Blog Candy and Some Cute Creatures cards

This Christmas, I have much to be thankful to God for in the last 9 months I've been blogging. And through your kind comments and faithful visits, He continues to show me His goodness everyday. Thank you for your part in making my blog life as exciting and blessed as it is. May you have a wonderful Christmas season, praising the eternal Savior, whose love and mercy have given us countless reasons to celebrate the holidays.

So, to celebrate Christmas, my 9 month blogaversary and 67,000+ hits on my blog, I am offering my newest GinaK Designs set, Lovely Shelf, and a sampler pack of GinaK Designs' Pure Luxury Cardstocks (as of today, there are 20 colors!) as a blog candy.
All you have to do is leave me a comment here and tell me your favorite holiday movie, so I can check it out and maybe watch it with my family during the Christmas break. If you post about my blog candy on your blog, leave another comment for more chances to win. This contest is open until next Monday, Dec 28th. All international commenters welcome!

Two cards for the Moxie Fab's All Creatures Great and Small challenge. All stamps are by Hero Arts (Jolly Christmas and Birds, Trees and Messages).

    Again- congrats! Thanks for the giveaway!
    Merry CHRISTmas:)

  11. Hi Nina!
    God sure does some amazing things, doesn't he? He has brought me closer to complete strangers through blogging, and some have become dear friends! I am thankful every day for what God has done in my life.
    Congratulations on your blogging achievements, and may God bring you many more years in the blog world! :)
    My favorite Christmas movies are the oldies, like Rudolph, Frosty, It's a Wonderful Life, and Santa Clause with Tim Allen. My all time favorite is Elf though. I laugh so much during that movie I could almost wet myself! :) My daughter loves Polar Express too. We try to watch a new Christmas movie every year on Christmas day, and this year is the movie Four Christmases. I haven't seen it, so I am anxious to watch it.
    Thanks for the chance to win that AMAZING stamp set! I love the flourishes on the items. It is beautiful!
    Have a merry and BLESSED Christmas, and enjoy your time with your family!
    Love,
    Lindsay

    My all time fav Christmas movie is a black and white oldie with Bing Crosby (though my daughter doesn't think it's that great) called The Bells of St Marys. LOVE it!! My fav scene is when the kids at the school do a nativity scene, SO CUTE!!!

  31. I haven't watched a Christmas movie for a few years, but I love the song "White Christmas" so I think "Holiday Inn" would be one of my favorites. I love Bing Crosby.

May God bless your family and your work in the new year.

  58. as a family tradition, my son 17 years, husband and 1 love to watch the christmas story. in fact, as temperatures start to dip, we here news reports of people getting their tingues stuck to metal poles and we laugh because it means they must not have seen our fav! not to say we are not concerned about others but it is like an inside joke! my personal fav is the christmas carol with alister sims as that is what generated my childhood memories of sitting with family and understanding the meaning of christmas in your heart!
