Sweet Surprises

Welcome to my other blog. If you did not come from my better maintained blog, you might have missed another chance to win blog candy so go back there and follow the steps to enter. Comments are open there until noon EDT on Wednesday, May 30. Now on to my recent card…

As I mentioned earlier, I became a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant in March 2012. This is my announcement party. They have a great card kit, My Originals® Sweet Surprises, for those times that you want to give a handmade card, but are a little short on time or if you are a new card maker and need a little help getting some cards completed.

The Project Inspirations 2012 Spring/Summer Idea Book: My Originals® Sweet Surprises Card Kit video will give you an idea of what this kit contains:

I made this card with the My Originals® Sweet Surprises Card Kit. The card is very similar to what you would get if you made a card straight from the kit but I added some sparkle by adding glitter glue and some gems.

Items used:
My Originals® Sweet Surprises Card Kit (Z1731)

Bonding Memories® Glue Pen (Z553)

Stardust Glitz™ Glitter Gel (Z1313)

Clear Sparkles (Z1104)

I planned to use the Stardust Glitz™ Glitter Gel, but I could not because I forgot to order it. I substituted Ranger Crystal Stickles. I wish I had remembered my Liquid Glass (Z679) because I think that would have been a very nice addition instead of the Crystal Stickles. I’ll try to make another card using Liquid Glass later this evening and share photos mid-week; tomorrow is a busy day going to a Memorial Day parade and celebrating my niece Mollie’s 17th birthday.

On this blog post there are two chances to win blog candy. To enter for the first set of candy, leave a comment on this post (one comment per person please) by midnight EDT on Wednesday, June 6. For this prize you do not need to make any purchase and it is open to anyone in the USA or Canada. I will ship to any address in the USA or Canada that the USPS or Canada Post will deliver to. Names will be put into a hat and one winner will be drawn. The winner’s name will be posted here by 1pm EDT on Friday, June 8 (or earlier if possible).

Unfortunately my second blog candy is limited to those in the USA because the consultant Terms & Conditions I agreed to read “…CTMH Consultant has the right to sell CTMH products and recruit new Consultants anywhere in the U.S.A., but not outside the U.S.A….” Anyone that places an order (any amount) from the OpenHouse link on my Online Shopping Site by midnight EDT on Wednesday, June 6 will have their name put into a hat and one winner will be drawn. The winner’s name will be posted here by 1pm EDT on Friday, June 8 (or earlier if possible).

For those that are placing an order…if you order by midnight on May 31, the Dotty For You and May 2012 Stamp of the Month: Friendship Bouquet (S1205) promotions will still be active. I love the May 2012 stamps; I should receive mine anyday. If you order on or after June 1, the Stampaganza Time and June 2012 Stamp of the Month: Life is Tweet (S1206) promotions will be active. I cannot wait to get the June 2012 stamps.

If you find time zone conversion confusing, please see my post that contains a Time Zone “Cheat Sheet”.

Some additional fine print. The blog candy is not sponsored by any manufacturer, retail or social media outlet. I am not going to tell you what the blog candy is as I want you to be surprised. Hopefully pleasantly. 🙂
