Okay - finally - blog candy

It's almost exactly a month late, but here's my celebration blog candy for my 2 year blogoversary!


I'm afraid that this will have to be a strictly North America prize as it is just too heavy to ship off the continent. So sorry about that to all my pals outside North America, but I hope you can understand.

I've also struggled to come up with something to make this more interesting than just leave a comment, blah, blah, blah. I think I'd like to make this a sketch challenge and add the following conditions.

  • Make a Valentine's card using the sketch - actually make 5-10 (or more) cards (they don't all have to follow the sketch) and then ...
  • Mail those cards to Pat Adams (The Rubbermaid) for her Valentines for Children's Hospital drive. She needs the cards by February 8 and I am going to trust you on this part of the challenge. Pat is a wonderful person as well as a very talented and creative lady. She works very hard to put this together every year and it is for a very good cause. Click HERE to go to Pat's blog and find out how to get your cards to her.
Here's the sketch:

Mr. Linky was giving me fits, so I have removed him. Instead, just send me a link to your cards in your comment so I can check them out! Thanks so much. Also, anyone know of a good tutorial on how to make Mr. Linky work properly? I have a platinum subscription and can't make heads or tails of the options. Yikes! I don't know if had something to do with the date on this post changing midstream or what, but anyway. Just put a link in your comment and we'll take it from there!

I hope this sounds like fun to you. It is my hope that it can be both fun and also give some Valentine cheer to some kids spending Valentine's Day in the hospital. You can get more information on Pat's drive by clicking HERE.

Thanks so much for visiting. This post will stay at the top until February 5 when I will use Random.org to select the winner. Like I said before, I'm putting you on the honor system and trusting that you will fully complete the challenge and not just make one card and not do anything more. I think this is a nice candy package and hope you feel it's worth a little bit of effort for a chance to win.
