A Card, a request and some CANDY!

Here's another card using the Love You Much set. I saw a couple of cards with the scalloped envelope on the front and I really wanted to give it a try. What do you think? (Sally, would you like to do this at your party?)

Recipe:
Stamps: Love You Much, Short & Sweet
Paper: Pretty in Pink, pink dp from SU prints pack, Whisper White, Real Red
Ink: Real Red, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: punches, cuttlebug folder, SU hearts punch, scalloped envelope die and Big Shot

Okay, so tomorrow is my blogoversary and this weekend my blog rolled over 12k hits - so let's celebrate! Here is my plan.


This is the base candy package. Every day starting tomorrow, Monday, December 29, and going till Friday, January 2, I will add one item to this package. You can post one entry per day by leaving me a comment (that's a total of 6 chances to win - counting today). I haven't done it like this before, so hopefully it won't turn into a mess. If you have ever won candy from me before, you know that I usually throw in a few extras anyway and I will probably do that this time too.

Nobody has had any comments on how the blog looks after it's facelift - maybe I'm the only one who can see it the new way? I'm still working on it as I really want to put my own background together and redo the banner so that it is more reflective of my own style. I know that there are some wonderful folks out there who will do a marvelous job of putting these things together for me, but I really am determined to figure this out for myself. I'm a d*(& webmaster for goodness sake, I should be able to do this!

Well I think I've been long winded enough for tonight. I have a thoughts/prayers request for you tonight. Allison (Stampin' When I Can) gave birth to a beautiful baby girl - Avery Judith - on Christmas. Avery has some heart issues and is needing surgery. Please say a few prayers and send some good thoughts towards Canada and keep them in your thoughts and prayers over the next few weeks. Thanks so much!

I love this card! Love that scallop envelope with looking like the hearts came out of it!

I think most do like me , view blogs through google, you dont see the changes when someone does them. But I have seen it now and it looks fantastic! Gives it more personality! Ive been tempted too to hire somebody to do mine, but keep think I should be able to..

Will definitely add baby to my prayer list too...and family!

I am sorry I did not notice the change. Honestly, I am too busy looking at the cards and things you show us.:)
But it is really pretty.

Love your blog, Chris!! The side borders are so gorgeous and I love what you've done with the new Valentine set. Beautiful!
I'll come back again and explore some more.

Thanks for your nice comment on the Dreams du Jour card. The branch is from a really old retired SU set called (Definitely Decorative) Branch and has a few birdhouses and leaves along with this stamp, not sure what year.

Hope your holiday season is wonderful!!
Joanne

Love the card :) Hope you're having a fabulous holiday season! I'm not a fan of flowers, but your blog looks great!

That card is adorable and I love your new blog look. I tried to look at it yesterday but my computer was misbehaving. Is there a trick to getting your header centered? I have tried everything I know of and when I use an image it is always off center a bit.

Beautiful card. I keep up with your blog in my reader so I hadn't seen the changes you had made, and wow it sure looks nice, I love the light soft look of it. It reminds me that I need to update my look. Thank you for the chance to win.
