Getting Ready for Summer (And Some Blog Candy)

Whew! Only a couple more days and it'll finally be Summer Vacation! I can hardly wait! The week has been exhausting and I know next week will be trying, but I'm determined to make it through! Then it's rest and relaxation to the max! :)

Today I'm updating my Etsy shop and trying to clean up my crafting space. As you may already know, Stampin' Up! is getting ready to retire some well loved stamps and bring out some new goodies, so I'm trying to get reorganized for the change! Change is exciting! :)


As I was cleaning, I decided to pull together some blog candy for a lucky winner - a sort of a thank you for being patient with me during this busy time of year! One winner will receive ten 4"x6" sheets of Designer Series Paper Patterns (two sheets of five In Color patterned papers) three Thank You cards and envelopes (original posts of these cards are found here, here, and here), three yards of 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon (in Pretty in Pink, Marina Mist, and Whisper White), Certainly Celery Classic Stampin' Spot, 12 clear Bitty Buttons (three each of four styles), 12 5/16" Neutral Brads (three each of 4 colors), and six On Board circle die cut pieces.

All you have to do is comment to this post sharing one thing that you're looking forward to seeing on my blog this summer - more cards? techniques and tutorials? brand new stamps? fun ribbon challenges? anything else? Your wish is my command! :)

One lucky winner will be randomly selected and announced on Saturday, June 25th. Comments must be posted by Saturday at Midnight (12:00am EST). Note: You must be a follower of my blog to be eligible to win.

But wait! There's more! For every 10 new followers I have, I'll add a new goody to the prize package! As of today, I have 72 followers, so there are 7 different goodies in the prize package. When I have 80+ followers, I'll add another goody... 90+ followers, something else... It'll keep growing as my fan base does! :)
