Post #499 - Win a Prize!

Here I am ~ post #499! I started this blog on June 15, 2008 ~ 491 days ago!

I either have a lot to say or need to 'get a life'! Ha ha! ;-)

I have seen quite a few bloggers celebrate their 'big numbers' with give-a-ways. I wanted to get into the action as well!

So ~ want to get started on your Christmas card send out list?

If you are interested in winning this set of 4 Christmas cards I made this weekend ~ leave a comment in the comment field below this post by 6:00 pm (Saskatchewan Time!), Wednesday, October 21/09 and I will draw from the names and send them to the winner! (I'll have my hubby choose a number from 1 to the highest comment number ~ won't he be thrilled to help? ha ha!)

Whether you are a follower, faithful reader, pop in once a week, or this is your first time looking at my blog! It doesn't matter!
In your comment ~ tell me:
1) Your first name {or your blog site}
2) What province or state or country you are from
3) What is one thing you are really good at?
4) What is one thing you would like to learn?

{Note: Don't have a google account to put in a comment? Just sign is as "Anonymous" but make sure you put the above information!}

By 7:00 am, Thursday, October 22/09 I will announce the winner on post #500 ~ giving you my e-mail address so that you can send me your mailing address in order for me to send you your cards!
Click on the pictures to see the details: "Let it Snow" & "Gingerbread Men"

Good Luck!

I'll be back on Thursday morning to let you know who the winner is!
