WOW!  Can you believe it?  This is post #1000 on my blog!

I know I can't believe it!

Be sure to read to the end, after the card and all it's information....  you may be rewarded if you do!

I created this card when catching up with the MojoMonday sketches again... and made it back at the beginning of the month when the CalGals gathered at Dianne's house to play
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Bashful Blue, Basic Black; PaperTreyInk White
*Patterned Paper:  Upsy Daisy Designs
*Images:  Stampin' Up! Well Scripted
*Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
*Tools:  Big Shot; Nestabilities; Corner Chomper
*Embellishments:  unknown white satin ribbon
*Challenges:  Mojo132

It's not spectacular, but it works.

So, now....  on to the really good stuff....  to celebrate 1000 posts by me (many cards, some just chit chat), I am offering up some blog candy.  Please leave a comment on this post letting me know what your favourite card that I've posted is and I'll enter your name in a draw to win a $25 (US) gift certificate to PaperTreyInk!

I will be closing the contest on Friday, May 7th... giving you one full week to get your entry in!

Please pass the word along that I'm giving away a prize!  I'd love to have lots of entries in the draw!

Wowsers! Good for you chickadee! I have way more than that but most of it ain't mine...ha! I am gonna link you up right now!

Allison said...

Oh yeah. I forgot to comment on your pretty card. That layout is too fun (I liked mine that I created with it too) and the mix of papers makes it good for either gender!

Lesley said...

Nancy, I've had many favourites, but I think my most recent fave was your all-white card.

As the "world's worst blogger" (self-awarded) I'm also amazed (jealous?) that someone has the dedication to hit 1000 blog posts! Congrats!

mudmaven said...

Holy Moly! 1000 is quite an achievement - congratulations! I had such fun going back and looking at all your wonderful posts - since 2006! I love so many of your cards that it would be impossible to pick one. I also so enjoyed the videos you share and the stories (love the crocheted blanket for the dentist!). Thanks for all the goodness you share with the rest of us - I for one really appreciate it! ~chris

Tracy.H said...

Wow! 1000 already!?! And they have all been amazing Nancy cards too! Looking back there are many that I loved, but I think this one from last July was one of THE best!

Stampin_melissa said...

Congrats on the posts! I enjoy following your blog not just for the gorgeous cards, (Love your simple and oh so elegant cards!) but the other things you share (like the Handsome Men video!) My favorite card would be the white on white card you did earlier in the month. GORGEOUS!! Keep up the good work!

Holy Dina - 1000 posts. What an accomplishment. I've enjoyed all your cards Nancy, but I really loved your white on white card from recently. I'm into simple and clean and not real cluttered with a lot of stuff, so this is indeed my fav. Again congrats on your 1000th post and keep up the good work!


Jackie said...

Congratulations! 1000 is quite a feat! I read your blog in Google Reader and never see your blog itself, but I love your background. I've looked and looked and keep coming back to the Fluffles card you posted on April 9. I love Fluffles and the brown and pink is adorable.

Kim Parke said...

Wow, Congratulations Nancy! I think my favorite card you've posted is (of course) a Christmas card. It's Santa's Belt from a post waaaaay back in November 2009. I love that image of Santa's face and how you incorporated it into the design. Keep up the wonderful work!

Mary-Beth said...

Congrats on that milestone Nancy, that is some achievement! I'm only at 700+ so I've got a ways to go to match you!!
I love all your cards but your Christmas cards are my favourite and this is one I really love!

SherylH said...

Congrats on the 1000th post Nancy. Mmmm to pick a favorite card -- I love today's colour combination. But the one on March 26 is one of my recent favorites -- love the colours and the different size.

Janet said...

Congrats! That's a huge milestone! AS for a card I love, I really like your fluffles card from December 2008--I really love how you colored it and blue is such a nice color.

Myrna said...

Congrats on your milestone!!
You have way too many favorite cards to choose just one.

First off, Congratulations on 1000 posts!!! As for my favourite card you posted, there were a lot that I liked, but my faves are the all white card, and the snowmen you did for Tracy's Christmas card challenge last year.

Noreen said...

Congratulations on reaching 1,000 posts! I really like the blue and white snowflake card you posted on Christmas last year.

Rachel D said...

This is my first visit to your blog. I scrolled back to Dec. '09 to check out your beautiful work. My favorites are the all white card with tulips and the Baroque Motifs card with punched flowers. Congrats on 1000 posts! I'm not even at 100 posts yet, so I can only imagine how much effort and dedication has gone into your blog. Thanks for sharing your good work and thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

Sandy said...

Thanks for all your inspiration over the past years. This weekend I spent several hours of enjoyment going back over your posts. What a great way to relax with my coffee cup!!! After picking my favourite 8 cards I kept coming back to one so I guess that must my fav...that would be the one on Dec. 28/08
Congrats on your 1000th post and thanks again for sharing your life and creativity with us.

ms.espresso said...

Congrats, Nancy! Does blogger count up posts for you or did you do the math all by yourself? (it can take so little to impress me sometimes!) I just did a quick browse back two cards stand out as ones I just loved... the orange one with the 'old stamp' and the card inspired by a Tiffany box- both fantastic cards... and I fully expect you've got many more to come!

Chookarooni said...

Oh love Papertrey Ink stuff - 1000 posts - good on you Nancy!

Marge said...

WOW, 1,000 posts -- huge congrats! I found your blog thru Allison (she's the best) and I just LOVE your ribbon bits card. Very sweet & very clever and I LOVE PTI!!! Thanks for a chance to win too.

Jen Price said...

My absolute favourite set of cards that you have done is the set of Christmas cards that you did in the blues using Stamp It Australia paper and the squares. I just love that paper and what you did with it!

Dixie said...

I found your blog through Merlie and love your cards. The blue and brown one on Jan 9, 2010 is definitely my favorite. Just gorgeous! Congratulations on 1000 posts!

Mary said...

Congrats on 1000 posts! When I read about picking my all time favorite card made by you, I immediately knew which one, I just had to go waaay back and find it. It was June 1, 2008, So quick, so easy, so pretty. I loved all the cards you made with the Stamp It Australia paper, which I desperately tried to find in my local craft stores only to find they had never heard of it!

Thanks for the opportunity to enter your contest.

Charmaine Stack said...

Wow - 1000 posts. Way to go! You are a blogging dynamo! Hard to pick a favourite card from so many posts, but I really like your March 26 Live Your Bliss card.

Chookarooni said...

Again congrats on 1000 posts

Julie Mutch said...

Beautiful card, Nancy! Love your choice of papers! :)

Congrats on 1000 posts - You Go, Girl! :) I like all your cards, but I think my all-time fav is your all-white card. It was just gorgeous! I have to try one, one of these days.

Hope you're enjoying some nicer weather these days. It's finally starting to warm up again nicely here on the east coast. We had a gorgeous day yesterday of +27C! WooHoo! :)

Take care!

Congratulations Nancy on your 1,000th. You are an inspiration to all of us. My favourites are the simple cards - you make them look so stylish. My latest favourite is the blue Mojo 15 done under Tracy's Christmas Card Challenge. It has a stunning effect.
