The draw will take place on Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm Mountain time using Random Org. The winner will be posted that evening and have 24 hours to contact me.
To enter the draw: Please tell me what your favourite and least favourite seasons are and why.

Hi
My favorite season is fall. Living in New England the colors in the fall are beautiful and you know all the holidays that you get together with family and friends are just around the corner.
My least favorite season is winter.
I don't mind the cold or even the snow because it can be beautiful during or right after a snow storm.I just don't like it when it all turns brown and sloppy. The rugs and floors get messy (we have 2 dogs)and the sun hides way to much.

Nancy Riley said...

Congrats on your milestone hits, Dawn! My favorite season: Autumn. Love the colors, the weather, everything! My least favorite season: Summer (in Arizona). The longer I live here the more I dislike the Summer ... the heat is unbearable, and there's nothing for the kids to do but swim and play video games. Drives me nuts!!!

Congrats on 20K hits!!!

Hi - thanks for the chance to win this great CANDY! OK - I HATE winter because it last so long and I hate to bundle up. I hate wearing layers and try to stay indoors as much as possible. I hate that the landscape looks so bleek! I LOVE Summer because I love all the flowers and the warm weather and I love all my sandals! I also like to watch the flowers bloom that I planted from seeds. I love summer foods on the BBQ and tend to see more people during the summer.
OK - Now what do I love about Winter? I guess Christmas and fireplaces
What do I hate about Summer? Not much but I would have to say getting tired faster outdoors from the heat.

Phyllis said...

Congratulations! Love your blog candy, but I love your blog even more! It's in my Google Reader so that I don't miss anything. My least favorite season is winter because it is cold, gray, drab! My favorite is spring - watching the world become colorful again, each day you see a little more new life.

Thanks for the chance to win!

I'm in Edmonton as well, and therefore, I have to say I'm NOT a fan of winter, either!! It's just too darn cold. I do love the snow though... My favorite season would definitely have to be fall. I love the colors, smells, crispness of the air, the cooling down from summer. All of it!!

Flossie's Follies said...

Congratulations, that is wonderful, don't need to enter my name for the candy, just wanted to Congratulate you on your wonderful blog and your 20,000 hits.

Cindy said...

My favorite season is spring. I love it when everything starts to blossom and the weather is just perfect... not too hot, not too cold. Winter is my least favorite because I am terrified to drive in the snow/ice/slush and I also don't like freezing to death. :-)

Congrats on such a successful and fun blog!

Angela H. said...

Congrats! My favorite is Fall & least is winter!!

Deb said...

I just recently came around your blog site and I have to say, it is one of my favorites.
Winter is definately my least favorite season because of the snow and ice making the roads slick.
My favorite season would summer. I love all the beauty of the blooming flowers and the lush lawns.

nitestamper said...

hi dawn,
WOOHOO !!!!congratulations on your 20,000 hits.
Fall is my favorite season. I used to live in Chicago before and I love it. Our street that leads to the park has these huge trees and youcould see how they changed leaves and colors. I really don't hate it,but I wish the summer here in Az will not reached 100, then I would be okay.

Congrat's Dawn!!! You're super talented so I can see why you hit that number!!! Love your cards, and the fact that you're wonderful person helps too! :)

Wendy @ Life in the Button Factory said...

Congratulations on 20K hits! I've been stalking your blog for the last month or so, and I'm amazed at how creative your stamping always is. You're an inspiration! :)

My favorite season is definitely fall. It's just all-around cozy in the fall. I love the crisp air, the pumpkin patches, the apple orchards, hay rides and college football...and don't forget the food-centered holidays! (I firmly believe that food tastes best in the fall!)

Amy G. said...

Congrats on the milestone Dawn! It's amazing how blogging takes a life of it's own. ;) My favorite season is fall. I love colors and the cool air...the only time of year I can have the doors open for some fresh air. I'm usually not big on the summertime, just because it's sooo hot here in TX. However, we just got a boat...so we've had a lot of fun out on the lake this year. Maybe I don't like winter? (it's only for a few months here) ha ha! ;) Thanks for the chance to win!

Dottie K said...

