Christmas in Summer & Giveaway Week 1!!

Hello!  Welcome to the start of my November Birthday Month Giveaways!!  More info at the bottom of this post, but, first, I have a summer Christmas card, especially for those of use who live near the equator and southern hemisphere.  I used "Just for You" Jolinne image and paper pieced her dress with Lily Bee's Jingle papers.  I'm glad to finally ink up this set that I've had for sometime {lol}.

Here are some close up pics:
Border die-namics Faux Crochet Border, and Oval Tab

MFT Die-namics Butterflies

My card is based on this MFT sketch:
And... here's the fun part - I've decided to start the month long of Giveaways today.  November is my birthday month, and I think it's a great time to celebrate by rewarding the readers of my blog.  It's very easy... all you need to do is comment on my posts the whole week and you will be in the draw.  Every week I'll be giving away different prizes and some weeks I might throw in an additional item.  I think it's more fun to be giving away smaller prizes rather than one big prize so more of you will have a chance to win something.

I am amazed that some of you are constant followers of my blog - I really appreciate your support & kind words.  When I started blogging, I never thought anyone would be interested to read what I have to share, so I thank you for taking the time to visit each time and for your fabulous comments.  It really makes my day, seriously.  Ok, I think that's enough talk.. here's the prize:

Since My Favorite Things is one of my favourite stamp companies, I'm going to give away this MFT stamp set to the winner this week.
And, if the person who wins is a follower of my blog (from the google or networked blogs list), the person will also receive a $20 gift voucher to use at the MFT store.  I guess you know what to do if you want both the prizes.. {grins}.  The Week 1 giveaway will close on midnight Sunday night 6 Nov (my time zone, GMT +8hours).  On Monday morning, I will pick a winner and announce it that day.  Don't forget, you need to comment on my every post the whole week long to qualify.

Enjoy the week!

This is just precious, Kary. You did an outstanding job of coloring her and I love the shading on the mat behind her. Awesome job.

Kary this is such a beautiful but unconventional Christmas card - love that you have used a 'summery' theme for those of us who are on the bottom of the world :-)
Blessings

Such a cute card! I love the paper-piecing and the butterfly. My Christmas cards due tend to stick to snow and Santas, so yours is a great change!
Happy birthday month!

The white floral bow is outstanding. The demure and shy persona of the girl warms my heart. Happy birthday.
