Some happy, exciting news!

***This giveaway had ended. The winner has been posted HERE.***

It's been a crazy week with lots of happenings, changes and announcements! Let me share some of them with you.

First, Layers of Color is having a HUGE sale right now. The company is changing direction and I'll be doing the same. I can't share the details yet, but I am now working for a major stamp company and Laura (owner of LOC) and I will continue to work together there! So, even though the Layers of Color brand will be gone, our designs will not be! In fact, this new partnership will result in a wider availability of our artwork! Yay!

My second news is that my card is one of the winners in the Paper Crafts' December Gallery Challenge. I used The Craft's Meow's Season's Greetings and Telegram sets. It's so fun to see my card among the winners. Aga and Stephanie's cards are beautiful!

Finally, my biggest news is that I am now a licensed designer for Spellbinders Paper Arts. I know that you already know I've been designing dies for them. The difference this time is that I will have my own line of dies that will bear the Nina B Designs name! Please join the Spellbinders Paper Arts team as we show sneak peeks of the new dies. The Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy begins on Jan 12th!

To celebrate my wonderful news, I am having two giveaways. One here on my blog and another on my Facebook page. Please join me there as well! Thank you!

Please leave a comment below (ONE entry per person, please) and I will pick a winner next week to win these:
The Classic Postage and Classic Ricrac Edgeabilities are up for grabs! I just love the mix and match feature of this line! 

Have a great weekend, friends! I'm off to a tea party with my youngest while my sweet husband takes our oldest two horseback riding! It's a beautiful day God has given us here in Croatia.
