Valentine - Surprise Blog Candy for my International Followers

Hi Again. I'm back with another Valentine card and a little surprise Blog Candy. When Random Generator for the blog candy was run earlier in the day, all the winners were USA residents. I felt that  all my lovely international followers were being a bit slighted. Decided that I would do another RG and select the first International follower whose name matched a number. That sweet follower will be thanked with an LOTV voucher in the amount of $35...which is approximately the cost of each of the earlier prizes. I have used LOTV before to send a voucher, so I know that company will work with my pay pal account and we can get the money conversion done properly....And I think all of us love the LOTV products.

First here's another {sorry!} Valentine card. Remember I still have to do some for my own use - so bear with me. This is another of the ones I did for DD.


-PB Hot Pants, Lil Inker Stitched Rectangle (or maybe it was MFT Pierced rectangle, gosh I forget!)

- S/B elegant ovals mat

- Momenta Arrows die cut from background paper created by spraying Dylusions over a piece of lace onto white cardstock. It was a bit too bright for my liking, so used it to die cut.

- other papers from Paper Studio 6x6 Love Struck pack

- VOS sticker hearts. Yay, that's it!

Congratulations to:

#254 - Kate of I Love Socks and Cards

The same rules as earlier: Contact me by 6:00PM EST on 1-25-15 and provide mailing address and also your email address please. (only I will see your personal data). I will contact LOTV and arrange for the voucher to be mailed directly to you. (at least this is the way LOTV handled it for me in the past..I hope they still do it that way.)

I do appreciate ALL of my lovely blog followers and it makes me happy to be able to send a little gift along to say so! I do so enjoy getting to know people from other parts of the world, learn about their lives and where they live...in places I shall probably never have the pleasure to see. I always love it when pictures are shared showing places that you visit. TTFN (TaTa for now. I watch too many British series methinks!). Big Hugs.

What striking colours Mary. And a really effective design as well with the arrow and coordinating DP's and of course the sweet Penny Black hedgie.

Not made a single Valentines card as yet, but need to get a shift on as I know the family will be plundering my baskets of cards before long.

Hope you have a good weekend.

So cute Mary! Love the little image (those undies are adorable!). Great little stitched rectangle (or is it pierced???) I love it whichever. And you've given me an idea now anyway - if it isn't pierced - it can be!

Kim Heggins said...

Mary, this is just too darn cute. I love your sweet little critter and those adorable boxers with that bright red hearts. So so sweet.
