I have a few things to share today. First off, I want to thank you all for voting for my card in the first ever Amber Ink Holiday Blog hop. My card came in 3rd and I won a prize! Yay :) You can check out this post to see what all three of the girls won and check out the prize winning cards. They are fantabulous!
The next exciting thing I have to share is, being one of the three winners, I get to award a prize to you, a random commenter on my blog from the Tuesday hop!
The winner of a $10.00 gift certificate to the Amber Ink store is...
(If anyone knows how to get the random number thingy to copy and paste let me know. I have yet to figure that out.)
Woo hoo...Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your email and I will make sure to get your info to the powers that be, so that you get your prize!
Now, on to number 3 on the blogging list...
Here is my little piece of encouragement to get you to enter the Amber Inkredible 21 Day Challenge this month.
The challenge is to make a wrap, bag, box...whatever! Good one for this time of year when you are wrapping and bagging anyway, right?
There is an awesome prize for the winner. Trust me, I won last month. If I can, anyone can. But, you can't win if you don't enter ;)
I used a piece of iPaper called Spin Pin to decorate my little pencil box. I chose to make it to fit four pencils, because those were the ones that matched the paper...
I also decided to make a cover for my little day planner that I use to jot down quick notes and ideas. I know most people are keeping a digital calender of some sort now days, but I always like a paper back up too.
Here is the boring, generic before...
And the bright, happy after...
I love the colors on these little items, so I'm making duplicates as part of a stocking stuffer gift...Those little planners are only a buck at the dollar store!
Play along at the Amber Inkredible 21 Day Challenge!
Finally my last bit today is, stop by the Amber Ink Blog and play along with Aloha Friday for fun!
Have a great day...
