I'm back with prizes!

Hello my sweet followers,

I am still in the wheelchair, my right ankle is almost completly healed (have to go to physical therapy to work on it) the left ankle, the one I had surgery on is looking really good.  I hope when I see the doctor tomorrow she will let me get out of this wheelchair and on to a walker. How have you been?  How was your summer?

Today I would like to show you a card that I made for a teenager I know who has mononucleosis. (he had a really good summer....)

I really like this, it is from Lori Whitlock, it was quick to put together  and I think it is perfect for a teenage boy.

Okay, lets get on to the prizes!!!!

I am giving away two prizes, so there will be two winners.

1. You must be a follower of this blog.

2. Please post on your blog's sidebar or post on facebook. If you don't know how to add it to your sidebar, here is a quick tutorial. http://www.leahkalamakis.com/add-an-image-to-your-sidebar-make-it-clickable/

3.  If you have a day that you don't blog would you blog about this prize giveaway, and let me know that you did?

4.  International followers welcome (I consider the postage part of the prize)

5.  Please comment below, I will use Random.org to choose the winners.

Here are the prizes:


This is Teresa Collins "BeYoutiful" collection.  I chose this one because it has a quote that I love - "Life doesn't have to be Perfect to be Wonderful".  Isn't that true?  Took me a long time to learn that.  I have also included some Sweet Tart chipboard buttons with fruit and flowers.


Halloween!  You can never have enough Halloween am I right?  This is Bella BLVD collection "Spooktacular" I also included Rest In Pieces chipboard embellishments because I love the 3 pumpkins, they make me laugh.

Thank you again for all of the cards that you sent me!  Wow!  I think I have 13 or 15 cards! Whenever it felt like not being able to walk got to me, I would look at all the love sitting on my fireplace mantle and it would spur me to go on.  I will post a picture of all of them sometime in the coming days.
