EXCITING NEWS! Christmas is coming early for someone and it could be YOU! This week you have the chance to win an AMAZING PRIZE PACKAGE you won't want to miss out on. Heartfelt Creations has so generously donated the grand prize for this week's Joan's Garden's 25th Challenge. This prize package includes 14 stamp sets and 3 Heartfelt Creations matching Dies with a value of over $286. In addition to this fabulous grand prize, there will also be additional prize packages from Joan's Garden's to give you 3 additional chances to win.
