Good News for Me and You.

The boys and I are going camping this weekend, so I won't be around. I am a glutton for punishment -- we are camping all but 3 weekends this summer.

I have been doing this little Blogging adventure for a while. It's been over 3 years, can you believe it. I started this BLOG on November 16, 2006, but I pretend I have 2 anniversaries. You see I submitted a card to my first challenge on May 27, 2007. That is the day that I consider to be my "going public" day. Before that day I don't think anyone knew I was out "there" -- except my Stampin' Ladies. OK, scratch that Allison knew I was out there. She is the one that encouraged me to "Join" the blog world. Love ya girlie!!

I do have some news to share. I am going to be on a Design Team -- Yep little ole me. I still can't believe it. Lesley, from Always Playing with Paper, is starting a new Design Team, and she asked me to play along. Go check out her site!! -- That's my GOOD news

Your GOOD news is that I will be doing BLOG CANDY this weekend. I am terrible about putting things in the mail, so I am going to make this easy for you and me. I will be awarding a $25 gift certificate to one lucky lady. The gift certificate will be to anywhere that you want. I don't want to get into trouble with SU, so no companies that compete with SU, but anywhere else is fine. Oh and the company needs to accept online orders, so I can buy the gift certificate online. Will that work?

All you need to do is leave a comment here. I will have the Boys draw a name on Monday when we return. Do you want an extra chance for the CANDY? If you go over to Lesley's site, Always Playing with Paper, and become a follower of her site, I will put your name in the hat twice. Just let me know that you are a follower.

That's it for now. Have a GREAT holiday weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
