It's Candy Time!!

So I have thought all day long about what I want to do to celebrate my 10000+ blog hits, and I finally came to a decision. I could have gone out and bought a bunch of stuff to make up a basket, but I have to drive atleast an hour to get anywhere good, and with all my RAKing I have been doing, I am running low on goodies!! So after a lot of thought, I decided to give you what you want(within reason that is!!LOL), and just what is it that you want? So happy you asked!!! I am going to award the person that wins my blog candy drawing a gift certificate for SU, redeemable through me for up to $29.95(and it will be shipped directly to you, don't worry about the tax and shipping, it is on me, so you actually get to get $29.95 in merchandise). Yes I know I am crazy, but I figure, by the time I go out and buy the stuff(and all the stuff I will have to have),buy lunch and gas, I will have spent WELL over that!!LOL
So now you are wondering what you have to do? Good question!!! Just leave a comment on this blog post telling me your all time favorite song(this one is for you Jodi) and your least favorite song!! Easy Peasy right!! I will accept comments until midnight on Saturday and announce the winner on Sunday. Only one comment per person please!!

ETA: I didn't think of this before, but if you live outside the US, your prize will be shipped to me, and then I will ship it to you, otherwise, it will come directly to you. Keep those comments coming!!!


This has got to be one of the best days I have had in a long time!! First, I get up this morning and get to go shopping for shoes, yay!!! Then, I got to eat dinner with my Mom who I hadn't seen for a while, HI MOM!! Then, lo and behold, when I log on to SCS I see that the dirty dozen gallery is open. Imagine my surprise to find that the two dirty girls are non other than Jodi(kharmagirl)who has a brand new blog, yay, and Laura(scrapnextras), my two elves, and the two people that make me keep stamping everyday!!! Both of these ladies have a special place in my heart and always will. I know I probably sound like a broken record, but seriously, they are two of my biggest supporters, and I am their biggest fan. I feel like a proud momma, I just wish that they lived closer to me so I could give them both a big HUG!!!! Congrats you guys, you are so worthy of dirtiness!!!
Today is also Prettie Wednesday(started this post on Tuesday so don't get confused on me!!), and as my first official Wednesday as a Prettie girl Jillian had posted our challenge, unfortunately for me, it was to take the week off and rest!!! So my first official Prettie Wednesday will have to be next week, when we are to make a card using polka dots for Jana's challenge!! This weeks challenge is being hosted by Joni, and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us!!

Then I noticed that my blog counter has rolled over 10,000 hits!!! YAY!!! So tomorrow morning I will post my blog candy contest, as soon as I make up my mind about what it will be!! Thanks to all of you that keep stopping by, I love it when you do!!!

Lastly, the sketch challenge got posted early, and lucky me, a card popped in my head, so I had to make it!!! I started with some yummy Afternoon Tea DSP and layered it with Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi and Chocolate Chip. I sponged all the edges with Chocolate Chip ink and then tied a CC satin bow around to hide the seam. I love my brads, so I put one in each corner. I used the same colors on the strip across, but I used a piece of Very Vanilla so that I could stamp my sentiment from All Holidays on it. I put brads in the corners of this too and popped it up on dimensionals. The main image is from Bloomin`Beautiful. I stamped it(three times) with Chocolate Chip and used my blender pen to color in the bloom and the stems. I then cut out different parts of the petals and popped them up too. the edges were sponged again, and I added some white gel pen for highlights. That's it for me tonight, I am about 4days behind on my blurfing, and I need to get caught up before this weekend!!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!!
