Friday Freebie - Holly & Ivy from CMM

Hi Everybody,

Here is another fabulous magazine gift from the wonderful and amazing Card Making Magic .... ME !!   (Joke)

Griff used to tell me "Don't blow your own trumpet" and I am sure that the UK readers will understand that remark. But I used to tell him if I don't blow it nobody else will ... hence the first paragraph.

I do love these gifts and this one can be used all year round for any of your projects.

This die is very snippable and you can use different portions of it to add to your floral displays and the video will show you some ideas on how I used it, and show you a fun Bokeh Effect background

If this is a gift that you would like then all you need to do is leave me a comment at the end of the post with your FULL NAME please

From those comments one name will be drawn and announced in a blog post over the weekend. 

So if you add your name then be sure to come back and check if your name is shown as you will oly have 72 hours in which to claim the gift

 More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  4. Gorgeous card & a fantastic giveaway.

    My Mum used to say “Don’t blow your own trumpet “ but I think you’re entitled to as some self promotion isn’t a bad thing, otherwise how would we know about your lovely range of craft goodies?!

  11. I don't see why you shouldn't "blow your own trumpet" occasionally
    especially with your achievements!
    I would like to be in the running for today's set!

  13. Great set of dies Christine. People are easy to criticise so I agree that you should blow your own trumpet once in while - why not!

  40. Oh Christina, that's definitely worth a full brass band!! I adore the ivy die, would set off many a card, not just for Christmas but all year round. Where can we buy it from?
    By the way, how did you and Ruby get on with the dog agility? I've been doing it with my last dog and my current dog for a number of years and they both really enjoyed it. Pippa is getting a little slow and stiff now, arthritis I think, so we don't do so much any more, but I'd recommend it for any active dog. Enjoy!

  44. I would love to win the wonderful prize, but I'm afraid I'm probably too late. While it's 10 pm here in Florida, USA, it's the next day for you, so congrats to the winner.
    Also, we have a similar saying..Don't toot your own horn. Griff probably told you that because he wanted to blow your trumpet for you.
    Take care, Christina.....Sherry Hay
