My Last Blog...For Awhile

Hello My Friends & Welcome Visitors,

Due to some health problems, I have decided to take a break from my Design Teams and from my blog.  I am taking the months of November & December off.  I hope to return in January.

Of course I would not leave you without something fun to do while I am gone so let's have a prize contest....remember, you can enter from anywhere in the world.  I consider the shipping part of the prize.


This will be a nice prize for January.  You can get all of your Christmas pictures scrapped or start on your Christmas cards for 2015.

This is Graphic 45 "Twas The Night Before Christmas".  You will receive a 12x12 paper pad, and 8x8 paper pad, some cardboard embellishments and some stamps!


What do you need to do to win?

1.  You must be a follower of this blog
2.  Please post this prize on your side bar
3.  Come back here and leave me a comment.
4.  The winner's name will be drawn by Random.org on Monday, January 5, 2015

Thank you to all my friends who have been such loyal followers all these years!

Hugs & Kisses!

  6. Oh, Chriss, I am so sorry you're having issues with your health again. I will pray for you. I hope the break will be beneficial. It is very generous of you to do this wonderful giveaway. I have not tried G45 yet but have been oohing and awing over it for quite a while. Maybe this will be my chance to try it. I will add your pic to my sidebar. All the best to you over the next couple months and I look forward to seeing your lovely designs in 2015.

    1. Hi Shirl, I am just as weak as a kitten. Sunday, I slept almost the entire day. I got up to watch the Redskins lose, then went right back to bed and slept all night. Luckily, my friend Patty came over and cleaned my house from top to bottom, I have such wonderful friends (including you). I am still having test done...so we shall see! Yes, I am talking about the candy giveaway above. Thank you darling!

  21. Hi Chris...to answer your question...when I'm attaching vellum I tend to wrap it around my card and attach it with tape...glue never looks good...I will also use a stapler or brads...or sometimes strategically placed bling that I can place glue behind. I'll place your giveaway in my sidebar for my peeps to see. Thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann :)

    Thank you for offering such a nice giveaway. I had promised (i.e. told) myself I'd do Christmas stuff all through the year, so there's no rush in November....
