Thank you, Thank you, Thank you & BLOG CANDY!

This post will remain at the top until 9/20- at which point I will pick a winner using random.org. Newer posts will be below.

OK, so I get on my blog this am to post a card I made yesterday and I notice that in the last few days that my blog has jumped by over 1000 hits! It was a nice suprise to go from 9,600+ to over 11,000!!! I was contemplating doing some blog candy at 10,000, but I guess I have to now, since you all just made my day! :) (BIG GRIN!)

The card I was going to post today is a thank you card from the Very Thankful stamp set, how appropriate! So thank you, to all of you who visit my blog stories and come to see cards (or even if you just do one or the other)! It really means a lot to me to know that people enjoy what I create and I LOVE it when you leave comments.

9/11/09 ETA- Someone asked about the peacock and how it was done. The peacock was stamped in brilliant blue. I then colored in the blank parts of the feathers in with Taken with Teal and Green Galore. After I went around the feathers (and a bit on the head tuft) with my versamark pen. I used my SU! Gold embossing powder and heated it up. Wallah! All supplies were SU! with the exception of the ribbon, which was just to perfect to pass up. :)

So........how about some BLOG CANDY to show my appreciation?!?!?! This is what I am offering:

The color on the peacock is amazing! I think it might be my favorite ink color. And I guess I need a versamark pen now. :-) Lovely work, as always.
