100th post, crochet flowers, and a GIVEAWAY!

Hello! So glad it's the weekend, how about you?

I have several fun things to announce today! First up, this is my 100th post! Yippee for me! I can't believe I debated with myself for so long over starting this little old blog. It has been immensely rewarding and fun, and I have all of my loyal readers to thank! Your comments and support mean the world to me, truly they do!

You may have seen some of my previous posts featuring little crochet flowers on my cards, here, here and here. I've been planning to put some up in my Etsy shop, Sea Glass Papercrafts, and they are finally posted! Hop on over and check them out! There are currently 4 sets listed, but there will be more soon.

All of the colors I have made so far coordinate with Papertrey Ink colors. If there is an interest, I will add some SU! colors, too. If you'd like different quantities or colors, leave me a comment or send me a message at my shop and I will be happy to whip some up just for you!

That leads me to my last announcement: to say thank you to my readers, I'm giving away a prize package to one lucky person!

This package includes:
Hamtpon Art Stamps (Block with Words & Icons)
Inkadinkadoo Stamps (Foliage Trails)
Recollections Floral Embellishments
Me & My Big Ideas Journey Tags with Strings
Studio G Halloween Rub-Ons
Making Memories Travel Word Fetti
K & Company Ephemera pack
K & Company adhesive gems
Queen & Co. pearls
Queen & Co. pink rhinestones

and...your choice of 6 crochet flowers from my Etsy shop, any color

I know, pretty great, right?! BTW, none of these companies have provided items or compensation to me, these are just things that caught my eye that I wanted to include in this giveaway.

All you need to do for your chance to win is leave a comment on this post telling me what colors of flowers you would most like to have if you win (they can be any colors, not just what is currently in my shop). Super easy! You have until Tuesday, August 10 at 11:59 PM EST to leave your comment, after which I will select one random winner. Only one comment per person, please!

Thanks so much for helping me to reach 100 posts! I can't wait to see what the next 100 bring. Once again, I truly appreciate all of your support and comments.

I'll be back later with a card! I hope you'll stop by again!

What a great givaway! Thanks for the opportunity! I'd love to see some SU colors, like Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, and Bashful Blue.

Anika said...

Congrats on 100 posts! I'm planning a giveaway for mine also - hopefully I will make it to 100 before September. What a great little package you have here! I love your flowers so until I learn how to crochet myself, I would love them in Pure Poppy!

Dana said...

Oh Christina, your crochet flowers are just lovely. I especially like the Aqua/ocean group...gorgeous. Congrats on 100 posts too!
I'd love to see some vintage cream/ivory colored flowers the most. They can be used for so many different things!

Create Fabulous said...

So sweet of you to give this all away! And congratulations on your 100th post :)

Your crochet flowers are beautiful...I would love to see them in Hawaiian Shores and Simply Chartreuse (a little unconventional for flowers...but I love those new colors!)

Karen B. said...

Well congrats on your 100th post. I think I signed on maybe around your 75h and I've been meaning to go back and look at your fabulous work. I really find myself using a lot of So Saffron but that is because I've yet to purchase any colored PTI cardstock. Still using my SU until it's all gone. Your flowers are great by the way!

Marisa said...

Congrats on your 100th post! Aren't blogs fun :) So many wonderful people to be inspired by and get to know - love it :D Thanks for the chance to win some wonderful blog candy! I love flowers in just about any colour, and stamp for that matter LOL, but tend towards the pink ones for some reason, even though I'm not really a pink girl. Figure that one out LOL!

Ellie said...

WOW how amazing & fun will someone be having w/your giveaway. Congrats on your 100 posts as well as for me I would love to see Chocolate Chip and Old Olive from SU to get ready for the those fall cards I have started to see.

Diane Jaquay said...

This is such a generous give away! Let's see, I guess I would love any shade of pink or orange :)

Nance Leedy said...

Congratulations on 100 posts, Christina! Inspiring and creative every single one. Cheers!

Congrats on your 100th post!

I would definitely love some Melon Berry, some Ocean Tides, some Dark Chocolate and some Enchanted Evening!

I'm having a giveaway on my blog, too, for my second Blogoversary, maybe you'd like to enter your comment to win a Papertreyink stamp set. Check it out!

Jen Carter said...

Congratulations on your 100th post! I love your blog so I am very happy that you decided to start one! Color of flowers...well, it is hard to choose just one but I'd have to go with Raspberry Fizz or Hawaiian Shores!

Anneke XOXO said...

I really love your cards, thanks for sharing them with us.
I also like your crochet flowers. I like all the colours of papertray ink, my abosute favorites are berry sorbet, plum pudding and ocean tides.
Have a nice day!

Shelley said...

Hey Christina! You know I haven't been been around the blog much but I am so glad I stopped in for a peek! You know I love your crocheted flowers! What a wonderful, generous giveaway! You know I finally bought the PTI paper sampler so I could see the colors in person. I have to say, I like Berry Sorbet, Melon Berry and Hibiscus Burst a lot. I will admit, though...I can't keep them straight in my head!

Heather Rogers said...

Oh I just found your blog and your creations are wonderful! I will be a follower now! :)
Pink..any color. Always a pink girl.

Jo said...

Oh your flowers are adorable Christina! My fav colour combo at the mo is aqua with poppy red!

Marianne S. said...

Congratulations on your 100th post, I hope to reach 100 on my new blog. I am going to become a follower. I would have to say that if I opted for crochet flowers, in color and not white, I would most likely go with any shade of purple. Thank you for the chance of winning your awesome giveaway package. I would love to have you stop over at my blog sometime.

Gorgeous little flowers....I'm loving those little "berry sorbet" looking ones!!!

Angela said...

I just came across your blog after checking out one of your awesome cards that you made for the Wee Memories Butterflies Challenge! Your cards are super cute and I am looking forward to seeing your future projects! My favorite flower color combo is the Zest & Terracotta. Very pretty! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Smita said...

Congratulations... and thank you for the chance.

Your flowers are very very pretty. I am a regular visitor here and I love your color schemes. I would love flowers in vintage colors and in pinks.

Hugs from India,

Carolyn Ruiz said...

I think that your flowers are so very pretty! I like to crochet too and I was thinking of making my own but I'm not sure how to do it. Anyway, the colors you have picked are all great! I really like the poppy color and I also like cream and peach.

BTW, I really like your dad's card that you made. I have that punch and never thought of using that way! awesome idea if you ask me. :)

Thanks for sharing all your creativity and making our blogs a brighter place!
