Sunday Giveaway

Hello friends

I was AWOL yesterday!
I've been a busy bee getting the Spellbinders design boards ready for the CHA 
shows that are on Create and Craft - don't forget to tune in and see Christina on Wednesday, 
wow there are some beautiful dies! 
In between I've been watching the gale force winds from my window -
I hope you are all warm and safe.

I thought it would be nice to have a giveaway today,
I want to think of Spring and Summer now that Christmas is over and
that always conjures up flowers.

Up for grabs is two die sets - Create An Aster and Create an Iris.

Just leave a comment on today's blog and I will announce the winners
next week. 

I really like the Create A Flower dies, I know they are a little more time consuming
but the realistic flowers are so worth it.
Last year I ran classes making the frame below.
 Still can't decide which flower I like the best!
The Create A Flower dies are on the website along with a few in pre-loved -
so handy to have more than one die set when cutting multiple petals!

Also on the website there's a Freckled Fawn embellishment sale and check out the
ribbons - they are on sale too.

Have a great Sunday and don't forget to comment if you would 
like to be entered into the giveaway.

Take care friends.

Good morning Christine
The weather has been horrible here. The wind, rain and hailstones have been battering my craft room window but I stayed warm and snug inside.
I love these flower dies. I have the rose and sunflower ones and yes they are time consuming to cut and a little fiddly but the results are stunning and well worth the time they take to make. They are a real focal point on a card and make wonderful embellishments to home decor projects.
Enjoy your day

Chris said...

Hi Christine,
I have the Sunflower die, and actually made a Yellow one and Red one the other day to put on two 8x8 cards that I had made and they set the cards off beautifully. I agree they are a bit fiddly but quite therapeutic to make and have the desired effect. Thanks for chance to win the give away.
Have a lovely day.

Lynn said...

Hi Christine, I live these create a flower dies, gradually building my stash. It's really windy here, we got fed up with the bird table blowing over that we've left it on its side until the wind stops, the birds keep landing on it and looking across to the patio doors as if to say "this is wrong". Hope you're keeping warm.... Lynn x

Diane said...
