I'm Home & Blog Candy


My contest has ended....and Random.org has chosen for me # 50 Cindy Vernon & #74 Kristina.
Congratulations to the winners! Please e-mail me at rrz6698@yahoo.com with your snail mail address, so that I can get your new stamp sets out to you. Thanks for playing everyone!

____________________________________________________________________
Hello everyone! We returned home from camping on Friday, and had a wonderful time! I hope you all enjoyed the Bella swaps I posted, as I was so happy to have some great cards to share while I was away.

As promised, I have blog candy to give away. I reached 15,000 hits just before we left on vacation...so this time around I am giving away each of these Autumn Leaves Swirls stamps to two lucky winners. To enter, please leave a comment below this post to let me know you would like to be entered. Share whatever you'd like...or let me know if you think I should get rid of Snap Preview (I was reading over at SCS that many people are irritated by it). Be sure to check back to see if you are a winner. I will be drawing Monday evening at 6:00 PM.



Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome back! I'm glad you had such a great time!

Wouldn't it be great to win this blog candy! I love the swirls and flourishes by Rhonna Farrer and, to this point, don't own a single set. I'll keep my fingers crossed. :)

Love reading your blog periodically. Thanks for offering blog candy.

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

Amy said...

Welcome home! Your vacation photos are enviable :-).

I read your blog via email, so I don't normally encounter the snap previews...

Lilian said...

i'm glad u're back and it looks like u had so much fun.

those flourishes look divine... thanks for offering it! :)

Melissa said...

I have no problem with the snap preview! In fact, I kind of like it.

Thanks for the chance to win the blog candy - those swirls are awesome!

Dottie K said...

Hi Rose Ann - Glad your back - enjoyed the Bella swap cards. TFS - Looks like everyone had a good time and love the lighthouse photo. It's your blog - so whatever makes you happy!!!

jmniffer said...

Looks like you had a great time on vacation. Super blog candy that you are offering, I would LOVE to win it! I haven't stamped with any of the clear sets yet, seems like a neat idea.

I'm not a fan of the snap preview, it ends up irritating me. Just my opinion.

Well Said Cards said...

Oh man! I have been drooling over these stamps forever! Love your blog. I guess the snap preview only irritates me when it won't let me pick the link. It's kind of fussy sometimes. But other than that, I love everything about your blog!

Tammy said...

congrats on your numbers, that's fantastic!
count me among those that would be thrilled to win one of the sets, and also as one who is irritated by the snap thingy {but i've dealt with it and i'm only sayin' now cuz you asked!}

ChristlMC said...

Paper Delightz is the home page on my laptop! It was a card you did with the 'Doodle This' set that did it. My version turned out differently than yours but your site is the one I see first and look to first for inspiration! Thanks so much.

I'm not a fan of snap preview - I always seem to mouse over a link when I'm not trying to and the pop up is annoying.

Donna B. said...

great blog candy! You're on my google reader so I always know when you have updates, and the snap preview is no big deal to me

Peggy S said...

I loved seeing Bella cards! Oh make more birdie cards :) !

Thanks for the chance -- I love the whole swirls stamps -- loved seeing the Baroque set from the demos!

Melissa Norris said...

Congrats on the hits and great candy!! The snap preview doesn't really bug me either way. Keep up the great blogging!

Splashryan said...

I can't believe how much earlier you all get for summer holidays. My son is still in school until next wednesday! I would so love to be entered for your blog candy! Thank you for letting us play!

Thanks!

Welcome back! I don't mind the snap preview. Love the candy!

Heidi said...

Hey girl! 15,000! Great job! I used to have snap preview on my blog but one day it disappeared and I guess you could say I didn't miss it. Sweet candy too!

Cathy said...

Glad to hear you had a great time. Welcome back. Wow what sweet candy you have. What stamper doesn't love the swirls and flourishes. I'm going to keep my fingers cross..ok..I might have to tape them together. Thanks for a chance.

Jessica said...

Thanks for the chance to win the great stamps! Just because you asked, I don't like the snap preview. I agree that it is annoying and it has not been useful for me at all. Thanks!

fran said...

The snap previews don't show up on google reader - at least not that I've noticed! I only see them on your site. They don't bother me. Glad you're home.

Jackie said...

Generous blog candy! I enjoy your blog and don't mind the snap thingy at all.

HeyHeyPaula said...

Glad you had a fun vacation. I enjoy visiting you blog & I don't mind the snap previews. Thanks for offering such super blog candy.

