hello and a giveaway

Happy Tuesday!  We are spending the day at home today again, have a lot planned for the rest of the week though!  Today I have a sweet hello card I made for the current challenge at Hero Arts:

I wanted to color some dolls in and came up with this fun card.  I colored her shorts plaid by coloring the lines first with the hot pink, than the orange after.  Fun! The orange ribbon is like the hot pink ribbon I have been using lately, but has better "strength" to it and tied better.  When I was at my LSS I saw that they sold ribbon by the meter so I picked up a few of the two colors.  

Today going along with celebrating my Blogaversary week I have another giveaway:  (Rather than a big blog candy I am doing 5 smaller giveaways to 5 different people)  By the way click here to see my first post written a year ago where I introduce myself (and how young my kids look!), I thought it was interesting when I read this:  "This blog is dedicated to my paper crafting and my life."  Quite true since I share so much of both!   

The deets on winning this:

You have to be a follower to my blog.

I would very much appreciate it if you would mention my giveaways this week on your blog, facebook, twitter your choice.  You do not have to do a separate post about it or even share photos maybe just mention it with a link.  And you don't have to do one for each giveaway either, you could wait until I post all the giveaways if you would like.  

You can live anywhere in the world I am willing to send it wherever.  Having small giveaways makes it cheaper and easier to send far off.

Leave a comment on this post for this prize.  I will only draw on this post for this prize.  I will try to figure out random.org to draw the prize.

You have until Monday August 30, 2010 to enter.  :>  Good luck!

Thank you so much to all of you for being so wonderful!
