Blog Candy Time!

I finally made it to 50,000 hits the other day, so it's time for some Blog Candy! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving your kind comments! It's been wonderful getting to know so many of you out there!

For this candy, I decided to offer up the 38 cards I made at the Splitcoast Arlington Shoebox Swap. Yes, these 38 cards represent 12 hours spent stamping one Saturday in May! As you can see, these are REALLY GOOD cards! I hope if you win them, you can put them to good use!

Just leave a comment telling us which color set below most appeals to you! I think everyone knows by now I am a Bashful Blue girl! I describe them below as Blues, Pinks, Soft Skys, Oranges, Greens, Brights, and Masculine. I will announce the winner at 12:00 am on July 1!









Thanks for stopping by! Have you stamped something today?

EDITED TO ADD: I did not design these cards! I can't take credit for that! At a shoebox swap, each person designs a card and cuts & prepares all of the supplies for it, then puts it all in a box of some sort with their sample card. When you get there, you put your box out, then you move around from station to station and just quickly stamp the card at each station by copying from the sample. Does that make sense?! Sorry if that was confusing or misleading!

Drawing closed to announce winner! Thanks for visiting!

Congratulations on your blog hits! Here's to hoping my luck is still in motion: I love brights! The blues are good, and I like the oranges, and the greens...can't pick just one!

Stampin' Cindy said...

The Soft Sky group is my fave outta the bunch. I've always been partial to aqua and tealy blues. Something about it is so pretty... yet when paired correctly, like with chocolate, can work for a masculine look. Thankfully, as it's everywhere in our home!

planotinam said...

i like them all! ~ Favoring the one you're calling Soft Sky but it maybe because there's so much Chocolate Chip. Don't pick me but just know that I think it's cool you offered.
Have a great evening!

Enjoli Bennett said...

Congratulations on your 50,000 hits! Wow! Thats a lot! I ♥ the pinks! It's so girly... The pink butterfly from the Kind Thoughts caught my eyes...Very beautiful!

Lori said...

The blues are my fave. Something about them just stood out to me.

Congrats and thanks for the great offer!

Kristine said...

WooHoo! I would love lots of cards to use when I need them! Congratulations on so many hits...your ideas are always lots of fun.
My favorite color group from what you listed is the Soft Sky set. I will miss our In Colors from this year. (I'll have to work with the new ones before I can tell you what I think about them).

Rachel said...

Your cards are fantastic! I'm a blues girl myself mixing in a little brown and orange lately!

Beverly said...

Angie, Congratulations on your 50K mark! That is awesome - pat yourself on the back.
My favorite of the group above are the pinks - there's just something about that pink butterfly that really catches my eye!

Tami said...

Congrats and thanks for a chance to win such nice cards!!!! Wow, you were busy! I am definately a Brights girl! The brighter and cheerier the better! Love every color in Bold Brights! and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the tug boat and rocket ship cards!!! Nice job!

Angie, congrats on such a successful blog! I think I like the soft sky's and the brights! That soft sky has really grown on me!
I can't believe that you are giving away your Shoe Box Swaps!!!

Linda McClain said...

Congratulations on all your hits. What great blog candy. They're all great, but I guess I'm digging the pink the most. That butterfly is stunning.

Heather A said...

Wow, lots of work in all those samples! Color-wise, I am partial to the soft sky group that includes yummy chocolate!
But I also like the orange group because of the great card with Best Kind of Friend - a stamp set that did not get used much by many demos. At least it is on the new dormant list.
Congratulations on your blog hits.

I would have to say that my favourite would be the blues - think I am partial to blue as it has always been a favourite and I especially like some of them when teamed with brown. But in looking at the samples you show they are all wonderful. What a great prize to give away and congrats on the number of hits on your blog. Keep sharing your talent with us. Karen

Christina Gerloff said...

Congrats on 50,000 hits that is amazing! I love the cards you make they are great:)

Shawntel said...

I have to say that the Oranges appeal to me, maybe because it is summer time! I like the warmth and happiness of it! Congratulations for hitting 50,000 that is GREAT!

Lauren Y. said...

Wow! 38 cards? You are SO generous! I like them all, they are all too pretty!!! However, I like the "orange" group the best, because I just LOVE Groovy & River Rock, I will be so sad when they retired....

Chrystal said...

I vote for the soft sky's also. Congrats on your blog hits!

Dawn said...

Cool! Congrats. Great cards and fun blog! I really like the bashful blue with brown but if I had to pick a set - I'd go with the 5th pic. TFS!

I am an orange girl...maybe it's from all of the University of Tennessee orange that I'm surrounded by...it has shaded my judgement!

They are all great cards. It is very hard to choose. My personal favorites are pink/brown or blue/brown.
