Birthday Blog Candy!

Hello friends! It's been a fun year so far... I've passed my 2-year bloggy anniversary (March; although my first year+ is kind of sparse in the posting department); been lucky to be on design teams with fabby ladies; and watch my own card-making style evolve into something I really love. I've "met" countless wonderful people and I'm amazed every day to see your projects. I am inspired by *you* each and every day!

Since I'm looking at another candle on my cake this month, I thought I'd give *you* the presents. I know, I know, all the presents should be coming my way, right? Hahaha! Maybe I'm having a senior moment, then. (Am I allowed to blame things on "senior moments" at fabulous 42?)

Here is what I offer to you:
Blog Candy Contents
  • Magnolia Ink Magazine, Fairytale Edition
  • Magnolia Fairytale Tilda stamp
  • Martha Stewart Heart Punch
  • Prima Flutter Vine
  • Yards and yards of lace (thanks to Grandma)
  • Tons of mulberry flowers
  • Assorted embellishments
Here's how you can become eligible - Please follow these requests!
  • Post my candy on your blog - either in a post, on a sidebar or on a blog candy page (like mine, above)
  • Link your Inlinkz entry below to your blog candy post or blog candy page *or* your main page if you placed my candy on your sidebar
  • Look through my 2010 archives and tell me a card you really like (see sample entry at #1 below).
  • Become a follower *only* if you want to keep up with me. (I would rather have real follower "friends" who like what I do and want to share what *they* do, too. I'm quirky like that! *grin*)
  • Enter by May 31 at 11:59PM
So that's it. Pretty simple! This is open worldwide to everyone with blogs. I want to see you, too!

Hey Susan,

just wanted to say.. I'm also 'age-old' (will turn 42 in June *lol*)

So... 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' and keep up your wonderful work! I really love everything you create (seriously!!!) That's the reason why I'm a follower already *smile*

Have a great birthday month :)

{hugs} Sylvia

paola said...

OH to be 42 again, but i can still relate, i am hating getting ever closer to the big 50.Trying to avoid the clock ticking away at time, trying to deny the wrinkles and memory slips, ha ha
Enjoy whatever age we are girls!
P.S i love visiting, and even when i am not commenting i get you in my google reader and love reading your blog

Elise said...

Big Hugs To You,

Happy Blogaversery!!! Thx for the chance to win this yummy candy! I'm already a follower of your fab blog. My fav card would have to be Easter Greeting. It was tough picking just one because all your cards are sooo beautiful.


Patricia Mae said...

Susan Happy Birthday, someone is going to get an awesome blog candy. I have posted your candy to my side bar. It's been a pleasure getting to know you thru the design teams and our little chats that you have helped me with. Age is only a number and Im right there behind you.

Happy Birthday, etsygreetings pal!

I'm following your rockin blog!

Sassy Scrapper said...

Ok Sue I am soo sooo sorry but I could not make a decision on just one. I have a tie Luck O The Irish and Let's Have a Drink. I would have to toss a quarter for a final decision but even then it would still be tied. Hee Hee

Regina said...

Hi Susan!!! Your work is so beautiful and I ove all them. But... the Mo´s digital stamps is one of my favourites that´s why I loved your Home for the Holidays!!

D said...

You make fabulous cards babe. I'm make pretty decent layout, but I'm horrible at cards!!! Yours are awesome. My favorite is Making time for yourself w/ the glass of wine image, though I laughed out loud at your sultry irish women!

PlumTuckered's Paper Plays said...

Happy Birthday and Happy Blogaversary!
I'm turning 51 this month and dreading it...I remember my 40's..oh I loved those years, before every part of me started to fall apart LOL

Your cards are just gorgeous and it was really hard for me to pick a favorite between your Tilda Easter Card and your Home for the Holidays card...Home for the holidays won out..I love anything to do with Christmas!


Deb said...
