On the 9th DAY of CHRISTMAS CARDS I give to you FUN!!! In all your trying to make Christmas fun for everyone else, don't forget to have some FUN yourself! If you have a couple extra seconds I would love to hear from you what you think the funnest part of Christmas is. You all have made this so fun for me to share my cards this season. Card making all started for me one year ago at this time. I had been scrapbooking for four years, but never made cards. I just got a wild hair to make Christmas cards last year and I haven't looked back. I just love it! Thank you for allowing me to share the fun I have with you and being so nice about it! There is a possibility that we will reach another 50 comments by the end of the day and another winner will be announced tomorrow. This is the winner circle as it stands now:
**WINNERS CIRCLE** Sheila- goodies received Desire- have not heard from yet Lisa (princess-peaches)- goodies sent ~Amy~- goodies sent If you find your name in the winner circle here is my email address to send me your address: 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
