Glittery blog candy



A wee bit of blog candy for all my patient readers! I am still here...just been doing a little sewing this week instead of a lot of stamping! I do have a really fun project to show you tomorrow for  3 Clover's Thursday Challenge though...don't miss it!

  I am at almost 50,000 thousand hits! Wowsers! Who would have thunk? I want to thank all of you who come and visit and  take the time to comment! I just get so tickled at every comment! This blog candy is definitely Christmas orientated with lots of glitter from Martha Stewart, Eskimo Kisses DP, pearls, and a Holly Ribbons Cuttlebug embossing folders. I will pick a winner on Sunday, December 6th--so you have a few days to enter. Please enter by leaving a comment on this blog entry and tell me about your favorite Christmas music. Who sings that tune that gets you into the spirit of the season?

I always stamp to music and love all my Christmas tunes!

If you are a follower through blogger or through feedblitz, please include which one  in your comment and I will enter your name twice!

Pin It!

50,000 hits! That is fantastic! Yippee for you!!!

My favorite Christmas music is an album by Glen Miller called, "In the Christmas Mood". It is so lively and happy. I put it on while we were trimming the tree the other day and the next thing I knew, we were all dancing. Even my teenagers love it!

Congratulations again! I just love your blog and am really happy for you.

Hugs,
Snoopy

This is wonderful candy Sue! Thanks for the chance to win it! BTW, I have another HM stamp up for grabs on my post tonight!

My all time favorite Christmas song is "Oh Holy Night" by anybody. It has such a great range, and there have been so many who have recorded it. I also love the more contemporary "Mary Did You Know" by Clay Aiken.

I am a follower on blogger.

Thanks again Sue! Best, Curt

My favorite Christmas song is "Mary Did You Know?" I think it is best when Kenny Rogers sings it.

oh, sparkles! I guess my favourite song would be 'All I want for Christmas is you' not because the song is particulary great but it brings back some great memories of my friends and I when we were younger. I also lobe 'White Christmas' hearing it makes it feel like it's christmas time.
I just saw your Elmo cards in the last post, they are adorable. my boys kiss Elmo when he comes on tv, he is a family favourite.
Oh, and I am a follower on Blogger!
congrats on the 50,000!

I always love the Perry Como album that tells the story of Christmas. It's not a single song but a total package! THEN then is the christmas song. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. One of my favs. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Happy Little Crafter said...

Thank you for all of the wonderful inspiration throughout the year, Sue! Your posts always make me smile -- and this one is no exception! My favorite Christmas songs this year are David Foster's "Carol of the Bells" and Andy William's "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" -- when that last one comes on, I feel like doing my HAPPY DANCE!

Our Little Inspirations said...

Congrats and 50k hits!! I love all Christmas music and love the festive ones most of all, if I had to pick one it would be We Wish you a Merry Christmas. I have been a follower or yours in blogger for some time. Thank you for the to win.

Kimmi said...

Wow Sue - Congratulations on so many hits! That's amazing!

I'm ashamed to say the name of the artist of the song I love! Its Chris De Burgh lol I'm only 26 and some people think I'm crazy when I tell them which song gets me into the Christmas spirit! Its called 'A Spaceman Came Travelling'. I just love the melody and the back up is just fantastic.

Well, there goes my street cred hehe

Thank you so much for offering some gorgeous Candy. I found you on my Blogger Feed. Been a follower of yours for a while :D

Hugs

connie said...

congrats on the hits! I follow your blog. My favorite christmas music is Harry Connick Jr Christmas CD.

Sue said...

WOW, 50,000 Hits, congrats. My favorite Christmas song is Silent Night by anyone. It's the last thing we do at Midnight Mass at our church and they turn out all the lights except on the alter and we each have a lighted candle, it is so moving.

I follow you on blogger!

stampers7 said...

One of my favorite Christmas CD's is John Denver & the Muppets. When my girls were young, we would listen to it & sing along. They're grown now w/ children of their own & Memaw (me) gets to listen & sing along w/ my grandchildren now!! What fun!
"Mary Did You Know", by Mark Lowrey, is one of my other fav Christmas songs!!
Congratulations on your wonderful blog!

Jackie said...

Wow.. congratulations! Your blog is great and I always come by for card inspiration. I would love to have your lovely blog candy to make Christmas cards with!

My favourite Christmas song would have to be the old-fashioned "White Christmas". I live in Asia and a white Christmas is a childhood dream.

Hi Sue! I just had to enter since you have gathered some of my faves! My fav song is "Il est ne, the divine enfant". It's French Canadian and I had to sing it in choir growing up in my Catholic school. It's light and delicate:

THANKS for the chance to win!

Larissa said...

HI Sue

Congrats on the 50.00 hits! So well deserved! :)

My favorite christmas music? I can't say I have something that is really a christmas favorite, but I have something that I really like that is connected to christmas. Each year just before christmas a Dutch radio station starts with a week that is for a good cause. They build a glass house in a dutch city and 3 dj's stay a week in the house. You have to pay money for your favorite song and that way they hope to get a lot of money for the good cause. That week is always really great and that is my favorite christmas music.:) The glass house is during the night also on tv so you can watch it all night. Real fun!

Hugs,
Larissa

Ps, I am a follower. ;)
