Some Of My Favorite Creations To Date

Saturday, June 5, 2010

"I will be MIA for awhile, but I've got " MEGA multi company blog candy!!!!!

This Candy is now closed.

Hello my friends!
I will be in the hospital for about 5 or 6 days for surgery, and will miss seeing all of your sweet comments! I am the type that has to check my computer every time I pass it to see if there are any new ones! LOL!
I have some cards set to auto post, but this post will remain on top until the candy draw, so make sure and scroll down to see my newer stuff!
Like, I said, I love comments so here's the scoop....I am hoping for so many comments by the time I get home (and feel like blogging) that I can't read them all in one setting. I have 6 weeks recovery time off from work and plan on hitting everyone's blog who was so kind to spread some love my way, and leave you a comment too! That should give me plenty to do with my time off! :)
I have been blessed to be on a lot of awesome design teams, past and present! A bunch of them wanted to help me out with my candy offerings! I don't have pictures of all of the candy's because some of them will ship or download directly to you, and some of them will be "you picks". For the ones that don't have pictures, click on the links to see what you can pick from!

Here is a list of what one lucky person will win from my wonderful  design team companies.

Patricia @ The Paper Temptress is offering a special "True's Faves" package of MY favorite TPT papers!
She will also be selling the "True's Faves" package for a special price @ her store!
It is a bit of a mish-mash assortment but that's me! They are all jaw-droppingly beautiful!
The colors on the stack aren't showing up the right colors for some reason but you can click HERE to see a list of colors on TPT blog.
Notice that pretty label?  Patricia asked me to design the label for her marketing packages. Too cool! :)

Bonnie @ Really Reasonable Ribbons has donated this beautiful 10 piece assortment of pretty ribbons! Yards and yards of beauty!

I keep creating with Cuddly Buddly Crafts
Kim @ Cuddly Buddly is donating these 3 rubber stamps!
As a bonus, she wants me to draw the names of 3 more people to receive free digital stamp downloads and the matching digi papers! How cool is that?!?

Here is another bonus....3 more lucky winners will win a set of April Blossom Designables by Barbara Anne Williams of Bits of Ivory, distributed by Cuddly Buddly Crafts.
Cuddly Buddly has started up a "Work With Us" program that allows artists to see their digis through them and Barbara is one of those awesome artists!

Shawne @ Studio 313 Exclusive Creations is giving away $25.00 worth of digis of your choice!
A brand new digi shop with ADORABLE images!

Karen @ Charmed Cards and Crafts is pitching in a digi collection (approx. 10 images!) of your choice.
You are going to have a hard time picking from all of these wonderful collections! :)

Della @ I Brake For Stamps gave me a wonderful 8" by 10" sheet of Rare Garden Image stamps!
Click on the stamp set link above then scroll down to see samples made with this set. They ROCK!!!!

Tracey @ Fred She Said  is giving away a $5.00 gift certificate to her shop!
Check out her adorable freebies too! You'll be hooked on Fred!

love cuttlebug challenge blinkie
Maggie from the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog is donating some Cuttlebug embossing folders!
They have some fun challenges. You should play along sometime!

Here are my offerings:
100  handmade mulberry flowers and leaves. Assorted sizes and colors!
I just ordered a huge amount of these from The United Kingdom and thought I would share. Foreign flowers! Tehehehee!

If you are the lucky winner of all of these fun goodies, you will have everything you need to make dozens and dozens of beautiful cards!

How do you enter you ask? 
#1 ~ Become a follower (if you aren't already).
#2 ~ Post a picture of my MEGA Multi Company Blog Candy in your sidebar with the following link back to mine. 

Get an extra entry if you do a quick post on your blog also!!!

#3 ~ Come back here and leave a comment to let me know you have done it.
I hope you will grab a cup of coffee or tea, set back, take a peek around my archives, and comment on some cards too! Don't worry... strolling through my archives is not mandatory. I just appreciate the fact that you are here!
#4 ~ Keep me in your thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery!  ;)

I hope you will help me spread the word. Put it in your sidebars, post it on a blog post, mention it in forums you visit! Just wherever you can will be appreciated!
I think this is going to be a lot of fun!

Thanks so much to my wonderful sponsors and  to all of my friends for your visits and well wishes.
I will come around and visit your blogs as soon as I can!
True :D

Lori said...

This is an incredibly generous candy from many lovely people! Thank you for offering it : )

You already have a wonderful response here, True! By the time you get back home and ready to read, you will be nodding off and have to come back many times to go through all of the comments : )

I do pray for you! May the surgeon's hands be steady and controlled by God, bringing about the perfect results that He already has planned for you. May you receive amazingly warm and compassionate nurses to take care of you. May your pain level be so small that it even surprises you! Jesus has healed me from cancer (without doctors) and I know that He can heal you too! May His peace rest upon your heart and mind, bringing you assurance that you are in very good hands. In Jesus' Name - Amen!

Much love and healing prayers ~

Beautiful Greetings said...

I have been thinking of you True! I hope you are on the mend and will heal quickly. You are missed :) I have all your goodies up on my blog. This is an amazing stash I do have to say.

True, best wishes for a speedy recovery. My hubby just had a knee replacement, so I know about bouncing back from surgery. Your blog candy is very generous, but I think there are many people who would have written kind thoughts to you even without it.
God bless you, True.
