Prize Draws for LNS Fall Treasure Hunt

October 28th is finally here!  What's so special about that date?  Well today was the official draw date for the Late Night Stampers Fall Treasure Hunt. We didn't have as many entries as we thought we might, but those of you who did participate had fun.  We know because your comments were fantastic. Thank you!

So without further ado here are the winners for each country:

Deb Smart the Canadian prize coordinator, reports there were only 13 entries for the Canadian prize. 

Her son assisted with the draw and the winner was Sheri Lee of South Surrey, British Columbia.  Sheri, who happens to be one of my down line was so excited when I gave her the news that she'd won the $50 in Stampin' Up! Product, responded:

Carolyn Bennett the USA prize coordinator reports there were a total of 251 entries for the US drawing! She used Random.Org to pick a random number that was assigned to each entry and the winner was....

#188 - Lisa Eisner 

Congrats Lisa on winning the US prize package of $117 in Stampin' Up! product.  

United Kingdom 
Sadly there weren't any entries for the LNS Fall Treasure Hunt in the United Kingdom.  We're hoping that this will change when the next blog hunt is held in the Spring of 2014. 

Follow Up:

A big thank you to all the LNS Treasure hunt blog participants who donated money for the prizes in Canada and the US and posted clues and updates on your blogs.  You know who you are, and your full participation in this blog hunt is greatly appreciated.  

Even though this blog hunt has drawn to a successful end, I'll be leaving the list of LNS blog links on my site and encourage you to continue to check out these sites as there are lots of really cool tips, projects and ideas on these blogs.  I know I'll be returning to some of my favs just to see what's new.

Happy Stamping Everyone!

August 20th, 2013 - Let the Games Begin!!!!

This Treasure Hunt blog hop begins today.  This blog hop will take you across 3 countries - the US, UK and Canada.  Each country is offering a Stampin' Up Product prize package to the person who submits a list with ALL 50 correct clues written on it.  attached to the blogs you visit.  

Prizes will differ in each country and you will only win a prize for the country you live in. So when you're ready, submit your clue lists to someone who resides in your own country.  For example I'm Canadian so anyone living in Canada who completes their clue list could submit to me, and I'll make sure you get entered into the Canadian Prize draw!

Here's How To Play:
☻ Get yourself a cup of coffee or drink of your choice, settle in and have fun!

☻ Visit each of the blogs listed below this post  (leave a comment it will be appreciated, and it might be rewarded!)

☻ Look for the clue.  When you find it write down the clue and the name of the blog you found it on.

☻ Once you've collected 50 clues, email your list of clues and blog owners to  ME at pennyhanuszak@telus.net 

☻ You have from Tuesday August 20th to Friday October 25th 2013 to collect 50 clues and email them to me, to be entered into the contest.  The contest closes on Friday Oct. 25th at midnight PST.  

The list of demos will grow over the next few weeks, so although their aren't 50 on the list today, there definitely will be in the next little while.  So, you'll have to come back and visit again until your list is complete.  As I update my list I will add the new names in blue ink, so you can tell they are new.

This Treasure Hunt blog hop will take you across 3 countries:  the US, the UK and Canada.  Each country will be offering a prize for the person who gets ALL 50 clues attached to the blogs you visit.  (please note prizes will differ in each country and you will only win a prize for the country you reside in).

 Here's my Clue!  
For my product clue I chose the Big Shot machine, simply because I couldn't make the cards I do without it. From the moment I bought my Big Shot a whole new world of excitement opened up for me. 

Big Shot Die-Cut Machine     113439
Price: $122.95

  • With the Big Shot machine, you can create die cuts with any of our exclusive Stampin' Up! dies—or any Sizzix die. 
  • With the Big Shot you can create beautiful embossed backgrounds, that make your creations come to life.  
  • The Big Shot machine comes with Standard Cutting Pads and a multipurpose platform so you can start cutting immediately. 
  • In the Fall you'll be able to order the new multipurpose platform that has a magnetized base.   This is an awesome add-on for working with Thinlet and Framelit dies.
  • From crafting to quilting and everything in between, the Big Shot is a big deal!
Special Offer:

Anyone ordering a Big Shot Machine from me during the month of August will receive two free embossing folders of their choice.  To qualify for my promotion, you must place your on-line order by noon Pacific Time on August 31st, 2013.
