Blog Candy Au Chocolat Winner Announcement

I promised you a winner this afternoon . . . however, that was before my back "went out" and I instantly became a 100 year old woman.  I shuffle from room to room (think Tim Conway on the Carol Burnett Show) and need to lift my legs with my hands and swing them around when getting out of bed or exiting the  car.  So my post will be short and sweet but a fun one is ready to go for tomorrow!

Congratulations, Christina on winning the Au Chocolate blog candy with the following comment: 

Oooh, sweet treats!! I dunno anything specific I want to see in the new catty, but I always look forward to the flower sets!

Christina . . . please email me your address in the next 48 hours so I can send you your goodies.

Thank you to everyone who participated.  I'm compiling a list of your great ideas and plan to share them with Stampin' Up!  They are very good about listening to suggestions. Take a peek at the comments on the previous post to see what SU stampers really want!  There's a large contingency (including me) that wants to see all (or more) Stampin' Up! sets die-cut.  Other hopefuls, lots of pretty designer series paper, masculine and flower stamp sets, more stamp sets for watercoloring, even a request for sushi stamps.

Personally . . . not only do I hope to see all die cut stamps, I would like to see markers in the new In Colors, more punches, 4 x 4 envelopes (although I'll share a simple shortcut to making 4 x 4's in tomorrow's post).  Of course, tons and tons of designer paper.

Hugs and Pretties.  I'm off to put my feet up for the evening . . . . Mary

    Oh Mary, I’m so very sorry about your back. I have hobbled in your shoes, and have seen my siblings there more than once. Keep up your regular treatments (ice/heat) and feel better!
