Oh my dear, my shutters are shabby!! (BLOG CANDY and a video!)

Hello!!! I am SO excited today. Why?! Because I am giving away my first blog candy! I hit 10,000 hits, and to thank you, I am giving stuff away! :) I am so grateful to all of you that come visit, it seriously makes me so happy, and I hope this is a good way to thank you!

To start off, here is a video I made using the blog candy! I hope you enjoy it!!



And here is the card:

I made another "scene" type card. I am having fun doing these!

How cute is that deer? Want it? Keep scrolling!

This butterfly was made with alcohol inks using techniques from this week's Thinking Inking class. I need more alcohol inks now because they are so FUN!

Like that color on the grass? Keep scrolling!!

:)

Now on to the main event!

I am giving away the Sassafras Lass "Oh My Dear" clear stamp set and a shabby shutters Distress Ink pad. Does the title make sense now?! :)

So here is how you can win this fun prize:

2. Post an entry linking to this blog candy on your blog, come back and leave another comment with a link to your blog 
3. Follow me via Google Reader or whatever you might use and leave another comment saying which way you followed! If you already follow me, let me know that too! :)

That's right. There are three ways to enter, which means you can triple your chances of winning! I will choose a winner randomly, so remember to comment three times if you do all three options, so you will be entered all three times!

You have until Monday July 20th at 11:59PM PST to enter. I will pick a winner on Tuesday the 21st!

Once again, I am so excited. Thank you so much for your visits and comments and for always making me smile!

  35. I want to win that stamp set, I've never seen it before, even at Michaels. I love that the deer is Bambi-like.

    I've just been picking up lots of Colorbok Friendly Forest things at Michaels, the images make me smile. What would make me smile even more is if I find a Friendly Forest 12x12 album, which I'm told there is one, but I've never seen it...

    Great card!!
