Over 1000 Hits and The Blog Candy I Promised!

It's been a very busy weekend and I have been neglecting my blog. Even as I sit here and type I am so exhausted all I can think about is bed and it's only 8:30pm! Really 9:30, but still, I'm an old fart. I ran all of my errands yesterday with my 4 year old in tow in torrential downpours and fierce whipping wind. Then after dinner I made the most delicious dessert! I totally blew Weight Watchers this weekend!! You must check out The Pioneer Woman Cooks and her sister site Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. I can hardly pull myself away from it!! Today we celebrated my brothers birthday and I said "why don't you just come here for dinner" since my mom's place is smaller...what was I thinking? I did all of the cooking but thankfully his girlfriend did most of the dishwashing, then cleaned up again after dessert only to start on the laundry I had been putting off. So, weary and bleary, here I am, thinking of you!

Okay so I exceeded 1000 hits over the weekend and this milestone is quite exciting for me! I have a nice little package put together for blog candy to celebrate!


Included in this prize package are two templates, one for two different sized take-out boxes and the other for party favor boxes, 4 bar notes cards and matching envelopes, a lovely assortment of summer party colored ribbons and fibers, and two of the cutest penguin stamps from Imaginisce .

I love these penguins and all the matching paper and embellishments, but I was too slow to get to my LSS and I was lucky I got what I did as the whole line sold out quickly...but I made sure I picked up a couple extra penguins because I knew someone out there would want them.

Here's two small square cards I whipped up with mine.
I took my color que from the matching paper. They were both colored with Copics and accented with Stickles...her on her fabulous grass skirt in Lime, and him on his tasty popsicle with Icicle. The cardstock is Bazzill and the ribbon from my stash. The turquoise is from the blog candy package I won from Linsey recently! I cut and extra popsicle from the dp and popped it up on the boy card and his shorts and pop are accented with the Sakura stardust pen. I used a 1" circle punch and punched out a flower from the dp and popped it up on her card too using some yellow Stickles in the center of the flower.

Okay so to enter the blog candy giveaway how about just leaving me a comment. Especially if you're one who just likes to browse and never leaves a comment...and if you like my blog, let me know. If you don't, well, don't tell me because then I might cry. Nah, just kidding. I will pick a random winner on Wednesday morning. Have a great night!
