Grateful for You!!

Hello my sweet blogging friends! Do you know how grateful I am for all of you who follow my blog, take the time to pay me a visit, leave sweet comments? Well trust me....you're all sweethearts!!! And for that very reason I am having a blog candy give-away! I'm making this easy peasy for you...a simple comment.

Here' the scoop...!!! Leave a comment on this post telling me three of your favorite, must haves, or go to items used in your card making. I will do two random selections on Saturday March 3rd for two packages I have put together. So please leave your comment by Friday the 2nd at midnight! The first comment selected will receive a package containing some of my favorite things! Take a look.....


If any of you know me very well you know I love, love, love polka dots ~hee!! You'll notice the polka dot background stamp by DeNami, polka dot kraft envelopes by Martha Stewart and some polka dot ribbon. Next on my list of favorites would be the bling...most especially tiny bling! Just ask my sister-in-law (aka:stamping buddy) she know I like all things small!!! So I've included an assortment of tiny goodies to add to your little works of art; my favorite sparkly flower gems, teeny keys, a new find of vintage safety pins...a handful of small goodies!
While I don't add many large ribbon bows to my cards, I do have two favorite trims. One little lace lovely that I get from Hobby Lobby and the ever so sweet mini pom pom trims. The one included here is from Joann. I like it because it's not too white. The fruit punch Stickles are the most adorable shade of sparkly pink and the rouge Color Box chalk ink is just the prettiest of pinks. Well I think you get the idea...these are some items I am quite smitten with and I think you'll enjoy them.

The second random comment will receive a package of 6x6 papers ~ another item I am completely addicted to!!! Here's a peek!


There are 16 different paper collections here with an average of 6 sheets each. These are from BasicGrey, Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye, Lily Bee Design, Authentique and Jillibean soup. More of the ever so sweet mini pom pom trims in fun bright colors, an assortment of twine, ribbons and trims.

This is just my way of saying thank you to all of you! I hope to see many comments on what your favorites are! Have a beautiful day and as always thanks for stopping by ~Lisa

There is so much love going around in blogland this week because of Leibster. I was so incredibly honoured last May when you selected me for it.

Your post today shows once again how much of a sweetheart you are. Funny I was just thinking earlier today how cool it would be to know what everyone's go to items are. Telepathy? My go to items are my dies, my current fav 'stamp-du-jour', and most definitely my foam squares.

And I am grateful for the wonderful inspiration I get when I come here! Thanks Lisa!
My favorites are; my inkblending tools, my roll of twine and I agree with you - what would my cardmaking be without my 6x6 papers (esp. MME!)
Hugs, Karin

Lisa said...

Hi Lisa! What a lovely and generous givaway(s)you are doing! Wow! I'd have to say my most def have-to-have would be pop dots! Close seconds would be Stickles, MME papers, and Distress Inks.
You are so much fun and inspiring! It's a pleasure coming to see what you create :)

Mara Campbell said...

Wow, what a generous giveaway!!! So sweet of you! My favs for cards are kraft cardstock, baker's twine and bling. You can never have enough baker's twine and bling!!

missy said...

How sweet of you to offer up this great blog candy. I was checking out your cards and they are amazing! My three fav's are my grand calibur, my dies, and my PTI cardstock.

Cyndie said...

Hey, Lisa, what a totally awesome idea, and how sweet of you! Let's see, my go-to items...hmmmm...well I think it would have to be my Genesis trimmer, my Cuttlebug and all the dies and embossing folders I use with it (see, I'm cheating here by counting them all as one item), and my collection of Stampin Up inks and card stocks (I have all the original colors, which makes it so easy to make coordinating parts of the card in any color scheme--and I guess this item is a cheat as well--what can I say, I like lots of stuff!)!

Marybeth said...

Hi Lisa, Im back this morning my ipad did not let me type. You give us a lot of inspiration . I am alway happy when I see that you have left a comment and I love seeing what card you have to share.

Kelly Griglione said...

Wow, that is so nice of you to host such a great give-away! Very nice. My top three ... 1) dies (have no patience for detailed cutting), 2) embossing folders/impression plates (gotta have texture), and 3) vintage anything (trims, fabric, flashcards, books, piano rolls, etc. - I just have to stop hoarding them and USE them more!)

Marlena M. said...

My favorites: dies,STAMPS, and now, DP! I know you know how to rock DP!

Such awesome giveaways! This is my first visit (thank you for leaving me a comment on my new blog!) & I must say--first thing I noticed is that we have Schnauzers in common--LOL--although mine are a bit larger--still makes us connected I think!
Your paper crafting is beautiful--I'll visit again!

Michelle said...

Wow... a really lovely and generous giveaway! You can never, ever go wrong with polka dots (or Martha, for that matter!). My must haves: cream/white CS, background stamps and a MS glue pen (love my 6x6 pads too but can never seem to cut into them! ). Thanks too for always leaving such nice words of encouragement on my blog!

Only 3 must haves? Oooo, that's hard. I guess my favs are patterned papers, Distress Ink, and Stickles. It's fun to see what everyone else considers to be their must-haves! Thanks for the generous giveaways!
