March News and Last Chance for a Special Birthday Kit

I can’t believe it’s already March or as I call it, The Birthday Month!  So many of my friends and family members (as well as myself) have birthdays in March!  It’s a month of celebrations! For me, it’s a milestone one! I’m just getting back from a wonderful weekend away at Nemacolin with my husband. He surprised me with an early celebration and I am ready to embrace a new decade and give thanks for all the blessings in my life!  Let’s celebrate with some blog candy!

Leave me a comment about how you like to celebrate your birthday and I will pick a random winner to receive a special birthday stamp set. (I will announce the winner on Thursday, March 15th so be sure to check back.)

Paper Pumpkin is also celebrating a birthday this month! Paper Pumpkin is turning six! (Just add a zero and you’ll know what birthday I’m celebrating this month!)

Question #1 seemed to stump many; however, the winner got them all correct! The winner is Nancy Huhn!   Congratulations Nancy! Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I will send you the Shimmer Ribbon Pack from Sale-A-Bration!

Yesterday I shared some Tutti-Frutti pens.  I loved reading the comments and what you like to do with your friends and family. The random winner to receive one of the Tutti-Frutti pens is Karen H.   Here’s what she had to say:

Auuugh! Your post makes me so jealous that I won’t be joining all of you Stampin’ sisters in April! You are going to have so much fun! I adore these little pen holders – what a great idea. Just like the comment above me, I too have a long-time friend coming to visit the end of May. We’ll be up late with a glass of wine and our old high school photo albums, laughing and catching up after 40+ years!

Congratulations Karen! I will be sending one of the Tutti-Frutti pens your way.

Many thanks to all who commented and stop by to visit each day. I am thankful to have you in my stamping circle!

Have a wonderful day!

Q is for Questions and Quick Tips

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. The catalog and brochures offer ideas, quick tips, and techniques! Today I decided to have a little fun and send you on a scavenger hunt through the catalog and brochures to find answers to some questions. (*I will post a link to the Sale-A-Bration brochures below. You can access the catalog from the menu bar on my blog.  If you are reading this in your email, click on the title to go to my blog.)

I always loved scavenger hunts and remember fun times racing around the neighborhood with brown paper bags seeing who could be first to find the items on the list. Well, you don’t need to run around! You can grab a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) and enjoy browsing the catalog.  Look for answers to the questions below, copy and paste the questions with your answers, and email them to me (j.stark@myactv.net).  I will pick a random winner to receive a Sale-A-Bration surprise!

Let’s see how well you do with these 10 questions…
