This Blog Candy is now Closed! Woo Hoo! I'm the Featured Artist @ "The Greeting Farm" Plus ~ BLOG CANDY SURPRISE!


I brought this post back to the top so it would be easier for people to enter my blog candy give away. Please scroll down a couple for newer posts.

I am so excited to be featured! Marie sent me some awesome stamp sets to play with which made it very easy to create some fun cards!

To celebrate, I will be giving away 2 sets of surprise blog candy. I can't tell you what it is yet...it's a surprise silly! :) I can tell you that it will be well worth your time! I will have a random picker draw from the comments under this post and another from the comments under my feature blog @ "The Greeting Farm. I will post pictures of the candy and names of the winners here on my blog on May 30th.

If you are a friend of my blog, hugs to you and please go to "The Greeting Farm" blog and check out the article on me and my cards. Don't forget to leave a comment there about the article or my cards, not the candy, so I will know you were there and to be entered in the drawing.

If you came here from The Greeting Farm" blog...Thanks! I would love it if you would become a follower and leave a note below so I will know you were here, and to get a chance at the blog candy drawing. If you didn't leave a comment when you were @ "The Greeting Farm jump back and leave a comment there about the article or my cards, not the candy, to get in that drawing too.

Also I would be thrilled if you would post the "Surprise Candy" on your blog and link back to me! You can use my badge in the upper right hand corner of my blog instead of a candy picture if you would like. :) Sorry about no picture....it's still a secret! LOL!

Sneak Peeks at some of the candy. I will add to it through the month and divide it into 2 drawings. Check back every now and then for more peeks.


Everyone LOVES Nesties!

These ar really cool ink daubers. I bought one for myself and LOVE it! It has 48 different colors of ink!!!!

If you would like to check out all of the cards in my archive, including all of my "TGF" cards, CLICK HERE to be able to scroll them all more easily.

Here is an updated photo of the candy collection to date. I will still be adding to it. I know it is hard to see everything that is in it...I guess that will be the surprise part since I keep spilling the beans! LOL. Remember..it will be split into two drawings so you get 2 chances at some of the goodies! Keep checking back. I will update this picture when I get more stuff! :)



Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs your way!
