My Blogaversary Giveaway

I have been waiting to do this because some of my dearest friends had their blogaversaries recently and I didn't want to interfere with theirs.  I started blogging May 8, 2011.  I had been thinking about it, but didn't really know what to do. That day my oldest daughter was over and said enter a challenge, so I did, at Cardz TV with Mary.  Thus my blog was born. Because my health "stinks" I do not post like most bloggers, but my blog friends are so faithful to me anyway.

I have met some of the most wonderful people.  These women have gone through some trying times with me this past year. They all bring me such joy and comfort. Susan, Lisa, Karen, Amy Volt , Sherrie, Amy, Sabrina, Candy, Norma, Pendra, Sonia, and so many more. If I didn't actually name you,  know that I am aware of your sweet comments and encouragement.

So I put a few things together to have a giveaway.

There is a stack of double sided papers and my favorite PK stamps, 1 1/8" Simple Simon set, rub ons, buttons, embellies, stickers,  I also have another stack of designer papers about 30 sheets  I'll  be adding. Maybe a few more things as we go too.  Some surprises maybe:)  

What you need to do is:

1. Be a follower, or become one, and leave a comment on this post to tell me that.

2. Post my button on your sidebar of the gray haired oldies dancing, and leave another comment.

3. Mention my giveaway in one of your posts, with a link back to me, and leave me another comment.

4. Follow me by Linky, and leave another comment.

5. Post a picture of the giveaway on your sidebar with a link back here, and leave a comment.

6. I changed something on my blog, if you want to guess, leave me a comment on what you think the change is, for an extra entry, this one is just for fun!

That's 6 ways to enter. I will leave this open until June 1st. Then with I'll pick a winner, that  week.

I want to tell every single one of you how mush you all mean to me. My life would not be as fulfilled as it is without you my friends, my Blends!  I adore you all.

Big, big hugs, Pam !!

Got a Bug?

Today my daughter called and told me my granddaughter has pink eye!  How she got it no one seems to know. Probably from school, but who knows. She went to the DR. this morning so she is being treated. It still kinda freaks me out because of Kyce and Reece getting it too.  Or Jacquie God forbid, since she is a Kindergarten teacher with 50 kiddos.

Well I put a really quick and simple card together to give Kohlbee. Thought I would share it with you guys. She is a bug person. Since she has been very little, like 2 or 3 she loves bugs. She has books, ant farms, cages, all kinds of stuff to catch bugs so she can "study" them.  She will like this card, and not just because her Nanny made it.

If you think of her and her siblings, please say a little prayer of healing for her and protection for them.

Here's the card, I hope you like it.    Hugs, to all of you, and have a wonderful week-end.   Your Blend, Pam

St. Patrick's Day

Everyone sit down so you don't  fall down!! Yes Pam is posting twice in one week!! I thought I would post a St. Patrick's Day card. I love this little guy, with his orange hair. You can't really tell but he is on an action wobble, so he dances:))

The picture is a little distorted so I apologize for my lack of picture taking skills. I am just so proud of myself to have been able to post twice this week.  Well here is my leprechaun. Susan asked me where my little man comes from, it's the Simply Charmed cart.  I love this cartridge!

I found a few challenges to put this in.  In DL.ART you had to use a sentence from the history of St. Patrick, I used : St. Patrick's Day has come to be associated with everything Irish: anything green and gold, shamrocks and luck.

Spring Flowers

I made a card the other day.  I wasn't going to post it but I decided to go ahead and share it. I'm not real sure how much I like it.  It was actually fun to do, but it kinda got away from me I think. Any who here it is.

I may put this in a challenge but not tonight, I am a little out of sorts, so bed is coming soon.
I hope you like this card.  

Hugs to all of my dear, special "Blends"!
