A Giveaway!!


Happy World Card Making Day!
I must admit that this is the first year that I've really paid attention to this papercrafting holiday, but it totally makes sense to me. I love the idea of devoting an entire day to something that makes so many people happy. Not only does the creating process give me a terrific sense of satisfaction (and most other cardmakers, as well!), but it also usually brightens the day of the person receiving one of my handmade creations. It's a two-fer!! And that makes me so very happy. :)

So in honor of WCMD and my 300th blog post (which went live earlier this week), I'd like to share my little slice of bliss with one of my readers by offering this blog candy as a giveaway:

Yes, it's a little Halloween-flavored kit of papercrafting supplies including a 12 pack of 12 x 12 specialty papers from K&Company's Spooktacular collection, a pair of Halloween paper punches from EK Success, and an adhesive gem spider web from Colorbok. All this Halloween goodness because I've had Halloween on the mind so much recently, having made six Halloween cards this week. In case you missed them, you can find links to all of them here:

Monday: Boo! to You (1 card)
Wednesday: Jack O' Lanterns (3 cards: orange, purple, and green)
Thursday: Halloween Bingo (1 card)
Friday: Spooky Chandeliers (1 card)

So here's how you can enter my random drawing for this Halloween prize package:
  1. take a look at the Halloween cards that I made this week(the links are listed above),
  2. and then come back here to leave me a comment on this post telling me which one was your favorite!!
That's it!! You don't have to be a follower or anything, just be sure that I have some way of contacting you (either through your blog or by including an email address in your comment). Only one comment per person--unless you are a follower (or become one!) and then you are welcome to leave a second comment telling me so for a second chance in the drawing.

Comments will be open until Thursday, October 6, at 5 p.m. EDT. I'll announce the winner here in a blog post on Friday, October 7, and will try to contact the winner directly as well so you don't have to remember to check back. ;)

Thanks for stopping in today. Have a terrific World Card Making Day!
Emily

Hey Emily-Bar none my favorite is the Halloween Bingo card. It reminds me of my dearly departed Mother-In-Law who loved Bingo. My DH took me to Bingo to meet her when we were dating. He told me she was hard of hearing so I would have to speak up to talk to her. Well, I fell for that one-he played a joke on me. This card reminds me that her first impression of me was that I was a little monster...lol

Happy WCMD, I'm not sure I'm going to get caught up in the Halloween card making trend, but loving checking out your crafty creations, the spooky chandeliers is my fav (the web!).

Scrappy Jackie said...

My favorite card is the one with the chandeliers and the shiny cobweb on it. I love wow it just pops! The others are all really cute too. My second favorite is the bingo card. Thanks for sharing your fun cards with us. Pjritsema at gmail dot com

My fave is the chandelier spooky card. Love the distress look and design. I am loving Halloween cards this year...so much fun to make. Happy WCM Day and congrats on your fun blog!

Anne Tussing said...

I love all the cards!! I think my favorite is the Halloween Bingo card. Great LO and design! I also like the funky web you created on your Spooky Chandliers card. And then there's the twine grass that you created on the jack o'lantern card.......Thanks for a chance to win some Halloween fun and for sharing your creations!!

I have to say I have been lacking a little with my card making.. Been playing a lot with mixed media. I always love seeing your cards. and I have to say I really love all three here.. But if I absolutely had to pick one it would be the spooky chandeliers..

I hope you are having a happy weekend..

Hugs, Linda

Spooky Chandeliers is my fave! Love all the components.... the stamps, the web background, the thread and the spooky sticker, and the kraft cardstock. Very nice!

Hi Emily...I love all of them! I was so impressed with the twine sewn on the one with the little pumpkins (which were all just so darn cute!) and the Bingo one is adorable with his spider web but I also like his orange brother on the stripes with the twine! The chandelier one is so elegantly spooky.(and I did not know I could heat emboss with a glaze pen! thanks for the tip!) Nope, can't pick just one out of the bunch because they are all awesome!
Thanks for sharing them and for the inspiration! I am now brave enough to make purple pumpkins! Hehehe! :)
Hope you had a great WCMD!

Emily (stampingout on SCS) said...

Thanks for the chance at this awesome prize package! I love all of your wonderful cards, but the chandelier card is my favorite! Love that. :)

Meg said...

Oh, the spooky chandelier is definitely my favorite, Emily! It so perfectly Halloween, but not your standard Halloween images.

Congrats on 300 posts!

Anita said...

Hi Emily. Fabulous Halloween candy you're offering up. My favorite is definitely Halloween Bingo. I just adore Mr. Smiles - he's such a cute monster. Thanks for the chance to win.

A belated Happy Cardmaking Day to you! I did not craft, but sat in a craft room with Andrea - does that count? Hee hee. It's nice of you to offer Halloween blog candy! I love K & Co. :)

I'm a pioneer Follower of yours, so I'm throwing my hat in the ring for a second chance at winning!

I really like all of them but I'll have to go with 'Jack O' Lanterns'..love all of those but the one that really catches my eye in that group is the one with the twine grass.

Making us pick a favourite is kinda mean, Emily. If I've GOT to, then I think I pick the Spooky Chandeliers. I reserve the right to change my mind :) Happy WCMD to you too, belatedly, and woohoo! on 300 posts :)

I love all your cards, but I guess if I had to pick it would be a toss up between Boo! to You and Halloween Bingo! :-)
