Manly Monday: Thank You for Caring and Blog Candy

Thank You for Caring3

To start the week off on today’s Manly Monday… I am giving away  6″ x 12″ inch 2013 Spring Designer Series Paper that I found while making room for my 2014-2015 Catalog product pre-order.  See the paper below.

You can win the designer series paper by answering any one of the three questions below:

  1. Leave a comment below and tell me if you would like a paper copy of the New 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog for FREE?
  2. If you do not have a demonstrator and want one make sure I have your mailing address here.
  3. If neither apply to you… leave a comment and tell me if you have heard of the Blendabilities Alochol-based markers by Stampin’ Up!?

Thank You for Caring2 This card is a result of a friend asking if he could place an order of ‘Thank You’ cards to send to those caring people who attended his dad’s funeral a few weeks ago.  Each time friends ask for cards they must give me FULL creative rights.  All I ask are for choice of color(s).

Jeff asked for a blue/green color and in my mind when these two colors together result in Bermuda Bay.  I wrapped up all seven cards in a clear box for him and I hope he likes it. =)

Thank You for Caring

  1. Good Morning Maggie – Thanks for the opportunity to win blog candy (dsp). I am responding to your third question regarding Stampin Up’s new Blendabilities line of alcohol markers. I have heard bits and pieces about them and can’t wait to have some hands on experiences with my personal demonstrator and to see all of the online samples, tutorials, and tips from great SU Artists like you.

  2. I would love to win your sweet blog candy! how sweet of you…I have not heard about the alcohol-based markers. This masculine card is great!

  3. First, I love your cards for Jeff! Simple, but so pretty! I read your blog every day for the great ideas! Second, I cant wait to get my free copy of the catalog from my demo! And lastly, I cant wait to try the blendabilities!

  4. Great card Maggie. I must get this woodgrain background. I love everything I see that is made with it!!

  5. Hi Maggie.

    I love that blog candy. What a fun treat!
    Great card. I haven’t purchased the Hardwood stamp yet, but everytime I see a great card like yours made with it I think I should. Thanks for the chance to win the blog candy! You’re the best!

  6. You are a great bow tier Maggie. I ended up buying Kerry’s bow maker. Sure helps on the arthritic fingers.
    Yes – I get my blendabilities this Wed and can’t wait to try them!
