What a Week! Now it's your turn for a prize :)

Happy Saturday,
This week has been a whirlwind and a wonderful one at that!
On Sunday I got the Sweet Sprinkles award from Pile It On for my plaque I made for Carter.
On Monday Dalis and Vicki from Pile It On asked me to join the Design Team full time and not just as a guest in October.
Then on Tuesday the same plaque won the 1st place at The Pink Elephant!
On Wednesday I squeezed in an entry to Victoria Case Challenges and it won! It means I get to be a guest of their team for next weeks challenge.
On Thursday I applied to be a DT member at The Pixie Cottage and although it's not a win it's a good thing just to apply!
Then Friday brought the motherload!
I won the blog candy at LaLa Land Crafts , then Use It Challenges chose my piece (albeit randomly ;)) and I get to host the challenge next week and finally Scrappy Frogs drew my name to win for last weeks challenge!

So it was a good week to do a drawing from the wonderful people who have signed up as a follower so far.
I was going to do the drawing today but I know with the upcoming Holiday and Back to School stuff that many of my readers haven't been around this week so I'm going to do the drawing on Wednesday from everyone that has signed up.
What will you win?
Here is the Blog Candy that could be winging your way!

Stop teasing us Katie you cry!!
Well I grabbed a Flat Rate envie and stuffed it with as many goodies as I could.
What are you getting....... here goes!

Paper Trends magazine
Simple Scrapbooks mini scrapbook kit
Chipboard shapes
Heidi Swapp Ghost stars and snowflakes
Autumn Leaves stamps
Studio G stamps
Felt Flowers
Brides Confetti Flowers
Embossed notecards and envelopes

If you add a photo to your blog side bar or post as well as signing up you'll get two entries into the draw. Be sure to leave a comment so I know you've added the deets!
Good luck and pass on the message!

Now if you've come for the Tilda card here she is!
It seems ages since I've inked up a Magnolia stamp as I've been so busy with digi's and it was a nice chance last night to go back to basics.

This Tilda can be got at Magnolia Stamps and she's such a cutie.
I decided to do a Fall theme as I love the colors and I think she looks lovely in her mustard jeans!
The dp are just fom my stash, mainly DCWV and the flowers are Brides.
I use the sketch over at Just Magnolia and I love it!
The Secret Saturday Crafter wanted Hearts and Flowers and I squeezed them in to my design :)
Also Stamp Something wanted you to use your favorite stamp and although I love all Tilda's this is one of my favorites.
Now I know I'm pushing it a little but I wanted this to fit with the challenge at Magnolia Down Under too. The challenge was 1 flower (I used 3), 2 ribbons (Tilda has ribbon in her hair and on her hat!, I told you I pushing the limits! LOL), 3 brads (in the flower centers) and 4 dp (that was easy)

The inside is more dp and a coordinating message mat.

Be sure to remember to sign up as a follower and mention this on your blog and you could be the winner come next Wednesday!
Have a great Saturday and be sure to check back tomorrow for my first card for the Pile It On team.
