August 2017 Birthday Celebration and New Release Blog Hop Winners

Hello Everyone!

Thank you so much for joining in the August Birthday and New Release Celebration Blog Hop!    We loved reading all your comments and hopefully you had fun counting gumdrops.

The random winner of the blog hop and an $80.00 YNS Store gift certificate is Celeste Marie Goff who left this comment on the YNS Blog Hop Post:

Congrats and 10 packages of gumdrops goes to Terri Alcancia who counted the correct # of gumdrops…53!!!   There were 2 correct answers, so we let random org decide between the 2 correct answers – some of those gumdrops were sneaky.

There was trouble opening a blog on the hop, and did I mention that some of those gumdrops were deceptive?   So, guess what?!…we are giving away a second gumdrop prize pack for one random person among those who left a guess!!!   The random winner is Angela W!

Congratulations to all our winners!  Please contact Karen via the contact link at the bottom of the site to claim your prize.

The party is still going strong, our DT Dare is going on right now with a chance to win a stamp set of your choice.   Check out the DT Dare post found HERE and leave a comment to be entered in the contest.
