Good grief, this has been a hectic week!
My apologies for not posting this yesterday. I had an opportunity to see a movie with Spouse and without Gigi, and you know I grabbed that opportunity! (We went to seee Shutter Island - which was very good. We were pretty sure we knew how it would end, and it didn't disappoint. If poor Leo doesn't finally win an Oscar next year, I'll be very depressed for him.)
Okay, on with the show!
Share the love and nominate someone here whose work has inspired you between February 1st and February 15th, 2010.
I created two card kits as prizes (see inventory below) - one for the nominator and one for the nominee who inspired the nominator. The pair will be selected via a random number generator.
I’ve decided to do this every other Friday, and THEN, at the end of the first quarter, I’ll have a random drawing from ALL the nominees and nominators for ONE piece of actual Blog Candy - something a little more substantial than a Morsel (like a Hero Arts Clear Set, for example).
1. Nominate someone whose work has inspired you in the past two weeks by linking to the art that inspired you (use Mr. Linky below). You will put YOUR name into the name field, but link to HER art.
2. If your nominee is randomly chosen, you, the nominator, will need to leave me a comment on the announcement post telling me how to contact you so I can get your snail mail address. If you don't, I'll have no way of getting your prize to you because Mr. Linky will only have a link to your nominee, not you.
- As a nominator, you can nominate as many as three different people each time we have a draw.
- As a nominee, you can be nominated an unlimited number of times.
- The nomination period for this draw is February 1 – February 15, 2010.
- The nomination deadline is 11:59 p.m., EST, on Monday, February 23, 2010.
The prize is a card kit I created out of coordinating materials from my stash. Although I'm only including one card base, there are enough materials to make more than one card. And if you don't believe me, you should see what Linda and Hannah did with their card kits from the last time around! (I'll be having a special post featuring the two of them as soon as I get their permission - their creations will knock your socks off!)
This card kit includes:
- 1 card base and envelope (not shown)
- 8 pieces of My Mind's Eye 6" x 6" patterned paper (2 of each pattern)
- 3 Nestibility paper shapes
- 4 stamped images (not shown - it's a surprise!)
- 1 yard of ribbon
- 1 button (Autumn Leaves)
- 2 clear stamps (Autumn Leaves)
- 2 chipboard shapes
- 1 large flower (Heidi Swapp)
- 3 paper flowers (Prima)
- 3 butterflies (punch by Martha Stewart)
- 3 Architexture stones (EK Success)
- 3 Gems (Mark Richards)
Remember, all nominees and nominators from the Inspiration Rewards are eligible to enter for a piece of Blog Candy (TBA) drawing in April, 2010.
Hi Deborah - thanks for the opportunity to win! I was inspired by StamperSuzz's beautiful shamrock card - just loved all the green and white framed in black!

It's been awhile since I've done this! I've been so Busy. I was inspired by Barbs beautiful bright card.
