A LITTLE BLOG CANDY September 17, 2008

OMW….I just realized I’m approaching 400,000 hits and I haven’t shown my appreciation lately to all those who visit.  I wish I could give a little something to everyone, but unfortunately I can’t:) 


How about a chance to win some Build-a-Brads by Stampin’ Up!

and some Taylored Expressions Twill Bundle ribbon. 

Both very yummy!

Just leave a comment.

I’ll draw one lucky winner on Thursday the 18th at 9pm.











This is a card I made last week that I forgot to post.  It is a really easy card that showcases new patterned paper, ribbon, punch, and embellishment all on one itty bitty adorable card.

Good Luck!

For card, all supplies Stampin’ Up!

STAMP SET:  Upsy Daisy 

CARDSTOCK:  Basic Gray, Night of Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Baha Breeze, Urban Garden Designer Series Paper.

INKS:  Craft Whisper White

ACCESSORIES:  Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Scallop Square Punch, Flower Designer Brads, Earth Elements Brads, Stampin’ Dimensionals.
