Blog Candy 2015


Finally, I took a picture of a blog candy I wanted to share with you, my wonderful readers. I put it together a long time ago. All I needed to do is take a picture.

Okay, here is what I have for you to give away:

– paper pad Story Teller from Crate Paper (size 6×6);

Hello journaling die-cuts from Basic Grey;

Hey You! designer chipboard stickers from Basic Grey;

Do it Yourself cork stickers from American Crafts.

I would really appreciate if you spread a word about this little calorie free treat I have to offer. You don’t need to re-post it on your blog, but if you would like you are more than welcome.

If you are visiting my blog for the first time, please, check my Etsy shop and some goodies I have on my Stamps for Sale Page. Who knows you may find something you was looking for. 🙂

I will leave this post till Thursday and pick a winner on Friday, January 30. Wow, is it almost the end of this month?

Thank you so much for stopping by today!



P.S. This candy is now closed, thank you so much who participated.

Blog Candy 2015

A winner will get a little surprise as well too (something cute) 🙂



Наконец-то у меня на блоге проводится розыгрыш конфетки. Приз очень скромный, но если вы любите делать открытки и создавать альбомчики, то это лакомство (заметьте совершенно никаких калорий, сплошная польза) придется вам по душе. 🙂

Рассказывайте о моей конфетке, делитесь с друзьями в блогомире. Никаких условий о перепосте у меня нет. Но если есть желание, то очень его поддерживаю.

Условия просты, оставляйте комментарий и все!!! Как просто, правда! Конфетка будет размещена до четверга следующей недели, а в пятницу, 30 января, выберу победителя!

Спасибо большое, что пришли ко мне сегодня в гости! Я всегда рада своим гостям. Надеюсь вам у меня понравится и вы сможете приходить ко мне почаще.

С любовью и большой теплотой ко всем вам,


P.S. Розыгрыш конфетки завершился. Всем спасибо за участие.

Blog Candy and more!!!

Hello to all my readers!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Before big holiday, Thanksgiving Day, I wanted to thank you all for inspiring me, for believing in me and for all your wonderful comments! Everything you are giving to me is much appreciated! And I would like to give you a little thank you back.

As I promised before I have a small give away. BLOG CANDY!!!

Blog Candy

Blog Candy

I included my favorite items in it:

1. Two Paper Packs of Designer Paper 6×6

2. One Pack of Stickers from Studio 112

3. One Pack of Vellum Quotes from Studio 112

4. Rubber Stamp Lion Baby from Stampendous

5. A Bag of Various Sequins

I don’t have any rules and obligations. Just leave a comment at the end of this post. I will pick a winner on Wednesday, November 20th.

You are welcome to spread the word about this blog candy. And I would really appreciate if you will like my Facebook page too (only if you would like to).

Thank you again for all you do, for your time, for your comments, for staying with me, and for visiting my crafting space.



P.S. Now to the sad part. I decided to close my Etsy shop at the end of this month. It didn’t turn out the right way for me. You need to be very creative and original to have a success in this direction. It is just something I don’t have. At least I tried. 🙂 Will keep working in developing my skills and maybe one day I will reach a great result. 🙂

Good Luck with blog candy Everybody. And don’t forget about my Stamp Sale stash. Who knows, you may find something in there.

Candy is now closed. Thank you to all who entered this give away. I will post a winner soon.

The hop starts at La-La Land Crafts and if you came from Kathy’s blog, you are in a right direction. Now it’s my turn to introduce to you Sweet Friends Rosie! She is just as sweet as she can be! I enjoyed coloring her, even added some drawing to the image. As you can see I played with the gorgeous MOJO Monday sketch. I also decided to stamp on a ribbon a beautiful sentiment (Amy R. stamp set) – “Your Friendship warms my heart.” Thought it will go well with the design of the card.

My first card is a New Year card. What is the first sign of the coming year? The sound of an opening champagne bottle and lots of bubbles in your glass of this cheerful drink! I followed Mercy’s sketch (MTSC32) once again for the layout of this card.
