~Blog Candy Extraordinaire~

I am doing a Blog Candy Extraordinaire to celebrate hitting 5000 hits in approx 1 month. I am so happy at how well things kind of just flurished. We have also sold aprox 2 ribbon holders a week since posting them (my husband has been a busy man).

This pen is not just any pink muti colored pen. There is a lot of detail that goes into making these and they take days to make. Each piece of wood that is used is cut and prepared by hand specially to bring out the detailing in the wood grain. If you
click here you can see a burp I found with some pictures giving you a small glimpse at the craftsmanship that goes into making these beauties. I chose the one with pink so your husbands/boyfriends/brother's/dad's don't try to claim it...lol.

I am going to leave this open for 7 days. The value of this custom made pen is appox $68 USD.
Now how to have a chance at making it yours...
What I really want is for you to browse my blog and if you like what you see come back...SO...
1. Is my stamping space neat or messy?
2. What colors is my first Bella card?
3. Who made my custom banner?
4.What was the missing ingredient from my brownie recipe ? {lol, hope you caught it before you made it}
5.Who won my last blog candy?
Last of all...Tell a friend/post it on your blog (sharing is a good thing and brings warm fuzzies even if you don't win)
I will keep this at the top of my blog till the draw date (7 days) and will put comments on approval till the draw is over, then will post for everyone to see...good luck and thank you!

Your room is messy, but boy! would I ever love to have it.
Your first bella card was purple and the bellas were blue and pink.
You were the talented person to do your custom banner.
You left off 2 cups of sugar in your brownie recipe. LOL!!!
