10th Anniversary Blog Celebration -- Giveaways

Welcome to the 10 year anniversary of my blog!
It was on this day, in 2005, that I first started blogging. :)


I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who left a comment
here on my blog over the past few days!
They were all so sweet!
The support that I've found in the online crafting community is overwhelming --
I feel very encouraged and blessed!

I started off by flicking a mixture of white acrylic paint and water onto a kraft background.
I wet some watercolour paint and coloured on it with some Zig Clean Colour Waterbrush markers.
Once this was dry, I diecut them using Leafy Confetti Cuts.
I arranged these in a laurel/wreath pattern on my card.

I diecut another piece of watercolour paper using the banner from Tag Me Confetti Cuts
and then stamped the sentiment from Forever Fall.


And now, onto the giveaways...

I have four prizes to give-away:

1. a $25 gift certificate to Reverse Confetti (generously donated by Jen Del Muro)
2. a $25 gift certificate to Pretty Pink Posh (generously donated by Paulina Nakamura)
3. a $20 gift certificate to Butterfly Reflections Ink (generously donated by Vanessa Middleton)
4. a $25 gift certificate from me to Papertrey Ink

There were 174 comments left on my blog during the three days of the celebration
(have I mentioned already how overwhelmed I feel?)

Sage was in bed, but I went in and asked her to choose four numbers between 1 & 174.
Here are the numbers she chose.... 15, 49, 86, 150.

So, the winner of the $25 gift certificate to Reverse Confetti 
(generously donated by Jen Del Muro) is...

The winner of the $25 gift certificate to Pretty Pink Posh
(generously donated by Paulina Nakamura) is...

The winner of the $20 gift certificate to Butterfly Reflections Ink 
(generously donated by Vanessa Middleton) is...

And the winner of the $25 gift certificate from me to Papertrey Ink is...

 Congratulations to the winners!
Please send me an email to to claim your prize.

So, that's it!
Thanks again to everyone who left me comments and just made me feel so special!

And, just to let you know that tomorrow, I'll be participating in the 
Season's Givings Blog Hop with some more prizes to give away
and I'd love to have you come back & visit!

Thanks for looking!
