Boot Loot Time!!! This post will remain at the top - check below for new posts.

My blog counter hit 65,000 sometime this afternoon while I was stamping. I will show you that card in the next post.

Here are a couple of pictures of the items I'm going to give away in my Boot Loot. It consists of 12 sheets each of the SU! Designer Series Prints Paper in Bayou Blue, River Rock and Groovy Guava cut to 6 x 6 size (the paper is not cut yet in the picture). You get an assortment of the Die Cut blooms that are on Pumpkin Pie and Real Red textured CS. I've also included some beads and hat pins from the Paper Pretties kit, some SU! On Board chipboard stars and hearts, and lastly, this set from the last Sale-a-Bration called So Many Scallops. It is die-cut, new and unmounted.

I hope someone out there thinks this is a good Loot to try to get, so that we can have some fun with what you have to guess to win it. If no one guesses correctly I will use the random.org number generator to pick a winner. If there's a tie of only two people, the first one who commented will be heads, the other tails, and I'll just flip a coin. More than two people in a tie will be given a number 1 through however many there are in order of time/date of comment and I'll use the random.org number generator to pick the winner.

Picture of all of the goodies:

  1. I apologize for my guess in advance, because it's kinda gross....Is it Ringworm or Chiggers? (I'm a teacher, so I know about ALL kinds of ailments!)

  2. You dropped your just used heat gun and the tip of the nozzle did that.

  3. Ooooh...I like Donna's guess. Let's see...you got hit by a dart? (I'm imagining plastic dart like my kids shoot at glass to make stick)

  4. Looks like the mark on my leg from my laptop when I'm sitting with my legs crossed.I'll add in something that makes me happy: my 19-month-old son when he tries to say the word "blue" and it comes out, "buhLOOuh"

  5. I don't know, it looks like one of those mosquito bite welts I get on my legs! Great blog candy giveaway too!

  6. I'm going to go with the heat gun burn.

  7. I think it might be the cap from a water bottle. Then again.... something that makes me happy - spending an uninterrupted afternoon stamping.

  8. Looks like a reaction to a nickle plated snap or button on the side of your capri's or pants.

  9. I'm thinking you had the end of a hot pipe dropped on your leg :) (It's all I could think of, lol!) Thanks for this chance to win!!

  10. Ringworm came first to mind, but I don't know exactly how they look like. I'm guessing you accidentally stamped a red ring on your leg :P

  11. Did you spend time on a motorbike and get that spot on your leg?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I think it is from a snap or grommet from your capris or crop pants. I am so happy when I am camping and it is so early in the morning that no one else is up and I walk my little doggie around the campground in the peace and quiet enjoying the nature around me. Great boot loot.Cheryl Sims

  14. Well, I hope not, but it's similar to the ring you can get when bitten by a tick that has Lyme's disease, but of course I really hope that's not it. -Maureen

  15. How many guesses do we get on one post?? (grin)My first thought is that it is a case of ring worm.FAB blog and YUMMY blog candy!!!Char in So Calscrampaddict@cox.net

  16. Is it by any chance a smallpox vacination. I have a few of those on my arms and so do my children, courtesy of the Air Force? Sheila

  17. Well a few others have guessed it but my first thought was getting burned by the tip of the heat gun. I can't wait to hear what it is!

    If you're like me, you sit with one leg tucked underneath you while you're stamping so this could be from a button or rivet in the chair you're sitting in.Denise

  20. I am terrible at guessing anything. I do like the suggestion that the mark was left with the heat gun, though! If you are going to go down, at least go down doing something fun :-)I'll add something that makes me happy, too. I'm looking forward to settling in with a few good books this summer. I haven't worked out what I want to read yet, but just the thought of picking out some books and knowing I will make time to read them (maybe sitting on the back porch with a glass of lemonade) makes me happy!Thanks for sharing the fun blog candy!

  21. My guess is a tick bite or ringworm... but hope it is neither.Congratulations on your blog.Swedie

  22. I'm wondering if your allergic to metal and it's from a metal snap on your slax. Great blog!Claudiascfranson@charter.net

  23. I'm going to guess that you had your legs tucked under you..and against your leg was a water bottle lid. Thanks for the chance to win.kim3timemom@yahoo dot com

  24. I'm guessing you had your leg against something. What makes me happy right now is that school is our for the summer! (I'm a teacher) Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. I think it's from your heat gun, too.

  26. my first guess was ringworm, but sounds like there could be lots of other things.liz

  27. Well, my first thought was that it's just an imprint from a button or snap on your capris from sitting cross-legged. I thought that was such a unique guess, til I read the other responses! Oh well...Congrats on all the hits! Thanks for this chance to win some sweet candy!!~Brenda H.

  28. Looks like an impression from a snap to me. Great candy you have. Thanks!!

  29. I had a spot on my stomach like that once and I thought I had ringworm, however, it was just exzema. So those are my guess.Great candy. Congrats on so many hits!Emilyemily_albrecht at hotmail dot com

  30. Looks like you were resting your leg on a pop bottle cap and it left that make...or some embellishment that you were using...Fun guessing game.

    ReplyDelete
  31. How about a car cigarette lighter burn.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think it is something described above, an impression from your pants, shoes or chair that left the mark..... nothing serious! ;-)

  33. Hey Marie,I was just checking my blog and read your comment. Thanks for visiting and the nice words. I think I will take a stab at your question...I agree with the other ladies, that it has to be the heat gun!Kristy

    ReplyDelete
  34. You silly ladies...it HAS to be from a large eyelet!! You were working at your table or desk when you dropped an eyelet on the floor and since it was the last one of that color and you absolutley NEEDED it right at that moment, you got down on all 4's until your knees hurt, so you sat on your bum with both knees bent to the side and was searching and searching all over for the little piece of hardware to finish your card and when you finally stood up, there it was, stuck to your leg!! :D YA, that must be the answer!! LOL...at least that's what would've happened to ME!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ouch!I'm terrible at guessing, but here goes...If you're like me, I tend to have one leg tucked under me while sitting at my computer... is a mark from a button or something on your chair that you were sitting on?

    ReplyDelete
  36. HI MARIE!!! It's SOOOOOO good to see you are back. I've been out of the loop for a while.I think that is an impression from you wedding or engagement ring. TFS

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow, I like all of the answers you got so far. My first thought was the heat gun, too. But that gets much to hot and would leave a nastier mark. So the next thought was, that you were sitting on something. But what?? I really can't decide. So I'm gonna tell you hat makes me happy instead... I am always happy, when the first strawberries in my garden are sweet and red and ready to get eaten! That is the thing, that made me happy today. Of course there are many more things...

  38. All the guesses so far were things that would come to mind for me, but let's go out on a limb and say something totally outrageous like .. "it looks like it came from a coin that was under your leg as you had it tucked up under your bottom while stamping.." or perhaps it showed up one morning after a wild night out while being abducted by aliens LOL Whatever it was, hope it has cleared up by now.D.

  39. I think you got in a fight with some sort of vaccuum and it won!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Alright, although the heat gun makes more sense....I'm going to have some fun: it's the inside of a lipstick tube rubbed to make the pretty pink circle.

    ReplyDelete
  41. My guess is one of the kids was using a marker cap as their very own stamp, and and snuck up on Mommy and stamped her leg!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm guessing its from something that was pushed against your leg, like a snap from your pants. Either that or ringworm. I hope its the first one! Thanks for the channce to win some great blog candy!

  43. Hi Marie, well looks like possibly a ring worm or tick bite??Hope you are doing fine. Valerie
