Blogiversary Blog Candy!!!


Today starts my blogiversary/200k celebration! It's also my husband's birthday, so we can celebrate that too :) !!! Yep, it's been one year since I started my little blog! I honestly didn't think I had that much to share, but my sweet friend Kim encouraged me to get started and I'm so glad she did! Thank YOU for visiting Paper Smiles and for leaving such sweet comments!! If you ever wonder, I do read each and every one :) ! So, without further adeiu, let's get this party started...Woo-hoo!!! I have some brand spankin' new Anyas (from Pink Poison) to show you today. The first card is the super cool Rock Star Anya ...you can double click on the photo to see all the shimmer on her guitar :) thanks to my Spica Red Glitter pen!!!
Next, we have the lovely
Mermaid Anya ~Followed by the well-dressed (love that skirt!) Teacher Anya (and the "for you" from the "sentiment" set... that set includes a total of 18 sentiments and that set is included in the blog candy!)And the jolly little Limited Edition, Elf Anya (and that sentiment set again!)~

These 4 new Anyas will be released on November 1st, along with 3 new sets ... you don't have long to wait! I'll be showing you samples from the new sets over the next week!
And now (drum roll please) how about some BLOG CANDY??? Marie (aka Pink Poison) was nice enough to donate ALL these great stamps (thanks Marie!!), so I'm giving them all way as one SPLENDID Blog Candy package! Here's the sweet stuff ~If you're the lucky winner, you'll get: Angel Anya, Princess Anya, Nurse Anya, Sentiments, Fancy Fleurs & the Hope set! Here's how you get your name in the drawing for the blog candy...leave a comment on today's post AND tell me which Anya stamp is your favorite. Then, check back between now & Thursday for additional chances to get your name in that drawing!! One comment per post please. I'll pick a winner in a random drawing on Thursday, November 6th. Everyone is welcome to play.
This post is just way too long and it's really late (or early, depending on how you want to look at the clock)...so I'm going to be lazy and not include a supply list for today's cards (sorry!). If you have any questions about supplies used for the cards, just email me (youcanstamp@hotmail.com) and I'd be happy to answer your questions! g'nite...thanks for stopping by!!!

It is too difficult to decide. All the Anya's are adorable, but for some odd reason I am drawn to the Mermaid. It may be the colors you used...so relaxing. Thank you for a great blog. I check it daily.

I used to daydream that I was her! :) Thanks so much!
