Blog CaNdY to Celebrate My Blog Refresh!


I'm celebrating my blog refresh by showing this card, which I have named, "Oh, Happy Day!" I've been wanting to change up my blog for awhile, and I discovered that Patsy Waggoner, a very talented Stampin' Up! Demo, also designs blogs. She used her expertise to plug in my designs, which I created using My Digital Studio. 

I am NOT an MDS expert, but the banner and buttons were super easy to design. All the tools are in MDS, I just needed to know what the pixel parameters were and Patsy was so wonderful to help me do that part. She knows HTML code, so we made quite a pair. My blog looks brighter and cleaner, I think. I hope you like it.


Please leave your comments about my card or my new look and you will be entered to win this BLOG CANDY!



Blog Candy Rules:
1. ONE entry by comment per person on TODAY's post. (I moderate all of my comments, so you will see them appear after I approve them).
2. Blog Candy will be mailed to a US address only.
3. Winner will be chosen by random drawing on Sunday, January 19th, 6PM PST. Items mailed Tuesday, January 21st.
4. Winner must email me by Noon Monday, January 20th PST.
5. If first picked winner does not respond, I will pick a second winner. 
6. Winner agrees that their name (by comment moniker) will be used in my Blog Post.

**UPDATE: I have fixed my dates to match the days of the week in #3 and #4 above. So sorry for the mixup!!
