May Blog Candy!

Yay, it’s May 1st!  Time for some Blog Candy! 🙂

Happy Birthday to me 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.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI 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🙂

FMS Final 184-001abSDC15713For 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.

New Banner-005I 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! 🙂
