Tomorrow is the launch of a new challenge on the Paper Players Blog!  I am excited about this and absolutely tickled pink that I have 200 followers!  Thank you so much to everyone who stops by my blog to visit me and thank you to my blogging friends for supporting the Paper Players!
Here is a sneak peak of my card for tomorrow's Paper Players Challenge:

This month marks my TWO year anniversary as a blogger and I would like to offer a chance to win some sweet candy to all my followers and new visitors alike!  I just hit 200 followers!  Wow!  Thank you!! 

The Candy:
·         20 sheets of 6x6 designer paper
·         Brand new roll of Pumpkin Pie Striped Ribbon
·         A mini jar filled with different kinds of brads
·         Self-Adhesive Jewels
·         A relaxing bubble bath! (Why not?)
In order to have your name entered into the Blog Candy Draw...please:
  1. Become a follower (if you already are one step ahead :D)
  2. Tell me what kind of challenges you like the best; sketch, colours, themes, etc...
I will draw one name on Sunday, March 27th and announce it on my next Paper Players Design Team Post! 
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. i like sketches that have a theme. makes it easier to narrow down stamp to use. thanks for the chance to win your blog candy.

  2. I like sketches. It can be nice to have a theme, as Jan says, to help with stamp decisions, but sometimes I want the freedom to just choose a set on my own based on my personal card making needs.

  3. I have yet to enter a challenge. That was my New Years Res. But I have seen many challenges and I think I would be drawn to one that was a color challenge. I think for a newbie that would be easier than others. Thanks for a chance to win some great candy.


  4. I really like colour challenges as I feel I tend to stick with my favourite combos, these challenges take me out of my comfort zone and I know the colours will work together well.
    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win great blog candy!

  5. Congratulations on 2 years of blogging and 200 followers!! Wow, what a milestone!
    I prefer sketch challenges but a very close 2nd would be colour challenges.

  6. I think I prefer color challenges. Thanks for sharing your creations and giving away blog candy!

  7. Inspiration or Sketch challenges are my favorite ... congrats on 2 years of blogging.

  8. Great giveaway! I'm not entering but I have listed your candy on Blog Candy Lists!

    Thanks! Monica

  9. I think I like photo inspiration challenges the best. Ie. showing a pic of a candy bar and see how others get inspired.. either by color or theme, etc. It's fun to see what others come up with!

  10. Love your blog; I follow all the Paper Players because you guys rock!

    I like sketch challenges the best. I just find them easier to work with; I can always figure out a stamp and embellishments that will fit in well with the design.

  11. Congrats on your 2 year blogaversary!! I like to work with the freedom of color pictures best!! That way I can design my card any way I want to! I also like themes....birthday cards, weddings, etc. That makes it easy for me to narrow my thoughts down to specific stamp sets! Thanks for the chance to win some candy!!

  12. I am a follower via Google Reader - found you through The Paper Players. :) As for me - I love sketches and color challenges. I'm not too big on themes since I have a hard time working my mind around themes (for now!). LOL

  13. I like both the sketches and the color challenges - can't decide which I like more. I always like to see what you've created from the sketches! Thanks for all the inspiration and the chance to win your blog candy!!

  14. Just found your blog and love all your projects! I prefer color challenges. Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. Wow 200 followers that's great, Congratulations.
    It's hard to name just one favorite challenge, I guess first choice would be a sketch, then color as a close second.
    Thanks for offering some great blog candy.

  16. I tend to be most inspired by sketches! I find that "pulling it all together" is the hardest thing for me to do. Thanks for the opportunity and can't wait to see how everything unfolds!

  17. Sketches are my favorite, especially when they have the size of each piece included. New stamper...thanks for the opportunity to win the candy.

  18. How fun Lesley!! Sign me up, lol!

    I love sketches and color challenges best. Too hard to just pick one!! Oh, and I like new technique challenges too!

    Happy Blogiversary!!!!

  19. I am already a follower. I have not done any challenges so I am not quite sure how to answer. Maybe I would try a theme one eventually. Hard to say at this point, I feel like such a novice.
