May Giveaway is Here! Woo Hoo! Get ya some!

***Time's up! This contest is now closed***
It's that time again...yes, the Monthly Giveaway is here! And only two weeks into the month! Don't you think I'm doing so much better? (Don't answer that.)

I know how much I personally love this store, so I thought to myself, "Self...why not give a gift card for this store away?"

So that's what I'm doing - what's the store, you ask? Lookie here:



target gift card

Why in the world $33? Because I can. That's why. I like odd numbers - why be normal when you can have more fun being the opposite of normal?

The Fine Print:

~The contest begins today and ends Saturday 5/31 at 12pm CMT.

~One entry per person, please.

~You do not have to have a blog to enter - just be sure to leave me your contact information in the comments. If you do not leave contact information and there is no email on your blog I will draw someone else (if you want another entry, just grab the little birdy photo from above and paste it somewhere on your blog, but tell me in comments you've done it!)

~No Anonymous comments will be entered for obvious reasons.

~Random Number generator will choose the winner.

Good luck. And may the force be with you. I don't know why I said that. It just felt right.

Robin said...

How much do I LURVE your randomness? (a LOT!) HA--because "I can" (love that, too).

I'm working on my post for tomorrow, and I decided to pop over and tell you thanks for initiating this; it's a "good" thing...and it's one of the GREAT things about blogging (helping others, affecting change).

Oooo and I think I added you to my Twitter thingy...but now I can't get Twitter to load, so maybe I didn't. Go figure.

Count me in for this drawing, too...Tarzjay and me are bff! :)

Thanks!

Nice giveaway!

Jill @ Live, Laugh, Blog said...

Ohhh. I love Target.
Plus, I so love your designs and if I ever have just extra money for a design, youre my girl.
Seriously. I've asked the husband several times. But apparently redesigning my blog is not in our budget. But it should be.

I'm with you on the odd number thing, and I do it for many reasons. I like to hassle the HOA ~ so I always make my check a different "odd number" of cents -- this time $XXX.08 ~~ 8 because 8 is a chinese lucky number :)

Always Been Different said...

Target!! YEAH! Hope my number comes up this time :-)

penguinsandladybugs said...

I love Target...it is such a fun store just to walk through and you can get a Starbucks to sip on while you walk through :-) (not at all Targets, I suppose, but you can at my Target). I have a birdie permanently on my blog...does that count?

Elaine A. said...

Obviously we know I love Target too! : ) Thanks for the chance Karen!

katy said...

Love your sense of humor! I think it must go along with the name. I crack myself up sometimes. Target is my favorite discount store.

BlapherMJ said...

I've recently started reading your blog and really enjoy it. 3 seems to be my lucky number, so I'm going for it! Thanks!

bren j. said...

Now that's some smart thinking - $33 would be enough to cover the tax on a $30 item. Clever!

That key lime pie looks delicious, by the way! I wish I had some limes!

Krista said...

This will buy my son some new summer clothes... I'm not used to having to buy new clothes every season!

blueviolet said...

$33, that's hilarious. I can really appreciate that silly amount because that's something my husband would do just for fun. I'm more linear but he's outside the box so he keeps me loose. Great giveaway.
