Our Favorite Things Blog Candy Extraganza

Welcome to the Our Favorite Things Blog Candy Extravaganza!  





You should have just come from Lisa's Blog. If you are just joining the hop and want to start from the beginning, please start at Dena's Blog.

This is going to be an amazing event!  Many of you are familiar with Oprah Winfrey's famous "Favorite Things" show where audience members walk away with an array of fabulous gifts.  It was always so fun to see how excited the audience members got with each giveaway.  Well, if you've always wished you could sit in the audience of one of those show tapings, we have the next best thing for you!

Each participant in this hop is going to share a favorite of hers.  It could be a craft-related item or a non-craft related item.  In addition to that, each blogger is giving away blog candy!  This means you have a chance to win at every stop!

Each blogger has her own rules for winning her blog candy, so please be sure to read the rules on each blog for a chance to win.

Without further ado, here is the project I created for this hop:

One of my favorite things (besides crafting) are purses and clutches! So I made a clutch!




Recipe:
Everything is from my stash


Tutorial for the clutch can be found by clicking here.




So for my blog candy...
Because I love digi stamps so much and because the hop is for 2 day (I have only one project but you have today and tomorrow to comment) I'm going to give away 2 $10.00 gift certificates to Bugaboo Stamps.


To win...
You must leave a comment and a way for me to reach you. Extra entries if you becomes friends of my blog and Facebook. I will use Random.org and announce the winners on Tuesday, March 6th.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed what I shared with you today. Please be sure to hop on over to Jennifer's Blog to see what she has to share with you and for more blog candy fun! Happy hopping and good luck to you!

Below is the entire blog hop lineup in case you lose your way:

Hi Girlfriend! My favorite "thing" is GIRLFRIENDS who CRAFT!! LOL. I just adore your clutch. So much fun! I too love digi-stamping so it would be great to win your digi-stamp prize from Bugaboo.

Hey, Ashley, please save the date of APRIL 21 (Saturday) .. I've booked incredible space at a local indoor market where about 12 of us are going to crop the day away, have make-n-takes, sell any wares we want (cards, supplies, etc.), have food, laugh, have a great time! PLEASE PLEASE COME. It will be in my hometown of Warminster, PA. Spread the word, bring a friend. $20 pp covers rentals (space, 6' table, chair), food, prizes, make-n-takes, etc. PLEASE COME -- would love to craft with you. I'll have all my electronics, 100+ Cricut cartridges, MTC/SCAL and computer, printer to use there, 50+ dies w/Sizzix and Cuttlebug ... FUN!!!!! RSVP to me!

Fondly,
Ellen ♥ CardMonkey

Ashley, OMG this is so cute! My BFF is a purse collector. Her birthday is next month and I made her a little ladybug purse once. Thank you for including the tutorial page. This clutch would be a perfect size to carry the small things that she has in her pencil box that she brings with her to my house when we craft together. I love the paper you chose too. So elegant looking with the addition of the bling. Already a follower of blog and FB. tfs Tami
