Dreamy Treats Alert!


I just realized that it's been quite some time since I've offered Dreamy Treats, so here you are...lots of stampin' treats free for the offering! It's my way of saying thanks to you for your support.

The clear stamp set on the left is one I bought today, then realized when I got home that I already had that one! I know none of you EVER do that! LOL! The four Christmas stamps are from Vap Scrap. They are not the ones carried in the chain stores. The gift stamp is from Printworks, and works so very well for Christmas as well as birthdays. The to/from stamp is a MUST HAVE for gift giving so you can make those adorable little gift tags. I am also including a small container of JudiKins Malachite embossing powder. It's a gorgeous green and copper color. There is a mini punch, some Spare Parts rings for all the May Arts ribbon I am including. Whew....that's a lot of stuff!

All you have to do is post here and on any other post between now and the time I hit 30,000. You may post once a day if you like. The question I would like answered on this post is what you look for on a blog. Is it daily artwork? Is it complicated cards? simple and easy cards? color combos? layouts? There is no wrong answer. I would just like to know what keeps you coming back to your favorite blogs.

I will use the random number selector thingy to select the winner the day after I hit 30,000.

Good luck to you all! And thanks so much for visiting my blog.

Hi Michelle...the candy looks great! I think that I like daily blog updates that are particular to that stamper's style (i.e., I don't need a stamper to do headstands...just do lots of what they like!). Cheers!

Donna said...

Your blog candy is just too wonderful! It is like you handpicked it for me--cmon, you know you did, LOL!

I look for photos with ideas that are usable and real. I do not want a card that takes 4 hours and 2 dozen products to make.

I like daily (or often cards), simple descriptions or recipes, I get turned off by the blogs that have very complicated recipes that detail the use of 20 markers and their color names - I think most of us don't need quite that much info! (I'm sure I've offended some bloggers).
I love tutorials and new techniques.

I love your cards... they keep me coming back!

Lindy Stamper said...

Oooh dream treats!!! I can't wait!

Melissa said...

I look for attractive layouts both on the project layouts and on the blog. The more pulled together everything looks, the more I come back!

Jan Scholl said...

I like seeing that the blogger likes what they are doing. With no apologies. DOesnt matter if its stamping, paper crafting of any sort, even recipes with photos. Enjoy yourself and others will too!

Wife2TJ said...

My favorite thing is tutorials. I love them!!! I do love looking at peoples cards and creations as well. I don't make nearly as many as I would like to.

CAKVD said...

Awesome candy! I love to see tutorials on how I can make a papercraft, use a tool in a new way, or how to make a neat folded card. I also like seeing your creations as they give me inspiration. Thanks!

Hi. I like to be able to look at a project and think of a way that I can use it with things i may already have--but if i HAVE to buy a new stamp or something.....well, oh well.
thanks

Forget sugar plums dancing in my head. Michelle's dreamy treats are dancing in my head instead when I go to bed.
I like seeing the card and learning techniques from your instruction and color choices you make.

Wanda. said...

I like seeing your card samples. They are always so fabulous!
Congrats on the hits!

Suzy said...

I love daily updates with pictues - it doesn't even have to be cards. Something you did or saw or felt. A human touch.

doverdi said...

I like a blogger who is consistant with posts. It doesn't even have to be cards, projects, etc as long as they are regular in postings I remember to check in on them. I also like 3D projects, organizational ideas, tutorials, cards, layouts, etc. Basically, I'm easy to please & like it all. lol Thanks for the chance to win.

jane j said...

I like seeing the cards made up... I look for things that are new to me that I might want to do... A new layout, tool etc etc... I'm pretty new at this so I see lots I like. Tutorials are great fun....
Candy looks fun!!!

Nettystamps said...

What do I look for in a blog? Well I can't say that it is one thing in particular...if I am in a creative mood but don't know what I want to create I look for something new to try...if I have something (a card) I need to do but am running dry in the creative juices department I am looking for something inspirational... and sometimes (very few and far between) I just like to surf and look for the sake of looking, kinda peeking in to see what's new.

