finally...June's Final Friday {Giveaway}!

Hi there blog peeps!  Are you enjoying your weekend?  I certainly am!  I'm finally catching my breath a little.  Not only that, but I am finally posting my Final Friday Giveaway!  This month's final Friday happens to land on my birthday, so I decided to make this giveaway an extra special birthday freebie extravaganza!  It's my current favorite Alphabet stamp set!  Here's a look for you:

What do you think?  Pretty cool?  This set is called Jayne's Type Alphabet and has a retail value of $43.95 (US).  It's currently available in the SU! catty.  Lucky for you, you can win it for FREE!  I really love this set and want to use it more often, that's for sure! The letters are just gorgeous.  I'll make a few cards to share with you in the coming weeks.  Of course, I have the grand plan of making a bunch of mongram cards for friends and family...I just haven't gotten a chance to do them yet.  Baby steps...I'll start with a few 3x3s {heehee}.  Now, if you win, you can go nuts and make monogram cards, or create whatever your heart desires!  I'm sure you'll enjoy many uses of this set.  So let's talk about what you need to do to play, shall we? 
Here are the rules {only enforced by the "Honor System"}:

1. Leave me a comment on this post by midnight Pacific Time, Wed, June 23, 2010.
2. On your comment, please make sure to include a valid email address or a blog URL (where I can leave a comment or have a way of contacting you). For those of you that are uncomfortable with leaving an email in a post, you can write your info like this: yourname at emailaccount dot com.
3. One comment per person please. :)
4. Anyone can play - international visitors welcome!
The winner will be chosen at random (via and announced on my blog on Friday, June 25th!  Are you ready to play?  You can leave me a comment about anything, or tell me about your favorite birthday - it can be about the age, the celebration, or specific memory.  I can't wait to here about it!  I love reading your comments and appreciate you taking the time to leave one.

On a side note - for my April and May winners....I was a little tardy in getting the goodies off to you guys.  Suffice it to say, they are in the US Postal Service's hands now, en route to your respective locations. :)  For my April winner, I was a little challenged figuring out the international post requirements, but now I'm good to go.  I've learned a lot about customs forms!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.  In the meantime, good luck playing for this month's giveaway!

Bye for now!

Happy birthday! Thanks for this chance!!My favourite birthday was my 20th... my boyfriend and I went to the sea - to the Cinque Terre in Liguria (Italy) - to make a pic nic! I was born the 1st of May, so that was the first sea-day of the year!

Hi Rose! Happy Birthday to you! I wish you another year of happiness and good health! My favorite b-day was when I turned 16. My Mom had planned a surprise party for me but I knew all about it! I never let her know that I found out about it though, it would have broke her heart! Thanks for the chance to win! Karen in WI

Happy Birthday!

I've never really had a specific one birthday that seems to stand out... I think birthdays are just strange for me. I prefer to celebrate life every day, I suppose.

Rose- Happy Early Birthday! Make sure your celebration last at least a week. I always drag mine out as long as possible :) Yesterday I was babysitting and pulled out my stamping stuff for the girls. We had a blast. It has been over a year since I have made anything, now I have the itch. Look forward to the new catalog.

Alie de Vrij-Venema said...

Wishing you a great great birthday!! I never mind celebrating my birthday (at any age..). Hoping to become 31 at the beginning of August :)

These stamps would be great for an invitation card..
Thanks for the chance!

Love Alie

Happy Birthday Rose. I really love the wedding invitations you created. So tasteful and eye catching. Great job! I am sure the bride is very happy with them.
My favourite birthday that stands out has to be my 30th ... since next year will be my 40th... I better learn to embrace that one!
Hope you have a fabulous day!
Sorry I had to delete my previous comment because I forgot to leave my email. I hope that doesn't mess up the number system or count as cheating?
Thanks Rose... and you can disqualify me if it does!

I don't really have a single favorite Bithday, but I would have to say that I've really enjoyed the last few because my kids are old enough now to where they get SO excited for a Birthday celebration!

Happy Birthday Rose!!!! Thanks for giving us the chance to win some really cool blog candy. My favorite birthday was my husbands 50th. I was able to put together a really big surprise party for him. He had no idea what was waiting for him at his moms house besides some yard work. The look on his face was priceless!! There were lots of happy tears on that day.

Hi Rose!! Happy early Birthday!!!! I always enjoy reading your posts and getting inspiration. This is my favourite funny birthday memory. Right before opening my present from my friends, I told them that my parents got me tickets to go see Cinderella the musical... so when I opened their present, guess what I got... tickets to see Cinderella the musical lol. They were on different days so my parents went to see the show on their own and I went with my friends.

Thanks for always doing these amazing giveaways and I hope your birthday is filled with lots of cake, ice cream, and happiness =) Keep up the great work!

Happy Birthday!

I really like this stamp set and was thinking of ordering it, but now I'll see if I win and if I don't then I will order it.

Hmmm, I guess my birthday that stands out is a recent one in which my husband took me to Williamsburg Winery. My birthday is in Feb and it was cold and raining, but I still had the best time. The wine was good and the food was great. So that is it, just a birthday with my husband.

Here is my blog:
