Giveaway Week 5 & Winner!!

Hello Friends!  I can't believe we're at the last week of November, which means it's also the last week of my Birthday Giveaway.  Thank you so much for your kind & sweet comments the past few weeks - I can't tell you how fun it has been for me.  Be sure to visit me this whole week, as I'll have some exciting prizes for you.

But, first, I have a card to share.  This card was made for the MFT sketch challenge this week.  I think this Pure Innocence girl is one of my favourite Christmas stamps.  It's a little challenging to colour her esp with the candle, and I still need more practice.

And, here's another view:

So, here's the bit that everyone is waiting for - This week's Giveaway item is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium.  I am so amazed by the generosity of Joy Kennedy - I had ordered some products from IE's online store and when the order arrived I discovered an additional item sent in error.  I wrote to Joy and she suggested that I give it away on my blog.  So awesome!  For those of you who live outside the US, I would suggest you check out Inspiration Emporium as their overseas shipping is the BEST!  So, here's the prize for this week - Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles dies!!

The rule is really easy - be sure to comment on every post this week to qualify to win this set of dies.  As per the previous weeks, if the winner is a follower of my blog, there will be an additional prize.  I'll leave that as a surprise once again, but you're going to love it.

Thank you everyone who participated last week. helped me picked a number from all comments from last week.  The winner for Week 3 giveaway is....

Woo-hoo, Congrats Lisa!!  You win the Inspired Stamps set!   I have emailed you and look forward to hear from you.

Thanks to some of you who wrote to me offering feedback and what you'd like to see.  I'll work on it and hopefully be able to do more next year.  December is a crazy month and so is January as we'll be celebrating Chinese New Year, and I guess it's the busiest time for my family.

Have a great week!

Hi dear Kary!

Oh, your card is sooo cute!!! I love the way you use those MFT stamps! I don't own one myself, but I always like them so much with you! I do believe my friend Marit has one of those, so maybe I should try it myself once, hi hi. And, yep, this cutie is perfect for christmas!!
Your giveaway is amazing this week! Don't have these yet, but I've been eyeing them for a while, 'cause I saw so many pretty cards, using this shape! So, it's perfect to have a chance on winning this with you!
Congrats to Lisa as well!!!
Hugs, Wendy

Great card - I think you did an amazing job colouring her.

Great card. It is just gorgeous----Yesterday I spent a couple of hours making cards, practicing with my Copics. I should probably buy more so I don't have to mix two colors---it just doesn't look the same as having a LOT of different colors to choose from. I love your work..
