Xyron and Clearsnap - Day Four and a Giveaway!

Happy Friday everyone!  Today is the last day of Xyron's blog hop with Clearsnap - and we're seeing RED! Check out these two fantastic projects (that both just happen to be red - who knew!), then leave us a comment and you'll be entered to win a few goodies to get you inspired!

Looking for the perfect table topper or hostess gift?  Look no further than Tina McDonald's blog!  She shares her how-to tips for turning a plain candle in to something gorgeous...using tissue paper, stamps, and less than a half hour's time.  If THAT isn't enough - she also wows us with three beautiful cards and tells you everything you need to create them yourself!

Christmas is coming, and it is never to early to think about decorating your tree! On her blog Christina Heeren tells you everything you'll need to create this vintage-looking ornament, and she also shares some Thanksgiving table toppers and a Veteran's Day card. So many great ideas all in one spot - head on over and check it out!

Before you go, DO NOT miss the fabulous projects that are on the Clearsnap blog today! They are stunning! Now that you've got all these fantastic ideas from Clearsnap and Xyron we want to give you the tools you'll need to create them.  Clearsnap is having a giveaway on their blog, and we are having one here on ours!  Leave us a comment and one lucky winner will receive a prize pack with an assortment of Clearsnap goodies (ink pads, glitter, spritz and more!) and a Xyron 1.5" Create-A-Sticker.  Deadline to enter is Midnight Pacific Time on Sunday September 23rd, and the winner will be announced on my Facebook page first thing Monday morning!  Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
