Blog Candy for 5000 Hits!

BLOG CANDY ALERT! I'll leave this post at the top until the winner has been drawn, so please scroll down for new posts!

I have been having so much fun blogging this summer, and I am so amazed that people are visiting. I notice that I'm almost at 5000 hits. I really hope you enjoy my blog, and I appreciate the kind comments you leave.

So to thank you for visiting, I am offering up some blog candy. What's included? Well, I've got an assortment of crafting goodies here. There are some 6 x 6 sheets of double-sided SU! designer paper, some Accents & Elements sticker sheets, pocket notes with envelopes, two Michael's stamps, a SU! "hand-stamped" stamp, a black Stampin' Spot, some assorted SU! buttons and brads and some card embellishments that came in a card-making kit I got at Costco! I hope that sounds enticing!

So what do you need to do to win this? I saw this idea on someone else's blog (I'm afraid I can't remember which one), and I thought it was great. I think it's so cool that stampers and scrappers all over the world are connected by blogging, so all you need to do is leave a comment on this post and tell me where you're from (you don't need to leave a city name if you don't want to - just a province/state or country). Also, please make sure I have a way to contact you if you win.

I'll leave this open until Wednesday night, and I'll use Random.org to choose a winner on Thursday morning.

Yes ... blogging can be a lot of fun! It allows you to share and to express your creativity in a very unique way ... and gives the freedom of whatever time you have to give with no further expectations! You're doing a splendid job ... I LOVE your header & tulips! Mmmmmmm!

Thanks for visiting me earlier at "Savor the Journey"! And congrats on your first 5,000!
