Today's a wonderful day full of a lot going on. Here's a wonderful Squigglefly card using a great image called Dance Partners. I always did (and still do) love dancing. I guess my partner is still a teddy bear because my DH is not one for dancing. The Squigglefly Blog is starting a new contest today, my card is one of samples, go over there and participate.NOW...big news for today is that I am seeing Dr Aboumatar today. I am going to share all of your wonderful thank yous with him. I will be sure to share that with you tomorrow. I will also be picking the grand prize winner for the contest from the first half of the month and announcing the winner from the game that started Thursday...speaking of, this is you last chance to play that game!!

All that being let's start the second HUGE blog candy game. This game will go from today until Feb 27th, winners announced on Feb 28th. Grand Prize for this game is 2 sheets worth of beautiful stamps (8 full sized stamps) from Sweet Pea Stamps. Other great prizes will be handed out as before, with announcements all the time! All you have to do now is just leave a comment. No specifics this time, just love to hear your sweet words :) This blog candy is just for you and your wonderful support both now and last year.
