Some RAK cards and Blog Candy!

Hi everyone, I don't have any cards to share -it seems my stamping MOJO has taken a vacation!


Well, I don't blame it. It may have something to do with the fact that this weekend (while up here for my son's 5th birthday) my mom took a large piece of furniture from my dining room/stamping area. It was a long buffet table that I had "taken over" with stamping stuff and it really wasn't working for my stamping needs. In actuality having my mom take it was just what I needed. Poor Bill came home from work on Monday to a bare wall and a declaration that I get to completely redesign the entire wall just for my stamping stuff! What a love, he is totally fine with it. So, in the meantime I am working out of boxes and clutter until I get it all figured out.


Here are a couple pics how things are now. Here is the blank wall that will soon house a 12' long x 3' deep table (from my great grandma!). I am thinking some kind of shelves on the wall to the side of the window...



But, I do have some happy mail to share with you! Nothing like HAPPY MAIL to put a smile on your face, huh? I just love my stamping friends and wanted to show you all some lovely cards that I received.


Here is a card from my fellow Dirty Girl, Jodi:

Here is a card from the newest Friends of Flourishes girl extraordinairre, Silke:

Here are 2 cards from my DoubleDog Dare challenge GF, Anne:

And last but not least, a Valentine's card from the Verve Girl herself, Julee:


And now on to the Blog Candy! This is special candy -remember back when, I received some lovely Blog Candy from America in this post? Well, one of the items she sent me was a Cricut cartridge called Wedding/Mariage. Well, I don't own a Cricut and asked America if I could "pay the candy forward" so it could be put to use. She loved the idea.


So here is some PIF candy for you. AND I added a couple things. Some were things I bought in duplicate (like the rhinestones) and some were given to me (the CM frames).

Here is what is up for grabs:
1. Cricut cartridge (Wedding Marriage)
2. Gold rhinestones by Kaiser Crafts
3. 2 Creative Memories frames (3" square)
4. 2 adhesive backed metal star embellishments by Pressed Petals
5. Prima Esprit Pink bottle

To enter to win, you need to have a Cricut (I want this lovely gift to be used!) and leave me a comment on this post. If you mention the blog candy on your blog, you can be entered twice! I will pick a random winner Tuesday the 24th, noon PST.

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

  16. Good luck with the design of your room. I redid my room a couple of months ago when I inherited some cabinets from a carpenter friend. What a difference the cabinets made; I resolved a lot of my clutter because I had a place for most of my things. I really love your cards and blog. Thanks for the chance to win "candy". I purchased a Cricut Expression just over a month ago; a new cartridge would be great. Thanks for sharing...Cheryl in Reno/Sparks, NV

  20. Well crap, I don't have a Cricut but love your blog and all your creations. I would love to win the rest of the blog prize - I would be willing to give it to someone else or let you give it to someone else in case you picked me! Boy, being "punished" for not having a Cricut! Anyway, it was worth a shot and putting my 2 cents in!!!! Honestly, some of your projects just amaze me. Thanks so much for sharing.
