As I'm sure most of my readers do, I subscribe to quite a few blogs that I check regularly (I use Google Reader and it is great for going through my blog subscriptions quickly!) And whenever anyone posts a giveaway, especially for things I'd enjoy adding to my craft stash, I throw my name in the hat. Well, that persistence had paid off, I guess! I recently won to contests for some great goodies. The first was World Cardmaking Day contest held by Stampin' Gal Val, who gave away this fabulous coffee stamp set from Our Craft Lounge. And look at that wonderful card she made to go with the stamps? Isn't it fabulous?
My other new and fabulous goody is this collection of Amuse's new Shimmer Couture paper. They were giving away a collection on the Amuse blog and I won it! This paper is divine - super, super shimmery, with fabulous colors. The photo does not do it justice. The collection includes solids and a brocade print to match each solid (except the white). I have a feeling I'll be hoarding these for awhile. I need some special projects to use them on!
An thanks again to Val and to Amuse for the great giveaways!
