Christmas in July Giveaway!

Hey, everybody! Let's celebrate the end of Christmas in July with a giveaway!
I have a set of never–been–used Susan Branch brass stencils, and instead of stashing them away for a rainy day, I want you to have them.

I whipped up the wreath card in about 10 minutes using water–based markers. I scribbled the marker onto a piece of acetate and used the tiny stencil brush to pick up the wet ink and swirl it through the stencil.

How to Enter the Giveaway  Closed
for Eight Susan Branch brass stencils, a mini stencil brush, and an embossing tool*:

Just leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite holiday is and why.

Our favorite holiday is Halloween. We're known as the Spider House. Our neighbors turn their porch lights off early on Halloween, but we keep ours on to lure in our "victims." My husband drilled a hole in my entryway ceiling to run a fishing line out to the porch. Why? All the better to drop a big hairy spider on your head. He streams the screams live over the Internet.

I'll draw from all entries for the stencils on Tuesday, August 7, at noon U.S. Central time. C'mon, you can still do Christmas in August!

Thanks for sticking with me through this crazy, crafty experiment,

  1. Those stencils are so fun! Thanks for the fun giveaway! Christmas is by far my favorite, but I do love holidays in general!

  2. Ex-New-Orleanian here, y'all. So what else could my favorite holiday be but Mardi Gras. Parades for weeks! But you can rest when you want to, because it lasts so-o-o long.
    Also, Mardi Gras colors are my favorite combo - purple, green and gold. What's not to love (except when your kid is little and can't accept the fact that one doesn't *have* to watch *every* parade)? But all that dancin' in the street can really pick ya up!

  3. I'd love to win these stencils. I can't seem to find anything like them here. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. You have family around without the stress of buying presents or extensive decorating. Then there is always the anticipation of the upcoming Christmas season, which I refuse to start until Thanksgiving is past.


Tell me what you think!
