In Honor of Sophie . . . A Giveaway

My gypsy is going to be headed back to Provo Craft tomorrow for replacement.  Unfortunately this is my second device and it is slowly dying and doing wacky things.  I've been holding off on sending it back, but well, it's time.  So, in honor of my favorite cartridge at the moment - Sophie - I decided to make one final card before I am gypsyless for the next few weeks.  I made this card for a friend who lives far away and who I miss dearly.  We don't do as good as a job as we should at keeping in touch but I am making a better effort this year to keep up.   As you can see, I am still rocking the negative images.  Don't look for this to end anytime soon!






Recipe:
Paper:  K & Company Citronella, American Cardstock
Cricut Cartridges:  Sophie, Art Philosophy
Spellbinders:  Beaded Ovals
Verve Stamps:  Bloom & Grow
Stick Pin:  Caroline's Cartography
Ink:  Stampin' Up
Ribbon:  My Stash
Pearls:  My Stash
Liquid Pearls:  Buttercup and Silver


And now for the giveaway - I recently reached a milestone of 200 followers. In fact I think that happened sometime last week.  I've been blogging for a little less than a year and I have been humbled by the wonderful comments I have received over the days and months for my work, and well, everything that goes into this blog.  So, in honor of that support, I am giving away a Sophie cartridge.  It's a Cricut Circle exclusive - you can't buy it in stores, and it is truly one of the best Cricut cartridges out there.  

So, here's the deal.  Leave a comment at the end of this post with a way to contact you - blog, email, etc.  and you are entered to win. (only one entry per person please) That's it.  No hurdles to jump through - no requirement for following my blog, joining by email, subscribing to my RSS feed etc.  I only want you to do those things if you really want to keep up with what I post here.  I will keep this giveaway open until Saturday, January 21st at 10:00 a.m. EST.  Also, if you have Sophie and aren't interested in the cartridge but still want to comment, please just leave a note saying that you don't want to be included in the giveaway.  

Thanks So Very Much to everyone for the past ten months!
