BLOG CANDY TIME!! Count down to my blog 1st Birthday on December 5th!!

Countdown to my blog 1 year birthday!!


Hi everyone! Well, it's time for a blog candy! I'm doing a countdown towards my blog 1 year birthday which will be on December 5th. I'm also celebrating several blog milestones . . ..I've reached my 100,000 hits for Stampin Inspirations and 80,000 for Card Inspired and 1,000+ subscribers for both blog sites!! Whoohoo!!!

I would never have imagined that I would reach any of those milestones. Blogging has been such a fun part of my life. I've met many wonderful blog friends and sharing ideas with other people who have the same interest as I do.

Thank you to those who visit my site and comment. . .I really appreciate your comments because your input is very important to me. As a thank you. . .I will automatically add your name to the blog candy bucket for each comment you've made starting October 1st to November 29th.

There will be many opportunities to play. . .each time you play along, your name will be added to the blog candy bucket!

Want to play? Here are the rules:

First of all . . .comment this post and your name will automatically be added to a blog candy bucket in which I will be pulling a name out of to choose the winner!! Please comment on the post. DO NOT SEND ME AN EMAIL. My email is sort of messy right now and I may miss your comment so COMMENT ON THE POST ONLY.

#2 Starting tomorrow, I will be posting a "challenge" as a count down to my blog birthday so basically you have 6 opportunities to add your name. . .I'll keep the challenge simple such as ansking a question, asking for an opinion, sending a picture of your favorite card, etc.

#3 I will be posting this blog candy for both blog sites (Card Inspired and Stampin Inspirations) so you have two opportunities each day to submit your name.

I will be adding a prize each day starting tomorrow until the day the blog candy ends on DECEMBER 5th! All of the prizes will go to ONE lucky winner. I will announce the name of the winner on December 6th!! I'll post the first prize that will go into the prize bucket tomorrow!

I will be posting this same blog candy on Card Inspired for those who visit my Card Inspired blog site . Remember. . .you can play both blog sites. The challenges for both blog sites will be different so be sure to drop by both blog sites for more opportunities to submit your name!!

Come on and play along! You will LOVE the prize!

Again, thank you everyone for being such wonderful blog friends!!
