Random Amusing Challenge #20 & BLOG CANDY

I hope everyone had a good weekend. We were very self indulgent but also very productive. Gotta like that.

Must mention that I am doing a Make n' Take at the Crop for Kenya on May 30th. Scrappers' Anonymous and Treasured Memories will be there too! If you are intersted in attending, please contact Stephanie Cave.

So there's supposed to be something happening today... anyone remember? Hmmm... I'm coming up blank... must have relaxed too much on the weekend....

Oh wait...it's coming back to me...something about a treat (was I going to mention the cinnamon buns I made on Saturday)...no.... was it to mention about the new plants I put in yesterday (that's a treat for me)....

Ok, fine... here it is.... BLOG CANDY time! Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net To celebrate my 20th challenge, I've decided to give away some treats...included in the package will be:
- A Muse hello stamp, note cards, twinkle stickers, some pink tutu and lime sheer ribbon, and samples of the clear stickers
- Stickles from Treasured Memories Scrapbooking (next class this Saturday, April 18)
- Buttons from Scrappers' Anonymous (next class this Sunday, April 19)
- Silver diamond clips from Crafty Capers (next class is Sunday, May 31)
- pink brads

The challenge this week is simple... make a card in 20 minutes (or less). I made my card for this week in 10 minutes. What do you think? Love A Muse's long grass with the mini flower.

So to be qualified to win the blog candy, here is what you have to do (I'm not usually big on rules but this involves winning stuff so must be specific):
1. Make a card in 20 minutes - I'm trusting you on this one!
2. Post your card link as a comment on this post. Entries in the A Muse Lounge won't count. You must put your entry number on your post. Blogger doesn't number the comments. If you post to Splitcoast Stampers, please use the keyword GRAC20.
3. Please mention the blog candy when you post your card and link back here so everyone can play along. Thanks!
4. You don't have to use A Muse stuff on your card this time. Some people don't have any A Muse stuff yet (shocking I know).
5. Post your card by 7:00 pm Pacific time on Sunday April 19. That's 7 pm in Long Beach, California, 8 pm in Regina, Saskatchewan, 9 pm in Winnipeg, Manitoba, 10 pm in Youngsville, North Carolina, 11 pm in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, 4 am April 20 in Brugges, Belgium, 5 am April 20 in Petra, Jordan, 10 am April 20 on the Great Wall of China and 12 pm April 20 on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The winner will be chosen at random after the deadline.

Thanks to these fabulous ladies for playing last week! This weekly challenge (and the blog candy) wouldn't happen if it weren't for all these creative people playing along! Check out their amazing "scrappy" work.
Anne, Cheiron, Kerry, Michelle, Donna, Dawn, Debbie, Becky, and Analyn.
