I am so excited to announce that I am celebrating my first Blogaversary. It has been an interesting year for me as I navigated the ins and outs of blogland. Figuring out the technical part to creating the blog, then creating post and sharing handmade cards and crafts in some online challenges has been so much fun. All of this has been self-taught and I have learned so much. The crafting community has been so kind, supportive with encouragement and generous in sharing their knowledge too.
EDIT: GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED SEE WINNER POST FOR DETAILS. HERE
To celebrate I am having a small give away. Who doesn’t like getting happy mail right. So I am going to share some my favorite cards and the winner will be randomly selected to receive them for their own personal use. There could be a few little surprise slipped in too.
To be eligible for the prize:
1. You will need to subscribe and follow this blog. If you are already following only #2 apply.
2. Comment on this blog post which one of the 6 Cards is your favorite.
Optional – 3. For an additional chance to win you can share this post. Make sure to mention in your comment that you also shared this post.
Below are the 6 cards I have selected as my favorites with a little bit about why I selected them and the links to those specific posts. This is where you will find the details on the design and ingredients.
The cards were chosen as they show a bit of my style as well as variety of design techniques that I have learned over the past year.
Card 1. COFFEE AND FRIENDS MAKE THE PERFECT BLEND. Embossing with die cuts. LINK> https://wp.me/p8tVCX-4U

Please spend as much time looking over as many posts as you care to. There are approximately 80 posts starting with a little bio about how I got started with paper crafting (Sarah’s wedding shower and a handful of left over paper from the goodie baskets) and then moves on to cards, gift bags, boxes and tags that I have made over the past year. My hobby has grown from a small box of paper to a filled craft room in a few short years. I have developed a fun artsy style and the blog is a place I created to share my crafty goodies with the hopes to inspire others to create something they might enjoy.
Thanks again for stopping by and I do hope you continue to come back often. This year I hope to be posting regularly, sharing some new techniques and an occasional give away may happen too. I really do appreciate the support and all of your kind words.
Enjoy and good luck. The winner will be randomly selected a week from this post date. Please be sure to check back to see if you are the prize winner.
