A Giveaway and the PRE "big" Announcement

I am sorry that I kept you on pins and needles about my "big" announcement. The thing is I will have a few  exciting posts for next week (somewhere around 14, 15). So in order to thank you for visiting me and the next little while, I am having a small giveaway.

The rule:  Starting from this post and all posts leading up to April 17, midnight Eastern time, I will randomly draw one winner from all the comments. One comment per post. You are welcome to comment on all posts till April 17 (and beyond, of course). However, in order to be eligible, you have to be a follower of my blog and that way you will not miss a thing!

The prize:
Spellbinder (Label Three)
Two wooden stamps
Two large sets of clear stamps
Two small sets of clear stamps
One sheet of SRM Stickers
Two embellishment packs
Two packs of gems

I can't wait for next week to come. 16th is my daughter Stephanie's and 17th is my hubby John's birthday! Yup, their birthdays are that close to each other's! You can see why I'm so excited!? Now you can start commenting from this post and have a chance to win some goodies! It can be YOU!
