A Blog Candy Blessing

     Goodness!  Another year has almost disappeared and I have so many blessings to be thankful for.  God has been good to me in so many ways.  He's shown mercy, patience, and love beyond measure to me, who am so undeserving of it. 
      I have been blogging almost two years now and have some wonderful friends who have shared that journey with me.  They've been my cheerleaders, team mates, fellow challenge competitors :-), and most of all my friends.  My little blog has right at 400 followers, something I never dreamed would happen.  Thank each and everyone of you for being a part of my daily life.  Your words, help, and camaraderie mean the world to me.
     In honor of this wonderful season of giving, I am offering up a little blog candy.  It's nothing huge, just a few goodies I'd like to share with one of my followers.

  27. Hi Tracy: I am happy to follow here and on YouTube. My blessing this year is I have been recovering from a kidney illness for a year now and I am finally starting to feel like my ol' self again. While I have been home recuperating God has given me the ability to be creative and find many amazing individuals here on the internet to connect with and share stories. I am blessed with family, friends and to have God in my life.

  34. Hi Tracy!
    I am new to blogging and so am only your follower as from today.

    Would also love to win some of your candy!
    Love Pearl x

  35. Hi, what a great give-a-way. I've always loved cross-stitch, knitting and sewing, but I'm rather new to the art of paper crafting. All the papers, punches, stamps and inks are fascinating to me. Many thanks to my friend Larisa in Russia for introducing me to these "candies" and to you lovely blog. I have left my link and become a follower so I hope I win these beautiful items. Merry Christmas!

  36. Tracy your cards are beautiful. I feel mine are pretty plain, for some reason I can't seem to get the hang of mixing patterns, and adding flowers and ribbons. Don't critique your cards so hard, I would love to make them like you do.
    I'm a follower and hope you will stop by my blog too.
    Smiles Sher
