A Giveaway


I’ve been wanting to do this post since 30 followers ago!  Life has been a bit crazy.  But I finally gathered everything together, and I’m just going to do it before the moment slips by again!

A few months ago, when I saw that I had 50 followers, I wanted to have a little giveaway to celebrate all of you who read this li’l old blog.  Then a few weeks later, I looked again and the number was up to 60!  Then it quickly climbed to 70, and the list reached 80 just before the weekend!!  I could not believe it.  **head shaking**

I hope that everyone who reads here is inspired somehow by what I write or by what I create.  I’m grateful for each of you, even if I don’t always hear from you in the comments. 😉  Thank you for tuning in!

So here’s my little giveaway offer.  I figured I would add one item for every 10 followers, so I have 8 of my favorite things for crafting time:

Flower Silhouette stamp set from My Favorite Things.
Flower Silhouette coordinating die from My Favorite Things.

Wood Grain Embossing Folder by The Paper Studio.
Two Acrylic Blocks by Inkadinkado.

Cotton Candy Grosgrain Ribbon (5 yards) from My Favorite Things.
Pink Sorbet Twine (15 yards) by The Twinery.
Clear Rhinestones (100 count) by Kaisercraft.
Tuxedo Black ink pad by Memento.

These are just a few of my favorite things to use when I’m crafting.  I have so many favorites!!  But in narrowing it down to just 8, I thought this would be a fun package.

SO!  All you have to do to enter this giveaway is comment on this post.  That’s it!  No posting on your blog, no posting on Facebook, no spreading the word,….  Just leave me a comment.

If you need a topic of conversation, you could tell me something for which you are grateful, seeing how Thanksgiving in the U.S. is just around the corner.

I’ll leave this open until Tuesday, November 13, 2012 11:59pm EST.  Then I’ll randomly draw a winner on Wednesday, November 14, 2012.

THANK YOU FOR READING MY BLOG!!  It wouldn’t be the same without you, you know. 😉

And thanks for stopping by today.

    I really enjoy going to your site and seeing your card ideas. I am new at stamping and not at the level of really creating my own designs yet, but I’m getting there. When I see things I like I will tweak it a bit, change a color use a different stamp ect. to try and make it a little my own too. Your cards and ideas are beautiful and can’t wait for each new post. Thanks for sharing and keep them coming!
    Blessings, sue
