Prairie Fairy's Spread the Word Candy

Prairie Fairy has moved back to Blogger and is having a candy giveaway to celebrate.  Check it out here.

Candy Alert!!!

Just wanted to pass on some blog candy I just stumbled across.  Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Blog had such a great response to their first candy that they are having another candy giveaway.  Be sure to check it out!

Snowman Notepad

The whole time I was putting this together I was shaking my head, saying "I don't know about this." (I talk to myself often while crafting).  I'm very happy with how this notepad turned out though.  I don't know about you, but I really like the blue/brown color combo for Christmas.  I wasn't too sure about the brown snowflakes and star, but once I put the Stickles on I knew they were exactly what I wanted.  I'm surprised I managed to fit everything on the front of this since it's just over 3" all the way around.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - 3 snowflake, 2 circles & lace
Sketch Saturday  - Sketch
Really Reasonable Ribbon - ABC Winter
Creative Inspirations  - Christmas Gifts
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - ABC
Make it Crafty  - ABC

Card Patterns - Sketch
Paper Romance - Winter

Thanks for looking & have a great day!
