CELEBRATION BLOG CANDY!!

Okay all you faithful readers!! Time to be rewarded for your efforts! Today I am finally giving away my first BLOG CANDY!! This is celebration for several things...

First, that I have finally gotten over the last big-life-hurdle of preparing for, teaching at and attending Close to My Heart's Annual Convention. (not that more hurdles won't come my way really soon - but I gotta take a breath at sometime, right?)

Next, that I have actually posting on my blog again after a six month absence.

Last, (and most importantly) I am now celebrating my 10th YEAR with Close to my Heart!!

All these things seemed reason enough to celebrate with you and offer you some fabulous prizes and goodies! (Oh - and shamelessly recruit some new followers and readers!)

So here is what I have for one lucky winner:

A beautiful array of handmade items from me!!
You will get 2 cards with envelopes, once card box and one absolutely adorable paper cupcake all created from our gorgeous Sophia My Reflections Level 2 paper pack!

Wanna know how you could enter to win?

Become a follower!!
Then leave a comment telling me that you did or that you already are a smart cookie and you've been following me. :) For another chance to win these fabulous prizes...give me a shout-out on your blog and post a link to my Blog Candy post - of course you'll need to leave another comment telling me that you did, along with your blog address (if you don't - I won't know that you did and you miss your extra chance to win!)

I will leave my very first Blog Candy contest open until July 31st. On that day, I will have my very handsome 8-year-old assistant draw a name and then I'll announce the winner!

In the meantime, keep hanging in here with me! I am in the process of taking photos of all my convention artwork and will begin posting it all really - really soon!!
