    I love to hear about what people think about CP inks. I’ve only heard good things and am surprised more people dont have them as their go to ink. I’m still learning about their products.. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

    Be still my heart! I am a newbie & I have fallen in LOVE with the Catherine Pooler spa dyes! In fact I have them in my cart right now. However, I’m just not sure I can afford them since I just purchased my Big Shot, papers, embossing(both heat & folders), stamp blocks, inks, etc…i decided I was jumping into stamping & card making feet + wallet first!
    This is an amazing giveaway, probably my fav so far(sshhhh!)! Lol Thanks so much for participating in the Blog Hop. I wish more than anything I could win but my chances are slim to NONE. I’ve never won a thing in my life but hey it doesn’t hurt to try! 🙂
    Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018!!

  183. Yeay! Happy New Year! Thanks so much for the chance to win — I haven’t tried any of the Catherine Pooler inks yet. I’m going to be stamping up a storm this year and posting my projects online to share! 🙂

  184. Heidi Rees says:

    Happy New Year! I look forward to seeing all your projects this year!

  185. Love your unique style. Looking forward to all of your new projects!!

    Hi Laurel,
    Glad you are well and back in the blog-o-sphere! I loved seeing some of your “best-of” 2017 cards. I really love your style–you always seem like you are having fun stamping, not obsessing over pesky details. I am in Canada, but if you draw my name, I’ll send YOU the postage! Buying CP inks in Canada costs $$ in customs and duty fees…

  203. Kilcha Goos says:

    I would absolutely love to win some CP inks after seeing some videos showcasing their amazing properties. Plus, your ampersand card and pad swiping card are putting me in the mood for some bright cheery inking fun!

  204. Carla vdM says:

    Just watched your ink swipe video and going to give this a try sometime, thank you for sharing.
    Some wonderfull cards you have made.
    No need to be sorry for not sending International, postage has gone up here in the Netherlands tooo since yesterday…it takes the fun out sending real cards for many people this way.
