Seasons Giving Blog Hop 2017

*** Giveaway is now closed****




Hello friends!! Another year just went by, now we are getting ready to start a brand new one and hope a much better one.
From my side, my crafting year has been great, up and downs as always, by I met new crafty people, made new friends and got into amazing Design Teams!
On the personal side, I was able to go to Peru and see my family after almost 13 years!! We, as a family, spent an entire month having a blast! I ate a bit too much and got sick, lol, but after a day of rest and chicken soup I was up and running again!!

My wish for next year is to craft more and stress less!! Send more cards and meet more friends!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, leave comments, pin my cards and share them with other. I invite you to follow my Crafty Facebook page, Instagram (I share crafts and nature pictures) and hopefully I will brave myself and start making videos and posting them on YouTube 

Let me share with you what Instagram chose as my favorite 9 of 2017 and I agree too!


Now, as an appreciation for your visits, let me show you what I have for you as a Thank you!!
Prize includes:
Downton Abbey DVD Collection (Brand new)
**This is a paper crafting collection for Crafter's Companion, not TV series, sorry for the confusion**
Downton Abbey Stamp Set. (Brand new)
Downton Abbey Paper Pack (few pages used, almost brand new)
Spectrum Noir Colorista 2 pack set (Brand new)
Varity Rose Coloring Pad (I took one page, like brand new)

** The Downton Abbey Collection is retired and not available in stores anymore, it is a beautiful elegant collection***

All you have to do to win this prize is leave a comment here, anything goes {wink, wink}
Giveaway will be open until Saturday, Jan. 6th (midnight PST) and winner will be posted on Monday, January 8th.

Here is the list of participants!


Happy New Year and the best for you in the 2018!!
Blessings to all.
