Ce-le-brate good times, come on! Let's celebrate! {Time for some Blog Candy!}



***  Be sure to scroll down for new posts.  I'll keep this blog candy post at the top of the page until end of day, July 31st.



We all get a little corny when we are feeling happy, don't we?  Or maybe it's just me.  ;)

I received my 5 year pendant from Close To My Heart about a week or so ago.  It arrived a little early, as I had signed up 5 years ago this coming late-August, receiving my start-up kit sometime in September.  It's still hard to believe that 5 years have passed!

~~~~

I am also celebrating two other little milestones on my blog.  I recently had hit over 200K views and now have over 300 followers.  (Of course that doesn't account for all of you who visit my blog who are not signed up to follow.  Goodness knows how many people regularly visit!)  I just want you to know that I appreciate each and every one of you and I want to thank you for all your kind comments over the past two years and your show of support in what I love to do.  :)

So with that said, I'm offering up a little blog candy.  Anyone out there with a sweet tooth?  lol

I still have some of my pre-stamped A Posy card kits available, and I am offering one up as blog candy for someone to win. 

 

I am striving to make not only my life easier, but for you as well.  So all you need to do to be entered to win is leave me a comment (and a way for me to contact you if you win).  

I will keep this open until midnight MST on July 31st, and I will announce the winner on August 1st sometime in the morning.

Good luck and happy creating!

Leslie said...

You know I follow your blog!!!!!!!!! I loved this card so much that I tried to order the stamp set and ended up with the wrong one, the one right below it (A love). I keep looking at the set I got asking myself "why would I order that?", now I remember, it was because I wanted that flower. So if you find it in your heart to choose me, all will not be in vain. - grins -
