~CHRISTMAS Give-A-Way - Something SPECIAL Just For You~

ENTER BY December 6, 2009 at 5:00 PM
WINNER ANNOUNCED - December 7, 2009

It doesn't seem possible that Christmas 2009 is right around the corner! As we usher in the joy and excitement of the Holiday Season I anxiously await the day when I celebrate the birth of my Savior.

Like many of you I LOVE CHRISTMAS! I love it not only for what it represents to me personally, but I love the decorations, the food, the singing and caroling, the overdue visits with friends and neighbors as well as the gathering together of my ever growing family... I absolutely love it all~ I am very blessed indeed!

For my very first Christmas Give-A-Way I chose a pretty pink Cottage Pillow showcasing a hand cross stitched sentiment that simply says, "Merry Christmas". ONE very special person will win this lovely Pillow*... It's going to be fun! (*No Purchase Necessary - *No Cash Value).

Now...the rules are fairly simple, but a bit different than for my past Give-A-Ways. You will have up to four chances to win...

Here goes:

1. FOLLOW MY BLOG you will be entered ONE TIME.

2. POST about THIS CHRISTMAS Give-A-Way on YOUR BLOG and LINK BACK TO MY BLOG you will be entered a SECOND TIME (you must let me know you have done this!).

3. POST a Comment on THIS POST or ANY OTHER POST up until the cutoff date above and I'll enter you a THIRD TIME.

4. Add my PINK ROSE BUTTON to your SIDE BAR and I'll enter you a FOURTH TIME (you must let me now you have done this!).

Easy as that!

Again, the Cut-Off date for entering the Drawing is December 6th at 5:00 PM (Central Time). Any comments and/or links made after that time will not be included. The Winner will be announced in a POST on December 7th, 2009.

Thank you for playing along. May the best and most deserving Blogger WIN!

Blessings and Love~Rebecca
