Thanks to Sponsors & Master List of Giveaways {NOW CLOSED}!

(This post is part of my Onwards and Upwards Blog Event)

I want to say a big, big thank you to the lovely people who offered prizes for the sponsored giveaways. I buy the prizes for the grand giveaway, blog hop, and challenges out of my own pocket, but I can’t afford any more. So it’s fabulous that these shops (and a band) are helping to make this weekend super fun! Thank you!

Thank You Stars Card by Jennifer Grace

I tried something new with this classy, starry, card – by making the sky white and the stars black and pink. And the sky is twinkly but the stars are matte. Turning things around like this is a fun way to make something stand out! Just think of the other ‘upwards’ possibilities – a blue moon on a yellow sky? A sunset-coloured hot-air balloon on a black sky? Blue clouds on a grey sky? I’m going to try these out!

Here’s a list of all the giveaways from this weekend, both my own and the sponsored giveaways. Make sure you’ve entered them all by tomorrow night (Monday the 13th of May) at 10.59pm BST!
