Candy Time: It's My Blogiversary Today! :)


I honestly cannot believe that I have had this blog for a year now! This year has just flown by! I wasn't even a SU! demo when I started it! Haha! I had only been stamping for about 2 months too so it is amazing how far I have come. Yes, I amaze myself! JUST KIDDING! :) I am also quickly approaching 100,000 hits! Who would have thunk it??? :)

Well, I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I organized and purged my stamp room. Well, I found some stuff that I had duplicates of and some stuff that I thought might be better used by someone else. Anyway, a lot of that stuff is included in this candy give-a-way (most of which is not even included in the picture) but I also threw in some other cool stuff that I picked up this past weekend! :) Included in this blog candy is a TON of paper! I have lots of 12x12 textured card stock, K&I dp, My Mind's Eye dp, SU! dsp, etc. I didn't even bother to put most of it in the picture! Hehe! I also am giving away a SU! current catalog, some Heidi Swapp ghost shapes, ribbon, a SU! decor element piece, some embellishments, chipboard pieces, 2 cool little bottles, a bottle of Stickles, 3 Fiscars texture plates plus a stylus (for those of you who do not have a die cut machine), and a cute card that I made! :)

So...do you want to win it??? You know you do! :) All you have to do is leave me a comment before midnight on Wed. February 11th. It's as easy as that! If you want to link me up on your blog, feel free! If you do, leave me a second comment for another chance to win!! :D

I love your site. Your cards are simple yet expressive. My grandmother was put into a nursing home this past summer so I have taken some of your ideas and incorporate into my cards that I am sending her. I am sending her cards weekly. The only week I missed was when I went home to visit her in England. Thanks Debbie
