A Quick Giveaway

Hello My Friends,

I recently won 3 digital stamps from Fresh Brewed Designs and I came up with the idea for this card.  I call it "Under the Sea"

Do you see those skittles that are glued on the sand to look like sea glass?  I have gone skittles crazy lately.  I have been using them on all of my cards.  I only had 3 colors though, so I decided to order some more from my buddy Carri at   Double Click Connections they arrived today.  Look at all these yummy colors!

Notice that at the bottom there are three bags that say "bonus colors"?  Those are for you!  I added another color and that is my giveaway for today!

To win, just leave me a comment below and be a follower, we will let Mr. Random.org choose the winner.
If you would like to order some skittles from Carri, click HERE.

  24. Hi Chriss -thanks for stopping by my blog - go ahead and use all the cardboard your heart desires and emboss away - I think saving and using cardboard is one of the best ideas for crafting! Works for lots of crafting - and I even ran the heavy stuff corrugated cardboard through my Cuttlebug and I like the look - worked great on my ATC die cut -thanks for a chance to win some Skittles - I have not tried these yet and it is good to know there are NO Calories with these! Enjoy your crafting week!
