Let The Games Begin!

In a shameless effort to promote myself and my crafting blog, this month I'm going to start what hopefully will be a monthly tradition of giving back to my loyal readers and fellow enthusiasts.

First up this week, your opportunity to win either a new Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration stamp set or a new Cricut cartridge.



The stamp set is entitled 'Good Neighbors'. Not only is this set not available for individual purchase, but it's one of the new clear-mount rubber stamp sets introduced exclusively for Sale-a-Bration. It consists of ten individual rubber stamps with a new cling-mount foam system packaged in a new DVD style storage case. All you need is a clear acrylic mounting block and you're ready to stamp away.




The Cricut cartridge is 'Plantin Schoolbook'. This cartridge is usually bundled with the Cricut Expression and is a great basic shapes and font cartridge. It is brand-new, never registered nor linked to a Gypsy. (I received a new Green Expression for Christmas and already own this cart. So I hope someone out there can use it).

To win either prize (winners determined by random draw), you only need to do one thing: Leave a comment on this post. However, I'd really love it if you would consider "following" this blog by signing up on the right sidebar. This will keep you informed of updates to the blog and other giveaways coming down the pipeline. The deadline for this giveaway is Sunday, January 24, 2010 at 11:59 p.m. MST. Winners will be posted on Monday and they can contact me with their mailing information.

As always, thanks for reading and helping get the word out that men can craft too! Be on the lookout for some really great giveaways right around the corner.

Kraftychick said...

Great blog (I'm also here via Okie's blog!) - but I must say I am REALLY impressed!! And, it is a shame more men don't show their "crafty" side. My husband is interested in what I'm doing, but he really can't see how I can sit for hours and do all this detail stuff! Oh well, I don't see what's so great about watching cars driving around a track and crashing into one another either! LOL!

Thanks for the chance to win these neat looking stamps - would give me a chance to try SU stamps!

Margot said...

I just discovered your blog courtesy of okie ladybug. First let me say that I totally agree w/ you about the Picturesque cartridge. This is my absolute favorite, hands down!!! PC has no idea what a bad marketing idea it is NOT to release this as a regular cartridge. Anyway, would love to win your giveaway and am excited to have found your blog. I look forward to your next post! TIA! Margot misingyu2@gmail.cim

Bobbi said...

helen said...

i came for the candy but stayed for the talent that is here on this blog. each posting is like a turorial with written and photos to aid in the process...you are a natural teacher and your creations look professionally fininshed. i am now and forever a follower, i never doubted that men could craft, my father was my inspiration and i while i crafted in some fashion all my life, i became a blogger after his death this last august, i just had to continue with my creativity even in grief!
