Eye Candy and Blog Candy

I don't have a card to share with you on this post but I do have a picture of some pretty pink blossoms. This is a shot I took of a tree in my front yard... and no I don't know what kind of tree it is (blush). If you know please educate me! :) If it helps there is some kind of fruit/berry in the fall... birds seem to like them!

As pretty as the flowers are I do have another reason for this post... BLOG CANDY! Yay! I have a bunch of goodies to give away to one lucky winner. Some pretty May Arts ribbon (~2 yards of six different kinds including some yummy purple velvet ric rac), Botanical Blooms SAB stamp set from SU!, Welcome Baby clear stamp set, 12 - 8" x 8" sheets of American Crafts textured Pearlescent paper, 12 - 6" x 6" sheets of SU! designer paper and a couple of cards made by me. Oh - and a little chocolate too! :)

What do you have to do to win aforementioned blog candy? Just leave a comment on this post letting me know your favorite flower or flowers! Hopefully that should be easy enough! :) I'll be closing the commenting on Friday and picking a winner sometime on Saturday.

Just a note - if you post as anonymous please include your name or other identifier otherwise I won't be able to identify you if you win and will have to select someone else! That would be a bummer! :)

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

Smiles,

Danielle

  24. My favorite flowers are purple lilacs. Second would be red roses.

    For a couple of years we lived in Florida and I just loved it all. I could drive in neighborhoods for hours admire all the beauty. We are back up north close to where we were born. I miss the beauty of Florida (flowers and great sunsets) but I must say that now I get to enjoy autumn. The one season I could leave out if winter!

    Thanks for a chance to win and have a wonderful day.

  41. Hi Danielle, thks for the chance to win such beautiful candy.
    My favourite flowers are roses. My late father had a hedge of old-fashioned roses in his front yard. We used to pick bunches of them together and they smelled so wonderful.
    I would guess your tree is some sort of plum.

  43. My favourite flowers are tulips, probably partly because I was born in Holland and have seen them growing there in all their majesty.Hyacinths are also a favourite.

    Your tree might be a crab apple, especially if the berries look like tiny apples. Thanks for your great blog.

  44. Danielle, I just LOVE pansies. Years ago Stampin' Up! came out with a set of 2-step Pansy stamps and I fell in love with that flower. I have several now. I'm not much of a gardener and hope to become one when I grow up (I'm 56!!!), but until them I stamp flowers!!

  61. My favourite flower is a Gerber Daisy. :0) Growing up it was Lilacs. Outside my bedroom window we had a huge lilac bush and in the summer I loved waking up to the smell of it in my bedroom or at night when I was going to sleep.
