Shameless attempt at upping my Followers!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! I have been having a peaceful morning today. My hubby picked up the paper for me before I crawled out of bed and then he went hunting. He is a bow hunter so he is traipsing around in the woods this morning. Since we share our children with their in-laws now we are not having Thanksgiving dinner until around 5 PM.  I got to spend this morning finishing up a card to share with you.  So here is the deal, I am going to be involved in a blog hop on the 27th and am going to be a guest designer on another site in December. You can read that post here: http://brenscraps.blogspot.com/2010/11/some-things-to-look-forward-to.html.

I have been racking my brain on how to get more followers, I am a full time worker outside of the home so I don't seem to have as much time to be hopping around to other sites, even though I do my share!!!  Today I have 26 followers, I want more!!!  LOL.  But really, I want to have more so that when I do share my design team creations, I get to share those sites that I am representing to more followers, that is not really shameless is it? :)

How many of you have bought copics thinking that you don't have it, then you get it home and you have it. So I have a few doubles.  No biggie, I can use when the ink runs out in the ones I have, or I can challenge all of you to help me build my followers.

I am going to run this through the holiday weekend.  Today I have 26 followers, and I am going to give a copic marker away to one of those followers, when I reach 50 followers, I am going to add another, if I reach 75, I will add another, it is up to you all how many copic markers I add.  I will add 1 for every 25 followers I get added to my blog.  That's not all, I have a set of stamps that I have from when I was selling CTMH, it has never been used.  I also am adding a pkg of charms as well as some flowers.  I am going to let you decide how you advertise my blog candy.  :)  I will also let you, the winner pick which markers of the ones that I have to add to your collection.
These are all brand new, if I need to buy some more I will!!!!
Here are the other goodies.  I have not figured out the random org, or link it, but I promise I am an honest person and will let my little granddaughter pick the winner.

Now I want to share the card I finished this morning.  It is with a newer CC Designs Stamp, Sugarplums Cookie Emma.  Isn't she a doll?  I used this lovely paper from My Mind's Eye and this Label Nestie that I received from my friend Gina.
I popped the sentiment on the card as a tag.  Of course you know I will show you the inside!!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, I love comments by the way!!! 
Enjoy your day today with family and friends!!!  Now to get into the kitchen to work on my dinner!

Hey, chickie! I'll put a link over on my blog for you! You should pop into the CDAC group to ask them to do the same. That card is fabulous. I'm glad to see that you can use the nestie. I love this image and the sentiment is perfect.

I am a new follower. Your work is beautiful! I have no Copics at the moment, so that would be nice, but I really like your work. Have a good weekend.
