Blogaversary Winners!

Hello Everybody!

It's time to announce the winners for the Blogaversary challenges!  Thank you everybody who participated.  The turn out was awesome! :)  For everybody that stopped by-thank you!  I am glad that you stopped by to help celebrate my first year here in Blogland!  I hope for just a great 2nd year!

So without further ado...here are the winners of my 3 challenges:

1.  4th of July Inspiration:
Your entries rocked!  With so many styles and different cards, it was a very tough decision.  I had to enlist the help of my husband :) So the drum roll please...

The 1st place winner is Tammy from Creating Somewhere Under the Sun!  I used a doily in one of my cards-thank you for the inspiration!  I also like the many different layers you used with the scalloped borders and ribbon.  Your focal point was great!



However, the race was really close!  So I chose a 2nd place winner-Mynnette from On A Stampage!  I love  the pins!  And the splatter was really cool so I used some splatter on one of my cards too!




2.  Your Tidbit for Tidbit Tuesday

The winner is Mynnette!  She said...

Here is my tidbit--NEVER GIVE UP!!! I was sitting around talking to my DH about my crafting and I was telling him how I had been feeling sorry for myself a lot lately as to "winning" and he reminded me that "winning" isn't everything. The journey is! I looked back to see how many times I had won, realized he was correct and was pleasantly surprised to see that I had won 3 more times in my absence of blogging! NEVER GIVE UP. I am NOT the best crafter, but I do get a little better each day because I will NEVER GIVE UP!!! Also, I remember when I first started blogging how frustrated I got because I felt like no one was commenting/noticing MY blog. You know what?! I needed to do better at visiting others! It was hard at first, but I NEVER GAVE UP! It's worked and I feel so blessed to have met such amazing crafters in my journey! {{{HUGS}}} to you and yours, Katy! :)


These are awesome words of encouragement!  Thank you so much for taking time to comment and writing one of the best Tidbits ever! :)  


3.  Die Cut Challenge


The winner is Mynnette from On a Stampage!  Thank you for submitting not 1-not 2 not 3 but 6 entries!  All 6 cards are beautiful but my absolute favorite is this one.  I love the embossed butterflies, the colors, bling, and the sentiment.  And it has pins!  I need to get some pins!  ;)




Winners please email me at cooldrogos@gmail.com for prize information.

Again a huge THANK YOU for everyone who participated in my challenges!  Hugs to everyone who stops by my spot here in this big Blogosphere.

Until next time my friends..."Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." --Dr. Seuss

KATY: I forgot to tell you about pins--those pins in the butterfly card are boutonniere pins-- 99 cents for a package of about 12-15 of them! Seriously. Check out craft stores and go to the wedding section. They have AMAZING deals on stuff you can use for paper crafting! :)
