BLOG CANDY #2 – Thank You!

This being my 1st year Blog Anniversary, I just wanted to take a minute here to say “THANK YOU” to each and every one of you. Blogging is so much fun and I have so completely enjoyed it all. However, the reason it’s fun is because of YOU, each and every one of you. Knowing that someone will stop in to read, look or sharemakes it all so worth-while. I love to play games and our Friday Stamp Simply Challenge only works because we have players each week — and now our *Celebration* — oh my, what a fun party bunch you all are — it makes me want to throw parties more often — LOL!!! So, what it all boils down to, is that I’m able to get so much enjoyment out of this crazy venture called Blogging because of each and every one of YOU — and I just want to say “Thank You, Thank You, Thank You — EVER so much!!” You all mean more to me than you can possibly imagine!!!

So as Blog Candy today, I am offering you a Stamp Simply Thank You set. I LOVE these beautiful tulips and gorgeous caligraphy in the background stamp and sentiments.

And here’s the card I did today using the smaller of the tulips. As much as I love the sentiments in this set, I left my card with no sentiment. I do like to keep cards on hand that I can grab for any purpose and then finish them off with a sentiment when needed.
