My Blog-a-versary giveaway!

***This blog candy giveaway is now closed.***

Hi everyone!  Well, 3 years ago I started this blog.  WOW.  Seriously?  It seems like yesterday chatting with my Dirty Dozen friend, Denise Marzec asking her advise on how to get this buggar started.  Man, where has the time gone?  AND I can hardly believe all that's happened to me "crafty-wise" in 3 years.  My card style has changed 2 or 3 times, I met lots of wonderful friends and have been blessed to be on some of my DREAM design teams!  Yes indeed, 3 great years!  And did I mention it is my birthday?  Yep, I started blogging on my birthday -makes the anniversaries easier to remember, lol!

So, in honor of my blog-a-versary, I am having a special giveaway!  I thought it would be fun to have a little something from each of companies that I design for.  First up, Sharon (who most of you know is my my crafty idol) and owner of Stamp Simply Ribbon Store has generously donated not 1, or 2, but 3 wonderful Stamp Simply Basics Embellishment kits in Yellow, Ivory and Hot Pink (just my colors!).  Each kit contains a package of Prima flowers, pearls and 5 yards of ribbon.

Next, I have a couple stamp sets from Gina K Designs up for grabs:
Christ is Risen (note this set is not new, it was used by me once during the release):
And now a little something from Spellbinders Paper Arts!  I have 2 fabulous sets of Nestabilities -the Long Classic Rectangles Lg and Long Classic Rectangles Sm.  I don't have a picture or link to the Small set as it is retiring, but it is just like these only 1/4" smaller in scale.

And last but not least I still have a stamp set from my days of selling Ippity Stamps, House a Home (one of my favies!).

So I was thinking I should give away the goodies to 3 random commenters instead of 1 big ole grand prize?  Spread the goodies to more people, I say!! 

I was thinking I would split the goodies like this:
1 winner would win: 3 embellishment kits 
1 winner would win: 3 stamp sets
1 winner would win: 2 Nestabilities sets

All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment here on this post.  That's it, you don't have to become a follower or anything.  Just stop by and say HI!!  You have until Friday night, June 17th to leave me a comment.  I will pick the winners and post them Saturday morning, the winners will have 3 days to contact me.

Thanks for stopping by and a BIG THANK YOU all for your support over these years.  Here's to a few more!

  29. Happy Birthday and Happy Blog-a-versary. That was a good idea to start blogging on your birthday. Wow, I don't know how you find the time to design for 3 companies. The embellishment kits look so pretty. And who doesn't love Gina K and Spellbinders. I just tried to find the long rectangles, I didn't know they were being retired. That House a Home set is so cute. Love the detail on the houses. Thanks for a chance.
