Adventures in Firsts: 100 Followers & ADV 1st Giveaway!

To all the wonderful people who have joined in our adventure, THANK YOU! 
It is so exciting to read all the comments and to share ideas and encouragement. As you can see the GFC counter on the right is over 100! And to celebrate that milestone in the Adventures of D and V, here is our first giveaway. 
So one lucky reader will win the following:
 A set of home made cards. I love making cards and a few months ago participated in a CARD SWAP. The winner will get a set of 10 cards and envelopes.
 If you missed it you can read about how much I LOVE lists {HERE}
And I made these sweet flower pens as a baby shower favor {HERE}
The winner will get this flower pen and pad of paper.
By far the most popular post to date has been all Daniel's idea!
For all of you who commented on how you just tossed your hard boiled egg slicer,
now one reader will have this handy kitchen tool that is no longer just for slicing eggs!
And finally, I did one other swap, a mug swap.
Hot beverages are frequently consumed in our house, so I thought a mug was appropriate.
The winner will receive this mug!
