It's Sunday night, and that means I have a new bunch of Blog Candy to give away!!!
But first, I want to say
CONGRATULATIONS TO WANDA!!!
Wanda, please email me with your mailing address, and I will get your package in the mail to you!
Wanda's name was picked for last week's prize. She left a nice comment for me, became a blog follower here, and spread the word. That's all you need to do! Just leave me a comment on this post, become a follower of my blog (if you have not already done so), and put a link to this post on your blog. If you do not have a blog please just tell someone about my giveaway. Next Sunday I will have a winner drawn for this week's candy and I will put up another prize for the following week!
I will show you some more pics of the candy for this week, but first I want to tell you about my fun news!
Yesterday I got a blog comment congratulating me for being a winner of the ODBD (Our Daily Bread Design) "Shining The Light" award- and I didn't even know I had won, lol!
I was sooo excited! This was the first time I have ever submitted a card to anything! I have been toying with the idea of submitting some cards to magazines, but just have not taken that first step. I have been receiving a lot of encouragement, however, from many of my card-making friends, and finally decided to put something out there. I absolutely love OBDB's stamps and have purchased many of their sets, as well as lots of other wonderful goodies from their website (click the Shining The Light badge on the right and it will take you to their site). The cards that are on their blog and in their gallery are just gorgeous, so I will admit, I was a little nervous sending one of mine in. So, imagine my surprise when I found out they chose mine as a winner! I can not tell you how happy that made me feel! So, although I am tooting my own horn a bit here, lol, I just want to give a big thank you to the judges who chose my card! I will say that by getting this award, I am now finally feeling ready to start submitting my cards to magazines in the hope of having something published. I guess this was the push I needed ;-)
Okay- so... I guess you want to see this week's blog candy, huh? Here you go:
Well, it's August(!) already. Although Summer is flying by all too quickly, it is still Summer, right? I think our temps last night hit a record low, and the highs today were only in the low to mid 70's here in Southern California. So, in an effort to remind myself that it really is still Summer, I have tried to put together a "Summery" group of things for you.
There are lots of summery flowers...
And a set of 4 little flower Cuttlebug embossing folders; a Stampin Up! stamp set called "Very Punny" which includes some cute little summery images; large pretty brads...
a set of six adorable acrylic stamps- all Summer images; a package of glittery Summer chipboard shapes, a package of white chipboard flowers...
And check out this t-shirt! I got it this weekend from the opening of the brand new Bloomingdale's Department Store in Santa Monica, CA!
So even if you couldn't make it to Sunny Southern California this Summer, at least you can look as if you did, lol! Isn't that fun?
Well, I know the week will pass quickly, so please just take a moment now and leave me a comment, become a follower, spread the news of my blog candy, and GOOD LUCK!
Thanks for visiting today! Hope you have a wonderful week! :-)
