Did someone say “CANDY”?!?!?

Did someone say “CANDY”?!?!?

Shhhhh…I’m not really here, though you are. I’m really in Kalamazoo, recovering from eating turkey and avoiding going shopping (except the scrapbook store…think I’ll head there!) But since I’m away having retail therapy, I just wanted you to have the opportunity to think fondly of me while I’m gone. So I’m gonna offer you some BLOG CANDY!!! WoooHOOOO!


Ooops…that’s not BLOG candy, that’s EYE candy!

Nope, not that kinda candy either!

This kind:

What’s this? Why it’s a brand spanky new set by Hanna Stamps called "Things Hanna Would Say"! Kristi asked if I wanted to do a bit of blog candy, with the lucky winner getting a free set of "Things Hanna Would Say" and I said, "LOVE TO!"

So to win this yummo blog candy, I’d like you to leave a comment (only one!) and tell me which of these "Things Hanna Would Say" is the one saying you would use the most. Comments must be made by 12 M Pacific Time (3 AM ET). The winner will be chosen by a random number generator sometime on Saturday. I’ll post to the blog and hook you up with Kristi so you can get  your set. So leave a comment, just ONE comment, mind you, and may the force be with you!

  • Hi Jan I can’t believe I am the first person to comment πŸ™‚ That never happens to me πŸ™‚ Well I think the saying I most use is Thank You-I find myself saying this alot to people. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Sara

  • Hiya Jan! Love your blog! The saying I would use the most would probably be ‘Shop till you Drop’! or BFF! They would go great with Hanna’s ‘But I Need It set’! Can you tell, my girlfriends and I LOVE to shop!? I can also see ‘Puddles of Love’ and ‘Dancing in the Rain’ seeing alot of ink, once my Rain, Rain set arrives!

  • Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I love the eye candy and the blog candy! I think I would use “Hello” the most as that is the starting point for just about everything, don’t you think? Then I could stamp whatever was needed on the inside of the card. Love your blog Jan – you are most entertaining and very crafty…in a good way – LOL!

  • Hi. Thanks for offering up this blog candy. I think the one that I would use the most is “Just what I have always wanted” because everything I see is “Just what I have always wanted”!!! πŸ™‚

  • Well, I SHOULD use “Thank You” the most, because it seems that I’m always in need of a card to show grattitude for something, but I think the one I WOULD use is “Dancing in the Rain”. It just fits my personality and happens to be one of my all-time favorite activities. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the opportunity, Jan! Keep us giggling and inspired (and in awe) with your fantastic blog!

  • I would probably end up using “keep your head up” the most. I like to give cards to friends and coworkers who are having a difficult time — even it it’s simple and minimal like just having a bad day. It’s amazing how a little card can really pick up people’s spirits. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, Jan. I love this set. It is hard to choose one! πŸ™‚ “Hey Girlfriend” is probably the one that would get the most use. Although, they are all great!

  • I’d use Thanks a bunch most.
    I’m a lurker to your blog and LOVE IT!! Such great inspiration. I hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.

  • I’d use “you rock” the most. God has blessed me with so many friends that rock! Hope your Thanksgiving was a blessed one:)

  • Hi Jan,
    Can’t wait everyday to read your blog!
    I know that the most used stamp for me in the bunch
    would be “Thank You”. There are alot of things if life that we have to thank our friends and family for. Also THANK YOU for a great blog!

  • Ok I have to say I would use BFF most. Everyone around me has a BFF. Even the dog. Go figure. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving Janine. Give the kids a big hug for me. See you on Sunday. Oh and thanks for the Eye Candy..he is just Dandy. πŸ™‚

  • I hate to say this but “Charge” would be it. I am not a spendaholic but I never, ever have cash anymore! Plus I collect air miles with the card so why not? Cheers!

  • I really like the “I Pick You” stamp. I think I could use that a LOT!!! Thanks for the chance to win some wonderful candy….are you sure it won’t be accompanied by George?? Oh well! Thanks Jan!! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  • Hey Jan! Love your blog…visit it daily… and your insane sense of humor!! It’s right up my alley! I think I would use “Hey girlfriend” the most, although they are all great. I can’t wait to get my “But I need it” set … it’s on it’s way!! Thanx for all you do!

