So Sorry for any Confusion re Blog Candy!!

With each new post since my blog candy post August 15th, I’ve added a note reminding people to enter but haven’t gotten any new comments. I thought this was very weird, now I know why! I extended the dates in a subsequent post but the original post still has the old dates! No wonder no one was entering! ARGHHH!! So here is a repost of everything with the correct dates (I’ve added time again to make sure you can all play!)

I have a lot to celebrate! My hubby was on strike and it is over, finally! Fortunately, we didn't fair too badly financially because as an essential service, paramedic, he still worked 75%. I'm suffering withdrawal from ordering goodies from the internet though! My blog has over 10,000 hits, actually nearly 14,000 by now and I just went over 200 posts in less than a year! So, blog candy is in order!

So what are we playing for? How about A COPIC SKETCH MARKER YG03, 20 yards of mixed ribbon and ric-rack, a grab bag of unmounted rubber, SU! die cut tags and two favour boxes, a package of felt flowers, a generous mix of brads, eyelets, butterfly charms, pearls and beads and a brand new package of bright pink Scrapper’s Floss for your paper crafting pleasure! Oh, and some turquoise faux suede cording, envelope seals and two little word bubble embellishments. Pretty good, huh?

Why you like it would be a nice addition to your comment. No title, no entry. Easy enough?! I have an archives section on my sidebar so you don't have to scroll back the whole way. Just click on a month and you will get all that month's posts.

I love your Pony Party Scrapbook Page post from Dec 14, 2008. Scrapbooking is my passion and so I love the colors you chose and the layout.

I found your blog when Firflies and Flutterbyes sent me. Both you gals are super creative. One of my favorite of your posts was 4-16-09Clearly Original Spring Card.The clear cards fascinate me. I tried a clear panel on a card recently that was fun. I love how you are not afraid to tell about your boo-boos when crafting. That makes us newbys feel better about not being so perfect. I've bookmarked your sight and will visit often. Would love to win the luscious blog candy. Thanks
