We Have a Winnah!


Well...does anyone even know I held a contest for 250 custom greeting cards, courtesy of UPrinting.com? If you've been in the know, you must be one of the few. Even after advertising it with a sticky at the top of my blog - and Tweeting about it several times - only seven of you entered. That's 7. What's up with that?? I thought this was a great contest! Didn't anyone want free cards? Free custom cards? Free custom, professionally printed greeting cards? I know I always need nice cards for something...and since my blog is mostly about art and parenting, I really thought this contest would be popular. But seven entries?? Do I need to start sending out checks in order to have friends...again??

For those fantastically awesome readers who did enter, thank you. Your odds were really good - and I wish I could award a prize to each of you. Since I can't, let me say this...I am going to be announcing not one, but two new contests in the next couple of days...so keep your eyes open. The upcoming prizes are exciting!

Oh wait - maybe I need to restate (what I thought was) the obvious...you guys do know that PRIZE means FREE, right? Just checkin'.



Random.org chose the winner - and although I would usually insert a drum roll here, I'm afraid the echo from my apparent lack of readers may injure someone's ears...and I need all the readers I can get for these next two contests.

Seriously... 7??


Lucky number six is...
Katie, Kevin and kids said...
I would like to make notecards to give as teacher gifts


Congratulations!! Thank you so much for participating in the giveaway, all seven of you. (Can you tell I'm a little bothered?) I'm off to email Katie, Kevin and kids right now - I really hope you like the cards. UPrinting.com does a superior job!

xx,

I don't think you lack friends at all. Sometimes, I get almost no entries for the things I giveaway as well. who knows why...but rest assured, we are indeed reading your blog!

I was away for two weeks taking a break from blogging. Oops. Guess I missed this one!
Anyway, congratulations to the winner!
Also noticed you have a different blog design :)
Where's your art, though? I always like looking at your artwork :)

Well congrats to Katie,Kevin and kids. I feel special even though I didn't win because I am a member of the elite 7 that entered....lol Can't wait to see what your next one is.

Hey gurl, sorry its been a minute, but I've been busy both on and offline. And you had an ad that was stealing your views for a min so I just kept up in google reader (maybe that's why you only got the seven entries)

I'm kinda upset I missed the contest too. I coulda used those biz cards *sniff* That'll learn me to keep up with my new friends lol. Well, I'm here now gurl, take care

Well Heck Fire Queen, I would have entered your contest, but I just found you, cause you just found me. So now I will be reading your blog and you'll probably get tired of me!
Hugs,

Congrats to the winner. I entered BTW. Have you entered mine yet for October? Have a great weekend!

Lin said...

Uh oh. I don't typically enter the contests because I never win and then I'm really sad. Sorry, pally. I guess I'll join in on the next two. Sure and then you'll have like a cabillion entries and then I won't win. Ugh! Hey, I did see you over on FishHawk's site today---nice link!

One Creative Queen said...

Ok, since all of you have very good excuses, I'll forgive you...this time. lol I actually love all of you to death - so I couldn't really be mad at any of you!

Duni - I hope your vacation was wonderful - you so deserved some time away!

Ann & Paige - I'm glad you entered - and I wish I could've split the prize between all of you. You may not have won this time - but know you are both special to me. (And I don't mean that as you ride the short bus, either!)

Kenya - You are the second person who has said that. I don't know what ad it could possibly be - I haven't signed up for any ads. I really think Blogger has gone crazy off and on lately. I'm sorry you got that...but I'm glad you came back! Make sure you enter the sticker contest that's going on now! :)

FishHawk - What can I say? I love you beyond words! Thank you so much - and I really do hope the link love is returned to you in ways you can't even imagine!

Brenda - I'm glad I found you...and you found me! I'll never get sick of you, girl - hang around all you want. :)

Lin - I always want you to enter! You may have better luck than you think - especially if I continue to have this sad turn out. If that happens again, I'm going to give out my own prizes to those who don't win. :) And thanks for the comment about FishHawk's site - wasn't that sweet? I really appreciate the link love - and could just squeeze FishHawk to death! ;)
