Day 4 Theme & Giveaway: Halloween

Filed under Cat's Away... 2012, Giveaways, Halloween, Sale

Hey, it’s Day 4 of the While the Cat’s Away… Giveaways! And today’s theme is Halloween?!. (Yes, I know, hardly the right time of year, but…)

This kit started off with some sold out stickers sets (and stencils, and die-cut chipboard), then kind of veered into Halloween territory. In addition to the ENTIRE Stickers – Paper & Misc. and Stickers – Metallic sections both being on sale today, I’ve just added 4 New! Sets of Thin Border Stickers (and put them on sale, too)! (And the black set is included in the kit!)

If you’re wondering which of those Halloween Collage Sheets I included in the kit, here’s the list (and all 4 are On Sale!):
Halloween Divination
Halloween #1
Telltale Heart

And I’ve included an unmounted set of the Poison Rubber Stamp Set and they’re on sale, too!

Here’s how these While the Cat’s Away DAILY Sales and Giveaways will work: I’ve gathered items around a theme (related to whatever’s on sale today) and put together a Giveaway Kit that will be awarded to one lucky person (click on the photos at right to see even more of the Halloween Giveaway Kit).

To enter the Halloween Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post (don’t forget to leave your email address, too, so I can contact the winner; note, your email address does not need to be made public). Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!

After midnight I’ll randomly pick the previous day’s winner (via So make sure to check back tomorrow to see who won and to see what’s on offer for Day 5 of the Sales & Giveaways!

More info on the Holiday Closure & Giveaway Rules (including how you can get entered twice in each day’s drawing).

And please remember: Our offices are now closed. The whole “While the Cat’s Away” theme is ’cause I’m the only one here! For more info about shipping (which will start when the staff are all back on 1/2/13) and the sale in general, please see the While the Cat’s Away…” Daily Giveaways: Year 5! overview page.
