January Blog Candy Bonanza # 2!

I'm celebrating ten thousand visitors this week, with THANK YOU gifts. I'm so glad you keep coming back!

This second set of blog candy lets you CHOOSE what you want!

There are four separate blog candy posts this week, so make sure you see them all.

Two of my design team bosses have generously donated goodies for my celebration!

On offer for Blog Candy # 2 are three unmounted Quiet Fire Design rubber stamps, based on the beautiful hand calligraphy of Susanne Cannon, who creates in the beautiful western Canadian province of British Columbia. THANK YOU Suzanne! I ordered my first Quiet Fire stamps nearly one year ago, and liked them SO MUCH that I begged and grovelled till Suzanne let me on her design team. Now I use them all the time, and have had several cards published with them, with more to come this spring.

So, to win ONE of the three calligraphy stamps, please leave a comment on this post after you visit Suzanne's Quiet Fire Design site, where you'll see all the wonderful goodies she carries...especially interesting to mixed media design artlets. You can get to the stamps section by simply clicking on "Rubber Stamps and Accessories" at the menu on the left hand side of her home page.

Each of three winners will get to choose one unmounted calligraphy stamp up to a value of $8.00, which Suzanne will ship to you at her cost. If you decide to order anything else from the site, you'll receive a $3 credit towards postage of your order.

Oh! And if you haven't signed up for her newsletter yet, you should...LOTS of wonderful things in there! Just sign up on the right hand side, and request to be added to the list. There's also a newsletter archive for your reading pleasure.

WHEW! Okay, this random draw of three winners will be done Sunday January 13th. The winning draws will be posted Sunday, the winner will have 24 hours to contact me, so please do check back Sunday evening.

If I don't hear back from the winners within 24 hours, alternate draws will be made.

Good luck!
