Blog Candy!

Happy Sunday! 
Goodness, I hope that you are not snowed in - that snowstorm is incredible, 
and I must admit that I'm very glad it's not here.

I have not had any blog candy posts in a very long time, so let's do it!
I've been lucky enough to have been a Guest Designer at Great Impressions Stamps for Jan. and Feb.,
and here, I'm sharing a card that is created with G.I. stamps.  I love this sweet basket,
and it called right out to my pastel copics!  The best thing about it, is how it needs nothing else - just stamp, mat, and assemble card!

Great Impressions Stamps:  Easter Basket F518, Cursive Happy Easter C430




SO....on to the candy!

What IS the candy, you ask?
Your choice of THREE stamps from the Great Impressions Stamps Store!

What do you have to do to win?
Just leave a comment here, on this blog post, then head over to Facebook to the Great Impressions Stamps Facebook Page.  "Like" them, and leave a comment saying "Patti J. sent me".
That's it!
Easy Peasy!
You could soon be inking up some brand new, yummyliscious stamps!

On a side note, I have some new followers - welcome!
I've tried to visit some of you, too, but blogger won't let me click through from your photo to find your blog links.  I think there is a permission box someplace that has to be checked for your profile info to be visible to me.  Anyway, if I have not been to visit, please know that I have tried!!!

Have a great week!

I'll draw for this prize on Wednesday morning, Feb. 13th, and
will post the winner on my blog.

Good luck!!!

Patti J.

A breath of Spring to see those pastel colours. It always amazes me to see just how many Copics are used to colour one image. Sweet card, Patti.
