Blog Candy Time!

Hi everyone, wow I can't believe that I am almost at 10000 hits! It has certainly been lots of fun playing with this blog thing, I hope you have been enjoying my blog too. To celebrate 10000 hits I thought it was time for some blog candy, I believe a few of you out there like blog candy right???? LOL!

Yesterday my daughter and I picked out a few things to include in the blog candy prize, it includes:
  • 1 pkt of Music theme slide mounts
  • 5 mega clips
  • 1 pkt of lilac eyelets
  • 1 pkt of blue eyelets
  • 1 pkt of candle buttons
  • 1 pkt of silver & gold clipola's
  • 1 pkt of of pink vellum tags
  • 5 metres of grosgrain ribbon (1 metre x 5 colors)
I have tried to keep it fairly flat in case it needs to be posted to an overseas location!

If you would like the chance to win this blog candy, just leave me a comment on this posting (click on the comments button underneath the post) and tell me a little about yourself and where you live. Once the hit counter goes over the 10000 mark I will pick a winner by using the random number generator thingy.

I am in Michigan northwest of Flint. My baby who is 30 this week got married two weeks ago and is on his honeymoon. I have insomnia so am always on late unless I take allergy meds (should have today) and hubby is often overseas on business or just working-all the time. I need to go somewhere warm all the time and hate the cold. I have furry children only at home now-looking for another pooch for my Marley who misses his bro CLancy. Hope you enjoy blogging. I do when I get time.

**Waving** from Sheridan, Wyoming, USA. I have been a medical transcriptionist for 36 years, working from home for the last ten years. I seem to always have a creative hobby, the latest of which is card making. I teach classes at our local stamp/scrapbooking store and love it. Teaching classes challenges me to create and whereas I used to say I had not imagination, I'm finding I actually do! :) I have recently discovered all the wonderful blogs out here where I can learn and pick up tips to use in my teaching. I thank you all for sharing your talents.

Smiles,

Karen

Congratulations on your hits !! You are getting there! I love to visit your blog-- your cards are always such a treat to see and the way you take them are a bonus-clear, closeup and immaculately done. I am viewing from Boston, MA. I love to stamp and make cards to give to my family and friends to use. Right now, we are trying to plan our summer vacation--maybe Portugal? I've dreamt about going there.

I love your blog. I am from Central Florida, married, with two teenagers, a boy and a girl, and I love to stamp and scrapbook. I unfortunately do not have a craft room so my stuff is always floating about in my living room and thankfully I have an understanding hubby, cuz I always seem to be in the middle of some project. Thanks for sharing.
