My BloGIVErsary!!!

UPDATE:  Thank you for your participation! This giveaway is now closed!
Hello there everyone and welcome to a new Wacky Wednesday! Today will be a little different... This is my 5 year BloGIVErsary and as a thank you I am offering this blog candy to one lucky winner!  So, without further ado, our word this week is:

wondrous  - meaning to be marveled at 
(corny, I know)

Let's take a step back in time to 5 years ago... This birdhouse was the first picture I ever posted, it is also one of my favorite quilled pieces.  I made this house warming card for friends of ours.  They had just moved back into the area after having lived in Florida for a few years, after having moved to many different local towns.  As you spin the spinner all of the places (towns and states) that they had lived would be displayed.  For the picture I left it on the smiley face!  I look at it and have to chuckle a little as I apparently put a collection of just about every flower imaginable on the front of the card - lol.  The little blue bird hanging out on the brad is a cutey!  Sigh... memories! Which reminds me, I need to make some more of these cards, I remember how much fun they were to make, and you know my affinity to birdhouses... :-)

The candy is made up of a variety of paper crafting items - the book Twirled Paper which comes with a slotted quilling tool and quilling strips! A Fiskars corner punch, Stampendous alphabet stamps, a 4x6 stack of colored vellum, pretty skeleton leaves, and a few more items that I will add in. I thought it would be nice to share the comment wealth to be entered for a chance to win.  The first place I saw this done was over at Becca's Amazing Paper Grace, what you do is go to one of my older posts and pick a comment and leave a message on the blog of the person who commented - make sure you tell them that "Antonella Quilling Art and Expression sent you".  Then come back here and let me know who you commented on.  I know that messages make my day, so this is a sweet way to share.

So, to win the candy you can do the following:
  1. Find a comment from one of my earlier posts, and leave a comment on the commenter's blog and tell them that "Antonella from Quilling Art and Expression sent you".  Then come back to this post and leave me a comment to let me know who you commented on.  This is referred to as Sharing the Comment Wealth!
  2. Optionally, you can get another chance by leaving me a separate comment telling me that you blogged about this giveaway and have sent your readers a link back to this post.  Grab the badge at the bottom of this post and let me know where you blogged or otherwise posted about this giveaway!
  3. Optionally, you can get another chance by leaving a separate comment if you are already a follower, or enjoy what you see here and become a new follower, leave another comment letting me know you are a follower.

That's it, you can enter up to 3 chances to win this candy.  Since this is my first blog-candy giveaway, I will probably add more goodies, because this is way too fun... so stay tuned :-)

I will be selecting one winner on Friday, July 1st using random.org and will announce the winner on this blog!

Good Luck everyone and have a Wondrous Day!
