Time for a give-a-way

Hard to believe December is a week away. ( I know.. I know... get through Thanksgiving before we jump in to Christmas) lol Well , if you come here very often , you know I've been posting Challenges for the girls on the Crafty Secrets Design Team... they come up with so many gorgeous things each and every time. This time the challenge will be to use one of the many beautiful images Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage has... or create something with one of the new Christmas stamp sets. ( or something combining the two).

We will all be posting what we make... next MONDAY.. which just happens to be the FIRST DAY OF DECEMBER. We'll be linking to each others blogs , so that you can check out what each of us have created for the challenge.

I've been having so much fun with these Christmas Images from the "Christmas Image and Journal Book" from Crafty Secrets.. I decided to put together a little giveaway , and share these vintage images from the book... along with some other goodies.

Tis the season ... so I put together 3 packages as give-a-ways. Below is a photo of what is in each give-a-way.




12 pages out of the image book, book print, bingo card, envies, tickets, ribbon, pom pom trim.. emblies ect...




just some fun stuff to play and create with.








All you have to do is leave a comment in this post, any time between now and next Monday (Dec 1st), and I'll put your name in for the drawing.


Monday morning I'll draw for three winners.


_________________________________


In the mean time , if you want to see some of the thing the girls have been creating with Crafty Secrets Products , you can see them on the blog and in the gallery.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
