Top Five and Giveaway

I have seen lots of people show their favorite projects for 2011 and I thought it was a great idea!

Here are my five favorite cards for 2011:








If you would like specific info on any of these cards, please head over to my gallery. I have direct links there to my original posts.  

I cannot believe this year went by so fast.  It's been a lot of fun meeting crafters from all over the world and getting inspiration from such talented people. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to belong to the crafting community.  I have met some of the nicest and supportive people here!  The last giveaway I held was a while ago and I recently reached 150+ friends :)  Therefore I would like to hold a New Year's Giveaway.  


Here is the prize:


This is such a cute cartridge! 

Here is how you can win it:
1. For one entry you must be a follower.  Please leave a comment on this post letting me know that you are follower. 
2. For a second entry, please help me spread the word about my giveaway.  It can be on your sidebar or within a post.  Please leave a comment here with a link to your blog.

This giveaway will end on January 15th at midnight.  The winner will be selected using Random.org

I hope everyone has a safe and fun New Years! I will be staying at home and celebrating New Years with my husband and my puppy.  

Thank you for visiting!
