Whoa, contest time!


Well, as we all know, blog contests are quite popular. I recently passed the 5,000 view landmark, so I figured, why not join in the give away fun. In order to be eligible, you must comment on this post. So, what's the prize you ask?? Well, it's a Seeing Spots Classy Brass template. Dry embossing is loads of fun, and if you haven't tried it yet, I encourage you to. It really adds that extra little wow factor to your card. I will choose the winner randomly on October 31st at midnight my time (so that's the early morning of Halloween). Good luck!


Edited to add... Just in case you weren't convinced over brassy templates, here's a card I just made using the seeing spots template (I've got 2, that's why I'm giving one away!) This card was made for the Thursday and Friday challenge at SCS. The Thursday one was to use a stencil, the Friday one was to be TGIF related. Nothing says the weekend like vibrant colours and sharing a smile!
