My First Giveaway! #A Crafter's Dream

My Merry Messy Life: A Crafter's Dream Giveaway #ACraftersDream    
 I'm so excited to bring you A Crafter's Dream Christmas Giveaway! This giveaway is hosted by My Merry Messy Life, Earning-My-Cape and Tutus & Tea Parties and has a Christmas, crafting, and supporting small business theme! Each blogger is offering her/his own giveaway worth $25 or more going on now through Sunday, November 4, 2012.

 Christmas is just around the corner, and the time to start crafting our gifts for friends and family is now! Some of the blogs in the giveaway group will be giving away some awesome crafting supplies! Sometimes we want to give a handmade gift, but just don't have the time or know-how to make them ourselves. This is a great opportunity to support small businesses and shops who offer handmade items! Some of the blogs in our giveaway group will be highlighting such small businesses and offering giveaway items for them, as well. Even if you don't win the giveaway, we hope that you will keep these small businesses in mind when shopping for that perfect gift for your special someone.

I'm very excited to be a part of this giveaway!  In correlation with Christmas time, it also helps me mark my 1 year anniversary here as a blogger and as an Etsy shop owner!  A year ago it seemed like just a dream, but I love every minute of it now and can't wait to see how the future develops for this little business that I have started, built around my passion for making cards!

Today I've put together a gorgeous bundle of 5 handmade Christmas cards and a set of 5 coordinating tags to be offered to one randomly selected winner!
 This is a fabulous set!  The details on each card have been meticulous hand cut/colored by me.  Each card has a different layout but all the materials used are the same throughout the whole set.  Even the tags have the same image and papers used!  
 The adorable image on these cards and tags is Christmas Angel from the fabulously talented Krista Smith at Saturated Canary.  Her images have been taking the paper crafting world by storm with their fun and whimsical themes and precious little faces!  Don't miss out on your chance to have this wonderful set as your own!



 Now you can hop from blog to blog entering as many giveaways as you want!

  10. I make sure that the card is flat to I can send it in the mail without worrying that it will get damaged. Charms are cute but they get squished and scratched.

  12. Definitely unique, as most everyone said. Anything that is sweet and make me go "Awwww!" with little hearts in my eyes lol. I don't know why, but I am especially attracted to the holiday cards that have little cartoony characters (be it animals or Santa, etc) that have huge round noses that take up half their faces. I personally made a set of Christmas cards one year using stamps that had characters like that on them. And I decorated it with glitter, buttons, ribbon, and little squares of colorful tissue paper. They came out so cute.
