Partner Appreciation GIVEAWAY – Day Eight!


We're thrilled to be celebrating our friends at Jillibean Soup today! Since Jillibean Soup launched in the fall of 2008 we've been big fans! Colour, detail, design mixed with fresh, innovative and quality and you truly get an amazing company. We've work with Jillibean from the beginning including several of their designers and each season we impatiently wait to see what will be released next! At our recent trade show we fell in love with their new lines and know you'll see them in our fall issue. We also loved that when we told Jillibean Soup we were going to celebrate them, they were excited to celebrate our readers with this amazing prize – the Chit Chat Chowder collection from Jillibean Soup!

 Here are some cards designer (and author!) Kimber McGray created with this collection:
