Great week for a giveaway

I'm feeling the need to giveaway a few goodies this week. I just picked some " summery" looking things for this giveaway. I sprayed some old book pages of print with some of the beautiful colors of "Glimmer Mist", cut some pieces of a variety of papers, tossed in some fun buttons, felt flowers ,twill and some CUTE Images from "Crafty Secrets" All you have to do is comment this week and I'll put your name in for the drawing on Friday!
I haven't gotten any projects finished yet today, and I had a feeling once I got going I wouldn't want to stop to photograph , post and blog...so I'm going with it now. I had these things I wanted to share anyway.
I got my new moo cards in the mail ... Woo Hoo! I needed new ones to take with me to CHA.
And guess what I got in the mail today? The cool used stamps I bought from my friend Jessica
"Wild Rose Stamper"
Aren't they cool? Thanks Jessica!! I love them!
Here is the the other thing I wanted to share. You might remember me talking about my dear friend Julie (the teacher I used to work with), well, I am SO excited about this. Last week she was honored by the Rotary Club as "Teacher of the Year" in Fremont. In my view...there is just no one more deserving of this award! Julie I am SO thrilled for you!!! Your always Teacher of the year to me!! Congrats!!!
Ok... back to work for me! Enjoy the day Everyone!

That is a fantasitc giveaway. Great colors. Fun.

Sharon in NE said...

I'm answering a question you posted earlier. What makes me happy...reading your blog about what's going on in your life, your family and friends, your artsy fartsy stuff and listening to the Dave Matthews song you have playing. That's one of MANY, MANY things that makes me happy. But then, heck, I still get a happy meal at McD for myself when we eat there because of the toy...so obviously, it takes very little to make me happy. :P

Eleanor said...

Wow, looks like you've been busy. Love your post from last Thursday - Glimmer Mists and Stencils. Beautiful, just beautiful!

Jessica said...

Great blog candy! Thanks for the chance to win!

Ann said...

HI Vic,
Sure, I'll get in on your give-away. Wasn't that exciting about Julie? I was honored to be asked to write a letter of nomination as a colleague. It was hard to write everything and keep it on one page!!! Well, she is so deserving. We are having a study group this week so we are going to have a lunch in her honor today. Haven't talked to you in a while, I am now working in earnest on my scrapbook room (finally!) Have lots of things organized into files and am so excited. Just have to paint the room...will leave that for a hot day when I can't go out. Hope you are able to make the lunch on Aug. 9th....we have lots of funny school stories to catch you up on!!!
Hope you see this -- looks like you have tons of responses. Have a super day!!
