Blog Candy

I have picked a random winner using the number of your comment post. The winner is jcscraphappy #72.....So it has been awhile since I posted some blog candy. Those of you they frequent my other blog Paper Flowers know of my addictions to CuttleBug embossing folders and Martha Stewart border punches. Well about two weeks ago I saw the most amazing package of Asian embossing folders on the Provocraft website and ordered them directly from them. The package arrived last week. I was so excited as they are beautiful and had several Valentine's projects in mind. But much to my dismay I opened the package and they had sent me the wrong folders. They had sent me the Winter bundle. I called and they said this had happened to several people and they would send out the Asian folders but to keep the Winters for my trouble. Well, being the addict I am. I already have these folders. So I am offering them here today as blog candy. Here is how you enter. Leave a message in the comments section telling me what types of vintage images you would like to see on SIB. I will pick a random winner from the comments next Saturday. Good Luck!

Hi Cora what fabulous candy you are offering was rather nice of them to let you keep the ones they are sent in error. I love all vintage it is an era that appeals to me greatly I think maybe I lived in those times because I love it so much I adore the Victorian period but also the later Art Nouveau and Art Deco period. I just love anything old

I so enjoy both your Clearly Vintage and Two for Tuesday sites. Thanks for all the work you do to make them possible!
I enjoy most of the vintage images you post, but I suppose my favorites are Victorian and Holidays though.

Lovely candy! I'm an addict too and love winter images, so would definitely give these a good home! As for vintage images, I love labels and seed packets...and botanical s...and fairies! LOL!!

Hopemore Studio said...

Wow what fun! I used to work for a scrapbook store and it's amazing how many times they make mistakes like that, but that's our gain :)

I love your holiday postcards but I am seeing a new appreciation for old advertisement images as well.

Nice prize package. I love my Cuttlebug. I really like all the Victorian images the most - especially the Christmas ones - and the old post cards. I really thank you for sharing all the ones that you have.

CraftyViolet said...

I like your daughter's taste! I visit some residents in a nearby nursing home - ones from our church and ones that have no family and I like to make cards for them (which they love to receive). As soon as I saw today's pictures I knew the ladies will love Easter cards made with these. Thanks.

Thanks so much for offering up those great folders for your readers! I love anything Victorian, and your images are always so wonderful.

Hello Cora,

Thank you for sharing with us such a beautiful blog candy.

I love the vintage images you offer on your site Two for Tuesdays and my favorite are those with children. The second favorites are the Christmas images(the vintage Christmas images you gave at the end of last year were so beautiful). Oh, and there are also the fairies. Ok, I admit it, I love them all - lol.

Hugs.

Hugs from a 110F Australia(just past noon)!

My father is a vintage postcard collector/dealer. I always like to see what he has found for the lesser known holidays - St. Patrick's Day, Arbor Day, etc. It would be great to see what you have for those. And I would love to get the blog candy - I just got my Cuttlebug.
