Most bloggers dont have international giveways due to the terribly expensive shipping but my Blend [blogger friend] Jessica is so super generous that she encourages one and all!This is the 2nd time I won her blog giveaway and I actually felt guilty for winning thinking Jessica would be spending so much to ship from the US to India!! My hubby thinks both me and her are crazy !! Jessica sent me 6 wonderful stamps and can you believe it -a fantastic die with matching embossing folder!I went dizzy with excitement seeing this!!

I generally only enter giveaways of blogs I am already following or blogs I genuinely intend to follow and end up lucky quite often!Kelli had a 30 follower celebration giveaway and was so super sweet to sent gifts to all those who entered her giveaway--how amazingly generous is that! These are the mind blowing goodies she sent me all the way from the USA! There are laces,doilies,gorgeous buttons,pearls,tags, paper,stamps,stamp pads,vellum sentiments,butterfly embellishments and beautiful acrylic butterflies . Acquiring quality crafting goodies is a big challenge in India and would you believe me if I told you I actually skipped dinner to drool over these goodies!!
