BLOG GIVE AWAY!!!

UPDATE!!!
After I posted this prize post, Tammy from the Calendar Girls told me that the scuttlebutt in the cricut world was that the European Decor cartridge would NOT be released. But we wanted PC to confirm this. I also contacted Oh My Crafts! about it, but they insisted the cartridge would be released, they had not heard otherwise.
Since CHA ended, OMC! has apparently learned that this cartridge is indeed not being released. BUT DON'T WORRY!!! I'm still giving away a cartridge! OMC has refunded my order in the form of a gift certificate. When I choose a winner, I will work with you to pick out a cartridge that you want from whatever OMC sells (that isn't too much over the price I paid for ED). That way we still have a winner and the winner gets a cartridge you don't already own!

Hello all my crafty friends!!!!  I am so excited to offer my very first blog prize! It's a biggie too! I've had an exciting weekend so far, being asked to join my local scrapbook store's design team and then realizing that I've over 100 followers already!  So I want to share some excitement!

All you cricut crafters lookie lookie! What can you win you ask???

EUROPEAN DECOR Cricut Cartridge!

That's right!  I have pre-ordered 2 European Decor cricut cartridges. One for me, and one for one lucky cricut crafter!!!   I pre-ordered from Oh My Crafts because with their 20% discount code (sign up for their email newsletter to get the coupon codes) I got a decent price on the cartridges.  This IS a pre-order, which means whoever wins will have to wait with me for the cartridges to get shipped to me, then I will turn around and ship the cart out to you the next day, okay? I even saved a box specifically for mailing out to you. :)

So, how can you win, do you ask?  Well, you can have up to 3 chances to win!  Here they are:

1.   Leave a comment to this post. If you are posting anonymously, be sure to leave me a way to contact you!

2.  Become a follower of my blog and leave a separate comment.  If you are already a follower, go ahead and leave a separate comment saying so, so that I can get you in the drawing for it. :)

3. Post on your blog or create a sidebar link to my blog about this give away and then leave a separate comment saying you did so along with your blog url so I can come see!

On January 31 I will use a random generator website to "draw" the winner, and will post that winner at approximately 5pm central time. I'm hoping by then we might have heard when the cart will finally be shipping. ha! Good luck my cricut crafty peeps!
