Ali Edwards Capture life. Create art.

March 30, 2007

It’s Friday.


Giveaway #2:

Today the giveaway includes some of my favorite things right now.

• I love the big chipboard and big stamps from Fancy Pants (your package will include two large stamp sets, one small stamp set, two chipboard sets, + the big acrylic block). The big chipboard pieces have been inspiring me in so many ways this last few weeks.
• My all time favorite stamp "Notes from Today" from Catslife Press.
• A self-inking circle stamp from 7gypsies.
• A 8×8 binder album from Maya Road (used in the Evolution project from yesterday)

Leave me a comment
and we will do the same drill tonight as yesterday: comments closed at 6:45pm Pacific and the drawing will be at 7:00pm Pacific.

And again, remember: encourage just one more person about the badge. Call your Mom or your Dad. I love the idea of chatting up your neighbor. You can even help them through the process online. Make a new friend. One more more…one more.

The contest ends tomorrow night at 11:59pm Eastern. Today and tomorrow and that is it for this particular adventure. After that they will have to go through and verify the individual donations before we will know the final numbers.

Crazy. Crazy good.

One more person.

Go team, go.

    This is so tremendous! Just think of the doors that will be opened because of this money! What a blessing for all those families that will be lifted up and supported by the things that Autism Speaks will be able to accomplish with the funds you have raised!
    It’s crazy awesome good! Beyond words to some extent! It restores faith in the human condition to see this kind of out pour!
    Blessings to you and your fam!

    Love the idea of tossing them in the air and letting them fall – how cool is that ! We are hosting an all day crop tomorrow and I will do the same for our prize winners…I could say I heard about picking winners this way from Ali !! I have flyers to hand out with registration to let the gals know about the donations and we will have a computer set up for the ladies to use ! You are an awesome Mom – your son will do wonderful things
