5K Blog Challenge and First Blog Candy

This is just AWESOME!! I started my blog on April 21st and it already has over 5,000 hits!! You guys ROCK!!!

Thank you so much for all your nice comments about my work!! I am really enjoying this journey!!

To celebrate, I am posting the sketch above as my Blog Challenge.. The sketch is based on this card that I recently made with my favorite Tilda.

For the Blog Candy, I have this little box that I've made with Claudia's instructions a few weeks ago. You can see more photos of the box on my post here. I will fill your box with 20 (!!) stamped images of Tilda (five each of four different designs). I will even ship internationally.

To enter, here is what you need to do..

Make a card using my sketch, post it on your blog and include the link to my blog (please don't forget to leave a comment on my blog under this post with the link to your card..).


Make a card using my sketch and upload it on Splitcoaststampers with EPCSC1 in the keyword section (please don't forget to leave a comment on my blog under this post with the link to your card..).

Don't have a blog and/or can't upload to Spitcoaststampers?? Make a card and email me the photo/s (please don't forget to leave a comment on my blog under this post mentioning your email).

Don't have time to make a card? You can still participate!! Just leave a comment on my blog under this post with any suggestions and/or comments you may have about my blog.

I will draw and determine the winner sometimes after 8 pm PST on Thursday, May 22nd.

Have fun playing!! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!

:) Irina

Hi Irina,

I love your idea. Great!!!! I can't particate because I'm away but I'd love to learn how to make the box.

I had to sign in as a new account to get on the blog. I've done that 3 times with the same names and passwords. Strange.

Keep coming up with new ideas. I love them and of course I love Tilda. I'm jealous but maybe another time.

Sylvia :)

I love your blog Irina! I have you on my Google REader because I like your style. I saved the sketch Idea to do later, right now I am busy with end of the school year stuff! (I'm a teacher) Can't wait to do more stamping/scrapping this summer.

I'm glad I found your blog. I wish I had time to do the sketch today, but I will get to it next week. I'd love to be in on your blog candy drawing. I love the cute way you finish off the inside on your cards. It is fun to see them coordinate with the front. Oh, and I really like the scrapbook pages too. Good close up pictures to see details.I need to put a link on my blog.
