On the 5th DAY of CHRISTMAS CARDS **GIVE AWAY**+ Moxie Fab World Old Country
On the 5th DAY of CHRISTMAS CARDS I give to you a wish for whatever it is your heart desires this season. My heart has been pretty much given its desire and more so I wish the same for you. I loved reading the service stories you shared. Thank you for the inspiration. Today I would love to hear what is on your Christmas wish list. As always, just any comment will get your name in the drawing, but if you have a sec I would love hearing what is on your wish list, too. We are soooooooooo close to another drawing with our next 50 comments. So I hope to see you here today to get your name in the next drawing and get started on our next set of 50. The first card is for Moxie Fab World's Old Country Challenge. Mine is a little more old country meets new. As soon as I saw the Russian Nesting Dolls on their site, I knew I wanted to make this card for some friends of ours whose son is soon going to Russia.
WINNERS CIRCLE: Sheila was our first winner and her goodies are postal! Desire was our second winner and I'm waiting to hear from her. My email to send your address to: firstname.lastname@example.org
***GIVE AWAY INFO*** 1. Anyone who leaves a comment on my blog during these 12 Days of Christmas cards will get their name in a hat for a cash or if you prefer a gift certicate prize of $25 plus some other random goodies. If you were to comment every day your name would go in the hat 12 times. I will announce the winner of December 14th.
2. I am feeling generous so there are more ways to win...Many of you know that my daughter is now serving as a missionary for our church in Paraguay. I did a drawing for those that made guesses as to where she would serve. My son now has that same desire and has put in his missionary papers. He will find out on December 11th where he will serve. It can be anywhere in the world that is open to proselyting...It could be here in the United States or across the sea. His sister is serving in Paraguay. Leave a guess as to where he is going anytime before December 11th and the person who is the closest wins. It will be the same prize as above ($25 cash or gift certicate + random goodies)
3. For every 50 comments accumulative during the 12 Days of Christmas Cards I will do a drawing for random goodies. This means that if I get 5 comments on Day One, 6 comments on Day Two...together that is 11. On the day it is a total of 50 comments from all previous days, all those names will go into a hat for the prize. If we reach 50 comments on Day 10 everyone who has left comments on day one-ten name will be eligible. If you left a comment everyday you would have your name 10 times in the hat. Every time I reach 50 comments another drawing will be held. So if I reached 50 comments on day 5 and another 50 comments on day 10...that would be two drawings. So tell your friends
“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
