It's an Anniversary Birthday Party!!

I just celebrated my 1 year anniversary as a Stampin' UP! demonstrator in January, and  the Black Shadow Creations blog will be 1 year old on February 22nd!  Where did the time go?!

Since I'm in such a celebratory mood, I decided that I would do my first ever BLOG CANDY!! I have been fortunate enough to win some wonderful blog candy from some fabulous blogs; so I thought that in the spirit of sharing the love, I would celebrate my anniversary and my blog's birthday with a gift!

and here is my first ever Blog Candy...

Island Indigo Baker's TwineCalypso Coral Baker's TwineCherry Cobbler Bakers Twine - by Stampin' Up!Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine

Early Espresso Bakers Twine - by Stampin' Up!Pool Party Baker's TwineWisteria Wonder Baker's TwineWhite Bakers Twine - by Stampin' Up!

No... It's not just one package of Stampin' UP! Bakers Twine, not two, not three...but it is the entire collection of colors of SU bakers twine!!! Woo! Hoo!  That's right EIGHT packages of baker's twine!

While I welcome people to follow my blog, and would love it if you wanted to,  I'm not making it a requirement of the blog candy.  If you like what you see on my blog and want to be a fellow stalker, then you are more than welcome to join.  I may not be the most innovative crafter, but I like to think I'm at least a little fun (my kids don't think so, but they don't count here!)!  But I digress... 

Here are the Official Rules for winning the blog candy...

1. Leave me a comment on this post.
2. If you have a blog, please post it in your comment. Like I said before, I love to blog stalk!
3. Spread the love!  Let others know about my blog candy by linking back to me on your blog.
4.  Make sure I have a way of getting in touch with you. You can't win if I can't find you!!

I will be drawing the winner on February 29th and will post the winners name on March 1st!
