GET READY TO VOTE FOR BLOG CANDY!!!

Hello to all my friends out there!!!  YOOOU-WHOOOOO!  I hope all is well and that everyone who's been bombarded with snow in their part of the world is tucked away somewhere cozy, and not having to deal with it.  We're just starting to get ours now, but they've estimated it should only be 10-12 inches -- which is a blessing compared to what some of you got (20" to 27" - wow!).

And, again, welcome to my new followers!  I hope your visits are always enjoyable.  Because ALL of you have made it possible to help me as I grow my blog into a big girl, I will giving out blog candy when I reach 100 followers.  It's been such a pleasure sharing my crafts with you and watching the numbers grow!

In an earlier post, I promised when I reached 100 followers I'd have blog candy again and it's sooooo close now to that 100 that I think it's time to roll -- don't you?!.  I also mentioned that you'd be doing the voting, so the way this will go is that as of right now, I'm beginning a list of all my followers and I'll continue to do so until I reach 100.  I'll then take that list and jumble the names so they won't be in the same order as noted on my blog and change the names to numbers from 1 - 100; and here's where you come in, you'll pick a number and leave the number you selected under the blog candy posting/picture.The number with the most votes wins the blog candy!  In the event the numbers are consistent, 1 - 100, with no duplications, the draw will be random.  Now you don't know what your number will be so... get on your mark; get ready; set to vote!

RULES:  1) Must be a follower,  2) must have name and/or blogspot listed to your comment vote as you are noted/identified on the list of followers, 3) only one vote per follower, please).

Once I've reached 100 followers I will announce the deadline date for the last vote entry, and the winner will be announced the following day after all votes are counted.  So, let all your blogging friends and everybody else know, and let's get this thing going!!!

Here's the candy:
Mother's Day 2010 Cartridge, Paper, Ribbons, Stickles, Nestibilities, an Impressionability, Stamps, Stickers -- OH MY! 

GOOD LUCK!!!
