Birthday Candy

Happy Friday friends.  Whew, the weekend is here peeps!  Are you as excited as I am?  I love the 4th of July celebrations ... the cookouts, the fireworks.  We usually celebrate the 4th of July at our little place on beautiful Lake Cumberland.  But hubby is still kind of recuperating from his surgery so we're staying home this holiday weekend.  I hope you all have some fabulous plans for this long weekend :)

So, my birthday is later this month.  No, I'm not telling you which birthday it is.  And those of you that know better zip those lips lol!  Anyway, I have a small blog candy to give away to someone in celebration of my birthday. 



There's Snuggle Anya and Oh Boy Ian (The Greeting Farm), 2 packages of pearls, and 12 yards of twine in assorted colors.  Also included in the candy is a $10 gift certificate for Meljen's Designs digi stamps!   

If you're interested in the candy, here's what you need to do:

     -  I would love it if you became a follower, but only if you enjoy visiting my blog

     -  Post a picture of my little candy on your blog with a link back here

     -  Leave a comment below

Pretty easy, huh?  The candy closes at midnight EST on July 27 and I'll announce the winner on July 28.

Thank you for stopping by.  I always enjoy reading your sweet comments.  I hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!

  57. First, let me say I LOVE the name of your blog! LOVE IT! Second, thanks for the chance to win your yummy candy. I admit, I struggle a bit about entering contests like this when I've not previously been a follower, because I can certainly understand why you don't want random people winning your candy. But, I swear, blog candy contests are how I have found some of my favorite inspiration, and your blog is no exception. So, I have posted a pic of your candy on my blog at: http://paperluvver.blogspot.com/. I have also, gladly, become a follower. Again, thanks so much, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
