A Little Giveaway Today...

I'll get to that in a minute. First bear with me for a very CAS card heading off to SSS Wednesday Challenge. There's a really sweet color swatch to play with and I couldn't resist.

may13-color-inspiration-2

Scrumptious, isn't it?! And I decided to keep my froo-froo in check today:


Started with my usual Michaels white base, and for the PPP tag. A couple of Jillibean Soup stamps with ME Ocean, and Ranger Magenta inks. A bit of the Twinery Twine, and some matchy-matchy sequins. Done.

Now....After looking at the calendar, I realized that today is my three-year blogaversary. Boy did that time go by fast. I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all your support and encouragement, and most of all for your friendships. This is one of the best places in the whole world. I'm delighted to be a part of it. I made a little card in honor of said anniversary...


EZPZ lemon squeezy! Scraps! Michaels white base, an OA heart embellie, PTI sentiment, and an MB 'happy' die. I used the sketch from FMS:



Onto the little giveaway....

In honor of my blogaversary, I thought I'd give away a little something. So, if you're one of my followers, let me know in the comment section. If you're not and you'd like to receive a little surprise package in the mail, become one of my followers and leave me a comment. Or follow me by email or bloglovin'. I'll throw everyone's name into a hat or into a random generator one week from today, that's May 20th and yes, I will ship internationally! I'll keep the little prize a surprise for now...but I think you'll like it! Just one comment per please. God bless you all and happy dances everyone!

Doing a little happy dance to celebrate your blogaversary, Bev. It's been fun checking out your wonderful creations and learning more about you. My blogaversary is coming up shortly and I plan a give away, too. Be sure and look for it.

Brenda said...

Oh my I am loving that inspiration photo!! Your card turned out lovely Bev! I love that you kept it simple, but still got those colors in there. Such a beautiful color combo too. Happy Anniversary!!! I don't keep up with that so my time comes and goes without me even knowing it. lol But I think we have been blogging about the same length of time. I will have to check when my blogaversary is. lol Love your sweet anniversary card, great sketch and I love your take on it. I'm a follower in all the ways to follow. lol Hugs, Brenda

Happy blogaversary. Love both of these two cards. The first card has those super sweet little speech bubbles, like they are talking to each other--darling, and I think the second is an absolutely perfect anniversary card and a wonderful use of the sketch.

Happy blogging anniversary, Bev!!!! And boy, I'm a day late to have my name in the hat for a lucky prize - what a pity - all the knitting kept me away from Blogland again!!! Love both your cards - the first is so beautifully CAS and I love all the polka dots and the colours of the anniversary card!!! Lovely!!!!

Kim S said...

Happy blogaversary - I'm hoping for many more years to come because I enjoy every trip that I made to your blog!

Maybe no froo-froo but still utterly sweet and feminine!
