Contest!!

One of the fun things about blog reading and participating in challenge entries is prizes!!   I thought I'd have a little contest on my blog this week!!  This contest will last one week closing midnight Friday 4/25/14  , Next Saturday I will post the winner! On Monday I will mail the package, it is all ready to go!!  The contest is very simple.


1)  Guess how many cards I have made from this set of 6x6 (48 sheets) of paper - closest wins the prize!  I will have a random draw in the event of a tie.
2) Join my blog or already be a follower!  The  followers gadget is on the right hand sidebar - it is easy!!
3) leave a comment with your guess!

This is the pad:


This is the Prize:



That is it Easy Peasy!

Last year I chopped most of my 12x12 pads in to 6x6 pads, this made card making so much easier and fun!!  With this contest I will be using one pad and the winner will receive one of the other ones! The pack also includes Strathmore deckle edge 100# paper, envelopes, 8.5x11 card stocks in shade of red and brown ( these are all 80#+90# papers) and a stamp set which is not in the picture.

A hint about how many cards I will make.  I don't do the type of cards where you take a 6x6 pad and make 5 cards from each sheet.  I actually have no idea how many I will make, I pulled this pad and thought it would be fun to see how many I could make and even more fun to have a contest.!  Will post a widget or something like that during the week with a link back to this contest so that more readers can join it.  I will post pictures of the finished cards on Saturday when I announce the winner.

What a fun thing to do and really it all depends on how much time you have and how the creativity flows. So I am giving it a go and my favourite number has been taken so I will do it backwards 63 is my number. Happy crafting.

That's such a cool idea to cut down your 12x12's!!!

I say 35 cards and I am a new follower!

Karen Ives said...

I say 80. Karen (Frayed round the Edges)

Well, Ginny. I think it all depends on whether you make cards like me - or simply lay a sheet onto the card itself - in which case the answer would be 48. But, if it were me - I would be cutting, adding other bits, using up the pieces I cut off on another card....So, you see I would get three cards out of each sheet - but that would be 144 cards in a week! How many hours in a day??? My guess though is 144 - I'll go with my method of making them. I'm not a follower - simply 'cos I don't know how to be, or what it means - sorry - but I had fun guessing!!!
