It's that time again - BLOG CANDY!

Alma from The Cat's Pajamas has donated some Blog Candy for us DT members to offer in drawings next week! Woo hoo! And first up - is me! Here's what you have to do:

Just leave a comment by midnight on Sunday night, telling me what themes of stamps you'd like to see more of in the stamping world - flowers, sentiments, alphabets, whatever you think! I will draw the name of the lucky winner on Monday morning...and that person will receive a set of the brand new Cowboy stamps! Yee haw! Good luck everyone!


Cathy M January 9, 2008 at 11:24 PM  

Count me in on ths sweet stamp set candy! I just love all the stamps, but would like to see more manly man sets and maybe some related to stamping itself.
Thanks for a chance.

Jana Weaver January 10, 2008 at 2:20 AM  

Ohhh...cowboy candy! ;-) As for sets, maybe more travel sets - I need more for my European scrapping!! :-)

jill January 10, 2008 at 3:57 AM  

Doing a little blog catch up. You've been busy! he Love Machine card is great.

As far as stamp sets go I would love to see single words in different fonts and time pieces (clocks, watches, hour glass, etc)

Angel Wilde January 10, 2008 at 5:57 AM  

I am always up for sentiments. And backgrounds! Thank you for the chance at some GREAT blog goodies!

JenMarie January 10, 2008 at 6:28 AM  

Birds! They seem to be getting popular.
And 'French' like European.

Deborah January 10, 2008 at 6:44 AM  

Backgrounds! I use these more than any others.

Linda January 10, 2008 at 6:47 AM  

Oh fun, blog candy! I'm going to second more masculine stamps.

CAKVD January 10, 2008 at 7:00 AM  

I would love some TCP cowboy stamps!!! I think the stamping world could use some yoga themed stamps with calm and relaxing sentiments. It'd be great for scrapbook pages as well as cards for stressed out loved ones.

Aimeslee January 10, 2008 at 7:04 AM  

Oooh, Cowboy Candy! Yum, Ya'll! LOL Well, I have a huge number of stamps, so at this point I'm mostly looking for sheet sets that give me an entire coordinated group of images and phrases to use on cards, which is where I use stamps the most. I like a cover phrase, an inside sentiment, and larger and smaller images. And I like them humorous, too. I also look for serious sets structured the same way, for sympathy cards. These are really hard to find, coordinated ones. Hope that answered your question!

Pegg S January 10, 2008 at 7:09 AM  

I'm very excited to see the new sets! My first sets were the Holiday clear sets which stamp BEAUTIFULLY and I had such good customer service! I would love to see more sentiments and graphics -- I love the designs that you already have, but want to see more! I would love to see these in clear *sets* as well!

Sarah C. January 10, 2008 at 7:30 AM  

That card is too cute! Love the little boot on the scalloped circles & the quote. :) <- brought a smile to my face

As far as stamps go, my preference is sentiments. Thanks for the chance for the blog candy!

Melissas January 10, 2008 at 7:39 AM  

Thanks for sharing! I love stamps with flowers, but also sayings. Not just sentiments, but quotes or funny things to stamp onto cards.

HeyHeyPaula January 10, 2008 at 7:53 AM  

I would love to see more masculine sets and also sentiment sets, ones that have an outside and inside sentiment that go together. Thanks for the chance to win some cowboy candy!

Rosella January 10, 2008 at 7:55 AM  

Fun! There is so much out there, but flowers and butterflies are always good. The more the merrier!

Susan Liles susiestampalot January 10, 2008 at 7:57 AM  

oh i love cowboys!!! i'm from texas!! teehee! i think the stamping world could use more sentiment sets that are all-inclusive, so you don't have to buy every one of them to get all the holidays sayings.

Dana January 10, 2008 at 8:27 AM  

love it!!!

Cindy Vernon January 10, 2008 at 8:32 AM  

Oh, I want to win! I think that I would like to see more stamps that are inside and outside stamps so a sentiment for the outside with a corresponding stamp for the inside of the card.

