I am 4

Yes it is true.....today Jane's Journal turns 4....where on earth have those 4 years gone! I have made so many wonderful blogging friendships and to celebrate I am having a giveaway with 2  rather special prizes as a thank you to everyone who visits me here. I thought something  very summery would be appropriate.
I gave a little sneak peek on Monday so now it is time to reveal all.


Yes I have wired up one of my very precious artisan made lampwork glass shells to made a pretty summer pendant. It has a handmade sterling silver fitting and a genuine sparkling Sworovski bicone crystal on top. It will come on an 18" sterling silver chain.

The 2nd person out of the hat will receive this summer themed bag charm which also has 2 very special unique artisan lampwork glass beads and several fun summer themed charms.

Everyone is welcome to enter my giveaway, I never have any restrictions as I know there are many people who follow by email or just pop by and silently read.  I will post world wide. 

To enter; just  leave a comment on this post, that you would like to be a winner, you will receive 1 entry.  However I really love to give my faithful blogging friends who visit me and comment on every single post (yes you all know who you all are and I thank you so much for always stopping by here, some from day 1 and some more recently) a few extra entries. So if you are a follower (you a welcome to join me today as well) you will get a 2nd entry. Finally if you put the photo at the top of this post showing the details of my giveaway  into your blog sidebar, or you mention my giveaway in a post, I will give you a 3rd entry.
Just come back and leave a separate comment for each of the entries you are entitled to. You have 2 weeks to do this in.

My giveaway will close at 4pm (BST) on 9 August. 

I will put all the entries into a hat and my Hb will pull out 2 winners names soon after the closing time. Please make sure you come back after 9 August to see if you are a lucky winner. 

I have been adding some summer themed jewellery to my Etsy shop and if you cannot wait until my bloggerversary ends these pieces are for sale.

This lovely beach themed pendant is available Here
And this pair of etched glass shell earrings here
Also a similar summer themed bag charm is available here

We are off today to the family BBQ to celebrate my daughter and SIL's 2nd wedding anniversary. My Hb and I had a lovely day celebrating our 33rd yesterday with a trip to London. We enjoyed our lunch in Brown's and then pottered around the shops.

My card today is another wedding/anniversary themed card, a gold and white creation. I enjoy making these, they have such a cool elegant feel. This is very welcome after the heat wave we have been enjoying...it was 32c+ most afternoons this week.
The sentiment is computer generated. I have embossed the background. The heart and butterflies are Cheery Lynn.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

ABC P is for Pearls 
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday  embossing I have used dry embossing of the background
Party Time Tuesday anything goes
Crafty Ribbons anything goes with ribbon
Cheery Lynn gold and/or silver I have a gold edge on my ribbon and silver pearls
Love to create bright and sunny
Fussy and Fancy words
Crafty Catz anything goes
We do doobadoo Celebrations

Thank you all  for making this a very special day for me. Here's to the next year of blogging friendship. No one quite realises how special blogging is unless they are a part of it.....and I love being a part of it.

Back soon,

Bye for now,

Jane x

  33. I am a follower. I think I started reading your blog when Teresa Kasner had a link to your blog on her blog last year! I've enjoyed your blog ever since, especially since you live in England. It's a fine place to be, as I did live there for 2 years....in the late 70s. Thanks for the giveaway! Lovely!
