My First Blog Candy !!!

My family and I had a wonderful time in Fairbanks with family ! I went a little crazy at the craft stores, and now it's time for you to share in the wealth !! This is my way of saying thank-you to my wonderful friends who have encouraged me by checking out my blog . I want you to know how thankful I am for you . Now for the goods, I went a lottle nuts on rolls of ribbon, so the winner will get a yard of each pictured, some are Martha Stewart ! Large grommets, jumbo brads, alterable clips, an alterable wooden picture frame, a handfull of Foof-a-la buttons, Bazzill bling flowers, prima Forever Flowers ( four different colors) One sheet each of the Arctic Frog by the sea paper pad and one sheet each of the Seven Gypsies Capri journey !

O.K. all you have to do is leave a comment and tell me what you like about my site, maybe a favorite style or card. Or what you dislike about my site! Or something that you would like to see me do on my site. I would really appreciate it if new comers would take the time to brows my blog and actually see my work before leaving a comment. I do this out of courtesy to blogs I leave comments for candy on! Have a wonderful week and good-luck to all of you !!


Becky said...

Thanks so much for sharing your creative work! My favorite thing that I've seen on your site has been the scrapbook page about Micah's baptism! It really warmed my heart & made me look forward to the day that my own children will do the same!

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

oh my goodness! that mini criss cross card is soo cute! I will have to make one now! thanks for the great idea!

Linda SS said...

Your creativity is really amazing and I love your style work. The Baptism page is beautiful. I love that you incorporated the criss-cross card into the scrapbook pages and of course I rejoiced in Micah's special day:) I also really enjoyed the ice skating dog card and smiled at the fact that his sweater matched your background. Your blog is so much fun!

Cathy said...

Lori-I found your blog from your friend Nancy's blog. I check your blogs daily. I'm so glad you had a fun trip and are back safely. I enjoy your style of cards. You give me lots of wonderful ideas. Keep them coming. I've never posted a comment before, because for some reason it wouldn't let me! :]

StampinMom3-Kim said...

Oops..I forgot to tell you my favorite card. So far I'd have to say it was your Big Primas card. I would never have thought to half one on a card. I've borrowed your idea and loved it irl too! Thanks for sharing.

Mary Duffek said...

Hello!! OMG, this candy is FABULOUS!! Your Criss Cross Dutch Girl is AMAZING!!!!! I just got some of that paper and I'd love to CASE that card, if that's ok. You are very talented. I'd love to see some tutorials so I can do some of these amazing things myself!!

canben said...

I love your cards, they are so pretty. But I think I like the layout "Micah's Baptism" the best! The color combo is nice :)

jodene said...

I love how well your pictures are. Clean, crisp and large. Your cards are wonderful. Thanks for the chance!

Pattyjo said...

Your blog is awesome just the way it is now! Your cards are beautiful too, my favorite is the one inspired by the ocean.

thanks for the chance!

Kathy W said...

Very pretty cards here, and a lot of inspiration. I just love the mini criss cross card for both journaling on a scrapbook page or as an accent to a card. I think my favorite so far (haven't had a chance to go back through your archives, but I plan to!) is your scrapbook layout using the mini criss cross card. I appreciate you sharing both cardmaking and scrapbooking. Wonderful color combos and sketches here on your posts. Thanks for the chance to win a prize; I'm glad I found your site through Allison so I can check out your creativity.

Sandy said...

Ooooooh delish candy you bought, wow! Love those colours!

I love visiting your site---you have great style in your work, and you always have such encouraging things to say about the Lord and His presence in your life. Blessings to you!

Shannon said...

What i like about your site??? EVERYTHING!! I love seeing the cards and layouts that you make and I especially like the cards that you posted for your monthly class. The only thing that I would like to see is directions or names for the techniques that you have posted. Since I am no longer in Barrow and can't go to the classes I have to do them on my own!!

I hope that you had a great trip!!

lois lane said...

First of all let me say I love your blog name!!!! Second, I also try to look through a blog when I am putting my name in for blog candy. Only right!!! That is the way I have found so many great sites. And I have to say, yours is one of them. I am putting you into my favorites. Your cards are great and I can't pick a favorite! I loved your scrapbook page of your sons baptism. Priceless!!!

Melissas said...

Wow what fantastic candy! I enjoy the creations you share with each post, especially the Birthday Circles. YES! I have tons of papers that I love and never am sure how to put them together. I'm glad I'm not the only one and I like your solution :)

Lisa Ungry said...

Hi Laurie and welcome back home!
This is my first post to your blog although I've been checking it out fairly often. You're such an inspiration to me! I don't see how you have the time to do all you do! I don't think I could pick one favorite, they are all great! My only wish is that I could attend some of your technique classes. Maybe you could give some tips when you post some of the cards.

Lisa said...

I'm not sure if my first post went through so I'm trying it again!

Humm...what would be my favorite thing about your blog? EVERYTHING!!! God has blessed you with such talent and it is wonderful that you share it with us all.
Thanks for being my friend.

You are a very gifted artist. The scrapbook page of your sons Baptism really touched me. It's so beautiful. The colors you use in all of your work is always coordinated and combined so well.

starqueen said...

Hi laurie,
I love your blog. Your cards are beautiful...I really like it when you identify the elements you use, because I am a product girl and I like to know what's out there!

I think my favorite card to date is the butterfly card you did for Julee's Mojo Monday. So many diverse elements that came together beautifully!

Cindy Vernon said...

melissa roth said...

I really enjoy all the cards you make. My all time favorite is that Fall flower Bella. I loved the colors & layout and it was truly one of my favorite cards of all time.

Betty said...

I enjoy all the beautiful cards you make and all the sketch challenges!! Keep up the good work!!

Lori said...

I like the composition of your's just enough to look "finished" and not overdone by using too many patterns and embellishments.
I am trying to pay close attention to using more details without looking too "busy". I view your blog to help get to that level.

Thank you for sharing your talent with us!

Rachel said...

Love following your blog...I have you in my Google Reader. I love the baby name frame you recently posted. And what generous blog candy you are offering!

Jennifer said...

I love all the layers you put on your cards! I also like your mini cards with the pull out tabs...too cute!

Dale Anne said...

Am LOVING your samples!!!
Keep up the GREAT work on your blog.

Love in Him

I was really happy Allison sent me your way. You have a wonderful blog. The criss-cross cards are wonderful. I also like that you do so many different things with your cards -- different techniques, different compositions and colors, always showing something new and alive. Thanks for letting me play.

Well, I'm new to your blog and I must admit that your cards are so lovely that I can't tell which I like best. I love them fact I liked you blog so much that i did take the time to look at ALL OF THEM!!! They're all sooooo great! I really like the quilt ones those really stood out it's a technique that I should try since they look great.

Your blog is your cards! Your big prima swirl card is simply stunning...I love the Bundle of Joy baby card (posted in Aug.?)... criss cross cards are too cute...the bella fall card is another favorite! What's not to love??

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
