Hugs & Smiles and BLOG CANDY

19 Feb
**** BLOG CANDY is now closed.****
****Please click……….HERE for the winner.****

I have found some of the most awesome paper IMHO. I am a fabric lover….love some of the new fresh and funky fabrics that you can purchase….but I am no longer a sewer (is that a word?) I use to sew, make cards, and do all kinds of other crafty things until a couple of years ago. I only do a little scarp booking and mostly make Cards with a few alterable here are there….but some of my favorite fabrics have been Heather Baileys and I feel in love with her style….Fresh and Funky. When I saw that she has some of her fabric patterns turned into scrap booking supplies….I was beyond happy! So I said all this to say that the fun, bright, colorful, fresh and funky paper on my card are from Heather Bailey’s scrap booking/fabric line. Way to cool IMO! I did purchase some of fabric and have the urge to break out my sewing machine…I am feeling a funky purse coming my way.

I made a set of these cards for a friend that will be taking a job outside of the state. We are meeting for coffee today and wanted to send her away with a little gift.

Now on to the good stuff….I am offering BLOG CANDY ! A set of Gina K’s “Sweetest Blessings“.

All you need to do is leave a comment and please tell me what your favorite sweet treat is. (Only one comment per person please.) I will post the winner on Tuesday, February 24, 2009. That’s it… easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Thanks for all of your support. Have a great day and Many Blessings!


Deets: Stamps: Sweetest Blessings by Gina K. Paper: Heather Bailey – Fresh Cuts, PTI CS. Ink: Black Noir, and Copics. Accessories: Circle Nesties.

    Hi Mary ๐Ÿ™‚I’m another person who has been sent here from Keri’s blog – she’s doing a great job I notice! This is my first (but certainly not last) visit to your blog and I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve seen so far, especially your ‘daily blessing’. My favorite sweet treat? Ooh, it’s a toss up between Cup Cakes and Lemon Meringue Pie – hard to choose, but I think Lemon Meringe Pie. I am, unfortunately, a total sweet tooth! Thanks for the chance to win blog candy.Blessings, Anne. dinkuminkum at yahoo dot co dot nz.

    If it isn’t chocolate I don’t waste my calories on it. I think any type of gooey brownie would be my easy favorite or brownie cheesecake is to die for.
