Third Anniversary Giveaway!

It was three years ago, today, on February 21, 2009, that I took the leap and created my blog. For the first two plus years, I was posting away, and wondering how in the world I would ever get anyone to see my posts! It really was me talking to myself! Last May, I stumbled onto a Challenge blog while searching the Internet and suddenly I figured out how to find others who had the same passion as me for cards and other paper crafts.

I have met so many wonderful, talented artists through my blog, but even more important, I have made treasured friends. Friends that I chat with throughout the week, not just about our art, but about life. We pray for one another, we encourage one another. Am I lucky or what?

Some of my other Design Team sisters at Fashionable Stamping Challenge have recently held anniverary giveaways, and I thought it was such a gracious act of thankfulness, so I thought I would take their lead. As a thank you for all of you who brighten my world, I have pulled together some goodies that I would like to share with one lucky person. Between today and the end of February, if you would like to be included in the random drawing, please leave a comment on this post. A random winner will be selected in early March and I will post the winner on my blog on March 3.

Many of you who visit my blog are already followers, and I do so value your support, however, I am not requiring you to be a follower to be a part of the drawing, but of course if you would like to do so, here's thanking you in advance! Please feel free to let others know about the giveaway, too!

My best to each of you. Yvonne

Well done Yvonne, I've just started blogging and I've had lovely comments from fellow bloggers that I'm really starting to feel like part of the family! I'm interested to note how many of us started our creative journey when we were very young. As a teacher and mother it really makes me realise how valuable it is to foster an interest in making things with youngsters as it can be so rewarding throughout adult life. keep on having fun x
