Blog Candy!!!

I was going to wait until I hit 10,000 visitors but I just can't! Since I'm going to be gone for a few days I thought it would be fun to give a little candy away. You will be receiving the SAB set Happy Harmony, some eyelets, some die cuts, file folder labels, and some cute ribbon I found at Michaels on Monday. What fun, huh?

Now for the rules. You may enter once a day Thursday through Saturday. I will choose a number from the total number of entries on Sunday morning and post the winner here.

When you post tell me what you'd like to see on my blog. More SU! cards or projects. More non-SU! cards or projects, more scrapbook pages, tutorials or maybe less of something. Don't just say that my blog is fine...let me know what you'd like to see! Easy schmesy, huh?

If there happens to be more than 100 entries by Sunday morning then I'll add something extra in so make sure you tell your friends to post!

***I had originally said the contest is Thursday through Saturday but so many of you are already posting that I'll extend it to include today, Wednesday!***

98 comments that make my day!:

MMM that ribbon is Yum-o! I really like your cards (SU or otherwise) and would love to see more of them. I don't know why you're gonna be gone but I hope you have fun!!

diane mcvey said...

Awesome! If I had to choose, I'd say more cards...SU and Bellas! And Penny Black, if you have some...LOVE the blog as it is, though!!! :)

Rochelle W said...

I guess I would have to say that I like 3D items better than cards. I have an easy time making them and a hard time coming up with a card. So I would like to see some more 3D items from you.

Karin said...

I don't think you can ever have too many SU samples so just keep them coming! I like a variety of items, cards and non-cards.

Tia :) said...

First of all, I LOVE your blog title. That about sums it up! :) I really like your cards too, but I love seeing cards that are a step up, like your most recent post with the mouse on it. I would love to see more of that. Keep up the good work!!!

Desiree said...

Denise said...

I just love Stampin' Up, so you can showcase that all you want. I like the cards and little projects for those the best, as i haven't gotten into the Scrapbooking yet.
I would love to see shom recipes, so I can figure out something to creat only with my own style.
Thanks for a great blog site!
Denise

Marion Wilkinson said...

I love that ribbon too! Definitely need to get to Michaels. I would love tutorials and more SU cards or scrapbook pages.

Debby said...

Hi Lorie, I would love to see more tutorials. They really make me want to get in there and get to working on my crafts.

saucersrus said...

I'm so glad to find your blog. I will add it to my favorites to check often. I would really like to see more scrabook pages as that is what I like to stamp best and would love some inspiration.

Amy

Lee-Ann said...

This is the first time I have visited your site and from what I see I will be returning regularly. Personally I love any new idea especially projects made with the mini catalogs. The tutorials are fabulous too! I'm always looking for new scrapbooking and 3D ideas. Great job on your blog! Good variety.

Dawn aka TreasureOiler said...

hmmmmm well since I am a new SU! demo I'd love to see more SU! stuff....you have wonderful ideas!! I just love to see what can be created with SU! products! Wonderful blog you have!

Allison said...

Awesome candy Lorie...love your creations! I am a card gal almost exclusively since I don't have time for much else!

Y said...

I would love to see more SU cards (love your cards) and bella cards! I really like the cards with the different folds too (the tri fold is awesome!)

Congratulations all the hits!

SuzanneM said...

Alex said...

Oh see thats easy more SU card creations please, you give great inspiration please keep it up, hope you have a great few days off

Misti said...

This is one set I don't have!!! I am quite challenged when it comes to scrapbooking, so I guess I would love to see more scrapbook pages! I am much better at cards!!! This is the first time I've visited your site. Great Job!
I am a Child of God and wife to Tod also!! I have one boy and one girl!

Mary Campbell said...

I love your blog and check it everyday. I love SU cards. I would love more card ideas. Thank you, Mary

lawoodley@comcast.net said...

Don't you just love blogs...I really should set one up. I have really enjoyed visiting yours. You have done a fantastic job! OK, things I would like to see on your site...definitely more SU! scrapbook pages, 3-D items & maybe tutorials. I would rather only see stuff made with SU! products because I am always looking for ideas for our products. Thanks so much for sharing with us!
- Lisa Woodley

mbsimmons said...

