Happy Tuesday!!!!!!!!

**WINNERS posted on Sunday August 22**
Would you like to win this Maggie stamp and flowers above?
Please read on if you do.

It's Tuesday and I don't have a card to share today but have a bit of exciting news to share, an award and then a little fun for you my readers.

First of all. I am jumping up and down with excitement!! Why, did you say?? Well, I will be starting on the *NEW* Elisabeth Bell Digi DT. JUMPING UP and DOWN.... LOL.... Oh to work with all of those beautiful little images. Just makes my hand itch to get my copics out and my heart very happy. I love EB images and Maggies too!! Now I get to do them both!!!!! I think I am in heaven!! Yes in heaven!! The *NEW* EB DIGI Blog will be up and running very soon. Yay!!!!!!! Now I know everyone loves EB images so I know you will all be there. I will keep you up to speed as things move forward.
I am looking forward to working with Elisabeth! She is such a sweetheart and such a talent!!!
Thanks to all of you that have already stopped with congrat.s I means a lot to me.
Okay, I will jump down off of my high now and tell you about the award I received from my dear friend Di.
It was a great surprise also.

Thank you so much Di for thinking of me!!! You are a true sweetheart!


1. Michelle..... A wonderful friend that is so honest and talented.
2. Kat.....Always stops by and lifts me up with her nice comments!
3. Gry-Heidi ...One of the sweetest kind hearted women. One of the first true blogging friends. Beautiful Vintage artist.
4. Fiona ... A very sweet person who never forgets to leave me a GREAT comment.
5. Christine...... A funny kind of girl that really keeps me hopping on the blog. She is one that pushes me to be better. Did you know that dear? LOL....

Well its was hard just picking 5 as there are many many more out there that I could choose.
Okay now for the fun!!
It is going to be interesting to see just how many of you stuck with me with this long post. LOL...

Yesterday I posted the bottle of M&M's on my blog for the Manolia-Licious Birthday Blog hop and today I decided to post it again and play a little game.

How many M&M's do you think is in that jar?
yes, I counted them all!! LOL..

The first person to guess the right answer will win a New Magnolia stamp and the yummy flowers posted at the top of my blog. Diana doesn't have her at the Magnolia-licious Store that I could find. So she must be out of stock right now. So I couldn't find the name of this little cutie. I don't remember the name. sorry......

I will check this post each evening. If no one gets the right answer by this Sunday (August 22) evening I will find the first person that was the closest without going over.
I will ship anywhere so all of my readers can join in the fun.
Have fun!!!
Hugs and thank you for stopping by and sharing some of the fun stuff with me.
