Freebie Friday 17 is here!

I'm excited to share my Freebie Friday 17 giveaway with you because it incorporates a couple of fun new ideas. First, let me show you what you can win:
Do you like it? It's the Bag with Scallop die in the Parisian Breeze Specialty Paper that has a little peek-a-boo window, using the Window Sheets from the Occasions Mini Catalog. A nifty thing to use to have the box easily re-sealable is to use a little piece of Velcro. Since the paper's nice and sturdy enough, it holds up well with repeated openings and closings. Now, let's talk about the flowers in the foreground - those sorta look like they're earrings, right...well they're actually MAGNETS! Isn't that fun? Corey Urey demonstrated using Magnet Sheets with the Big Shot dies at this past weekend's event, and I thought it was such a great idea! You can make all kinds of magnets with various flowers, butterflies, and any of the plethora of dies available to use on the Big Shot. I had a lot of fun making these and I hope you like them!

Now in order to play for this week's giveaway, you'll need to leave me a comment on this post by midnight on Saturday, May 2nd, with your email address or your blog URL (as long as I have a way of contacting you). You can leave a comment about anything, or answer this question: What is your favorite board game or card game?

I married into a family that LOVES to play board games and I've come to really enjoy playing them too! So, over the years, my favorites have evolved. I'd have to say my current favorite is Taboo. We've had many entertaining game nights playing this game with both family and friends. I'm looking forward to hearing from you guys! Have a great weekend!

Hi Rose! Thanks for sending me the link to your blog again! I've had a lot of fun looking at all of your amazing designs. Impressed! And inspired! I had a great time at the last card event, so I'll have to come again. :)
Okay. . .You KNOW how I love board games! I would have to say that Taboo is my favorite, but I'm looking for a new favorite, as I'm getting kinda tired of that one. . . We must have a game night soon and try a new game! Have a wonderful weekend. :)

Hello Rose,
Your bag is very cute. Great way to use the window sheets! I have a question; have you used the window sheets on cards, and if so, how did you adhere them onto the card?
The magnet idea is also great! You have such beautiful crafts on your blog!
My favorite game is scrabble or candylane!
Thank you for the inspiration!
