Yummy Ornament Candy and a Surprise Candy Too


Hello everyone, this is what you will win (sorry the picture is so small), but it's Basic Grey undressed chipboard ornaments. One winner will win this and another winner will win a surprise Christmas present from me that will include some chipboard ornaments as well as paper, stamps and an empty nugget tin to decorate and probably some other surprises as well, trust me it will be worth it to win! All of my candy is always sweet!

So you have two chances to win something fun. All you have to do is leave me a comment, anything going on in your neck of the woods?, having trouble finding that WII, already digging into the Christmas cookies? Just leave me a comment on how you're doing. I like to know how all of my friends in blogland are doing.

I sent out my first batch of Christmas cards. These are the holiday photo cards that I sent to my family and friends with Tyler's Christmas picture. I am still working on making my Christmas cards for my co-workers and then I attach a homemade Christmas card to presents to friends and family.

If you have read this far...then I would love to send a handmade Christmas card to you. I will send a card to the first 12 people who comment on this blog candy post and THEN send me an email with their addy. All I ask in return is that sometime in the year 2008, you send me a card back and give me happy mail!

Enjoy your weekend, I will be back with a few altered items that I'm sending to my secret elf!

WOW, I can't believe I'm the first one to post. I would love this blog candy and a Christmas card from you. I am making a wedding cake this weekend. I have been making some cards and managed to get 1 mailed. Ha! Have a great day.

Kewl! Thanks for the chance to win, and I'd be thrilled to get a card from you - and send one back! :D

Nothing much going on here. Work is busy, boss is grumpy, and I'm just looking forward to baking with my mom tomorrow!

Lilian said...

well, i just finished and delivered my first christmas boxed set of cards. i made them all in one night! that's what i get for procrastinating...

this weekend will probably be spent in making more cards to mail out. :)

Let's see...what's happening here. I'm fighting a cold that seems to be striving to hang on as long as possible. Ugh! We're making the switch from football to basketball for #1 son, basketball and volleyball for #2 daughter, and basketball for #3 son. We stay plenty busy, let me tell ya'!

JenMarie said...

Aw, I'd LOVE Creating with the Heart original!!! :)
Not too much going on, I've been stamping up a storm though!!
Merry Christmas!!

Rita said...

Fantastic! I would love to have a Cindy original!!! I luv your cards & blog. As for me I have sent out 3/4 of my Christmas cards already. Now I have only a few more to make.

Ornament candy is wonderful!! You are very generous to offer cards in addition to the candy. I'll let someone else that needs the card more get it instead of me. I made sugar cutout cookies a few days ago and before I could get around to frosting/decorating them, my hubby ate half of them! So I've decided not to even bother with decorating them! Maybe next year!
Thanks!

Oohhh I enjoy your blog so much. Cool candy! I'm baking sugar cookies with my best friend tomorrow. Can't wait - we do this every year and have so much fun.

What a great idea! I would love to get a card, send one back and possibly even win some candy?
Around here, my neighbor had a baby girl this morning, so I am in the market for an adorable little girl project for little "cami" . Cute name, hunh? I am working on my swaps. We are doing Christmas tags. Tim Holtz' site has a lot of inspiration to offer. Have you seen his tags? Thanks for the chance. Thanks for sharing your cards!

Starqueen said...

Hi Cindy,
What's going on in my world? I live in Massachusetts and it's snowing, and I'm making Christmas cards all nice and warm at home! It's lovely! I probably won't think so tomorrow when I have to drive in it, but tonight it's lovely!

Thanks for sharing!

Allison said...

I have to comment since your candy is always so tasty!

Work is stupid busy (which cuts into my crafting time!). Usually it winds down between Thanksgiving and Christmas...not this time!

Cathy said...

Wow sweet candy here and even surprise candy. I love surprises. I want to play. I just love getting your updates. I've sent my batch of Christmas cards out the day after Thanksgiving. I love being the first and getting everyone in the spirit. I would love getting one of your creative Christmas cards and I would love to sent one of mine to you.
Thanks for a chance.

Love your candy it's always so yummy. I'm busy making Christmas card lately and I've sent about 1/2 of them so far. I still have letters to write and a to do list that's way too long but I'm making headway slowly but surely.

Pat S. said...

Oh...man....I just missed out on one of your cards :(
I really love your work!
Thank you for offering yet another great prize.
I make Christmas cards in groups. I have finished my first group which has 24 cards. Four more groups to go, and nothing in the mail yet...I have my work cut out for me this weekend!

canben said...

Ugh! We're SWAMPED right now! My hubby, daughter, and I are all in our church's Christmas Cantata. This weekend is the show - 7pm nightly on Fri, Sat, Sun, and Mon, AND a matinee on Sat! AND I "get to" watch 20 kids who are holed up in a room for 2 hours then let out and expected to behave! ARGH! LOL

nettystamps said...

Okay the optomist in me says that maybe a couple of the previous posts "forgot" to send you their addy so I am going to beg for the xmas card anyway and send my address...who knows maybe I will be lucky! LOL The candy looks yummy! And I am busy making the homemade portion of my xmas gifts! Where does time go?

Val said...

Well, I am still struggling on the design for my Christmas cards!! They should have been out by now, but I haven't even gotten them made. Looks like I didn't make the first 12...oh well! Thanks for always having such wonderful blog candy!

Brenda said...

Sweet surprise candy Cindy!
Work is crazy busy!! Wish I could just stay home...decorate the Christmas tree, bake cookies, wrap gifts & stamp!! Thanks for this chance to win!

