The BIG give away has begun!!

Hello to all my new friends...
Can you believe the big day has finally arrived?? I am so excited for this give away, I would like to thank each of you for all your kind words and comments... I have received so many comments on my new blog and my postings I cannot tell you how much they mean to me. I am so looking forward to all the new friends I have yet to make and getting to know my new friends better.

I promised a big give away and I mean this is going to be a big one to celebrate the birth of my new blog. I have also decided to have 3 winners, that's right I will be picking 3 of you lovely women to receive gifts... yes I did say gifts. The grand prize winner will receive 3 gifts, second will receive 2 and third place will receive 1.... but I promise you they will all be gorgeous and something you will want to keep for years to come. In order to choose the winners I will need for you to do the following:

1st~ leave a comment about the give away
2nd~ (And this is for your name going into the drawing twice) is to become a follower of my blog, if you already are a follower just let me know
3rd~ Put this give-away on your blog...I promise it will be worth it!!

Please, please leave me your email with your comment, I would hate for you not to come back to visit and not know you may have won... very important. I have decided to keep the gifts a surprise... I am so excited they are so pretty I wanted to make it a great surprise when you win!! Good luck to everyone!

So that's it... I also wanted to say I am going to be sending a special gift to Debbie for creating this wonderful blog for me and for her kindness in helping me get it started...Thank you Debbie for everything! Thank you again to all of you... I am really looking forward to blogging in 2011!!

Hi Lorene, your blog is lovely.

Thanks for such a kind and sweet comment you left on Bella Vista. It is wonderful to meet you.

Kimberly @ The Sterling Cherub said...

Hi Lorene!

What a clever tiered-prize system you've developed for your first give-away, I've not seen one like it before! As I said on my little blog, it is quite clever and very generous to say the least!

I just became a follower of your lovely blog today, and I've also done a post on my brand new blog about your give-away. Not sure how much traffic you are going to get from my blog, as I believe I am the only soul in the universe reading it (well, that's not entirely true ... one of my kittens was in my lap when I was posting on it, and I think she can read quite well, so that makes two readers so far! LOL!).

Good luck to all who have entered your give-away, it promises to be a really nice one.

Kimberly
