Wonderful Weekly Giveaway -- Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Today's Wonderful Weekly Giveaway is this sweet set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. This set, Hugs for Janessa, was created by Korin Sutherland in honor of her niece Janessa who is a special little girl. She was born with Down Syndrome and at 18 months was diagnosed with leukemia. You can find out more about Janessa HERE.

The card I made from this sweet set uses a painted mesh background (December 2008 Technique Junkie Newsletter). To add more visual interest, I ran the painted mesh through the Cuttlebug and highlighted it with purple ink. The bear was colored using the Marker Watercolor Technique (June 2008 issue).

The card and stamps will be sent to one lucky winner, but don't fret! Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has 20% off of everything right now! Hurry over to the site to save!

Again, I have a personal note at the end of the entry paragraph, in case you were following my tale of woe last week...

To enter the give away for today, simply leave a comment on this blog entry telling me that you would like to enter by 11:59pm EST on Sunday, January 18th. No other entry methods will be included in the give away. If you email me to enter, your entry will NOT be considered a valid entry. When you leave the comment, make sure to put your NAME in the comment -- if you enter your comment as "Anonymous", I cannot give you the prize! Blogger does NOT record your email address for me, so you will need to check back to find out if you have won or include your email address in your comment so that I can notify you. A good way to do this is like so: phuntoon at optonline dot net -- it will help protect your privacy! I will have a random number generator pick one number from the comments to select one winner. Each give-away is separate, so to be eligible for a specific item you must enter that day's contest on the post where it is listed. Enter today -- good luck!

By the way: My emails are back up and working. It is VERY possible that I did not receive emails from some people for at least two months. If you have emailed me and I have not responded, please email again -- I am not avoiding you, I just didn't get your first email!

For those of you who asked and/or expressed concern: My son is okay -- he was a bit dazed, but no permanent damage : )

Congratulations to Holly Fotty, the winner of this giveaway!
