Candy, candy, candy!

** This post will stay at the top until 4-22-11. Please scroll down to see my new posts. **


I have so much exciting stuff going on during the month of April that I thought I would share the love with my blog readers by offering BLOG CANDY.

"What kind of exciting stuff?" you might be asking. Well, let me tell you.

On April 1st I am participating in to 2 fun blog hops. The first is to celebrate Meljen's Designs' first birthday and the second is to show off the fantastic new digi's being released on Whimsy Stamps for April. Both offer prizes so check back to see how you can win.

I have a hop later in the month to show off some new digis created by some talented artists to help raise money for Japan. (You'll be hearing more on this later!)

On April 15th, I will be able to share with all of you the big secret I have been keeping. I'll give you a little hint - it's big, it involves all forms of paper crafting, and it is going to be FUN!

Add in a guest designer spot for Shelly's Images later in the month and all the usual fun I have with the Sentimental Sundays challenges I am just bursting to share some of my good fortune.

So, want to know what you can win? One random winner will win 4 digital stamps of their choice from Meljen's Designs.




So, how can you win? It's simple. I want you to go the Meljen's Designs digital stamp store on Whimsy Stamps and pick out your favorite image and then enter using the linky tool below. When you type in your name also include the name of your favorite Meljen's digi. For example, I would enter "Cheryl (Caroling Snowman)". Please enter only once.

While I would love to have you as a follower and to spread the news about my candy, I won't make you do it for the drawing. If you like my blog, please consider signing up as a follower. Pretty please. :)

When you are looking through the Meljen's Design store, don't forget that all Melissa's digis are on sale for 50% off during the entire duration of the blog hop (which ends Monday, April 4th.)

Entry into the candy drawing will end on Friday, April 22nd, at 2 pm Eastern. I'll announce the winner on my blog on Saturday, April 23rd. The winner will have 1 week to claim their prize before I draw a new name. Good Luck!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
