Is it my blogaversary again?!

balloons

How does this keep getting past me? Remember last year it snuck up on me and I said to come back soon I’d be posting blog candy…uh, then I never got around to it and before you know it another year has gone by! Today is my 3rd blogaversary and to make up for being a huge slacker last year I am going to chose 2 winners from comments on this here post! I have made up two packages, each containing a Flourishes stamp set and a pad of patterned paper. I also have a Martha Stewart cardinal punch and several High Hopes images. I will divide up the goodies and pick two random winners!

So let’s give you something to comment on…I never seemed to get around to posting this:

I attended a wedding at the end of September and this was the card I gave. It was a true autumn wedding and these were the bridal colors. I embossed the white shimmer background panel with the In Bloom Impression plate from Papertrey Ink. I then used the In Bloom stamp set, stamping the largest flower on patterned paper from Autumn Abundance and the leaves on another pattern. The word Cherish is from an SU set and a few simple pearls just finish it off.

Ok, there you have it! Here are the rules! Hate them, I know, I know….

  1. You must be a follower of my blog to be eligible to win a prize!
  2. Leave a comment on this post-only one please :)
  3. You have until 11:59pm eastern time Friday January 14th. I will choose 2 random winners on Saturday morning.
  4. Don’t forget to leave me a way to contact you if you do not have a blog or an email address on your profile!

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments and words of encouragement! I wish I could give every loyal follower a prize!Good luck!

Check back tomorrow for the first Flourishes January sneek peak!
