50 States Blog Hop WINNER

Hello all,

I am so sorry that I haven't chosen a winner until now...I really don't have a great excuse except that I am on the 15th day in a row of a 22 day stretch working.  I know I have said that I have a pretty boring "real" job, but boring is sometimes worse than being slammed.  At least it is for me.  When I get home at night all I want to do is eat dinner, veg in front of the tv for a while and go NIGHT NIGHT.  Can you tell I have a 1 year old in the house...Night, night!!!  LOL  So first I wanna thank Kristal over at Kandrewdesigns for such an honor to be able to participate in her YEARLY blog hop.  She only hosts a blog hop once a year and she goes all out.  (I only found out yesterday that her WONDERFUL husband is her blog sponsor)  How cool is that?  So therefore, did you know that each one of us who participated in her hop showing off our STATE is getting a My Pink Stamper set?  How wonderful is that, Thank you Mr. KANDREW!  OH YEAH.  (I would have done it anyway).  Kristal has been such a good "friend".  She has such awesome files and she really knows her stuff.  I love her files.  REALLY I DO!!!  She was one of my first followers and has been very supportive of my blog.  SECOND I want to thank all of my NEW followers.  You were all so very kind!!!  I was so touched by all of your comments.  SERIOUSLY.  I have my blog set up to monitor all comments, they then come to my email which is linked to my Droid and guess what, my phone was blowing up constantly.  Meaning I had to read EACH and EVERYONE's comments (which I enjoyed tremendously) and I had to publish each and every one I read (which I was more than grateful for).  You are all so GREAT, your comments were wonderful and I hope that you all keep following me and commenting, (ever once in a while) on my blog.  THANK YOU!!!  Ok, if you have read this far down you are more than deserving for some more blog candy.  Before I started this hop I had 92 followers and at the end I had 207.  WOW!!!  So, I am going to do some more blog candy.  Leave a comment here saying anything you would like and become a follower (if you aren't already) you will be elligible for one entry.  Post my blog candy on your blog and leave a comment that you did that and you will get another entry.  To get one more opportunity for the blog candy, grab my blinkie and post it to your sidebar and leave a comment that you did so.  The giveaway for this will be a brand new I-ROCK.    I love mine and thought you all might love one also.  Ok, ok, you have all been very patient and now onto the winner of the Houndstooth cuddlebug folder and the Mt. Rushmore refrigerator magnet IS:

#53 Scrappy Jackie: SAID
These projects are soooo classy and beautiful.... Great job! Thanks for telling us about North Dakota... I am from West Michigan and this winter it has been interresting... We are always a little warmer than you guys... along the lake. but the snow and how deep it is and the ice hanging from the buildings... it is so strange and different. I keep reminding my boys when they say it is cold that it is colder in NorthDakota and Canada... I have not seen it quite like this ever. Hang in there... I have been promised by my husband that this winter will end soon... we'll have to see. Thanks for the hop! pjritsema at gmail dot com

Scrappy Jackie - please email me your snail mail addy and I will get this out to you ASAP.  And yes, South Dakota was at 47 degrees today, so hopefully we are out of the below zeros.

As always, have a great day and god bless.
