Contest! Free Paper Stuff!

Pity party is over!! Time for another contest, and in keeping with the fact that I love paper (hence, "Paperlicious"), this contest is for some free paper. Here's a sneak peek at just some of what the lucky winner will get. "Tickets and Tokens" tag sheets from Stampin UP! and a set of Tag sheets from SU in bold brights. I will also include a variety of other 12 x 12 papers, some SU, some not.
How can you win? It's simple. Just post a comment on this posting between today Saturday October 21st and Sunday October 22nd at 6 pm EST. Then I'll take the comments, print them out, put them in a box and have my son pick a winner!
Why am I doing this? I've been trying for a while to figure out how many folks actually read this blog and my "stampers top 50" label turned out to be a non working link. Thanks to Karen for letting me know. No wonder my "ranking" was dropping every day! LOL
I thought this would be fun way to see who is really "out there." I'll post the name of the winner on Sunday night and provide a method to contact me to give me your name and address. There are no strings attached. I'm not selling anything, including your contact information.
In the meantime, thank you for your lovely comments to my last post. I really was having a pity party. This morning the sun is shining, it is a glorious day, I've stocked up on groceries (a day with ice cream can't be all bad!!), and I'm looking forward to my mom coming home later today.
Now, go comment!

  6. Joan,

    I understand how hard it can be with your Mother. My 94 year old Mom lived with us for 33 years until we had to put her in a nursing home in June - broke both of our hearts. Now she is scheduled for a hip replacement surgery on the 30th. I will keep you in my prayers. By the way, I love your attitude toward your great husband - don't see too much of that anymore. And I love your cards.

Geesh...I am as old as dirt! Anywho thanks for your blog Joan and for this neat give away!
