My Birthday Blog Candy

{This blog candy has ended. Please see newer posts}

**Note: this will stay at the top until the 12th. Please scroll down for newer posts--Thanks!
That's right...my birthday is February 12th--just 2 days before Valentine's Day and I'm in the mood to "spread some love"!! I have 2 packages to give away to 2 lucky winners... to "Thank You" for following my blog! (you can click the picture for a larger view)

EDITED TO ADD: Kelly from KLSNS Store has very kindly donated this super cute C.C. Designs stamp set called "It's My Birthday" to add to the celebration--thank you so much Kelly!! :)

Here's what's included in my package:
  • 12 stamped Magnolia images in 6 different designs
  • 12 6x6 Basic Grey® designer papers
  • Set of 6 gorgeous clear "poppies" stamps
  • 1 pack of beautiful matching "poppies" ribbon
  • 1 (non-pictured) card designed by me - have to add a li'l *surprise* don't I?

and another lucky winner will receive:

  • a C.C. Designs stamp set "It's My Birthday" (set of 6)

To be entered to win, please click to "follow this blog" (<---over there in my sidebar) and leave a comment here telling me you are a follower. Then, if you'd like a second chance at winning, please link this post on your blog to help spread the word, and leave me a 2nd comment here telling me you did that! I will use Random.Org to pick 2 winners at 5 p.m. (PST) on Feb. 12th.

Thank you all so much for visiting and leaving wonderful comments. You've really encouraged me these last 2 years and I appreciate you!
