Original things for original people.

Blog Hop for 2013.


Hello, I decide to join in this blog hop at OWH Stars and Stamp Blog which I think it will be fun. I am always fantastic of how other people make their cards. So here is my card
using Sketch #44;

Even though I am a Canadian, I do support the troops. They volunteered their services, knowing full well that they will be separate from their love ones for long periods of time. They know that they will miss their friends and family. They will miss their children’s soccer games, dinner with their family at their favourite restaurant, watching the Superbowl, or even going shopping at their mall. They do all this to give us our freedom. And yet, I can’t imagine of how much they miss them. So I do hope that these cards can bring their loves one some comfort.

In honor of my first blog hop, I am offering this prize SAM_0284

I have more detail photos of the prize in the previous post, “Prize Details”. There are Hero Arts Everyday Stamps, four Studio J stamps, rhinestones, Craftsmart ribbon, and crochet flower embellishment. All which you can make wonderful cards. All you have to do is a leave a comment which has your email address. And I will pick a random winner. Random as in letting the computer decide in one of those number generator programs. You have until Monday at midnight. And to make things more simple, I hope. My timezone is on MDT, or -6 according to the word clock guide. And I am two hours behind from eastern time. I hope that helps. Sometimes these times zones drive me nuts especially when I have friends in Australia and a sister in Louisiana.

So good luck everyone and enjoy your weekend!

UPDATE! ! ! First of thank you for everyone for stopping by and commenting. But I was going to ask people to put their email address down if they don’t have a blog so I can email you in case you win a prize, but then I looked down and see of all of these emails. Good grief, I am not a computer tech girl. However since I am getting a big response on the cloud background. My upcoming blogs (The second one because the first one is going to be announcing the winner.) I will post a picture tutorial of how to do it. It is quite simple. So happy blog hopping.

FINALLY UPDATE ! ! ! The drawing is offically close. I am going to be doing the draw, later on today. Mostly because it is almost 1 in the morning. I still welcome your comments, but I want to let you know that the drawing is close.

    • I honestly didn’t mean to make them patriotic, to tell you the truth. To be honest, I am a Canadian so if I did make them patriotic, shouldn’t I make them in my own colors, red and white? It just happened.

    • Thank you for wanting to following me. And I ask for your patience and forgiveness because I am not a computer geek. My boyfriend is a computer geek, but he is away on personal business. There should be a follow button above. +Follow, the + is inside a circle. You can try that, I am not sure about the email thing. Why don’t you try that, while I figure out the email thing.
