WooHoo! It's Freebie Friday 10 and I just passed my 20,000 hits milestone!

Happy Friday! Not only is it my 10th Freebie Friday, but I've also just passed my 20,000 blog hits too. WooHoo! There's a lot for me to be excited about! For today's giveaway, I created a project using Sandy Hancock's basket idea from my earlier post this week. I hope you like it. I made 4 Thank You cards to go with it as well, as a special thank you to YOU! These are the 3 1/2" x 5" cards, and the basket could probably fit in 8-12 cards pretty easily. Here are the pictures:

I used the Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration catalog, and if you're curious about the stamp I used and the cute scallop oval punch, these are 2 new items in the Ocassions Mini Catalog that's coming up! (I think you all will love the new products and stamp sets when you see it.) I also used the large polka dot Texturz plates on the white background to give it that extra special something on the card :) Hope you like it!

Now to participate in today's giveaway, all you have to do is leave me a comment with your email address or blog url on this post by midnight Pacific time today - Friday, March 13th. You can comment on anything or answer today's question: What is your favorite thing about Spring? I have two things - the first is the pretty smell of flowers in the air! This past week, when I've gone out to pick up the newspaper in the morning, I've noticed how fragrant the flowers have made the air smell. It sort of sets my mood for the day and gets me in a happy place. The second favorite thing about spring is getting to where open toe shoes again, which means that I get to uncover my toes and get pampered with pedicures!

Congratulations on your success, and what a beautiful set!
My favorite thing about spring is the flowering trees. We have two gorgeous dogwood trees in our front yard, as well as a flowering cherry tree, and they are breathtaking when they are all in bloom. Have a great weekend!

Congratulations! Oh, so many wonderful things about Spring... but perhaps my favorite is that it is still daylight when I pick up my son after work and he can go in the backyard for a bit and play while I fix dinner and watch thim through the kitchen door. Staying inside for him has got to be among the worst things in life.

Hi Rose,congrats on passing 20,000 hits, what an accomplishment! I was supposed to go the Sandy's SF Meeting last Friday but I had a last minute family function to go to. Looks like I missed out on a lot. :o(
Let's see, my favorite thing about Spring has to be the flowers, I love seeing the new flowers opening and the smell of the flowers!

Hi Rose-

Congrats on your 20,000+ blog hits. No surprise there. Your blog is one of my favorites:)

My favorite thing about spring is thunderstorms. There is just something exciting about them and if it rains long enough, it brings the pollen count down. I wish I could say I love the flowers. They are beautiful, but I'm so badly allergic to them:(

What an adorable giveaway! Those cards are so cute.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
