Wishing You Joy, and Blog Candy!

Hello...


It's almost Friday!


I have a very simple card today that I made for an upcoming wedding. It's my understanding that the color brown is involved, so I went with brown and white.
(It really is brown, although it looks black in the photo).


For this card, I used some clear stamps that I found ages and eons ago
at Michael's in their dollar bin.


I never remember to use these stamps until our good friend Curt uses them.
Then I always say to self: "duh, self, now why don't I ever think to use those fun stamps"...
So, Curt, if you are reading, thanks for the weekly inspiration!


Now for the CANDY!!!
I have my third blogaversary coming up in 16 days.
Three years, amazing!
Some lucky person will recieve a $25 gift card to the on-line store of their choice!


To enter, all you need to do is be a blog follower,
and leave a comment on today's blog post.

Good luck to you all!
I will draw a winner on my Blogaversary, Saturday, September 24th!


Thanks for stopping by.
Have a good day,
Patti J.


Food for thought:
Middle age is when the mirror steams up after a shower, and you don't mind!

Your dollar stamp looks amazing on this card! Only you can take a $1 stamp and make it look like a million bucks! Advance congrats too on your 3 year anniversary. Mine was in April, so we are very close to when we started this craziness. I also had to laugh out loud regarding your little middle-aged saying at the bottom of your post. I actually hope the mirror fogs up! LOL Thanks for the shout out. You are an inspiration to me as well, and have always been such a loyal blogging buddy. Hugs! Best, Curt