First of all, KUDOS to YOU for having time with three kids to be SOOOO creative. I wish I could get it together. What would I like to see more of?? Scrapbooking with SU! products. I really want to get better at scrapbooking and love to see others ideas. Thanks so much for your inspiration!

Stamperosity said...

Wow...what great blog candy you have my dear...{giggle} Actually, I think your blog is great just the way it is. I think you have a nice mix of SU! and other company's products! Thanks for all of your time and effort.

tntsmom said...

It would be fun to see some projects other than cards.. But I love all the cards too! Great blog!!
Thanks, Stefanee

Wendy stampinfool@tds.net said...

I love CUTE cards, lots of ribbon, lots of color. 3D items w/ good instructions for us 'challenged' stampers would be great. I bookmarked your blog and look forward to seeing your creations!

doverdi said...

I personally like a little of everything...tutorials, altered projects, scrapbook pages as well as both non SU & SU cards. Since I do both scrapbooking & stamping I love to try all different things. I think you have a great blog as it is. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us.

Frances said...

I would love to see more 3-D items &/or cards with unusual folds. Of course, you need to include the directions for such items. :-)
Frances

kansmom said...

Carmen said...

I love all stamping projects - it doesn't matter to me which stamps you use!!

Peggy said...

What generous blog candy!
I love seeing a variety of projects - cards, altered items, RAKs - you do a great job w/ that already showing us all different fun things... It's great seeing what you do as a demo since my demo doesn't hold classes or anything like that!

Renée said...

I'd love to see more SU cards and projects. Mostly, 3D items would be my thing! I have a hard time visualizing my own ideas sometimes!

Jackie said...

I love all cards, I used to only make and look at SU cards, but recently I have grown to use other stamp companies things. More cards are always a plus :)

Amy Collins said...

I love all things SU!...cards, scrapbook pages, and 3D stuff! But I really love your signature/watermark with the cross! And Contemporary Christian music is my favorite, too. Casting Crowns is one of my favorite groups, how about you?

Nancy said...

I would love to see cards that are all SU as well as cards that use other companies' stuff... we're all stampers, not just SU lovers I think! I may sell SU, but I enjoy using anything that makes my heart happy!

Anonymous said...

Hi!
I love your blog!
I'd like more SU cards, but even more scrapbook pages. That's where my heart lies.
I love to work out an idea on a card, but scrappin's my passion!
Thanks for the blog candy contest!
Karen.

Heidi Sorg said...

Your cards are so very cute. I am newr to stamping & have been "caseing" your work. I would love to see more SU examples. I still am trying to get ideas & learn what I can do with what. Thank you for the fine example you are setting to some of us "newbies" out there! I also think it is so awesome that you give away blog candy!! Me loves Candy!!

Lisa said...

I'm definitely more of a "project" kind of gal. I love giving stamped items as gifts and am always looking for new ideas. So yes - SU projects.

Everything else looks wonderful

Lisa

Jennifer said...

Hmmm, I guess I'd like to see more tutorials -- I'm a very visual learner.

Great goodies!!! Have a safe trip! :)

scfranson said...

I'd love to see more holiday cards made with all kinds of stamps, not just SU.
Claudia F.

KMartinez said...

Since I am a very visual SU demo, I would love to see some more of your wonderful SU cards and projects!
Karen

Barb Shelton said...

Just found your blog...it's great.
If I were to suggest anything to add I would say SU cards, tutorials, "anything but a card" type things. Just do what comes natural to you. Everyone will follow. Thanks for sharing. Barb S.

L8ybug2 said...

I like to see cards, gift items and scrapbook pages...Great Blog Candy!
~~Rita~~

Leah said...

yummy blog candy! :D I just found your blog through Allison's ... fab-u-lous! I love to see masculine cards (since they seem to be such a challenge for most of us) & also 3D objects :D TFS!

Cher said...

Great Blog Candy.
I love to view all the SU cards and projects. It's nice to see what others are doing in the stamping world.
-Cher

Anonymous said...

