6 New Followers!! --- Shall I plan a Giveaway????

"Pussy-cat, pussy-cat, where have you been?
I've been to London to look at the Queen.
Pussy-cat , pussy-cat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under the chair."

Hi, Friends.....

I am soooooooooooooooooo excited to see that I have 

SIX NEW FOLLOWERS!!!   

That makes 26 right now....plus a few that follow by email.  Thank you, one and all, for the kindness and support you show me with your lovely comments and by choosing to become followers.  Since I am still so new to blogging, it is a real thrill to see that number inch its way a little higher every few days.  

So you might have gotten a clue from the post title about what I am thinking of doing to celebrate my new followers.  But first.....I want to take a moment to acknowledge my brand-new followers and show them the ginormous smile that spreads all over my face whenever I see a new follower.  These are not in any particular order:

1.  Shirley Q at My Pinkie is Inkie in BoxertownIsn't that one of the cutest blog names ever???   Thank you so much, Shirley, for becoming a follower.  I appreciate your comments and your beautiful sample cards on MFP challenges!!  This ginormous smile is for you!!

:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))


2.  Darnell Knauss at djkardkreationsI have you to thank for several of my new followers in addition to yourself.  Thanks again for that wonderful NBUS challenge and for introducing me to some new bloggy friends!!!  Here's a ginormous smile for you, too.....and NO those are not double, triple, quadruple chins!!!  Ha!

:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

3.  Lynn Wallan-Smith at Lynnz Cards.  Ah, yes..."Here crafty is a good thing!"  :)  Thank you so much, Lynn, for choosing my blog to comment on in Darnell's NBUS challenge.  I am so happy to get to meet you.  Here's your ginormous smile for becoming a new follower!!

:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Can you see that in my invisible yellow font color?  Hope so, cuz I cannot!  Ha.  Yah, I really can....sort of.  :)

4.   Angie at I would rather be stamping has a must-see adorable photo of her black kitty named Storm on her sidebar.....looking extremely regal.  LOVE it!!!  Storm might actually be a dark Tortie, I can't tell for sure.  Angie, along with all the rest of the MFP Challenge DT members, leaves such sweet and supportive comments.  They are so encouraging and each of them are the bloggers I want to be when I grow up.  That might take awhile....  :)  Angie, this ginormous smile is for you!!!

:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

5.  Desire Fourie at Doing LifeDesire is on the DT at the Path to Positivity that held a challenge I entered.  Thanks so much for choosing to become a follower.  I know DT members comment on countless blogs, but I appreciate that you visited mine and decided to hit the Follow button.  Here's your ginormous smile!!!

:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))


6.  Nancy Williams at What's on My Kitchen Counter.  Nancy is another MFP Challenge DT member that is wonderfully supportive and encouraging to me.  Thank you so much for going the extra mile and signing up as a follower.  It means a lot to me!!  Here's one of those trademark ginormous smiles for you, too!!!

:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))


THANK YOU to EACH of my followers, new ones and those already on board with me, for your amazing support!!  

Now..............I am thinking of having a.........

GIVEAWAY!!!

Is anyone in favor of that???????

I am getting close to 30 followers, but I think I would like to set my sights a little higher than that and shoot for a giveaway when I reach 50 followers......also thinking that will give me about 3 years to gather some goodies together!  lol.....

So.....what do you think?  Does a giveaway sound good???  Did you read down this far????  

Hello.  Hello.  Can you hear me now?...

Janis this is so special the way you welcome your new Followers and thank you for also becoming my latest Follower. No ways, I would rather say give it three weeks to reach fifty followers, than three years lol.

Thank you for the ginormous smile of welcome, Janis!! I am very pleased to see that you are following my example of introducing your new followers! YOU are going the extra mile because I know that it takes time and effort to gather the information for the introductions! I wish you all the best in having a giveaway when you reach 50 followers! I'm sure it won't be long!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

Janis said...

Thanks, Darnell!! I love getting to introduce my new followers in an actual post. I had been thanking them in a reply to their comment, but this is better!! And more fun!!! Yay!

Thanks for your encouragement and support!!!

What fun to get new followers. We all love that feeling when we find we have just gotten another follower. It never gets old. I think you will get 50 followers quicker than you think. No three years. :) Thank you for the ginormous smile and for providing a link to my blog. I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful cards.
