Today marks the one year anniversary of this blog. I don’t know why it took me so long to start one, but it’s hard to believe a whole year has gone by. One of the reasons I drug my feet a little was that I thought no one would come visit my blog. There are so many talented stampers out there that have been blogging for a long time and I didn’t think anybody really needed one more. Well, boy have I been surprised!
Since I’m a numbers person (I was a CPA before kids), I thought I’d share some numbers with you:
626 blog subscribers
What I can’t count are the number of supportive, encouraging, and kind comments I’ve received over the past year. I have truly been amazed and honored to receive all of them.
I thought that a first anniversary deserves some blog candy, don’t you? If you are a U.S. resident, please leave a comment at the end of this post and I’ll randomly select a winner to post on Saturday. You must comment on THIS post, and it must be left by Saturday, August 3rd at 6 p.m. CST to be eligible to win. Here is what will be included in the blog candy:
The blog candy includes two rolls of Gingham Garden washi tape, a packet of Bakers’ Twine, Hung Up Cute Clips, a packet of Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and a Print Poetry dsp stack. Come back on Sunday to see if you’ve won. The winner will need to send me her/his address so I can mail the blog candy.
Well, if you’re still with me, I do have another Gorgeous Grunge card to share today. As I mentioned yesterday, I’ll be featuring this stamp set all week.
I added a strip of Island Indigo card stock, which was embossed with the chevron embossing folder to the side. I embossed the sentiment from Sweet Essentials with Pewter Stampin’ Emboss powder, and added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to a couple of Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons.
I’ll be back tomorrow with another Gorgeous Grunge project. Enjoy your Monday! Thanks for stopping by!
