2000th post... and a give away!

TGIF!

So as I've been posting this past week I noticed that I was creeping up on post number 2,000... that is quite the milestone! That's two thousand cards made and shared right here on the ol' blog. And look who I got just in time to help me celebrate, a new Wild Sprout named Hanna! Hanna is the Super Secret Stamp Club stamp for August and I was thrilled to finally see a Wild Sprout joining the Farm. I'm such a fan of the Sprouts, always have been, and Hanna is just the cutest! As I colored her up she was looking like she could be a fellow cat lover so I cut this panel from the Doodlebug Kitten Smitten paper to create an instant background. Now Hanna has a beautiful pink home and three little feline friends to keep her smiling. 



Now I couldn't let this 2,000th post pass without a little giveaway to celebrate and thank all of you for making A Thousand Sheets of Paper one of your online stops. Since I've been cleaning and organizing the crafty room lately I've started to fill a little box full of stamps, 6x6 sheets of paper and there will be even more goodies thrown in as well. This will go to one lucky person you comments on this post by next Thursday telling me how long you've been following, doesn't matter if it has been years, months or even days, everyone is eligible to win. Then I will let random generator pick a winner and announce it on Friday, August 19th.

Again, thank you for sticking with me through 2,000 posts it truly means the world to me!  :)

Congratulations on 2000 posts, that's amazing! No clue how long I've been following. I remember checking your posts during my morning break at work and I've been home with the kids since August 2010. So it's been years and years.

Congratulations! What a milestone! I haven't the foggiest how long I've been stalking your blog... but awhile lol. I love your colouring, love your creations and you're sharing AND love that you list your Copic Colours (and other product) used so I can grow with my art as well. Thank you.

Fantastic! Two thousand post...wow. That is amazing. I've been following you forever and I don't post often but always stop by. One of things that I love about your blog is that you always share the process and what you used to create it. Listing Copic's is what keeps me coming. Hope to be here celebrating when you reach 4,000!

Congrats on 2000! I have your blog as a 'favorite' and have enjoyed your creations for several years-- at least back to 2012. Just realized I never officially 'followed'... so I started following today- but you have been inspiring me for a loooong time!!!

Yay! Thank you so much and congratulations! I couldn't even tell you how long I've followed but at least a couple of years!

Tress said...

Congratulations Amy! Yours was the first card blog I discovered online. It has been a joy to view your creations over these 4+ years! And still keeping my fingers crossed that you will one day again share your drawing talents with us...missing those fabulous fairies and sprites.

Kathleen said...

2000 posts is a big milestone-Congratulations! I found your blog sometime last fall through Pinterest and have followed you since then. I love your creative use of stamps and the different stamp companies you've introduced me to with your cards.

Congrats on your 2000 post! I found your Youtube channel before discovered your post. Your coloring is awesome and enjoyed your cards.

Hello Amy!
I have been following your blog for years now. I don't comment as much as I used to, because I use a feed reader to read your blog and I do not always click through to leave a comment, especially when I'm reading you from my phone, but rest assured I never miss a post from you!
Keep making great cards!

Marianne said...

Congrats on reaching this milestone, Amy!
I've been following you for about 5 years now. I think you were one of the first crafters I started following after starting my own blog back in 2011.

Amy, congratulation for your 2000 blog post! I've found your blog some years ago (don't remember how many.. maybe 5) and since then I check your blog daily. I've been in panic when you stopped blogging for months..and even then constantly checking and hoping for a new post. I'm a silent blog follower but a regular one. Your creativity is unique : in drawing and coloring and I'm always impressed but your talent in creating scenes. Hoping you'll get back in drawing stamps too.. My Sweet November needs new friends : )
Hugs, Renata.

Oh Wow, 2000 post. Congratulations, That's Amazing! I'm really not sure how long I have been following you.I think I've been blogging for around 4 years. So I would say at least a few years now. I Love seeing your creations. One of my favorite things are seeing your creations that you have colored and sharing what markers that you have used. I am (trying) to get started. So that I can start coloring myself. I now have two Greeting Farm Stamps. So Sweet of you to have this wonderful Giveaway. Thanks for the chance.
