Oh, alright then - BLOG CANDY!!

Alma has donated a set of the new stamps for me to give away as BLOG CANDY to a lucky TCP fan this week!!
All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me what kind of occasion/activity you'd like to see Sprinkle and Poochie dressed up for: something traditional like a birthday party, or something more "out there"? I can't wait to hear your suggestions!! You can enter until midnight MST on Thursday and I'll draw the lucky winner first thing on Friday.



imteresa April 14, 2008 at 3:03 PM  

Oh, this is a toughie. How about something camping-related? Tents, trees, roasting marshmallows, etc?

Tanis April 14, 2008 at 3:05 PM  

I {heart} Poochie and Sprinkle! I still don't own any of these cuties, so I'll give this a try :)
I was just at an '80's party, so how about they both dress up as people from my high school days? Leg warmers, shiny tight leggings, wide belts with long sweaters, cut off "football" jerseys....{am I bringing back any memories?!}
Thanks for the giveaway Toni!

Donna April 14, 2008 at 3:22 PM  

I'd love to see Halloween costumes, a Santa suit, a graduation gown, medical stuff, and teacher stuff.

Kraftin' Kimmie April 14, 2008 at 3:23 PM  

I totally go for the more 'out there' kind! The 80's theme sounds like a riot, or how about at the local fair, on roller coasters and ferris wheels and such?....eating cotton the funhouse....hahaha!! What trouble they could get into! Oh also I'm a librarian, so reading some books etc. would be cool too!

Sharon in NE April 14, 2008 at 3:44 PM  

I will forever have in my mind Sprinkles as Ann and Poochie as Donald of "That Girl". (Don't ask me why...if you haven't already figured out my mind is quirky, then you've been smart enough to ignore my comments.) So...let's go back and look at some of the "That Girl" shows...I want Sprinkles going to work dressed up in her 60s outfit, modeling hip clothes, etc. So its all about the 60s, glamour and New York City.

Janean Campbell April 14, 2008 at 3:51 PM  

How about dressed up as medical staff. Nurses, firefighters, EMT and doctors...

Lezlye April 14, 2008 at 3:55 PM  

I would have to say a biker theme! Hubby is having a b-day and he gets a Hrley Davidson Bike!
Great blog, thanks for the chance to win, I would love these. Just saw them at the Rubber Stamp show. I bought Birthday ones, wished I could have gotten them all!

Jan Scholl April 14, 2008 at 4:55 PM  

Dress him up for the Boston Marathon which is next Monday, put on his running shoes!

Melissas April 14, 2008 at 5:16 PM  

How about scientists? Lab coats, safety glasses, etc. OR construction workers! Swinging hammers, LOL

Thanks for the chance to win these great stamps!

Becky Rusher April 14, 2008 at 5:24 PM  

I was thinking along the same lines as kraftin' Kimmie. A state fair theme would be fun! What a fun give-away!

Cat April 14, 2008 at 5:50 PM  

what a GREAT give away :) i love the little poochie and sprinkles wood mounts i have - very simple designs tho. LOVE the camping/woodsy theme mentioned by imteresa.

HeyHeyPaula April 14, 2008 at 6:24 PM  

Nice give away. How about dressed for a tropical vacation. Thanks for a chance to win some great stamps!

Pegg S April 14, 2008 at 6:44 PM  

Looking forward to seeing the new sets! I would love to see travel related Poochie and Sprinkle -- that would be fun to follow them on vacation, around the world!

Allison April 14, 2008 at 6:56 PM  

I would like to see little kid versions of Sprinkle and Poochie!

Aimeslee April 14, 2008 at 7:17 PM  

Oh my! What a great give-away! If I won those stamps, I could jack your cards in the previous post, lol. (You may think I'm kidding, but I'm not!)

Okay, here's my idea: Poochie and Sprinkle need to be dressed up for graduation from Obedience School, to tie into May graduations coming up!

Kathy H April 14, 2008 at 7:17 PM  

I would pick something camping or cabin related, Thanks Kathy Hering...

Trixie April 14, 2008 at 7:19 PM  

Ok my mind is spinning - how about farmers - you know that painting of the old couple and the guy is with a pitchfork and I can't remember what the gal is - but can't you see poochie standing with a slight beard, a hat, glasses and a pitchfork in his hand??? Or how about sprinkle riding a John Deere tractor pulling a bowl of milk and a bunch of little kitties following her??? Ok enough country - let's go the complete opposite direction - let's do roaring 20's...Sprinkle standing on her hind legs in a little dress with the fringe all over???? Am I descriptive enough??? I love throwing out ideas - this is so much fun!

