February's Final Freebie Friday Giveaway

Hi all! Isn't that title a tongue twister?! I know it's Superbowl Sunday, but it's also the day I'm announcing my February Final Freebie Friday giveaway {try saying that 10 times fast!). Here it is: Since I'm an embellishment girl, I thought I'd throw in buttons and ribbons with a stamp set! I'm loving the clear mount stamp sets that Stampin'Up! has just come out with. This set in particular is only available during the Sale-a-bration period, when you order merchandise of $50 or more. So, if you haven't taken advantage of that offer, here's an extra chance to win this cute set! Here's exactly what you get:
*Vintage Labels Clear Mount Sale-a-bration stamp set
*Kiwi Kiss Corduroy Buttons
*Barely Banana and Certainly Celery ribbon combo
The lucky winner will be announced on my blog on Friday, February 26th. Here are the rules to play {enforced by the honor systyem ;) }
1. Leave me a comment on this post by midnight Pacific Time, Wed, February 24, 2010.
2. On your comment, please make sure to include a valid email address or blog URL (that either I can leave a comment on or have a way of contacting you). For those of you that are uncomfortable with leaving an email in a post, you can write your info like this: yourname at emailaccount dot com.
3. One comment per person please.
4. Anyone can play - international visitors welcome!
You can leave me a comment about anything, or you can answer this question: What is the last book you read? Mine was The Guernsey Literary and the Potato Peel Pie Society. I thought it was an entertaining read and would definitely recommend it!

Great blog candy! hmmmm...the last book I read was The Shack.

Larisa said...

What is the last book I read? That was the book by new Russian aythor Pavel Sanaev. The book's name is too difficult to put it into English, and I am afraid I can't translate it as well to give the right idea of it. This book made me shocked a lot, and I have not an idea to start the new one to read even...