Reality Show Reject said...

such wonderful candy! I love getting candy! I've finally started getting decorations out. Still do not have the tree up, but it will be up before the weekend is over. And hopefully, all of my gifts will be made and/or purchased and wrapped too, so i can concentrate on doing some ME stuff. Thanks for the chance to win!

Monica-FC said...

I am getting ready to start baking christmas cookies as I have all my ingredients ready. Plus all my cards have been done since last month but no envys.

Tracy.H said...

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!!

I am on a mission this weekend to finish up my Christmas cards and then get them sent off next week...wish me luck! ;0)

Jan Scholl said...

as a matter of fact,, I am having a problem finding a WII but not for a christmas gift. My daughter-30 s0mething-wanted one for her birthday. but when the stores have them in the ads, its too late as they have them sold out the back door. its a scam and got a lot of people pissed off. oh well, I am getting her a Flip camcorder instead. Probably more useful as she is going to Florida for the holidays. and i get to watch her cats-since I have no life anyways.

Linda SS said...

The Nutcracker is here this week which is something I look forward to. I am going to my Stamp A Latte club's Christmas party tomorrow so I'm looking forward to that as well. But the most exciting thing going on, is my 5 yr. old granddaughter is spending the night Sat. night. I am going to build a gingerbread house with her & I rented the movie Firehouse Dog. (although I'm now a bit concerned because I noticed it's rated PG13) Have a great weekend, Cindy:)

Elaine said...

Hmmm...we just finished our first major storm of the season in WA....it was terrible! The road behind our house closed - I thought it was a minor mudslide, but it looks like there is a house that may be in jeopardy....quite a big deal, but not as severe as the dike that broke in Chehalis WA....it closed I-5. Hopefully all those people have power restored soon, and they stay safe and warm the rest of the season.

Suzy said...

Hey there

We are about to hit Wal-Mart LOL! DH is playing Santa to 25 kids on Sunday and we are going to shopping for their presents - lots of Bratz dolls, Barbie Heads and things I have never heard of have been requested.

I am not the first 12 but I would *love* to send you some happy mail - you have sent me so many!

Please send me your addy I kept it from the envelope and lost it :(

Well, Cindy, my husband came back from being out of town, so the boys and I are very happy. My youngest will be 3 on Monday, so we are doing his party at McDonald's Sunday afternoon. When that is finished, then I can really concentrate on Christmas. Thanks for all you do; I love to see what you come up with every week. Blessings, Laura laura_turner99@hotmail.com

NormaJ said...

Wow, you have lots of people wanting a card from you, and I thought I was an early-bird too.
Oh well, it still gives me a chance
to wish you a Merry Christmas anyway. I have mailed all my cards
so hopefully I got them all. And for something going on, well, we
took our grand-daughters, 7 and 4,
out to supper tonight and had a
wonderful time. They are very good
to take out, so it was lots of fun.

Right now I am the only one up in the house, doing laundry and trying to quietly do housework, as we have a babysitter coming tonight and my house is trashed. I have yet to finish my Christmas cards, or shopping or baking, AHHHH!!! Anyway, hope you have a great day!

Tanja said...

I think I need intervention. I've done nothing for Christmas yet! We are going to see the nutcracker today. Does that count? I will do some work this weekend!

dasimonds said...

Hi Cindy..
I have been very busy too..
I have all my Christmas cards done
and am trying to get them all sent out...some I hand deliver with a baked holiday treat.
It's cold and snowy here.. I still have to run out and finish up my shopping. I still have some homemade gifts to finish too.
I can't wait to start my baking...
that always puts me in the holiday mood.
Happy Holidays to you and your family.
Thanks for a chance to WIN.

Penny said...

Right now, I am feeling very overwhelmed with all of the Christmas preps, plus everything else in life.

I would love a Christmas card, and I definitely should start working on some of my own! LOL

Kelly's Artistic Journaling said...

Bluemoon said...

What great candy! I made a humungus stamping mess all over my kitchen dining room to get a swap and a card out yesterday. Had to change my Xmas card due to things not available, and been working on them for 3 weeks. 6 different cs, 3 stamps, hand painting & embossing with cb, precision cutting, not to mention the bling and embellishments, they're not ready and I have another set to do. Yikes!!! I need an elf LOL :).

debbiedee said...

I have been busy making Christmas cards. Today I am working on Christmas gifts. I am making mom and MIL tins with file folder dividers for each month and will put in cards too.

Niki said...

Great blog candy! Congrats to those getting Christmas cards!

Alison Molumby said...

I just finished up a Christmas Stamp-A-Stack here at my house; one girl did 30 cards in the 3-hour time period. I thought that was pretty cool! I'll finish up my cards with the leftover cardstock and get my cards out this week. Yipee! Thanks for the awesome blog and candy op.

Estivalia said...

we haven't even got the tress set up for the holidays. Here we only use artificial pines since we don't have real pines! So, it's hard to get into the christmas mood.

Oh, well, I did manage to make a gift and a card for a friend in spain, so I'm not completely lost.

scfranson said...

Happy Holidays! Just cleaning today and tonight hubby and I are going out on a date.

Sunday is a whole day of cooking. I'm originally from Panama and a group of panamanians are getting together to cook a typical panamanian dish call "tamal" (not much in common with the mexican tamal). It is always great fun. Thanks for the chance to win some fun candy. Sandra

Deb said...

Life is hectic here at the moment, we had the village fair fundraiser yesterday along with a fundraiser quiz night last night. This week I am helping with the nativity costumes and my Mum is coming to stay until after Christmas. Hoping to squeeze in the odd card or 2 somewhere this week!
Hope you have a good week too!