Deb Neerman April 14, 2008 at 7:35 PM  

Hula dancer!!!

Linda April 14, 2008 at 7:36 PM  

Lots of great ideas. I was thinking about a wedding theme. Aimelees' idea is really cute and made me lol. Thanks for a chance in the giveaway.

Sues April 14, 2008 at 7:56 PM  

I'd like to see them hiking! C'mon I need some more buddies to take along on my adventures!!

Cindy April 14, 2008 at 7:59 PM  

Well, since most of my time is taken up with work at a doctor's office and volunteering at a local medical clinic, I'd like to see them in

Stephanie April 14, 2008 at 7:59 PM  

Hmmmm, How about ballroom dancers, they have great costumes!!

sandyh50 April 14, 2008 at 8:05 PM  

How about a guitarist and drummer! My son is in a rock band.


Anonymous April 14, 2008 at 8:43 PM  

I have to say I love the traditional stuff like bundled up for Winter or a party hat on for birthdays.....but how about dancing below a disco ball or with glasses on reading??? Thanks for sharing this blog candy - so fun. :)
Dana K.

Jenn April 14, 2008 at 9:00 PM  

I would like to see Sprinkle & Poochie dressed up in job related stuff - nurse, fireman, farmer, policeman, artist, etc.!

Littleone's Scrapbook Journal April 14, 2008 at 9:07 PM  

I would love to see sprinkle in glasses--I am always trying to find ways to get my 3 year old to wear hers. Maybe as a soccer player, softball player, ballerina.

KarenB April 14, 2008 at 9:11 PM  

OOHHH just found your blog and these yummy stamps.....what about those darlings dressed up like biker babes w/their Harley's?? LOL

Cynthia April 14, 2008 at 9:29 PM  

Wedding or graduation would be great, Cynthia

Anonymous April 14, 2008 at 10:19 PM  

I'm an avid runner, I would love to see them running, biking, swimming, etc. anything summer too!

al_silver2 April 14, 2008 at 11:04 PM  

I'd love to see them in traditional "dress up clothes"...too long ties, giant dresses, high heels, big beaded necklaces...

Kim Ross April 14, 2008 at 11:47 PM  

I think a birthday party would be fun. Gotta have a giant cupcake, too. (What about a litterbox for Sprinkle?)b

Wendalyn April 15, 2008 at 12:41 AM  

I think Birthdays would be a fun set or something dressing up would be fun. I think anything would be great. I don't own any sprinkles he's too cute.

Stampin Cats April 15, 2008 at 4:46 AM  

I am a big racing fan. I would like to see them dressed like a race car driver and a pit popsie. That would be hilarious.

Heather April 15, 2008 at 6:14 AM  

Well, these have already been mentioned, but since we travel & camp with our doggie, I would say traveling and/or camping. Or maybe put them in shades and lifejackets. :)

Shannan Teubner April 15, 2008 at 6:25 AM  

OOOhhh!! I can't wait to see the whole set! I'd like to see them all decked out in motorcycle gear. :)

Trese April 15, 2008 at 6:26 AM  

Me, I love sprinkle in her little indian goods! would love to see her in a dragster!!! Like speed racer!!

JenMarie April 15, 2008 at 7:09 AM  

Hmmm, birthday would be good, cupcakes are so 'IN' right now.
Or...a rainy day sprinkle...
Coffee shop sprinkle...

Bunny B April 15, 2008 at 8:11 AM  

I'd like to see them at a cocktail party, dressed to the nines! :) Living the high life.

Cindy Vernon April 15, 2008 at 8:19 AM  

Birthdays would be fun and useful, but I wouldn't mind seeing them dressed up as skateboarders...

scfranson April 15, 2008 at 8:37 AM  

I'd like to see them dressed for a wedding.

Anonymous April 15, 2008 at 8:55 AM  

I was going to say wedding, but I see someone has already chosen that one. I still think it would be grat to them dressed in a pouffy wedding dress and a tux! How adorable would that be!?!

Janet B

Lorien Clark April 15, 2008 at 9:03 AM  

How about a disco? Hee hee! You've already go the lava lamp.

