Crackerbox Palace Thursday and Blog Candy!

It's Crackerbox Palace Thursday and today I am sharing two cards I made with some fun summer time stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace.  You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog.  The simple requirements for a chance at winning this week’s blog candy are below.

 But first- the winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the silhouette cards is………………#10 Donna Mundinger! Here is her winning comment:  Love the silhouettes and what you've done with them. My fave is Sea Breeze but the male image is fab too. xxD

Donna, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want, so we can get you the stamps you have won.  And remember you can win another CBP stamp of your choice simply by posting a card you made with the stamps you won to your blog or Splitcoast Stampers gallery and sending us a link.

I made two cards to share today- one that looks like the 4th of July and one featuring a summer time picnic. I l just love the Fireworks stamp and sentiment on the card above. It could be used for any celebration including the holiday next week. I started with a square blue card and layered with a red piece with a stars border (Martha Stewart).  I added four yellow patterned squares with the fireworks stamp and the sentiment stamped in an oval cut with a Nestabilities die. I did a little doodling to complete the card.

My second card is a scene declaring “Life’s a Picnic!” I used a plaid border punch (ek success) to look like a red plaid tablecloth. The ants are carrying off a picnic basket and piece of watermelon (both paper pieced and colored) to have their own picnic. Guess they deserve to have one tooJ

So would you like to win the fun stamps featured on one of today’s cards? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:

 1.) We have decided that becoming a follower on both blogs is going to be something we would prefer you do but not a requirement.  My blog is here and the Crackerbox Palace blog is here. 

2.) Leave a comment on either my blog or the Crackerbox Palace blog on the Thursday blogpost featuring CBP stamps.  The deadline to leave a comment will be the following Wednesday at Noon CST. Mr. Random will pick a winner from the comments and he or she will win the featured stamp(s). You must send me ( or Crackerbox Palace (  an email with your home address so the stamps can be mailed to you.  And if you post a card to your blog or to Splitcoast Stampers with the stamps you won and send a link to Crackerbox Palace, you will win another Crackerbox Palace stamp of your choice!!

I am entering these cards in the challenges at Love to Create (Anything Goes) and Paper Pretties (Independence Day Inspiration.) 

Crackerbox Palace smiles and Happy 4th of July,  Karen
