I Won!!!!!! and you can too!!!

I am SO excited that I still haven't come down!!!! As I mentioned on my last post, I had created the Santa card for a My Favorite Things Guest Designer Contest!!! Well Guess what???? I WON!!!! I won ! I won! I WON!!!! I WON!!!! (can you tell that I am STILL a little excited????????)

So I get to be a GUEST Designer for January for the yet to be released stamps. Now HOW exciting is that!!!!! It was a THRILLING day in my Stamping Palace!!!!

Now normally, I just don't have the greatest luck, in fact I couldn't win a jig for an Orphan Pig......although once I won a half ton of Compost............yep, Black Gold..............recycled poop!!!! Let me tell you, it was nice for the garden, but I really was less than thrilled about it. I couldn't wear it, spend it or even sell it!!!!! But I was secretly a little excited because I did win something. I buy the odd lotto ticket, but haven't won anything more than 10 bucks!!! So now I feel as if I have HIT THE JACKPOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!

I am also very happy to see that I have almost 25, 000 hits on my site!!! That excites me too!!!!!

So as I bask in the glow of winning something meaningful, I would like to share the wealth with you!!!!

I have a little stamping package available for the winner, to be drawn on Tuesday. I would LOVE to hear your comments about the best or worse thing that you have won! Check back Wednesday morning to see if YOU are a WINNER!!!!!

I have the Very Punny Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!!! , Which was used to create This Card
as well as some ribbon and other neat little goodies!!!!!

Hope that you are all as lucky as I was this weekend!!!!!

  1. congratulations! I love your card that won and was not the least bit surprised about the win (although there were a LOT of other great entries as well) there's a lot to say about not having the 'luck' as you put it - but believe me when I say you have the 'skill' to win, plus, hello?! You're on the Hanna Stamps design team too - that was a WIN too. btw, you do NOT have to enter me in the contest I already have the set, just wanted to say congrats

  5. I got a really nice SU set once that I really like. I guess the worst ones are the ones you win that never get sent> I have several of those outstanding. Oh well,

    I did win a huge teddy bear in 6th grade. My brother then peed all over it and out it went. Brothers are so stinky! even when they are 40.

  6. I have won several blog candy contests with the best prize being a little acrylic paint can filled with goodies and then I can alter the paint can. Other than the blog candy--haven't won anything to say that it was bad. Thank for the chance to win your goodies.

  10. Congrads on the guest designer gig! It sounds awesome, just goes to show that good things DO come to those who wait!!! LOL I guess I would have to say the worst thing I have won would have to be a plunger with 3 rolls of toilet paper on the handle...a small gag tradition they started at my daughters school for prizes for the annual band fundraiser. Yeah, you get all excited when they call your number until they display the prize....haha Doesn't rank up there with your compost win but it was still pretty lame! :)

  12. Well I'm not sure if it's the best or the worst thing that I've won since I didn't use it...because I once won a FREE flying lesson on a radio contest. I'm not all that hip on flying so I chickened out about taking the lesson.

  15. Hi Vicki!
    WOW...what a great day you've had!
    Congratulations on your Guest Designer win, and your 25K hits!!!

    I actually won a Grandmother Clock (it's a little smaller than a Grandfather clock), in a drawing held at the opening of a new furniture store(this was over 15 years ago)...that was an absolute shock!

  17. Congratulations! The best thing I've ever one was a "Split the pot" at work. I was really tight on money and didn't know how I was gonna pay my bills, and I won $408, more than any of the previous pots were, and all I spent was $4. I was a really happy girl. God took care of me and my bills that month! Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. My son won a new car. Since he was only 10 years old, I was the one that got to drive it, so I guess it was as much my prize as it was his:) Congrats on your big win!!!

  21. Congratulations! That is awesome news! The strangest thing I have ever won was a pair of queen size sheets when I was about 7 years old. I was in a car with my cousin driving down a street and I saw a bear (someone dressed up as a bear) and I wanted to go see him. So he stopped the car and I got out and hugged the bear. We didn't even know that the radio just announced that whoever stops and hugs the bear gets a pair of queen size sheets! Yippee for me! Strange huh? Lol.
    Congrats again.

  26. I just had one of my scrap booking layouts published in Memory Makers magazine and won a free copy! I fully understand your excitement over the guest designer position. It's one of the things I'd love to do one day.

  27. Congratulations! Visiting my moms one weekend, I was not feeling well, she decided to drag me out to the main street festival, all the retailers were doing things on the street, plus food and fun! Our first peek, the jeweller had a fishing pond, and you pulled a 'fake stone' off of the big cone, to see underneath. I won the first wee diamond of 3. They took my picture for the town paper, there I was looking sick as a dog and no make up or hair done! hmmm what did I do with that? 20 years ago I bet! :)

  28. Congrats Vicki on your guest stamper win! Have fun with that!
    When I was 17, my parents entered my name in a raffle for a Texas mickey of rye. Well, guess what - I won the darn thing. But did I get to drink any of it? No sir-ee! But I had some pretty happy parents.

  29. My mom won a $1,200 ski package. Since she doesn't ski she gave it to my husband & I for Christmas. We had free skiing and 3 nights in a luxury lodge with a hot tub and fireplace in our room. She even babysat our daughter for us when we went.
