Blog Candy Giveaway

Ok, I am so thrilled to be a Grandma! Addison (see previous post) is so adorable and gives me much "Love and Happiness" that I have to share some "LOVE and HAPPINESS" with you.

Here's how it will work:
Leave a comment with this posting about anything, especially "baby" or "baby & stamping" related. Leave me a link as well if you have some online samples.


We will leave this for one week, and on Friday Feb 29 (leap year too ;) I will make a random drawing and announce the winner.


What will you win? You will receive from me, the "Love and Happiness" rubons shown with this posting. These are great for both Stamping and Scrapbooking as they are acid free and scrapbook safe. The package includes 4 sheets, Black, White, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip...in the images shown. You can use Rub ons on paper and most nonporous surfaces including glass, photos, clipboards, candles and more. (check the photo here for a sample) The only limit will be your imagination.
Feel free to post to your own blog and share this Blog Candy as I am also looking for baby card inspiration...

Congratulations Valerie....
I know just how you feel...I became a "Nonnie" (rhymes with Mommy, our name for grandma) in September...Wow, what an absolutely unexplainable feeling... but isn't it great?! I am thoroughly enjoying my new title! LOL I am sorry that I don't have any links for you...I just sort of do the "baby things" as I am inspired... Enjoy that new grandbaby....

PS I have found the best baby sugar to be hidden right behind their ears...and its REALLY good right after their baths...LOL

Val said...

Congratulations on becoming an Oma, Val! Addison is precious! Ahhh, look at that little finger reaching out. I could hold a new little one all day! :) That's the best part about being a grandma, you get all the cuddling you want and then you get to have a good nights rest! lol :)

Enjoy time they grow up way too fast! I can't believe my daughters are 4 and 6 years old already! Where does the time go?

Have a great night!

congratulations on becoming a grandma. I became Mimi for the first time in March 07. I love it.

Rae said...

Congrats on your new grandbaby! What timing...My son's first grade teacher is pg with her first baby. I am organizing a shower for her from the class. I sent home a piece of 6 x 6 card stock and asked the kids to give Mrs. M some tips to prepare for the new baby. I am going to put it together in a scrapbook and it will be called "Baby Advice from 1st Graders". I read a similar idea on line so I can't take credit for coming up with it all on my own. Thank you.

Congratulations Val!!!! I am about to become a grandma anyday now and I cannot wait!!!!!!!!

Oh my Addison is so sweet. I wish I was an aunt already. But since that just hasn't happened I'll have to be satisfied with new little cousins and 2 cousins.
