Time For Blog Candy!

I just noticed that I'm getting close to 1000 hits on my blog! I'm very excited, since I didn't know if anyone would even bother to look at my blog, and now so many of you have been checking it out! Thank you so much for taking the time to look and to leave comments. I appreciate the encouragement.

So to celebrate, I will be giving away some blog candy! I've been trying to figure out what would be a good thing to give for this, and I'm stumped! I don't have a lot of unopened supplies, so I can't really give that right now. I think it will probably be some hand-made cards (maybe a pouch of cards using some of SU!'s new designer paper). Anyway, if you'd like to win some free stuff, leave a comment for me and tell me what your favourite thing about summer is. I'll do a random draw next Wednesday for the prize, so make sure you post a comment by then.

Edited to add photos and the following:

I've decided what the blog candy is! I've made this pouch of cards using the Brocade Background paper and the Baroque Motifs set. The pouch is made using a 6 x 6 scrapbook page protector with the ring holes cut off. Then I added an insert and dry embossed on the flap. There are six cards with decorated envelopes in the pouch. I hope you like it!

Remember you have until Wednesday night to add a comment telling me what you like about summer for a chance to win. I'll randomly select a person on Thursday morning and post the winner that day. Good luck!

Hi Shannon!

Thanks for visiting my blog and tagging me today! I've got to say, you have the cutest boys.

My favorite thing about summer is BBQs! We get more than our fair share of rain here so when we can cook outdoors, it's pure heaven.

Well, being a teacher my fave thing about summer is getting the chance to travel, read, and relax (about the only thing I have done this summer though is travel!)

I don't know if I can choose one thing that is my favorite about summer, so I'll give you a few things. I love fresh fruits and veggies, having a yard sale, long sunny days, vacation, an ice cold beer on a hot day and celebrating our anniversary and my birthday.

Hi!
My favorite thing about summer is being off work! Now, don't get me wrong, I love my job...but 2 months off is just awesome! I work at an elementary school with special needs kids. It's really great to have the time to recharge my batteries and spend some time with my family.
Hope you're having a great summer!

My favorite thing about summer is all the fresh, local produce. Strawberries, blueberries, corn, tomatoes, etc. all picked from the garden and onto the table. So delicious! Thanks for offering blog candy!

My favorite part of summer is everything is green. The kids can play outside and my DH is delighted with his veg. garden. If hes happy...I'm happy!
Your children would be a great give away! LOL! They sure look like a couple cuties! I have 8 grandkids and I love them all to death. They have made life just plain funny...they make you laugh.

Monika said...

Hello, my favourite thing about summer is... just to enjoy the outdoors, gardening and seeing how everything grows.

KayellWY said...

My favorite thing about summer, besides the warmth, is the colors of summer. I much prefer the color green to the drab browns and leafless trees of winter. Maybe that's why I like so much color in my card making. :)

Healthy Family said...

Sorry I was all caught up in reading your material that I forgot to leave you with one of my comments what I like about summer is my birthday, my anniversary, and hearing the kid's play and get along outside in the pool. Also, we love to eat my homemade chocolate ice cream cookies!! I can't make them fast enough!

Jan Scholl said...

Carrie Gaskin said...

Congrats to you! Keep up the great work.

My fave thing about summer? Right now? Well it's that my husband has taken the summer off work. We have him home everyday! Can't ask for more than that.

Laura said...

Hi! I love summer ... period. :) And why? BBQs, outside play without coats, chasing my toddler around her baby pool, and ice cream cones! Mmm! :)

Shannon K said...

I love summer because I can sleep in!! I don't have to get kids ready for school. I also like that we can swim everyday! It is too hot in Texas to do too much outside unless you are wet!!

Colleen, PA said...

My favorite thing about summer, hands down, is the beach. My family (Mom, Dad, and 2 sisters)has vacationed at Sea Isle City, NJ every year (since I've been born) and we continue the tradition even now that we all have families of our own. It's so much fun to have a sleep-over with all of my neices and nephews for one week straight. They love it too!

Hello! 1000 visitors is exciting! I have a new blog too, it's very fun!

My favorite thing about summer is when it's over. I live in Arizona and it was 125 degrees one day last week! November 1st is the first day of cooler weather around here. Can't wait!

Becky said...

Thanks for sharing your creative work! Right now, my favorite thing about summer is visiting my family with my 2 young kids. Unfortunately, that means I have to endure Texas' hot & humid weather, but we beat it today with a visit to the pool! The kids loved it!

Elaine said...

I love that we have longer days in summer...I always wake up early in the summer just so I can have more time to myself!

PENNY said...

I love driving to the orchards and picking cherries or strawberries with the family. But our weekend camp trips are what I enjoy the most.

I just found your site this morning (7/16/07). What wonderful projects! I love sunshine and being able to be outside in summer. I enjoy my patio, all the flowers and the kick back lifestyle that summer affords.
