Happy New Year Blog Candy Giveaway

Time For ANOTHER Blog Candy Giveaway!!

After the fun of doing my recent giveaway and receiving such nice feedback, I can't help but want to do another!

Both winners of my last giveaways sent me the sweetest emails.

From Rebecca, winner of the vintage themed prize:
"Your package arrived today and it was like unwrapping a treasure trove! I love the color of the bell/salt shaker- it's like Tiffany blue! I absolutely loved the New Year's victorian postcard- I think I will scan it and use it on my blog tomorrow. I have a pair of summer sandals that are perfect for adorning with the clip back earrings. And of course I just love that little Sizzix die cut!
Thank you! So very much!"

And from Bonnie, the winner of the craft themed prize:
"My goodies arrived today and wow! There's more stuff in there than what looked like on your blog! I'm in love with that lace ribbon. It sure did brighten my day as I was getting really depressed today between my head, Ken and going back to work."

So, being the beginning of the New Year, I thought it would be a great way to start 2011!
Here are the things I have to give away this time:

Since Valentine's Day is not too far off ( well- it really isn't you know!), I thought I'd theme it around that holiday and offer things for you paper crafters to use for Valentine's Day cards, candy packaging and scrapbook pages.

I am a huge fan of Sizzix, and if you've been reading my blog for the past few months you know I have hit the last couple of Sizzix warehouse sales pretty hard, lol. I purposely bought extra goodies with Blog Candy for my blog readers in mind.

And I love using doilies both on cards and on scrapbook pages any time of year, but when could be better than at Valentine's? These ribbons should be great too, don't you think? It''s hard to tell from the pic, but the one on the far left is a deep red velvet- so elegant. The spool next to it is a sheer white ribbon with a satiny center with red hearts on it. The ribbon on the wide spool is sheer with gold hearts. And the ones in the little box on the right are really pretty, too: the top one is sheer with hearts on it, the middle one is pink velvet, and the bottom one is glittery rick rack.

And how can you have a bunch of stuff to make cards without stamps? I thought this set would be more versatile than one just for Valentine's, but the row of hearts should certainly suffice for the occasion :-)
I am including two different shapes of red eyelets and a roll of red mesh for embellishing.

Of course I just can't help adding at least something vintage-y. So, I have chosen a pretty little red and white vintage hankie that has pretty flowers and scrolls that resemble hearts on it.

Now for the details on how to enter:
All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what, if any, New Year's resolution you have made for this year!
And, for bonus entries:
If you are a follower and mention that in your comment, you will get an additional entry.
If you have a blog and put my blinkie on your sidebar, you'll get another entry.
If you mention this give away on your blog and put up a link, you'll get yet another entry.

One condition remains with this give away, as was with my last: you must be a resident of the U.S. or Canada (I am sorry but at this time the cost of postage to other countries is just too costly). Actually I am adding Canada, as I know I have many Canadian followers and I am willing to splurge the extra amount, as it is not as high as other international countries. I thank you all for your understanding of these conditions.

I will pick the winner using "Random Thing Picker" again and announce the winner next Saturday, January 8th.

As always, I thank you so much for visiting my blog.
I hope you have a very happy and healthy new year!

What wonderful blog candy!!! You are such a sweet generous person!!!

I've resolved to remain "smoke" free this year, lost 30 pounds that I put on last year after my Heart Attack and quitting smoking.

Lova ya!!!

Oh my word, Sarah! Such fun stuff in your blog candy.

As for NY's resolutions, I don't make any. They would be broken before the stroke of midnight.

I hope that the New Year brings lots of good things your way.

Much love to you and your family!
