100% Sweet -- for Pinque Peacock

It's Wednesday, and Independence Day is so close, the fireworks having been going off every night in anticipation in our little town.  I'm posting today for Pinque Peacock, and I've combined two big events happening right now -- strawberry season, and the patriotic 4th of July:

Yes, this is a red, white, and blue strawberry.  Stand up and salute!
Looks kinda yummy, though, with that Pinque Peacock 3/4 inch red fabric covered button, doesn't it?  There's also some 3 Girl JAM ribbon from the Red, White, and Blue Bundle. This strawberry shaped card is a cutting file from The Cutting Cafe, and so is the "100% Sweet" tag.

I have a giveaway going on, celebrating several events: I wrote my 500th blog post last week, I just reached 400 followers on my blog, and I have over 100 "likes" on my Facebook page, Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  To celebrate all those things,  I'm having a giveaway:  I have some Timeless Twine, some 3 Girl JAM ribbon, a Unity stamp set, a Close To My Heart stamp set, some Pinque Peacock embellishments, a 6x6 paper pad, and various embellishments that I need a home for. I also have two generous sponsors:  DigiStamps4Joy is giving a $10 gift certificate to the store, and The Cutting Cafe is offering any 3 sets.  WOW! If you'd like to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on any of my blog posts between now and July 6.  I'll draw a winner on my birthday.  It's my day, and you get the present!  I'd also love it if you "like" my Facebook page and follow my blog, if you don't already. 
Do you have big plans for the 4th?  It's a huge event here in my little town -- parade, family picnic, waterski show, and it all ends with a big fireworks display.  Woohoo! Have a fun, safe, 100% SWEET 4th of July, my American friends!