  • I think that “Happy Birthday”, and “Thank You” are the most versatile, but with the first set that was released, I think “Charge” would be very well loved πŸ™‚

  • I would hafta pick “You rock!” although my kids think I should not use slang. LOL I’m sure they’re right. I remember thinking my mom was weird when she did! How did I turn into my mom?

  • I’d either pick “I’m melting” because so many of the people I know are in that stage of life πŸ™‚ or “I pick you” because that would be such fun to make a card with. Couldn’t pick just one, kind of like potato chips. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and a safe trip home. I think I really covet the You Rock stamp. There are so many times that someone needs just a little boost. Thanks for all the great goorrrrguuuus things you post. You are a true inspiration. Barb

  • I would choose, “I pick you” because I have so many flowers and I think it goes so well with the sentiment and giving cards to friends.
    Thanks for sharing such a great blog!!!

  • My favorite is “Have a tail wagging day.” My husband and I are both veterinarians, so we have lots of animal stuff around our house!

  • I’d probably use Happy Birthday the most but I would want to use…your my favorite…I just have a hard time with that phrase ‘cuz I don’t want someone’s feelings hurt! I’m such a wimp, huh? LOL!

  • These are just adorable! But the one I’d use most would probably be “You Rock” because I say that all the time!
    Thanks for the great candy offer. (And if you can manage to throw in George, I’ll pay the extra postage!)

  • Hope you’re enjoying the holiday! The way things have been going, I guess the sentiment I’d use most is “shop ’till you drop.” I’m good at that!

  • I can see me using 2 of them in tandem : )
    On the card front, “Have fun on your day”, and for the inside, “Happy Birthday”. Thanks Jan, don’t spend too much (hahaha), & get some rest!

  • Hope you enjoyed your holiday! I think I’d probably use the “hey girlfriend” one the most. But I’m sure I’d get a lot of use out of “You rock” and “Happy Birthday” too.

  • Okay just one comment but I must say it is a tie between two sayings – You Rock! and “You’re my favorite” Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Hey, Jan! Hope you had a great time with your retail therapy, and thanks so much for offering us some terrific blog candy. I think I would use the “Shop til you Drop” the most. I send out a lot of Birthday cards, and this one would go well with a lot of my friend’s personalities.

  • Well, my favorite word ‘Fabulous’ is not a choice, so I’d have to go with ‘Happy Birthday’ as my most used. I love making birthday cards for people.
    Have a great Thanksgiving weekend!

  • As long as I can lick my screen , this is still blog candy. George is yum.
    Since I just got a new dog (who is not settling in as well as planned -a book in the making maybe?) I think the dog related ones might work.
    Well, I am venturing into Flint today-not to shop but to go to the gym. and maybe stop at the Farmer’s Market for lunch.

  • I think I would use “This too shall pass” the most. I like to send encouraging notes to friends and I have nothing similar to that stamp.
    What a great set, though! Lots of variety!

  • I’m going to say “Surprise’. We recently had a surprise bday party for my dad, and I taught my son to yell ‘surprise’ and not tell my dad about the party.
    My 2nd fave would be ‘Just what I have always wanted’…I want to use this phrase on scrapbook pages about my husband and children.

  • I think Happy Birthday would get used the most. Although Shop ’til you drop describes me perfectly. The whole set is wonderful.
    By the way I LOVE your blog. You are so talented.
    Michelle T

  • Hi Jan. I think there are a few sentiments that I would use together quite often. “Hey girlfriend” would be a great start with “Keep your head up” and “This too shall pass”! I hope you had a great time shopping.

  • My favorite comment would have to be “And this too shall pass”…since I have been known to say that alot at the office! πŸ™‚ Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

  • What a great giveaway … The sentiments are all wonderful, I think I would use “you’re my favorite” more than others.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Hi Jan! I hope you are well on the way to post-Thanksgiving recovery. (Try some chocolate, I’m sure it will help!).
    As to the sentiment I would use most often, that’s tough to say. Im sure “Hello” and “Thank you” will get plenty of use. But, I think I would reach most often for “Reach for the stars” because it’s a great sentiment of encouragement and support, which I love to offer!

  • Well I have to say the majority of cards I make are birthday cards. so the ‘happy birthday” stamp would probably get used the most! Thanks for the opportunity!!!

