Are YOU the Winner?

May Arts has teamed up with Creative Impressions/Luminarte this week!
I have a tutorial showcasing some quick and easy holiday gifts and an elegant card.

Tip: to my readers with school age children, this post may be just what you are looking for.
I would love for you to stop by the blog to check it out and let me know what you think!
(Word on the street is that there are a few giveaways going on there!)
Speaking of giveaways...
  My mother has been asking most every day if I've drawn a winner from
The Big Birthday Givaway Game
so I figured that since mothers are always right, that it is high time I posted one!
I wanted to say thanks again for everyone that chimed in! THANK YOU!!!
(PS...I have big plans when I reveal my favorite color, that will come soon.)
From the five posts, Random.Org chose the third day.
Then he decided to chose commenter number 47 who is...
 lisa arana!
 (Lisa, please email me your mailing address and I can get the goodies out to you this weekend!)

Let me tell ya, I had a super fun time with this whole giveaway thing
so there will be more to come, probably won't stretch it out over five days though...
(birthdays only come once a year so I had to make it big!)

And, I didn't want to write up this whole post without showcasing a card.
I made this using a variety of Wplus9 stamps.
One layer.
Little bulk.
Perfect for mailing.
Can you see the flocked snowfakes?
