Seasons Givings 2016: A special blog hop

Hi everyone!  Happy New Year and welcome to the Seasons Givings Blog Hop!  For those of you new to my blog, WELCOME and I hope you have a minute to cruise around and check out my work.  If you like my style, I invite you to follow my blog or my Pinterest boards to see my work in 2016, you can find all the info on my sidebar. 
What is Seasons Givings?  A group of stampers and companies got together and created this special blog hop to thank you- our readers- for being there and commenting with us all year!
 This hop is special because every single person on the list below is giving something away from their stash.

All you need to do is go to their blog and leave a comment.  It's that easy!  Now grab a cup of coffee, tea, or other favorite beverage and start hopping.
Here's to starting off the year 2016 in a fun way - it's a season of giving!
 My blog candy giveaway:
Giveaway items: 
1. Richard Garay Celebra'tions: 2 die sets, 2 stamp sets and cardstock sampler
2. Stamp Simply Ribbon Store: 5 yard samples of a variety of ribbons
3. 5 washi tape rolls in various widths and designs and pack of misc sequins
4. Spellbinders holiday die set
5. Miscellaneous embellishment packets: 2 enamel dots, 3 rhinestone and pearls and 1 stencil

 ************How to enter my giveaway************ 
1. Comment on this blog post.  Comments will be open until Tuesday the 5th.  I will announce and contact the winner on Wednesday.
2. If you have a "no-reply" blogger account (that is the default setting), PLEASE include your email in your comment so I can contact youThe winner will have 1 week to respond with their address and giveaway package will be mailed when I return from CHA January 13th.
3. You DO NOT have to be a follower of my blog to enter.
My apologies, but at this time I am not able to ship internationally, so my giveaway is open to US resident addresses only.

 I have a couple of New Year's cards to share.  I don't know about you, but each year I manage to send out less and less Christmas cards and this year I'm gonna try to make up for it by sending out New Year cards!  These are quick and easy and relatively flat for easy mailing.
  This is my easy "to-to" layout.  Scraps of paper, washi tape, ribbon, twine all are easy to adhere on the diagonal.  I embossed the champagne flutes and 2016 for that extra bit of sparkle.
  This is another quick and easy design which uses up cardstock or patterned paper scraps.  I colored some basic black and white patterned papers with a touch of reinker to give them a bright pop of color.
All supplies for both cards are Fun Stampers Journey.

Soooooo... Are you ready?  Here is the list of blog hop givers and it's a HUGE one!  I'm number 85 on the list and if you're following in order, you should have come here from Gracie Chavez.  If you're just joining, be sure to start back at the top so you don't miss a single giveaway.
 Take your time, this is a long list and you have several days to enter. 
Enjoy the hop, good luck and happy New Year!  
Next stop on the hop is Tania Willis!
