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! I have added a package of six brass charms, a package of 12 sugar coating glitter by Doodlebug, a Viva Silver Pearl pen, two brand new foam mounted Inky Impressions stamps, a package of 60 self-adhesive clear gems, a four pack of fresh flocking from Studio G, a set of 10 metal tab clips by Making Memories, and seven sheets of hand dyed tissue paper to the prize package so far! When I reach 337 followers I will add this
Five different metal charms to tie on to cards or embellish scrap book pages.
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! Good luck!
Happy Halloween everyone! I love Halloween and used to really have fun with it, but Halloween has changed so much. Not very many kids trick or treat door to door here anymore. Now they go trick or treating at businesses in strip malls and shopping malls or at planned Halloween activities at churches and schools.
This year I just went and bought a few booklets of coupons for free frosties from Wendy's to pass out. That way we won't have a bunch of candy laying around the house to tempt me, and plus the money for the coupon booklets helps out a charity for foster children. What are all of you doing? Do you get a lot of trick or treaters still?
With it being Halloween you'd think I'd have a Halloween card to show you, but no all of my Halloween cards have been mailed out. I do have a couple of cards to show you that I made for the 29th Hope You Can Cling To Challenge though. This challenge was to not use any stamping other than the sentiment.

I used the lovely sentiment done in Roanne Mathias's beautiful calligraphy Friends Are Like Flowers, and everything else is designer paper and a border punch. I cut my flowers out of designer paper and attached it with a brad.
I liked the way this turned out so much that I made another one with different papers!

I can't believe that forgot to tell you all about Riley's experience with the new groomer. All went well, and the groomer did exactly as I asked. Here's a picture I snapped of Riley today while she was trying to scare a mouse or something out of our fire wood pile.
She didn't get much of her fur trimmed because it's starting to get cooler now, but she's clean (if you don't count the dirt on her chin from chewing on a log in the wood pile!)and her nails are trimmed and all the hair was plucked from inside her ears and they don't look red or irritated like they did the last two times she had that done by a different groomer - so for now we're sticking to this new one!
Be sure to check here tomorrow to find out who wins the blog candy, and thanks for looking!
