Thank you Followers and Blog Anniversary Giveaways!!
First of all I want to thank each and every reader and subscriber to my blog. When I started my blog 2 years ago I never thought that it would grow into my primary crafting outlet. I didn't do much the first year but then I started following other blogs and discovered challenge sites. My readership is more than 10x what it was when I started and my followers just keep growing! I have YOU to thank for subscribing and stopping by to see my latest creations!
I participated in a few National Scrapbooking Day challenges this past weekend. Some of these challenges are still open until Saturday, May 10! Therefore, you are going to see some of the projects posted this week. First off I have a Thank you card which is the final challenge at Hiding in my Craft Room's NSD challenges. You can find it HERE.
I used Stampin Up Raspberry Ripple paper and ink. I used the SU label punch and matching stamps. The patterned paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle's Vintage Summer 6x6. I have recently discovered the beauty of 6x6 for cards! I love that the pattern is smaller to fit the scale of cards vs. scrapbooking. Finally, I added some bling, a flower and tied a bow with American Crafts sheer ribbon.
Now for my giveaways!
This is a small collection of Recollections ribbon and bling in black, white and smoke because who could NOT use some basics! Qualification for this prize is to just be a follower of my blog. I prefer you follow with Blogger but I can find my bloglovin' followers pretty easy as well. The hard one to find are those following by email. So please follow by one of the first two options to ensure your qualification to win this prize. I will randomly (random.org) choose one follower to win this BASICS prize after May 31.
Prize #2 is some Sew easy fancy floss in pretty pastels and some glitter brads from American Crafts also in pastels. To win the PASTEL prize you must be a follower (per BASICS prize) and comment at least three times this month with one being on the giveaway PAGE! For you blog hoppers, that shouldn't be too hard because I have three blog hops this month. So every follower who has commented at least three times this month will be entered to win the PASTELS prize be sure one is on the giveaway page so I know you are interested in winning!
The Grand Prize:
Finally, the grand prize is a collection of TIM HOLTZ product! I have added to this package already!! In addition to the pictured, I have added some red distress embossing powder and Peeled Paint distress stickles! The paper pack is Seasonal kraft resist with matching seasonal ribbon. The tinsel ribbon is gorgeous and a couple of great embossing folder! To win the grand prize of TIM HOLTZ product, you must show me the most blog lovin'!! You will of course need to be a follower via Blogger or Bloglovin'. Second, the person who leaves the most comments on May blog post (multiple comments on same post do not count). I know I enjoy the prizes that I have to work a little for, so your challenge is to comment on all my May blog post! Finally, there will be three questions to answer on random post this month. If you are reading every post there should be no problem in answering the questions in the comment section. In case of multiple subscribers achieving this feat, the winner will be chosen via random.org. Whew! I hope that is not too hard!
I will choose all winners after May 31 via random.org and post in the first week of June. Good luck with all the giveaways!
I will also have a few bits of blog candy for at least one of my blog hops this month and depending on how Great Lakes Mega Meet goes next weekend, I may add some brand new blog candy from the convention! I hope to post during my scrappy vaca~live from Novi, MI so stay tuned!