Ida April 15, 2008 at 10:32 AM  

Do dogs BOWL? - I'm a bowler and there are so few fun "bowling" themed stamps out there that I thought maybe the dogs could take on some sports (besides chasing cards & peeing on fire hydrants)LOL

Tracy April 15, 2008 at 10:44 AM  

Wow, what a treat! You could put Sprinkle & Poochie in just about anything and they would ROCK! How about something to do with exercise and fitness? Sprinkle & Poochie would look oh so cute with a sweat band or legwarmers!

Alyssa April 15, 2008 at 10:57 AM  

Halloween stuff would be cute, but I am super in love with Pirate stuff! I know TCP has some pirate stamps, but a set like the cowboy sets are more of what I am looking for. :) Thanks for the chance!

Island Stamper April 15, 2008 at 11:05 AM  

I think a 70's theme would be really far out and fun! Sprinkle and Poochie dressed in hippy clothes... hippy van or bug for them to drive... hippy sentiments... you get the idea!

I also like the biker theme someone suggested earlier... right on!

Thanks for the opportunity to win... Peace, Love and Joy to you!

Anonymous April 15, 2008 at 12:31 PM  

I'd like to see poochie dressed for Memorial Day or July 4th!
Gerri K

andrea murdock April 15, 2008 at 12:35 PM  

what a great idea!!!! I would love to see them dressed up at a hula party or perhaps a spa day or a shopping trip. Love it!

Maria Matter April 15, 2008 at 12:48 PM  

What fun! I have alot of sportsmen in the family, how about a hunter or holding a fishing rod!
Thanks for the opportunity to win some great stamps!!!!

lunurse April 15, 2008 at 3:11 PM  

a wedding! it's time for them to tie the knot :)

Mecah Dow April 15, 2008 at 3:12 PM  

Well going to the Kentucky Derby on May 3rd. She will have to be wearing a derby hat , of course!Possibly a mint julep nearby.

breanna April 15, 2008 at 3:21 PM  

i'd love to see them "cooking up some fun" in chefs hats,mixing bowls, aprons

and for a baby shower, so cute!

Tracy April 15, 2008 at 3:32 PM  

How about a Black Tie affair. Walking the "red carpet" at the Oscars, a "Cool cat " and a" Hot dog " ! LOL! Thanks for the chance at some great candy.

swordsandswimmers April 15, 2008 at 3:40 PM  

Dress them as babies for someone who had twins or triplet or whatever, but remind then that that at least they didn't have a litter....:)

You know I am just kidding. We got the minivan as Troy's new company car. The lease on the old one was up and it was our only choise that seated more than 5. We actually love it, the captians chairs swivel around a face the back so that when we travel there is a table we can pop up to use for games snacks etc... Gas mileage is acceptable.

AmyR April 15, 2008 at 3:50 PM  

I would LOVE to have a TCP Birthday Clear set - I KNOW it would be fabulous (heck I'm still waiting hopefully that she'll do the Pirate stamps in a clear set - a girl can dream!!) :o)

Jenifer April 15, 2008 at 3:50 PM  

How about something outside like planting a garden or flowers. Thanks for the chance to win.

broni (waterchild12) April 15, 2008 at 4:00 PM  

Let's go with some of the X-treme about snowboarding or BMX stunt riding?

Adair April 15, 2008 at 4:55 PM  

It would be fun to see some with skateboarding or snowboarding. This new set sounds like it is going to be so fun!

Inkylin April 15, 2008 at 5:57 PM  

I would love to see Poochie and Sprinkle all dressed up to go to the Westminster dog show. I definitely think Sparkle would cause quite a commotion.


Daz April 15, 2008 at 5:58 PM  

Oh, how about summer themed with speedo and bikini (lol) Or for a night out on the town to have a few cocktails.

Kathy April 15, 2008 at 6:00 PM  

I'd love to see them in little artist's costumes and have them stamping away. Thanks for the chance to win your awesome candy!

annheidel April 15, 2008 at 6:19 PM  

How about a detective-themed set in the vein of Sherlock Holmes? It sounds fun to me anyway! :)

Mauna April 15, 2008 at 6:20 PM  

Since it almost summer I'm thinking beach. Surfboards and swimsuits, sunglasses and umbrellas, rollar skates and skate boards. Oh the fun!!!

Marilyn April 15, 2008 at 6:21 PM  

OOOHHHH - how about a Tea Party?? or a Garden Party?? or maybe even a Summer BBQ?? All would be great!