Congrats on 20,000 hits. You have a wonderful blog and I enjoy visiting everyday. I love something about every season - summer - warmth of the sun and wearing shorts, fall - the colors and sweatshirt weather, winter - the holidays (my favorite time of year and my birthday) and being able to stay in on a snowy day, spring - the flowers and trees blooming and knowing that summer is right around the corner. I love having 4 seasons. :)

Dawn Marie said...

Congrats DAWN!!!!I visit your blog everyday because you inspire me!!Thanks.
I love the spring time when new flowers are starting, and you can open your windows for that warm fresh breeze. I absolutely hate the winter because it seems to last forever. I never seems to snow for christmas then once christmas is over it never STOPS snowwing until at least Easter(if we are lucky). Thanks again!!

kirstensmom said...

Wow, Congrats!! I love your blog, have just recently (last month or so ) discovered it but I check in all the time to see your wonderful new creations!! My favorite season is summer, I love to spend time with my family and friends on the lake...my least favorite would be the very long, chilly winters, but same as you, i love the holidays though!!
Thanks for a super blog!!

Allison said...

Hey Dawn...lookie, you are so popular I don't even need to advertise (but I will!). Congrats on the hits! I hate winter too just because it drags (plus I gain all this weight hanging out inside!). I think I like spring since there is so much promise (I used to like summer best until the hot flashes started!)...

foodpartyfun said...

My favorite season is fall with the beautiful colors all around, cooler weather and the tastes of baked goods with apples and pumpkins. My least is winter...too long...too cold and dreary days when the sun doesn't shine. Congrats and thanks for sharing!

Jan Scholl said...

I hate winter, snow, cold, slush,droopy trees,brown stuff for lawns, no veggies in the garden, snow, did I say snow? and I really dont like the commercialized holidays that start in September and never stop. its obscene.

I love hot. summer summer summer. Humidity, dry days, moring rain storms, I will even put up with the skeeters altho I swell up. Give me hot!

ckemling said...

Hello Dawn -

Congrats on the hits! I love spring and the new babies, fresh rains, and excitement on our farm. I love the holidays too, but I hate driving in the snow in the wintertime! After all these years, I still get sooooooo nervous.

Thank you!

Oh by far Fall is my favorite, the leaves here in IN are absolutely gorgeous. I so look forward to it every year. Winter here totally is the pits. It's freezing, windy, and wet. It also stays cold for what seems like forever.........Grrrrrr

Anonymous said...

Hi Dawn,

First of all, I want to say that I love your blog and can't wait to read it each day and see your new creations.
My favorite season is fall/winter, I absolutely love when the leaves turn color and then it heads into the holidays. I absolutely love the holidays.
My least favorite season is Summer. I'm not a hot weather person.
Thanks again, and congratulations on your milestone.

I definitely dread winter - it's beautiful, but I don't like the icy roads or cold feet. Spring is my favorite season. Beautiful flowers, and the celebration that the loooooong winter has finally drawn to a close. I love your style of cards - that snowman is my favorite...it's really spectacular!

Cathy said...

Congrats on 20,000 hits! Not surprise at all, cuz you blog is great! Count me in on this celebration candy.
My least favorite would be the winter, cuz of the cold weather, but love the holidays. My favorite use to be summer, but now it's the fall. I love the cooler weather and the fall colors.
Thanks for a chance at your sweet candy.

Peggy Maier said...

Congratulations on all those hits! (and thanks for a chance at some neat candy) My least favorite season is winter - here in our part of TX we get no snow & blustery winds. My favorite season is "spring/summer", you know... the end of spring & beginning of summer (before we hit those 110 degree temps!

Nancy said...

Hmmm, my least favourite season is probably fall... the impending winter. I like winter because of Christmas, and warm cozy blankets, but fall is just so "in between".

My favourite season is probably summer... love the flowers, the sun, the heat... and being off work (I work in a school)!

Tamara Wheeler said...

well, my favorite season is Fall. I love the weather that comes with fall. Cool enough to wear sweaters but not too cold where I am freezing.

And probably the season I dislike the most is Summer. Don't get me wrong, I love summer. I am a beach girl, and a camper. I love the outdoors. But I can not handle the heat.

Congrats on all those hits. I just found your blog through SCS and am signing for e-mail updates. Also, thanks for a chance to win some blog candy.

