Celebrating 300K hits with a Giveaway!

Before I share the giveaway, here's today's card using Layers of Color's Embroidered Butterfly and Sent With Love. I heat embossed the butterfly with white on vellum paper and colored it with Copics. I love the transparent look. The card was die cut using Spellbinders Lacey Circle and classic circle dies.
Just Because

Now, I had to draw another winner for the giveaway I had over a week ago. I never heard from the winner, so I drew again from that week's post. The new winner of the new Parisian Motif dies by Spellbinders is...Vera W. Yates (Ling). Please email me, via tab above, with your address, Vera! Thanks for playing along.

If you didn't win, don't fret. To celebrate my 300K hits, I am giving away two of my stamp sets from Layers of Color and/or The Craft's Meow. You get to pick which two you want of the sets I have released so far from these two companies. And if you already have them all, you can pick from the new sets coming in June from both companies (June is a busy month of releases for me!). And FYI,The Craft's Meow sneak peeks begin soon!

In addition, I have another set of Spellbinders' Fleur de lis Doily Motifs dies to give away.

To be eligible to win:

  • Feel free to share the info about this giveaway on Facebook, your blog or Twitter. If you do, leave me another comment per day you share it with a link to your post.
Some things to consider:
  • You don't need a blog to enter. I've set up my blog so you can comment as "Anonymous." Just make sure you leave me your email or other distinguishing info on your post.
  • Leave a comment every day to better your chances. I randomly pick a winner from a random day, not just from today's post.
  • I will pick the winner among those who left comments on the posts. So, please don't enter via email or the chat box on the left. I have no way to keep track of them all. Sorry :-(.

Finally, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your visits. It encourages me to keep going with what I do. I hope you always find inspiration from my work. Blessings to you!
