Words, words, words …

… I’ve got words, and I have the statistics to prove it!  I’ve now written over 700 posts.

I remember telling DD, when she encouraged me to start writing a blog, that I didn’t think I would be able to think of enough to write about.  Ha!

Soooo, in honor of this milestone, I thought I would give away some of the results of my new “flavor of the month” hobby — making greeting cards from my photos.

These are some I’ve made to give away at our golf fun day in July.

So, if you would like to “throw your hat in” for the give-away, here’s how it will work.

Between now and midnight on Sunday, June 27, please leave a comment here, and I will randomly draw a winner on the 28th.

For that winner, I will make six cards (they are blank inside), with any combination of the following three pictures (all six of one picture — two of each of the pictures — three of two different pictures — you get the idea, whatever you want).

Orrrr,  if there is some other photo I have published (that doesn’t have people in it, please) that you would like made into cards, I could  do that.

Although I would make one exception to the “no people” rule because this one is me, and I don’t need anyone else’s permission.  I’ve made some get well cards to send out myself with this picture and words on the front.  I have no idea if that would be fun for any of you to send out, but I’m hoping I’ve given some sick people a laugh when I sent them this baby!  (You could write on the inside something like, “Cheer up!  You can’t possibly feel worse than she looks!”)

But whether you win greeting cards or not, those of you who have taken the time to read many of my 700 posts have my undying gratitude!  You are the secret ingredient in the “add humor and faith … mix well” batter that makes writing this blog fun for me.  Thank you.

    Congradulations with your “milestone” and IF I were to win…..I would love one picture to be of you after the dental appt!!!! Have a wonderful day 🙂

  2. lesley says:

    Well done Sandra!! That’s definately some feat!
    & if I was a lucky contender, it would have to be the picture with the duck…why? because ducks are my favourite birds, & they let you hold their ducklings…if you can catch them!

  3. Sandra says:

    Cheryl — I love you dearly old friend, but I’m a little skeptical of why you would want a card with the “dental drama” on it! I don’t know why but the word blackmail comes to mind. But, sorry — too late. Any damage it could have done has already been done when I published it here! 🙂

    Lesley — English ducks must be alot more friendly than Indiana ducks! I’ve never had the ducks around here let me get anywhere close to their ducklings!

  4. C. Beth says:

    I feel guilty entering when I STILL haven’t sent you your prize from my last blog contest! (But I haven’t forgotten!) 🙂 Your photography is beautiful!

  5. Sandra says:

    Beth — Do NOT put any pressure on yourself about the other thing. It will be a pleasant surprise whenever I received it! 🙂

  6. Amy O says:

    Congratulations on your milestone! If I would win, I love all three pictures, or should I say 4. Once again, a great idea to share in Greeting Cards. Like I have stated before, a coffee table book of your pictures is just around the corner.

  7. Sandra says:

    Thank you, so much Amy for being one of my most faithful encouragers through this blog. (If I ever do put together that book, you’ll be one of the first to receive a copy!) 🙂

  8. Barb Fischer says:

    Put me down for a copy of your coffee table book…
    autographed, pls.
    I love the pic of you ‘home from the dentist’!
    It kinda looks like a Norman Rockwell moment.

  9. Sandra says:

    Barb — more like Norman Rockwell ON something! 🙂

    Congratulations from one of the many lucky people that have had the great gift of your blog. I must say that it brings a smile to me each and everytime I come to read your blog and provides me with a sense of peace; like coming home. Your newest adventure of the cards is wonderful! For me I enjoy the sunrise/sunset pictures- they bring me a sense of awe.

    Thank you Sandra for your diligence in writing this blog.

  11. Sandra says:

    Thank YOU, Sleepless for being such a faithful, kind and supportive reader!

  12. Barb Fischer says:

    P.S.
    I agree with Sleepless….brings a smile, and a sense of peace.
    I ‘knew’ you in high school, but I feel like I ‘know’ you so much better now. Thanks for sharing yourself with us.

  13. Sandra says:

    Thanks so much, Barb. You are always so supportive. I appreciate it, old friend.

  14. […] comment here or on the original contest posted last Monday for this once in a lifetime opportunity! (said in my best Billy May’s […]

  15. mrs4444 says:

    Stop! You look great in that photo. Well, except for your cheek, haha. Count me in!

  16. Sandra says:

    Mrs4444 — It’s all relative, I guess. I’ve looked worse! 🙂

  17. 700 posts?!!! Wow! The cards are so lovely – throw my hat in the ring! Crossing my fingers and hoping to win! V.

  18. Sandra says:

    Thanks, V. 🙂

  19. Katharine says:

    I’ve enjoyed your posts too, Sandra, although I haven’t been around for all 700 of them. Thanks for sharing!

  20. 700? You passed me up about 300 ago. I’m really proud of you.

    That picture of you really sums you up…beautiful but willing to do anything for a laugh.

    I love you Mom.

  21. Sandra says:

    Jennifer — Has it ever occurred to you that maybe I’m not trying to be funny? That I’m deadly serious when you’re laughing? Now don’t you feel bad? No? 🙂

    I love you too, Babe. And I LOVE it when I can make you laugh.

  22. Julie says:

    Count me in Aunt Sandy! Those cards are absolutely beautiful! 🙂

  23. Hilary says:

    Congrats on reaching 700 posts, my friend. I look forward to the next 700 and way beyond.

  24. Sandra says:

    Hilary — Thanks for your faith in me! I don’t know if I have 700 more IN me! 🙂

  25. Sandra says:

    Julie — Thanks for playing along. 🙂

  26. Hope says:

    This is GREAT….yes, we do have lots in common. I LOVE making my photo cards (did I even mention those on my blogs?)…

    I’m always looking for new ideas…I don’t know that I’ll use ME..but I’ll find a good sub! LOL

    Great photos and the one of the duck with the swirling water is FABULOUS!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog(s).
    blessings
    HOPE
