CANDY, CANDY, CANDY!

****CLOSED****

It's
CANDY time - nom nom nom!



I found some Christmas candy - finally!!!! Wahooooo!!! Let me blab for a bit k? So I went to check out the Christmas scrapping paper packs and didn't think anything was good enough for my blogging buddies. So I went over to the other paper pack section and I found Cosmo Cricket. Michaels only has two different packs, which just came in to their store. When I went to pay for it, it didn't even come up as a store item. I mentioned that maybe it would be free, but no such luck :) I held up the line for about 5 minutes (every one behind me was pleased as punch). But finally found the price and it was all good.... So that is my story.



Cosmo Cricket Earth Love & the Boyfriend 48 12 x 12 sheets of sweet goodness:

Retail price: $32 CAD which is approximately $29.71 USD and 20.13 EUR :)

Isn't it delish - I want it for myself!!!

~~~~~~~~~

I also have "Runner Up Candy"!!

Colorbok Chipboard Book - 5 sheet snowman
studio g holiday clear stamps - 5 packs in total varying from 3 - 5 stamps in each



(closer look at the stamps)


Retail price: $10 CAD which is approximately $9.29 USD and 6.29 EUR :)

Soooo, now I have to come up with some rules:

1. Become a follower and you get an entry, if you are already a follower you get an entry as well

2. You will get another TWO entries if you post/link on your blog about my Candy (please leave me a comment and your link on this post that you have done this, then I can allow for the extra entries)

3. You can also get another entry by commenting on this post and telling me something I don't know about you. Yes, I am snoopy - really though, I love to learn more about my blogging buddies. That's what makes us BUDDIES!

More rules:

If I can reach 100 followers, I will also throw in ANOTHER Cosmo Cricket paper pack - yeppers, double the yumminess!

This candy will close 11:59pm EST, Friday, November 20th. I will do a random draw and the winners will be posted on Saturday, November 21st.

This contest is open to all my world wide blogging buddies :)

Thank you everyone!!!!!

OMG!!!!!
This blog candy is so YUMMY!!!
Im crossing my fingers for the runner up blog candy******

TeeHee ;)

Im already a follower ;)
AND! I will for sure be posting this delicious goodness on my blog.
AND!! Something about me??

I was attacked by a black lab when I was 7yrs. old and ever since then Ive been terrifed of dogs.
But this past May, my hubby brought home a 5 yr. old cocker spaniel, DIVA, and INSTANTLY her and I bonded!! She is my best friend and I LOVE her SOOOOOOOOO much! I would have never thought to ever love a dog as much as I love my DIVA.
I still am scared of bigger dogs, but not so much little ones anymore.

<3

Lynda said...

Fabulous candy Deanne - you could become my personal crafting shopper - you definitely know what's IN!

Love Lynda xxx

Sandra M. said...

I seriously love those x-mas stamps!!! I NEED them

Hehehehe....so something else you don't know about me besides my love for the swiffer...hhmmmmmmm, well I love rice! Like I often times for a snack will cook up a bowl of white rice. I am just realizing I am such a geek....but that is one more thing you now know about me :)

Hope your having a great Halloween weekend!!....Sandra

Marisa said...

I came to leave you a comment after your lovely comment on my card and looky what I found - blog candy :D You did a great job with the mojo sketch. Love the colours you used.

Love your Mike's story :D way to go getting things right away -- at the one here things FLY off the shelf and if it is a seasonal thing if you miss it too bad, so sad! I missed these cute Studio G stamps at my Mikes - may have to dig around next time LOL!

Something about me. I was born in Costa Rica and have lived in the USA (5 years while at University), Canada (where I live now) and The Netherlands (for a year while I worked with Billy Graham Association).

Jingle said...

I, of course, already follow your fabulousness!

As far as something about me that you don't know....well, I can't eat off of yellow plates. I hate them. I just can't do it. The thing that is more odd is that when I was sharing this with my Mother several years ago (because she got a couple of yellow plates) she told me that it was totally weird. Then, my sister came in and saw the yellow plates and told Mom not to give her that one because she can't eat off of yellow plates! HA! It must be genetic! LOL!

thescrapmaster said...

Well, I am already your adoring follower and I would absolutely LOVE to get me so cosmo. . . never had any before. . I know crazy talk huh?!

Hmmmm. . . what don't you know about me???? I am TOTALLY freaked out my mustard. I am completely serious. It gives me the creeps! It is the freakiest stuff in the world and I can't even look at it. When making a sandwich for my fiance, I make him put his own mustard on the sandwich. If it wasn't for him, we wouldn't even have it in the house LMBO! :O)

Hugs,
Samantha

sprigofivy said...

I love those Xmas stamps!!!

I have posted you on my blog at:
http://sprigofivy.blogspot.com/2009/11/check-out-my-fellow-wbers-blog.html

And, something you don't know about me.. This is easy.. I am a Saskatoonian, who is an amateur scrapper.. but addicted (I am FeministSprig on WB)...

Allison said...

How did I not see your blog candy earlier?? :)

Well, obviously I'm a follower and hmm, something you don't know about me... I have a really low tolerance for caffeine.

At the beginning of the school year when the teachers had to stay at the school until 8pm-ish to meet the parents (like a 12hr day), I thought it would be a good idea to get a coffee to keep me alert. Even though it took me most of the day to finish the medium, I was literally bouncing off the walls by the end of the night LOL. Needless to say, not a great first impression when I'm talking a mile a minute to the parents about their kids haha.

Thanks for the chance to win! That Cosmo paper looks awesome!!

Jen said...

Okay, I'm already a follower.

Something you don't know about me is I hate condiments on my food. I don't want any "special sauce" or mustard or relish or mayonnaise. I want it plain with cheese and that's that. :o)

how about this:
i once had a cat who got under my feet while i was walking back to my room in the middle of the night, and i stepped on her and rolled forward, smacking my face against the wall, breaking my nose, and giving myself a lovely concussion, plus raccoon eyes for two weeks! it was a good time. LOL.

Something you don't know about me, something not many people know about me actually: I have to eat small items in EVEN NUMBERS. Like grapes, or junior mints, skittles, stuff like that, I can't eat one and I can't eat three... it has to be two or four, or six.... It's weird, I know.

lucretia said...

Hi, I've just discovered your blog and I'm curious too, so would like to know more. Can't think what to say. Well, I was so blonde as a child (and beyond) that the other children called me Albino. I don't have any sisters, but always wanted one. I can paint and draw with both hands, but can only write with my right hand.
