    Snarky Art, Sweet Giveaway & 50% off sale ends TOMORROW!

    Filed under Back in Stock, Giveaways, Kristin Batsel, Retro Ornaments Matchbox Kit, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, Sale

    Oh… so much to cover today! First, the winner of the drawing for a full-year subscription to the monthly kits is: Janet Gordon! Congrats! Please check your email for more info.

    Next: both of these treats from the Thanksgiving Weekend Sale end TOMORROW night (Friday night, November 30th):
    - FREE shipping for orders over $50 (for orders shipping to USA)
    - DIGITALS ON SALE – Digital versions of ALL collage sheets and ALL digital images are on sale at 50% off!

    New Artwork!

    Cheers Bitches by Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas!

    Ha! I love this trio of snarky matchboxes by Rhonda! She used a mix of both sizes of the chunky matchboxes with windows, and all start with papers from the Jingle 6×6 Pad. And, of course, each one would be the perfect gift for someone on your list, but perhaps not for all tastes.

    And, the images! There are big images in the background of each from from the Snarky Xmas Tags Collage Sheet and Sassy Santas Collage Sheet (and check Rhonda’s post for how she make the main characters pop with the use of foam tape).

    Read more about the fun matchboxes (and see lots more photos) in Rhonda’s blog post. And here is her supply list (with ideas for little props & trims, plus the boxes and the collage sheets).

    Psst: check below in the Giveaway for ANOTHER new Christmas project by a different Design Team Member!

    New Goodies!

    Back in Stock!

    Hooray for the Time for Tins for Christmas Giveaway!

    Another cute project! And I think these would be quick work for making multiples in an afternoon: “A Visit From Santa” Altered Tin by Design Team Member Kristin Batsel!

    EVERYTHING in Kristin’s Supply List is included in today’s Giveaway!

    I’m only highlighting a few of the SEVEN spiffy items in the supply list/Giveaway:
    - Christmas Repro Metal Trinket Tins (nice and deep for creating a scene inside… and you get a set of 2 different designs in the set!)
    - Christmas Trees Collage Sheet (aw… that Santa, the tree, and the little tyke/dog are from this sheet)
    - Small Retro Xmas Tags & Labels Collage Sheet (for that “HO HO HO” sign!)

    Just click on this Supply List link for photos and links to everything in Kristin’s artwork, which are also all included in the Giveaway! And see more photos of the project in Kristin blog post.

    Bonus: I’m also including a few things from Rhonda’s matchboxes:
    - Snarky Xmas Tags Collage Sheet
    - Sassy Santas Collage Sheet
    - Silver Glittered Leaf Pick (often forgotten but little snips of these glittery leaves really helped the rosettes of snowflakes & ribbons on the matchboxes snap — yes, I’m including a set of the snowflakes, too!)

    To enter the Time for Tins for Christmas Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, Friday Night, November 30, 2018). (Goodbye, November!)

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello!) correct email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!

    After midnight, I’ll randomly pick the winner (via Random.org).

    Hey, who won the Christmas Sweets Giveaway from Sunday’s newsletter? That would be Diane Sanchez! Congrats! Check your email for info.
