Seasons Givings Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Edited to add winners…scroll to bottom of post.
So thrilled to be part of Latisha’s Seasons Givings Blog Hop for the 7th year!  A big SHOUT OUT to Latisha for managing this event every year!  I appreciate your time + patience!  You should have arrived from Mary-Ann Coulter Maldonado’s Blog!  I’m sure that Mary-Ann has some awesome eye candy for you!!!

If you didn’t pop over here from Mary-Ann’s, you’ll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Lawn Fawn blog!  In case you get lost along the way, the entire hop listing is at the end of my post.

This is a thank YOU for my readers, for stopping by and saying hello!  Thank YOU for inspiring me.

First up, I thought I’d do a run down of my favorite projects I posted for 2018:

January  |  Hero Arts

February  |   Taylored Expressions

March  |   Pebbles, Inc

April  |   Reverse Confetti
May  |  Ellen Hutson LLC

June  |   Power Poppy

July  |  WOW!  Embossing + Pretty Pink Posh

August  |  Hello Bluebird

September  |  Lawn Fawn
October  |  Paper Smooches
November  |  My Favorite Things
December  |  Mama Elephant

Here they are all together:
2018 was an awesome and bittersweet year for me.  I got married in August ๐Ÿ’š The bittersweet is that I stepped down from a majority of my teams in the summer + some closed down.  My plate was so full, something had to change.  

I super appreciate those that still visit my blog and follow me on IG and FB.

As a small token of my thanks, I’m doing TWO separate giveaways.  

THIS one is for my international friends.  I’m giving away a ยฃ20 Gift Card to Seven Hills Crafts.  Please add your
first and last name along with ‘International’ next to it along with 
your comment below.

For my US Friends, I have a Priority Mail box filled with goodies, here’s just a portion of the products.  Please add your first + last name along with “US” to 
your comment below.

All that are pictured are brand new, I will add gently used stamps to the box too!

To be eligible for one of my prizes, you will need to add 
your information and leave me a comment please ๐Ÿ’š

FYI:  I’m managing my giveaway this way to give my 
international friends a chance to win something.  Unfortunately, 
the cost of shipping makes it prohibitive for me to send out 
goodies like my US prize.  

The winner will be announced on this post Monday, January 7th, 
5:00 am pacific’ish.

โ˜…Edited to add winnersโ˜…
International winner:

Congrats Fikreta!

US winner:

Congrats Angie!

Both winners have been emailed!
Up next is my friend, Tricia Barber!  In case you get lost 
along the way, here’s the complete hop listing:

  1. Oh, Amy! What a delight to see a collection of your cards all in one post! I am so glad you included the one with your Mom; it is so special. Will have to bookmark this post for inspiration throughout the year. I was feeling a little blue as I sometimes do the first week in January. This blog hop is just what I need to get my creativity going! Thanks for sharing!

  4. First of all, I did not know you got married in August! Congratulations, Amy!!!! I love reading happy news like this, even though I'm late reading it! My August was not so happy – hubby had a stroke. He's alive and doing okay but the brain takes a long time to heal. On a happy note, I absolutely love the cards you showcased – my favourite is the frame for April. Gorgeous! Also love seeing all of those critter cards! Thank you for your very generous giveaway!
