Blog Candy: And You Thought I Forgot

I'm continually amazed at all the wonderful comments and emails that you (my awesome readers) send me and I appreciate every single one of them! This is just my little way of saying thanks for making my day, week and month!

So I managed to find all of the something something that I wanted to include in my first Blog Candy to celebrate 25000 hits! It was a bit of a hunt at times... I really need to organize my craft room. Oh, you want to know what the something something are? Well, here goes:
  • 1 Veggiebella unmounted rubber stamp by Stamping Bella. This is courtesy of Christy at Paper Pretties (thanks Christy!).
  • 1 Package of alphabet rub-ons by Colorbok. These letters are nice and BIG!
  • 1 Happy Birthday embossing folder by Cuttlebug. If you don't have a Cuttlebug or similar machine perhaps you can share this with a friend who does.
  • 1 small pack of clear stamps in star shapes by Autumn Leaves
  • 1 yard of Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon
  • 1 yard of Chocolate Chip satin ribbon and
  • 1 card made by me using the Snowflake Kisses stamp set from Paper Pretties. You can see a bigger version of the card here.
To participate in this contest just leave a comment on this post. To make it interesting, tell me something that you are looking forward to in the upcoming year. Contest ends at 8PM (EST) on Monday, February 11th when I will pick a name using Random.org. Oh... and only one comment per person please!

  5. Wonderful blog candy..thank you for the opportunity to give them a new home...
    Well...this year I am looking forward to organizing my stamp room...I need drawers..sturdy drawers to put stamps and the gear that goes with them.
    I also would like to stamp enough cards and have a card organizer to put them in..so when I need a card, all I have to do is pull it out of my card organizer..that would be so cool.

  72. Hi! What a fun contest - and what a great prize! Thanks for the chance to win it! I'm really looking forward to when my daughter starts preschool. It won't be until September, but when it happens, I'll actaully have 6 whole child-free hours a week to myself! I want to spend a chunk of that time stamping. Right now, I have to wait until either naptime or after the kids are in bed to stamp, so it'll be nice to have that time to create.
