I received a big, mysterious envelope in the mail today and inside was a copy of Crafts 'n Things magazine. I wondered why, since I don't subscribe, so I flipped through it and lo and behold there was a card I sent in to Rubber Stamper a LONG time ago! This one:

The main image is from OnyxXpressions and the rectangle is an old SU stamp. I love this card and was surprised to see it in there - happily so!

I also won this blog candy from Robyn at The Pink Stamper and it came in the mail today as well. Thanks, Robyn!

I received my Pay It Forward candy from Kim at Impress Yourself the other day. She sent a wonderful little package with a Studio G clear stamp set, some metal charm embellishments and a tin with lots of pretty little flowers - thank you, Kim! I have sent my PIF candy out to the three winners and you all should be receiving it soon. It may take a little longer to NZ and Oz, though.

My new Cuttlebug embossing folders came yesterday and they are awesome. I am going to try this technique on a card tomorrow. I saw this card on Splitcoast last night - what a totally cool idea! Sue Nelson rocks!

I am almost afraid to see what new cool stuff they are showing at CHA. I did add the SCS@CHA blog to my Google Reader - I am a glutton for punishment.

It's past my bedtime and my eyes are getting tired so I will say goodnight all! Oh, one more thing....I see that my hits are nearing 2000 and I will be posting some Blog Yummies when it does, so keep an eye out! Sleep well.
