I got this for you when I was out last night.....

Hi, Friends.....

Finally.............Here it is.........My 100-FOLLOWER GIVEAWAY!!!!  I am delighted to offer this giveaway as a thank you to my awesome readers....especially those who have become followers over the last year and a half that I have been blogging!  I also want to acknowledge those who follow by other venues such as subscribing by email.  I am truly honored that you let my posts drop into your inbox!  Thank you, also, to those of you who visit regularly whether or not you are official followers.  Your comments really make my day!!!

So......as a thank you, I have put together what I hope you will think is an exciting little prize package for one lucky person.   (USA only, this time....sorry.  My last few giveaways were open internationally, but this one will be too expensive to mail.)

4.  Three packs of ClearSnap - Designer Foils in Silver Fog, Cherry Pie, and Goldmine, 2"x8", 6 sheets each.

Sound interesting????  I hope so!  These had all been on my wishlist for some time.  When I snagged them on a good sale, I bought two of each......one for me and one for a prize for you, too!!!

Here's how to enter to win this little prize bundle (USA only):

1.  Comment on this post and please tell me which prize items look the most interesting to you and why.

4.  You do not have to be a follower to be eligible for the giveaway, but I would LOVE it if you are!!! 


Hey.....I am waaaaay overdue on introducing some new followers!!  I apologize for that.  June and July have been a dizzying whirl for me!!!

Please help me welcome Karen Franciola of Little Scrap Pieces.  Karen hails from New York state and runs the sweetest little Show-it-Off Saturday linky party on her blog each week.  I haven't won the random draw, yet, but I keep entering because that luscious ribbon prize looks so enticing!!!  Her challenge is on my list of Favorite Challenge Sites and her blog is a delight to visit.  I love seeing the wonderful things she puts on her beautiful cards!!  Thanks so much, Karen, for becoming a follower.  This ginormous smile is what spreads over my face when I see new faces smiling at me from my sidebar!!!

Next to welcome is Susan.  I am 99.99% this is Susan Hogan, but I am not 100% positive!  lol... I will assume that it is.  Susan is my second follower from Tasmania, Australia!!!  Woo-hoo!!  She is the owner over at Unstampabelles, which is also on my list of Favorite Challenge Sites.  (psssss...there's a giveaway over there, too!)  Susan also has her personal craft blog, Time to Play, which is filled to the brim with lovely projects she has made.  Thanks so much, Susan, for becoming a follower.  I appreciate your encouraging words on my projects!!  This ginormous smile is for you!!!

Wow!! This is so awesome! I was checking my blogger to make a post today and your little raccoon and kitty were at the to so I opened it up and here I am. LOL My fave is the G45 papers. I have recently fallen in love with all things G45. Why can't they make something I don't like. I mean, come on. Seriously, I have been searching the entire interverse to find some of the older ones. Then if I can afford it I want 2 of each so I can use one and hoard the other.The ones you have shown I haven't even gotten one yet.Gasp ;p

Hi Janis! First, congrats on 100 followers - I am delighted to be one! :-) Your posts are always so interesting, informative, funny & inspirational! 2nd, I love that raccoon holding the kitty! Way too adorable!!! And last, thank you for having a giveaway - you are so sweet to do that. I have always been a fan of G45 and the amazing projects their team does with their papers (I'd be happy to do a simple shadow box!). Have a beautiful & creative day! Becca (rebyah1@gmail.com)

Congrats on the milestone of 100 followers! I am partial to time to flourish by g45 my email is inajrabbit@yahoo.com

Oh my, Janis!! I just read through all the comments and see you have quite an international following! Congrats on your 100 followers (which have increased by 4 already) and for not only inspiring us with your crafty projects and techniques, but those kitty posters and cartoons. I remember first seeing your cards on the MFP challenges and coming over for a closer look. Then, of course, I got hooked on your chatty style, cat postings, and your fearless approach to experimenting with products (not limited to art supplies either, as evidenced by your whipped cream backgrounds). Keep it up and you'll be reeling in another 100 followers in no time! I tried to resist entering, but you hooked me with those Graphic 45 paper pads because I can't resist pretty papers, and I don't have either of these! Good luck to everyone!! AWK! I am not one to remember to follow directions so I left my email address off the first time. Let's try it again, kladd94803(at)aol(dot)com!

Congratulations on your 100 followers and aren't you a sweetie for hosting a giveaway! I would say that my favorite part is the raccoon carrying the kitten but I have a feeling that's not up grabs so I will say that the foil sheets intrigue me the most. No idea how to use them but I'm sure I can search online and find out. I don't usually leave comments but I do stop in and enjoy you beautiful cards!

Time to Flourish is my favorite, because botanicals can be worked into so many projects. Anything Graphic 45, makes my little heart skip a beat.
