Thanks for looking!
Back to our regulary scheduled program.............................
*** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** ***
You, who have been patiently waiting on the edge of your chairs to find out what the candy is, can finally stop holding your breath (you are probably quite blue by now!)...
I've decided that in honor of my TWO whole years in Blogland, I'm going to give away two blog candies. I've also decided that the candies will be the same!
Drumroll please..... both candies will be a $50 gift card to the on-line store of their choice! So... two lucky people will soon be shopping!!!
This blog candy starts today, and will run through Friday, October 8th. The winner will be announced on October 9th! Good luck to everyone!!!
Here is what you need to do:
1. Comment on this post.
You do not need to sign up to follow. You do not need to post my candy on your blog and spread the word. I will, however, give an extra entry to those that would like to do so. So here's how you can get your name in the drawing...
If you commented on the first candy post here = 1 chance
If you are a follower = 1 chance
If you commented on this post = 1 chance
If you link my candy on your sidebar = 1 chance
Please do not feel obligated to do any of the above! You are all my friends, and I just want to do something nice for you! I wish I could give you ALL something!
Have a great weekend!

Wow! I can't believe that my little old blog, that started out as a way for our kids to keep up with a bathroom remodel, has evolved into what it has, and that it will be two years old TOMORROW! Wowzers!

Chris is our hostess today, and she offers this scripture:
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.
Here is my card. This set is from Our Daily Bread Designs, and is called Quiet Waters. You can find it here.

It's been 'meter read' week for DH, so I've had lots of time to craft!
Again, resources are pretty limited, but I'm learning to cut great rectangles and squares!!!
Catch The Bug Challenge: Sewing Related & Fall Colors (Faux Stitching)
Anything Goes Challenge: Autumn
Coloring on all projects was done with colored pencils and LOMS.
That's all, folks...
I'm hoping to be making a trip to Scrapbooks Forever today - keep your fingers crossed!!!
DH says he'll have time to drop me off and let me shop 1.5 or so!
Have a great Thursday!

I hope that you have all recovered from your long weekend, and have the kids back to school, hubbies back to work, and finally have some time in your paper caves! I'm actually at work with DH this week, so won't have a card to post until Friday. However....I do have a fun photo to share with you!
This photo is of our DD, while enjoying her day Labor Day! A group of folks, including DD, went on a float trip Monday. At some point during the day, a butterfly actually landed on her, and stayed on her for several minutes. A friend made a sudden movement, scared it away, and she thought it was gone. After a very short time, it came back and stayed on her hand again for several minutes. I'd love for you to read her "newly syndicated" (YAY!!!) blog entry, to get the story first hand, as she tells it much better than I do! Be sure to say hello while you are there!
Have a great Weds. and Thurs., and I'll see you again on Friday!

This first card is for Flutterby Wednesday. We were to use a fairy, butterfly, or angel on our cards, and....this week, a sketch was featured. And not just any sketch...a sketch by the fabulous Mercy! For my card, I used Kraft CS, DCWV Mat Stack, Glossy Accents, and TAC True Beauty stamps. I added a bit of color with my colored pencils and LOMS. The ribbon is from Michael's. I distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. Easy Breezy!
Supplies: Image by Anita's "Sugarloaf" Stamps, Ladybug by All Night Media, Palette Noir Ink, Ribbon from Michael's, The Paper Studio DP.
I have one more picture to show you. My friend, Shirley, has this amazing DH who can make just about anything you might want for your craft room! He's been making us these holders for our Stickles. This one is made from Cherry wood, as that's what he had on hand, but he can make them out pine, etc., as well.
As shown, he is selling these holders for $5 per tier plus s/h. If you have TONS of Stickles, and need it to hold more per row, he can do that, it may just cost a bit more!
If you are interested in one of these beauties, or have another item you would like quoted, email Shirley at: Shirleyhotop@hotmail.com
Have a great Tuesday!

Stamp Something: Something cute (who can resist a sparkly red nose?)
Sunday, September 5, 2010
This is my first week as a design team member with Stampin' Sisters in Christ. I'm very happy to be a part of this wonderful group of ladies. Each of them brings her own special talents, personality, and steadfast faith. I'm very much looking forward to spending some time with them!
The stamp set I chose, was chosen because of the rippling of the water under the boat... I once read a devotional about how we are like drops of water, and how one drop of water by itself is insignificant. It doesn't last long, it evaporates quickly in the sun or wind. By ourselves, we won't last long either - we're made for fellowship with other believers. A drop of water that's put into a larger body of water will cause ripples, and become more significant. As more drops are put into the body of water, the ripples begin to overlap each other. The way that we influence others along life's journey, can have that rippling, overlapping effect as well, by our words and actions.
Have a great week, dear friend, and don't forget to ripple!
Can't wait to see your creations!

Hugs and Blessings,
Stamps:The Angel Company, DP-DCWV, CS-Bazzill. All coloring is done with Prismacolor pencils and LOMS. An EK Success edge punch, and Kaiser Craft Pearls were also used.
