Birds on a Wire and a Give Away!

As I have been purging so much unloved stuff from my craft room (and it's very difficult to see any difference unless you know what was where before) I came across 2 great stamp sets that are brand new and never opened.  I'd love to bless someone with these so will be giving them away to some lucky comment giver.  I will do the drawing on July 9th.  To get your name in the drawing, and I'm relying on honesty, you get a chance for leaving a comment, becoming a follower (you must not already be one and you must tell me in your comment that you started following my blog), and sharing this post (you must tell me where you shared this post).  These are the 2 stamp sets I'll be giving away.  You don't have to become a follower or share for a chance to win.  These are just ways you get your name in the "bucket" for more chances to win.

I still have my own set of the A|Muse Studio set on the left.  It is still loved but this set was purchased for a special purpose a couple years ago and I still have it.  The set on the right by My Mind's Eye came from when I was with Memory Works which closed a year or so ago.  So, follow the directions listed above and you might be a winner.

This card below was made using the new "Above the Clouds" embossing folder by FSJ and the set "Sweet Home" (in the Inspiration category).

After embossing the Whip Cream card stock I added some Pool Play ink with a sponge.  Then I stamped the birds (and I did cut the stamp into 2) with Black Licorice ink and layered it on Pool Play card stock.

Here's a closer view of the birds on the wire.  I added the "wire" by using Black Twine.  There was a card made at convention similar that I just loved so I just had to make my own.

Now don't forget about the drawing.  You have up to 3 chances to win!  I will need a way to contact you so if you don't have a google account  I need your email addy.  If you leave your email  with your comment please add some spaces to it so it won't make a direct link.  And please check back here as I'll list the winner in my Friday, July 10th post.   If I'm unable to contact the winner or the winner doesn't contact me in a timely fashion (by Friday, July 17) I will draw again for a new winner.  Have fun!

Beautiful card Carol! Sweet of you to give away some of your treasures, I'm not eligible since I've been following you since our Angel Co. days, wishing you well with FSJ! Donna

Nice of you to offer these goodies up for gifting, I don't believe I am eligible either as I have been following you since forever. Although I do love that word stamp set.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda

I love the bird on a wire card. It would be fun to make a fall card with those birds. I'm always up for a chance to win stamps! Thanks for sharing your creations.
Love, Gail from Michigan.

What a nice idea to give away some of your excess goodies. I've been purging a lot lately too. Your idea to do giveaways on your blog is an excellent one. I will join your giveaway and become a follower. I am an A Muse consultant though and probably have that set (it is now retired) so if I do win feel free to have a 2nd runner up with that one.
