It's My Blogaversary...Time to Celebrate!!

I am officially celebrating my first year of blogging, today!! It has been an amazing year!! I have learned SO much...first, about the computer...I now sometimes know more than my children:)!!  I have met some WONDERFUL ladies from around the world and  have so enjoyed being a part of a worldwide community of stamping artists!!  I have not only learned so much about computers, but more importantly, about the artistry, techniques, and creativity that encompasses the art of card making as well as about life and the lives of others!!! I now have, at this writing, an amazing181 sweet and wonderful followers who not only encourage me by their simply being a part of my blog, but many leave comments, shoot me emails and make me feel so incredibly loved and my work so appreciated...you will never know how much it ALL means to me!!!!
I have gathered together a few of MY favorite things...no, no raindrops on roses or crisp apple struedel:)!!...I just thought of a few things that I love to use and are staples of my stamping, and wanted YOU to have a chance to have them, if you don't already:)!!
I am offering 2 sets of "goodies"::

I have included in each: Frosted White Color Box ink pad
                                    Black and White Enamel Accents
                                    Inkadinkado sentiment stamps
                                    Small Papertrey set(one is a Think Big Birthday sentiments , the other is Flower                            
                                    Fusion #6)
                                    Papertrey Ink Impression Plate Linen/Canvas
 I love my Enamel Accents, have just discovered the wonder of the white Color Box, love, love, love sentiments so added some new ones I found from Inkadinkado, and LOVE Papertrey, so a little stamp set and my most favorite tool of alllllllll time, the impression plate!!  It adds a subtle but wonderful texture to ALL cards...I LOVE it to pieces, and wanted to share my love of it with you!!  I was fortunate enough to snag a couple before they became unavailable....AGAIN!!(No wonder why to ME:)!!!)
Leave a comment, and I'll computer pick 2 winners.  I am going to leave the commenting open for a few days,  until midnight April 2nd, and will let you know if you won on April 3rd:)!! You can enter, no matter where you live!!  One comment per person, though!
Love you ladies...thanks for loving me:)!!  Hugs!! Lisa

Happy Anniversary, Lisa! I love the post with all the leaf variations. It's so easy to lose sight of the versatility a single stamp can provide. REALLY love the rainbow colored one and the one masquerading as a tree. I'm so glad I discovered your blog.

Congratulations to you, Lisa, on your blogaversary. I sent a note to you recently telling you how happy I was to find your blog as I totally like your style of cards. I also understand how comforting it is to have a "family" of support in the stamping "blogosphere" when we are feeling down or happy or whatever the case might be. I LOVE your blog and look forward to it as a "pick me up" for myself. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent. ((HUGS)) to you and God Bless.
