It's My Blogaversary!

Hi there!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a good weekend and your week is off to a great start!  I can proudly say my cards and gifts have now been mailed and I celebrated with a yummy latte from Starbucks on the way home from the post office! Now I can finally move on to other things!

I have no card for you today, but I do have a fun surprise!  Awhile ago, when I hit 400 followers, I mentioned that my blogaversary was coming up and I wanted to offer a little blog candy to celebrate.  Well, today is the day!  I can't believe it's been 2 whole years since I first started blogging!  I am so grateful for all of the friends I've made along the way.  You give me so much inspiration and encouragement and you make this craft even more fun with your visits and comments!

So here goes!  I've put together this blog candy to give away to one of my wonderful followers.  I may add in a few items as I go, but right now here it is:


Here are the goodies in the blog candy:

Webster's Pages Western Romance Collection Kit
Webster's Pages, Princess Petals Florettes
Webster's Pages Dazzle Me Gems
My Mind's Eye Collectable "Memorable" 6x6 pad
My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing "Tangerine" 6x6 pad
Heartfelt Creations Cardinal Family Stamps and Matching Dies
Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch Flowers Stamps and Matching Dies
Spellbinders Decorative Labels One Nestabilities
Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small Nestabilities
Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder
Gina K. Designs Birthday Hoot Rubber Stamp Set
Whimsy Stamps Kenny K. Queens Cutie Rubber Stamp
Penny Black In the Snow by Mo Manning Rubber Stamp
Sweet Pea Stamps Halloween Tea by Elisabeth Bell Unmounted Rubber Stamp
C.C. Designs Adell Rubber Stamp
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
Burgundy Stickles
Fired Brick Distress Stickles

Sorry, but I have to have a few rules:
  1. Be, or become, a follower of my blog.  You can follow by e-mail, Google or Bloglovin'. Leave a comment on this post saying which way you follow.  Please only join if you like my work.  I'll feel bad if everyone leaves after the candy is over.
  2. NO candy only blogs.  They will be deleted.
  3. I would really appreciate it if you'd post a picture of my candy on your sidebar with a link back to this post, but it is not a requirement.
  4. Add your name to the linky below.
The candy will be open until December 31st at 11:55 PM CST.  I will announce the winner on January 1st.

Good luck!

Have a great day and see you soon!