  • Happy Thanksgiving! I think I would use the “I pick you” stamp the most. If I’m making you a card, I’ve already picked you! I hope you pick me to win this great set!!

  • I don’t know if I can pick just one! There are some really cute sayings. I think my favorite is “Have a tail wagging day!” Can’t wait to see the new sets from these clues in the sentiments!

  • I would have to use a combination of “I’m Melting” and “For You” the most!
    these stamps (and the other hanna stamps) look fabulous and i can not wait to go get some!

  • I would probably use “Happy Birthday” the most, but “Thank You” would be right up there. There is always a need for thank you cards. Love your blog and thanks for the eye candy as well.

  • OHHH this is so sweet of you!hmmm let see what I would you I think You Rock… I would use that for Cards for my kids to make lil cards for my kids.. It makes their day and it makes my day to make them smile πŸ™‚

  • “You Rock!” That’s the saying I would use most. I picked that saying up from my teenagers.
    Thanks for inspiration and blog candy Jan – YOU ROCK!

  • Jan, while I know I should say ‘Thank You’ or ‘Happy Birthday’ are those I’d use the most, I’m finding myself drawn to the ‘This too shall pass’.. several friends are going through some trying times and this would be perfect…its unique, its different.
    You Rock! by the way!!

  • Great Blog Candy – I love reading your blog every day, thanks for sharing your incredible creations with us! My favorite saying from this set is “You Rock!”

  • Fabulous set, the wordings are such I won’t have to look elsewhere..thanks for the candy..
    The most could be used sentiment would be “Surprise”

  • Hands down my phrase is “This too shall pass” – it was the one thing my Mom said a hundred thousand times that still brings me comfort. I love it!
    Thanks for the chance at some cool blog candy!!!

  • Happy day after Thanksgiving! I just love the ‘Hey Sunshine’ stamp. That’s definitely my favorite. Have fun, but hurry home. We need to get together soon.

  • I’ll play! What a nice blend of traditional and non-traditional sayings… I think “I pick you” might be my favorite — it’s not one I’ve seen before! Thanks, and Happy Thanksgiving!

  • I really like the FOR YOU…how versatile is that???? OF course, it is also quite bland…necessary but bland. SO, I would have to say that my favorite is HAVE A TAIL WAGGING DAY! I see many sayings with the word “leash” and “lead” and “wag” in them. It makes me think one thing – THERE’S A SET COMING WITH ANIMALS!!!! YAY! Anyway, thanks for sharing!

  • Cool blog candy! Thanks for offering it up. I think I’d most likely use “You rock!” the most. It sounds like something I would say, plus it is pretty versatile.

  • It would be ‘This to shall pass.’ There are always things that come, freak us out, then pass and all is well in the world again. Until the next time…
    LOVE your blog..usually gives me by daily chuckle.

  • Blog candy, eye candy….I’ll take either..hahaha!! Well, I have a 15 year old daughter who loves to shop so I would probably use the Shop til you Drop and Charge ones a lot, along with the BFF one for when I make b-day cards for her friends!! But I really like the Dancin’ in the Rain one….that one’s perfect!!

  • “Shop til you drop” sounds like the one for me. I know lots of ladies this would be perfect for (the sentiment and George actually).

  • Well, I’d probably use the ‘Happy Birthday’ the most but can easily see myself finding some great uses for all the other fun sayings too! Thanks Jan,
    Ruth A.

  • In the spirit of the season, I would pick “Thank you” or “Thanks a bunch”….I always believe in cultivating an attitude of gratitude. So I also want to thank you for sharing your creative work with us on your blog!

  • I’m dying to use “This too will pass” with Gina K’s “Way to Go!” set! Too funny! I’d probably use “Thank you” the most though!

  • my ONE comment is that I love Frank Zappa also. I have a picture of me giving him my underwear! I was a lady, really, however — I went to the bathroom to disrobe. Some of the other gals had not…. Thanks for THAT memory from many moon units ago πŸ™‚ Peace be with you this holiday season! Lela aka Serenity (serenity_stamper@hotmail.com)

  • The one I would use most would be “have fun on your day” since that tends to be my standard birthday greeting!
    However, dd would drool over and continually use “dancing in the rain” ‘cos she’s a dancer!

