Thank You Gift


I want to take this time to thank all of you for visiting my blog. I planned on offering this blog candy when I hit 5000 visits, but that happened the day before I left for CHA. So, now I'm finally getting around to it. This is what is included: DCWV Pocket Full of Posies, Hero Arts Clear Design "S" stamps, Maya Road Velvet Flowers, Robins Nest Pebbles, Diamond Stickles, Silver Liquid Pearls, Rain Dots, Pearls, and Ribbon.

I Love to travel and to dream about where I'd like to go. To be entered in for this candy, all you have to do is leave a comment about where your dream vacation would be. My dream vacation is Australia. It's been a dream of mine since I was 10. I still have a koala Gund Bear that my dad gave me that year because that's all I could talk about. He traveled to many places with me throughout High School and College. Hopefully someday I'll get to go and see a koala in person. As well as the Great Barrier Reef, Kangaroos, and my good friend StampOwl (Frances) *grin*. So, now's your chance to tell me your dream vacation!! I will pick a winner by Monday morning. I can't wait to hear about your dream place to visit!!!

Here are a couple of pictures of the new Basicgrey Papers. Sorry for the poor quality. I didn't have my good camera and the lighting was terrible.

Tosh,

My life long dream vacation has been to take a Mediterranean cruise that involves time on land visiting the Acropolis in Greece as well as places in Turkey that are mentioned in the New Testament. Somehow this Med. cruise needs to incorporate Egypt too as well as a stop on Cyprus.

I love your blog!

Kim A.

My other life long dream vacation is to take a trip to Puerto Rico that involves more than the airport since I have spent time in that airport already on the way to Aruba for our honeymoon 18 years ago. Actually my life long dream since 8th grade has been to move to PR to teach.

Cathy J R said...

Wow great blog candy.

My dream would be hawaii then over to Australia.

Mary Anne said...

I am very timid and do not wander very far from home. I think if I had my choice I would like to see clear blue water just once! So something tropical I guess. You are very kind to offer such an amazing prize. Love your blog!

Donna G said...

My dream vacation would be to travel to Hawaii. I have been to some other exotic places, but Hawaii really interests me for its beauty and its history, Wouldn't mind relaxing on the beach, visiting the volcanoes, and relaxing in the lush plush flora.

jackie said...

Sharon in NE said...

Bali looks so incredible. I can almost imagine the balmy sea breezes and the smell of the ocean. (Quite an imagination when its 4 degrees here in Nebraska. )

My dream vacation would be in Zambia, Africa. I have several sponsored children through World Vision who live there and it would be the dream of a lifetime to go there and meet them and their families in person.

Susan G said...

I'd love to visit Hawaii. I think it would be fun to see all the lush greenery and gorgeous flowers. Congratulations and thanks for the chance at the great candy.

Lois Michael said...

I think the best vacation was the inside strait on an Alaskan cruise we took, We went to the Busch Gardens in Victoria....wow they were beautiful, we saw whales breeching in Juneau, A moose in Haines across the bay from Skagway and over all everything was so memorable it definately was the best "dream" vacation I could have imagined.

OMG what delicious blog candy. Thanks so much for the chance at winning. As for dream vacation....it changes by season. Right now I'm dreaming of someplace warm, which would be Hawaii. Summer dreams are Alaska. My ultimate dream is Ireland, Scotland. Okay, Calgon take me away!

Michelle said...

I dream of traveling to a lot of places, including Alaska, Hawaii, and Europe. But one of the places I'd really like to see in my lifetime is Antarctica. The frozen, pristine landscape fascinates me!

Emma O. said...

First, I'd like to say you have beautiful artwork! As for a dream place...Dublin Ireland. My bestfriend's childhood friend(Anna) visited for a month & the pictures she shared along with the stories made me want to go visit her hometown!

Christine said...

My dream vacation would be anywhere warm and tropical,white sand beaches, that clear blue water you see in the travel brochures......and a pretty drink with an umbrella!

Terri S said...

Thank you for the chance at the sweet and generous blog candy as well as the sneak peek at the new Basic Grey.
My dream vacation would be Italy. Just like you, my Dad is my reason for going too. Being his birthplace, I always wanted to go with him but we never got the chance. His wonderful stories made Italy sound so beautiful.

Angie said...

ah, my dream place. I've always wanted to go to Italy, and then tour around Europe. Well, the Air Force is moving us to Italy at the end of the year! Yea!!! Dreams do come true...

A dream vacation would be the Bahamas or somewhere with a nice beach. Just relaxing and getting some sun is my type of vacation.

Congrats on all the hits and the blog candy looks awesome.

Thanks for the BG pics, I hope my LSS gets the Cupcake line- I love me some cupcakes.

cinstampzalot said...

I've always wanted to take a cruise to Alaska! Although I have heard some really neat things about Australia. Wouldn't mind going there either. I can't wait to get my hands on some of the BG Cupcake...I just LOOOOVE it! Thanks for the pics!

Adair said...

I love to travel. One of my dream vacations would be to take my family to Europe. I also want to visit some concentration camps while there. It is a mission I have wanted to do for many years. Thanks for the change to win this fabulous blog giveaway. Congrations on reaching a huge milestone on your wonderful blog!

