Blog Candy

 
We're getting close to adding our 500th member to the EnjoyMichaelStrongstamps yahoo group. To honor this milestone, I'm giving away three sets of my just released Paisley stamps. All you have to do add a comment to this blog entry. As soon as we reach our 500th member, we'll pick three names at random and send out the stamps. Good luck!

I love these paisleys, Mike !
They're awesome.... thanks for making them even though I need to save in order to get them, since my employer went bankrupt right before Christmas.
But they are on my wish list for sure ! All the best for 2010 BTW.

I made a comment early today but I don't see it -- so I'll just have to repeat myself. Now, what did I say? :)

I absolutely love the card posted here! I would love to try to re-create it, but first I need to get my hands on the Paisley stamps! I've got my fingers and toes crossed that I'll win the candy.

Mike, thanks for all you do!
