Makin' It to the Mailbox Monday (MITTMM) #4

Welcome to our fourth week of  
Makin' it to the Mailbox Mondays!

I started this installment series to showcase the generosity that floods our Crafty Blogging Community.  So many times we receive a very generous prize from a dear friend and this is where we can shout out "THANK YOU" to those who really deserved it.

You are the people behind the Magic of Making My Day!!!

I want to take this opportunity to shout a huge

to all of you who have shown me your kindness and  your generosity.

Every week, on Monday, I will be posting a new installment of Makin' it to the Mailbox Mondays, where I will give a proper shout out to the generosity I have experienced first hand each and every week!  I hope you will take the opportunity to visit all of the wonderful and talented bloggers that I mention each week, to see their beautiful creations.  Those of you who know me, know I wouldn't steer you in the wrong direction.  There is so much to see and all of these fine ARTISTS are just a click away!!!

First up, I would like to offer a sincere THANK YOU to Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenges Blog.  They host weekly challenges every Wednesday that I LOVE to participate in on a regular basis.  I was selected the winner for Challenge #10 ~ Diecuts and/or Punches.  I won a $15.00 gift certificate to Whimsy Stamps.  If you are not familiar with Whimsy Stamps, the store is a MUST SEE.  Their artists are phenomenal.  Their challenge blog DT is exceptionally talented, too.  When I first found out that I was chosen as the winner, despite the love I have for all of their designs, I opted to have them make me a custom ordered stamp for my hubby.  He had been needing a stamp to help him with his paperwork for his job.  They were so helpful and on target with what we wanted.  It was a delightful experience to work with them and he loves his stamp.
THANK YOU to Denise and her team for adding the special little rubber stamp in the package.  That really made me smile!!!  I love springtime and this is one of my favorite sayings.  It will definitely get some use.

My next THANK YOU goes out to Heather Flaherty at Paper Crafters Anonymous.  She posted that she had some cartridges for sale  a short while ago and I jumped at the chance to purchase Flower Shoppe.  I had looked all over and everywhere I looked didn't have it available.  So THANK YOU Heather for helping make a wish come true.  Also, the shipping was super fast!!   But Heather must not have thought it was fast enough...because she offered an awesome gift for the delay...
A set of {ippity} Stamps~Thanks for all Things by Unity Stamps.  Heather is one of 50 Unity Endorsed {ippity} Chicks.  So if you are interested in purchasing any Unity Stamps from Heather, be sure to stop HERE . THANKS Heather.

I have a new found love for {ippity} as you may recall from MITTMM #3 where I shared the Ippity Stamps I won and the set I purchased.  I have since found several Ippity and Unity blogs that I can enter challenges using my new stamps. 

For my next shout out, I am sharing how delighted I was when I went to my email this weekend and saw I had been contacted by my Blend, Beckie Woodall at Just B Creative Crazy.  She and I hit it off from the first time we connected in BlogLand.  She is wonderfully talented and super sweet.  Not too mention, she really makes me laugh.  When I opened my email, I realized she had sent me a "Just Because you are a Wonderful Blog Buddy" gift certificate to Sweet n Sassy Stamps.  How sweet is that?  

And that opened my eyes to a whole new challenge blog through Sweet n Sassy, too. 

Now I have to shout out a sincere THANK YOU to Beckie.   If you stop by to visit Beckie's blog, she is having a wonderful giveaway when she reaches 125 followers (she is almost there).  Be sure to let her know that Jessica sent you!
Grand Prize

Runner Up Prize for the most referrals
 As you may recall from MITTMM #2, I had shared that I won a $20 Gift Certificate to Michaels during the 1000 Member Party at The Outlawz.  Now I am sharing the wonderful LOT of goodies I purchased with it...
I was able to purchase 4 packages of Recollections Card Stock (8 1/2 x 11) for $12.00
Some EK success Sticko guitar stickers at 40% off (coupon) for $1.19
One Studio G stamp pad in baby teal blue for $1.00
Recollections Sticky Squares for $2.99
and a new ek success flower & flourish edger punch at 40% off (coupon) for $5.99
I did go over the $20 a little, but I had to get some goodies to be offered as blog candy in the future too  (those aren't shown in the picture because that will be a surprise...he he he)

I was also excited to be able to purchase a Cricut Cartridge I have been wanting for a long time...

I hope that if I have inadvertently left anyone out of this gracious THANK YOU, that you all know you are all included in my thoughts, past and present.  Please, if you wish for me to do a shout out to you in a future Makin' it to the Mailbox Monday, don't hesitate to remind me of a prize you sent my way, and I will do my best to give you the credit you so rightfully deserve!!!

Also, if you would like to show off your own winnings, just title your post Makin' it to the Mailbox Monday and if I am your follower, I will gladly stop by to read it once I see it at my dashboard.  Or, if you'd like, you can leave a link with your comment below.  I would love to see the happiness that greets others in their Monday Mailboxes :O)


Happy Crafting and Until Next Time