Angel W said...

I haven't made up my mind on the Snap preview yet. I did have it on my old blog... I didn't know hot to utrn it off. Thanks for offering blog goodies!

Michelle said...

Found you through Allison!
Love Autumn Leaves stamps! Thanks for the chance to win!

Nancy Grant said...

Hello! What fun! I am not a fan of snap preview but I don't detest it. It definately would not keep me from visiting your blog or any other blog that has it.
Welcome home,
NG.

Jessica said...

This is a gorgeous set! We must be on the same wavelength because I offered some blog candy tonight, too! :)

MerryMerlin said...

Oooh, I love these Rhonna swirls! I have some other clear sets of hers, but not these. Thanks for the great prize offerings.

I'm not sure the snap previews add anything substantive and I wonder how quick they are to display on slow connections....

Thanks, Rose Ann!

jodene said...

I love the candy!! I am not a fan of the snap preview. It confuses me. Thanks for sharing with us all.

Shannon said...

I personally don't like the snap preview.

I love those Autumn Leaves swirls though!

Laura said...

I want to win!! *grin* Your cards are looooovely!!

Jan Scholl said...

What are snap previews? those weird pop up thingies whenever I hover over something? If so, hate them on all the blogs!

I love these stamps and hope they come out with more soon.

Dawn Griffith said...

doverdi said...

Congrats on all your hits. Glad to hear you had a wonderful time camping. I used to love camping. Awesome blog candy! I love the swirls and flourishes by Rhonna Farrer they are so elegant & what an awesome blog candy prize for some lucky winner.
I'm not crazy about the snap preview either. I love your Bella cards. I did about 5 different Bella swaps when I first got my bella's (2 I even hosted) and love all the beautiful cards I have.
Thanks again for the chance to win a great prize.

Andrea Hays said...

Oh my goodness! Love this set SO VERY MUCH! I could give it a wonderful home! :) I have just recently started using clear stamps from the dollar bin at Michael's and I am really enjoying them. Thanks for this chance! Keep up the great work on your blog!

Suzy said...

I adore your site and check it daily. I love the feminine swirls and flourishes and am so happy these are "hot" right now so please count me in for a chance to win yay!

I am using so many clear stamps lately - lots of Autumn Leaves and I just ordered Paper Trey. I got my first Stampendous yesterday too but I am not sure the quality is as good as Autumn Leaves, but it may be my new block. I will have to play with it.

Anyhoo - I am not a fan of the snap thing because it scares me! There I am in the card "zone" and I mouse over a link and hear this CLICK and something pops up. So I get hesitant to freely search. It isn't a big deal and has never stopped me from visiting a site, but I never got anything out of the snap thing.

Thanks for the chance to win :)

JoAnn said...

Oooh! I love those flourish stamps! Thanks for an opportunity to win them. I find Snap kind of annoying, but it's not going to stop me from reading anyone's blog if they have it!

Anouk Martin said...

So glad you enjoyed yourself! Those stamps are uber cool. What a great thing to win. I hate to tell you, I really dislike that snap thingie. Very distracting.

Melissa said...

Glad you enjoyed the camping! I have yet to go with the entire family, buy my husband and two of my sons have gone. They like to go!
Love the blog candy!! I'm starting to get into the swirls and stuff. Would love to win it!
Thanks for sharing all your creations with us!

Pat S. said...

Hi Rose Ann!
Congratulations on 15,000...WOW!!!

I would simply love to give that swirls set a new home...it just goes with everything!

And, my opinion on the snap preview...for me, it's irritating and a waste of time.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Connie Good said...

Glad to here you had a great camping trip. Oh ya love the candy you are giving away **** I really don't have a problem with the snap preview. Thanks for sharing!!!!!

chinamomxtwo said...

Great blog...and Love the blog candy! Those swirls are so great! :) I want them! (pick me!pick me!)
I think the snap preview is fine, it doesn't 'irritate' me at all.....
Glad you had fun cmaping, am heading out with my two girls in a couple of weeks to do the same...so much fun!
Jeanne

Michelle said...

I would love to win your blog candy. I love your blog, love your designs.

Colleen, PA said...

Hello. What great blog candy! I think that the snap windows are distracting. I was just checking out your gallery... you are super talented. Keep up the awesome work.

Julie Mutch said...

Oh what gorgeous stamps! Even more gorgeous is that sunset over Lake Michigan. What a beautiful place, you must have hated to come home! lol :)

Love reading your blog! Your work is great! Thanks for offering up such awesome candy!

