Ok... now for a little candy :-) ...... The Bunny Zoe candy is to celebrate recently hitting 100,000 hits and also the launch of my Etsy store. Tina the owner of High Hopes very generously added two extra stamps for candy in my last DT package so the lucky winner will receive the stamp on my card - Tidy up Tillie and also Girl Talk. I will also be adding some jute ribbon in various colours, 25 double daisy spacer beads and some gorgeous flowers which will be arriving in my store in the next couple of days. What do you have to do to enter my candy? Simply leave a comment on this post. Even if you don't have a blog you can still join in and leave your name on an anonymous post :-) Please help spread the word about my candy by telling your friends. Maybe if you are not a follower you would like to follow me too ;-) The candy will close on Saturday 6th June and will be announced on Sunday 7th June.
Good Luck! Hugs,
So hop on over to Nikki's blog & say hi!

Mars August, 2009

Something to look forward to this summer. Mars The Red Planet is about to be spectacular! This month and next, Earth is catching up with Mars in an encounter that will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets in recorded history. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth in the Last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as 60,000 years before it happens again. The encounter will culminate on August 27th when Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9 and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide At a modest 75-power magnification Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. Mars will be easy to spot. At the beginning of August it will rise in the east at 10p.m. and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m. By the end of August when the two planets are closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its highest point in the sky at 12:30a.m. That's pretty convenient to see something that no human being has seen in recorded history. So, mark your calendar at the beginning of August to see Mars grow progressively brighter and brighter throughout the month. Share this with your children and grandchildren. NO ONE ALIVE TODAY WILL EVER SEE THIS AGAIN

This is the card I sent to Toni as a member of Jen's BRak Club

I had so much fun creating this cupcake for Toni with stickles.

If you have a chance pop over and tell her "hi".

Take care,

And, Toni was so gratious & kind to send me a thank you card too!

My daughter especially liked the bling, bling on mine in the upper left corner (2nd laying flat on the right).

Thanks Toni!
