The Race to 2000...Giveaway Annoucement

We all set goals (at least most of us).  Some we actually achieve and some we have to revisit and revise.  One of my goals was to hit 2000 subscribers on my YouTube Channel by April 19th (that was my birthday).  I realized however at the beginning of the month that achieving this goal by the 19th was not going to happen, so I revisited and revised it.  My new goal is to reach 2000 or more subscribers by May 1st. This is SO doable with your help and a GIVEAWAY, I am already so close!  I ordered a BUNCH of stuff from the Stampin’up! Retirement list and I am packing it all up into individual goodie bags to giveaway.  I will post a video announcing the giveaway this afternoon but basically, you need to subscribe or be a subscriber to my channel (I will verify before awarding), and leave a comment on this blog post or the giveaway video when it posts about a goal you set and achieved or revised.  I will pick 3 winners AFTER I reach 2000 subscribers. In addition, if you place an order with me using the Hostess Code: SPUWKNT9 between now and May 10th, I will send you a goodie bag for every $25 you spend.

Thanks for following me on this journey and good luck!

May Featured Stamp of the Month and Gift with Hostess Code SPUWKNT9

Happy Monday everyone!

Sorry I wasn't able to post the Featured Stamp Set on the 25th.  My family and I made a quick trip to the beach and I was completely unplugged for the weekend.  So, with out further ado, the Featured Stamp Set for May is Age Awareness....

This is such a fun set, and thankfully...NOT ON THE RETIRED LIST.  If you already have this set and would like to swap it out (must be less than or equal to $15.95), please email me by May 5th.

I have a wide selection of items from the Retired List that I have packaged up into goodie bags and will be giving away 1 for every $25 ordered (before tax and shipping) please use Hostess Code: SPUWKNT9.  This hostess code and offer is only good until May 10th.

Painted Petals One Layer Mother's Day Card

Hi Everyone, 

Sorry for the delay in posting, I have been busy as usual, but hope you haven't missed any of my videos.  Even if I don't post on the Blog, I typically get at least 2 video's up each week. This card is a one layer card and the sentiment could be changed for many occasions. I just chose this for Mother's Day. I also use the rock and roll technique for this card, but sponge daubers work much better for inking the edges.

Supplies Used:
Whisper White CS
Blushing Bride Ink
Strawberry Slush Ink
Wild Wasabi Ink
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
