It's almost time.... (Celebration info)

Tomorrow starts the celebration, are you all as ready as me?!? Here's a fun card today using an awesome image from artist Rick St Dennis. She is called Batty Bettina. There's a new challenge starting tomorrow morning at Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge blog and it's called "Love is in the Air".  The challenge is to include something with wings on it, be it in your image or your embellishments.  I can't wait to see what you all make and share for that challenge.

Now on to the Blog Candy Celebration starting up tomorrow, are you ready? Here's a little info:


If you are outside the USA, I do have to limit what I can send, I can send flat items like stamps or die cuts. I can send you digi gift certificates to stores.  If you don't have a die cut machine or printer, please let me know.

Those in the USA I can send packages to, nowadays the post office charges the same for 2oz or 8oz, so that's good for you!  Most prize packs are things like a stamp set plus 6 pack of embellishments or multiple stamp sets. 

NOW, most days I seem to ask some general question-- about all those questions I ask everyday, I may seem to be babbling, but I am actually asking them for a reason, it's a little get to know you so I can see what people like (and don't like) as well as know what they have (or don't, for example, you don't stamp or you don't have a die cut machine);  I do pay attention to what people say and try to pick their prize packs  accordingly!  so, it's very much to your advantage to answer the questions.  I don't always have that one thing you may really want, but you never know.  You might just LOVE shoe stamps and I happen to have a whole bunch of them.

I expect that several people will win more than once and that many people who already won will win grand prize items, so I always wait until the end of Feb to mail things out. I think if you have played in past years you know that I am pretty speedy at getting out the number of packages that I have to.  I am usually done in 2 weeks and I mail out 50-100 packages.  Each day in March I will be listing the names of whose packages have gone into the mail that day.

Thanks so much for joining in my celebration with me. I am so very thankful to be here and so very thankful to still be seizure free and still have my health. Thanks to all the crafters out there, old and new who have been so very helpful both during my procedure and since.

Cheers, Holley

Your final paragraph brought tears to my eyes, Holley. Maybe I'm just having an emotional day, but it's so nice to see someone who is grateful and happy to be healthy and seizure-free. So many people take their health for granted until it's gone and I am another one who cherishes my health. I have good days and bad but I really appreciate the good ones. Wishing you continued good health! And I am super excited to be celebrating it with you!

Holley, thank you so much for mentioning your blog candy in the Outlawz DT forum. I just hopped over from there. I'm so touched by your appreciation of your good health. It's an easy blessing to take for granted. I love what you are doing here! I just became your newest follower and would love it if you returned the favor and followed my blog at http://carriescustomcards.blogspot.com
May the Lord bless Holley and keep her;
May the Lord make His face shine on Holley and be gracious to her;
May the Lord turn His face toward Holley and give her peace.

Love that image! The color combo is fantastic and the purple dots on the shrooms seems to make them wickedly poisonous. I am ready to celebrate, I have my party hat and have followed my arthritis care carefully so the fingers can type, lol.
