So, for example, if you made a holiday card and used the linky in yesterday's post you are automatically entered into today's giveaway!  Now just leave a comment on THIS post and you will have two chances to win today's giveaway!

I'll be picking and posting the winner on Tuesday!

My daughter (the 6 year old) and I just love using these brass plates.
 We mostly use them as stencils but they are great for embossing too.
I actually used mine to create the background paper for today's card.

 Here's my Whimsical Tree card!

Christmas Tree was cut at 3 3/4".
I thought this fun, whimsical tree went perfectly with the patterened paper.

Other Cardstock / Paper:  DP from DCWV " 'Tis the Season" Stack, Yo Yo Yellow, Creamy Caramel, Black