Thanks for the opportunity to play and hopefully win that awesome candy.... :)

Cheryl said...

Wow, what terrific dreamy treats!!! I love to read blogs that offer cards with tutorials or projects with tutorials. I am such a visual person that I really rely upon directions. I am a CASER (not exact but almost) and love something I can copy. Thank you for the chance to win this.

Thanks for sharing such yummy goodies:) I love your style of card making. Some are over the top, while some are simple elegance. You always give the "recipe" for us to create the same card on our own. What first brought me here was your incredible water colored cards! I've been here every day since:)

tyrymom29 said...

The bloggers work are what keep me coming back !!! Love your cards and style !!!

Tanja said...

I look for beautiful work and kindness. Frequent posts are a plus, although with busy schedules, I'm amazed at how you guys do it. Thanks for sharing!

Kristine said...

Great blog candy! I just like to look for new ideas and inspiration.

Nancy said...

What I look for in a blog first and foremost is someone who takes the time to post on a regular basis. I like to see new projects on a blog a few times a week. As far as what those projects are, I'm easy. Sure, there are creations that aren't my style, but not everyone can always make me happy LOL!

I just enjoy seeing cards/projects from anothers' point of view... gives me ideas and inspiration!

toners said...

Ooooh! Awesome blog candy :) I'd have to say that I love seeing new cards, perhaps a technique occasionally. I also like people with a really fun writing style :)

Elaine said...

I look for creative or clever ideas, inspiration, resources or testimonials and a little humor never hurt either - oh and I love to see babies and kids - they are always soooo cute!! Dang I wish my kids were little again!!

Sharon in NE said...

I visit your blog each day because I love your talent. I appreciate simple and easy and also loved to be wowed by your complicated cards. I don't want you to knock yourself out, just do what you enjoy doing.

Debby Watkins said...

What do I look for in a blog - I like to see people's different styles of stamping. I love getting ideas and inspiration. I also think that I love the look of simple cards. Keep up the great work!

Robyn said...

What I look for in a blog is cards and preferably someone who uploads a card each day - I am so into blog surfing daily. I need my hit of creative flow each day to make me happy.
Thanks for the chance.

Well Said Cards said...

Great candy! I enjoy blogs with lots of crafting photos. I don't need them to be amazing, just reflect their personal style.

sandie c said...

I tend to check out the cards and techniques on the many, many blogs I subscribe to (and the list is forever growing with all the wonderful stampers out there that are so willing to share their talent). I try to read some of the other content but due to working 50 plus hour weeks of late, time is rather limited these days. I save any ideas that inspire me - not that any cards I end up making look exactly the same as the one i was inspired with.

Thanks heaps for all the generous sharing of your talent - it is greatly appreciated.

Mandiannie said...

Almost missed this chance. i'm hit # 029105! Congrats on so many hits and thanks for a chance to win some goodies.

Linda SS said...

That's quite a pile of fun blog candies! I love to view cards of all kinds. Cards & learning more about the blogger & her family are the things I enjoy most about blogging:) I have met so many wonderful people who share my interest of paper crafts thru blogs.

Krisstee said...

I come back to a blog for many reasons. I do it every morning with a coffee by my side. To look at daily posts if un but not the reason for coming back. I am always looking for new ideas. I do not bookmark every blog that I see. Quality is important to me.

Yosha said...

Congrats on all the hits! I come back for cards. I usually like the simple elegant look, but there is such a fine line towards plain!!!

dd2njoy said...

Trick or Treat...what great candy!
I look for daily updates with any kind of cards...i also like stories but nothing that'll take all day to read. Thanks for the chance!!

janet allen said...

My favorite things about the blogs I visit are the Cards, Scrapbook pages, and all the fun ideas that everyone is so wonderful to share with each other.

Hi Michelle,

I've just found your blog and I love it - I love your style of cardmaking, your colours and your friendly manner. I look for all those things in blogs that I bookmark - and the other thing that I love is to see a tutorial for something just that little bit different - in the paper crafting line - you know how it is - sometimes you just want to make something with a bit more pizzazz than usual!
Thanks for sharing.

Anne :)
