Never done before --- “Blog Candy” offering!


Because...

Tomorrow...April 16th...is my wedding anniversary. My wonderful husband and I have been married 15 years!

This August, we’re moving from the Washington, D.C. area to Laramie, Wyoming so my husband can fulfill his dream of being a full time Law Professor. With a limited moving allowance, the aforementioned "wonderful" husband has informed me that...I can’t possibly move/take/haul all of my “stuff.”

I have this extra set of clear stamps that I purchased by mistake (already had the set!) and can’t return (lost the receipt!) and since "I can't possibly take it with me" to Laramie…I thought I’d offer it up as candy because...in some cultures, when someone has a celebration "they" bring cake or little gifts to their friends or to the people they work with.

So…to celebrate the 15 years being married to my darling husband and the many more that are yet to come---I’d like to offer this…

Hopefully you can see everything clearly. Here’s what you get (all in a striped green and blue fabric covered "hat box"...

Set of 12 clear “Dog” stamps by Inkadinkado

Ribbon --- Approximately 6 yards from Michaels, AC Moore, or G-Street Fabrics

Buttons (pink, green, brown and doggie themed)
Yellow flower table confetti (from Bride’s Magazine)
Sheet of baby pink stickers --- Mosaic Tile’s Play


If you like what you see…just leave a little post to say “hi” by midnight, EST Sunday, April 19.

I’ve never done anything like this before…and don’t even know if anyone will stop by to visit or participate, but…even if you’re the only visitor and you like what you see…you win!

(I’m going to try and figure out this random integer thingy…otherwise I’ll have my 12 year old son pull a number out of a hat…how’s that for high tech!!)

Thanks for stopping in...

Hi! I've been admiring your stuff on the Flickr Hero Arts and Caardvarks pool and think it is great! I don't submit anything myself; I'm just an observer.

Love the dog stamps! I have a Great Dane and have been looking for some cool dog stuff.

Hi Have just found your blog and am pleased to visit. You do some beautiful work. I feel for you moving... don't know what I'd do as we have lived in the same house for 15 years now.... had to buy a BIG 3 door pantry type cupboard for my stuff recently.
anyway have enjoyed "meeting" you and look forward to hearing more about your crafting and your live. Cheers

Well Happy Anniversary! 15 years is a big deal!! Good Luck with the move - I don't envy you there as I've done it way more times than I could ever care to. I hope you get settled in and feel at home in no time!

Hello, here I am. What a very generous blog candy offer. I am determined to do a giveaway myself one day soon too. You've inspired me. Loving your blog as always. :)

Hi there - How thoughtful to have a wonderful give-away. Moving is so many things - packing, unpacking, giving away stuff, leaving valued friends, familiar things, but also the joy of exploring new places, seeing new things, meeting new friends, sending emails to update old friends, all the joys of seeing things with "new" eyes.

Good luck in your move, be sure to take enough to continue your beautiful work:)

See you on HA flickr:)

I'll post your give-away on my blog. And I hope you posted your give-away on the HA flickr group.
