Blog Candy Sponsored by: Wild Orchid Crafts!!!! A new card too! ;)

THIS CANDY IS NOW CLOSED.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Do you ever get that feeling you're being watched?
I got an email from Paul of Wild Orchid Crafts and he said that he and his wife Siri had been following my blog for about 3 months now! No...I didn't really have a feeling of being watched but now that I know they have been watching..I feel honored!
Speaking of feeling honored...they even put my blinky on the shop's sidebar!!!
They asked if they could sponsor my blog with some Wild Orchid Crafts goodies. Well heck yah!!! Who in their right mind would say no to something that awesome?
I told Paul that my followers would LOVE it!
Since my birthday is the 17th, I will just consider this my birthday blog candy.
Thanks Paul and Siri...perfect timing!
Here is the generous offerings that they will send the lucky winner.


To be enterd in the candy is as easy as 1...2...3!
1.)  Become a follower of my blog if you aren't already.
2.) Put a picture of the candy in your sidebar with a link back to my blog.
3.) Come back here and comment that you have posted it so I can come visit you.
Pretty simple!  ;)
