The candyman can cause he mixes it with love...

...and makes the world taste good!

Are yall ready for some Blog Candy? This is a celebration of my 200th post...man can I yap or what? *wink*

So here's the scoop. Leave a comment on this post and guess my birthday (hint: it's coming up!) and on January 1st I will pick a winner from all the comments using random.org. No need to guess the right one, but the first person to comment with the right day will win a special little prize.

The big prize? Wonderful Wishes Remixed courtesy of Julee at Verve Visual!! This is the clear version, and I'm tellin yall, you will NOT be disappointed. This set is amazing and the quality is AWESOME!!!



I will leave this post at the top until Jan. 1st, and probably won't post a ton until then, as I'll be spending time with my family as most of you are.

So to recap: Leave a comment, guess my birthday, and please number your posts to help me out. Then check back on January 1st for the winner!

Thanks for a fun year and for listening to me blab! Hugs!

#11 - I was going to guess Dec 24 because that's my youngest son's b-day. But you posted on Dec 24 and said it was "coming up". Then I was going to guess Dec. 25th because that's my oldest son's b-day. But, someone else had already guessed that.

All that to say, I'm going with Jan 2. :-)
