Extra, Extra, Extra and More!

Today is a very special day in so many ways!  First I want to thank all of my followers, who take the time to visit and comment!  We all know how much time that takes and I am Over the Moon thrilled to have all of you joining me on this amazing adventure!  Your response to my blog touches my heart in so many ways and I am blessed and so thankful each and every day!
Tomorrow is my day to share at Artistic Outpost, but I thought this little "Newsies" could help me share the news today!   He is part of the new "Paperboy" and is he not as cute as can be?  For all the details and more pictures, please visit AO tomorrow and say, "hello."   Would love to see you there! 

Today is my "30th" Anniversary with the love of my life!  How did that happen so fast?  Each year that I celebrate my marriage anniversary, I also celebrate by Blog Anniversary and today we are "3."   Well it is actually May from the first post, but that was just to see how it worked!  Oh did I mention how much I love blogging and all my blogging friends?  Well I do!  I love creating, even if I started this later in life and I love joining in on Design Teams, as you all know is a blast.  So to thank you for all the encouragement and friendship you have so generously given to me, I am offering to one of my fabulous followers this gift.   I do wish I could give you all a gift and if I ever win the lottery, I will! 
The winner will be announced as I always do, on April 1st and will have a week to contact me for the GC code!  If I don't hear from the winner a new winner will be chosen on April 7th.  The Funkie Junkie Boutique is a fabulous store to shop at and I know you will enjoy looking around!  If you would like to add my blog candy to your blogs sidebar that would be just lovely and an extra throw in the hat, but certainly not required! 

Remember the new March Referral Program at Artistic Outpost has started, so pull out those AO stamps and join in for a chance to win!   I am also taking my little guy over for a visit across the pond to join in on a brand new challenge blog "Country View Crafts" for there "Pick and Mix" an anything goes challenge! 

Again I thank you for being a part of my blogging world and have a great week! 

Stamps:  Artistic Outpost, Paperboy
Ink:  Distress, Tumbled Glass,  Salty Ocean, Walnut Stain, Brushed Corduroy, Archival Black
Marker: Old Paper

Dear Terry
Thirty years is most definitely something to celebrate - congratulations!
Double congratulations - 3 years blogging - yipee! I am so glad to count you as a friend and also a DT sister.
A fabulous tag, a tag which shows exactly why people want you to be on their DTs.
It is an incredibly generous giveaway, there is not one person who would not love to win this prize so thank you.
Here's to another 3 years (and beyond!) of blogging.
Wishes
Lynne
P.S. I will add to my sidebar.

Fantabulous tag Terry and a brilliant way to announce your double celebrations. Congratulations on both! I always admire your work at FSC and F&F but I'm embarrassed to say I've just noticed I'm not signed up as a follower. I've sorted that but it's genuinely not because of your very generous candy.
