I am so excited to share my love for Close To My Heart With All of You!!  I am celebrating my anniversary and will be drawing for several winners of CTMH products plus Digi stamps from some awesome sponsors - to be given away on May 1st.   Thanks for celebrating with me!!   Please No CTMH Consultants.

I am not allowed to ship CTMH products outside the US; but I have free Digi stamps to be given to any name I draw that is outside the US.  Please place a 1 behind your name when you register if you live outside US.  This will make it easier when I do the drawings to know who gets Digi Stamps and who gets CTMH products.  Thanks for your understanding. 

I am also having a separate drawing for $25 FREE CTMH products for everyone who orders at least $50 from my CTMH website in April.  You must click on the April Orders "Join" button under "Gloria's Gatherings" on the main page of my website to qualify at  See all of my April specials under the Specials tab at the top of my blog. 

I have 7 fabulous sponsors so far that have generously donated Digi stamps or gift certificates so that I can share the love to all my followers and not just the US.  I am very grateful for their generosity.  Be sure to check out their stores and blogs for a wonderful selection of Digis.  Thanks so much sponsors for your wonderful support.

    1. Thank you Desire for your help in getting me set up to use my first linky and my first Random Generator. I hope I can remember how to do them for the next time. That was a lot of fun!! I forgot one prize and added it; so now have a total of 23 prizes. It was so much fun using the random generator and drawing numbers. It is addictive. I didn't want to stop. LOL. Again - you were a big help!! I do appreciate you and your friendship so much. You are one of the many generous people in blog land that goes above and beyond to help others. Hugs, Gloria

  11. Hey Gloria,
    Just wanted to let you know I received your surprise pack today and to say a huge "Thank You!" Spellbinders are always a big hit with me, I just love 'em! (and I have a ton!) And surprisingly enough I don't have this one, so nice job! I'm always rearranging things I've already adhered so the eraser will come in handy, and the buttons are so cute!
    Thanks again!
    Pam D
