No Card - Just a Tiny Piece of Blog Candy

I have no card to share today.  I actually did make a couple quick ones on Wednesday, and I'll probably share them with you later.

I am thrilled to say that my calendars are done for next year.  Yahoo!!  I made twelve of them, but I don't have a home for all of them.  So ... in honor of a couple blogging milestones, I'm going to give one away to a blog reader.  I will top 150,000 blog views  very soon, and I hit (and even passed) 250 subscribers and followers.  I am totally amazed and blown away by that.  Who'd've ever thunk it!  I thank you all very much for that. 

I have thought about blog candy many times, and have never followed through with my thoughts.  But this time, I hope someone might want to win one of my calendars.  All I'm asking is that you leave me a comment.  I'd love it if you'd say where you're from, but even that is not necessary.  Any comment will do - I'd just like to get to "know" you better! :)  I'll pick a random winner on ... how about Tuesday.  That is our 36th wedding anniversary!  So, you have until midnight Tuesday, November 9th to leave a comment on this post.  I'll announce the winner on Wednesday.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Congrats on the milestone!
Since I've been here, I've enjoyed seeing your cards. As someone who loves to work on scrapbooks, I treated myself to a Cricut machine & I've been giving thought to making cards. I should really get that going...

Well, enjoy!
And good luck to whoever wins the calendar!

Lynette, Happy Anniversary to you and your husband. I came to your site a few months ago and really enjoy your cards. You have such a clean and simple style that I really enjoy. I started a blog to post my cards but I am not as aggressive in my card making as of yet. I am so busy trying to redo my mothers scrapbook which is from 1948. The pages were crumbling in my hands as I was trying to remover the pictures and memorabilia. I am trying to get it done before Nov 20th because I would like to share it with my siblings at Thanksgiving. I grew up in a small town north of Pittsburgh, Pa called Beaver and I now live in St.Louis,MO Thanks for posting on your blog, I look forward to all the posts. http://athomewithjoan.blogspot.com/
