End of the Year Blog Candy!

*******UPDATE!! I have added some more goodies to the blog candy!! I told ya' I would!! LOL I am also including some Jenni Bowlin Valentine themed Bingo cards, some Melissa Frances Resin Keyholes and Resin Wings(they are too cute!) and a few more bottles of Stickles!! Good Luck! I may even add some more things! Stay tuned!! hehe I love doing this!!***********

Here is a card I made for New Year's! Where did the year go?! Whew! Anyway, this was made with some yummy October Afternoon paper, which I covered a mini Creative Imaginations chipboard glass with, lots of glitter, a Michael's $1 "Happy New Year" stamp, ribbon, hemp cord, a button and a real glass charm! Hope you like it, cause' you can win this already made card, the stuff to make your own and LOTS more!

I love giving things away!! It is so fun!! So I decided to have 1 last giveaway before the year was up! This is what you will get:

~ 1 Creative Imaginations Mini Ring Book, 4 pages (champagne glass)
~ 1 October Afternoon Good Cheer 8x8 Paper Pack
~ 1 bottle of Gold Glitter
~ 1 Wine glass Charm
~ Lots of Ribbon and Hemp Cord
~ A bag of Buttons
~ The Happy New Year stamp (don't worry, I have 2, yours is unused! ;)
And..... Just in time for Valentine's Day!
~ 1 Inkadinkado Clear Stamp Set, HEARTS
~ some Cosmo Cricket, Chemistry 12x12 papers
~ Stickles, 2 bottles, red and pink
~ Prima flowers
~ Heart brads
~ and a Creative Imaginations Chipboard Heart Album
And I probably will throw in some more goodies before this is all over!! hehe

So what do you have to do to win this?? Just leave me a comment here on this post and leave a link on your blog telling everyone about my candy! And if you don't have a blog, just let me know! For an extra chance, you can "Follow Me" and be my new friend! My son will pick a winner out of a bowl on New Year's Eve at 6 pm EST! Good luck!

I will also have a couple of projects that day for the Jacksonbelle Embellishments New Year's Eve Party! Woo-Hoo! My first projects for their DT! All the New Year's Eve challenges will be posted on the Jacksonbelle blog!! And there is going to be prizes too!

Also, please visit The Rubber Cafe for some really awesome specials right now! And new products are being added daily! Melissa will even have Copic Markers for sale soon! YAY! And don't forget all the awesome stamps that are at the Rubber Cafe! So go and check it out HERE!

Hi Melissa:
Well I was just looking over the comments made by all these People you must be convinced to open a place of your own , you do great work and have such wonderful ideas , you have been told this over and over for months now. I can't understand why your not going by popular demand and getting a small store for your creations and talents . it seems like this husband of your does things for you to make you happy and this would be the perfect gift for you for the new year you need to convince him to let you give this a shot and then people could also order things on line from you .This is a big world and people seem to like this stuff and with as a teacher like you they could discover that they may have some talent too. your little boy would beable to be with you and it would bring extra money in the house and everyone can use extra money!! I don't care who they are , unless they are millionairs.and don't care !~
I don't want to win this card you made but I just felt you should do what your followers are asking for .. give it lots of thought.
God Bless and Happy New Year 2009

Wow! This bundle would be great to win. The card you made is really clever. I just started blogs on 2Peas and My Craftivity but I don't know anything about links--one of my new year's resolutions is learning how to do that. Somebody needs to do a tutorial on techie stuff like that. Have a great New Year. Can't wait to see those projects you talked about.

Awsome blog candy, please enter my name, and I have also signed up to "Follow you to the Ends of the Earth". lol I do not have a blog, but I will tell friends and family about your site. By the way, one of my New Year's Resolutions is to not buy impulsively when it comes to scrapbook/card-making. Actually, I need to quit buying for at least two months. BUT...LET'S SEE...it is not 2009 YET, and if I am lucky enough to win your candy, I still won't have to explain a thing to DH. :D Happy New Year. Linda at lsfouratwindstream.net
