Wow - Catherine - what an amazing give-away. Those cards looks beautiful!! I will claim "e" as well - I'm a dog person, a card crafter, a photograph-aholic and a lover of the beauty God gave us to enjoy!! And I've been following you for a while now!! ;o) Enjoy your week!

A, animal lover suits me. I love writing notes to people and send a lot, and I add stickers & other pretties, so this would be fun to win.
I am a follower.

BeadedTail said...

What a very generous giveaway Catherine! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I'm a long time follower of you and Banjo!

I'm mostly an Animal Lover with a little of the others mixed in. I'm trying to become more of a Photography Buff thanks to you and today I left my husband high up on a ladder trimming a tall bush so that I could go get my camera to take photos of a dragonfly! He didn't quite understand but I kept telling him about the eyes on the back of its head that you found so hopefully my photos turn out or I'll be in trouble!

Enjoy your week off!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Catherine, Wow---what a giveaway... Too bad I don't participate anymore... Darn!!!!!!

Anyhow---I guess I would choose D---since we spend so much time in the garden and out in nature searching for waterfalls... BUT--I also am a C since we love photography....

What I am NOT is a B.... ha ha

Becca said...

Hi Cartherine, congratulations! I hope you'll enter me into your giveaway. I guess I'd have to say a) Animal Lover, because even though I love b) c) and d) they are not as precious to me as my kitties and all things furry! Have a great week! :-)

CatherineLovesRoses said...

Hi Catherine!! So difficult to choose between all the options, but for me, it wil be A. I am an animal lover, and being a vegetarian in a place where people doesn´t understand why you don´t eat "jamon" it´s not an easy thing, I can assure you... ;)

Thank you for these great giveaway, full of lovely items!!!

Hope you have a wonderful week, my sweet friend!!!

Hello Catherine:

I just stopped by to thank you for your lovely comment on my sister post, and for the birthday wishes. I do love the wooden angels, indeed. I have another who cradles a dog, given to me three years ago when our beloved Yorkie passed away. I think these angels may be infused with a little healing magic!

Love the categories you listed. All apply to me but I am an animal lover above all else. However, please omit me from the's all absolutely beautiful -stunning note cards!- and I would so enjoy it..but as I just won a box of goodies, I think this should go out to someone who hasn't had a treat for a while!

Good talking to you. I'll be back to visit soon. Congratulations on 699 posts. Wow!


Hazydaisy said...

I'm jumping in at the last minute , I think :)
Can I say I'm an e- all of the above?
I love all animals,love to craft, I'm obsessed with photography and love the natural world so I just can't choose one!
Have a great weekend, Catherine!
