100 FOLLOWERS GIVEAWAY!



                                                    This card is for you, my dear followers!

I can't really believe it, I started blogging about my papercrafting a little more than a year ago and entered my first challenge/bloghop on the 26th of August 2010 without really knowing what it was (-: I had recently signed up for PTI's newsletter and got a mail about "Bloghop tomorrow!" - To make something from a brown paperbag. I didn't have one so I went out and bought one, came home and made a little project, (using one of their free downloads because I didn't even have any of their stamps yet) posted it and linked it up only to realize I was one day late and the prizes were already drawn. But people were still hopping and I remember screaming with delight when I got my first comment ever (Thanks again Amy Kolling! of stamp-n paradise) - it really encouraged me to continue and I started looking for more challenges and bloghops.
After getting my first follower and being spotlighted by Sweet Stampin in September I was TOTALLY hooked ! So much has happened since (see designteams and recognition), I can't believe it has only been a year!
Anyway, today I am super excited to have 100 WONDERFUL followers - WOW you really are the best - so supportive and encouraging it is amazing. THANK YOU SO MUCH! So to celebrate how lucky I am I will have a little giveaway.

But First a very special thanks to the super sweet and generous Andrea at Anabelle Stamps! In February I ordered the cutest set from her called MUM (the one I made this card from) but when it hadn't reached me after 6 weeks I contacted her to ask what might have happened. She said she'd sent my set the day after she got my order but that she would post another set for me. I was super grateful for that since I wanted to use it for my mother's day cards (Mother's Day is the last Sunday in May here)
I recieved the new stampset a week later and could make my cards on time! And didn't think more about it till two weeks ago, when there was a little package from Australia in my mail - I open and it's the first MUM set Andrea sent me- unbelievable - over 4 months late )-: Wonder so where it has been.
So I wrote her and asked how I could return it and guess what she said - that I could use it for a giveaway instead so we agreed it would be perfect to save for either 100 followers or the 1 year anniversary - whichever came first.

So I am now super excited to be giving away this wonderful set (worth 19.95$ ) to one follower - new or old doesn't matter! Just make a comment in the comment section and become a follower if you are not already. I'll draw a winner on the 27th of August and will send it worldwide.


Here are some of my favorite cards from the past year:













Thank you all, big hugs, Karin