Anonymous April 15, 2008 at 6:28 PM  

Hmmmmm....I have boys so I'm thinking maybe dressed up like a farmer on a tractor, maybe a construction worker in a hardhat, or even on a skateboard or roller blades. That would be cool!!

Nancy L.

Jenna P April 15, 2008 at 7:22 PM  

Hmmm... how about hiking/camping- ya know, backpacks and a pup-tent! :)


Harriet Skelly (SCS hskelly) April 15, 2008 at 7:26 PM  

I'd like to see them dressed up for the Olympics - like on a sport team.

Mom22RedHeads April 15, 2008 at 8:14 PM  

I'd like to see either camping, or misc sports: sneakers, hiking, swimming,boxing, etc

Carolyn April 15, 2008 at 8:29 PM  

I'd love to see him as a scientist!

Anonymous April 15, 2008 at 8:48 PM  

How about having him doing some sort of sports..there's always a shortage of "boy" stamps out there. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

Ashley April 15, 2008 at 9:02 PM  

This may not be "out there" but how about teachers? A dunce cap even! I am a preschool teacher and would like to see more teacher related stamps with animals. I could use them for Thank You cards (which I use A LOT).

Holly April 15, 2008 at 9:04 PM  

how about having them doing some stamping?!!

Novell April 15, 2008 at 9:15 PM  

I wanna see them playin the guitar and rockin out!

Debbie April 15, 2008 at 9:51 PM  

A stroll on the beach in California! Debbie P

Hope April 16, 2008 at 2:08 AM  

I like the idea of a camping theme - hats and fishing rods perhaps. Or a day of sailing, with captain's hat etc.

Judie April 16, 2008 at 2:25 AM  

Living in Hawaii, I'd like to see Sprinkle and Poochie dressed for a day of surfing!

ALLY April 16, 2008 at 5:06 AM  

I'd love to see them dressed up like ice skaters! How cute would that be??

Allison Cope

Lynn April 16, 2008 at 5:45 AM  

I think dressing them up as sports athelets would be great! Wrestler, cheerleader, gymnast, football player, baseball and softball player, tennis anyone? I think those are great. BTW- it is hard to find any stamps that have wrestlers! You know I would buy them all up!
Thanks for sharing!

Jayne April 16, 2008 at 6:01 AM  

Speaking of "out there", how about dressing them for a Star Trek convention? That would be way fun! Thanks so much for sharing.

Celebrate the Arts April 16, 2008 at 6:05 AM  

I think they should portray some of the popular dance styles on TV such as Latin and Smooth dances including tango, salsa, swing, etc. They would make great silhouette designs!

plg April 16, 2008 at 6:45 AM  

I want to see them dressed up for Prom - it's prom season here in Michigan & I would love to see them all "duded" up!

Barbara1940 April 16, 2008 at 7:44 AM  

Great set! How about dressing them up for gardening? Cute straw hats, gardening tools, tiny tulips, etc. I could find many uses for a set like that!

Lori Barnett April 16, 2008 at 8:20 AM  

How fun!!! Love the set. about something Christmas? Like snowhats, snowboarding, etc. Love it!

Gina Wrona April 16, 2008 at 10:17 AM  

Awesome! Thank you so much for the chance to play and win, wink, wink.....

How 'bout Mother's Day & Father's Day?


Amy April 16, 2008 at 10:29 AM  

I would like to see some bicycling duds on them. Many of the other ideas sound great too!

Julie Miller April 16, 2008 at 12:44 PM  

How about wedding including bachelorette and bachelor parties? How fun! Thanks.

Dana April 16, 2008 at 1:57 PM  

How about Poochie laying on the couch with a remote control! LOl I need some more man related cards. Or my second about golfing, fishing, hunting?

leenda April 16, 2008 at 4:15 PM  

They should be spiffy to visit their Grandma.

scrappinmaniac April 16, 2008 at 4:41 PM  

How about a Matador and his lovely Senorita, with all the garb.

Angela (monkeymama) April 16, 2008 at 5:22 PM  

I would love the see Poochie fishing and maybe Sprinkle stalking a fish in a bowl! TCP rocks---can't wait to see the new stamps! Angela

Lisa & Penny April 16, 2008 at 6:42 PM  

TCP is quickly becoming one of my favorite stamp companies. I would love to see Sprinkle and Poochie dressed as bikers :-) Just in time for the nice weather!!

