WHOO!  HOO!   

Today is my 2nd Blogaversary and I would like to say Thank You to my followers for their visits & kind comments with a little giveaway!

My friend Cheryl (Stamp-By-Step) has offered to sponsor my blogaversary with a giveaway!  How awesome is that!!  Here is all you have to do:

1.  Pop over to Stamp-By-Step ... take a look around ... then come back here and leave a comment telling me your favorite product at Cheryl's store.

2.  If you create a card using ANYTHING from Cheryl's store, link it back here and your name will go in twice.

3.  If you aren't currently a follower, that's okay, it's not necessary to win but it sure would be nice if you did become a follower of my blog and I thank you in advance if you do!!

Here is what you will be playing for:
When you pop over to Stamp-By-Step, you will notice that Cheryl has fantastic sales every month and this month is no exception!  Are you familiar with Webster's Pages products??  NO you say ... WOW you are missing the boat!  Especially if you enjoy vintage as I do!  And to be able to make your purchase this month at 25% off ... WOWZA what a deal!!  

SPEAKING OF WEBSTER'S PAGES ... Here's a set of cards I made to share with you, using Webster's Pages 8x8 Triple Pack - Seaside Retreat, Garden Gala & Nature's Storybook designer paper.  
In this paper pack there are 2 sheets of each design and they are 2-sided.  I chose 3 different patterns and made 2 cards with each pattern. 
I have also utilized the excess that was cut off in order to fit my A-2 cards.  I have cut & pasted either to the front corners (as shown on the first two sets of cards) or on the inside of the card (as shown on the third set of cards).  The ONLY embellishment I have added to these cards is either a Martha Stewart Bird or Butterfly and a sentiment (in this case, SU Elegant Greetings) ... how easy is that!!

Another project I'd like to share with you is a box I found in the discount bin at Hobby Lobby and covered using the same Webster's Pages paper pack.  

The addition of MS butterflies, a SU grommet w/ribbon and Wild Orchid flowers turned this plain black box into a beautiful trinket box!  

Would you like to be the owner of this box???  Well you can just by playing along on my Blogaversary Giveaway!!  That's right, not only will there be a winner receiving the awesome prize from Stamp-By-Step, but also ANOTHER WINNER will receive this beautiful trinket box.

DEADLINE ... August 31, 2010

Thank you my friends for all your encouragement & support!  You'll never know how much it means to me!!  Hugs to you all!!

Oh My, Darlene, these are beautiful! If Idid not see the paper in action, I would never have thought to purchase it. It is so hard to tell what the paper looks like on line, especially paper packs. Now I feel like I NEED it, LOL

Happy Blogaversary Darlene! My favorite items in Stamp-by-Step Store are the Cosmo Crickets 6 x 6 pads. Why? Because they are so hard to find! I would have ordered some, but I'm broke right now. I still have wedding bills to pay off. I love the cards and box you created. They are so gorgeous!
