Birthday Treats For YOU

I have some exciting news and a giveaway but you'll have to wait until the end of the post to read it. So I'll make it quick.
This project didn't really turn out as I envisioned it. I have the weird shape of the jar to thank for that. But I still like and it would still be super cute filled with yummy treats for a friend or family member.

The stamp set I used is Lots of Bots-a new one in the catalog. I didn't buy this set but I borrowed it from my upline Amber, HI Amber!!! Before I gave the set back to her I stamped the little robot guy over and over so that I'd have lots of robots to play with for other projects.
Isn't he cute-'Happy Birthday Human' so cute!

This is what the jar looked like before I covered it. After VBS last week we had a bunch of these jars left over. We made trail mix for a snack for the kids and because there are peanut allergies, we used sunflower seeds instead of peanuts. So I actually have a bunch of these jars and will make more projects with them.
Exciting news coming...
Ok, here's my exciting news! My blog has hit the 50,000 hit mark, (or is certainly very close. When I typed this I was less than 50 hits away!) I can't believe that! I've so enjoyed doing my blog! And I'm so pleased that people come to it! So to thank you I'm giving stuff away!!!! I know that when blogs give stuff away they call it blog c*ndy. But I want people who actually come to my blog to win this, so I'm not advertising it as blog c*ndy because I don't want people to just google it and then enter and win. I think YOU should be rewared! So what do you win?! Well in honor of 50,000 hits I'm giving away 5 of my FAVORITE things. Sorry the picture is so bad, I took it when the sun was glaring into my stamp room. Probably should have taken it another time of day but I wasn't sure I would have another time of day free to take a picture. So anyway the prize includes
  • A stamp set-of course one of my favorite things-This one is actually a SAB one from last season-Polka Dot Punches
  • Ribbon-LOVE Ribbon. This one is the So Saffron ribbon also from SAB.
  • Dimensionals-Use them all the time. I really wish that SU would sell them in bulk to demos-instead of 3 sheets to a pack maybe like 10 or 20 sheets. Oh well maybe someday!
  • 2-way Glue. A MUST if you make as many little punched creatures as I do. LOVE LOVE LOVE 2-way glue!
  • And last but certainly not least--Cardstock! What would paper crafting be without cardstock. So for this prize I've include 2 sheets of each of the new In Colors!
Ok so how do you win? Simply leave a comment on this post telling me one or some of your favorite SU stuff. Stamp sets or accessories-whatever you love! You have until Monday July 6 to enter. I'll post the winner on July 7 before my Tutorial. Only one entry per person please! Good Luck and Thank YOU!!
Thanks for looking and I'll see you tomorrow!!!

Everything, I just cannot get enough. I really like that the ink, paper and markers all coordinate and I love they Stampin up and their demonstrators give such great samples to get inspiration from.

Hi Ruth - congratulations on your 50,000 hits - they are so well deserved. My favorite Stampin' Up product is the set 'Lovely as a Tree' - which I do not have, but I love the great range of cards so many people are able to produce with that lovely set.

Congrats, Ruth on your 50,000 hits! That's awesome! My favorite SU stuff would have to be the punches. So much you can do with those! Next would probably be, of all things, thw 2 way glue. It works the best of any I've found. Thanks for sharing with us. Hope you have a happy and blessed weekend!
