BBB Giveaway



Hey everyone!  I usually do a Birthday/Blogaversary giveaway at the end of May/beginning of June, but I thought with Gallery Idol going on the timing was not quite right, so today I'm unveiling the BELATED Birthday/Blogaversary Giveaway.

It's been a wonderful year, lots of exciting things have happened, not the least of which is the release of my stamp designs, being named a World Cardmaking Day winner, getting into Gallery Idol and making it to the finals, and lots of published cards including (big news) an upcoming cover!

Now it's really not always that exciting....the day to day nitty gritty of creating/blogging isn't always glamorous, but I'm thankful for kind and caring readers/followers.  Your visits and comments are always so appreciated which is why I love to be able to do giveaways from time to time.

This year I have several different prizes up for grabs.  Some very special crafty friends are helping me out:



Altenew is offering a free stamp set.  Altenew is the crafty love child of two amazing artists/cardmakers:  Tasnim Ahmed and Jen Rzasa (one of my GI12 buddies). 

Please DO NOT leave a comment here, if you haven't already go back to THIS POST and leave comments there.  Thanks so much to Tasnim and Jen!



BossyJoscie is offering a $20 gift certificate for her store.  Joscie is another one of my GI12 buddies.  She is so encouraging, she makes THE BEST flair, and she has personalized stamps too.



Paper Sweeties is offering a $25 gift certificate.  Debbie is (you guessed it) another of the illustrious  GI12 crew.  She is so sweet and her line of stamps is just adorable, I am also very partial to her hand dyed seam binding.



I'm offering two of my stamp sets, which are both currently sold out at Neat & Tangled, On the Corner Additions and Clouds.

And of course there's that big giveaway that you see at the top of this post.  It's full of all sorts of goodies I've been collecting over the course of the year.

Just a note, these giveaways are open worldwide, but if you're international and you win one of the 'mailed' items, you must be wiling to pay the difference in shipping.

Thanks to all my very sweet friends who donated goodies to for the giveaways, and thanks to all of you.  All you have to do to be entered is leave a comment.  If you're a follower you can leave an extra comment for an extra chance.

I'll leave comments open through Sunday evening and announce the winners on Monday.  Good luck everyone!
