Cricut Tuesdays & Special Contest/Blog Candy Announcement

Stayed tuned to towards the end of this post as I have a special announcement regarding a contest related to this particular blog thread (Cricut Tuesdays)!

Hi Everyone!

Are you feeling the Autumn air, noticing the change in color of the leaves and admiring that golden sun? I am and Fall season is definitely upon us.

To kick off the 2009 holiday season is the time of year well loved by almost everyone... Halloween! My Son is quite young and does not quite understand fully what Halloween means especially to know when you can get lots of yummy treats (and I think that is kind of a blessing right now).

He will be celebrating his 2nd Halloween and to help him I have created these cute cards and tags to give to our neighbours and fellow kids in our immediate area. For these projects I blended the use of stamps, heat embossing, watercoloring with chalks and my Cricut with the A Child's Year cartridge. TFL!

Over the next couple of weeks leading up to Halloween I will be creating accompanying projects to coordinate with the above card and tag. By the last Tuesday of the month (on October 27th, my birthday); you will be able to create quick, easy and I think creative projects to help you and your kids & family celebrate Halloween; even if you are short on time!

And now for my special announcement... I will be hosting my first ever blog contest/candy for Posh Designs Scrapbook Store.

Take note of the following rules and regulations:

1) 1 prize will be awarded for the next 3 weeks to be announced every Tuesday in my blog post.

Prizes will include an assortment of Cricut products such as Stamp Sheets with Folders, Storage Binder, a brand new Cricut cartridge - Sponge Bob cartridge, yes you read correctly, a free cartridge giveaway, valued at 99.99$ USD and Gift Certificates from Posh Designs Scrapbook Store to spend any way you'd like!

c) Leave me a comment at the end of each Cricut Tuesday blog post.
