It's here! Blog candy!


Thank you to each of you who have commented or even visited my blog since I started it! I am having such a good time sharing my creations knowing that you are out there! As I posted a few days earlier, because I'm over 2,000 page views, I'm giving away blog candy! Now actually, there have been more views than that, but I only installed the hit counter about a month after starting up my blog.

For a chance at the 2,000 view blog candy you need to post a comment on this entry (only one per person, please), and let me know 2 things.

  1. Your favorite vegetable
  2. What you do for fun other than stamping (is that possible?)

I will announce a winner from all those who have posted to this entry on Thursday morning. You have through Wednesday night at 10 p.m. mountain standard time to comment. Thanks for looking, reading and commenting!

Blog candy consists of:

  • Gently Falling stamp set - Stampin' Up! (new and unmounted)
  • Thank You and Happy Birthday stamps - Stampendous
  • Scallop circle cut outs (mega size) in various colors
  • White circle cut outs sized to fit on the scallop pieces
  • Chipboard flowers (4)
  • Buttons - various makers (red, ivory, clear, and brown/neutrals)

Wow - that's VERY generous blog candy! My favourite veggie? That's difficult - easier would be least favourite. I'll have to say cauliflower. And what I do for fun besides stamping - another hard question! In the wintertime, I love ice skating and tobogganing with the kids and in the summer - the beach is my favourite place to sit, walk, ride my bike.....or smooch with my hubby!

Jackie said...

Wow! Nice selection of candy you have there.Favorite veggie? I think I would have to say snap peas, they're so yummy! Other fun? Well, I am an avid reader of everything so I would say reading is my other 'fun'.

Wife2TJ said...

Your favorite vegetable-Sweet Peas. Yummy!

What you do for fun other than stamping (is that possible?) Watch lifetime tv with my cat. lol! and go to church.

I love broccoli! I get it on my pizza and baked potatoe! Besides stampinf my favorite thing to do is make crafts to sell for money for charities. I believe God gave me this incredible gift to create so thats how I use it! Good luck with your blog. I love it! Stephanie

Natasha said...

Hmm, my favorite veggie? I really like anything freshly picked from the garden, I guess my most favorite would be freshly picked yellow beans, so good!

Activities besides stamping... there's too many, it's getting hard to fit them all in. My first passion is drawing

doverdi said...

What yummy blog candy! My favorite vegetable would have to broccoli. My favorite thing to do for fun besides stamping would definately have to be SHOP! LOL In the nice weather, I am a huge yard sale fan. I usually take my 81 yr old mother out with me as she also loves yard sales. Another few weeks and it will be yard sale season in S. Ontario. lol

loislane said...

My favorite veggie? Probably green beans. Home grown, of course. And when I'm not stamping I like to read.

Jackie said...

Wow - awesome candy!! My favorite vegetable is definitely sweet potatoes! I could eat them every day of the week. As for fun other than stamping, it would have to be reading, but I have to confess that I don't really do much of it anymore. Too many blogs to read!

Dawn Mercedes said...

Since I probably have no chance in winning...I just NEED that "happy birthday" stamp. Send the rest of another deserving stamper.

Favorite veggie: broccoli! Yum!

I have been playing Sudoku lately...a puzzle using numbers!

I am so glad that the sun is coming out because I love the outdoors! camping, hiking, and pro beach volleyball in CA with my dad :D

My favorite vegetable is asparagus baked in the oven in a little olive oil. I love it when the tops get really crispy! Other than stamping I also enjoy reading stamp blogs and surfing Splitcoaststampers. Oh yeah, and watching Professional bullriding on tv! Just nine more minutes till it's on! Whoohoo!

Terry Molineux said...

My favorite vegetable is Spinach, but it has to be cooked. In fact just this weekend we had Spiaach dip at an all day CROP at my Local Scrapbook store. What I do for fun is visit with my best friend Kathy who lives 20 mins from me and doesn't drive so we get together sometimes and just talk or we scrapbook, BUT I always have to get a little stamp in there somehow!!!!

