AN OBSESSION REVISTED AND A GIVEAWAY!

so...not sure if you remember...but a while ago...i had a bit of a problem with making pint sized magnet boards...you know...if you take galvanized roof flashing...make sure it's galvanized and not aluminum...it won't work!...found out the hard way...add some patterned paper...round some corners with corner chompers...add a little ribbon...do up some magnets...and voila...instant cuteness...see...check out some of my older posts on the subject...well...seems that problem has resurfaced!...but luckily for me...i already have like 150 if those metal pieces lying around...yeah...you read that right...

if you're curious to know how the madness all started...i found this vid from chic 'n stratch on how to do up these little cuties...and it just took on a life of it's own...lol..

this time i mixed it up though...instead of doing the normal ribbon...i used a little tulle...pretty nifty, huh?...and...that's not your average patterned paper...i did that up myself on the cricut imagine using the better together cartridge...what a cool tool that thing is!...

 
i didn't stop using my imagine at the paper...oh no!...see these magnets?...yeppers...did those on there too!...with some printable shrinky dink material!...just printed and cut to the size....well...the machine did all the work...lol...and then shrinked 'em up in the oven for a couple of minutes!...

 
then slapped a magnet on the back!...cute and fast!...that's how i like my projects!...now can you understand how i developed a problem with these?...lol...


oh...and did you see the total cuteness of the sentiment that i had stamped?...well...that's from one of my pink stamper's newest sets...sweetest cupcakes...check 'em out...adorable...right?...


ok...here's where the giveaway part happens...robyn...aka...my pink stamper...sent me a set of these stamps...so that i could give 'em away to one of my lucky readers!...aka...you!...how's that sound?...and of course...i might have to throw a little something something in there too...but i'm not telling...it's a surprise!...

so...this is how it'll work...just leave a comment below...letting me know your contact info...and you'll be entered!...it's as simple as that!...i'll give you until friday april 15th at 8 pm eastern standard time to enter...your taxes should already be in by that time...lol...then i'll randomly choose the lucky winner!...all i ask is that you only leave one comment per person...i want to give everyone a fair shot!...

bestest of luck to ya!...

Long time blog-lurker, first time commenter. LOVE these little boards, I've been sucked into the addiction! I use pre-made tin signs with those folky little things on them, "Dad's Garage" and what-not. More expensive, but they work.
