Happy New Years - and Giveaway!!!

Good morning! Happy 2013 to everyone!!! I'm a little slower than I planned this morning - but as promised yesterday - I do have a giveaway today! It is one of my very FAVORITE sets right now - and still perfect for wintertime, which at least here in Wyoming should be going on for quite a while! So...to win, just leave me a comment about anything (see below for ways to earn extra entries)! Here is the set:


Here is a card I made a couple of weeks ago with this set. My original plan was to use it for the Unity Kit of the Month sketch challenge...but, I didn't think about it until I was done - this didn't use a Kit of the Month! Duh moment there! So...I saved it to share now!
I don't know who the papers are by - they were random individual pieces that I purchased from a clearance bin and loved. 
I stamped the main snowflake image with PTI ink on a shape cut and embossed with a Spellbinder's Die. Added a bit of color with my Copic markers, then attached some bling. 
I used one of the smaller snowflakes on some pattern paper to make the background, using a couple different colors of PTI ink. 
Stamped the sentiment by selectively inking it with the same two PTI ink colors, wrapped some jute twine and tied it in a pretty bow, then attached the main snowflake with foam adhesive. 
I also inked the edges of everything with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo, then matted the whole thing in white before attaching to my card base. 
So remember to leave me a comment before you go for a chance to win this set! I will leave it open for a week or so before drawing a winner. 

If you want to have extra chances to win (aside from just an ordinary comment!), feel free to do the following, leaving me a separate comment for each entry:

1. Become a follower of my blog (or let me know you already are)
2. Follow me on Facebook (click HERE)
3. Share this giveaway - either on your blog, or on Facebook and leave me a link in your comment

That's a total of up to 4 entries per person!

Thanks as always for stopping by - have a wonderful day - and a super happy 2013!!!

    I've never seen this stamp set before, but I've fallen in love with it now. Since I had a winter themed wedding years ago, snowflakes are kind of my thing!
