My Ever-Growing Spring-A Licious Blog Candy!

Check back on Monday, March 22, for the winner!

It's been a long, cold, SNOWY winter and I am *SO* ready for Spring - warm sun, longer days, colorful flowers, singing birds, blue skies ... aaahhhhh!

We all know that March 20 is the first day of Spring, but it's also my Daddy's birthday, so in honor of both, I'm giving away some Ever-Growing Spring-A-Licious Blog Candy! It's "Ever-Growing" because until March 20, I'll be adding more candy every now & then to the take!!! Now, I'm feeling a little mischievous, so I will just update my sidebar photo and the list on this post when I add something new rather than make a new post - tee-hee-hee!

What's up for grabs:
1 8x8 yummy paper pad called Destination Paradise by Me & My Big Ideas
6 rolls of American Crafts springy ribbon
17 pc. Sandylion "Girl" clear stamp set with lots of CUTE springy images!
1 pack of K&Company Wild Saffron rubons (whoopsie, omitted the first time!)
2 packs of Recollections rhinestone swirls
1 pack of Darice self-stick assorted spring bling
1 pack of Fiskars ZingZ accents
2 packs of White Blossom assorted spring rub-ons
1 pack of Making Memories spring velvet brads
1 Mary Englebright flower chipboard book
1 pack of Recollections pastel flat-back pearls
1 pack of Darice 75-pc. spring chipboard shapes
1 10x13 wooden tray to alter!
More will be added every few days over the next couple weeks!

TO ENTER, all I ask is that you spread the word by adding my candy pic to your sidebar linking back to this post and by leaving a comment on this post with your favorite spring thing. I would be honored if you also choose to become a follower of my blog, but that's totally up to you! And if you don't have a blog, you call still enter by commenting and spreading the word to your crafty friends via email, card making threads, etc. Entries will be open until midnight on March 20, and the winner will be posted on Tuesday, March 22.

So leave a comment with your favorite spring thing (mine is the arrival of the glorious Eastern Blue Birds from their winter vacations!) , spread the word about my Ever-Growing Spring-A-Licious Blog Candy, and be sure to check back to see what other goodies I'll be adding to the take!

YAY FOR SPRING! Good luck!

Oh me first me first!

This is going to sound strange but I love it when the ground starts to smell like worms. I know I know... But that truly means spring to me. Everything is just waking up and moving under there and not long after the flowers start blooming.

Hugs sweet friend - Love you to bits!

Hi Susan!! Happy birthday to your dad =) Thanks for letting us celebrate his birthday (and spring) with us. The thing I love about spring is the flowers (minus my alergies lol) and the birds. I love my walks to the bus stop and listening to the birds in the morning. I'm not a morning person at all so they cheer me up so i'm not as grumpy when I get to work lol. I'm off to post a pic in my side bar now. Keep up the great work and I look forward to following you =)

Probably it is ridiculous - but I like to clean in a case.
I hide far winter clothes, I pull out summer things from "far corner", I try on, I erase... - for me it is weight of pleasure! It is first sign - the SPRING HAS come!!!! Warm!!!
Thanks :)
