A Challenge and Swiss Dots Blog Candy!

The Challenge - Remember the Criss Cross Gift Card tutorial I made a few weeks ago? Well, your challenge is to use that tutorial to make one of your own. Be sure to link up to it in a comment so we can all see what you create.

Here is one I made and if you would like to see another sample, head over to my sister's blog to see one that she made.

The Candy - I put together a small assortment of goodies that you can win. Up for grabs is a Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, two yards of Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched ribbon from Stampin' Up, two Studio G stamp sets and a pack of Craft Essentials 3 X 3 textured note cards and envelopes (these are the same note cards I used for this project).

There are two ways to win. First, you can enter by leaving a comment on this post. Second, if you participate in the challenge above and post a link to your project, I will enter your name two more times, so that will triple your odds of winning.

The deadline to enter this contest is Thursday, June 5 at 8pm my time (PST). That is one week from today. I will choose a winner by using Random.org or, if that proves beyond my technical capability, I will simply draw a name from a hat, box, bowl or whatever is handy.

I have the swiss dots, but don't have the rest, so I will enter. I don't have any birthdays coming up until a couple of months later, but I will remember to come back here to checkout your tutorial when I need it.
