It's Blog Candy month
In Feb 2010, Doctors did two surgeries eventually removing a large portion of my left temporal lobe. The results have been remarkable. It took a couple of months to heal, but since then, I have made a amazing recovery. I have been truly blessed with NO seizures since. Not only no seizures, but also no headaches, no eye pain, no day to day sleepiness, so many problems that I had before all went away. I can go outside everyday now, work out (I dropped 70 pounds!) and I am back in wonderful health. In mid Feb, I will hit my 1 year seizure free period. For that, I want to give back to you all!!
Contests will start with the first posting in Feb and will continue through-out the month. As postings are made, many will clearly state if there are prizes involved, others may also have prizes and some will just have surprises!! I have wonderful prizes from Sweet Pea Stamps, The Paper Temptress and Squigglefly PLUS a ton of wonderful brand new goodies from all sorts of companies like Basic Grey, Magnolia, Making Memories, Jollees, Little Yellow Bicycle, Hampton Art Stamps and more!! I will send prizes all over the world!! I will keep a tally of prizes (you are eligible to win more than one) and will mail everything out at the end of the Blog Candy month.
ARE YOU READY?
Stay tuned then....the first candy posting will come soon. Be sure to read each candy posting game and follow the rules for each game.

I chose a wonderful saying from Plate #24 that says, "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller" I added two adorable brown hearts, metallic burnt gold border-punched paper, and a few buttons to coordinate with the color of the seahorses; these buttons make the seahorses in the image pop out of the design.
Be sure to scroll down a few entries and read about the HUGE blog candy celebration that will start on Feb 1st!
Hope you have a heartfelt day!

Pretty in Pink
To complete the Valentine, I added a wonderful verse from the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8; the saying comes from plate #17. The luscious flowers come from Queen and Co. The cardstock I used is from Bazzill and the cute borders are from Doodlebug.
Hope you have fun making Valentines for your loved ones!
