  30. I LIKED your facebook page and subscribed to your blog email. Thanks for the chance to win. I am a NEWBIE to cricut and scrapbooking/card making. Going to be doing some charity work making cards for cancer patients, children's hospitals and those serving us overseas as well as the survivors of the deceased from overseas. Been getting alot of donations from people (paper, etc) so would love a chance to win this giveaway as this cartridge would be great for the kids cards we plan on doing. Just got a great deal on expressions machine (NEW) that someone had purchased and never used. Need to get an imagine but the expressions will get us going for now. Thanks again for the chance to win this. If I win, it will truly support our cause which we in our group believe is a good one.

    Thanks much !
