Win an i-rock!

Just Imagine is giving away a cool blog candy and I couldn’t resist sharing it with you. I’ve seen the i-rock around and wonder if it’s really all it’s cracked up to be. I don’t know…but I’ve entered to win one! I think you should, too. Here’s a photo of my favorite apron from the crew.

Copic Winner

Copic Winner

A little over a month ago I posted a little blog candy for some copic markers and a 3D cowboy boot. The boot is a template from Ellen Hutson. I used the template to make both a 3D boot and some  cards. You can see more in the original blog candy post.

I would like to thank everyone for participating in the blog candy. Thanks, too, for looking at the $1.3 Million Dollar House. As you can see in the graphic, the winner is #5.

I like the cowboy boot card. That’s a good one for guys. I would love to win the markers. My family enjoys doing crafts.

Congratulations, Milton! Please email me your mailing address and I’ll send you the markers, boot and cards!

Blog Candy – Cowboy Style

This post will stay on top until the giveaway.

Blog Candy – Cowboy Style

Today I have some blog candy that includes 12 copic markers and some homemade cowboy boot cards and gift box. I was inspired to create this giveaway package after I created 4 prize cards for a house raffle I am working on. I could use your help in spreading the word about the blog candy and the raffle. See details below about how to register to win.

The Pikes Peak Rotary Club of Woodland Park, CO is raffling off a $1.3 Million Dollar Colorado Mountain Home. I’m helping them market the raffle and run the 8 early cash prize drawings. My twin sister, Deborah Bagley, emceed the 2nd $10,000 early cash drawing and she prepared a little comedy sketch to announcement of the 4 lucky winners. She went with a western theme, so I prepared little cowboy boot prize cards.

The boot template from Ellen Hutson is for the 3-D boot gift box. I simply used the front part to create the prize cards. I used some brown cardstock for the base of the boot and paper from The Best of Kay & Company for the top portion. I scraped a bit of white Staz-on ink around the edges of the brown portion of the boot to give it a bit of scuff marks. I created the numbers in Microsoft Word and used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give the boots and numbers a bit of depth. The back is white cardstock to give the cards strength and to provide a place to write the names of the winners of the 2nd early drawing.

I thought it would be fun to create a greeting card in the shape of a boot. So I folded a piece of brown cardstock in half and traced around the template.

Again, I used a piece of paper from The Best of Kay & Company for the top portion of the boot. I couldn’t resist adding a few gems! I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. As before, I scraped the white Staz-on inkpad along the brown part of the boot to scuff it up a bit.

Blog Candy –  The Whole Western Package

Now for the giveaway. I am giving away everything you see in this post. That includes the 3D cowboy boot full of 12 copic markers, the 4 prize cards and the boot greeting card.

Copic markers are great for blending. I have hand selected these for blending and for variety. I think they will make a great starter set or great addition to any collection. The blog candy includes: YG63, YG67, Y15, Y17, B95, B99, R29, R39, E00, E13, YR18 and C1. That’s yellow, blue, green, red, orange, flesh tones and light grey (for adding shadows).

I will ship internationally.

I’m hoping to raise big time awareness about the raffle. We are giving away a $1.3 Million Dollar Colorado Mountain Home on July 9, 2010. There are up to 40 chances to win cash prizes or the house. There are big cash prizes every two weeks, now thru June 4th. Proceeds benefit charity. The house is 6,300 square feet on 20 acres of heavily forested land.
