Congratulations Julie on your blogaversary. Three things...the best was having a heart attack. You know all those sayings like "if it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger" my favorite is "it gives you a whole new outlook on life." That is so true. I quit smoking (after 38 years) and I stopped drinking all together and I have never been more healthy. I have a great family and I enjoy every day. Melissa

Congrats Melissa!
Sounds like you've got some fabulous things to be thankful for, and now you've got a little blog candy to sweeten the year. Email me your mailing address and I'll get your pile of loot on its way! :)

Thanks to everyone who celebrated with me this past week! So many of you have such wonderful blessings in your lives, and I was moved to tears several times while reading the entries. It's amazing to see the strength and peace that can come out of tough times in our lives. When it really comes down to it, our favorite things are not "things" at all.

I'd also like to send out another big thanks to Alma who donated the TCP sets for the prize package. Today's card was totally inspired by Alma and The Cat's Pajamas colors. This one uses the Candyland set by TCP. I just loved this little image of Sprinkle driving the candy train. I stamped it twice and colored with Copics, then cut out pieces and parts and pieced on with pop dots for some dimension. I added all sorts of glitter to the image, then sketched a border and colored around it with a Copic marker. The pink striped paper is from the Nana's Nursery Girl pad by DCWV, and I used the Fiskars Threading Water punch for the scalloped border. I finished off with black matting and the Do I Smell Candy sentiment on soft yellow cardstock.
