Giveaway Goodness Reprise!

It’s Bloggy Giveaway’s quarterly carnival time!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

Last time, in January, I decided to participate on the spur of the moment. I was starting to make a bunch of cards so that I would be set for the year of birthdays, anniversaries, etc. and wouldn’t have to worry about scrambling at the last minute to make cards. I discovered that it was a great stress-reliever and that I was really having fun making cards.

I saw that the Bloggy Giveaways carnival was going on and thought it would be fun to participate and give away a set of my hand-made cards. Through entering a bunch of the giveaways I heard about etsy, and decided to try my hand at selling my cards.

I’m still sort of learning the ropes at etsy. I opened my shop around February 19th. So far, I’ve sold 15 items, although it’s been a while since my last sale. I’m hoping that this giveaway will jump start things for me again!

So, here I am again, giving away a set of cards to one lucky winner. This time I have the cards all made up already, so sorry, no choice of what set you’d like, but I think this is a pretty versatile set. It's a set of 6 cards that includes 1 thank you card, 2 blank/any occasion notecards and 3 birthday cards.



To win, please complete these steps:

First, visit my shop at http://sentimentaljourney.etsy.com/ and take a gander at my wares. Pick your favorite and come back here to leave a comment and let me know! If you’re so inclined, actually mark the item as a favorite. I’ll give you an extra entry in the drawing if you do (tell me what your etsy id is to get credit and the extra entry!).

Make sure that I have an email to contact you. If you blog and your email is easy to find on your blog, that works. If you’re not a blogger or if your email isn’t on your blog, leave me an email address in your comment.

This giveaway is open to those with U.S. and Canadian addresses.

I will draw a winner from my comments (and hearts) on Saturday April 26th so I will quit accepting entries at noon Central time on Saturday. Only those who have followed all steps will be eligible to win, so make sure you visit my shop and pick a favorite.

I will notify the winner by email. If I don't hear from the winner and get an address to send the cards to by 3 days later I will pick a new winner!

Of course I’d appreciate it if you’d come back and visit me at my blog here and/or at my shop! I’m a little over 4 weeks away from having my third child…you don’t want to miss her blog debut now do you? Better yet, subscribe and then you won’t miss it!

I’m also adding new cards all the time to my shop…so stop by often!

Thanks for stopping! Good luck!

Moments away from your third baby...how on earth do you find the time to make these beautiful cards? (AND blog??) I had three that were tough to choose between: loved the gender-neutral baby & the row of flowers cards, but my favorite has to be that wonderful photo card with your son's feet.
