Soooooooooooooo........... let's play a little game. 'Cause I feel like giving stamps away!

Here's what you do.

**NOTE!! If you're reading this via a feed or reader, you'll need to click over to my blog... if you clicked on a link from Facebook, you'll need to close the Networked Blogs frame first before you proceed.

  1. Scroll down the page until you see the "Archives" button in the right column (just above the mouse).
  2. Choose your birthday month from the archives of my posts from 2010, and from that month, pick out your favorite card. (You may want to right click on the date and open the new page in another tab or window, so you can come back easily to this post.)
  3. Click on the card's post title. Copy the URL of the post, and paste it below in the Inlinkz form. Be sure to leave your name and email address too, and continue to follow the instructions from Inlinkz so you can choose the picture of the card, etc. (If you can't figure it out, just leave your name, email and the link to your favorite card in the comment section - I'll pop it in the collection for you!)

I'll pick a random entry to receive this set of clear stamps from Impression Obsession!! Great images for Spring and Summer cards. You have until January 6th at midnight EST to participate. I'll announce the winner on Friday.

Good luck!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
P.S. This was my favorite card from last January! All stamps are from Impression Obsession.


  1. happy birthday Dina! I had a hard time choosing my favorite from November but this is what I picked:

    Didn't see anything to include a picture. Sorry if I'm just not computer smart enough!

  2. Lavonne, I put it in for you! Happy new year to you!

  3. Happy Birthday Dini and a very Happy New Year to you as well. I hope you have an extra special day and may the Lord bless you "extra good" in 2011!

    Your card selection from last Jan is just gorgeous! Thanks so much.

    Had to choose May 10 as it's my favorite but when I saw the date, it's also the date of my birthday - double wonderful! ;c)


  4. Well I messed up the picture gallery part, but I got the link in anyway. So...Happy Birthday!

  5. I just popped in to say Happy Birthday Dina and saw a fun way to win stamps ... I should have known .. you are so fun!!! I have picked my fav from December which was very hard to do! I hope you are having a fantastic day!!! and Happy New Year to you and your family too!

  6. Happy New Year and Happy Birthday - you do realize I love all your work, it is very hard to pick just one .... but I did.

  7. Happy Birthday, Dina! I wish for you a day spent doing just what you want to do.(:-)
    I live on an island in Florida where millions (not quite) of people ride bicycles. One day I will get mine out of the garage and join them! So the card I chose features a beautiful bike.


    Love the cardinal!
    I'm rather computer challenged, so hope you can do it for me!

  9. Happy Birthday Dina, and a Happy New Year too.
    I love your work and this is my favorite

    but it tells me this link is already picked.
    Have a wonderful day.

  10. Hauoli la Hanau and Hauoli Makahiki Hou (Happy Birthday and Happy New Years) to you from the islands! Hope you have a wonderful day filled with everything that makes you happy!

    I chose the card of the Halloween jar, your coloring is amazing! I just purchased a set of prismacolor pencils and your entire blog is so inspiring!

  11. Happy Birthday and Happy New Year! It was fun to scroll back through earlier posts to find the one I selected and posted. Gotta love acorns! Thanks for the chance to win a great prize. Anne, yourmainestamper

  12. Happy Birthday Dina! You deserve all of the best.

    I chose a card I fell in love with:

    The Vintage bicycle card stamped so beautifully on photo paper. Only you can pull that off. I would go through a box of photo paper before I could ever achieve anything decent, never coming close to this gorgeous card.


  14. Happy Birthday Dina!
    Best wishes to you!!!

  15. Happy Birthday to you! I hope you had an awesome day. Here's wishing you an awesome New Year too!

  16. Happy Birthday 2 U and Happy New Years as well.

    Love that stamp set; What a great giveaway.Thank U 4 the opportunity.
    I'm like some of the rest; I have to leave just the link to my choosen card and I must say, love the cardinal.


  17. Happy Belated Birthday Dina! Hope you had a lovely day. I remember this card...great card! What a nice way to celebrate your Birthday - sharing memories of our favorite cards with your blog buds! Thank you for the chance to win a pretty set of stamps.

  19. Dina! Happy Happy Birthday!!!! I hope you had a fabulous day!!!

  20. What a fun way to celebrate your birthday with all of us. Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with us all!

  21. Happy Birthday Dina!

    Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to celebrate with you. I picked the card that used the image Candy Jars from June 2010. I loved this image from the first moment I saw it, and imagined how many color combos it would work with that will put a smile on someones face. Who doesnt like candy?? LOL I would be thrilled to win these stamps!

    Happy Birthday again and I loaded my selection using Inlinkz.

    *Sending Birthday Hugs*

  22. Happy Birthday, Dina! I hope that you are enjoying your birthday weekend. Thank you for sharing your creativity with all of us.

    We appreciate you, and wish you the very best for the year ahead.

  23. "Happy 2011 and Happy Birthday!"
    My birthday is in June and I
    adore your "Vintage Bicycle"
    Card done with Impression
    Obsession...May you have many more
    happy and healthy birthdays!
    Many thanks, Cindi

  24. Wish you a very happy birthday (sorry I'm a day late) It was soo hard to pick one card..but I did narrow it down to the softness of this card...
    Sadly I'm unable to add it to inklinkz, since it say that link already exists!!
    I hope you can add it in for me,

    Thank you for such a fun trip down memory lane!!


  25. Couldn't resist adding my favorite to the list. However, if you pick my name, you can go ahead and pick another winner. I haven't done much stamping in a long time, so I'd rather give someone else the opportunity to win something from you. :-) I do all my stamping vicariously through you, anyway. hehe ;-D

  26. Dina: Not computer savy enough to leave the link, but my favorite card is from June 5, 2010. The post is "Enjoy a relaxing day" and it has a picture of my beach cruiser bike! Happy Birthday to you. Thank you for a chance to win a great set of stamps. My name is Terre.

  27. Happy Birthday to you! My birthday is March 30,
    and my favorite card in your March, 2010 blogs was the hummingbird easel card. It was great. The one on my birthday was great, but I like the hummingbird one best of all. You have my address I think. Also, a Happy New Year to you and your family. And thanks for the chance to win the lovely stamps.

  28. I chose the one for March 20
    since that is my B-Day! (I saw it is also your hubby's birthday).

  29. Just wanted to say Happy Birthday Miss Dina and Happy New Year too! Thanks for all the help and inspiration you have given.

    Best Wishes

  30. Happy Birthday!

    I picked the post you made on my birthday last year. Otherwise, I'd just post them all! LOL


  31. Just ran across your lovely blog. What caught my eye was that we are apparently birthday twins! So, I entered your favorite card contest. I love bicycling, hence I picked the great bicycle card from last Jan. Happy Birthday/New Year!

  32. Hi there,

    I hope that you had a wonderful birthday! Mine is in October. You had so many wonderful posts and cards in October, it was hard to choose. I love how you shared things about the local culture, and showed us different materials to stamp on, and different techniques to color our images in--amazing! Thank You! for sharing all that you do! I really appreciate it. I choose the little mouse snoozing in the poppy flower. House Mouse is another one of my favorites other than Impression Obsession! I am actually going to be taking a background stamping class with Mitra this weekend in MD. I see your use of the background stamps with your cards and I love it, I know she will be able to teach me a few tricks! Best wishes to you!

    Katie (#42 as of now, thank you for the chance to win!)
