Happy birthday to me! Well, OK, not actually me, but my blog! I have officially been blogging for a whole year and decided that such an occasion definitely called for a celebration so I am running my first ever competition…read on to find out more!
I have been busy this week designing some handmade greetings cards using my Slice die-cutting machine, the contents of my growing number of craft boxes and a little bit of inspiration, as always, from Pinterest. Here’s what I came up with…
I really enjoyed this project because (for once) there was no purpose to it other than to be creative and have fun making something lovely. I got to use some of the card stock I have been slowly (to Mr B’s utter bemusement) stockpiling and I was able to practise using my die-cutting machine a bit more. I am really starting to get the hang of it!
I wanted to do something a bit different this week since my blog has reached the grand old age of one and so I have decided that you can win one of my hand made cards by entering my first ever competition!! (See what I did there? First birthday = first competition!)
OK, its competition time! I have decided to give my cards away to the lucky winners of my competition! All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to leave a comment with the name of the card you would like to win (hearts, flowers or bubbles) and tell me who you are going to send it to and why. That’s it! I would love to know if you plan to cheer up a cousin, get in touch with a long lost friend or surprise an old auntie 🙂 My favourites will win the card they have chosen. For every ten entries I will give away another card, so for 1-10 entries I will pick a winner and give away 1 card, for 11-20 entries I will pick two winners and give away 2 cards and for over 21 entries I will give away all 3 cards. I will announce the winners when I post to my blog next weekend so please make sure you enter by Friday 13th September. Are you excited? I sure am!
I know I’m asking a lot, but I would also be delighted to reach 100 followers to celebrate my first birthday so please persuade your friends, family and fellow bloggers to stop by and say hello! (Plus, they can enter my competition and might even win themselves a hand made card!)
Thank you all so much for following my blog, commenting on my posts and sharing my journey from novice blogger to…well, still novice blogger, but one with lovely bloggy followers! Hee hee! I really hope you stick with me as I embark on another year of stuff!
