To claim your prize you must email me you choice of FIVE IO products and your address  at ellentaylor38@yahoo.ca and I will have your prizes sent directly to you.

I love both cards, however...your XO 24 365 is my absolute favorite! Love those dies and stamps to make it. Really creative card, this is exactly why I follow your blog closely!

Whenever I go to CHA I always come home with a suitcase full of new goodies from various vendors and I thought I would share them with my followers!! Yes I have 15 prizes to give away today, so all of these lucky winners need to email their address to me to ellentaylor38@yahoo.ca and I will pop them in the mail on monday.
