Greetings from the Changitos plus **BLOG CANDY**!!!

Greetings and Happy Monday everyone!! So I'd thought I'd start out the week with a little love for my Changito stamps and offer up some sweet blog candy in honor of the start of Spring and the fact that last week I reached 30,000 hits on my blog!!! It's really thanks to all of you - you all make blogging SO much fun and I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the sweet comments you leave too - it really brightens my day and so I am hoping this blog candy will brighten one of your days too!! First - let me tell you about the card I have for you today - I recently bought the "Car Changito" cling mount stamp at Archiver's and for some reason - I kept thinking it looked like a taxi - LOL - you guys know me and the way my mind seems to twist things around sometimes. So - I added the word "taxi" and a number to the front license plate using Doodlebug Simply Sweet rub-on letters - colored it yellow - masked it in front of the cityscape from the MFT "Going Places" set - and BOOM - instant taxi - hee hee...OK - well maybe not so instant - but it was fun to make this little city scene. The die cut cityscape behind the image was cut using one of those old Sizzix border dies (yeah - had to wipe the dust off of those) and I embossed the yellow panel with the CB "Traffic Jam" embossing folder. The decorative edge at the bottom was done using the Martha Stewart Checkerboard edge punch and the sentiment is from the MFT "Sassy Sayings" set. Now - onto the blog candy....here is what is up for grabs...

I am offering one brand new in package Stampendous "Changito Hop" stamp set - this is the Easter Changito clear set and it is exclusive to Archiver's - so it can be hard to find if you don't have a Archiver's near you. I'm also offering some spring-y colored ribbon and a pak of assorted flower brads. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to be entered to win my blog candy - you have until this Friday (March 27th) at noon to be entered to win - on Friday - I will draw one random name from the comments left to win the blog candy!! Easy peasy - oh - and if you are leaving a comment under an Anonymous ID - please be sure to leave an e-mail address so I can contact you if you are the winner!! Thanks to all of you for your support!! Don't forget to leave me a comment for your chance to win and please spread the word if you know of anyone who would love a chance to own a set of these adorable little monkeys!!

Super card. Love your creativity into making it a taxi with the MS punch accent! I have a new grandson that my dd calls sweet monkey. So I could use the set. There are no Archivers within 200 miles of where I live.
