Blog Candy!

I know everyone is so busy this time of year, myself included! But if you've got a moment, just leave a comment, any old comment you'd like, to be included in this blog candy drawing. Verve Visual released some great little sentiment sets earlier in the month, and I've got two of them just for you.

Flirty Phrases and Uplifting Phrases
I love the fonts used in these sets, and they're sized perfectly to fit onto just about any card design.
You have until Sunday night, December 30th to leave your comment. I'll pull a name sometime after midnight (Eastern time). Be sure you leave a way for me to contact you. Stop by to visit the other Verve designers as well. I think most of them have give aways too. Here's a list of blogs.

DeniseLynn said...

2 prizes!? Oh I would love winning these. I finally got a little pack of clear stamp (in the $1.00 bin at Michaels) I was so hung up on wood mount - but I'm starting to grow up. Ha ha! (I think I'll always love wood mounts but acrylics are fun too).

Hope your Christmas was extra fun! Now that it's all over, we're sick (thw whole family - ick). I think it was the excitement and lack of sleep really. Bummer, but hey at least we were healthy for the big day. *wink*

I have ordered 3 sets from Verve Visual after seeing so many of the blogs from the designers. I am so impressed with my stamp sets, the packaging, the speed of delivery (And I mean they come FAST!), and of course the quality of the stamps themselves. I look forward to the the new style stamps already and these would be so great to have.....think stamps and maybe I'll win. Love your blog and have it saved on my Favs of course.
