Monday cards & A Winner!!

Hi Friends!  It's Monday and the start of another new week.  This is the week to get all Christmas cards mailed.  I am determined to get really organised and finish what is required.  These are my recent creations - I guess you could say they are based on the same layout/sketch.

I am seriously in love with the Lily Bee Jingle papers, most of my Christmas cards are made using them.  And, I used the same sentiment & image stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions - Wreath of Joy, Seasonal Wreath Die & Basic Bow Die

Now, to announce the final Winner of my Birthday Giveaway.  Instead of checking through all comments, I decided to just take the comments from the first post of the week (as of midnight Sunday my timezone), and then have to pick out a number.  Then I'll check that the person has commented on all my postings.  So... here's the result:
From the 15 comments on this post, picked out Commentor No. 1, and so... the prize goes to...

Hoi, Wendy, Big Congrats for winning the Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles dies!! Woo-hoo, I know you have been wanting them, and I am SO glad your number was chosen.  And because you are a follower, I'll be sending you a special something too.  I'll let that be a surprise.  

Thank you, Everyone, for sharing the Birthday celebration month with me.  Your kind words and comments have meant a lot.  I hope you'll be back to visit soon.
Have a Happy Week!!

Stamps : Taylored Expressions Wreaths of JoyThe Craft's Meow Timeless Tags (the sentiment frame on the second card)
