol. 
So this candy will close 10th September.

So to win these 7 stamps all you have to do is leave a comment below & I will draw a winner on the 10th September.
Thank you sweeties mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
