Welcome to the Seasons of Giving Blog Hop!

"

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

I am so pleased to be part of the Seasons of Giving blog hop. When I heard about this great idea Latisha had to thank our blog readers and fellow crafters I couldn't wait to get on board. I have been blogging here and at another blog since 2007 off and on and I appreciate anyone who stops by my little crafty corner of the internet. I have learned so much from my fellow bloggers in this crafting community and if I have helped inspire or teach anyone else I am honoured to be a part of their journey.   So I say again- Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Now to show you my giveaway to help celebrate! I have a box of goodies to share including 2 gorgeous stamps from The Cat's Pajamas, Tinsel ribbon from Tim Holtz, flowers, more ribbon, blue stickles, washi tape and 2 adhesive rollers from 3M that I am using all the time in my card making!




Please leave a comment below to be entered into a random drawing to win this box of crafty goodies! I will choose the winner on Jan 6th and will post it shortly here on my blog after which they will have 2 weeks to get in touch with me. So please make sure that your name and email address is left! Due to shipping costs my giveaway is only open to those residing in Canada or the USA. 

Have you been around to all the blogs participating yet? Here's the full long list- better grab a cuppa!


I thought I'd post a cup to get you started ;) One of my favourite card creations using Laurie's Tea Cup from High Hopes Stamps. I know I am going to grab one and start at the beginning of this amazing hop!

Before you leave please feel free to follow my blog using the options found in the right hand side bar- lots to choose from!

I hope you have a wonderful day and a fantastic 2014!
Good Luck everyone!
Andrea

Thanks for the opportunity to visit your blog and participate in this lovely blog hop! I'm your newest follower and I took the time to look through several of your posts. You do incredible work! I also like to tie ribbon into bows on cards, so I really enjoyed seeing how you use ribbon. I hope this year brings you much joy! Robin

Adorable card with the flower in the tea cup. Love it.

How lovely of you to offer such wonderful blog candy. You did not try to twist our arms into becoming followers in order to be eligible (which I GREATLY appreciate!), but I am a brand-new follower by Google Plus, nonetheless. Yippee!!