Anonymous January 10, 2008 at 9:42 AM  

I'd like to see more nature themed stamps and also more stamps for sympathy cards and birthday cards which are NOT cutesy. Thanks so much. I'd love to win!
Mary Puskar

Kimmie Sue January 10, 2008 at 9:42 AM  

Very cute card! I'm a dork and I love robots, so I'm going to have to say ROBOTS! I'd love to see more stamps of ROBOTS!! Did I mention robots? Teehee.

Darcey January 10, 2008 at 9:47 AM  

Hi! I would love to see more calender stamps. Maybe one stamp that would have the days in a circle and the month and year in the middle, but I want to be able to change the month and year. This way one stamp would work perfectly for everything.

Amy January 10, 2008 at 9:49 AM  

Well, I like so many types of stamps, it's hard to know what I'd like more of. I would definitely like some stamps of human cross country skiers. I only own two small ones, and haven't seen any others for sale. A few Yoga ones would be nice also.

Thanks for the info on the new TCP stamps!

Amber Porter January 10, 2008 at 10:55 AM  

What great blog candy!! I would love to see more girly girly stamps (cutesy and chic ones)!!

Annelies January 10, 2008 at 10:58 AM  

For my scrapbooking I would choose travel-related stamps or swirls. To make cards I prefer flowers!

plg January 10, 2008 at 11:39 AM  

I would like to see more "quote" or "words" along with maybe some guy stuff!!!!
TFS this with us Toni!!!!
Make sure you pick me!!!! ;)

Lori Mueller January 10, 2008 at 11:40 AM  

I'm so glad to see this post as it's been awhile since I've looked at Cats Pajama's! There are some stamps that I 'need' to buy. Thanks for enabling me! One thing I have a hard time finding is Liquid Applique...wouldn't that be so cute to go with the Penguin and Polar stamps/sets?

melissa January 10, 2008 at 12:44 PM  

super cute cowboy candy ;)

I would like to see more sentiments, and european/french style stamps

Jennifer-G January 10, 2008 at 12:51 PM  

Awesome candy!! I would like to see more humorous sayings and also more realistic truck/construction sets - NOT cutsey ones. My DH is in constructionI have 2 boys who love to help, and my parents built their own house. I have so many uses for those kind of stamps! Thanks for the chance to win!

Scrapbook Mama January 10, 2008 at 1:05 PM  

Well I have a thing for stamps with swirls I love them because I love the look it gives a card or a page I'm working on especially if I emboss it.. OHH HEAVEN.. lol


Jennifer H. January 10, 2008 at 1:39 PM  

I would love to see more boy themed stamp sets. I've seen some really cute ones but there could always be more. :)

Jacqueline's Craft Nest January 10, 2008 at 2:00 PM  

I think there are so many stamps on the market that there is enough choice for anyone, anywhere!!
Love your blog candy offer too!

Vanessa January 10, 2008 at 4:19 PM  

I would love to see more NCAA, professional sports, or even local highschool/gradeschool rubber stamps that have the team mascot, name, etc. You could make so many really cool personalized gifts.

SmilynStef January 10, 2008 at 5:48 PM  

Maybe more vehicles ... tricyle, bicycle, pogo stick, cars, trucks.

Cat January 10, 2008 at 6:04 PM  

what a COOL candy offer! honestly, i LOVE flower stamps, but we see them all over. i'd really like to see more examples using cute stamps but in more classic [not plain or cutesy] displays.


Anonymous January 10, 2008 at 6:29 PM  

I would have to say preteen and teen boy stamps. Maybe something other than sports but I don't know what for sure. I love these cowboy stamps!!
nancy l.

Anonymous January 10, 2008 at 6:50 PM  

OHHH, cowboy stamps, how fun!! Yeehaw!! :) I would like to see more sentimental quote stamps...they're a great addition to any card! :) Thanks for the chance!

