Blog Candy Winners!

Thats right I said winners! Since I had such a great turn out for the blog candy I decided to give two lucky people some Blog Candy and the winners are:  

 Riley's Custom Creations said...

My first carts that I bought were From My Kitchen and New Arrival, which I bought on Black Friday 2009 along with my black E from WalMart. I didn't use my Cricut until well into 2010, and my first project was the sample card that is in the handbook of Pooh and Friends. I gave it to our babysitter along with her payment.

You have won a second prize!
Will be in touch with you via email to let you know what you have won

Valentine Pencil Toppers

I periodically get Newsletters from Fiskar about projects and giveaways and I came across this project from one of  Fiskar's Designers Patti Milazzo...Valentine Pencil Toppers they are so cute and super easy to make... I just had to make them! Instead of using  a Fiskar Punch I used my Cricut to cut out some of the shapes.....Will be adding them to some Valentine goody bags! Here is the link for the instructions on how to make them....... Pencil Toppers.......Happy Crafting Everyone.....
