{ January Happiness Giveaway Challenge }

**NOTE: This post will remain at the top until the closing of this challenge. Please scroll down for new posts!**


That's right! It's that time again. I was so lucky myself last month with my blog candy winnings that I wanted to make this month a good one. I was out today at Michaels and picked up some yummy candy...at least I hope you think so. So onto the challenge...



Your challenge is to make something with a new item you received for Christmas. It can be a new stamp set, Designer Paper, Embellishments...whatever, but it must be a new creation with something new! Got it?



You have until 9:00pm MST January 31st to get your entry in. You can enter as many times as you wish, but you must use something different eachtime. You can post a link to your blog or email me a pic of your creation. I will make a random draw from all entries received.



Now here is what you are playing for...



* 1 K & Company 4 X 6 Scrap pad

* 1 K & Company Rub ons

* 1 K & Company 3D Alphabet Stickers

* 1 K & Company 3D Flower Stickers

* 1 K & Company Ribbons

* 6 Acrylic Michaels Stamp sets - Series 7

Okay now...get your groove on...

p.s. you can see my creation below on my Hanna post.

Tracy,
I received a cigar box full of goodies just before Christmas, so in a way it was a Christmas gift. Anyway I used some new paper and ribbon I had received for Christmas to decorate the cigar box. I posted it on my blog site

Thanks for the chance!

I got a Cricut! I have not played with it enough yet so I am ruining a lot of designer paper! I love what I have been able to do with it and I am sure it's easier than I make it. My card is on my blog with some details and here also http://i272.photobucket.com

I received this frog stamp from my sister she found it in the nursing home craft center she use to work at so I do not know the company!But I thought the frog looked just like my boys with his nose to the window. Check out my blog! I am also wondering if you have received my RAK for JT's monthly Aloha RAK! I mailed it last week. Just wondering post man said it would take about 7 days but I forgot about the holiday. Missa
