50K Hits so it's time to PARTY!!!

Happy Monday everyone!!
I can't believe it, at the end of this month I will have been blogging for a year and last Friday I passed the 50,000th hit here! I can't believe how many of you keep coming and looking at my work and each day I feel blessed by you all.
To celebrate I'm going to have a little candy for you :)
To be in with a chance to win all you have to do is leave your name and a link to your blog in the gadget at the end of this post.
If you'd like to add my candy and a link to your sidebar you can do, the more players we have the more fun it is :) but you'll still be entered if you don't.
This is what you could win:

4 wood mounted stamps
2 sets of chipboard letters
Sentiment stamp by The Pixie Cottage
Chipboard coasters
30 roses by Wild Orchid Crafts
Set of Tiny Type letter stickers

Now obviously I couldn't blog without a card and this one has a message for all of you that have been with me through the last year:

I Love Digi - Thank You card
ABC - T is for Thank You
Color Dare - Old Olive, Summer Sun, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla

Card Recipe:
Image - Meljens Designs Freebie
Paper - Basic Grey Origins
Border punch - Martha Stewart
Medium - Copic Markers
Rhinestones - Michaels $1 spot

I thought this was the perfect image to say how I feel about all the support you've all given me over the past year and please add your name and link below to be a part of my candy.
The link gadget will stay open for 2 weeks so get your entry in by May 17th for a chance to win.
Good luck!!!
