100 Posts - Woo hoo!! Blog Candy, PW Blog Challenge #5 and SBS4 CASE a Sister Challenge

100 posts - can you believe it? I've learned so much since the first post and still have a lot of things I'd like to try. But, I wouldn't be having as much fun if it weren't for all of you! Your comments and your visits to my blog are awesome and I really appreciate it!

To show my appreciation, I'd like to offer up some blog candy. How do you get it? Leave a comment by Monday, February 2nd at midnight CST and let me know what stamping technique you'd like to try in 2009. I can't wait to see the list!

The blog candy winner will receive these wonderful goodies and perhaps one or two more little treats. :)

I'm participating in a Paper Wings Blog Challenge #5 for Seeds of Blessings. This is a great stamp set with all kinds of wonderful friendship quotes. Makes great cards or great tags or great gift adornments. Here's my take on it. I used Icicle stickles which is a chunky clear glitter glue but it photographs with a blue tint so please pretend it photographed clear. *grin* I love the colors in the Catelynne paper which provides the base and some of the circles. Such pretty paper. Finally, the Running Stitches stamp set used around the edge gives that great "sewn" look without the hassle of pulling out the sewing machine. love it!

And, here are the other Angels (TAC demos) participating in the blog challenge:

Last, but absolutely not least, on the very last day for submissions, the Seeds of Blessing card is also my Case a Sister Challenge card. I belong to this wonderful blogging group called the Sisterhood of Blogging Stampers #4 (SBS4)- see the list in the sidebar. We all joined the sisterhood a little over a year ago and are still blurfing and commenting on each other's blogs and participating on a message board and in challenges and it's wonderful. We're all over the world (Canada, Scotland, Malaysia, Puerto Rico, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, US - did I miss any countries?) but we all share a love of stamping and creating and have become friends through the process. I love it! This is a great group of talented ladies and I've learned and been inspired so much by what they do! I encourage you to visit their blogs! The CASE challenge is to CASE a card created by one of our sisters. I CASEd the super fun layout for my Seeds of Blessings card from a very creative stamper who has the most amazing coloring and design skills but I can't tell you whose because that's part of the challenge. :) And, if you figure out the CASE and participate in the blog candy question, I'll throw in a bonus item if you win!

Thanks again for stopping by and commenting! Happy Stamping!
