First Blog Giveaway!

I nearly spent an arm and a leg on this lovely Autumn Leaves acrylic stamp by Rhonna Farrer when I saw it on eBay.

But THEN ... I was at Archiver's over the weekend, and what did I find in the Hot Spot section for $1.99? The BIRD! And others too!

I bought the bird, flowers, and love. There was only one bird, but I bought an extra of the flowers and love to share with my blog readers (if there are any readers)!

Comment here if you want in on the drawings! The drawings will take place on the evening of Friday, February 2 after I get home from my cousin's 26th birthday celebration dinner. :) One lucky winner will get the flowers stamp, and one will get the love stamp.

*Plug for your Local Store*
Stores like Archiver's are fine and dandy, but please support your local scrapbooking or stamping store first. They need your business!

Mmm ... ribbon. I love ribbon.

I was just planning a big order at my favorite ribbon site, and thought I'd share them with you! In all of my classes, there is always someone who asks where I buy my glorious ribbon.
