It's Time...

This simple little card is just a teaser. It's time for the giveaway, and this card is just a quick idea of what you could do with your prize if you win. Thanks to Scrap-a-Latte for being a part of this great giveaway. Ok, enough talking, let's get to the prize package...
Prize includes some of my favorite items: Botanicals stamp set by HOTP, 5 White linen weave cards w/ envelopes, 1 set of Sweet Chips Chipboard Die Cut Shapes by Crafty Secrets, 25 Mauve flowers from Prima, 1 Chalk Ink Cats Eye Inkpad in Charcoal by Colorbox, 1 set of 50 self adhesive Pearls by Kaiser Scrapbook, and 1 1/2 yds each of green velvet ribbon by May Arts and Sienna Brown Crushed Velvet Ribbon by Maya Road.
Now, what do you have to do to win? It's simple, just leave a comment on my blog telling me something you love about papercrafting/stamping/etc. and let me know if it is your first time visiting my blog or if you've been lurking around for awhile...lol. Oh, and if you REALLY want to win, send your friends over to enter the giveaway too. If they write in their comment that you sent them, I will enter your name in the drawing again. Oh, and I know some of you are new to this whole process of commenting on a blog, so if you have trouble, just shoot me an email. My address is now listed on my profile. I think that's it, I will draw a prize winner on Saturday morning sometime, so between now and then, spread the word, and GOOD LUCK!

Hi Valonda! I check your site ever day, just to see I there is something new! What I like best, is knowing I can create original, one-of-a-kind items for myself and friends/family! Tan

If I win I will PAY IT FORWARD....

I love your blog and your art, you are inspiring!!

PS: I have your glossy paper with me... I will be at the store as close to 6 p.m. as possible. I went in the store this morning, got a coffee and rode off, remembering when I drove through Sheridan. I am closing the store early to get back in time for your class!

Hi Valonda! I've been stopping by your blog since soon after you started it, and always love what you have to share. Sometimes I lurk, but I like to leave comments, too.
This is a great package of Giveaway Blog Candy! I see some pearls in there that are so pretty, but not the K & Co. that you told us about (and that I looked for in the Wedding stuff after you told us about how much you loved the little ones).
I love the feeling of accomplishment that I did something that stays done, unlike the laundry, dishes , and getting meals on the table.... all those other things are important and I love doing them for my family, but sometimes I feel like I am on a hamster wheel. I enjoy making pages of my kids and then slipping them in the book, looking at them later, showing them to family and knowing that page will stay DONE. It will always be there to remind me what happened, what they used to look like and how much I love them.
I've just started getting back into card-making again, and find it very fun and relaxing~economical, too( if you don't count how much I spend on stamps, ink, paper, flowers, punches.etc, etc, etc. ). It's my hobby and it makes me happy!
Thanks for the chance to win, Erin : )

Hi there,
I have checked out your blog from time to time, since you started it. I am impressed by your blog. I don't have one, nor do I know how to make one. Thanks for sharing your art and techniques with everyone. I still want to attend another class of yours.....it's been a long time!

Not only do I love giving but I love the process of creating. When I am creating all my worries are pushed to the back of my mind and I just 'play'.
I've been to your blog a couple of times and I'm signed up to take one of your classes at Stampin Cat Studio at the end of this month. Can't wait!

Hi Volanda, After being here yesterday, I went to the craft room to make a card using my sample from one of your classes I took. As always I love your ideas. Today I am going to work on a medallion on my own. After your great teaching I have the confidence to do it on my own!!

I love the buzz I get from being creative and liking what I've done, and also the good feeling I get when I give my handmade card away. I sure thank my daughter for introducing me to making cards!

Hi Valonda, First time blogger here...I hope it works! I love your stuff...I check it out often. I sent an email too in case this doesn't work! Hey, I have to least try this!
I also love giveaways...more supplies, YEAH!! I love making cards for everyone! It's relaxing and so fun!

When my son passed away in Nov. 2004 it was my inspiration to really make my scrapbooks happen. Now my Mom has passed away too. I want to create pages that will honor them and show everyone how much they meant to me. I have a lot of work to do!! Thanks for the chance to win! Carol

Tina said...

Hmm...What do I love about papercrafting?
I thinks it all the wonderful people you can meet. It doesn't matter where I am all I have to do is mention that I scrapbook and there is sure to be someone with the same passion. The added benefit is stealing little tips and tricks from others!

I love your blog Valonda! I usually check it once a week!

Ginny said...

Nice! I've bookmarked this site so I can visit more often.

I enjoyed learning how to use Alcohol Inks the other night. I appreciate your teaching style and inspiration.

The best thing about rubber stamping is the instant gratification!! Love all paper arts but my 'roots' is in rubber stamping.
I visit your blog often--since just before you changed the photo of you (used to be one your daughter took of you)-- ha!

Hey Valonda! I have your blog bookmarked...so I'm a frequent visitor to your blog.

I haven't really plunged into the world of stamping. I need a stamping 101 class to try it out. =) But when the children are sleeping I run to my desk and do something creative because it makes me feel alive and vibrant after singing Sunday School songs and practicing counting to 10 all day!

Hey Valonda! This is my first time to your blog, I am so not a lurker!! My favorite thing about paper crafting (et al) is learning new techniques, especially if it means learning a new way to use what I already have!

I a subscriber and lurker!! I love to create-It is the ultimate me time and results in gifts for friends.I have met wonderful friends on line-I have vacationed with a group of a dozen I met stamping for 6 years now. Will be heading East to meet with them in July! It was stamping that brought us together!!
