Blog Candy.......from Me

This post is now closed. Blog candy winner will be posted on 6/25 post.

I'm so excited ...I've been a little nervous, but just can't wait any longer! I've come up with a good excuse - er...I mean -reason to give away some blog candy!!! Isn't this fun?? Ohhhh...I have to settle down!! Taking a deep breath....Ok, let me start over:

Good morning to everyone. To celebrate over 3000 hits to my blog, I am offering goodies! Let me tell you what I have here:

Embossed Heart Punch by Martha Stewart
A huge assortment of eyelets
1 yard each of 23 ribbons
Medallion Clear Stamps by Basic Grey
Thanksgiving Clear Stamps by Clear Dollar
Faith Greetings Clear Set by The Paper Co Studio
Shapeabilities Butterflies by Spellbinders

Would you like a chance to win? Here's what I'd like you to do. Leave a comment here telling me your favorite book (other than the Bible) AND also post a link to this post on your blog. Deadline for doing this will be midnight EST on 6/24. On 6/25 Random Integer will choose a winner. One entry per person, please. I will keep this post at the top of my blog through the 24th, but you might want to check below it for a posted card. :)

I know this will make a long post, but I just have to tell you: The Lord has blessed me abundantly with not just the stuff that let's me stamp & blog, but also with my stamping buddies here at home & now with you who take the time to look at my posts. He created us to love beautiful, colorful things & even gave us the creativity to express it. It is my deep desire to honor Him with this hobby & be an encouragement to the people He allows to cross my path. Thanks for your part in His plan to give me some fun, too!

Edit: I just heard from another blog that sometimes those computer generated name drawing things don't like the first number or the last number. Sooooo, I will not use Random Interger, but will put everyone's name in a hat.

Oh wow--I just found your blog & I love it! I'm adding myself as one of your followers, will make an announcement for your blog candy on my blog as well as link your blog as one that I follow on the side of my blog.

Now, my favorite book. I always put the Bible, because it is. However, since I can't use that one, I'll say The River by Edward Hooper. It's out of print, but I'm reading it again for the 2nd time.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful talents!

Hi Laurie,

Congratulations on your 3000 hits. I don't have an absolute favourite book and it's a long time since I read a book for myself. My son recently got the full set of Spiderwick Chronicles which I thought were great but a bit scary at times. We get a lot of 'Charlie & Lola' by Lauren Child in our house too.

No wonder mum's minds turn to mush.

This is some perfect candy! I am so thrilled to hear that you are using your gifts and talents to crate beautiful creations. I think we should be more honouring to the Lord in all we do, including stamping and creating. My collection is not that extensive, but I do my best to create for the enjoyment of others. I must say, my favourite book that I have read recently was Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. Sad story, but it was riveting. I will be back to see more of your blog, and hope you will come and check out mine!
