It's Time for a Valentine Give-Away ... "Raspberry Truffle"

"Raspberry Truffle" is the perfect name for this deliciously decadent Hang Up. The dark chocolaty color and rich raspberry swirls of this tote shout 'Be My Valentine'. As if that isn't enough, in the design of the fabric flowers and lace are thrown in for added lusciousness! Chocolate. Raspberries. Lace. Flowers. It's appropriate that your heart go pitter-patter over this little Valentine!

As added incentive to get men to enter their names for that special woman in his life, I might just have to send along a real "Raspberry Truffle" as an added prize if a man wins the contest. (See rules of the contest below.)

These fabrics come from Studio e Fabrics -- this particular line is called "Chelsea Lace." I used three complimentary fabrics from this line for "Raspberry Truffle" -- two on the outside of the tote and the third as the lining. So fun and whimsical and hot!

This Give-Away will be much like those in the past. The contest will run until midnight Sunday, February 8th. Monday morning, February 9th, the winner of the contest will be announced. One name will be chosen from all those entered. Don't be shy!

The rules of the contest are as follows:
1) The participants must live within the continental U.S. I will provide the postage.
2.) Each person that makes a comment below will have her name entered in the Tote Give-Away contest. If you put a "shout out" on your blog by Friday, February 6th, about the contest and come back and let me know through another comment your name will be entered 3 more times.
3.) Any male that enters this contest to give "Raspberry Truffle" to a special woman in his life gets his name entered three times!
4.) No anonymous comments, please. If you are not a friend, relative, or blogging buddy that I already know and love, please leave your name and a way for me to contact you -- specifically an email address. If I don't have any way to contact you, your name will not be eligible.
5.) This tote is not meant for resale. Only those intending to use the tote for personal use may register to win.

Scroll down to see other Hang Ups (totes) and Dwipes that are currently available for purchase. Good luck!

I tried to comment and it didn't work. I will try again
Gramee says there is a give away for a purse. If i come give hher a good word it will give her more chances of winning. I was thinking it looks like your giving away candy not a purse. She says a purse. Well I hope this gives Gramee a better chance. I kinda like her. grumpy

My wife just told me about this bag and since her birthday is the 12th and then Valentine's is two days later, I could really score some points if I won it for her.

SUZAG said...

What a beautiful tote and from the looks of it, beautiful "craftwomanship"! I would love to win this!

Anonymous said...

OK, so you don't know me, but my twin sister, Kristen Robertson just won one of your bags and I was insanely jealous! Not because twins are naturally competitive, of course, but because it is a great bag! I can think of a million places to take it--starting with church!

Brandon said...

After my wife has been nagging (kidding!) me to enter this for her...I will! It would make her Valentine's Day and Anniversary to win!

She's Seeryus Mama, so I guess that makes me Seeryus Dad.

My hubby told me there was no way he was posting a comment for a chance to win. He refuses to blog...he has yet to bring home the winning lottery ticket! Geez!

bettyd said...

Love the color pattern on this tote. Nope, my hubby won't be blogging unless maybe you give away power tools. He did suggest I go ahead and just enter for him ... but that's not right.

Family said...

No way are you serious! Chelsea Lace is only Fitting for a gal with the name of Chelsea and my wife is just the one! Her favorite truffle btw is RASPBERRY. We did not see this in time for the extra shout outs but still count us in as she just gave away a bag as well! THANKS
