1000 sheets of paper giveway!

Check this out! athousandsheetsofpaper

Today is a special day here at the ol' A thousand sheets of paper blog. No, it's not quite the one year anniversary, as that was on July 16th. Instead I thought it would be fun to combine that celebration with another crazy milestone that I've been keeping track of and finally hit this past week... you see, since I started making cards and posting them here I've been keeping track of the number of different sheets of pattern paper that I cut into for my cards just to see how long it would take to get to 1000. I'm excited to say that it only took a couple weeks over my year anniversary to get there! I told you this was crazy! LOL!

Crazy or not though, I'm in the mood to celebrate (and clear out some paper) so I've got A THOUSAND 6x6 sheets of paper that I'm giving away! Wanna see what 1000 sheets of paper looks like? Take a look-see...

That's a lot of paper, huh? Perhaps just a bit crazy to send all to one person, so I'm breaking it apart into five candies of 200 sheets each. And the fun doesn't stop there! I couldn't celebrate a wonderful, exciting, surprising and simply amazing year of stamping and blogging without throwing some stamps into the mix as well! So I have collected stamps from all of my most favorite companies into one MEGA CANDY! Wanna know who all is included? There is:

•Sweet November Coral Reefweaver, Chanter Heartsong, Coriander Fairy and Darby & Penelope

•CC Designs Lil Emma Bug, Cherry Emma and Halloween Hansel

•The Greeting Farm Miss Anya Dressy set, Fairy Chloe and Fairy Eva

•Tickled Pink Lil Lolita Ivy and 60's Mod Ivy

•Simply Betty Stamps Lola and Miller

•Stamping Bella Maisy Ketto

•Christy Croll Appley bowl Huggabug (since I couldn't include one of her fab Tiddly inks digis)

•My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Fairy Girl

•Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl "Just a girl"

•Kraftin' Kimmie Drucilla and lots of little extras

•Lili of the Valley Tiptoe fairy

Wondering what you need to do for a chance to win all of these plus some yummy paper? Well, because this is pretty big and I'm pretty excited about it, I really want to spread the word sooooo... in order to be eligible to win the grand prize you have to post about the 1000 sheets blog candy on your own blog (feel free to right click and use the paper photo above or even the stamp photo below), linking directly back to this post. Once you've done that, just leave a comment here and you will be entered... easy peasy! Like always, I will ship anywhere so all are welcome to play! :)

I will leave this candy open through Friday, September 3rd then random generator will pick a winner and I will announce on Saturday, September 4th.

Smeared and Smudged challenge

Here's a card I made for Smeared and Smudged "oh the horror" challenge.
It was to use this image or inspiration from the movie to make a project..
I used the "fairy tale" part for mine..
I have a huge bag of dried flowers from a craft store, I picked them up for like three bucks at a thrift store. I decided I would use some :) I added some lace and ribbon and pebbles for bling. It's hard to tell, but the letters are glittery also. I like how this one turned out.

Oh Alice challenge

I made this little cutey for alice in wonderland challenge chapter-27-prizes-for-dodo I added some pebbles and flowers for bling :)

Smeared and Smudged blog hop!

Good morning!! Hope you are finding our hop tons of fun! I made this little cutey in a hurry, so it might not be the best, but it was tons of fun.
My lil grumps are "hiding" from you. They don't like to be seen. They like to watch you, but never let them see you looking, lol.
I made an explosion box, added a few flowers and lace.

Enjoy the hop. The ladies @ Smeared And Smudged are a wonderful group of awesomeness. Everyone is so talented. I love being a part of this group!

I dolled up my lil image and added some vintage lace and a golden fan charm.

Macabre Monday Challenge

I created this little card for haunted design house hdh050-foul-flutterings challenge. I stickled the bat and distressed the cardstock behind it. Im not sure what it could be for, but it is kinda cute, kinda creepy.

Finally finished it!

This little thing took me almost a week! It was hard to find time to work on it, but it's finally done. Take a peek on my e-bay Halloween In Wonderland