I just LOVE Summer. In Australia we have the best summer that you could ask for. Winter would be least fave season. I don't like the cold. But it doesn't snow here.

scfranson said...

You have a wonderful blog, I'll be back often. I love fall, the crisp air, the smells of the leaves and the first snow. I don't like summer much because of the heat and mosquitoes.

nettystamps said...

My favorite season is definitely fall...I love natural earthtone colors and fall is full of them. That and the smells of Fall just can't be beat...and Caramel Apples, who could forget the caramel apples...Mmmmmm

Thank you for asking...the blog is wonderful...

Theresa said...

Congrats on your blog!!!
I LOVE the Fall because of the crisp air to enjoy in my hot tub, and not as big a fan of summer because I can't enjoy my hot tub so much!!! hehehe

Deb said...

Congratulations on your 20,000 hits!
I suppose my least favourite season would be winter once Christmas was past, January and February can be so bleak. I love the spring time when the daffodils and tulips come out and the garden is filled with new colour.

Linda said...

I love Christmas and look at cold weather as time when I stay in the house and scrapbook, stamp, sew, etc.
April Fool's day is my least favorite holiday.
Congratulations on so many hits!

congratulations on your hits!!

my favorite season is the fall: i love the crisp fall air and the FOLIAGE! plus fall clothes are by far the most fun.

thanks for the chance to win!!

Julie Masse said...

Hi Dawn - congrats on your well-deserved hits!! I guess I love summer here in Maine (but then I love Fall too) - I love the beaches here! I guess least favorite would be winter - they're long here too!

Dawn K. said...

I love summer.I am a total beach girl. nothing makes me happier than having my toes in the sand!

winter is my least favorite. too many layers of clothes, and I hate being cold. good think I live in South Carolina now!

Tracy.H said...

Congrats on the hits!! But it is not a surprise to me...you are a daily inspiration!

I would say my favorite season is summer, because that means it is camping season!! My least favorite? Well, it would have to be winter. I love Christmas, but I really hate winter. I use to enjoy it, but I could really live without it. It can snow on Christmas Eve and then melt away after boxing day...I would be perfectly happy! :0)

CAKVD said...

Awesome blog candy! My favorite season is Summer. My least favorite is winter. Probably because I'm from Wisconsin and our winters last like 9 months!! LOL!! Thanks!

Dale said...

I happen to be very Thankful to live in Canada as I enjoy and appreciate the change of seasons. I don't mind the cold especially if there is lots of snow. I don't like the freezing cold weather and no snow because there is nothing to do outside.

Michelle Nadraszky said...

Congrats!

I love Fall and it is so short here in Calgary, but, I just love the colors of the leaves and when it is warm with a warm breeze blowing.

I hate Winter - the cold...-30C, I can do without but I sooo love Christmas!

Congratulations on 20,000 hits! Thank you for the opportunity to win some sweet blog candy.

Here in Hawaii we don't really have definite seasons, but I like Winter the most because of the cool air and the rain (great to sleep in to!). Least fave is summer because it's so hot and humid here.

Crystal (SCS happy2stamp4ever) said...

Congrats on 20,000 posts!!

My fave season...hmmm...I would have to say Summer. Least fave? That's a tough one...I don't like to be cold, so I'd have to say Winter. But I LOVE all the beauty of the Christmas Season, and when it snows...pretty! Sorry, that's not a very good answer, is it? LOL

Maria said...

Congratulations Dawn on your 20K hits!! Whooohoo!!!

My favorite season is Spring because everything is green and the temperature is still cool but not too cold.

I don't like summer because where I live, the temperature can sometimes hit 100 degrees which I hate. It dries up everything and sometimes it's too hot to do any outdoor activities.

Maria

Janine said...

My favorite season is fall...I am especially missing this wonderful time of year since I moved to Texas! Not really a fall here! Summer would be my least favorite (since I moved)...too hot, too long...did I mention too hot? thanks for sharing! Lisa K

Cheryl said...

My favorite is fall. The colors are just so beautiful, and I love the cool air, but not too cool!

Dawn, even if I don't win, I need to know where you got those felt flowers? Michaels? I live in Calgary so craft stores are few and far between! Great blog by the way. You are in my top 10 fav blogs that I search everyday! Is it alot of work??? I am thinking of starting one, but worried it is too much time working full time, kids and then this! Thanks....Joelysmom

Elizabeth V. said...