  • You crack me up! Love to read your blog. My most commonly used phrase would be “thanks a bunch”, because I am surround by wonderful people who are always doing nice things for me. My mom taught me that a thank you card must follow immedaitely.

  • Oh, what a GREAT SET! I love the “charge”, and Hey Sunshine…it’s a toss-up! I can see me using ALL of them, how fun is THAT??!!
    Glad you are out getting retail therapy, what a great holiday thing to do! Be careful, and come back soon! πŸ™‚

  • “You Rock” because—well, you do AND because it is my kid’s school motto, “R”-respectful, “O”-optimistic, “C”-careful and “K”-kind! GREAT blog-visit daily!

  • I’d probably use “this too shall pass” a lot because I use it a lot when encouraging people. This is GREAT GAWJUS blog candy!
    Mary Puskar

  • Hi Jan, Love your blog you are always so inspirational.
    The saying I would use the most is “shop til you drop” seems like lately I think I’ve won the lottery, lol everytime I get on this computer I see something new on blogs and think I have to have that, lol!

  • I’d use Happy Birthday the most as I make more Birthday cards than any other! These are all great though. What a versatile set!

  • You r blog is great creative inspiration to me. I like the “Dancing in the Rain” because my daughter picked out some music for me to listen to at my work and Singing in the Rain is one of the songs she picked out for me. But to you, I would have to say Hey Girlfriend,You Rock!
    Karen Herrmann

  • I would probably use “have fun on your day” the most. That said, I absolutely LOVE “dancing in the rain” and would try to use it everytime I could!! tia sandie994

  • Well besides the fact that I have 2 of her new sets and Shop till you drop is so me…….. like today, I shopped till I couldn’t walk anymore! I would then choose “Im with you” since when I have a BFF no matter what- I am with her and I think that Hanna would be too! Thanks to Krista for giving this lovely set up to you to put up as Blog candy!

  • Please, please, please keep your blog candy and give me EYE candy! I don’t want stamps, I just want my george!! If you could let me win him, I would be so good for a long time….

  • Hi Jan! The “saying” I would most say is Happy Birthday. I love to make Birthday cards and I love to receive them…so Happy Birthday it is. Pam

  • “This too shall pass”…I use it all the time. Drives my husband crazy! I so enjoy your blog, you always make me giggle!

  • Oddly enough I think I would use “This too shall pass” I don’t have another stamp like that and I say that a lot.
    It’s a good life!
    Terri E.

  • Love your blog!!! And this stamp set too!!! The saying I would use the most is “Reach for the Stars”. Thanks for sharing!!!

  • I would use the one that says “Charge!!!” I just love the “But I Need It” set. Awesome candy. Thanks for the chance to win. (I was actually in MI for Thanksgiving, thinking of you and Kristi.)

  • I think I would use “Just what I have always wanted” the most, I see tons of possibility for it…but don’t worry the other verbage wouldn’t be neglected… πŸ˜‰ thanks for the chance!

  • Well, I would have to say that I would use the Hey Sunshine one, cuz that’s what my DH calls EVERYONE, so it would only seem fitting that it would go on everything!!
    Hope you had a great ‘American Thanksgiving’… we had ours over a month ago!!

  • Well, I would have to say that I would use the Hey Sunshine one, cuz that’s what my DH calls EVERYONE, so it would only seem fitting that it would go on everything!!
    Hope you had a great ‘American Thanksgiving’… we had ours over a month ago!!

  • Well, I would have to say that I would use the Hey Sunshine one, cuz that’s what my DH calls EVERYONE, so it would only seem fitting that it would go on everything!!
    Hope you had a great ‘American Thanksgiving’… we had ours over a month ago!!

  • I would probably use “keep your head up” the most because I like to send cards to encourage others. Love your blog by the way!

  • “This too shall pass” has been the subtitle of my life the past 3 months – and in the past 3 days, I can actually SEE it getting brighter! I think it can apply to everyone at some point. I’d probably use it a lot πŸ™‚

  • Oh yippee! Thanks so much for the blog (and eye!!) candy! πŸ™‚ I’d use “You Rock” the most, I think. Great sentiments.

  • Jan – WOW, I was thinkin’ you ran away with George AND the chocolate. Thanks for the opportunity for blog candy! I would use the “I’m Melting” line the most – Hanna most definitely would dress like the Wicked Witch of the West for Halloween.

