Blog Candy for my Anniversary - This post will remain on top check below for newer posts

     It all began several years ago when I joined Splitcoaststampers.....I was in awe!!  So many creative people and ideas....I could sit for hours and browse.  Notice I say browse because I was scared to death to leave a comment, I wasn't even sure I knew how.  As I perused the gallery I kept seeing things like "further deets on my blog at:" - what was this blog world and did I dare venture in?  Did I even know how to venture in.
     So began the research, one thing led to another and I created my first only post saying 'more to come'.  Then things got busy and when I finally got around to logging in Blogger had made some changes and I had lost my header and things were a disaster - LOL - was this really meant to be for me??  But that creative and competative streak in me kicked in.  I may be senior status at some places but that didn't mean I couldn't learn how to do this.   Blogger really did make it easy and  I got my header, and widgets all lined up and jumped in with my first post....I was even brave enough to begin posting on Splitcoaststampers!!!
     So here I sit a year after my first real posts - feeling pretty proud of myself for having gotten this far. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed following and visiting so many of you - and the fun I have had in challenges.  My husband laughed at me when I did the 'happy dance' the first time I won a blog hop.  I did an even bigger dance later when I was  recognized over at Our Daily Bread Designs and Stampin Sisters In Christ for some of my cards.
     It seems only fair I offer some Blogoversary Candy to those who check my blog out and make those lovely comments that bring a smile to my face.  With the name Stamping Cowgirl it only seems appropriate that my candy have a western theme.
      If you want to post my blog candy on your blog for others that would be great, if you become a new follower as well (mention it in your post below) I will put your name in the meantime if you leave a comment below on this post, at the end of the month I will randomly pull a number and send you the goodies below.  Thank you everyone in advance for the times you have inspired me and brought a smile to my face when I read your comments.....and thank you for challenging me to be more creative every time I visit one of your blogs.

There are a total of 20 sheets of 12 x 12 paper all Cowgirl, western trim and my fav Horse stamp.
If I find some more western themed things before the drawing I will add them to this.


  1. Love your horse themed cards. I am a new follower as well. Out stories are similar, I just started my blog last month. I look forward to seeing more of your designs.

  2. Sherry, your story sounds fairly similar to mine. My blog is coming up to its one year anniversary and I started out as petrified as you were.

    You have come a long way and you are doing a fabulous job.

    Happy Blogaversary and blessings on your day.


  3. Happy Blogaversary Sherry!!! I remember being terrified too! Scared NO one would come to visit this little old gramma; scared they'd laugh me off blogger! LOL! I have met so many wonderful friends through this venture, and you are one of them! I so appreciate your heart for God and the sweet comments you leave! Your support of SSIC and ODBD is such a blessing to me! You have created a GREAT blog and your light shines!!! Congrats on this milestone!!!

  4. wow, happy anniversary or blogiversary lol, I started out quite the same way you did, and I just started my first blog on Oct. 6th and I joined TO on the 3rd, I love the stamp set you have chosen, I don't believe I have ever seen a set like it, I love horses, they are gorgeous creatures. I look forward to my first yr as a blogger and hope people enjoy mine as much as they enjoy yours and so many others, you have a very nice blog and are very creative, tfs with us

  5. Wow, Sherry, I remember seeing your first blog. You have done a fabulous job and your work is awesome. I still haven't figured out how to do the watermark. I love the cards that you have done for Our Daily Bread and Stamping Sisters in Christ. But, I know that it started with those wonderful western cards. Enjoy your trip again. Take care and congrats on your blogaversary.

  6. I really enjoyed looking through your blog and I would have to say your western cards are my favorites as well, course I live on a farm so I may be biased there ;o) Congratulations on your one year blogiversary, that really is a great accomplishment. I think I'm in my second month, lol, but I absolutely love it. Blessings!

  7. Thanks for bringing a smile to my face today!

  8. Lovely blog! Congrats on your first year. I started out just the same, and now have two blogs, one for the horses and one for my cardmaking. Blessed to find your blog today.