Congratulations on your milestone! My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving...always so much for which to be thankful! My least favorite is Halloween...I love fall, just not Halloween.

cinmfoster said...

Congrats! I happen to like all the seasons, it's because I'm a country girl. You know need the rain in the spring, need the snow in the winter for the spring. Honestly I really do love all the seasons as there is something new in each one. Congrats on your hits. Cindy

jodene said...

OMG That's alot of hits. Congrats to you. My favorite season is spring. It means we are done with winter(WOOHOO) and I love all the new born animals and flowers starting. It's a season of promise. Thanks for the chance!

nancy morgan said...

20,000 hits is a great reason to celebrate! No wonder you have all those hits...this is a great blog! Okay, for the blog candy. I'm not a big fan of winter, only because it rains here A LOT...and that can wear on you day after day. But the good news is, when it rains, you have to find an inside activity, and...well, stamping is perfect for that! My favorite season is summer...for the sunshine = ) !!

Susan Liles susiestampalot said...

well, my favorite is fall when i can open all the windows and let the cool air in and hear the leaves rustling (then the not so good part of raking them over and over!). least favorite season is summer. we live in texas where it gets to be 104 or more with NO breeze. 'nuff said.

Eryn said...

hi Dawn! Thanks so much for your inspiration!! As a lurker, I have gotten many ideas from you to try...now I just need to find the time to try them!!

My favorite season is summer - I love being outdoors with my 2 boys! As much as I love the holidays, I would have to say that the long cold winter really affects me. I love to wake up to see the hoar frost on the trees (as a fellow Albertan I'm sure you can relate), but I must say that I live for the chinooks to come when its -30!!

My favorite season is Spring, because everything is fresh, new, and it's like a rebirth! My least favorite is summer, because of the HEAT...I hate to sweat!
Thanks for the chance to win some great blog candy! :)

Alexandra said...

Hi Dawn!! I am FINALLY getting to blog again, just in time for blog candy - LOL!!! I just caught up on your blog and you have done gorgeous work, my friend!!! Okay, fall is my favorite season because I love the crispness in the air and the beautiful colors of the leaves on the trees. It also means Christmas is coming, which is my absolute favorite holiday! Summer in Florida is my least favorite season because it is hot, humid, and sticky and I hate it!! That is why I am glad I moved to CA!! Thanks for the chance and congrats on your 20K hit - you rock girl!! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

Deb said...

You already know my fav season is Spring (the rebirth of trees, flowers, etc. after the LONG winter AND my least fav is Winter (everything is so bare, it's cold, the days are too short and did I say it's cold????)

I so love the site - you really are giving me the creativity bug and love the links for the great projects too!
BIG Hugs! Deb

peggy lee said...

congratulations on a big milestone!
I love both the fall and spring because of the milder temps and the smells that fill the air. Least is summer and winter because of the extreme temps...thanks for the chance at some great candy!!

Lisa's Blessed A Latte said...

Ok I would have to say Fall is my favorite and spring is my least favorite....I live in the Northwest and spring time can be very dreary here...Congrats girlie!!! Your blog is one of the best out there...

Hugs,
Lisa B <><

Krystie Lee said...

Congrats! As a new blogger, 20K seems HUGE! Your blog is great, so I can see what all the fuss is about! On to your question, my favorite is Spring, the renewal and warmth just makes me feel energized. My least favorite is the fall. Although I love many parts of fall, the time change and dark evenings throw me into a funk.

Sandy said...

Congrats Dawn!!
Hmmm favorite season, I like certain things about all the seasons and dislike certain things about all the seasons. I guess I'd have to pick summer as my favorite. I do like the warmth of the sun on my skin.
Least favorite season, the cold that comes with winter!!

Courtney Fowler said...

Summer and Winter are my least favorite. Summer is too stinkin' hot down here near Mexico... and Winter is too stinkin' cold. Even though it doesn't get toooooo cold down here! Spring and Fall are my my favorite!!

Amy said...

I LOVE summer! Like you I hate the long winters, but like the holidays. I'd say January until March is a real downer for me until the spring flowers start coming up.
