How many jelly beans?

One of the nice things about stampers is that they are SO GENEROUS! Whenever I like a stamp set...not enough to buy, but one that I'd love to use on a few cards...I can find a stamper willing to send me a few plain images stamped on white or vanilla CS. Also, just think of all that blog candy that is out there. Fun stampers are giving away fun goodies. Here is YOUR chance to win some goodies.

Since all of my images are stored in a plain white lunch tin, I thought someone out there in stampland would LOVE a decorated tin for their own images!!



B/c DD loves the back and thinks the frog needs a crown:



This beauty even comes with dividers!




But wait, that is not all you will receive...The winner of this contest will receive a bunch of card bases, envelopes, scalloped punches and middles (oval, circle and square) in their favorite colors!! (I want this candy to be something that you can use. We all have different favorite colors that we use in our card making. The selection below is NOT what you'll receive. You'll get more and in your personal color choices.)



To win...

Make a guess of how many jelly beans fit in a larger sized SU stamp case. You know the one...the size that background stamps come in. To help you visualize, here are some jelly bean Vannas. (A rare pix of DD smiling!)





One more shot in case you are counting the jelly beans one by one:



Of course, you all want something to sweeten your odds of winning this fine selection of Blog Candy and I have just the ticket! If you know blog candy contests, you probably know Allison of StampinWhenICan Fame. If you send Allison, the "Blog Candy Hound" a RAK, you will get an extra entry for this jackpot. (Email me at dawnmercedes at hotmail for her addy!) I will draw the name on the Easter Sunday. That gives you plenty of time to make and mail out a RAK to Allison...and guess the number of jelly beans in that stamp case!

Have Fun!!

EDITED to say: Read the above post about how I realized this is actully two blog contests! So there will be 2 prizes. Post your jelly bean guesses to this entry. When you send a RAK to Allison, let me know on the above post by clicking here.
