Day 7 Theme & Giveaway: Pink Roses

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

Hey, it’s Day 7 (the final day) of the While the Cat’s Away… Giveaways! And today’s theme is Pink Roses.

This kit started with 2 New! colors of Small Organza Ribbon Roses and then just kept getting more and more PINK. (Both colors of the ribbon roses are on sale, and are included in the kit!)

And, in addition to the ENTIRE Charms – Flowers/Leaves section being on sale today, a few more things from the kit are on sale:
English Rose 6×6 Paper Pad
Pink/White Mini Cording
3-Petal Glass Flowers
Rose Beads – 2 Sizes

If you’re wondering which Floral Collage Sheets I included in the kit, here’s the list (and all 5 are On Sale!):
The Lovely Garden
English Rose
Seed Catalog ATCs
Roses & Fans
Pink Roses

I’ve had fun putting together kits this last week (and a little sad it’s over). But just wait till you see what’s in store regarding kits in this Sunday’s newsletter!

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 Pink Roses Giveaway Kit).
