Message from Mars - Blog Candy is Here


You're Out of This World!!!

I know I'm no blogging superstar, but gosh darn it, I'm just tickled pink that my counter says I've had over 1000 hits!

(okay, I'm not sure how many of those are actually me, but hey, I still think it's pretty cool)

Since it seems to be a bit of a tradition in the stampin' blog community, I'm announcing the first of my BLOG CANDY giveaways!

I've got an idea of what it's gonna be, but haven't taken a picture yet. I promise that I'll post the prize soon. ETA: PICTURES ARE NOW POSTED.... SCROLL DOWN TO SEE!

So here's the deal - leave a comment on this post before midnight (Eastern Standard Time over here in Massachusetts) ETA: that's midnight on Tuesday, July 17, and I'll pick a random number on WEDNESDAY, JULY 18 for the giveaway. If you want to, let me know where you're from - I love that we can all visit and share our ideas and creations from across the country and the world!

Thanks for stopping by!

Card Credits: Stamps - Rubber Soul; Cardstock - Stampin' Up! (Kraft, Bashful Blue, Whisper White); Patterned Paper - American Crafts; Ink - Versacraft Black, Stampin' Up! Markers for coloring; Accessories and Extras - Stampin' Dimensionals, Moss Gingham Ribbon, Sakura Glaze Pen (clear), Marvy Scalloped punch, Oval punch, Clear Embossing Powder

Without further ado, here's what's in store for the lucky winner:



Envelope seals from Martha Stewart and some ribbon with lots of yummy texture!

Two sheets of Scenic Route alphabet stickers and some clear stamps!

Wait... there's more...

Some awesome chipboard pieces from We R Memory Keepers!

Okay, that's it.....
