For those who subscribe through Google Reader or Bloglines or some other blog organizer type thingie – if you can email me proof of your subscription, I’ll put your name in this drawing too. **ETA** - if your blog reader thingie has an "email this post" option, just email me one of my posts....

Prize #25 new unmounted verse stamps from My Heart Stamps for You, plus a handmade “Mama Dini” original card. :) For this prize – leave a comment on this post, with your answer to the following question – how many thank you stamps do you think I have?

    Thanks for a chance.

    2. 32
    3. I'd love to have a watermark too :)

  3. I am a google subscriber but don't know how to show you proof. I may be a feed biz sub too as rely on google so delete the feed biz updates when I get them.
    I bet you have lots of thank you stamps and expressions so I will guess 30.
    As for the watermark, I wouldn't know what to do with it if I won it, so if you choose me, you are welcome to give it to someone else. I am not very computer literate.
    I have been reading your blog for as long as I knew about blogs and love every post. You are full of talent. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Of course I have to get involved if there is fun! A celebration!!! Loved your work from the 1st time I saw it on SCS!!!

    Thank You stamps- I am going to guess- say 17 (my husband picked that number). You mean you have your stamps so well organized that you actually know how many you have??? haha not in my house!!!

    So, happy anniversary or birthday- lets do both!!!

  31. My guess for how many thank you stamps you have is 18. I have been enjoyed your blog. I love your art and inspiration!

  32. My guess is 31 thank you stamps.

  33. Happy, happy blog birthday!

    I'll guess that you have maybe 23 thank you stamps.

    Love your creations!

  34. Hi Dina, That's an easy question. Back on July 7 you were orgainizing your Thank you stamps and you had 25 unmounted ones!! Then, you also have some that go in "other categories" like "thank you beary much". So 25 + about 7 more would be about 32. I am hoping that you haven't bought a whole lot more since then.

    Happy Blogday !!!
