Friendship Garden Market Bag Set!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

This is my last and best giveaway for this bloggy giveaways carnival! And I know you are wondering "how can she do that, not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4! Four awesome giveaways in one carnival week?"

Well let me tell you. I guess I got carried away with the fun of it because this is my first carnival and I crave attention of the positive kind? That is all that I can figure out. And it has been a nice diversion from working on baby quilt kits, which is what pays the bills. But bags are so much more fun.

So here for the taking is a new market bag and wallet set that I whipped up yesterday for you. It is called "Friendship Garden" so if you are like me and dreaming of spring flowers and farmers markets this will definitely cheer you up. I hope that this bag will inspire some "spring fever" and you will want to enter to win it for yourself or a gardening friend.

I added a cute bow to tie on the top of the bag but it is removeable if you are not a bow kind of gal. Otherwise it is just a big lined A line bag with one pocket inside to keep your phone and keys handy and long padded straps. You can stuff a lot of stuff in here and carry it comfortably on your shoulder! The wallet is a quilted patchwork and it has a couple of credit card slots and a bill divider inside. It is raggy on the edges, although I am not sure that shows up so good in the pictures. But believe me when I say it is cute and totally one of a kind because I designed the pattern myself.

So all you have to do to be ready for your spring shopping is enter to win by leaving me a "spring fever" comment. And click on my blog home if you haven't entered my other giveaways. I have one on The Rainbow Creek Kitchen too. See the fine print below for additional details.

This giveaway is open to US and Canada.

Post a comment before midnight Sunday Feb. 1st 2009 to enter.

Additional entries: Follow me! Add me to your blog list or tweet this giveaway. Leave a comment to tell me you added me.

Please be sure that I have a valid email contact to notify you if you win.

Winner will also be anounced here at Up The Rainbow Creek on Monday, Feb. 2nd 2009.