  • I would use “You Rock” the most. I love that saying. Thanks for offering the candy. Thanks for the pic of George, too. He’s total eye candy, isn’t he?!

  • I would use “thanks a bunch” the most. They are all super cute… especially the doggie ones! I hope you had fun shopping! We spent the day at Disney World. Have a great weekend! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Well let’s see, after the day I had today (Black Fri shopping from 8:00 am till 8pm) I’ll have to say “CHARGE”. Hope I win- I don’t have enough money left to buy myself a Christmas present. πŸ™

  • I would definitely use “you lead, I’ll follow,” and “this too shall pass.” Being in leadership ain’t easy and it would be so helpful to have something to help wipe the egg off my face :-). I love how unique these are!
    And Happy Thanksgiving, Jan. Blessings on your rest and your (ahem) retail therapy. We won’t tell!

  • I really like the “have a tail wagging day” and can’t wait to see the set that will go with it!
    Love your blog, and your inspiration! Thanks for the chance to win this set!

  • I would probably use “Have fun on your day” but I really like “Have a tail wagging day”. BTW I enjoy visiting your blog.

  • Obviously, I’d have to use “Thank You” first… to send you a card for the blog candy of course!! πŸ™‚ And I’d probably use it most often. I do love that there are some that aren’t ‘run-of-the-mill’ sentiments like “puddles of love” and “Charge!!!”

  • Obviously, I would need “You’re my favorite” so that I could make cards to send to you.
    (Does random.org recognize brown nosing when it sees it?

  • fun candy!!!! george clooney would be nice, too! LOL! my fave (or the one i would use the most) is “thanks a bunch”…i make ALOT of thank you cards lately.
    love your blog and your creations…keep ’em comin’!

  • Blog candy…..Sweet! Sounds like something I would say.
    This too shall pass
    Thanks a bunch
    are some of my fav sayin’s

  • I would use the “You Rock!” the most for my girlfriends, because they all, well, rock! They are the best group of buddies that I could ever ask for.

  • Win this blog candy or not, this set is one I will have to get. So many different sayings…great idea! I would use “have a tail-wagging day”, with my collection of puppy stamps.

  • Good morning: I would use “have fun on your day” the most. The other sayings are great too. Love your blog and card samples.

  • More blog candy! It’s a great weekend! I think “You Rock!” would be most used for me.
    Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!!

  • I think I like “You’re my Favorite” This would be great on B’Day cards for almost everyone I’d send. There are so many cute sayings, hard to pick!

  • I would use “shop till you drop” as that’s what I was doing yesterday…lol! Thanks so much for all the great inspiration!

  • “Have a tail wagging day.” I love dogs and just think it would be a great sentiment to have. They’re all great, hard to choose one as I know I’d use them all!

  • I would probably use the “Reach for the Stars” quite a bit. They are all great sentiments, so picking one is pretty hard! I just love my Hanna Stamps so I know I will use ALL of these sentiments!

  • If I’m not to late to be a part of the drawing I would probably use Reach for the stars…I like that one.
    Love your blog!
    Sharon King

  • Hi, Jan. I really like the Sow the Seeds of Love saying. It’s not like any other sentiment I own, and it would be so fun to use!
    So, you’re really NOT sending someone Mr. Eye Candy?? I’d reeeally like to have George in my stampin’ room, sigh…. πŸ˜‰

  • Jan, I love your blog! Your art is truly inspiring, and your writing never fails to brighten my day. I think I would use “Hey Sunshine” the most. With two two year old granddaughters I do tend to say it a lot. Inky hugs to you!

  • I believe I would use “You rock” the most as my husband who died suddenly several months ago was a rock to our family and friends. I have had so much support from family and friends who have been a “rock” to me.

  • I think I would use the “Hey, girlfriend” stamp the most. I don’t have one like that and send cards to my girlfriends a lot! Thank you for the chance!

  • I Hanna would use the “Happy Birthday” verbage the most or at least I would!:) Hope everyone had a great Black Friday with lots of great shopping deals. We should have a blog entry where everyone tells what their biggest bargain was that they bought on Black friday. That would be very interesting. Just a thought!

  • What a nice set!!! i would mostly Thanks a bunch!! I seem to say that alot!!
    Thanks a bunch at a wonderful chance to win!
