Celebrating The Little Things

(this will remain on top until the give away - please scroll down for the current post)

I've got blog candy!


(click to enlarge)

there's a lot of stuff here - a Stampin' Up! stamp set (slightly used), some 6x6 papers, some shimmer mist, some ribbon, some snowflake embellishments, some unmounted rubber stamps, some flower stickers, a provo craft die, decorative brads, assortment of embellishments including some of my hand crocheted snow flakes, and a set of blo pens (great for adding speckles to your background!), and a quickie glue pen. Right now I am at 310 followers. For every 3 more followers I gain until the end of this blog candy I will add another something to the prize package!

To win this candy, just leave me a comment when I post something. I have a day picked out between October 11th and the end of the month. On that day I will have random. org pick a winner from the comments left on that day. You won't know which day is picked, so your best chance is to comment every day! I will announce the winner of the candy on November 1st!
Okay, I've gotten three more followers so these brass charms are now added to the prize package!



If I get three more I'll be adding this



Hi everyone! Well in just a bit we are heading to the wedding rehearsal. It looks like it's gong to be a picture perfect weekend! You probably won't see from me again until Monday, but I do have one card to share with you today! This is for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge yesterday called Colors Of Hope. It's a color challenge to use pink, blue, and green. I chose the ever fun Shady Lady for my card


(clikc to enlarge)

She's all colored up in Copic markers with a little yellow chalking in the background. The paper is from The Paper Studio birthday pack. What do you think of that sentiment? Isn't it great? It's a FREEBIE that you can grab at the Squigglefly group at Card Universe. The digi days have taken a break during the summer, but with the return of Fall the digi days are back! Tonight's digi day will take place HERE at 7 pm central time. There will be a couple more freebies and a challenge with a chance to win a prize. It's not going to be a big deal - will only last until 8:30, but it would be great if you could stop by and say hi!

Go take a look at what's new at Squigglefly weekend and come let us know what you love and what you'd love to see in the next few weeks! See you there, or I'll see you here Monday! Thanks for looking!
