Today is the day...

Good Friday morning everyone! I'm so excited to be here with you guys this morning! First I want to show you my card for today and then...onto the blog candy!

This card is made primarily with Basic Grey Lemonade patterned paper. It also uses the Lemonade Woolies and buttons. All of these wonderful items can be purchased at limeLIGHT Papercrafts and I've gone ahead and linked you up to each individual item above. Go get the goods now! Don't forget that Mandy always has wonderful sales! The one I like the most right now is that she has Pink Cat Studios stamps on sale at 30% off!

So I know you aren't really here for the card (but isn't it cute?) so onto the blog candies! First up...where am I going for my 40th birthday trip. I've give you some hints this week and some of you think you have it figured out. I'm just wondering did you figure out exactly where it is? Your last clue would be...this place is HUGE compared to its sister destination and we have to travel further to get to it than we would its sister. Hopefully that makes sense and that you've guessed our destination. Leave your guess of where, exactly, we are headed here before 7 p.m. tonight and I'll be picking a winner from all the correct guesses to be posted late tonight! (I just realized we'll be leaving the house around 4 p.m. for the evening so I can't post when I previously said I would) What do you win? That wonderful package of circle brads from Stampin' Up! which in and of itself is a clue!

Now, today is my 1,000 post. That's a lot of post and chattin', huh? For that reason I thought I would put some blog candy up for grabs! I'm thinking you guys might enjoy this pack of blog candy. Instead of including a whole bunch of little things in my blog candy I decided to do three main items that everyone is sure to want. First, is a roll of SU! Certainly Celery twill ribbon. Next, is a bag of Unity Stamps. Awhile back they had a slammin' deal on grab bags and I bought two...of which I've used neither so you benefit! And finally, there are four COPIC markers included. The colors are... Y21, 100, RV11, V09. That is a little collection of basic markers for ya! Yes, they have been used some but they are sure to last you for some time! What do you need to do to win this blog candy? Leave a comment on this post (separate from the birthday comment, so you'll comment twice today) and become a follower of my blog by using the widget at the top of theright column. Please feel free to share this blog candy with your friends! If I get to 100 followers I will ADD 4 more Copic Markers to the envelope before I send it so it! I will draw a winner for this on Sunday night at 7 p.m. and announce the winner on my blog Monday morning!

If you have any questions please contact me via my e-mail button to the left! Have a super Friday everyone!
