BLOG CANDY STENCILS!!! BLOG CANDY STENCILS!!!!!



**Blog Candy Update!!  - I have a few more items to my Blog Candy - 

A 6x6 StencilGirl Stencil called Bird In Window by Pam Carriker, a box of Brasilian chocolates, a Brasilian Scrapbooking magazine called Guia do Scrapbooking, which means Guide to Scrapbooking.  It's in portuguese but you can get great ideas with the pictures and layouts they give.  

And I have added a 6" x 6" Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate!!! 
---------------------------------------------

Hello everyone!  My first Blog Candy post!! 

Long story short - in November, when StencilGirl had their big Black Friday sale, I placed an order.  Due to a glitch in their system (but in our favor) the same order was shipped to me - twice.  Since I did not pay for one of the orders, I emailed John at StencilGirl and he told me to keep them and offer them up as blog candy at a later date.  Hence....this BLOG CANDY post!! 

All you have to do is leave me a comment on this blog post and then follow me or subscribe to me.  How do you do this, you ask?  Well there are two ways...on the left side of my blog is a button that says "Join This Site".  Just click on that button and follow the prompts.  Or, click on the "Subscribe Via Email Here", enter your email to get my blog notices, and you are good to go. 

On Easter Sunday I will pick the winner.  This Blog Candy Contest is open to ANYONE, ANYWHERE, in the whole wide world!!  I want the world to know about StencilGirl!!  So, tell your friends, post this to your blog, Facebook page, Tweet about it, tell your neighbors, the babysitter, even the cashier at the supermarket!!  LOL

What's in the Blog Candy?  So far, the Blog Candy consists of the following StencilGirl stencils - 9x12 Wing Stencil by Pam Carriker, 9x12 Diamonds Large by Andrew Borloz, 9x12 Gears by Mary Beth Shaw, 6x6 Waves by Terri Stegmiller, 6x6 Window Ledger by Pam Carriker, and a 4x4 Mini Sq. Clover Leaf by Mary Beth Shaw.  But...the more followers or subscribers that I get, I might just keep adding stuff.  Maybe even some Brasilian chocolates?  LOL



If you have any questions just leave a comment here or email me at michaeltrent@gmail.com.

  2. Oh Yeah Michael!!!! I need some Brasilian Chocolate! My daughter spent 6 weeks in Brazil in the mid-2000's.... She came home making rice and beans...super delicious... and some chocolate balls that I cannot remember the name of...but she had the recipe and the knowledge (and my support) so she made those little 'riches' many many times! Yum!!!! So glad you are on board with us at StencilGirl! xoxo
