The Fruit of my Labor!! {Blog Candy Time!!}

****Candy is CLOSED! Winner announced!***

Have you seen the oh, so yummy "Sweet" line by DCWV? It is so cute!! It makes you want some chocolate covered strawberries! Here are some simple cards I made with the 8x8 Sweet Stack of papers.

This first card was made with the cute apple paper from the stack as well as some Maya Road Chipboard apples and tree. I covered them with some cs, paint and glitter. I printed the sentiment out from MS Word onto some white cs and matted it onto some pink and green cs. I added some ribbon and a bow to finish it off.

This next one was also made with some of the yummy paper from the Stack. I hand drew a strawberry onto some red cs and then added some pale yellow glitter to it. I added some ribbon to the top of the strawberry. The quote is a Inkadinkado stamp. Isn't that a cute saying?!! I then added a bow to this one too, to finish it off.

Now onto the Blog Candy!! Here is what I have up for grabs!!

~ DCWV 8x8 Sweet Stack Paper Pad
~ DCWV Sweet Vellum Quotes Stack
~ DCWV Sweet Candy Glitter Rub-Ons
~ Creative Imaginations Mini Cupcake Chipboard Book
~ Doodlebug Loopy Lou Alpha Stickers
~ a bottle of Doodlebug Cupcake Crushed Velvet Flock
~ a jar of Hottie Pink Shimmerz
~ and last but not least, 2 2oz. bottles of Glimmer Mist, Black Cherry and Pink Taffy!

What do you have to do to win this?? Simple, just leave me a comment on this post and link up my blog candy on your blog telling everyone about my candy! And if you don't have a blog, just tell me how you will spread the word! If you would like 2 chances, you can become a friend of my blog!(up at the top!) :) My son will pick a winner out of a bowl next Thursday, February 19th at 2 pm, est! So Good Luck!!

A BIG Thank You to all my friends who regularly read and leave wonderful comments on my blog! I appreciate every one of them more than you know! Thank you!! ;)

Hugs,
