Today is my 1000th Post :)

Today I am going to share with you another card from my girls creative get away.
Not only that, but this card is going to someone special.....I will share who at the end of this post ;)
The paper that I used was Echo Parks "This & That Graceful", yup I had to run downstairs to check out the name ;)

The image is a Pure Innocence stamp. Isn't she so sweet.
I, of course coloured her up with my lovely Copics :) 

The inside of my card, left over papers from the front and my recipe/index card.
I also stamped on the recipe card :)

Now onto some Fun stuff:
Today is my 1000th post...yeah for me.
I don't pay attention to numbers...I get enough of numbers with my work.
So when I posted the other day, I didn't realize before that it tells you how many posts you have done.
Well today is my 1000th post :)
I have been blogging for over 2 yrs 8 months.
Here is my first POST if your curious. 

I wanted to say Thank You to my faithful subscribers....who I think of as friends.
If one of you miss commenting on a post, I wonder what you are up to.
If one of you miss a post on your blog, then I hope everything is okay.
So I wanted to do a give away to you. I wish I could give you all a little thank you :(

I decided to do a Secret card kit give away, since that is what I am into right now.
I put together a kit with
6 card bases
6 envelopes
3 sets of paper packs
BoBunny -Enchanted Collection
EP- Dots & Stripes
Authentique- Loyal
various flowers, wood veneer shapes, die cut doilies, tickets
Magnolia stamp 

Now you may wonder, how do you enter this give away......Well... you already have ;)
Like I said I wanted to do this for my faithful followers. So what I did was take the comments that I have received on my last 3 posts, printed them out, cut them out, then got Heather to pick a strip of paper.
And here is who she picked :)
Katie from Katie Stories!!!!!
So Katie, give me your address so I can mail off your Happy Mail :)

I think I will be doing more of these secret give aways, I love to blind side a good way.
Can you tell I am watching Survivor right now, lol.

I hope you all have had a creative Wednesday :)

Tracy :)

I figure I'm forcing good get pregnant energy her way and will have no choice but to work. I can't do much else but I'll try almost anything LOL. Love the card, but do I really have to say anything. I'm going to start having to tell you your cards stink so you don't get a big head LOL. (I would never do that though because I don't lie ;)
