bloggy giveaway freebie fun here!

It's the Big Blowout Summer Bloggy Giveaway! Hurray!

I didn't get mine posted bright and early this morning like I wanted to because I was up until 1:30 am cleaning, for heavens sake! What in the world is up with that??? When I finally tottered off to bed, the dishes were done, the clothes were washed and folded, and all the leftovers from the delicious dinner my honey made were put neatly into zip lock baggies and put into the fridge.

Plus, I scrapbooked most of the afternoon on Sunday, and in fact, I didn't put my stuff away until about 10:30 at night. Then I started cleaning. So I didn't get up when my alarm went off today.

But anyway, I've decided to give away an ever-popular gift...a gift card to Starbucks! There's a hidden bonus for me in this, because when I pick up the gift card, I get to buy a latte for me! Mmmmmmm...Starbucks is my favorite caffeine dealer, I mean retailer.

As a plus, I'll throw in four hand-crafted greeting cards made by me, design of my choice.

AND, someone doing some marketing for Cocoa Puffs sent me four coupons for a free box of the new whole-grain Cocoa Puffs, so I'll toss one of those into the prize drawing, and do three runner up drawings for a box of free cereal.

It's so simple. Leave a comment, you're entered. Fin (to quote a fellow blogger, you know who you are).

*** I tried to go back to add one more giveaway, but alas, the Mr. Linky was closed already. Click here for my other giveaway if you came here from the Bloggy Giveaway site. ***

Good luck!

travelingwithbaby said...

there's a starbucks on my stroller walking route. can i tell you how much will power it takes to not pop in there?! course, if the purpose was to USE a giftcard at starbucks, then, well, i just might have to try that new chocolate banana flavor. oh yes! ok, enough drooling. seriously, my stroller walks/run...avoiding the temptation. course, when it's in the mid-nineties, like it will be tomorrow, i'll need a cool treat to keep from melting!