Sharon in NE January 10, 2008 at 7:28 PM  

YAY Toni!!! Okay, here is MY opinion only as it relates to TCP. To me...Sprinkles has always been like Ann Marie of "That Girl" and Poochie is Donald, so its hard for me to think of them outside of the 60s era. (btw, I'd like more 60s fashions.)
I also liked the 50s "Annette" beach theme, and I would like to see an addition to that such as Sprinkles as a carhop and/or a diner, etc.

Finally, my other subject matter I am interested in is art deco and the roaring 20s. (love those fashions!)

Kelly's Artistic Journaling January 10, 2008 at 7:51 PM  

As I have two boys - almost teenagers, I would love to see more "Boyish" stamps that I could scrapbook with. I have seen the cowboys and really like them too, but I would like a set with a multi-theme eg. pirate, cowboy, superhero, fireman etc., something for boys with creative little minds!
Thanks for sharing.

Debbie January 11, 2008 at 12:14 AM  

Blog candy, yum! Lately I love swirls and flourishes on stamps, and new alphabets are great too!

Laura January 11, 2008 at 1:06 AM  

I would love to see more robot type of stamps :). They are always so cute!

Allison January 11, 2008 at 2:05 AM  

I would like something where boys and girls are together...this would be great for my kids invitations and scrapping! Thanks Toni!

Alyssa January 11, 2008 at 6:10 AM  

I would love to see a stamp set with 50's style tattoo images. It would be really cool to have a traditional cherry blossom, swallow, gypsy head, etc. That would be VERY different; something I haven't seen anywhere! Thanks for the opportunity!

Janet B January 11, 2008 at 7:49 AM  

Definitely more sentiments. I just love those ones that are punny, and inspirational.

Janet B

Lorien Clark January 11, 2008 at 12:18 PM  

Geeze I don't know. I haven't found anything I am lacking in the stamping world. Maybe more chocolate sets. Cause I love chocolate!!

Beth M January 11, 2008 at 12:51 PM  

I would love to see more masculine sets. Thanks for the chance to win!

Sandi January 11, 2008 at 1:37 PM  

Count me in for the cowboy set! I would like to see more inside/outside sentiment sets for cards.
Thanks and I hope I win!!

Anonymous January 11, 2008 at 2:24 PM  

I would love to see more stamp sets to scrap toddler type scrapbook pages with. I've got a 3 yr old boy and tons of pictures but am having a hard time scrapping them. Thanks so much

Ghazal( January 11, 2008 at 4:19 PM  

Great card, love the sentiment! I would love to see more funny sentiments with fancy fonts, and of course more masculine stamps.
Count me in on your giveaway, love the cowboys!

Anonymous January 11, 2008 at 4:54 PM  

Count me in on this one. I don't have a cowboy stamp set and I'd love to own one. I'd love to see some "cowish" stamps on the market.


Linda SS January 11, 2008 at 7:10 PM  

That's so generous of you and Alma - I LOVE the Cat's Pajamas stamps! I would like to see more stamps that would appeal to teenagers and boys in particular. That age group seems to be most ignored and I've had a hard time coming up with card ideas for my nephews and niece.

Anonymous January 11, 2008 at 7:36 PM  

I'd love to see more stamps that would appeal to my little guy like robots, aliens, and wizards. I'd also enjoy more food and drink themed stamps like sushi.

Tanis January 11, 2008 at 8:43 PM  

Definitely sentiments. But sentiments that can be a feature on a card (decorative) Green Grass Card Sayings stamps. LOVE these!

Lisa January 11, 2008 at 8:47 PM  

I'd love to see some stamps of technology like computers & accessories, cell phones, ipods, etc. How about Sprinkle or Poochie doing more hobbies/crafts like using scissors or stamping?

I just bought some more TCP stamps. I think they're so cute!

leenda January 11, 2008 at 8:52 PM  

Yummy blog candy! I would like to see more flowers & sentiments.

jo-ann January 11, 2008 at 10:45 PM  

awesome blog candy! i'd like to see sets with tea stuff on them! cups, pots etc!

joybear January 12, 2008 at 12:21 AM  

Oh what fun stamps and a super cute card!!! I would love to see more "cute" the penguins..a search for them is what lead me to your blog.

