CANDY CANDY and more candy!! 
Would you like to winner some non fattening fun kind of candy?
I thought that it would be fun for ALL of my followers today to have a give away!!
I am going to call this little give away
"The cats out of the bag candy" LOL.....
Today I want to share a little bit of a story with you MY READERS/COMMENTERS .. Very few of you know this. That I am going to share today with all of my readers. Really didn't want this out in blog land. But I keep getting emails and such from some of you my readers. I feel that maybe it will help you understand why I don't get to your blog as often as I use to.  So here it goes......
I have been ill since last May and have struggled to get my DT cards done and posted to my blog. I don't post as often has I used to post and as ALL of my readers/comments know I don't get to your blogs and comment like I used to do. :o( This does make me very sad and I want all of you to know it just because I can't do it like I used to do. By the time I do the commenting for the teams that I am on and get my cards done I am out of steam. I am getting better but it's going to be a bit longer still. So with all of that said I have decided to do a Candy Post for MY FOLLOWERS every 2 weeks or so to show you that I do care and that your comments and following me is very much appreciated. REALLY THANK YOU for all of the comments that you do leave me!! I love to read each and everyone of them!!! You all put a huge smile on my face with each and every one of them!! Okay enough of all that kind of talk and lets get onto the candy..... Today I have a big candy that I truly think any cardmaker/scrapbooking makers will love. Today my card is made with blues and browns the candy is all in blues and browns also.
I have..... all things from Lil Davis Designs...
Chipboard Alphabet
Shaped Ribbons
Chipboard Rounders
Glitter Rub ons
Printed Polka Dot Flowers
Canvas Frame
Architect Letter Stickers
Bag of Brown Buttons

Now what do you have to do to win my candy???

1.Be one of my followers

2.Leave me a comment and I will randomly draw the winner on February 10 and post to my blog.

3. Any one of my followers can enter.. I will post ANYWHERE in the world.

That's it!!!!!! Now just how easy is that?!?!?!?! You will need to come back and check on February 10th to see if you are the winner. You will have 3 days to get hold of me with the email button on my side bar. To collect the winnings. I will post new candy on that day also


Thanks for supporting my Little Pieces of ART!!
