Even though I can't mail this to each and every one of you, I had a lot of fun making this card for you today. Yes, I made it just for you! While I was creating it, I was thinking about all the friendships I have made just because I blog. I was also thinking of all I've learned because one day (almost 4 years ago!), I dared to put my thoughts and art on a blog. I've learned from you, your artwork, and your incredible writing on your blogs. I've learned about myself and what courage it takes to share artwork - and gasp! - enter challenges. YOU make me a better blogger and person, and I appreciate you!!
Today I reached my 500th follower! WOW! I feel very honored that I have had over 100,000 hits on my blog and that 500 of you are choosing to follow me! I can't even express what that means to me. So I decided that I need to do a giveaway because I feel so blessed!
I am going to have two drawings! First, one lucky winner will win this fabulously cute and wonderful Close To My Heart Christmas stamp set (and it will come with some great embellishments):
Recently I had a Thirty-One party, so I decided to use some of my hostess rewards for one of my blog prizes, too. My next winner will receive this awesome and very handy Little Carry-All bag in Organic Poppy (it's going to have some embellishments in it, too!):
There are only two little "rules" for my giveaways:
- Be a follower, and
- Link up your blog or Facebook page to Mr. Linky. (If you don't have either of these, leave a comment with your e-mail address).
I will randomly draw two lucky winners on the evening of Wednesday, September 19th, and I will post the winner and notify them by e-mail so that I can mail these out right away!
