One World One Heart 2011

I'm SO excited I'm able to participate in this year's One World One Heart event! (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you can read all about it here.) This is my second year participating, and I'm looking forward to meeting a bunch of new bloggers and reconnecting with familiar ones. 
If you are new to my blog, WELCOME! I hope you'll take a look around and come back to visit me again! Here's a little bit about me: I have been a paper crafter for about 6 years & a blogger for 2 years. I mostly make greeting cards, but I also enjoy making the occasional gift or special gift packaging. I have a very clean & simple style, & I believe one can never have enough ribbon or bling.

As part of this event, I'm offering up some goodies. My giveaway is open to EVERYONE worldwide (whether you are an actual participant or not) with an active blog only.
My giveaway includes 12 handcrafted note cards with a variety of sentiments, including birthday, love/friendship, thank you, and thinking of you. I love cardmaking, and I made these especially for my winner! I think you'll love them, too!

To be entered in this giveaway, leave me a comment ON THIS POST. You MUST leave a way for me to contact you, either by linking to your blog or leaving an email address. This giveaway will end at midnight CST on February 17. I will randomly choose a winner on February 18.

Good luck! I'm looking forward to meeting all you awesome bloggers out there!
