Blog Candy

Oy vey, what a crazy last couple of weeks! I haven't done much blogging because I'm having camera issues. The flash on my digital camera died not too long ago, so I replaced it but I've been struggling with the new one. It takes great pictures, but apparently when I transfer the pictures, I have to manually turn off the camera (my old one powered down on its own). I ran out the batteries the first day! I replaced the batteries but kept getting errors about them. I'm guessing it has something to do with the cheap-o batteries I bought at the dollar spot at Target. So while I was battling this issue, I tried to use my husband's camera. For some reason, though, it refused to transfer the pictures to my computer!! I now have some decent batteries in my new camera and things seem to be back to normal. So I can post some more of my projects!!

Well, in the spirit of thanksgiving, here's a card I made earlier this week:

And that leads me to my blog candy.....

To celebrate passing 10,000 hits on my blog and to thank all of you for helping me achieve that milestone, I'm offering my very first blog candy. Included is a retired stamp set "Make It Count," an adhesive remover (fabulous little tool!!), a small "Happiness" decor elements in white and a hand stamped post-it note holder. To win, just leave me a comment with something you're grateful for this year. Post your comment by Saturday, November 15th at 10:00 p.m. EST and I'll announce the winner on Sunday. Good luck!

Love your blog; I don't post often but I do peek in from time to time!

I'm totally grateful for all the obvious things: friends, family, good health ... but I'm also grateful for all the inspiration and encouragement I get from my fellow stampers/crafters day in and day out. About everything ... not just stamping. Sometimes it's almost like the stamping and card making is incidental, KWIM?

Thanks for the fun candy offering; congrats on your blogstone and here's to 10,000 more!

~Hugs, Deb

Wow! Congrats on your 10,000 hits! That is so awesome! I'm grateful for so many things that it is hard to narrow down. I think I'm grateful most for my family though!!

Thanks again for a chance to win some blog candy!!

Congratulations on 10,000 hits! Your blog is always an inspiration.

Aside from being thankful for the blessing of family and friends...especially my husband and two little boys, I am thankful that I have a creative outlet that helps me to keep my sanity!

There are many days that I am so grateful to be able to "escape" to the peace and quiet and relaxation of stamping!

Congratulations again, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Congrats Marilyn! And awesome blog candy you are offering! You should rig it so that I win so that you don't have to ship it! J/k haha...

This year, I am so grateful that I have a stable job especially at a time when so many people have lost their jobs or their jobs are in jeopardy...I'm also grateful for my fabulous up line (wink wink)

funny story regarding your camera problems, but not to you.

I like how you embossed image vs. coloring it.

Congrats on 10,000 hits. I am grateful for my wonderful husband, kids and friends (including all my blog buddies)

I am grateful that with all the family health issues we have been experiencing lately, that everyone is still with us as we approach the holidays. I am also grateful that I have a job even though it is extremely stressful...you know what I am talking about :-)

You are my idol & total inspiration! Because of you, I have found an outlet for all of my spare time ... LOL I am cracking myself up here :-)

10,000 hits - how cool is that! Congrats and thanks for being such an awesome friend!

Love ya!

I am so grateful for my dd's pregnancy this year. After several miscarriages, finally a specialist thinks he found out why and has a treatment plan. She is at 33 wks and was in the hospital last week, but we continue to hope that she can wait just a little longer. This little guy will indeed be the miracle baby of our prayers.

So many other things to be thankful as well--but I won't write a complete novel here. Congrats on all your hits. I stop by every once in awhile to check out your awesome talent! Darlene
