Blog Candy Winner, Blog Award, and more importantly...THANK YOUS

Good Morning Everyone!

It's Wednesday; "hump" day and a day closer to the weekend.  Who's ready to get their craft on?!  ;)

First off, I would like to say WELCOME to my new friends/followers here on my blog.  I hope you enjoyed the MS Blog Hop and I wanted to thank you for joining my blog.  I appreciate all the wonderful comments!  :)  I'd also like to extend a thank you to Linda (Fancy Framework), for inviting me to participate in this Hop and for a good cause.  Speaking of good cause, Linda was able to raise $125 for the National MS Society during the MS Blog Hop!  :)  Congrats GIRL!  :)

UPDATE:  The first winner of the blog candy has graciously declined the award because she was one of the designers for the blog hop; and I didn't realize it either.  So...I did the drawing again...and...

Now...the winner for the MS Blog Hop Candy...1 brand new pack of Personal Cricut Cutting Mats

Using, and out of 25 thoughtful comments...

Percilla G. Said: "A perfect card for someone struggling with a situation be that medical or along some other lines "

Congrats Percilla on winning the Blog Candy! Please email me your addy so that I can mail out your blog candy! You have till Sunday, March 13th to email me. If I should not hear from you, I will randomly select a new winner.   

Lastly, one of my new friends Patricia (Creative Diva) has nominated me for a blog award; A Thing of Beauty Award: Your Blog Has Style

The rules for this award are: when accepting this award; you must list 5 things about yourself (including why you like crafting), pass it on to 5 others, and when you post the award; the award designer would like the award linked back to her.

5 Factoids About Me:
1.  I consider scrap booking/card making a form of art, and this is my way of showing my creative side.
2.  I went to my first Scrapbook Expo and bought a Gypsy; it is my new favorite crafting toy.
3.  Even though the show is no longer airing, I enjoy watching seasons 1-6 of "Sex and the City."
4.  I am becoming a shoe addict.  ;)
5.  I enjoy driving in my car with stereo up and singing along to my favorite tunes and "air" drumming on my steering wheel.

5 Ladies Who I Nominate For This Award:

That is it for now.  Tessa and I hope everyone is doing well and having a wonderful day.  :)

Checking In :D

Good Morning!

How are my creative friends?  :)

I wanted to share that I went to my first Scrapbook Expo this past weekend at the Anaheim Convention Center.  Spent close to 8 hrs there and saw a lot of cool things that every paper crafter would love to have in their supplies.  I left there with a few goodies...the big one...the Gypsy!  I've spent the last two days getting acquainted with my Gypsy and now understand why other's rave about it.  ;) 

My first big project I'm using the Gypsy for is for a blog hop my friend (Linda at Fancy Framework)is hosting; and for a good cause. 

  Help Fight MS

As you may or may not know...Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic but disabling disease, which affects different people in different ways.  People are dedicated to helping find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis--which the National Multiple Sclerosis Society has actually made BIG steps towards in 2010.  If you would like to find out more about MS, please visit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The blog hop will start THIS Friday, March 4th - Sunday, March 6th.  There are lots of creative ladies participating in this hop; and what's a hop w/out blog candy.  ;)  Come join us THIS Friday starting at blog...Fancy Framework

Lastly...I would like to extend a big thank you and appreciation to Deborah for giving me a BLOG AWARD.


Alright...back to my day job.  Thanks for visiting and I'll be back later.  :)
