Holy Smokes, 500 Posts!

Well, I've gone and done it!  This is my 500th post.  And to celebrate, I'm going to offer a little blog candy to one of my fabulous followers/readers --- yes, that means YOU

No, you don't have to be a follower to be eligible, nor do you have to post a link to this post on your blog... not unless you really want to, hehe.  Just leave me a simple comment.  Maybe tell me what your fave project I've posted is, or what you might like to see me post more of.  Or a little blurb about what's happening in your life right now... really, just anything.   And then you will be entered.  Simple, easy; just the way I like it.  ;) 

What's my blog candy, you ask???  Well how about a Triple Play Mini Album Kit?  I have an extra one of those I can offer to you.  And I'll send one of my more recent cards I've made along with it, too, but that will be a surprise for the winner.  (Yeah, I haven't decided which one it will be yet... you got me. *wink*   LOL)


The Triple Play Album Kit includes the following:
  • My Acrylix C1435 Love This stamp set (valued at $22.50 CAN)
  • 4 Exclusive Inks Cubes (Desert Sand, Hollyhock, Indian Corn Blue, Sunset)
  • 9 - 4" x 12" panels (3 each of 3 color schemes)
  • 3 - 6" x 12" Die-cut Sheets
  • 72" Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon
  • 3 Hook-and-Loop Fasteners (velcro dots)
  • Instruction Guide
I'll leave this open until midnight (MST) on November 24th, that gives you all 2 whole weeks to enter.
(I'll post the winner sometime in the morning on November 25th.)

(Open to residents of Canada and US.)


Good luck, and happy creating!  :)

Wow is right!!! Congrats! I just love all of your work. It's always to crisp and clean looking. Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous Candy

Karen Day said...

Ooh - I'd love a triple play kit! My favourite project of yours is easy - August '09, you did a card for your Humble Artist's group, using the Treasures stamp set, with the little wishy flower... I think it was black with twilight/crystal blue. I LOVE that card! Looking forward to your next 500 posts :o)

Tammy said...

Where do I start... You provide loads of inspiration with your cards and layouts. I think it was last year that I came across your school layouts using 12x12 file folders--love that and have done these for my kids. One of your more recent posts, on 10/14/10, you shared an A2 card box and card idea. I love the black touches you added (never would have thought of that, but it is beautiful) and the details on the star you put on the front of the box are gorgeous. Thank you for sharing so much with us through the blog world!

Angela said...

Congratulations on your 500th post! I used to be a CTMH consultant, and I've followed you from the beginning. You have a terrific style, and I enjoy seeing your projects.. particularly your humble artist projects.

Roxy said...

Hi Vicky, congratulations! I love all of your cards and the cool boxes/templates you make to go with them! PS - your house is looking fabulous!!!

Kim said...

Congrats on your 500th post! The kit looks gorgeous. Not much going on right now, just alot of sewing for the holidays.

pweaks said...

I love your blog and ALL of your artwork. I look forward to seeing what you create. I hope I win the triple play kit because I was without a job for a very long time and I couldn't afford it. I lost my consultant status and have been getting really creative making stuff with just cardstock. Anyways, keep making stuff and I'll keep looking at it because your work is awesome.

Cheryl said...

There is one piece of work that sticks in my mind however. It is the Baby Boy Album you did for a friend w/the quilted front. The details were wonderful! I look forward to your blog daily!

Congratulations on your 500th post, Vicki! So exciting! Can't wait until mine gets there!

I think my fave project of yours is the card I bought from you ages ago. I loved it and had a hard time giving it away, but I bit the bullet and did so someone besides me could enjoy it. LOL

Vickie
I can't think of just one of your posts that I like the best. I think everything you make is something special. I keep a file of all your posts since I found you on the BB and blogs. I would love to be as creative as you are. You have wonderful talent and I look forward to your post and looking at your blog daily for inspiration.

Naomi said...

I actually have the "Triple Play" set already, but I love your blog and creations so much that I have to post a comment to let you know what I appreciate most (and if I gain another set in the process, I would totally love it and find a friend to share it with!!!)
So, my fav card is "I Heard the Swell News"... so creative and adorable.
And, I also love the "Asian Tea Holder" and "Butterfly Tube Mini Album" and "Sky 3x3 Card Set in Pizza Box". I have all these saved in my "in box" in hopes to find a time to "case" them!!!
Thanks for sharing your fabulous creativity and love for everything CTMH (a zeal I definitely share!)

My favorite project that you have shown has to be either the recent Christmas album you showed us (that was gorgeous!) or the Christmas card you made with the "I Believe" stamp set.
