In February I offered some of the 2009 SU! SAB sets for Blog Candy.  Well I’ve got one more of the “Polka Dot Punches” set to give away.  But this time I’m also including a brand new pack of the “Delicate Dots” Designer Series Paper AND the “Ribbon Bundle” of 5/8″ Certainly Celery poly-twill and So Saffron grosgrain ribbons!

The Blog Candy is in celebration of one of my best days ever!  I’ve just gotten home from spending Spring Break in Mexico, and I finally got to do something that I’ve wanted to do for years!  I swam with and got hugs and kisses from dolphins and sea lions! It was such a joy to play with these wonderful creatures!!
