Clean and Simple Monday & Blog Candy!

Ah, summer...we love the warm days but so do the growing things.  We spent the weekend trimming palms, pressure washing the deck and cleaning patio furniture.  I have a few muscles I didn't know I had because they all hurt!

The CAS122 Challenge on SCS this week is a Play on Words.  Time to get punny with those sentiments and images.  DH left late this a.m. so I didn't have alot of time to think and this card took waaay longer than it should have AND I must have wiggled the sentiment because my "i"  is double but there is no time this a.m. to fix it. 



I made a card for friends expecting their first baby that I didn't get posted.  It's just a bit of fun.  Hope it brings them a smile.



And now......the blog candy I promised you! 


There is a big plastic case full of flowers and die cut shapes,
 some fun flowers from Petaloo and Bella Blvd.,
 2 stamps from Stampin' Bella,
 Mat Stack die from Papertrey Ink,
 Winnie the Pooh metal alphabet embossing die,
 cute kraft paper bags and doilies from my Etsy shop
 Copic Warm Gray Sketch marker, and
 6 yummy yards of May Arts Ribbon  and a few more surprises that I'll be adding before I pick a winner.

What do you have to do?  Just leave me a comment and post a pic of the candy on your blog.   If you want to follow my blog that would be awesome but not required.  If you don't have a blog, that's ok, too...just leave me a comment or become a follower and tell me you did. 

I will choose a winner by random number generator on Sunday, June 19th at 6:00 p.m. EDT.
