When there is good conversation among friends interacting to each other's creativity there is MAGIC IN THE AIR!

Challenges run from Monday through Sunday; every two weeks.

Monday, July 13, 2009


OK.. here are the offical rules to this give-a-way! This will be a random drawing as well, your name will be entered once then be placed for entry in the random drawing. Please only leave one message on this post.

Requirements will be:

1) become a follower on THIS blog at Google Blogger, if you haven't already.

2) place the icon with the code on your blog so others can link back here, if you haven't already

3) Post on your blog or Face book about the blog candy give-a-way with a link back to as well, if you don't have a blog or facebook profile, I completely understand and you will still be eligible, but I will be checking this stuff out if your name is drawn, please be honest.

4) Leave a comment on this particular post,

For those who seriously don't have a blog to post my icon on or this information, I will make an exception and still place you into the drawing, but if you have one I expect you to follow my rules (I will be checking). I just don't want to leave anyone out on this celebration!! So, maybe you could e-mails friends a link here or spread the word by mouth.

I thought these items were fun summer time kind of things (value of this just over $60.00):

Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scallope Rectangles
2 sheets - Fruits & Flowers
1 sheet - The Paper Studio Lime Green with White Poka Dots
1 sheet - The Paper Studio Lime Yellow with White Poka Dots
1 sheet - The Paper Studio Lime Green Gingham
1 sheet - The Paper Studio Lime Green Gingham
1 sheet - The Paper Studio Black Gingham
4 assorted color cardstocks: black, lime green, pink and yellow
Prima Iced Got Flowers? - Summer Fun
House Mouse Stamp - Seed Shooter (Hop it)
Stampabilities - Hand stamped with Love
Love, Elsie - Emma - rub-ons
Best Occasions - Flower Accents (flowers brads buttons)
Stickles - Aqua
K&Company - Adhesive Gems
Dress it up - Big Glitter Dots - yellow
Dress it up - Micro mini hearts flirt buttons
Hot off the press - Shaped pink gingham brads
Gelly Roll Pens - Lime Star and Pink Star
American Craft Ribbon - 5 assorted colored rolls, 4 feet each

I am going to keep this up until that third week of August and on "Magical Monday" August 17th I will announce the winner. So that gives everyone plenty of time to get this done. If I get over 150 followers on the GOOGLE BLOGGER by then I might just kick another Spellbinders Nestabilities in!!

ok.. I hope you like what I picked! so.. get moving and I CAN'T wait to see who the lucky winner is!


Carla Weeks said...

Lisa Novak said...

Looks like a nice prize package! Count me in!...also, for those of you who like Stampin Up! check out my web site. (I hope you don't mind Nian). I have just be diagnosed with breast cancer, and had surgery on Friday. So, I decided to "Stamp out Breast Cancer". My site is http://lisaloves2stamp.stampinup.net. A percentage of all purchased from my site at the "Shop Now" tab will be donated to the Susan G. Koman Foundation. Together, we can Stamp Out Breast Cancer!....

Lynn said...

Hi Nina,
I posted your link on my blog

and then I told everyone about what a great artist you are and that you have more talent in your pinky finger than I do in my whole body! I also told them you were one of my favorite artist! I also told them about the yummy blog candy that I hope I win.I am also a follower of this blog!
Have a blessed week..

ps Lisa, I will keep you in my prayers. This is my Mom's 10th year anniversary of being cancer free. Please check in with the America Cancer Society. They have all kinds of programs available to cancer patients. You should take advantage of the look good feel good program. I took Mom to her appt. She got a box of makeup from top brand names, the licensed cosmeticogolist showed her how to use her make up to make her look her best. She had the best time and left there in better spirits than she had been in days. It is free. I wish you all the best as you fight this battle. My prayers will be with you!

"Kirby" (KrB) said...

This is super generous blog candy, and I mentioned it on my Wednesday, July 15 post with a link to this blog. Very exciting!

Anonymous said...

I can't believe your givaway, it is so huge. I don't have the Spellbinders Nestabilities Rectangles, so I really hope that I win. I also don't have a lot of what is on the list, including stickles, and Hot Off the Press Brads. Man, am I behind the times or what? So much new stuff comes out all of the time that it is so hard to keep up with it all. Winning would just be soooooooooo cool.

Happy stamping to all.
