{woot woot!} - celebrating over 200,000 hits!

Hi all!  We made it!  Thanks to each of YOU, dear bloggie friends, my blog has had over 200,000 visits, which is definitely something to celebrate.  How about something crafty to DIE for?!  How does the Framed Tulips Embossing Die sound?

Well, this will be easy peasy for you to play in!
Here are the rules {only enforced by the "Honor System"}:
1. Leave me a comment on this post by midnight Pacific Time, Wed, April 20th.

4. Anyone can play - international visitors welcome!
You can leave me a comment about anything or share the first flower that comes to mind when you think of SPRING!  For me, it's Poppies!!  I am so into those right now.  It could also be because I got my Martha Stewart Living Magazine the other day and there are a bunch of prettty Poppies on the cover!

I'll be announcing the winner on my blog on Friday, April 22nd!  Be sure to come back and visit!  Have a great day :)

Wooow :D another candy :D
I forgot to add my blog on the previous one
Here it is :D

I love anemones, these are flowers that I associate spring with. I saw big fields of them today on my way home. They are realy very beautiful.

Congrats Rose on your hits!!!!!!
I think 20.000 that my entries :)
Loooove your awesome works!
Spring for me it's sun and sea, not flowers. Spring in Israel flowers begin to die from the strong sun. The whole nature of the green turns to yellow .... Instead comes the warm sea, hot sun and lots of ice cream :)
Thanks for the chance to win this awesome prize
Big hugs :)

Congratulations on reaching 200,000 hits Rose!

Thanks also for another blog candy opportunity.

For me the first flower for Spring is the ornamental plum tree blossoms in my back yard. They are soft pink, smell simply gorgeous, attract zillions of bees and sadly, only last for about two, beautiful weeks.

Bring on 300,000 hits!

Janet Swofford said...

Wow! Thanks so much for the chance to win and all of the awesome projects you share on your blog!
The first flower that comes to mind when I think of spring is not just a flower but really a tree, the Redbud. Here in NC they grow wild in the forests(people also plant them in their yards,but I love the wild ones the most) and are the first thing to bloom. So beautiful!
Inky hugs,

jen aiken said...

The first flowers that always came up in our yard were Crocuses, purple and white ones, you rarely see them in the store. They'd pop up despite the snow around them, so cool!

Melanie said...

WOWza! That's a lotta hits, Rose! Congratulations on quite an accomplishment. It doesn't surprise me, though. Your have so many beautiful creations to share here on your blog. It's been a source of inspiration for so many of us.
Here in FL we have flowers pretty much all year round, but I can remember living up North the Tulips and Hyacinth blooms were the first flowers I looked for in my yard with the hope of warm sunny days ahead.

Nicola said...

Wow that's a lot of viewers, congratulations! I love Tulips especially pink ones they remind me of growing up in Germany as a little girl. Once the snow has gone they pretty much pop up everywhere.

Enjoy your beautiful spring season :) Regards Erika :)
