A Summer Giveaway!

Hello, everyone! 
Every day I feel so blessed to share my work with you in my blog. 

~For those who comment on almost all of my posts, I thank you SO much! You have no idea how much I appreciate you. When your familiar names come up in the comments, you just give me a big smile on my big moon face.
~For those who do check my posts and make comments once in a while, I am so glad that you do care to check me out even when you are super busy.
~For those who subscribe to my blog and prefer to be a "silent" reader/blog follower, I appreciate you! You are my unsung heroes! I wish I know who you are, but then, that takes away the mystery, right? As long as you still follow me, we are good!
~For those who get a chuckle at "What is Dr. John Thinking" posts, thank you for seeing the bright side of  Dr. John. He is my biggest supporter and enabler....and admirer. It means so much that you adore his wisecracking jokes about my obsession. 
~For those who love my traveling posts and food photos, you are practically my family! Because we have a common love! :)

For all of the above reasons, I am doing a summer giveaway. 
There will be two random winners. 

The first winner will be getting this card...
Just for you--
  and all these goodies!

 And the 2nd winner will receive one month FREE StampNation Membership

It is strongly encouraged that you become my blog follower for the giveaway (it's optional). One entry per person please. All you need to do is enter your blog/link and name with InLinkz (see bottom of the post), that's it! The deadline for this giveaway is July 12, 2014 Midnight Eastern Time.
Good luck!

Also a reminder for you to check out StampNation if you have not already. I recently joined the design team there and I look forward to the weekly challenges and inspiration. In mid July, I will host a few stamp forums/features! It's going to be FUN! Thanks for stopping by!

Can you say "GORGEOUS"? Well, I can! I really love the bold colors you chose for those beautiful flowers, and how you stamped those pretty green swirls behind them...Stunning card, Virginia!

I just realized that by adding my name to the 'Linky' it puts me in the draw, but I would love for you to please choose someone else if my name pops up...I have been so blessed to win so many things lately...on top of my spending, and would love to see your generous prize go to someone who needs it.

Thank 'You', Viginia...for ALL of your wonderful posts! I wouldn't miss them for anything!!!

Virginia, Lovely possible gift....more importantly, I loved your comments. You have inspired me so much. I think that's the nicest thing about your blog. It's through your generosity that I've been able to "travel" to places my feet will never touch, meet and appreciate your family especially Dr. John.
