please email me with your snail mail address so I can send out your winner prizes. 

Well wasn't that an awesome tour, 
if you didn't get a chance to see it, click on the tour page
and you can see what my designs were.

The links are gone for this tour, 
so I hope you bookmarked all your favorites. 
Our next tour will be July 27 and 28.
It will coincide with the launch of the yearly US Ideas Book Catalog, 
so be sure to stop back here in July for updates!

Now for Blog Candy, this is the first time I am offering it,
we recently had a Stampin' Up! Convention right
here in Canberra, Australia on May 1-2 and was it 
AWESOME or what!!!

I picked up some goodies from Memento Mall,
these items are exclusive to Convention, so 
you get a chance to win something from the stash below.
You could live anywhere in the world and are
eligible to play, you won't know what you've won,
it will turn up in the mail, how cool is that.

All you have to do is enter comments on this page only and
you will be eligible to be in the draw, 
I will pick 3 winners and they will also 
receive one of the cards below.
P.S. you don't need to own a blog to be able to play,
you just need to be able to email me when you have won.

Go right to the bottom of this update and click on COMMENTS
only comments appearing on this page will qualify.

You have until Wednesday May 20th midnight to enter your comments. 
I have taken into consideration the time zone factor so it will be 
Thursday for me that I will draw the winner.

You will then contact me via email with your postal address
by Friday May 22, if I do not get an email from the 
winners by May 23, Saturday I will redraw.

Hi Bridget, Loved the pink Flower Pot best, but then I'm a pink girl :-) Always being the kind, generous one Bridget.... I think this little quote sums up Bridget... (wonder where I got it from)

by how he treats those who can do nothing for him ~ James D. Miles

Bridget, love your cards and the Kiwi Kiss flower pot...very clever indeed.
Great to hear you enjoyed the convention.
I'd love to win one of those pretty pink drink has my favourite stamp on it ... 'Upsy Daisy'.


Jean from jlfstudio said...

Hi Bridget,

Lovely of you to share your convention loot with an international audience. I'm betting that the drool is showing up just by osmosis so I hope you are wearing your "Wellies" (not sure how to spell that just that that's what my mom calls her gardening and rain boots). It hadn't occured to me to use the Embrace Life flowers in this way until I saw your entry for the blog hop. Stellar idea!

The Aussie SU Con looked awesome from the pictures I've been seeing on Aussie friends blogs. I think I saw you in some of the pictures too.

Thanks again and mucho visitors couldn't happen to a nicer and more talented lady. Bet you make 100,000 within the year!

Hugs from a sister demo ...
Cheers - Jean
