Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming to visit me!!!

Seriously, it's fun to not only see the hits climb (people have been here!), but for those of you who have commented here and there....THANK YOU sooo much!  Seriously...a comment makes my day!  I am so excited to be celebrating 10,000 hits on my blog!

(((cue interuptive 'time to finish it up and move on' music)))

I have TWO Candy Options:
For you crafty people, here's the candy!

Yummy yards of ribbon, metal tags, and lots of eyelets, primas (flowers), and confetti flowers, a clear mini stamp set, and Stampin' Up buttons!

For you...people who don't craft....I'll send either:
A) 5 random cards I've made, or
B) A set of matching monogram cards.

What do you think about that?  After winner is chosen, I'll let them choose their candy.  Who knows...if we have a TON of comments, maybe I'll just choose two people and give both gifts! ;-)

Soooo....what do you need to do to win the candy?

Comment on this post! :)

Tell me whatever you want to tell me (but be nice! lol)...
What you'd like to see more of, what's your favorite post from me so far, whatever you'd like! I'd love to hear from you! :)

Annonymous Commenters: Please add your first name and last initial in the same box as your comment. Why? Because if there's all these annonymous comments with no names, how would we know who won? lol

You know what would be great, too (but not necessary to win)?  Become a follower of the blog! :)  See RH sidebar at very bottom with all the little thumnail pics?

Comments open until Monday morning (Jan. 11th) at 10AM PST.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)

  2. Hi Crystal! Congratulations on the 10,000! Your work is lovely, and I love to see the pictures and read the descriptions that you post! It's great to get inspiration for new ideas.

  3. Hey Crystal... so fun! I love giveaways! And I love your blog. Glad we connected in the blogosphere here this last week. I'll be visiting frequently and love to see your creative cards (I need to improve cardmaking skills and will love your inspiration!).

    Come visit my blog next week for my giveaways!

  4. Congratulations on 10,000 hits and many more to come.

  5. Woo hoo! 10,000 already!? SO proud of you :) Anyways, I am loving your frequent card ideas and the handmade for the holidays ideas were GREAT :)

  6. WOW Crystal, 10k hits is AWESOME - well done! I don't even need to win anything, but WOW seriously, 10k is AMAZING.

    Okay, so you can tell I'm an amateur at blogging...but then I guess when the main point of the blog is to keep Grandma and Papa updated on their faraway grandkids, you don't get quite as many, I think my 2.5 year old blog has 12k hits...pretty sad! But your ideas are awesome - they make me want to get back into crafting :-) Congrats!

  7. Congratualtions on 10,000 blog hits. Something to be proud of. I really like your card making style. I will be checking your site for inspiration!
    Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy!

  8. Congratulations on 10,000 hits. I enjoy visiting your blog and have it under my card favourites. You have many great ideas that can be translated into different cards.

  9. YEA for 10,000 hits! That is so awesome that you have that many hits! I would like to see masculine cards. You have beautiful creations that I feel like I could actually recreate and I always struggle with cards for the men in my life. I recently found your blog but have really enjoyed looking back over your old posts and look forward to reading your ones in the future.

  10. Hello! :)
    Found your blog through splitcoast...i've have fun looking.
    Many cute projects, but love your projects using m&m's. I've never seen them before...creative! Congrats on 10,000 hits!
    Happy day~

  11. I just discovered you Crystal via SCS and your gorgeous LSC challenge white and red card. You must add SUO (stampinup only) to your keywords, so even more of us SU fans will see your gorgeous creations. Thanks too for the opportunity to win candy. How cool to reach 10,000 hits. Your new fan.......nancy littrell

  12. You always have cute stuff, from cards to gift ideas. You are one talented girl! =)

  13. I really enjoyed your 12 gift ideas for Christmas! I love looking at all your ideas and cards! You do a great job!

  14. I have enjoyed your work on SCS, even though I didn't realize until walking thru your blog that several items I recognized were all belonging to you. Great work & great inspiration. Keep it up. I really appreciate the CAS cards. Thanks for sharing.
