A Fantastic Win!

Recently,
my friend Dawn at
had a very special giveaway to help
celebrate HER birthday.
What a sweetheart!
She is a wonderfully,
talented gal and I do
hope you will check out her inspiring blog.

I received my fantastic package today.
So perfect on a very rainy, dreary day.

The first thing I opened up was
this gorgeous card!


Next up...
this AMAZING box she handcrafted!





Cute as can be but it gets even better...


Next up...
this AMAZING box she handcrafted!


Outstanding!  And these were not even part of the give away.
I told you she was TALENTED.

Here's what I won:

A  Freestyle Mouse Cutting Kit
by Purple Cow.

And this...

The most amazing Smart Trimmer
by Purple Cow.  It even has a case.
I'm getting classy now people!


I am completely overwhelmed
and I can't thank Dawn enough
for this very generous giveaway.

There's only one problem...
there's NO guarantee that I'll
ever become as talented as Dawn is!
:)

THANK YOU, DAWN!

Oh I am so relieved your package came and was all in one piece!!!
You are to kind for all those nice words. I enjoy what I do but not sure I am that talented...sure appreciate you think I am.
Enjoy your gifts and can't wait to see what you create-the box was the first thing I made with Purple cows and even shared the tutorial on my blog if you want to make some.
Hugs sweetie

ha ha! i like your 'no guarantee' comment. she is pretty darn skilled and creative!

Donna said...

Those are wonderful gifts, Jill!! My sis use to use Purple Cow and loved the products! The cutter and grid mat you will love when you start to use it. I don't know how we did things before we got these self healing grids! Oh yeah, we ruined a ton of table tops!!

The card your friend made for you is beautiful as is the box. It looks like a take on the exploding box, I like this better with the edges tied and the look of a finished box! Very, very pretty!! You're right, she is very talented!

I'm so happy for you to receive such beautiful items!

Hugs,
Donna

Congrats on your winnings. Very well deserved. Can't wait to see what you create with your new toy.
We have had terrible weather for the past 2 days and there is more to come. Great for the grass and to stay in doors and create. I have not been in the creating mood. I have only been watching baseball and basketball.
Have a great rest of the weekend.
