pasiakowa said...

Wow, so many hits in so little time! :) Congratulations!
And thank you for this wonderful candy! :)

What I like about stamping is that you can create something unique each time - especially when using different inks and embossing powders :)
I love stamps very much because of that :) I also have designed two of my own you can see here ( a little bit like Tim Holtz's ones ;) ). Almost nothing can stop me to buy new stamps when I'm 'falling in love' ;)

All the best to you!

Ay, forgot ;) Linked you here

Lynne in NI said...

Your blog is fab - I love nipping over to crafty blogs as I get so much inspiration! (though by the time I've looked at the blogs and got the inspiration, there's not much time for the 'making'!!)

Pam's Pride said...

I also added a blurb about your giveaway on my blog, in the same post.

StampinCathy said...

WoW! Congrats on 5K in such a short time! I love to surf blog to find inspiration and new techniques. Thanks for a chance at this AWESOME celebration candy.

pasiakowa said...

And I forgot to mention, but i think it's obvious ;) - looking at crafting blogs is really inspiring - finding new ways of using the materials I have in home and wouldn't think that it could be done that way :) Sometimes it's the design, sometimes the technique :) It's great to explore something new on and on :)

Bunny B said...
