Hambo Hoedown #8

Here's my entry into Hambo Hoedown #8.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but I've heard it said.......

In fact, no one in my immediate family is a coffee drinker. Except sometimes my hubby does drink a cup or two to be social, but he adds so much sugar and creamer that "real" coffee drinkers usually just stare at him!

Have a fun day, and go join in this challenge!


is # 6 - Theresa P. This was scientific - Hubby picked his favorite number - and then asked "what am I choosing a number for?" Since I couldn't get that random thing to work for me.

So, Congrats Theresa P - Please contact me (terriavidreader at yahoo dot com) and I'll need your address to send you the blog candy! You have until Friday afternoon to send me the info.

Thanks everyone for participating. I hope to do this again within the next couple of months.

Blog candy over!

Time's Up. I am now working with those who entered my blog candy and will post the winner this evening. Thank you every one who signed up. Good Luck!

Hambo Hoedown #7

Here's my card for Hambo Hoedown #7, using this cute little party elephant and Sparkle! I used the little "flowers" for the stars in the party night sky! And a reference to a great oldie song!

Come join the party at Hambo Hoedown. It's fun and there are cute images to be had!

Sorry I'm late with this..... Blog Candy


**I've added a few more items to the candy - Remember is closes on the 23rd!(probably the middle of the day)
And there is an EK punch there (someone asked what the black thing was)...

Here's my blog candy. It should stay on top until it ends on March 23rd.

No special reason for this candy now, other than I have been very lucky in blog candy wins, and I wanted to share with everyone. Sorry there isn't more here, but unemployment isn't a good thing.

There may be a couple things added (I had a few more things but have misplaced them - so if they are found I'll add them!).

Open to everyone. Just please become a follower of my blog if you aren't already, and put this candy on your sidebar.

Blogging Pet Peeves..... anyone want to chime in.....

One of my blogging pet peeves is: when a blog has a blog candy announcement in their sidebar and they never clean it up...

Come on, I've found blog candy listings recently on several blogs that are dated from OVER a year ago. The links are more than 365 days ago! Come on!

Now I admit I don't get mine off immediately, but they are never on there longer than a month past the blog candy win date. I always find time to go "clean up" my sidebar of announcements and things sometime during the month.

And I also HATE it when someone has their own candy, and cannot seem to announce a winner within a reasonable time of the announced closing.

I mean come on, if you post your own blog candy stating it closes on a specific day - you should announce the winner within a couple days. After all, you chose the close date. I realize sometimes something may come up, some emergency of something, but sometimes I think people just deliberately refuse to announce within a week or so to just get people coming back every day to check.

I have never signed up to follow a blog just for candy - NEVER. I don't think anyone should do that, just out of plain courtesy.

I love blog candy - don't get me wrong, but I also love finding new blogs to follow and rarely have I been so disappointed with a blog (actually, 3 times) that I discontinue following after a while. Two of those basically quit posting much - just a very few times a year, and the other one drastically switched styles of projects into something that I am not interested in at all.

Anyone want to join in - What is your pet peeve about blogging? No personal attack, no names of bloggers please - but are there things you find continually that irritate you? Things that can be readily fixed? I hate when you click on a link and it's broken, and I try to let the blogger know that too. I've had that happen to me. I'd like to know. But some people have gotten really irritated when I comment about please announce the winner already - when it's more than a week after the close date!

Joan's Garden Challenge

Here's my card for the challenge at
Joan's Garden - it's the Just Rite one that ends tomorrow.

So I'm just squeaking by. I don't have many Just Rite products, but this is a set I had purchased from Joan's a year or two ago, and don't often think to use it. Maybe I'm getting into the "Spring" of things!

Anyway, there are TONS of prizes available on this one, so I couldn't pass up the chance to make a card and try!

Challenge at Pieces of Fate

Here's a card I made for a challenge over at Pieces of Fate.

The challenge is to make a card with No flowers of any kind, not in the paper or as embellishments or anything.

And the hubby gets to pick. So hopefully he likes birds! I think Momma birds are the most wonderful caregivers. I love watching them in the summer constantly fly back and forth to the nest.

Have a great day, and get busy, Mother's Day comes really soon.
