Yay, it’s May 1st! Time for some Blog Candy! 🙂
I’m changing my Blog Candy to May instead of April. My birthday is in May, two of my grandsons have birthdays in May, and my husband’s birthday is in May. What a great month!!:)
So here’s what I’m thinking…..throughout the entire month of May, you can make a comment on my blog, this will get you one chance to win.:)
You can send me a card for a “child” 1 year to 19 years, that will get you two chances to win:)
If you make a comment during May, and send at least one card, you will have three chances to win! 🙂
If you’ve been following me for the last couple of months, you know I am doing volunteer work for Send A Smile 4 Kids, you can find my address and info here. This is a wonderful group of people who make, collect, and donate handmade cards to children’s hospitals:) Any and all cards sent to me will be donated to The Children’s Hospital of Illinois:)
What kind of Blog Candy do I have, you might ask. I have 4 items that I will send out. You will be able to let me know what your wish list is by numbering the letters 1-4. One being what you would like the most, but this is not a guarantee. These items have not been donated, all these items are from my own personal stash of craft items and are unused! So here’s my list of Candy:)
A-From Stampin’ Up, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder. I love this folder! 🙂
B-From Stampin’ Up, Tagtastic, cling mount stamp set.
Samples were part of the catalog display, not included.
C-From Stampin’ Up, You Brighten My Day, cling mount stamp set.
D- From me, die cut outs.
I cut these out myself and took a photo, all are included. I have cats in black, top center and white so you can color yourself. Kittens, in white, below the cats, and black. I have puppies, in Stampin’ Up! Chocolate Chip and white. There are two guitars one in silver and one in black. Bottom left is a boy on a sled in black. I love all of these cut outs, so I thought someone else might like them too:)
So, now, I’m hoping you’re wondering what kind of card to send;) Here are the SAS4Kids suggestions. You could send birthday, thank you, thinking of you, sending prayers, thoughts & prayers, have a great day, encouragement, no sentiment with a cheerful image, Father’s Day is in June, so that would be fine as well. Please no Get Well, some of these children will not get well:( We would like to concentrate on cheerful cards:)
I will announce the winners by June 15th, so please follow me so you will be notified of the winners:) Also, if you send cards, make sure you include your email address and I will be able to notify you personally:)
Now, I have a card today:) I’m going to enter it in the Freshly Made Sketches # 184 challenge🙂
For this card I used Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, hmmm, I think the birds are Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo, but I don’t remember, sorry. I added the birds as a last thought and I made them more than a month ago. Both of the dies are from Impression Obsession. The kite is DIE153-I and the birds are DIE154-A. The bird die has 10 small birds and the kite comes with this big kite, the pieces to go inside the big kite, a small kite, two strings and 4 bows, really awesome! 🙂
I’m also going to enter again into The Challenge #32 over at Always Playing With Paper.
I really like this card:) Yes, it will be going into my box for Send A Smile 4 Kids;)
One more bit of news:) This card was chosen as a runner-up, (Glamette) for the Friday Mashup #206🙂 Yay! 🙂
Ok, I think that’s all for today:) Thanks for coming by today, I hope you’ll enter to win my Blog Candy! 🙂 See you again soon! 🙂
