Hey, I just realized it's been a year! Time for some Blog Candy!

I started my blog one year ago today on April 8th. So of course I will have to give away some blog candy to celebrate my BLOGAVERSARY! Let's see what I can scramble up for this... hmmm... how about this?

Items include (all CTMH):

~ The "not-yet-available-to-customers" CTMH 2009 Summer Idea Book (goes live on May 1st)
~ Key To My Heart E-sized stamp set
~ Dazzling Die-Cuts Autumn Harvest (Autumn Terracotta, Barn Red, New England Ivy, Outdoor Denim, Pansy Purple, Sunflower and chipboard shapes)
~Organdy Ribbon Rounds Autumn Harvest (Autumn Terracotta, Barn Red, New England Ivy, Outdoor Denim, Pansy Purple, Sunflower)
~ Metal Charms
~ Clear Shapes

(approx. $70 CAN retail value)

~ I'll also add a couple of cards I've made (or haven't even made yet), but they'll be a surprise for the winner.


• All you have to do is create an anniversary card or birthday card (since it’s kind of like my blog's 1st birthday) in any shape, any size and any color combo, preferrably using Close To My Heart products, but I'm open to you using whatever you have if you don't have anything CTMH. (Really, you must get some CTMH, though... it's awesome! LOL)
• I would ask that you upload your card using Mister Linky below (please just link to your card, and not your whole blog). Don't worry if you don't have a blog. You can go to to upload your picture and link it that way. Just put WIZARDCANDY in your card post title for a code to play along.
• I'll choose a random winner in two weeks. Cut off time is 12 noon (MST) on Wednesday, April 22nd. *** I have to go out of town, so I will be changing the closing date to a week later on Wednesday, April 29th. *** • So make sure you check back to see if you won, because I'll need your contact info to be able to mail your goodies out.
• ***Open to residents of Canada and the United States.

**Another way to upload you file for you newbies, is to upload your picture from your computer onto (it's free), then copy and past the URL (found at the top of your page, ie: .... ) into Mister Linky.

UPDATE: Can you believe it's snowing and blowing like crazy here today? So we'll be heading out tomorrow instead. But since I changed the draw date already, I'll keep the date for next Wednesday (April 29th).

I'll be using to pick the number, if I can figure out how to delete the double posts. And to be fair to everyone, if I can't figure out how to delete the duplicates, I'll just write the numbers/names (excluding the duplicates) onto paper and have my son draw one winner from a bowl. Thanks for playing and for those who haven't yet, you still have time! :D

Thanks for playing... Mr. Linky is now closed...

Hi Vicki,

Sorry I entered 2 times...I was having some problems with can delete the first submission if that is possible.

Happy Blogaversary!!!
I love checking out your blog.

Heather said...

Happy Blog Birthday! Okay so I stamped 'I miss you' on my submission then thought whoops! Oh well maybe 'I miss you' could mean I miss the year that has gone by already LOL

Vicki Wizniuk said...

Thanks to everyone who's played so far and to those who are going to...

I'll see what I can do about the duplicates to see if I can delete them from Mister Linky. He's pretty fabulous, so there must be a way, but like I've said before I'm kinda a dork when it comes to blogging, so I have to see if I can figure it out. :)

Happy Blog-a-versary to you! I started my blog just a few months ago and I'm surprised at how involved I've been since I started it... it's so much fun! The card I used was inspired by you... so thanks!
