We are having a giveaway – that’s right blog candy for you hoppers!  Carolyn of Nuts 4 Scrappin is giving away a stamp set to one of our  hoppers!  She is giving away a stamp set called "Bonjour".  You can see a  picture of the stamp set on her blog.   All you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment on each blog and become a follower of Carolyn's blog. 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create If you came from TinaGale ~ then you are in the right place!

I made a cute treat bag this month with the super fun stamp set Very Merry Christmas and our new Cricut Artiste cart. (Z1790) pg. 77. And the stamped images were very easy to make with the Cricut cuts on page 79 and 35 for the tag. 

The Red Glitz Glitter Gel (Z1484) worked perfect with the B&T paper from the Pear & Partridge paper pack (X7162B)

What a perfect little gift to give someone you care for!