Have a great day!
Julie

kamstamper said...

I love all the cards on your blog site...they really make me smile! I must say though that Snap Preview drives me nuts!

Wondeful blog candy!

Amy K said...

Glad you are back!!! We're big campers too - leaving on Saturday (hopefully my catty will be here so I can sit back and dream by the fire!) I don't mind the Snap Preview thing. I love your blog - do what you like!!

Would love to try acrylics - never have! Thanks for the opportunity!

Nancy said...

Totally enjoy your blog! I had Snap Preview on my blog but removed it as it was starting to annoy me. I loved it at first.

Cindy Vernon said...

HI, snap preview doesn't bother me! Please enter me in your drawing.

scfranson said...

Glad to hear you had a great time !
I don't like snap at all, it's really irritating. Love your blog though.

kthaman (scs) said...

Entering for blog candy. Those are some awesome stamps that I haven't found locally yet.

I love reading your blog. As for the snap preview...it is a little annoying :) Usually I just keep my cursor in a margin so it doesn't activate the preview. Simple enough!

Carolyn said...

The snap preview doesn't bother me one way or the other. I also have not tried any of the clear stamps yet. Thanks for sharing

Dawn said...

I've been admiring your site for some time now! I don't have those stamps and have been on the hunt for them in stores here in Edmonton. No luck as of yet...LOL
I don't have those snapshots on my blog but only because I haven't figured out how to...I vote keep them!

Denise said...

WOW! What great blog candy! Welcome home!

foodpartyfun said...

Great stamp set! Thanks for a chance to win.

Pat

Ruth said...

I just got the Autumn Leaves Scribbles alphabet set and love them - these swirls would be great to have too! I am not a fan of the Snap preview - my browser has the option to download a plugin that will do that, but I don't think it should be forced upon people. My two cents!

Elaine said...

Be still my heart!! Those swirlies are the cutest and would love to find their way to my home! lol

Welcome back from your time away! Thanks for the candy I hope it is mine~!

Elaine

geraldine said...

Nice blog candy ;) I see cute cards with those stamps but I don't have them :P Yes, I would vote to get rid of the snap preview too :P

Silvergirl said...

That's amazing blog candy! I'd love to win!!! Glad to have you back... I've enjoyed your recent posts (since I've just found you).

Thanks,
Lisa

Linda SS said...

Glad you had a fun vacation. I love the photo of your family in the water...makes me want to head straight for the lake! I LOVE your cards and have added you to my favorites.

Denise said...

Ooooh...I want to win! I have been eyeing swirls and wishing, wishing, wishing!

chelemom said...

I would love to win this blog candy! I love your blog and think you are the sweetest person! I don't have a clue what the snap preview is...I am not a SU! demonstrator...I am assuming it has something to do with that?

Fran M said...

I love, love, love Rhonna Farrer stamps and I don't think I have this set. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I win!

Cindy Keery said...

Hello!

I love these stamp sets - very pretty!

Yes, the snap preview drives me batty. ;-) I had it on my blog for awhile, too, cuz I thought it would be neat but it just drove me crazy.

Cindy

Connie Conlon said...

Your blog is first on my list so I visit almost daily. I love the swirls. Thanks for offering.

Angie Warren said...

Thanks!

Congratulations on 15,000 hits! Wooooohoooooooooooooooo!!!!

I've been eyeing more brands of clear stamps lately. I think I need to drive a little farther over to Plano for few choices.

Congrats again!

Marg said...

I like Snap previews...but I do wish it didn't do previews on pictures - only on links! I've only put it on my reading blog a month or so ago...so I hope it's not passe already!

GinaP said...

ooh, those swirls are fantastic looking! I've never had an acrylic stamp before, so it would be a great way to start trying them out! Count me in! Welcome home, too!

Cheryl said...

Congrats on the hits. It is terrific that so many are finding your great blog. I am not real crazy about the snap preview. But it wouldn't stop me from visiting. Thanks for this blog candy. I love the swirls.

Hope you had a great vacation! Those Rhonna Farrer stamps are awesome. Here's hoping.

I'm not fond of the Snap preview. It can get annoying at times.

I do not care for snap preview myself...just my two cents! thanks for the blog candy offer!

Clear stamps are becoming a new favorite of mine. They stamp so beautifully and you can see where you place them. Thanks for the chance to win.

Suzanne said...

I have never seen these stamps! They are very cute! Hope I win!
