Blog Candy Coming up!!

Well, things are moving along faster than I thought.  When I posted yesterday, I noticed I was several hundred away from reaching the 100,000 visitor mark.  Wow!!! You all do me an honor for so many to visit my blog in the short period of time I have had it, so I thought I'd offer some blog candy. Well, I thought I had several days and could decide on what to offer, photograph it, and post on some of my groups that I'd be giving blog candy, etc.  I log on today and see I'm less that 200 away from that 100,000 mark.  So if you trust me to send you some GOOD blog candy, I'm offering it now!!  Everyone who leaves a comment between now and when I hit 100,000 visits, will be entered into a drawing for the blog candy!  Just leave a comment, and your email address.  I'll contact you if you win to see where to mail the candy, should be you be the winner!  Please know that I very much appreciate the honor of your visits each time you stop in!!

Today I thought I'd share another card that I made recently.  This one used Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive and Pacific Point.  For the three colors of stripes (which are from the Brights Pattern Stack) cut three pieces  3.5” x 1.25”  Cut the three backgrounds for them from solid cardstock,  3.75” x 1.5”.  The center Razzleberry is cut 3.5" x 3", it's layer of Pacific Point is  3.25" x 2.75" and the center white is 3" x 2.5". 
 We don't have a punch that will reach in far enough to punch for the ribbon, so I punched two small 1/8" circle holes as far apart as my ribbon is wide and clipped between them with my scissors.  I like how the two colors of ribbons looks on this one, too, don't you?
I got this layout from Anne Marie Hile.  (She's another Schnauzer owner and I LOVE her work).  See her blog  here and look for her March 1 entry.  Our cards are different and I'm not sure our dimensions are the same but that's where I saw the layout.

I'm so glad you stopped in today!! Don't forget to leave a comment with your email address, to be entered into the blog candy drawing!  Smiles, Laura