I always like to see any and all samples of any project using SU stamps!!! I love their stamps
Ilene

Jackie said...

I have to say I would love to see more non-SU projects and cards, since I don't own very many SU sets and only a couple of the ink pads. Not that most things can't be adapted to use other stamps, but I just like seeing what others come up with. Hero Arts, Penny Black, Impression Obsession and Stampendous are on my top ten list :-)

Darlene L said...

This is my first visit to your blog. It is awesome. Love your sample cards--thanks for sharing your God given talent!

leify said...

Well....Your blog is awesome as it is, I just signed up yesterday to receive notices.
I would like to tutorials on scrapbooks. I'm SO not creative.
Thanks!!!

Well, I love your blog as it is, I could use some tutorials on scrapbooking

Lynda said...

I look to blogs for inspiration for making my own cards. Love to see different color combos and the vatious use of embellishments.
Lynda

Heidi Teadt said...

I always need help with more 12x12 pages. I also love your 3D items, so more of them would be great, too.

Heather B said...

More non-SU cards and projects would be great!
Thanks, Heather B

Ashley said...

I would love to see more S'U! card and project examples using more then just the mini catalogs images. I know you have several from the annual catalog, but just for future reference it would be great to see more from the big catalog. Even so, I think many demo's buy the same stamps and no one uses the stamps I have ( how dare they!) .. I just get in major ruts and can't figure out what to do with my stamps. I get tired of seeing the same sets on every blog just because it's "popular" with the demo's. That would be really helpful to me. Love your creations!

MiMi's Place said...

I have enjoyed all of the things you have shared with us on your blog. I especially like the non card items that can be used for small gifts to friends. I also like the scrapbooking - it seems maybe you are having the same problem I am..... not time to scrap and stamp cards, so one has to take the back seat.

You are an inspiration to those who keep coming back. Keep up the good work.

Nancy Clark

Adelina said...

wow! That looks like a great prize. I'd like to see more cards. I really like seeing them because you do an amazing job with them.

Lori Faeber said...

Love the blog candy! I always love to see card samples. I guess I do love to see SU samples, but I love any card samples really. I love to see different techniques and colors put together.
Thanks!!

Yummy candy! I would love to see more SU cards that use just SU supplies. Sometimes it is hard to find all the supplies that aren't SU so that I can make what you bloggers make that I fall in love with. Thanks and congrats for a terrific blog.
Cheryl

Judy said...

Michelle said...

I love SU products! so keep them coming!
Since I am an avid scrapbooker I'd have to say that I care more for scrapbook pages, but I do love looking at cards and 3d items too. Love your work!

Denise said...

I would love to see more recipes, or tutorials, so I can make up some cards with my own flare! I love the fold out cards too, so would like to see how to do those. I am new, so step by step is best. Thanks, love all the info. Denise

Anonymous said...

I would say scrapbook pages but I know that they are not your favorite. I like to see anything that you do since they are all very cute. Thanks again for all the time you spend. Cheryl

Gina Wrona said...

Hi, I'm a child of God too! I would love to see Penny Black stamps used on cards (noticed some other commenters also voiced this request). Other than that just cards & more cards! : )

Mary Campbell said...

More SU cards please.

Anonymous said...

I think the Bella girls are great. I need to get some of them. Thanks. Cheryl B.

Peggy said...

I like to see scrapbooking or mini-albums - I've never tried doing one, but would like to try. Seems overwhelming though! What to buy, where to start?? THANKS!!

Kheila said...

Great blog candy, by the way. I LOVE cards with recipes, both SU and other, but I am a huge SU fan. I would also love to see an assortment of altered items, they are so much fun and I love new ideas.

Tracy said...

Love your blog! I would like to see more cards...Cards using the new mini catalogue stamps!
Thanks~Tracy

I'd also like to see more projects. Since I don't go to SU parties, I learn mostly from blogs and the internet.

*Welcome Home!*

Kheila said...

I love tutorials and projects. I LOVE SU cards and any projects made with their products. But, I am absolutely loving all the Bella cards I have seen lately. I am enjoying your blog.
