You Can Get LUCKY...Really LUCKY!


I think I live a charmed life. Really I do. And now my good fortune can rub off on you. (Uh, that rhymed, didn’t it?)

You—or a friend— can enter our Box O’Books Contest with a value of more than $150 (yes, I added another book over the weekend)—but there’s more. The lovely folks at Mrs. Grossman’s Stickers have offered another prize: A selection of their stickers with a $50 Retail Value. So now we have two contests with two super prizes, and all you have to do is sign in to this blog before March 17, 2008 which is St. Patrick’s Day. On March 18, 2008, we’ll draw choose two email addresses from the folks signed in, and notify you whether you’ve won the Box O’Books or the Mrs. Grossman’s Stickers. You’ll have 48 hours to respond, and then we’ll move on to another person signed in.

So tell all your friends! They can sign up, too, and maybe they’ll share.

Meanwhile, what can you do with stickers? Glad you asked…

1. Decorate a card like the one here. If you go to http://www.mrsgrossmans.com/stickerideas/ you’ll see the card, and instructions, as well as a link to templates you can use to make your own version of the card.

2. Decorate kids’ lunch bags or any plain gift bag. You can buy solid colored gift bags at WalMart or dollar stores and jazz them up with stickers.

3. Decorate a thin strip of cardstock--say 2" x 6" or 2" x 7"-- punch a hole in one end and thread ribbon through that, and use it as a bookmark.

I’ll share other ideas next week. Meanwhile, tell your friends about the contest. I truly believe that sharing makes all of us more lucky!

I thought your Box o' Books contest was generous before, and now even more so with Mrs. Grossmans's added incentive!
Books have always been my first love; scrapbooking has been a close second for the last 15 years.

I'm thinking of changing my name (again!) and signing up for those stickers!

Isn't this grand? Tell you what, I'll even throw in a couple of real four-leaf clovers...yep, I'm probably the BEST four-leaf clover finder you've ever heard of, so let me share the wealth.

I'm glad we're doing this--and it was so nice of Mrs. Grossman's help, wasn't it?

Love the idea of winning anything,
especially books and the stickers are really great as I use a lot of them, do a lot of snail mail...

Hugs

What a wonderful contest. I love books and I love scrapbooking. What else is there? LOL

Joanna Campbell Slan said...

Let's see. What else is there besides books and scrapbooking?

Hey--I think that about covers life as I know it! That and scrambling to get writing done!

Mrs. Grossman's agreed to send me some stickers as well. I'm going to see what fun projects I can whip up to show you-all.

Sounds like a great contest. I love mysteries and crafting both. What a great combination.

Kathy--and All--

Do tell your friends since there'll be more than enough to share.

And by the looks of your participation, this won't be the only Box O'Books we do!
