Pizzazz Aplenty Giveaway!

Well, today I have something a bit different to share. I've discovered a new embellishment store (or it discovered me!) and I just want to help Judy, the owner spread the word about her sweet online shop and then I'm having a little giveaway at the end of this post, so read on, friends! It's called Pizzazz Aplenty. Ya'll may have noticed that I've been using a few of the products offered in her store here and there for some of my cards and I've listed them in the supplies section of my posts. This card here is one I did for The Cat's Pajamas using the Skating Bunny set and I just couldn't help myself from embellishing it up with the light green flatback pearls.

I'm telling ya, this is THE BEST place to find any kind of flatback pearls, rhinestones, laces, and hard-to-find trims ANYWHERE! The prices are so outstanding, you'll want one of each!! You just HAVE to check out the Pizzazz Aplenty store. Right now, it's set up like a blog, so the left side with the categories really helps in finding just what you need (all of it) and Judy and her mom can take your order by simply emailing her to her address listed at the top of the Pizzazz Aplenty blog. OH and did I mention the super-FAST shipping? Yippee-skippee!! I don't know about ya'll, but I want what I want and I want it NOW!

I asked Ms. Judy, owner of Pizzazz Aplenty, to send me a little background on herself and how the store got started:

I moved to Kokomo, Indiana when I sold my Gift Basket and Chocolates store in California, in 2005 I thought I was retiring, but just can't sit by and do nothing. When I was teaching cardmaking, I had trouble finding affordable embellishments to go on my cards. I soon figured if I was having trouble finding lots of different things for cards and scrapbooking, a lot of other people were as well. That's when this embellishment business began... and it has grown a lot in just a few months. My mom lives with me and helps a lot with this business. She may be up there in years, (she'll be 94 next month,) but she is in good health and very spry for her age. Most people think she is at least 10 years younger!

My goal is to find quality embellishments that are reasonably priced. I am constantly looking for the unusual embellishment... something that you won't find in Hobby Lobby, Michael's, etc. At Pizzazz Aplenty, you'll find simple packaging, quality merchandise, affordable prices.

Ok, isn't she the sweetest thing!? Because of her generosity shown to me, I want to give ya'll a little taste of some of her product line. I have a nice little goody bag of fun-ness to give away (I'll edit this post and get a picture up here in a little bit). I am just going to ask you to do 2 things in order to enter the drawing (and they aren't hard at all!):
1. Check out her store and become a "Follower" on the Pizzazz Aplenty website.
2. Leave me a comment here and let me know what your favorite product is from there.

Easy, right? I'll pick a winner this Sunday, the 3rd and post it soon after that. I can't wait to see what ya'll think of PIZZAZZ APLENTY!! Thank you, Judy for letting me share your store and some funsies with my readers.
