Okay, so how about a little Blog Candy to celebrate???

Edited:  This post will stay at the top of my page until Monday when I announce the winner.  Please scroll down for newer posts.  :)

I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it...yes, that's the Pointer Sisters' song going through my head!  lol  I still can't believe that I won a Big Shot...  Now I just want to share a little of my luck with you.  So what better way than a little blog candy?
  
This stamp set is called Flower Pot and it was the CTMH April Stamp of the Month, which is no longer available, now that it is May.   But I have a brand new one up for grabs.  ;)



THE DEETS:


All I ask is for you to leave a comment on what's the best thing you've ever won? Or if you've never won anything, let me know that too. Maybe your luck will change with my blog candy.  Ya just never know!  :)

If I reach over 100 comments, I will add something to the candy, and if it reaches 200, I'll add another thing to the candy pile, and so on.

And for a time-line, how about the end of day on Sunday, May 9th...  Mother's Day, at midnight MST.  I'll announce the winner on Monday, May 10th, sometime in the morning. 

~

Oh, and it's Lee's birthday tomorrow, and I still need to make him a card... so I should really get that done, eh???   Yes, I'm from Canada!  lol

Happy creating and good luck!  :)

Wow, congrats on winning your big shot. I never win anything, but then I was just blessed with my 3rd little boy, so I can hardly complain that I don't get anything :) The best Mother's day ever, to become a mummy ( Brit in seattle) all over again. Have a happy mother's day, I so absolutely love your blog.

I love your creations and inspirations...I won a wonderful basket full of paper craft toys, papers, embellishments, etc. in March this year at the Okotoks, Alberta Scrapbooking Convention. This convention was to raise money for the women's shelter. What a fun time.

Funny you should ask :p

Last month (actually about a week ago) I won a Verve stamp set. Oh how exciting it is to win something!!

I love your blog, by the way... I'm always on the edge of my seat waiting for your next post haha!

I would have to say the best thing I ever won was a set of four Spellbinders label dies - which I gave to crafty friends of mine as I had all of them already.

Kathy said...

A few years ago I won a Mother's Day contest from our Christian Radio Station here in town, a beautifuly strand of pearls, and a spa day! It was amazing! Congrats on winning the Big Shot you lucky girl!

Rachel said...

I haven't won anything from blogs but I did win a gift card in a raffle and that was pretty exciting!

Lisa P said...

Hi Vicki! Great blog candy!

I was going to say something really sappy like "The best thing I ever won was my husband's heart" but that is sooo not me (unless I'm giving him a hard time then I would definitely say it to him ...lol) so....

The best thing (scrappy related) I ever won was a Zutter Bind-it-all !! That was super exciting for me.

cindy c said...

Once I won $50 from a scratch off ticket! I was 21 years old and you would've thought I had one the big jackpot!

Karen said...

When I was in 6th grade a LONG time ago, I won the grand prize cake of the night. Haven't won anything in a really LONG time but maybe my luck is changing...

Kathy Mc said...

Congratulations on being the Royal Blog Tour grand prize winner! You will LOVE your Big Shot as don't know what I'd do without mine after using it so much. Over 30 years ago I won a 19" color TV (long before the flat-screen HD LCDs). Only other wins have been a couple blog candys from stampers. Thanks for your offer!

Brandy said...

The best thing I ever won was actually this year. I won a prize package from the Paper Crafts Connection blog. It in contained card kits, badges, thickers and a FABULLOUS shirt that reads "Not now honey I'm reading my Paper Crafts magazine" I laughed so hard when I seen it!

scrappingdragon said...

Gretel said...

I won a Felicity Collection from Jeanette's blog. I was so stoked! I don't have this stamp set, so it will be a nice addition if I win it:)

Mary Ellen Harrison abeautifulscrapbook@gmail.com said...

How EXCITING that you won a Big Shot! The best thing I ever won was the grand prize at a Scrapper's Dream Vacation....I won one of those XL Crop in Style totes on wheels. I was SO excited I almost passed out!!!

Karina Bunkenborg said...

The first time i won something i could not believe it.It was on a convention, i had made a lo with my daughters. I won a giftcart.

Heather said...

Wow - I had to think really hard for this one. I was going to say that I don't think I've ever won anything, but I do remember winning a little over $200 on the very first lottery ticket I bought.

Great Blog Candy!

Denise Willerton said...

well, I've never won blog candy before, so that would be a first for me ~ but I did win a cedar chest made by my cousin along with a throw made by my mother about 4 years ago. Love them both! thanks for this opportunity!
Denise :D

Congrats! I love my big shot even though I held out on buying it for so long thinking I didn't need one. I won blog candy once and my first (and last) time I played bingo I got a little.

I was coming to give congrats on you winning the big shot and wow you are giving blog candy. Several years ago my friend and I were attending a weekend crop. My friend won the big prize for Friday and I won it on Saturday. It is the large black and white rolling tote. When we were getting to leave everyone said we deserved it because everything we had was just alike. Thanks tdharris1@cox.net

scrappin' happy said...

Wow Congrats! I never win anything! I love the big shot!It just seems so durable!

JoAnn Porter said...

mamichelle said...

Wow, congrats on your win!! I've never won anything that big but I did win a couple of page kits from one site and then a cute decorated bandaid box on another.

Cheryl said...

How wonderful! The best thing I ever won was a Palm Pilot - back when they were all that in the early 90's. I loved that thing.

Well, I've never won any blog candy, but today could be the first.
Love your blog and your creativity and your willingness to share so much with so many.

Thanks

Chris said...

Hey, Vicki! Congrats on the Big Shot. You will LOVE it! I just cut 8 layers of fabric with my scallop square die. It is so easy to use. Thanks for the B.S. video you sent a long while back. The kids and I LOVED it. They ran around all day singing 'Big Shot Hero'. It was a hoot. Hugs, Chris

PS. I haven't won anything much, but love the stamp set. I'll keep my fingers crossed. :-)

Denise said...

Oh Vicki that is so cool! I guess I have to say that the best thing I won was 2 years ago I won like $3,000 in the Florida lottery. It is like when things were really down I on the off hand bought a lottery ticket. We got 5 of the 6 numbers. Things have been really tough for a family of four here for the past 3 years in a place known as number 1 in the nation for unemployment! So having the extra $3,000 made us with an annual income of a whole $12,000! Anyway stamp set is awesome...I would love to win it and Hope that you have a Happy Mothers Day!

I've been dying to win something scrapbook-related!!! The best things I've won is a t-shirt that I won 15+ years ago and a CD (also a very long time ago)... not scrapbook-worthy!! Bring on the SOTM!!!

Alma said...

Hi Vicky, I have won a couple of times, but I have to say that the best thing I've ever won was a basketfull of Tinkerbell Items. All kinds of toys, books, stamps, stickers, pens and pencils, beach towel, and more. The best things was that I won this in a charity raffle and I happen to win in on the day before my youngest daughgter's 7th birthday. She loves Tink, so needless to say I became the best MOM ever. :)

Thanks for letting me share.
