It's time for BLOG CANDY!

I am so excited to share some fun BLOG CANDY with you today! Kate over at i {heart} papers has graciously given all of her design team members some candy to give away, and it's my turn! Woot! Here's the loot (hey, that rhymed...):




You will win Inkadinkado's Christmas Characters stamp set, a bottle of Christmas Red Stickles, and three yards of this super cool metallic silver string. And just think, if you win, you can make super cute Christmas cards like this:


I used the silver string over white organdy on the top and bottom boxes, and the santa stamp from the set. Here is a close-up of "ho ho" (as my two year old would say):


I'll be you didn't know Santa shopped at Tiffany's, did you? ;o) I also used this set on my Very Merry Christmas card that I posted a little over a week ago. I just love all of these images and sentiments, and I know you will too!

SO!! What do you have to do to get the candy? Well, it's simple. Leave me a comment on this post telling me what your favorite Christmas movie is. I would also GREATLY appreciate it if you would spread the word about the blog candy on your blog, but I'm going to use the honor system for that requirement, so don't worry about having to link me up. I'll choose a random winner Sunday night and post the winner on my blog. If you don't have a blog, you're still welcome to enter, just make sure there is some kind of contact info in your comment so I know how to find you! THE CONTEST IS OVER. THANKS FOR PLAYING!

Today is also a CBC Challenge day. This week's challenge is chipboard. I had every intention of including a little chipboard on this card when I made it last night, but try as I might, I just couldn't find a good way to work it in. :*( Be sure to check out all of the other CBC Chick's blogs for great ideas of how to use chipboard though!

Christmas Characters Stamp Set
Metallic Silver String

Such a cute card! I have to say not much of a movie buff but I do remember watching 'Elf' with the kids and thought it was pretty funny!

Dani said...

Such a stinkin' cute card! I love how you tied the string with the organdy.

My fav Christmas movie is How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The original animated one. The new one is funny, but I will always love the original the most. :)

Wow- Good question. I'm going to have to say that it's not the holidays without watching the original "Miracle on 34th Street" at least once. Nothing puts me in the shopping & festive mood like it! Thanks for your beautiful blog & for asking! Happy Holidays!

JenN said...

I don't think there's a Christmas movie that I don't love, but just to name some favorites: Santa Claus: the Movie, The Polar Express, Rudolph... and White Christmas.

Christi said...

What awesome candy!! My favorite Christmas movie has to be Christmas Vacation. I laugh every year! It never stops being funny!

Johna said...

I love National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!! I live in Oklahoma, so I can totally relate to the "cuzins in th RV". And the squirrel and the cat kill me!
Love your art!

Oh, this is too cute Sarah! My favorite holiday movie would have to be Miracle on 34th Street. I mean really...how do you not love that movie?

Noelle said...

Me! Me! I want the candy! Do I get points for blunt honesty? LOL. Favorite Christmas movie? That's a toughie because I'm such a sucker for Christmas movies. I'll go with A Christmas Story.

Oma said...

Very cute stamp set....love the penguin!

KanataNewf said...

oops...I forgot my favourite Christmas movie....Well....very non-traditional but I have to say "Die Hard" ... yup, the Bruce Willis action movie. I know, I'm a little eccentric.

Sara (Chicago Girl) said...

I too love the penguin. Such yummy blog candy. I'm off to give you a shout out. ;)

Sara (Chicago Girl) said...

I guess I am totally coping kanatanewf because I too forgot my favorite movie...It is White Christmas. My favorite kids movie is the Little Drummer Boy, I just love that song.

Jess said...

Valorie said...

Very cute, Sarah! I love the card you made with this set! Lots of possibilities.
My favorite Christmas movie is "A Christmas Story." That movie always cracks me up.

Argyle Cats said...

My favorite Christmas movie is The Grinch That Stole Christmas, both versions- cartoon and the one with Jim Carey.
Thanks for the chance to win!

ladyaramina10 said...

I love A Christmas Story ("I like the Wizard of Oz"), but for sentimentality, I'd have to say Miracle on 34th Street, the original-original, not the 70's version or the newer one. And you *know* how much I like candy. ;)

Jodi

cheribella said...

Love your card! There isn't a Christmas movie I don't like to tell you the truth but I always look forward to Miracle on 34th Street.

Catherine said...

Can't think of a fav Christmas movie right now..i know how sad but any Christmas love story, it's just a must for me :)

Thanks for a chance.

codyshelly said...

There's no way I can choose just one favorite Christmas movie! I love them all, except for one...I can't stand The Christmas Story. And that's one of the few my dh likes! It's a Wonderful Life, Polar Express, Christmas Carol, and one that no one has probably even heard of...Mr. Kruggar's Christmas. Those are all right at the top of my list!

Alanna said...

What fun blog candy. Thanks for the chance to win. My favorite Christmas movie is Christmas Vacation with the Griswalds. We watch it every Christmas afternoon and it makes me laugh each year.

Pam's Pride said...

One of my favorite Christmas movies is The Christmas Shoes!

Jennifer Love said...

What a CUTE CUTE card!! As for picking a favorite movie, for me that would be the same as picking a favorite chocolate bar. THERE ARE TOO MANY CHOICES. LOL! I always watch White Christmas though. (Even when it isn't Christmas...hehe)

Frogwoman said...

The carton version of The Grinch that Stole Christmas is my favorite. But I also love all those old cheesy Rudolph and Frosty cartoons.
