10,000 Hits and 1 Year Anniversary Giveaway!!!

It's hard to believe it's been a year since I started blogging. I have had so much fun sharing my creations with the world. I logged on the other day and much to my surprise, I had passed the 10,000 hit mark!!!! So, what better way to say thank you to all of my readers than to have a giveaway!

 I went through my huge stash of craft supplies and picked some of my favorite products. I then added to the pot by purchasing a few more items. Here's the result. I will try to list everything in the giveaway at the bottom of this post.

I started with 2 sheets of 12 x 12 double-sided Basic Grey Out of Print paper and added a couple more sheets of My Mind's Eye Lost and Found paper.

Stampin' Up Large Oval Punch (I accidentally purchased 2 of the same punch. My mess-up is your gain.) and a stamp from American Crafts.

I purchased two stamp sets, one Inkadinkado and one Studio 112.

I included (Mist)ables from Pink Paislee.

Die cuts from Basic Grey

I'm not sure who manufactures these, but they are lace birds with matching embroidery floss.

I went through my stash of buttons and included a little of everything. This has buttons, brads, metal corners, theme buttons and slides.

Ribbon from my stash.

Brand new Cherry Cobbler Classic ink pad from Stampin' up. Various die cut stickers.

As a bonus seven homemade cards.