Johannes January 12, 2008 at 1:43 AM  

Thanks for sharing the blog candy. I would like more stamps for men. Because it is difficult with cards for men. Best wishes Susanne from munich/germany

Cris Z January 12, 2008 at 4:29 AM  

I'm always looking for more coffee and cocktail related stamps, especially the sayings that go with them. Can't wait for the release of the new Cat's pajamas. Just love those stamps!

A Webb Of Creations January 12, 2008 at 12:25 PM  

Love the candy giveaway. I would like to see more images to watercolor and sayings for inside a card, not just one liners but several lines. Thanks for the chance.


Anonymous January 12, 2008 at 12:52 PM  

How fun to have some "cowboy" blog candy! :) I would love to see more baby themed stamps.
Dana K.

Anonymous January 12, 2008 at 3:25 PM  

Firstly, thanks so much for your lovely comments on my blog recently!

re: stamps - definitely 'masculine' stamps would be a big addition I think!

Lesley January 12, 2008 at 7:31 PM  

Like many other posters, I'd love to see more masculine stamps (although the men in my life aren't in to the fishing and sailing that seems to be prevalent in the stamping world, LOL!) Maybe more generic like timepieces, keys and classical/ancient construction. I need all the help I can get in this department!

Linda (LSN on SCS) January 12, 2008 at 9:02 PM  

Super cute card! After much thought, I would love to see Poochie and Sprinkle with sporting type themes (i.e. Hockey, football, baseball, etc.). I think these would be super cute!


Anonymous January 12, 2008 at 9:41 PM  

thanks for the great sneak peek at the new stamps. For TCP, I'd like to see an alphabet set in their cool fonts they use on their sentiments.


Tracy H January 13, 2008 at 6:21 AM  

I LUFF sentiment stamps. I buy soooo many of them. I was initially drawn to TCP for the CAT of course. But I stayed because everything was so fresh and fun.

I REALLY like the TCP font style used on so much of the stamps like "What part of meow.." and "Have a cool yule".

I like funny (or punny)sentiments, quirky, clevah...all the cool and swanky stuff TCP is doing. JUST Gimme more ;)

Counting down the days until Jan 19!

the scrappy chick January 13, 2008 at 9:32 AM  

OOOHH! I love the new cowboy set!! alma does a great job with everything! anything with Sprinkle and Poochie would be fun, but I can't think of anything new off the top of my head.

slyzoo January 13, 2008 at 10:31 AM  

I would like to see cute children/teen sport sets. I have kids in soccer, karate, and gymnastics. The only cute stamps are for soccer.


Tracy January 13, 2008 at 10:42 AM  

Ohhhh what a GREAT question. I would always love to see more kitty stamps. I love anything that has to do with cats.

I LOVE these cowboy images. I don't have many masculine stamps, so these would be very happy living in my stamp area. LOL! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

Darlene L January 13, 2008 at 11:27 AM  

I have been looking for some "kitchen" stamps, ya know a range, fridge, pots and pans to put on the range, casserole dishes--something along those lines. Thanks for the opp to win candy--dd lives in TX and would love those boots--that is if I decided to share. Darlene L

stampin_melissa January 13, 2008 at 12:15 PM  

I'd LOVE to win some cowboy stamps! Which lead me to my answer for your question, I'd like to see masculine stamps! I have a son so I'm always on the lookout for some!

Rachel Hope January 13, 2008 at 12:49 PM  

I always love more sentiment sets....can't get enough! And maybe some "inside of the card" sentiments

salusa63 January 13, 2008 at 12:54 PM  

How exciting!! I am always looking for new masculine stamps. There are only so many cards I can make for the men in my life with trees and leaves!!! Some nice vintage style cars and pickup would be nice.
Thanks for the chance!!
Susan C.

