One World One Heart

Hi Everyone!!!

Welcome to my blog and the 5th One World One Heart blogging event.  This is my 3rd year participating in OWOH.  It is so much fun visiting so many blogs (over 700 at the present) and 'meeting' so many people from around the entire world.  

A little about myself. My name is Char and I am married, have two grown sons and three granddaughters.  We  are 'owned' by an Australian Shepherd, Annie and three cats Little Guy, Freckles and Tinker....hence the name of my blog....PawsN2Stamp.

I love to stamp, do papercrafting, crochet, knit, read, visit with friends and travel either 'virtually' or for real.  I am always visiting the Amtrak or MapQuest site and planning trips even if I never actually get to do them. My dream is to go to Australia some day.  So, you can see how much fun visiting all these other bloggers is for me!  I get a glimpse of where they live and what they do.

And, now for my giveaway.  Since I am into paper crafting and have 3 cats....I decided to give away 5 packages of 'cat' embellishments.  Included are metal charms, bubble stickers, dimensional tags, Rub ons and a frame pack.

All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog.  The rules say that you must have a blog to participate.  Also, please leave a way for me to contact you in your comment. I will be drawing a winner on February 17th.

Click here to go to OneWorldOneHeart and see all the other blogs that are participating and most of all HAVE FUN as you meet so many wonderful people along the way.

  3. Hi Char,

    How nice to meet you! :)

    Scrapbooking items for cat photos? Can you possibly read my mind? Just lately I thought how lovely it would be to collect the best photos of my late cat and put them together in a scrapbook. Of course, your door prize would be perfect for that, so I definitely cross my fingers now.

  85. Hello! Greetings from Canada! :)

    Oh cool door prizes! Quite generous! It is really hard finding cat related stuff for scrapbooking out here! I find dog stuff all the time but never for cats. Drives me crazy as now more people own cats than dogs.

    I'm going to be starting another cat scrapbook soon (already did my first this past fall, fun! I had to make most of the cat embellishments myself as they were lacking in stores) so these would be just purrfect!

    Please add my name to the draw!
