Birthday/Blog-aversary Giveaway


I am 36 today. 
I was going to be all reflective and tell you how much my life has changed in just one year, and how I've lost, found, grown, and discovered many things about myself, and blah blah blah and all that drivel.
BORING.
Instead, I want to celebrate!
*grin*

So I'm having a give away.
My blog just turned 6 years old in January, and I'm 36 today... that's a difference of 30.
I'm offering a $30 gift certificate to your choice of stamp companies below.
(Don't you like my reasoning? *hee hee*)

or

Yes, I "work" for both of them. 
But hear me out.. 
I honestly like their products, and I think they are run by INCREDIBLE people with hearts of gold who are just the nicest, most generous, family oriented folks I know. They make me feel important and like a valued member of a team. They really do care about others and show it in many ways. Oh, and their customer service is top notch. 
Plus, it's my $30 *wink*

Here's the fine print:
  1. Leave me a comment (making sure I can contact you through email), telling me you follow my blog already, or are now following it. (for one chance)
  2. Leave a second comment telling me you "like" Denami on FB. (for another chance)
  3. Leave a third comment telling me you "like" Casual Friday Stamps on FB. (for a third chance)
  4. Or if you don't want to follow anything, just leave me a comment telling me whatever is in your head, as long as it's clean and PG *chuckle*  (for one chance)
I will draw a winner next week, and announce it here on March 22. Same time, same bat channel:) The winner will then have three days to contact me before I draw another one.
 Best of Luck!

Thanks for stopping by and celebrating my birthday and blog anniversary with me!
I hope you all have a wonderful day filled with new things.

fondly,
