Blog Candy Update

WOW! Stampin' Up has a lot of fans! :)

Just wanted to let ya'll know that I have a lot of new subscribers and I'm unable to identify all of them. If you signed up for the blog candy and the newsletter, please make sure that your comment lets me know that you did so so that I can submit your name for the blog candy an additional five times. I recognized two email addys under the subscriptions that did not comment so I know that they ONLY signed up for the newsletter and are not signing up for the blog candy. Also, I think there's a couple of comments that indicate that a link was placed on their blog, but there's no link listed and I have been unable to check and see if a link to the blog candy was posted. I just want to make sure I got everyone that signed up for it and that I submit the right number of entries for each of you that did. January 31st is just around the corner! Thanks for playing and passing the word along about the blog candy! :)

Can you believe it's almost February?!

OK, maybe I don't understand the concept of monochromatic . . . I thought and continue to think it is ok to use white with this theme. Have I been wrong all this time? Anyway, I participated in a monochromatic card swap and made this card in lots of different colors, starting with brown and ending with silver (I think I ended up with about 7 cards). Along the way, I didn't like the outcome of each finished card, but I really liked the way this one came out. I can't use it because I used white paper for the BG. So, back to the drawing board! Since I liked it so much, and I rarely am happy with my own work, I decided to use it as a birthday card for my sister, Eva. On the inside of the card I wrote ". . . wishes for a very happy birthday." I had originally left the tag blank so that the recipient for the swap could write in their own sentiment. Besides, during this time of year, I think EVERYONE needs warm wishes for anything! :) I hope you're keeping warm!

Supplies: Cardstock; TAC stamp and tag; brads and rhinestones; Stampin' Up silver cord; jewelry bead; Colorbox quicksilver ink; Ranger embossing powder; glitter

Blog Candy!

OK, bear with me. This is my first time to offer blog candy! I hope I can get it all squared away with one post.

I'm offering the following The Angel Company (TAC) stamp as blog candy. For those of you unfamiliar with TAC products, this unmounted stamp uses a 3"X5" acrylic block and comes with EZ mount foam. If you post a comment and tell me your favorite stamp company it will count as one entry. If you subscribe to my newsletter, it will count as five entries. If you already subscribe to my newsletter, just let me know and I will give you the five entries. If you post a link to this blog candy post, I will give you an additional five entries. Please post the link to this post on your comment so I can see it. :) I will do a random drawing on January 31st. Thanks for stopping by!

Warm Wishes

and a Happy New Year to all my fellow bloggers, friends and family! May you all be having a winter filled with the kind of weather you like! :) I've been soooooo busy trying to get over the holidays that if I told you what I'd been up to, you wouldn't believe it, so I won't tell you! LOL For my northern friends, here's a little warm thought sent your way because I know I am sorely needing it now myself! :) New Hampshire, as of 12/31/2007, has had 43 inches of snow; breaking a record from long ago! And for my southern friends, well, it's just a reminder of the kind of warmth you may be having at any given time! :)

Supplies: Cardstock; printed papers; sandpaper; Pink Cat Studio stamps; Pebbles chalks; glitter; glaze pens; Tim Holtz distressing and Whisper inks; jump rings and ribbon.
BTW . . . the bikini . . . matches the one I usually wear to the beach each summer too! ;)

Oh, and check this out! I found it at Dawn's All Pink Girl blog and was just so WOWED by it (is that a word and if it is, is that how it's spelled?) that I had to show it to you!
