So I hit 10,000 hits today!! Thank you to everyone who stops by to say "hi!" Especially in the summer when everyone is busy having fun. It really means a lot to me and I've had so much fun getting to "know" a bunch of great, new stamping friends!

I think blog candy is definitely in order. As most, well probably all, of you know the NEW Stampin Up! Fall~Winter Catalog comes out in under a month!! WoooHoo!! So what better candy to give than a 10$ Stampin Up! gift cetificate to use for what ever new goodies you want in the new catty!!

For candy that yummy all you need to do is......

Leave me a comment on this post telling me(or linking to) your "go to" technique, sketch or color combo. The one you use when you really need to "WOW."

That's it. Not bad for 10$ in new stuff!!

Subscribers, you can post twice, same with any new subscribers.

Good luck everyone!! I'll have the drawing on Monday, July 28.

Thanks for stoppin' by!

One thing I LOVE to use to get ready for workshops is our color wheel!!! I just love using it to get the best color combinations together.


Fabulous candy!! Congrats on all the hits!..I love layers and dimesion!!....I've linked you on my blog!!


Hi Erin,
Congratulations on the hits!!!! yeah!!
Since I love to color in my images, my favorite "go-to" technique is coloring using my Copic Markers. It is very relaxing for me. Sometimes when I'm in need of inspiration,I visit my friends in the UK. It must be the water because the majority are so crafty:)
Have a great weekend and thank you for sharing your candy.

Way to go Erin on your 10000 hits! My favorite go to technique right now is Michelle Zindorf's tutorials. I like the brayer and the clear embossing she does. Really fun! I have you on my Google reader so I can read whenever you post.

Thank you for offering a chance to win $$ for SU!

Things that I "go-to" for a special card are DP, a SCS sketch, and my Cuttlebug.

Here is a card that I posted for a challenge, where I used all three.


Wow, Congrats on all the hits! My "go-to" technique is to use my Cuttlebug embossing folders (and, of course, Stickles!) Thanks for this chance to win sweet candy!
