75K Blog Candy

My 50K Blog Candy is still unclaimed, so it's back up for grabs!

To be entered in the drawing for this blog candy, please leave a comment on this post and tell me which new stamp set in the Spring-Summer catalog is your favorite. (Please include your email address with your comment so I can contact you if you win!) I'll use to select one winner on Wednesday, Feb 18 at 9:00 pm (Central Time).

75K Blog Candy includes:

  • So Many Scallops stamp set
  • Love & Happiness Rub-Ons (includes one sheet in each color: Black, White, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive)
  • Prints Designers Series Paper (five 6x6 squares in each color: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Rose Red, and Almost Amethyst)
  • Purely Pomegranate Love Notes & Envelopes (10)
I'm always looking at the "numbers", so for those of you who are also interested, here are some more blog stats, as of today, 2-15-09:

  • Days Blogging: 278
  • # of Posts: 265
  • # of Hits: 78,500

It amazes me some days to watch the hit counter. It's like having one of those Sally Field moments, "You like me! You really like me!". Knowing you're out there and following my creative journey keeps me motivated to stamp and continue to share.

"Hoppy for You" with the matching Simply Scrappin' Kit is FUN! Can't wait to play and play and play!!! I'm the March hostess for my Stamp Club - so I'm waiting (impatiently) until then to put in my order. (A close second - the hostess set I plan to get - "A Little Somethin'") Thanks for great cards & posts day-to-day!

I keep going back to the Thoughts and Prayers set every time I try to narrow down what I want/can order. I hate having to stick to a budget! I love checking out your site every day to see what new ideas you have! Thanks for the chance to win some great 'candy!'

I love the Sweet Stems set. It's simple and versatile and looks great with the raspberry tart DSP.

Love your blog!

I am all about the Just Jawing stamp set. As a rock-n-roll girl, it was great to find a stamp that wasn't all flowers and flourishes. I am new to the whole stamping thing and am having an absolute blast!

Happy creating!

PS What a great blog! I'm learning tons. ;-)

While it's hard to choose, my favorite set is Trendy Trees. I've got a "thing" for trees:)

It's hard to narrow it down to just one but today it is Cheep Talk. It is so cheery and makes a great get well, birthday, or thinking of you card.

Enjoy browsing your blog. Thanks for sharing!

Well, they are all my favorite! However, if I have to pick one set - Park Avenue Patterns - very cool!
Love your blog! Amazing ideas! Thank you!

I have been following your stamping blog for a few months now. You have some really nice cards. You are a very talented and creative stamper.

I have soooo many favorites...but I think I am going to have to go with "Just Buzzing By". When I saw this stamp set, I had to buy it right away.

Thank You for sharing with us!
