Happy New Year and Giveaway Time!

Aloha everyone!
I'm glad to be back and ready to start crafting. Let me bring you up to speed.  The last time I posted was just before Christmas day, my dog Hoku was improving immensely from her illness of which a cause still remains a mystery, she was put on prednisone which actually did the trick to bringing her back to her usual self.  It was truly a Christmas gift for me when she wanted to eat again and play.  Well, my schedule was definitely thrown off the track, so in order for me to get Christmas things done, I had to stay off the computer and totally concentrate on the tasks at hand. 
Now that the holiday season is over, I run smack into my birthday. celebrate my birthday, I want to have a giveaway.  I have a book and a punch to give to a couple of winners.  The book is titled "A Charming Exchange"  and the punch is a Martha Stewart punch all over the page punch.
Two prizes=Two winners!

    1. Hi Cheryl,
      I know. Since the Sisters' sample of another punch is no longer available, I learned that I could use the MS all-over punch, cut it diagonally and get a similar effect.
