And we have a winner!!!

Hello friends! Sorry, this post is a few hours late, but I was having some technical difficulties, my laptop was on strike I guess, LOL!  Anyhow, I borrowed my husbands for a few minutes to announce the winner of my giveaway. I did use and the number picked is # 5, which is none other that my faithful follower Sherry!

Yay, Sherry!  Sherry, you have until Thursday, 26. December 2014 to contact me with your address, so I can get those goodies out to you.

Thanks to all of you that did leave a comment, I gathered that most of you would like to see more altered items, so my goal for 2014 is, to bring more altered items to you.

I wish all of you a very "Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year"!  May God bless each and every one of you richly!

Be safe and enjoy your family!

At Christmas giveaway!

Hello and happy Thursday to you my stamping friends. As promised I have finally been able to get everything together for the appreciation giveaway for my faithful subscribers and followers. Sorry, this is a giveaway to say "Thank You" to my current subscribers and followers and I will not take in account those that just subscribe to be entered into the giveaway. I will have an all open giveaway some time soon and anybody can partake, but this one right here is just for those that have stuck around, if you know what I mean.

So with no further ado here is what you can win (click on the pictures to see a CU) ;D

And here is an idea what you can do with some of the items included in the prize.

I thought it would be fun to put together some flowers, trims, laces, dominoes in different sizes to alter, picture frames, a birdcage, an ornament, bling, baubles, a tin, doilies, a ballerina (like the one in my ornament, for which I simply used stickles to achieve the glittery tutu ;D), a wooden spool, wooden doily shape ( I used one of those, painted it and glued it to the bottom of my ornament to finish it off), a cherub and some mesh bling. Sorry the milk glass plate and porcelain dish in front with the bling are NOT included.

So, what is it that you will have to do to win, you ask? Well, all I would like to hear from you my sweet friends is what it would be that you would like for me to share with you in 2014. Do you want to see more tags, gift ideas, altered project, that sort of thing, and that is all you have to do to win. I will draw a random winner via on Monday, 23. December 2013 at 7 pm Mountain Time.

From the bottom of my heart I thank you all for stopping by to visit and leaving me sweet comments, they ALL mean the world to me.

Well, this is it for me for today, come back tomorrow to have a look back at the December release over at Our Daily Bread Designs.

Have a blessed day!!
