A Celebration and a little blog candy!

Hi Everyone!!
  Well today is a special day for me!  I reached 50 followers here on my blog!!!  YAY!  I'm really excited about this.  Another thing to share - I made the Paper Cutz Challenge design team and couldn't be happier.  Most of you know that I also am on the Crafty Creations Design Team and am just loving it!  I also won some great blog candy from the Cricut Couple recently and from Krista at BellaandAideesmom!  So, because I believe in paying it forward and because I so appreciate everyone who comes to my little piece of the Internet I'm going to give away some candy too!!!
YOU HAVE TO:  1) follow my blog
                             2) Tell me your favorite Tiddly Inks Digi
                             3) Favorite Stampin' Up product
                             4) Leave a comment under this post!
 Now, are you ready for it - want to know what it is?????  Here's part of it:
Yup, some cute little ribbon!!  Want to know what else???
Every project needs a little bling - this kind is a sticker too - so you can cut shapes with it!!!  Ok, is that all you might be asking yourself - nope there's more:

Yup YUMMY paper from Stampin' UP - I got this great paper from an awesome rep for Stampin' UP - Stephanie - make sure you check out her blog and shop for some great product!  Also, she's just started a challenge blog you'll want to check out - and if you want someone that answers your questions quickly and is excited about the Stampin' Up line make sure you contact her.  Now, is that it??? NOPE

YUP - some Copics!!!  Now, I'm having a bit of a hard time parting with this - but I'm going to do it for my awesome followers!!!  Now, it's not a lot  - but if you have never used them it's a start and you can do some experimenting.  Now, for those that already have Copics you can add to your collection!  Now so far we have, paper, ribbon, bling, and markers - something seems to be missing...
So last - but certainly not LEAST - I'm going to give out a gift certificate to one of my favorite stamp artists shops!!! Christy Croll - know her?  If not, you should defiantly check out Tiddly Inks!   Although, here's a warning and disclaimer:  You WILL become addicted to her stamps and I CANNOT and will not be held responsible :) 
They are by far the cutest little digi's around.  Christy is great at customer service and is just a really nice person.  Make sure to check out her challenge blog and her store!!!
Now, this isn't a challenge - but for fun and because I truly do believe in the two people I've mentioned that have amazing products - all you have to do to be qualified to win this blog candy is:
1) become a follower of my blog if you aren't already!
2) Check out Tiddly Inks and tell me your favorite digital stamp!
3) Mention your favorite product from Stephanie's Shop!
4) place your favorites in a comment under this post...
That's not too hard - and let's be honest, as crafters we all love to browse the goods!!!!  I will randomly pick a winner who's done all the things mentioned above a week from today!!! TGIF

  15. Oh my I love the Inky Christmas designs---They are all so darn cute I really can't pick just one. I love my stampin up "Done by Nancy" stamp with the butterfly on it. I have never had a personal stamp before, and I love it----Nancy

  16. Since I've been seeing you getting awards on your cards everywhere I just had to pop over and check you out! Yep, you're worthy!! Then I saw your blog candy so thought I'd enter for that while I'm here.

    I just love the fairies over at Tiddly Winks. For Stampin Up, it would have to be the punches. They make life so much easier. Also, I might have to check out the personal stamps considering I desperately need one of those too.

    So excited to get to know you more!
    Hugs - Jen
