10,000 hits and some blog candy to celebrate!

Where to begin...I am so excited that 10,000 hits have been made on my blog in just a few short months. It amazes me that people are actually interested in what I am creating- still kinda blows my mind LOL. Thank you all for your supportive comments. Now for the good stuff... to celebrate going over the 10,000 mark I have some cool blog candy to offer you. Now this is not nearly the extent of what Cammie's blog has but I hope you will like it none the less. A couple months ago I received a duplicate Hanna Stamps Jump for Joy set and Kristi gave me permission to use it as blog candy. I originally thought I would be using it for something else but plans changed (for the better) and I thought this would be the perfect occasion to use it. So the blog candy is Hanna Stamps Jump for Joy clear stamp set and an unmounted witch Sophie/Riley. That image is soooo cute but my family and I don't do Halloween (ok, pick up your jaws now LOL) and I thought this adorable stamp would get some more love in a new home. Ok, so how do you win? Simple really...just leave me a comment on this post and tell me what your favorite hanna or riley stamp is. Easy right? I will keep this open through Saturday September 27 and pick the winner on Sunday and post it here on my blog. You see there just may be something else brewing for next week???



Oh yes, today is my day to post on the DRS blog so be sure to check it out if you have a minute. I highlighted a couple of the bg stamps.

Last but not least, I have been tagged! It is the first time. The incredibly talented Crissy Armstrong of High Hopes stamps (I can't believe she visits MY blog LOL!) tagged me so I am coming up with my post for that and will have that up in the next couple days depending on time factors. I am preparing some sneak peeks for hanna and some publication submissions so we'll see. Speaking of publications, I have had 2 more cards accepted so I was preparing to send the package out. I am pretty excited- these 2 will be featured in Papercrafts Stamp It on sale in late Feb. The only thing I am bummed about is that they are not for any of the companies I design for either. It is not for lack of trying as I submitted some from all 3 companies but they were not picked- :(

Ok, have a simply terrific day and good luck to everyone who enters my drawing.

My favorite Hanna is the very first one the shopping Hanna. I own a lot of Hanna Stamps, but that one is just so perfect! How could one resist her cute shopping outfit possibilities! Now I think my favorite Riley would have to be the baking one, just so perfect as well.
