April's Final Friday Giveaway!

Hello blog friends!  How are you all?  Have a good week?  Hope so.  I missed you guys and wish I had more time to craft this past week, too.  Oh well - it's just one of those busy times where there's just not a whole lot of free time for me, so I just need to bite the bullet for a while.  :)  So, how about we talk about some fun crafting stuff for a quick second?  First of all, it's time for April's Final Friday Giveaway!  I know it's taken me forever to post this, but at last, here it is!

This month, you can win this fun Punch Potpourri stamp set!  It's a current level 1 Hostess Set and it coordinates with 4 of Stampin'Up's cool punches (sorry folks, punches are not included!) 
Here are the rules {only enforced by the "Honor System"}:

1. Leave me a comment on this post by midnight Pacific Time, Wed, April 27, 2011.
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!

You can leave me a comment about anything, or you can answer this question - where is the furthest destination you've travelled in the world?  For me, I'd say that so far to date, the furthest I've travelled has been to and from the Philippines.  The first time was when I emigrated to the United States as a child, and then I've gone a couple times after that to visit.  The airline I took coming to America that very first time was Pan Am.  Some of you may not have even heard of that, I bet!  I remember getting a coloring book with Pandas in it and a small box of crayons.  That was a long time ago! What a blast from the past.  Now it's your turn - would love to hear about your furthest travels!

But wait - there's more!  This week also marks my 200,000 blog hits!!  WooHoo!!  I have you guys to thank for getting to this big milestone.  I know I should have had more fanfare on the bloggie blog, but I didn't get a chance to post when it happened mid week!  So, I'm offering another giveaway in my next sue to check first thing tomorrow.  Feel free to leave a comment on that post for a chance to'll have to read the post to see what I'm giving away!

Have a great night and look forward to hearing about your travels!!  I'll be announcing the winner on my blog on Friday, April 29th!

This is a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
And for the longest trip for me it's not so far: Holland-Barcelona, but that was because my sister staid there for a year. First time in a plain for me, but I don't feel the urge to do that again. Give me some time to use my craft supplies and I am the happiest person in the world! No vacation for me. Weird. But happy! ;)

Hugs from Holland

Hi Rose...I'm getting excited as I only have 34 more working days left until I can retire from my job and spend much more time stamping!!! The furthest I've been away from home is probably on a cruise ship 32 years ago to the Carribean. It was wonderful -- nothing like a cruise vacation.

Wilma said...

I'm glad we're hearing from you again! The furthest destination was Maroc and Croatia! I'm living in the Netherlands and there is so much to see here, that I haven't even seen! We mostly plan our trips in the Netherlands.

Thank you for this delicious candy!

Janet Swofford said...

Hi Rose! Thanks for the chance to win the wonderful candy!
I have traveled quite a bit in the US but I've only been to Canada outside of the States. But California is a long way from NC especially in a car:-)I've always wanted to travel to far away places but I've never had the opportunity. Maybe after we get our children through college:-)
Inky hugs,

Christine Ray said...

Great question! Sounds like folks have been to some pretty exotic places! Home is Colorado but I was blessed to go to South Africa in 2005 & hope I can go back someday. I've been lusting after the Punch Potporri set since I first saw it in the catalog! Thank you for the chance to be part of your Friday Give Away - hope I win! Blessings,