My dream trip would be to Greece. I would like to take a cruise with my husband and brother and sister-in-law. Growing up, my family always celebrated special occasions with Greek food and Music. We lived in Chicago at the time so "Greek Town" was the place to go. My Dad enjoys Greek cooking and makes a special Greek Easter feast every year. So, I dream of being on the Greek Islands sipping wine, enjoying a breathtaking view and some good food and family!And NO! I am not Greek!

Cammy404 said...

wow, thanks for the opportunity to win such cool stuff!
My dream vacation is to go to Europe and visit: France, England, Spain, and many more wonderful European countries.

Amy Sheffer said...

Wow, what a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance. A place I've always thought I'd like to 'visit', but it might be more like a nightmare to get there, is the summit of Mount Everest. Really! For a dreamy vacation, though, Greece and Italy top my list.

Kathy H said...

I guess I would pick disneyworld. The kids would love it there, Thanks for the chance, Kathy H.

CAKVD said...

FABULOUS giveaway!!! I want to go to Tahiti and stay in one of those little huts that is directly over the ocean and has glass floors. That would be a dream vacation!!
Thanks!

Travel is a dream for me, too. I'd love to go to Ireland and Scotland - I'd love to see the castles, the countryside, and check up on some ancestors!

sgc said...

My dream vacation would be to any place that has a ginormous stamp store that is having a 50% off sale. Honestly, my dream vacation would be to Italy because it is my favorite place (so far!) Loved the photos of the new Basic Grey.

Harriet (scs hskelly) said...

I've always wanted to go to Israel and Greece, Australia and New Zealand! But just about anywhere outside of the US would be great!!

Hawaii - the beach, surf and sufers... congratulations on your 5,000 hits!

denise said...

Congratulations! Great Blog candy too! Love your inspiration!

Having lived in Alaska almost my whole life, I would choose somewhere warm but not too hot. So I would like to live in Hawaii.

Keep up the good work!

Great blog candy!! My dream is for my DH and I to go to Portugal with our kids. He is from Portugal and hasn't been since he was in school. Would love to go to the monestaries and the beaches. I would also love to see Egypt and Dubai.

Well, I used to think mine was NYC...until...we MOVED here...lol Sooo, after 3 years of excess noise, dirty air, sirens blaring...I would have to say, a quite and private island in Figi sounds FANTASTIC!!! Nothing like putting your feet up at the beach, listening to the waves hit the shoreline, and drinking a Mai Tai:)

Mercy said...

my dream vacation would have to be a trip to capri.....love the mediterranean islands! sunshine, beaches, wonderful food....my idea of heaven!

thanks for the shot at some sweet blog candy....keep up the awesome work!

Til said...

My dream vacation would be to go to Italy to see where my parents were raised. My dad had a hard life and he told us many stories, some were pretty funny too, but he passed away before he could go back to his homeland...i would like to go in his honor.

Great blog! Putting it in my bookmarks!

Julie Talford said...

I would love to go to Europe or Italy someplace on the ocean...any place scenic over there. I love Mexico but have been there several times. Keep up your great work...love it.

Carrie said...

My dream vacation is pretty simple. I would love to go anywhere that includes rubber stamping or scrapbooking. A cruise to a CHA would be a dream come true.

Annelies said...

I also like traveling a lot, mostly I stay in Europe. My dream vacation is to go to black Africa. I've had the luck to go to Uganda 3 years ago and I really want to go back for a fantastic combination of safari, great nature and nice people.

Aunt T said...

My dream vacation would be a famiily trip to Ireland, Scotland, & Wales. I've been to Ireland with DH once but to visit with our sons and their gf's would be a dream trip for me! (Maybe I'm a little envious as DS#1 and his gf are leaving for Ireland today)!

I love your blog BTW!

stampingbalou said...

Thank you so much for spending such a gordeous and generous price as your blog candy. I found your blog about a recommendation of Sandy and she is absolutely right: you´re a real artist... Your cards are really awesome. So, you asked for the places about I am dreaming to be for vacation. Well, I´m coming from Germany and for sure there will be so many places where I would like to go, but I really love being in the Netherlands. I love the people, love the sea and the pure, cold air, I love the little things to eat there (poffertjes *yummie*) and I love my children running around at the beach building sand castles... Thanks for the chance to win your goodies and one thing will be for sure: I will visit your blog again... ;o)

andrea said...

Congrats on your blog reaching your goal! I enjoy your stamping style. My dream vacation would be in Scotland staying in a castle on a moor with my hubby and spending out time in the village with the locals. Weird I know but it's something I've always wanted to do.

Nina B said...

Having grown up in Asia, educated in the US and am now a missionary to Europe, I've been blessed to be able to travel a lot. However, there is one place I've never been that I would like to visit someday - Africa. You do beautiful work. Thank you for inspiring this American living so far away from home (wherever that is :-)).

Love travelling but my dream place would be likely Italy.

I would love to go to Ireland. My family is from there and I have always dreamed of visiting. I got married on St. Patrick's Day and we were going to honeymoon in Ireland. We ended up finding a house that we loved, but was over our spending limit. We opted out of the honeymoon and went for the house. While I think it was a wise decision, sometimes I regret it.

I'd love to go to Ireland. Thanks for the chance to win the great prize.
