A Candy Winner and A Card for Christian

Well as some of you know our  friend Betty from Simply Betty Stamps has just found out her son Christian has stage one throat cancer, as you can probably imagine this is a tough time for them. .

Sweet Erika at Crafty Sprouts is having a special Challenge that will last until Saturday October 22. All you have to do for this challenge is link up a card (any theme, colors, etc.) for Christian. Lets lift his spirits and let him know we are all thinking about him. You can send your card here.

She will be picking one random winner from this challenge to receive these two stamps from the new Jude and the Rockers fall line! Aren't they cute!

I wanted to send him something for a 17 year old boy, and then I got out my hippie paper from Little Yellow Bicycle and added some peace & love thoughts.  I bought the digi from "The Greeting Farm" Get well Christian, we are all rooting for you!
Now...wasn't there something else I was supposed to announce today...hum...what was it?  what could it be? Oh yeah..the winner of my big ol' pile of Halloween Candy is....Sunshine Honeybee! www.CreatedbySunshineHoneyBee.blogspot.com Congrats!  I will be sending you an e-mail soon.  If you didn't win, don't be sad, I have a surprise sponsor who will be giving away something really sweet very soon so be sure to check back often!  Hugs!
