5,000 Hit Heart Candy

Wow, I can't believe that I have had 5,000 hits. To celebrate, the candy this week is super fabulous.
I'm giving away this Hit the Beach MFT set and 6x6 Basic Grey paper pad called Perhaps. I have an extra cream copic marker but I can't find it. If I find it I'm putting that with this prize too. It's around here somewhere..need to clean my stamp area. Anyhow, I bought two of these sets somehow so here it is for this special giveaway.

3 runners up will receive this alphabet set! To win is very simple, just leave a comment saying where you're from! Thanks to everyone for visiting my blog.

I didn't have whole lot of time to stamp the last couple of days and yesterday I started cleaning up my stamp area. It's a disaster. When you have less than two inches of space to work, it's time to clean it up!


I did make this cute tin though. I got the tin from Paper Trey Ink. I stamped avery labels with a stamp from Spooky Treats (Paper Trey Ink) and wrapped them around Hershey nuggets. The colors used were CTMH sunflower and Autumn Terracotta. My husband loved this and wants me to make Christmas ones for his co-workers. I think it would make a very sweet gift.

I hope everyone has a great weekend, don't forget to post here on this comment to win the candy!
