Please contact me to claim your prize.

This month  your sponsor is actually .. yours truly  🙂  I wanted to do something a bit different this month. The Instructions to the DT team were… any Digital Stamp Image… with a Gina Marie Designs Die… which was a pretty safe bet that we could all do this one. Since I found Gina Marie Designs and got the ladies hooked.. we’ve all got a bunch to play with LOL.   And who doesn’t have stamps from all these guys and gals??

Prize:

…so the Prize on offer this month is: One Random Winner gets to choose between the following prizes …choice of

$10 Scrapbook Outlet Code  ( Gina Marie Designs )

$10 ImageAbility.Inc code ( choose between CraftingAbility.com or Cohas.com )

….or your choice of a $10 code/ gift cert to one of our awesome sponsors stamp shoppe:

Rick St Dennis
Cute As A Button
Bloobel Stamps
Sasayaki Glitter
Power Poppy
Bugaboo Stamps
KennyKstamps

If the winning project features a digital image from one of the sponsors listed above,  OR a Gina Marie Designs Die, or ImageAbility product..I’ll bump it up to a $15 prize.  So be sure to include that info and links to them on your blog posts so I can see what you used for the bonus 🙂

So here we have the DT Projects,  gorgeous projects as always ladies.

And the Spotlight Series Giveaway winners are…….

winnersOk… here is the list you have all been waiting for…. first off congrats to all of the winners…. and commiserations to those of you that didn’t win THIS TIME.

There are still more chances to win ..I still have a 5 pack of Chameleon Pens and a Set of Ocean themed Gina Marie dies up for grabs…. so be sure to enter those if you haven’t already done so.  If you aren’t already subscribed to the blog, or a follower on Facebook… you may miss out on future giveaways.

Oh and you missed out on THIS too….  I decided to have a random Subscriber pull for the heck of it..sooo… just for fun and to say thank you I wanted to pull a subscriber and invite them to  show off their crafting skills….AND …. answer the Spotlight Questions we just saw all of the guests complete.  I had to laugh when I saw who Random.org pulled for this one…I love this lady, both as a crafter and a person-ality…and boy does she have personality.   I can’t think of anyone who is more perfectly suited to this that YOU….. Shannon Abblitt.  

Now the question is …. Will you do it? will you be our first Crafter Spotlight Guest?  I will email you later today when I send out all the winner emails for the giveaways…I hope you say yes  🙂

Anywho.. bring on the winners !!!!!

Winners were picked using the Random.org widget

Emails will go out later today ( about 12 hours from now ) and you have 48 hours from when I send them to respond and claim your prize and then your claim will be forwarded to the sponsor for prize delivery…. so consider this a head start because I got through picking/verifying winners faster than I anticipated.

A Huge Thank you to all of the spotlight guests who took part in this fun series and to any future Spotlight Guests who want to join in and keep the series going….  bust me a message on Facebook  🙂

End of Series Giveaway Main Page

Well here we are… finally the end of Series Giveaway is about to kick off.

CLOSED 

spotlight series

Now  you are going to wish you had commented on the spotlights when you read them..I dropped enough hints to sink a battle ship, not that I should have needed to *cough.

Anywho….  There are a lot of different prizes on offer, some US only, but most are worldwide.. please be sure to read the eligibility on each one you wish to enter.

I would like to thank the spotlight guests  and sponsors for  such a fab series.  It all started off with a crazy idea in the wee hours one morning and snowballed from a maybe once a week or month thing to..all of a sudden daily. It’s been a lot of work and a lot of fun.. and for sure has been an eye opener for me.  Trust me  when you have a month of 5am bedtimes.. an eye opener isn’t always bad thing lol.  AND .. we have more guests who want to play along..so look forward to more spotlights in the coming weeks and months 🙂

Thank you everyone ..and GOOD LUCK !!!

End of Series Giveaways – Updates

Well… we are, over half way through the Spotlight Series.. so time to start pulling together all of the giveaway prizes on offer.  I will start listing them all here …. this list may change over the next two weeks…so expect edits on this post 🙂  This is just a fun giveaway and an opportunity for  the spotlight guests  and of course myself to thank you, the visitors, crafters, fans and group members for your interest and support of this Spotlight Series.spotlight_giveaway-sneaky

Each one will have its own giveaway page which will be opened for comments on the 1st  of July.

Once it is open for comments… you will need to enter each one you are interested in, individually.   All you have to do is comment on the giveaway post “I commented” AND have commented on the sponsors spotlight post.  So if you haven’t been leaving comments on the daily guest spotlights .. now is the time to play catch up LOL.  Not all spotlight guests are able to offer prizes;  so their spotlight may be sponsored by an external sponsor, but you will still need to comment on the spotlight to enter.

If it’s a non spotlight sponsor,  the giveaway post will have details on what you need to do to enter those.

Winners will be picked randomly and will be posted  here on the blog on/around the 15th of July.

Some are open to the US only, some are worldwide and will be duly noted on each giveaway.. please verify you are eligible to enter.

I reserve the rights to modify this list as needed before the official start date of the giveaways.

Prize list so far
