Time for Dreamy Treats!


I guess I have been so distracted with everything going on that I hardly realized I passed 50,000 hits! Can you believe it?

When I first started blogging I remember seeing bloggers celebrating 50,000 and thinking to myself, it will take me *light years* to get there. Well, thanks to you all, it didn't!

So....I'm having a Dreamy Treats giveaway! It's my way of thanking all of you for continuing to come back each day.

Included is this new clear stamp set from Rubber Soul. It's called Target Love. And I have to tell you it was difficult for me not to keep this for myself! Isn't it just too adorable???

Also included is the Cuttlebug Playful Squares embossing set. You are only getting this because somehow I managed to buy two. I KNOW none of you ever do that! LOL! You can see the Black Diamond and Copper Stickles, because I think everyone should have those, and also pink Gemstones from Hero Arts, Pastel Glimmer Brads, as well as about 15 ft of assorted May Arts ribbons.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, or any post after this one before the deadline. No special rules about what your comment must be. It can even be a question. So surprise me, okay? I will announce the winner on Sunday, Feb 3. Since I don't have random.cara, I will use the random selector thingy. You may leave one comment on each post, so that gives you regulars extra chances to win. Fair enough?

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate you so much!

mimiburroughs said...

I forgot to tell you...we made the monkey valentine card you posted the other day...so cute...well, it looked a little different than yours :-)...we were wandering...what did you use to cut the tabs on the side? Did you just cut them out or did you use a special punch?

Thanks again for your great ideas!!

Blessings, jackie

Jennifer said...

Your blog is my first stop in the blog-o-sphere to check each day!

I do have a question. How do you get the embossed areas so clear and sharp with your Nestabilities? How do you "sandwich" your plates? Do you use a cuttlebug? Ooops! That was three questions.

Congrats on a very successful and wonderful blog!

congrats on 50,000 posts, love looking at all the beautiful cards each day. you are just so talented.

doverdi said...

Congrats on your 50,000!!! I love your cards. I especially like the jump for joy card and the color combo you chose. I also have a thing for frogs & turtles. lol I notice that you use Tombo markers and a blender pen to do your coloring – is there a reason why you prefer this method for coloring images? Thanks for the chance to win such great goodies.

Beth said...

Way to go on the 50,000 hit milestone! I really enjoy seeing all the cards you post. They're very inspiring!

Hi Michelle!
Wow! Really dreamy treats! I have a question for you. What is the best way to clean your clear acrylic stamps? Do you have a cleaner especially for them? They are beginning to really grow on me and I am using the clear stamps more and more.
Thanks, Brenda Milam
