It's About Time I Did a Raffle!

It's a well known fact 'round these parts that I like to make cards. My mother-in-law got me into it when she first started scrapbooking and took some card classes. She was oh so wonderful enough to bring the tools and paper to do the cards she made each month so that I could copy the ones from her class. And so my love of card making began.

The thing I love about cards is that they are done quickly and you don't have to figure out so much stuff. I mean, a card is such a small space compared to a 12x12 piece of paper! It's something I can do in an evening and I don't have to have pictures on hand (printed of course...I always have PLENTY of photos on the hard drive).

My mother-in-law has also been so sweet as to surprise me with little goodies here and there (actually much more than she should have sometimes), so I have been able to try a variety of things and really figure out my favorites. And guess what?!? She donated one of my FAVORITE stamp sets for a raffle! I am so excited. I use this stamp set all the time. I think my most favorite is the little lady bug, but I do love them all. is what you can win with this raffle:

The Stampin' Up! stamp set- Garden Whimsy shown below (retails for $32.95)

...AND a birtday pack of 5 handmade cards, designed by me. I had some help putting some of them together =). Each card is 4 inches square.

Yes, I did think of Lu when making the one below. How could I not do a Poppy when raising money for Ana when she is the reason that I even found Reece's Rainbow?

Now, how do you win these items? You can click on the side bar on the "chip in" button. For every $5 that you donate, you will be entered in a drawing to win them. Please pass the word on so that we can raise as much as possible, of course =). Please leave a note in the chip in with your e-mail so that I can contact you if you win.

If you don't win the stamp set and cards, but would like some of the cards shown here I have 14 more sets available to buy. They are $6.25 for each set, plus shipping. If you live nearby I will just give them to you to skip that step.

Every last cent goes toward Anastasia's adoption process. (I'm sure that comes as no surprise to you though...)

Thank you for all of your support as always friends, and thanks for spreading the word!
