WINNERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED AND THE BLOG CANDY CONTEST IS CLOSED. See the entry for Friday, Sept 4th for the winners!

I am so tickled that I have over 3,000 visits to my blog! So I decided that we should celebrate!

I was shopping (online) and happened across this darling unmounted stamp from Hambo. Doesn't it make the most darling card? happened to be on sale and I decided that I would order three instead of one and share with my cyber friends! That's TWO winners. I'll post the video of the drawing on Friday.

Here's how you can enter!

1. Make a comment on this post (one entry)
2. Put a post on YOUR blog telling others about the candy (one entry). Include the link to your blog on your original comment to be counted!

Your name will go on a slip of paper and into a big bowl so even early posters have a great chance!

If you are "anomynous" in the comment area, please leave your e-mail addy. You can replace the @ and the . with words instead if you wish (i.e. mommy at msn dot com)

I will leave the candy contest open until September 4th, noon (Pacific Time).

The background on the card is called Simple Sumi and it is one of my favorite techniques from the Technique Junkie newsletters! It was colored with copic markers.

Don't you just love Hambo stamps? They have the funniest sayings. Your cute card really does the stamp justice. I don't have a blog so I can't post the link-does that still count?
