**BUT wait! THAT'S NOT ALL... 
In addition to these fabulous Sponsored prizes, and because we wanted to make this celebration even bigger, we have additional Blog Candy from our sweet and generous HMFMC Design Team!

4. You MUST also enter a card into our challenge that follows this theme:  
***Liquid Refreshments for Hot Summer Days***

That's it! Too easy, right?!   

***just a little side note***
(The last blog candy I ran for HMFMC could have gone to any of the first 7 originally chosen numbers for winners, but didnt, because they did not follow all the candy rules.   It wasnt until an 8th redraw was done that the Winner had actually followed ALL the rules.  Dont let that happen to you 'cuz it would be a shame to miss out on any of our FAB prizes.)

So hurry up and enter our celebration challenge. Start by going HERE to see my HMF Teamies  gorgeous creations to help inspire you!
Hope you will join us and GOOD LUCK!!!!
