Yippee! Blog Candy Winner!

Wow!  On Saturday, I offered a Blog Candy Giveaway that consists of nine handmade cards that I’ve shared with you here on my blog.  I simply asked you to share your favorite thing about spring, and you showed up in droves to respond.  I couldn’t be happier with the response.  Thank you!

Before I share the winner, I’d like to take a moment to discuss some of the responses to “ONE WORD that describes what you love most about Spring.”  While forms of the word “renew” seemed to be most popular (I understand that), I definitely learned a couple of things from some of your responses.

  • Snowlessness.  I learned that some of you had lots and lots of snow this winter.  I hadn’t heard anything about it on the news or social medial.
  • Peepers.  This term is new to me, but it popped up a couple of times.  I’ve always thought of peepers as reading glasses – and that’s certainly now what you love about Spring, so I Googled it.  In the interest of educating others, peepers are frogs.  I get it now – it’s a lovely sound to fill the silence at night.
  • My Favorite?  Since you asked, I’m really enjoying the trees right now and how they are filling out with beautiful, vibrant leaves.  My home is built on an incline, and the view out back is solid green now.  It’s gorgeous.

Well, folks, we have a randomly-selected winner- and that winner is Donna P.  Here’s Donna’s response:donna p


Here’s what Donna P is going to receive from me in the mail this week (along with corresponding envelopes):

Stampin' Up!, Brian King
