It’s My BIG 5 – 0 !! (with a Giveaway)

** This Giveaway now closed**

I am so stoked and so super excited to be celebrating my big 5 – 0!! I am not talking about my birthday or my anniversary!  I am talking about my 50th Blog Post!! I have to say that I am truly proud to be reaching this point in my blogging experience.  Let me explain why – I tend to be a starter and then give up before I even reach mid way and definitely do not finish things! But with that negativity aside – I am so thrilled to be able to say that I haven’t given up and I keep on marching on!! And I have reached this point that  50 posts ago  seemed so unreachable and so not possible!!

I want to thank YOU – my readers and followers,  for your support and continued visits to my blog!! I love when you stop by and love it so much more when you leave me a comment!!  So to encourage lots of comments (hopefully 50 comments for my 50th post) I am hosting a giveaway complete with 2 different prizes that could be won!!

  • First prize is 50 yards of Ribbon and Trim (different types, different colors) Wouldn’t that be fun to play with?!?
  • Second Prize is  $25 gift card to a store of your choice!! (Only stipulation is that I must be able to obtain it in my area that I live in)

I will be keeping the giveaway open for 10 days – that means you have until June 14th, 2014 to comment and then I will announce the WINNER on June 15th, 2014!!!

Leave a comment about my blog, what you like, what your favorite post is – something like that!!! But if you need something more specific to comment on  – then check out this card I made and comment on that!!

A sweet daisy card made with a metal edged tag and some magic mesh!

    Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I am happy you invited me over to see what you are up to. Yay to you for getting 50 blog posts. A fantastic milestone to celebrate. Your card is really pretty with those sweet pink daisies, and I like that you are following the rule of 3’s with 3 flowers and 3 leaves. Went poking around just a bit, and I absolutely love the card you made that looks like a box of crayons. Brings me back to the days when a new box of crayons was all I needed to be happy.

    Congratulations on your 50th blog post!! That is a HUGE milestone. I either have time to blog or time to create. Doing both is hard so kudos for you!!

    I love your card above. The texture is fabulous and I LOVE that you used a metal edge tag. I have some lying around and now I think I am going to have to search for them.

    I so forgive you for calling me Mandy. I am just happy that you came over to visit my blog. Thank you for all the kind comments!!

    Have a “Fabulous 50” day!!

    I was looking at your blogpost about unfinished bags and how you found a cupcake to put inside. I love anything with cupcakes inside! A reader said she has many UFOs around her house. What a cute abbreviation for such annoying things most of us have. It’s garage sale season – just a thought:)

    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog and the invite to yours. I hate to tell you this but after 50 posts you will become addicted to this hobby. 😉 I love the most recent card with the embossed background and lovely sentiment. I also think the doors you decorated are so clever and cute. Keep it up!

    Taunya, thank you so much for commenting on my blog and inviting me to visit yours. WOW, WOW and WOW! I had no idea what dazzling delights were awaiting! So much creativity with your cards and projects, and your posts about your grandchildren…oh my! Infused with love, indeed! The little ones are so fortunate to have a grandma who creates ‘meaningful moments’ with them! The photos of the the projects you did – especially the rainbow nails – are heart-melting and heart-warming! I must say, though, you look far, far toooo young to be a grandma! I’m old enough to be one, however, I don’t have kids (only one husband *grin*), but I’m Aunty C to my 4-year old niece and 2 year old nephew. Being an Aunt is my best. job. ever! I’m off to stroll through your site a bit more before heading off to work. Have a splendid Friday; as sparkle filled as you’ve made mine!
