Thanks... and a GIVEAWAY!

Hi Friends!

Today is kind of of a fun day here... it's my blog birthday! Today marks 2 years since my first blog post. Well... actually, it marks 4 days after my first blog post, but since that was a Scrapbook Sunday post, I thought I'd wait until I had a day free to celebrate!

So, I made a card for you, my beautiful followers. I wish I could properly express just how grateful I am for each and every one of you. I have made so many incredible friendships through this blog and the online papercrafting community, and every time you take a moment out of your day to leave me a comment, it makes my heart smile. So many of you are such inspirations to me, and I am humbled by all of your well wishes and encouragement!

So of course, I made you a thank you card!

I saw these baptism invitations that Elena created, and decided I needed to create my own version of the pattern she stamped on the second one. If you haven't checked out her blog, you really should!

I love how it turned out... I have to remember to combine my different floral sets again, because I love the results!

Here is a close up of my pattern:

Okay, so you might have noticed that I mentioned a giveaway... Now, it's nothing huge, nothing major... but still my attempt to say thanks to all of you!

I have an extra 2010 Anniversary Set from Papertrey Ink; Botanical Silhouettes. This is easily one of my favourite stamp sets, and a definite go-to for me.

And I also have some extra Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type stickers for you... how I *love* these things. I have them in every shade I can find them in!! These ones are different fonts in different colours, but on clear stickers - *so* versatile, trust me!

So like I said, nothing huge, but just my way of giving back to all of you! All you have to do to be entered is leave a comment on this post, telling me what you love most about coming here... is it my One Set Wednesday posts? Or is it my altered items (of which there haven't been many lately, I know)... or is it just my pretty face and witty banter? *wink*

I ask you to tell me because I want to make sure I keep doing whatever it is you like to see - I want to give you what you want!

Leave your comment on this post by this Saturday, March 10th at 5pm Pacific, and I'll announce the winner in my Scrapbook Sunday post the next day!

Happy blogging birthday!! I have been anxiously awaiting today's post, since you've given me a few teasers, and you didn't disappoint! What a gorgeous thank you! I'm going to have to re-case you! I'm so happy to have found your blog: your pics are fantastic, and your writing is always fun... and your cards are just eye-candy! I hope someone who didn't get their a. set gets to win your giveaway!

Happy "Blog Birthday". I really enjoy your posts, especially the One Set Wednesday feature. Since I'm pretty new to the stamping world, and just starting to build up my "stamp library", I would love to own the Botanical Silhouettes set! I have seen so many lovely cards made with it - thanks for the chance to win it!

Rebecca Geile said...

I come here to be inspired by your shabby-chic style!

Tina said...

Congrats on your Blog Birthday! I just love your work and visiting your blog on a regular basis. Your cards always have the perfect finishing touch...the right ribbon or the button. What a wonderful crafting partner you have in Shirley. I loved, loved my mother-in-law and miss her every day.

Deborah said...

Happy 2nd Blog Birthaversary Meredith! I always look forward to your posts...beautiful cards, layouts and quite entertaining writing. I've always wanted Botanical Silhouettes - thank you so much for extending the opportunity!

Pauline said...

Two years, you're the same age as me haha! I love visiting your blog for all of the above, I love your style, how I wish I could do the shabby chic thing like you, but I can't! There's always great inspiration here, here's to the next year of blogging for you! Xx

Sam said...

I "follow" because I love your style - your cards are always gorgeous and I especially love the simpler ones - more MY style and I always come away inspired to try something different! And Papertrey stamps - woohoo, GREAT giveaway! Hope I win of course, but luck whoever does! Keep up the beautiful work Meredith!

Congrats on the two year mark, Meredith!! I didn't realize we started so close to the same time!! You know I love EVERYTHING you do!! You offer a great variety in your posts and what you are doing this year with your "special days" of posting, I find VERY inspirational. I think I've mentioned before, your "one set Wednesday" (the general idea of it) is something I've thought about before. I'm sure others find it inspirational also, to see a variety of ways to use one set to get lots of different looks and really get your money's worth! I personally just can't find the time. You are doing a wonderful job of balancing it all. And with your talent, versatility and consistent posting, I feel sure that it is only a matter of time til a design team snatches you up FULL TIME!! Happy blog birthday, my has been so good getting to know you!!
