Winner Announcement: TLC Bloghop
I've just been down the rabbit hole and have come back up with the winners of the special sentiment set I created for the recent Alice in Wonderland themed bloghop sponsored by Create with TLC.  

I was absolutely tickled pink with the number of comments I received--46 of them!  The highest number of comments ever on one post if I remember correctly!!!

Several people played along for their chance to win.  We'll start with the winners of the sentiment set.

There were two different ways to win or earn it.  

First up, I offered to give away the set for free to anyone who provided me with proof of purchase of the special Bloghop set that Paulette sold over at TLC during the duration of the hop.  Two people took advantage of this; so, congrats to both Anne M. and Margaret A. who have already received their set.

Next up, anyone who left a comment telling me which Alice in Wonderland Character they related most to and why, was eligible to win a copy of the set.  I never stated how many sets were available to win, I merely stated that the more people who commented, the more sets I would give away.  Well, a total of 17 people let me know who they identified with. 
  • 7 people related to Alice.
  • 4 people related to the White Rabbit.
  • 3 people related to the Mad Hatter.
  • 2 people related to the Cheshire Cat.
  • 1 person related to the March Hare.
  • 1 person related to the Queen of Hearts.
  • 1 person related to three different characters:  the White Rabbit, the Mad Hater and the Cheshire Cat!
It was such fun to read everyone's reasoning as to why they related to the specific character they chose.  If you want to check out some of the responses, click HERE and scroll down to the comment section.  Their replies will definitely put a smile on your face if you are a fan of Alice in Wonderland.

I have decided I am going to give out a total of six different sets! The first four sets were chosen randomly (using  Congrats to:

Lynne aka Her Craftiness
TangledBlueRose (Kim)
Tigger a(r)t work

Then I decided to give away a set to the person whose comment I enjoyed the most.  Problem was, choosing only one was much more difficult than I thought it was going to be.  The comments left were are wonderful.  In the end, I couldn't come up with just one, so there are two particular comments that put an extra smile on my face.

So, congrats to:
Debi B.
Maureen J. Scott

I'm going to share those comments here.  Hopefully they will put a smile on your face as well.

The first one is from Debi B who said:
Fabulous card and lots of info in this post. Thank you for all that work! I think I relate to Alice when she took the pill to make her small. At 4'10" and shrinking, there has been many a time I wished I had the antidote pill! Thanks for the banner. I may be back to work on those quotes.

Given that I am only 5' myself, that my mom and aunt are 4' 11" and that my grandmother was about 4' 8", I can definitely relate to all of us wanting an antidote pill often during our lives!     

The second one is from Maureen J. Scott  who said: 
Oh Fabulous Lisa! I reckon, right now, at this time of the month, I'm a bit like the Queen of Hearts - 'all ways here are my ways', and if you don't do it my way... off with your head! Or, bed without any supper in the case of these crazy kids of mine! hahaha

I just got this vision of Maureen running around shouting 'off with your heads' to her wayward children and ended up with a fit of the giggles.

Well, I think that should about cover it!  Thank you so much to everyone who participated.  I hope that I'll see you all play again in a future giveaway.

I'll leave off with one of my favourite quotes from Alice in Wonderland:

“Have I gone mad? I'm afraid so.
You're entirely Bonkers.
But I will tell you a secret,
All the best people are.”

Until next time,
