I wear a certain necklace around my neck each day.
Recently I have been wearing two necklaces thanks to her, but that is a story for another day
“Is it Lisa Leonard?” I get asked.
“Oh right, its The Vintage Pearl” they always reply.
My necklace, one that I put around my neck each day, even on days in which it feels like a weight due to my fibromyalgia was lovingly made by my friend Melissa of Cascade Custom Crafts.
She blames me for getting her into all of this.
I admit to only getting her started in scrapbooking.
If you have never seen my necklace, I would like to introduce you to her.
Why yes I said her, the only guy coming this close to my girls on a regular basis is my husband.
I know that your first thought is “Wow that is a beautiful necklace!” with a close second being “Why is it laying among those business cards?” with a possible third thought being “Hey look there’s my business card!”
Well friends, today I am happy to tell you that you can win a $25 credit to Melissa’s shop by participating in a little contest.
I swear it’s not hard and it should be fun.
See this photo?
These are the business cards that I collected from BlogHer, less one because my husband needed to write down a number and for whatever reason I let him use a business card out of my purse to do so,
you know so he wouldn’t write on his hand again because I am so nice and gracious like that.
All you have to do is guess how many business cards are in that pile and you can win yourself a necklace of your very own.
Note my necklace isn’t pictured because I designed it myself and truth be told that isn’t the ‘bling’ it came with I just recently switched it out because I spilled ice cream on my necklace…you know while it was around my neck. True Story
Let me give you two hints.
1. I didn’t really ask for anyone’s business card unless I was talking to them for a good while.
2. For me going to a conference with 2,399 of my closest friends I was seriously disappointed when I counted how many cards I actually got. It is sad and pathetic and I probably shouldn’t be allowed to exchange business cards at another conference ever.
Now for the details

~If no one picks the correct amount it will go to the person that was closest & if there are more than one of those that are equally far away from the unsaid number of cards I will randomly draw a name.
~The winner will have until Monday September 6, 2010 to contact me if not I will randomly draw a winner on Tuesday, September 7, 2010. So make sure your email is connected to your blogger account or you leave me a valid email in your comment.
FTC disclosure The original necklace was purchased by me (well techinally the husband as it was my mother’s day gift). I was not compensated in any way and the opinions expressed are solely my own except for the ones that I shared that others shared with me and I am pretty sure they weren’t paid for their opinions as well but I can’t be sure because people are tricky like that. Also I didn’t steal any of the business cards, not that I would steal business cards and if I did steal them I would probably steal way more of them so that the number would be higher, because FTC the number is sad and low
