Blog Candy Update

I just want to say thanks to everyone who has posted a link to my site letting others know about my 1 Year Blogaversary and the sweet blog candy I am giving away. Also, I took a few pictures of individual items in the blog candy to boost your appetite to win. Remember, you only have to post a comment on that original post in order for your name to go into the drawing. Also, if you post a link letting others know, and you mention it in your post I will throw your name in twice.

This sweet card set has only been opened so that I can give you a good photo of all the card bases and envelopes that come in the fantastic box!

These robot stickers are da bomb! The little robot lights can barely see it here, but you will love it!

And here are the cards you will be getting with your blog candy reward if your name is chosen:

Also, just for fun I made this little canvas for my scrap room. It has such a summer feeling and it incorporates some of my favorite patterned papers and favorite summer trends including: triangle banners, pinwheels, and clouds. If you have never made a pinwheel before, you should totally try it. It would be fun to make with your kids if you are home with them this summer.

You could use the cutting guide win any pretty paper and then use a straight pin and a pencil with a new eraser as the stick to hold the pinwheel up and it should spin when they blow on it. I glued these to the canvas and used rolled up strips of paper as the stick, but they would be really cute on a card or summer scrapbook page! I try to change up the normal tendency to always use a flower for everything.

I guess I will get back to work...I signed up for a Christmas in July card swap and I am trying to come up with a good design...but I am failing miserably!! UGH!

Anyway, I hope this inspires you today! Have a great day!!

yum candy! I found you via Susanna & have you marked now! Love the flags & dd will love the pinwheels - we've been making cakes n snakes all week (baking & gluing are the bees knees when you are nearly 3), so pinwheels will be a welcome distraction. thanks
