200th Post! Celebrate with Blog Candy!

Well, I wanted to do a blog candy contest for my 100th post, but somehow I never did get around to it. So, I had to wait for my 200th, and before I knew it, it's here!
First things first, I have a card to share with you. One of the new Country Cousines images from Sugar Nellie. Aren't they beautiful!!? Also paired it up with the new Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper collection. I love Cosmo Cricket. Probably my all time favorite paper company.
AND--finally onto the blog candy! I'm giving away a set of the Classic Scallop Small Rectangle Nestabilities and two clear stamp sets from Inkadinkado. To enter just leave a comment on this post by midnight (Eastern US time) Thursday, June 4th 2009, telling me what your favorite paper company is. I will pick a random comment Friday morning. Spread the word to your friends!
Thank you to all for visiting my blog, and Good Luck!
Stamps: Sugar Nellie, Papertrey Ink
Ink: Palette, Distress
Paper: Bristol vellum, Cosmo Cricket, PTI, SU
Accessories: SU ribbon, PTI button, colored pencils, OMS, sewing machine, Nestabilities
