600 FOLLOWER GIVE AWAY here at last!

My long awaited 600 Follower celebration is here at last.  A huge thank you to all my wonderful Followers (old and new), without all your visits and love you leave here, {Doing Life} would not have been so creatively motivated.  I have learnt so much from all of you, made some wonderful cyber friends (a few of whom I have met in real life) and there is never a dull moment in blog land having you around.  I still have to pinch myself to believe that I really have 637 Followers to be exact.



Lisa  has once again surprised me with this wonderful Badge (see above) which she has created for me.  Be sure to visit Lisa's inspirational blog and leave her some love.  Lisa is also the brain behind the new Path of Positivity Challenge.  So make sure to go and link your inspirational creations here.


And its no surprise then, that I have some wonderful candy here for not one, but 4 lucky Followers.  Four lucky Followers will each receive a $10 Gift Certificate from DigiStamps4Joy.  I have been on the DS4J's design team for a year now and am privileged to get to play with their gorgeous variety of digi stamps.  New digi's are launched every Sunday over at their shop - so make a note to pop in at the shop on Sundays for some retail therapy. DS4J now also has a reward system - so its even more fun to shop with them.  Also try your hand at entering their bi-weekly challenges over here - the Design Team look forward to seeing your entries.  Thank you so much Margy (the owner of DigiStamps4Joy) for sponsoring two of these lovely $10 gift certificates.




All you need to do to stand a chance to win one of these FOUR $10 Gift Certificates is:
  1. Become a FOLLOWER  with GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT, scroll down a bit to find it in my side bar.  Click on 'Join this Site'- please only become a Follower if you have an active blog and regularly post your creative work on it AND love what you see here.
  2. Link your NAME to MR LINKY below.
  3. Leave me a COMMENT on my latest post below letting me know that you are a Follower and have entered your name with Mr Linky here - and of course you are welcome to leave any other kind of love.

Wishing you all the best of luck.

I was doing my dt rounds for Chalk N Stock and used random.org to pick the winner, which was you. :) Then you left me a message about your 600 follower give away and finally I was joining a challenge today and say you had linked up to it so I went to see what you where up to and decided to join the fun. For living so many miles from each other, we keep bumping into each other. :)