Expressions of a Creative Mind April 16, 2008 at 7:18 PM  

I would like to see them in something travel related as well. I think someone else said that as well.

Erika M. April 16, 2008 at 7:27 PM  

I'd have to agree with a previous comment - 80s theme would rock.

Karen April 16, 2008 at 8:06 PM  

I don't own any of these great stamps, so not sure if they already come like this - but what about a Holiday set (Christmas, Halloween, V-day, etc), sports related or gardening.

The Crafty Chik April 17, 2008 at 3:30 AM  

I love these two stamps! They're adorable! My oldest daughter would be excited to get some cards with them stamped on them! I'm a military girl with lots of family in the military from my GPa to me, my DH, all my brothers and now my son (I'm so proud!) so I have to say something patriotic! Thanks for the chance and for the opportunity of input!

Lisa K in TX April 17, 2008 at 5:44 AM  

would love to see these two dressed up like they are going to the prom or a wedding! cute! lisa k in tx

holly1368 April 17, 2008 at 6:40 AM  

I would love to see them dressed in Halloween costumes!

Melissa April 17, 2008 at 7:12 AM  

I see someone else has said this already, but both my boys are into science and I would love some kind of scientist outfits. The beakers and crazy lab stuff would be great!! Love this set!!

AngelBear April 17, 2008 at 7:35 AM  

I would love to see some summer things....swim suit...floaties...etc. Very cool give away!

cwanders April 17, 2008 at 8:41 AM  

I would love to see them at either a tail gating party or hiking and camping. The hiking and camping would help me with some of my "male" cards.

milkshake007 April 17, 2008 at 11:01 AM  

I'm not sure if someone has said this already about dressing them up as politicians....or Simon and Paula from American Idol....

Nancy April 17, 2008 at 11:04 AM  

I love to see him doing a workout, with gym clothes, jogging, lifting weights, and riding a bike.

Anonymous April 17, 2008 at 12:57 PM  

I would love to t-shirts with sayings for lots of occasions - hang in there, get well, etc...and then there could be icons to go with it - smileys, peace sign, etc.

Vickilyn -

Erin K April 17, 2008 at 1:11 PM  

I think I'd watch these animals do anything! I rekon baking? I mean all these ideas are great. Going to school?

ccorbitt April 17, 2008 at 2:20 PM  

luau or hawaiian would be cool
i also like the 80s idea or the the idea of them wearing shirts with messages kinda like chad from high school musical

Anonymous April 17, 2008 at 3:37 PM  

I can see the 2 of them in shades and hats to be undercover sleuthing detectives.

Mary Ferris

Sheila D April 17, 2008 at 7:20 PM  

Wow, I just read the comments and there are some terrific ideas there. I can't come up with anything new or better, so I'll just say Xtreme sports would be cool as well as the detective theme. Also a fair or amusement park would be fun to play with. Thanks so much for offering this awesome blog candy!

Jane Bosi April 17, 2008 at 8:43 PM  

I'd like to see them involve in sports....I also think it would be cool for them to go to the Prom or attend a Ball....that'd be different....

Anonymous April 17, 2008 at 8:44 PM  

I am always searching for the perfect baby/kids set since many of my friends are having babies now. So that would be my preference!
~Lena Altman

Kim L. April 17, 2008 at 11:18 PM  

Dressed up to work in the healthcare field! A doctor, nurse, pharmacist...with accessory images of medicines, syringes, black bags, nurses caps....

Nancy April 17, 2008 at 11:48 PM  

How about bundled up in some winter gear? That's the first thing that came to mind at least, even though it's the wrong time of year for that :) Thanks for the chance!!

Stamp Time April 18, 2008 at 8:14 AM  

I would like to see different clothes for them. It would be cool to do them from different eras. You could have a disco, the 80's, the 50's, a hippie set. That would be sooo cool!

Thanks for the chance to win the set!

Cheri Mosgrove April 18, 2008 at 11:10 AM  

They need to go camping and fishing and hiking! What fun!

Kathi Rerek April 18, 2008 at 12:32 PM  

Since my daughter's about to go to her prom, why not prom clothing?

Second choice? Cyclists. Can't you just see them in cycling spandex?

jennifer April 18, 2008 at 2:50 PM  

how about a traveling poochie and sprinkle! visting big ben, the leaning tower of piza and the great wall of china ect

Lindsay Green April 19, 2008 at 3:22 PM  

I'd like to see them dressed up to a hawaiian theme!
