It's a N.E.W. Raise the Bar Challenge!

Hello Blogger friends!  We are home storming the Orlando theme parks from the moment they opened til closing!  It's with very blurry eyes and still riding the theme parks high that I finally get to the computer!  We had soooo much fun, and aside from a small bit of very cold weather on day #2 (which I loved!!!), it was a perfect trip and my son was so excited to finally ride all the "big boy" rides  and keep up with  his daredevil sisters {and mom .... hee hee!} 

I left my laptop at home so recharge and have fun with the family - to have brought it would have meant peeking at it here or there on the 'net!  So without further waiting, the blog candy winner via RNG (which will not link over as a picture for some reason) is ....

               True Random Number Generator
               Min: 1

And if I counted right that means Jimmylynn is a winner!  Congratulations and please contact me at Kelnkids@aol.com to get your mailing information.  Thanks to all who played and stay tuned for some Birthday Blog Candy coming up! 

And much to my dismay, I see my card didn't launch on Friday!  I was so excited to learn when I played along in the Raise The Bar Challenge that I scored a guest spot in the upcoming challenge (now current challenge - check it out here!)  The theme is N.E.W. - to use nesties, embellishements and a mostly white card.   This was my take and this card was sent to a very dear friend last week to let her know how much she is appreciated and her hard work, fellowship and friendship is never far from my heart :)  

Big hugs to all!   I can't wait to see what you've all been up to on your blogs!