Deb January 13, 2008 at 12:57 PM  

Wow - cowboy candy fits right in with what I'd like to see more stamps of. Western themes - Cowboys, (cow cats? :-> ), the landscapes that go with that, etc. Ki yi yippee yi!

Trixie January 13, 2008 at 1:40 PM  

Hey there! I hear so much about you from the "prom dress dropper" and she told me I have to come check you out because you are soooo amazing and indeed you are! You are an extremely creative person. Loved your Christmas card to stampgirl. Along the lines of stamps I would recommend two different types - vintage styles that are easy to use not high stamp maintenance ones - like the old-fashioned wrapping paper kind, surely there are never enough vintage cowgirls out there and more retro"ish" ones - how is the variety - I know I don't do very well with following instructions - you did say to select one but you can just say the not following instructions I learned from my sister. LOL Have a great day!

Stacy January 13, 2008 at 2:26 PM  

I can never get enough of sentiment stamps and when they match certain stamps, that's even better.. The PUNNIER the better!! :) Great blog, thanks for the candy opportunity!!

Inkylin January 13, 2008 at 2:38 PM  

I would love to see more lengthy sentiment stamps meant for insides of cards.


Charlene Austin (SCS - Willow01) January 13, 2008 at 2:53 PM  

OMGosh I love the Cowboy stamps. I have been loving the sneak peeks the design team is doing. I think Cat's Pajama's would have great birds. Cat's and birds go together don't they? Maybe if they are seperated by a cage they do. LOL.

Anne January 13, 2008 at 3:29 PM  

Gotta say, lately I am in love with animal stamps- but cute kids, and religious sentiments would be great too!!

MJ January 13, 2008 at 3:39 PM  

Thanks for this great opportunity!
I really am excited for the release of this set. I am happy that someone is filling my love for Cowboy images, and it's so cute to Boot! (pun intended)
I am also looking for more pirate images. Oh and my daughter plays SOFTBALL, and those kind of images are hard to come by.

Thanks for the chance to win some cowboy candy! I would love to see more inside/outside stamp sets and more backgrounds. I'm a sucker for backgrounds. Also fantasy theme sets would be different.

Anonymous January 13, 2008 at 4:39 PM  

Thanks for the contest! I love this stamp set. Can't wait for the 19th. I would like some stamps featuring ladies that are a little more fluffy. Kind of like the Bella's but more like a size 14 than a size 2!

Ginny H January 13, 2008 at 5:06 PM  

I would like travel and animals. Most anything for children would be good1 Thanks for the chance to win.

Rhonda January 13, 2008 at 7:38 PM  

Cute card! Woohoo on the blog candy!! I'm excited about the new TCP stamps!! There are a lot of great stamps out there, but I'm always looking for great new sentiments for mine. I also am always on the lookout for great new flower stamps!

Jen January 13, 2008 at 8:09 PM  

I'm always looking for some manly matter what it is. The card is great as usual

Sues January 13, 2008 at 8:36 PM  

Yippee... I'm 93! (and it rhymes!)

I think masculine stamps would be great! But then again i always love sentiments! Oh the choices!

Natasha January 13, 2008 at 9:17 PM  

I am always on the lookout for cute food themed stamps.

Shannon January 13, 2008 at 9:47 PM  

I am so excited to do my first order of TCP with the release on this week. I can never have enough flowers so I'd have to say flowers.

Anne January 13, 2008 at 10:33 PM  

How fun! I'd like to see some home and move related sentiments along with images pertaining to them.

I agree with Sew Crazy, Maybe some realistic looking ladies who are PHAT= Pretty Hot and Thick, lol... this would be the ultimate stamps, I know I would certainly buy them all, thanks for the blog candy......

Karen January 14, 2008 at 6:37 AM  

I'd like to see different/unusual greeting/saying sets. It seems like when I want a particular greeting/saying - I can never find what I'm looking for and have to change my original thought for the card.

Anonymous January 14, 2008 at 7:28 AM  

Wow....Thanks for a chance to win this set. I would love to see more "guy" stamps.
