  35. I have my blinders on while writing my comment.

    Thanks for allowing us to celebrate your anniversary with you and also for being so generous- not just at this time but often on your blogs and facebook.

    I have done the hop and posted comments on all. Please include me in your wonderful birthday drawing.

    I was almost confused on my number since I was writing them down as I went and I had "3" next to Simon Says Challenge blog and when I got to the end (Simon says stamp blog) it said "4" so I scratched out my 3 - went back to look and realized you had two blogs in the same contest. Your number on this blog was 4 (added to all the other number) my final answer is 40.

    Thanks for the challenge.

  36. This was creazy way to find out what's the number :D But I really like it! The number is 40 and it's funny because I also get no. 40 at the Mr Linky on the challenge blog :D
    Once again: happy 1st blog aniversary :)

  37. And the answer is .... 40. Yay! got there in the end. What a great idea, gives you a chance to see other fantastic blogs too. Fingers are crossed. Anita xx

  38. Congrats on your blog birthday and the chance to win such a great prize!
