Winner Announcement for January 9th Giveaways!

Well hello there and a happy Saturday to you all!  I don't know about where you live, but where I live it has been FREEZING all week.  Our windchill factors have been dipping into the -30s (that is Celsius of course--for all you Fahrenheiters that would be = to -22 degrees) and to top it off we just got a whole load of snow dumped on us yesterday!!!  Yikes!  Winter has definitely made itself known.  Thus, it is a good thing that Kris released some punny sets last week--I can warm up from laughing at all her punny jokes!

Right now, it is time to share the names of the winners from those new release giveaways!  Of course first up I want to share a card I created with one of the sets from the new release...

Time to Pick our Winners!!!
Readers had the opportunity to leave a comment for their chance to win one of three different prizes.

For the Otter Be Mine set and the Otter Say Hello set, offered up HERE, readers were asked to answer the following question:  What do you look forward to in this new year?

There were so many great answers.  Most people wanted to spend more time with family and friends and of course more time crafting!  Several hoped for good health. There were many other wonderful responses as well that you should check out.  Just click HERE and scroll down to the comments to read them.