Wackie said...

My favorite vegetable would have to be green beans, especially fresh ones out of the garden in the summer cooked, of course, with onions and bacon. Yum Yum. For fun other than stamping, I love to read, eat out, travel, and just hang out with my sister and girlfriends. You have great blog candy. Pick me, pick me please

shelley davis said...

Oh my favorite veggie is broccolli! Yummy! I like it raw, or cooked. I love it on baked potates.
I love to spend time with our new little adopted one year olds, Joel and Eliza. I think I may like that better than stamping. I can stamp when they are sleeping. :)

Janet B said...

My favorite veggie has to be turnip. Nothing better than that!

And as for fun besides crafting--it has to be reading. There are so many good books out there. I seem to devour at least one every few days.

Thanks, Janet B

Alex said...

Susan Liles (susiestampalot) said...

wow, that's a lot a candy!! i would just take the sponge!! i need some of those BADLY!!! since i have been on a diet for almost a year now, i have learned to love a lot of veggies!! but i guess my favorite is a toss up between broccoli and cauliflower. oh, but then that leaves out yellow summer squash! for fun besides stamping, how about shopping for stamps and craft supplies online and at my favorite stores with coupons in hand!

Selina said...

My favorite vegetable...hmmmm, how about baby carrots or corn. And fun other than stamping? Well, probably playing/reading with my kiddos and also hanging out with friends. What wonderful candy you are offering up!

Jan Scholl said...

Being a vegetarian, I guess I like most veggies, but I love Brussell sprouts, which no one else likes one bit, so more for me! I am allergic to mushrooms tho. and so many places substitute mushrooms for meat-I dont get it. And they charge more. and then dump slimy cheese on stuff-bleck!

one of my many loves other than stamping is running. I am hoping to do a marathon this fall in either NYC or Chicago. I can't do the Detroit one because you have to run under the river thru a tunnel-scares me to death thinking about it!

stampin_melissa said...

Wow, this is a very generous blog candy! Favorite veggie. . . . . probably corn (on the cob or plain, just NOT creamed!) I love to read, whether it is crafting blogs or spy/murder mysteries! :D

crazy4mycrafts said...

Hmmm, my favorite vegetable would definitely have to be potatoes. Ummm, there's not too much that I do outside of college and crafting.. Quilting and interneting rank up there. Otherwise, traveling is fun--just don't get to do it as much as I like! Cool blog candy! TFS

Y said...

Wow! That is NICE blog candy! Thank you so much!

All right lets see...favourite veggie would have to be Asparagus. I always think it's such a hassle to prepare veggies but once I do, it is so yummy!!!

Besides stamping, I like crochet, and I am hockey finatic..no no not to play but to watch!

Linda Yamakido said...

Kevin & Amy said...

I love carrots. This is a new found liking but they are super! My favorite thing to do other than stamping is to read - when I have the time that is.

Donna Coffeen said...

My favorite vegetable is corn.

I like to read!

Cathy said...

I guess I could say my favorite is green beans. As a kid I hated them, I really dont know why other than I have been told your taste buds change over the years but for some odd reason now I love them.

My other past time would be roller skating. I am a 50 year old grandma that loves it. I know I am getting a little old for it but oh well.

Lesa said...

mjb coffee said...

Wow! Nice blog candy! My favorite vegetable is Inidana Sweet Corn on the Cob. YUM!! YUM! My other favorite thing is to read. I get hungry to read. The reading habit began when I was in first grade and my mother let me walk to the library and pick out my own books. It was a small Indiana town in 1941 and it was safe to do that.

Stefanie said...

Wow! Awesome candy there! I never win anything but here goes:

Favorite veggie - asparagus
As far as what I do for fun other than stamping.....Scrapping!:) I love to go on dates with my hubby too.

Sandra L-M said...

1) Favorite vegetable is something that we call fukua or bitter melon. My father makes the best stuffed fukua.

2) I like reading and when my little one reads to me. She always puts me to sleep. It's the best!
