Blog Candy Win & Childhood Memory

I had the best day today! When I got the mail I had 2 surprises both of which I love. The first was this box load of beauties.
I won this beautiful group of goodies from Michelle Pearson of Inspiration Blooms. She is such a giving person. I love how she made the great little notepad with pen. What a wonderful gift. She is a great lady and one of my new Blogging Friends. Go check out her great blog.

My second post brought me so much pleasure. It was my Winter/Christmas stamp club stamps from Magnolia. Oh, they are so gorgeous. I almost cried when I saw the stamp I used below. When I was 5 my Mom sewed me a beautiful coat made from Purple wool and had fur trim. I absolutely felt like a princess. I have always loved purple and this was the first time I didn`t have to wear hand-me-down clothes. When asked what my favorite childhood memory is , I always think of that special day when I got my coat. I wore it until it no longer fit and then I hung it in my bedroom for years. This stamp is exactly like my coat.

When it came to coloring this image I knew the coat color and my hair color. Before by silver/grey hair I had blue black hair. It was my pride and joy. All the rest of my family had red hair so I always felt special. I colored the image hair to match mine. The only difference is I never had long hair. It would get to my chin and I would have to have it cut. I still don`t let my hair grow long.

I made two copies of this card and only changed the way I colored the hair and the coat.I used Glitter white paper to frame my coat image and cut a heart with the nestibility out of glittered paper from the Glittered Christmas slab from DCWV. I found the word star and joy and cut them out. The Merry Christmas stamp is embossed in white. This is one of the stamps from the blog candy show at the start of this entry.

Well I feel all fuzzy and warm from the Purple Coat memories so I must go call my Mom. She will love this stamp as well. Talk later.
