The winner of the drawing for the October 31st cartridge is ........ "Larmabeee" !!
I will be mailing it out to you very soon !! 
Thank you all for participating in the contest...and there will be another one coming up soon for a Christmas Scrapbooking package. So, keep watching my Blog for that announcement. In the meantime, each person who purchases an item from my Etsy store in the category of "CHRISTMAS SHOPPE" will receive an entry into the drawing beginning today ! 
More on that later....
Here are a couple of peeks at what I am currently crafting for my Cricut Message Board Swap called "Tags, Bags, Boxes and More" ....this one is a Thanksgiving Gift bag, tag and card set that I am mailing out today for my partner...I did a bit of machine stitching on this one with a wide Zig-Zag stitch to make it look a little more rustic and added some plain raffia for a "bow" and a few other embellishments. The paper is from DCWV Seasons Collection and also from the Paper Company. The first photo is the front of the set, then there is a closeup view of the bag front, and the last photo is the back of the set... As you can see, I don't believe in not finishing the backs of things !!
