Blog Candy Giveaway!

Hi Everyone! We've decided its time to give away some more blog candy! Yay!

In order to qualify, just post a comment on this post and you will be randomly selected to win these cute Hello Kitty dies (its actually Hello Kitty's friends). You need to have a login (no anonymous comments please) to post a comment to qualify. Deadline to post your comment is Saturday May 23, 2009 at midnight HST (aka Friday night). Winner will be announced this weekend. Dies can be picked up in store, but if you can't make it... we'll ship it to you! Hooray! That means anyone can play!

Michele actually found some time to do some paper crafting (yay for her)! Here's some cards she made using these two dies. The first sample was made using the bird die. The background paper and cork paper is from the Paper Company. The flower is Hero Arts and the larger flower was cut using Hanko washi paper.

This next sample used the same die but this time the bird was cut using Hanko washi paper. The scallop die is by Sizzix and the crystals are by Hero Arts.

Finally, the last sample was made using the squirrel die. The cardstock is by Bazzil and the glittered cardstock is by Doodlebug. The Missing You sentiment was cut from the Friends Forever Cuttlebug cut and emboss set. These sets come with an embossing folder AND die which contains several sentiments.
