Do I DARE to tell you about these PRIZES?!?!?

Hey everyone!

WOW, TONS of info today....  I am SO excited that today is Wednesday, cuz it's time for another DIEDRICH DARE!!!!


This week, we had a sketch by my adorable DS Jack who actually kind of stumped me this time!  I am SO not used to super-thin main "panels" so I took one look at this and thought....oh MY.    But, I was happy with the end result, I think...check out this Gift Card holder I made....and the best part?  It took me about 10 minutes!



TODAY happens to be another sort of "milestone" for me...I don't know HOW it happened, but I seem to have reached over 300 followers! WOW YOU GUYS!!!!!   I am really proud of this.  I have never had a contest or candy in which I require anyone to follow my blog.  I didn't even KNOW you could "follow" blogs until this past January, so about a year ago, when I switched to gmail and discovered the sheer JOYS of Google Reader :)  I also have just always made the personal choice that I want people to follow me because they WANT to, and so I am REALLY surprised that it's grown to such a huge number!


SOOOO, as an appreciation of you guys being the BEST cyber friends and fellow bloggers EVAH, I am having a little present giveway today:

ONE LUCKY READER who leaves a comment on THIS POST will win this GIFT CARD HOLDER...and tucked inside, well?  A GIFT CERTIFICATE for my BUTTERFLY WISHES stamp set, and TWO Anya/Ians of THEIR CHOICE from THE GREETING FARM!

That's RIGHT!   ONE LUCKY READER will be chosen via Random.org on DECEMBER 25th and announced the 26th...MERRY CHRISTMAS...and THANK YOU for being such loyal, awesome and SUPPORTIVE readers!  I appreciate each and every one of you MORE than you know!!!!

Speaking of PRIZES, be sure to stop by the DIEDRICH DARE BLOG where our featured stamper, Debbie has some more FUN info on another GIVEAWAY!   ONE lucky participant in this week's DARE will receive a SWEET PEA stamp and a handmade creation from our own RANDI WALL!  Be sure to play this week, because that is ONE opportunity you won't want to miss out on!!!

Be sure to stop by the other Daredevils' blogs too...they all have a sweet take for you on Jack's sketch:

Thanks for stopping by today and THANK YOU for stopping by every day!  I {heart} you guys!!!
