First FIVE to post a comment get a goodie!!

So to anyone that doesn't make cards, this may sound a little creepy. I woke up very early this morning, like 4:30....and it is Saturday so I was excited to get a sip of water and then lay back down so I could sleep in. Suddenly, all I could think about was cards. I am preparing for a card workshop in April and need to design 5 cards. As I was laying in bed, I dozed off thinking about them....and every time I rolled over I realized that I was dreaming about making cards. I was picturing paper, layouts, embellishments. I was imagining stamping, cutting and arranging. Ha ha!! Anyway, I am excited to get up today because it is beautiful outside. The sun is shining, birds are chirping and it is going to be really nice today, close to 80 degrees!! I am having lunch with my mom and other than that I plan to make some cards as soon as I finish this blog.

I have never really had any blog candy or contests on my blog before, but I thought I would offer something really great today to celebrate spring. I make a lot of things and I love to give them away. I found some really great inspiration today over at Sarah's Paper Tray. I am one of the first five to post a comment.

Now, it's my turn to pay it forward. The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you! This offer does have a few “rules of play”:

1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make --- but I hope you do!
2- What I create will be just for you --- one of a kind!
3- It'll be done sometime this year (most likely it will be in the next month).
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. Well, a pretty good bet it will be made of paper!
5-The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog!

The first 5 people to leave a comment win a handmade card or gift (or both!) by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it! So....who will be the first 5 people?

Even if you aren't in my first five, why not start this on your blog, too? Spread more love FASTER! Ready, set.....who will the first five be??

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog :-) I only got 2 comments from my giveaway too! And 1 was from someone who doesn't even have a blog. I am going to make her something anyways. I love to leave comments on people's blogs as I know how good it makes me feel!

Hi Nellie!

I love the look of your blog. I, too, came over to take a peek after reading about your blog on Sarah's blog. I just started up my blog. Any advice in the creation of the actual blog would be awesome!
