Things I am Thankful for......

It is usually around the holidays that we are asked to list the things we are thankful for. I'm not sure why, but I feel it is something we should do all year long. Starting now, I am going to list once a month, all the things I am thankful for.

Here is my list for this month.
1. Days to goof off and play with my stamps
2. My collection of stamps, paper, or whatever I can get my hands on.
3. My friends on SCS to share ideas and inspiration.

Until next time, be thankful.

I have Jumping Tigger, Bouncing Tigger, Tumbling Tigger and a very good friend of mine got me a Tigger that rocks in a chair and reads The Night Before christmas to Roo.

My first card.........

Ok, so I've had this blog since January so I thought it was about time I posted a card. I have used all the things I wanted to win as blog candy. Martha Stewart butterfly punch and a tabletop decor kit. None of which I won so I bought them.

To celebrate my first card, I'm giving away some blog candy of one of the tabletop decor kits nad this card. Since I didn't win a kit, I went to Michael's and bought out the store. I have seven of them. Depending on how many people sign up depends on how many I give away. For every 10
people that sign up, I will give away 1 kit and so on.

The kit includes 8 place cards, 8 napkin rings, 8 votive holders, 8 vellum liners, 4 yds of paper trim, double sided adhesive. On this card I used some of the paper trim. All you have to do to win is leave a comment by July 30th, I'll pick a winner on July 31st. Simple as that. I will ship anywhere.

Fianlly. Here is Molly with her 3 babies. All boys. 2 gray and 1 black/white. Have not picked out names yet. The blac/white boy looks like a scotty dog so his might be scotty. No name for his brothers yet.

In this picture of our earlier set of twins, it looks like her name will be gidget ( the gray one), no name for the boy yet. We orginally wanted to name him sinatra, because he is such a lover. I'm thinking his name should be frankie.

I went from 2 goats to 7 goats in two weeks. 4 boys and 1 girl. 1 all white, 3 gray and white, and 1 black and white.

As usual, I am making my morning ritual of signing up for blog candy. I come across a website for a gal in MD. She's telling us all the great ribbons she is able to buy at the Offray Ribbon Outlet. Her blog is worth checking into. Go visit Stamping the Details for all the ribbon fun.

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

Every morning I visit a site called Stampin' When I Can. She always had a list of blog candy give aways. (I just need to remember to go back later in the day, the list is always updated.) While visiting all these site, there was one that had a tin full of ribbon and stickers. What a great idea ! I have a whole bunch of those mail boxes from Target. I need to start filling them and as I get one full, post a blog candy. Maybe you'll get one just letting me know what you think of my idea.

Friday, March 21, 2008

Coming Soon........... It seems Stamping Bella shipped my order twice. So I am going to give them away with some other goodies. Stay tuned.....You never know when it might show up.
My how time flies. I just got so caught up in a thread I found - PIF stamped images. Everyone has a list of images they will stamp and send you. Once you snag an image, you can post your list. Can I tell you, when the ladies are there, the snagging is more fun than the last few minutes of an ebay auction. I also joined a wish RAK. My stamps are getting a work out. Off to stamp. Hopefully I'll learn how to upload some of these cards I make.
