Black and White Birthday and Blog-aversary

Black and White....I love Black and White Cards
A fun day today cropping with Virginia and Rita while there  I finished a birthday card for a very special person.  The birthday isn't for awhile, but I wanted to have it finished so I could move on to Christmas and finishing my album. 

The designer papers are from My Mind's Eye, dated 2009, the ribbon on the right was on a birthday gift from my son, the bird cage is a Spellbinder die, that I cut on black card stock and then glittered with Art Institute #131 Black Hole Hologram glitter as is the Elegant Scrollwork die from Memory you see it?  The silver metal embellishments are Teresa Collins, the flowers are from Karen, as is the black butterfly.  The silver ghost leaves are from Black Ink Decorative Accents, I have no idea where I got them, or how long I've had them, and the white feather in the cage ....yet another that I don't know where it was purchased.  I guess that's another one of those things you can't live without and several years later you prove yourself right! 
I'm copying the blog candy post until it's, here it is....yet again!

.....and candy! Don't forget you can enter more than once, but only one time per post. Yesterday I shopped til I dropped and that bag now has 24 items in it.....only 5 more items to add. Some of the items I had to buy 2...why, cause I want to keep one for me.... 

A reminder check the blog post 8/15/2012: My blog-aversary is coming up in September. I usually remember it, right after it's gone by. But this year I'm planning ahead and I want to celebrate by gifting some lucky person a bag of goodies. What's in the bag? I have no idea, why? Because every day something new goes inside. If my math serves me....there should be 29 items in the bag. And....I'll ship, all you gals across the could win! Here's the way to win....Follow me! ....and then leave a comment. What if you already follow me? Well, then just leave a comment. What if you don't have a blog page.... well, then leave a comment with your first name and last initial. might win too! Every time you comment you will have your name put into the drawing. Only one comment per post please....Here's the bag I'll be putting the goodies into.....If you look closely, there is already a treat inside.....

Note: Before I receive questions about why does blogspot list me as a member since July of 2008 and I'm claiming September 12 of 2009. I signed up for blogspot in July of '08, and then really didn't do much of anything until September of '09. So, I've picked my blog-aversary as of the September date, when I started counting visits on Clustermap. that that is addressed.....

Those of you who know me, know I don't (usually) post every day, but every day something will be going into the bag.....September 11th is the last day to Follow and/or comment... Off I go, I've got shopping to do! When I announce the winner, you will have 24 hours to claim your prize. If you don't....I'll draw another name.
I found something fun to put into the bag....want to see it? peeking! I did take the names of those who are following my blog and entered them into the drawing....

Hugs to all,
Mary Mac AKA: Glitter Grammy


  1. Love your black and white card! It is elegantly gorgeous! I have the issue regarding blog dates too. Google has mine being in July 2008 but I didn't blog a single line until December 2008. I think I created the blog in July...can't remember!
    Didn't bother to leave the house today. Was going to go shopping but...Have a great day see you Wednesday. Vickie

  2. This is such a beautiful card Mary, it's glamourous, elegant and so so gorgeous! That birdcage is fabulous, I've been looking for a nice one, must try and find that one somewhere! I love the monochrome and sparkles too!
