Giveaways? I love giveaways!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

Sorry folks! But this giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Julie D! If she doesn't get back to me by Monday at midnight, I'll pick another winner. Get back to me Julie!

Some of the blogs I've been reading are doing these fun giveaways, so I thought I'd jump in! This is my first giveaway ever and I have to say, I'm pretty excited about it! So, what can you win? I thought you might ask. I will be giving away the following:

36 adorable scratch and sniff Valentine cards. What kid doesn't love scratch and sniff? And to make it even better, they smell like chocolate! Mmmm... And for Mom (or Dad if he can wrestle it away from Mom), a Hershey's Giant Bar.

With all this chocolatey goodness, maybe I should enter! Okay, maybe not. Wondering how to enter? It's easy! Each of the following will get you an entry:

1. Leave a comment on this post. Doesn't sound too difficult, does it?

2. Totally for my amusement, leave your favorite CLEAN joke in that post. Inappropriate posts will be null and void - hey, this is a PG blog!

3. Subscribe to my blog and make a note of it in the post. It's the gift that keeps on giving!

4. Sign up as a follower on my blog and make a note of it in the post. Just don't follow me on the road because that's a sure way to get lost.

Oh, I should also mention that you should leave your email address so I can notify you if you've won. And you want to win, don't you? Also, this is open to US addresses only - sorry! Entries will be accepted until Saturday, January 31 at midnight Pacific Time. Good luck!

Thanks for visiting! Feel free to come back often!

My favorite clean joke is
"Do you wanna hear a dirty joke?"
"A pig fell in the mud."
"Wanna hear a clean joke?"
"He took a bath!"

Sorry, but this is all I could muster up. BTW, I don't know any dirty jokes, so I was glad that you put the "clean" qualifier on here. I would rather not learn any now!
