I noticed that my blog counter is nearing 20,000 hits, so I thought this would be a good time for some blog candy. And I haven't had any for awhile. The blog candy is an altered Target mailbox, a set of 4 monogram cards (with the monogram of your choice), a package of epoxy Valentine stickers, and a bag of foam heart stickers. For a chance to win the blog candy, just leave a comment on this post by Friday morning. I will use Random.org to choose the winner.
The contest part is not really a true contest, but I would love for you to answer this question in your comment (but you don't have to just to enter):
"What is the strangest place you have found something craft related in your house?"
The reason I ask is because I found the orange backing from a piece of sticky strip on my cat's back the other day. I have also found those little pieces at the foot of my bed (inside the covers) and in one of my bathroom cabinets. Now I hope you're not thinking I have a messy house. I really don't! But my craft room can get a little chaotic at times. I use little pieces of sticky strip to adhere ribbon, and I think that backing has the most static cling of anything I know. No matter how hard I try to get it in the trash, I still find pieces of it on the floor - which then sticks to the bottom of my feet and then gets carried throughout the house. So - I can't wait to hear your stories!
For the mailbox, I used 2 different patterns from the new Berry Bliss DSP and a strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock. The "I Heart" image on the front is from Sweet on You (I think it was in one of the mini catalogs from 2006? - I'm not exactly sure.) The "U" is from the new Jumbo Outline Alpha set. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip on the Berry Bliss paper and then cut it out before adhering it. Since the letters aren't very big, you have to be careful in cutting, but I think it really adds a lot to the letter. Always is from Fancy Flexible Phrases.
I used Berry Bliss for the monogram cards also, along with Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White cardstock. The letter is also from Jumbo Outline Alpha. After the winner is chosen, she can select whatever letter she'd like, I'll finish the cards and mail them out!
