A 'Thankful' Give-a-way!

Edit to add: GIVE-A-WAY CLOSED!

Hi all!!  It's Give-a-way time!  Hooray!  In late 2011, I mentioned that I would be having a give-a-way in early 2012, so I wanted to keep that promise.  I call this a "Thankful" Give-a-way because I have lots to be thankful for!

I've reached some goals that I wanted to accomplish for 2011, and that makes me happy!  I still have TONS of goals left on my list that I would like to complete by 2013/14!!  I'm thankful for my DH's accomplishments. My husband is graduating very soon with his degree in Business Management/Information Technology.  And I'm very happy for him.  It has been a hard road for him, working 50 or more hours each week, on graveyard shift....and going to school at the same time.   He has also dealt with a lot of health complications as well, so through it all, we can't complain too much!   We have all survived! :)

I have all of YOU  to be thankful for, my faithful blog readers, or even if you don't read my blog but hit me up on Twitter or Facebook, hey, I'm cool with that....and all the friendships I've made through this fun hobby of ours....OK! Seriously, I could go on.....and on for every thankful meaning in my life...........but let's get to the goodies, one person will win all of this...open to all U.S. and International peeps!

Giveaway Mar2012

It includes: Hero Arts clear stamp set, Penny Black Clear stamp sets, (7) Tim Holtz Distress Markers, Jenni Bowlin inks, a Technique Tuesday clear set, a Lawn Fawn 6 x6 paper pad, CARDS Magazines, Doodlebug Designs Twine, and Lawn Fawn twine.

And knowing me, I'll most likely add on stuff that is not shown here.  Everything is brand new, never opened, and clean. I may throw in some more duplicate CARDS Magazines as well.

I heard these guys are popular:

Giveaway Mar2012a

I'll do lots more give-a-ways down the road too, so fun!!

Leave any comment you want here and I'll leave it open for a while.
