Happy Winter Cards and More Blog Candy

Karen here today and I am sharing two square winter cards I made with stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning are below and now you have even more choices of what you can win!
But first- the winner of last Thursday’s blog candy is  Betty!   Here is her winning comment from the CBP blog: ”Love the cards especially the flowers on the red and green card they are such an inspiration to we who have just started to do cards in 2012.
Betty, please email me or CrackerboxPalace your address and your choice of which stamps you want (see your options below), so we can get you the stamps you have won.
The funny fellow featured in the card above just cracks me up. This card would be perfect to send to someone like my sister who winters in Arizona. I stamped him and did some coloring and paper piecing, then cut him out with a circle Nestabilities die. I sponged the edges and placed him on a grey square card under a strip of snowflakes (Martha Stewart border punch.) The sentiment is perfect for this picture and was stamped and cut out with another nestie die. I added a few extra snowflakes to complete the card. 
My second card features a darling snowman duo all wrapped up. I left their wrap white because I was thinking it was an igloo. But now I look at it again, it is a wrap and could be any color you want to make it. Once again I did a little coloring and cut out with a Nestabilities circle die, layering onto a scalloped circle. The paper is a fun flannel or sweatshirt look two sided paper by We R Memory Keepers. I did a little stitching with my Scor-bug and a thin black marker and added the sentiment to complete the card.
So would you like to win the stamps featured on one of today’s cards or your choice of another CBP stamp? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:
Vicky or Karen will post a card or two every Thursday on both blogs. All you need to do is to leave a comment on either blog and if you leave a comment on both blogs you will have a double chance to win. We hope you also want to 'follow' the blogs. The following Wednesday a name will be picked at random and the winner will receive:
The featured stamps that we used in one of the cards that were posted,
OR you can pick out a stamp that is worth up to $10.00 and email us your choice
OR Vicky will email you a coupon code so you can go shopping at Crackerbox Palace store for your choice of the stamp(s) you would like with a $10.00 coupon.

For a Bonus: if you use the blog candy stamps and post it on your blog, Splitcoast or somewhere else you will be able to choose another free stamp. So make sure you check out one of our blogs on Thursday! The winner will have 2 weeks to contact Karen or Vicky.

So leave us a comment for a chance to win and come back and see us again next week!
