Good Evening Everyone!!! Its Blog Candy Time!!! I can not believe my very first post was in April and I have hit the 10,000 mark already. I want to thank everyone who has been supporting my blog and leaving such sweet comments. You guys are so great and it is sooo wonderful to have great blogging friends like you!! To celebrate my mark, I know I am a little late but I couldn't decide what to do. I decided to give away some candy with just a little twist. All of my followers will be entered, all they have to do is leave a comment to this post and let me know you have added it to your blog. New blogging friends are welcome, please follow, and link my candy to your blog. I will end this Candy on July 31st at Midnight Eastern Standard Time.

Here is the fun part....You will be entered twice if you link me a card. What kind of card??? its easy, a celebration card. It can be birthday, wedding, engagement, grad, etc. anything CELEBRATING something since I am celebrating 10,000 hits. Sound like fun??? I would love to see what everyone comes up with. Please add your card to Mr. Linky!!

Want to know what's inside, Here we go!!
