All About the GIVEAWAY today!!!

Christmas Trees 13 and 14 start back on Monday :)

SOOOOO...Here its is!  The NEW GIVEAWAY!!!  There will be 3 winners total!  Better odds for all!  The Red and Green tree with a Twist of Lime seemed to be a FAVORITE to many, so I figured I would make a CUSTOM Floral in that color scheme...

The First prize is this Custom Floral, its REALLY pretty and I kinda wanted to keep it for myself, Hhhm!

 Its in a pretty, buffed silver container

 I used some GORGEOUS flocked pine with pinecones, BEAUTIFUL Velvet Poinsettias, some FUN lime green glitter-ee sprigs and added some white ball ornaments!  Its truly gorgeous and will fit in with almost ANY decor you might have!


 Prize 2 is a GREAT cookbook with a Caramel Scented WoodWick candle and DARLIN Rooster salt and pepper shakers!   LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this prize!


 And prize 3 is another cookbook with an Orange Grove scented WoodWick candle and more of those DARLIN Rooster salt and pepper shakers!  CRAAAAAZY about this prize too! 


 So...HOW TO WIN!

1)  Be a Google Follower ...to the left of my page  (if you already follow-you are in for the win)  
2) Grab My BUTTON and add it to your page (I WILL Grab your button back-I PROMISE!  Again, if you have already added my Button to your page-you are in for the win) If your not a Blogger, tell me in my comments
3) Click my FaceBook Network Button and Follow (if you are NOT on FaceBook-you are still in for win)

MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!! 
 You HAVE TO leave me a COMMENT and LET ME KNOW you are now Google following, AND that you have added MY BUTTON TO YOUR PAGE) and that you are FaceBook following!

There is NOT anyone doing this Giveaway with me!  IM SOLO on this one...So its 3 SUPER EASY and QUICK  steps, and  then  LEAVING me a COMMENT to KEEP TRACK of you!

LASTLY...The prizes are all going to be "Luck of the Draw" but I have put together 3 ( THREE )  to better the odds!  Im CRAZY about all the new friends I have made over the last couple of months while Blogging and want this to be a FUN thing..So ONLY DO THIS if you choose to!!!!  :)

GOOD LUCK!  I will be running this GIVEAWAY till the MONDAY after Thanksgiving, November 29th,  then will announce the winners on that tuesday, November 30th and will SHIP IMMEDATELY so the winners will have their prize THAT WEEK!

Again, GOOD LUCK and I look forward to getting to know all my new friends even better!!! LUVS!

Blessings  xoxokara

Heres what I used to make the Custom Floral:

Wire Cutters, Hotglue gun...

This super pretty Brushed silver container With a block of foam secured in the container..

These flocked pine picks...GORGEOUS!

These SUPER fun and whimsy, Pale Lime Glitter sprigs...

A bush of these GORGEOUS red velvet poinsettias...LUX!

Some of these preboxed (BARGAIN)  ball ornaments...



                                                                           Voila!!!!


This Floral would retail for around $90.00-$95.00 in my Store...
You DIY ers...give it a shot!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I just got done looking at all your Christmas trees. They are all fantastic. I have become a new follower.

Jane said...

Nice arrangement. I used to teach "how to" classes in floral design...and I never had a class. It's relatively easy, isn't it. You just have to be open to try and try again... It was always rewarding when one of my students created something she loved...the joy on her face said it all....
