christmas in july GIVEAWAY

---This giveaway has closed. Thanks so much to all who entered! I'll announce the winner by Friday night, July 30th!---


Etsy, the site we all know and love, has been having quite the Christmas in July sale this month. It inspired me to host a giveaway here at Redbud. Mainly because it is never too early to think about Christmas, and also because giveaways are FUN! 

In honor of Etsy, I decided to ask my dear friend Penny from Gracey May to join me in this little giveaway. Oh, my goodness, is she talented. Her embroidery is uniquely creative, perfectly vintage, absolutely beautiful...I could go on and on. 


Here are some things she made by hand for my girls. I cannot wait to see them wear their Best Friends necklace shirts and take entirely too many pictures. And that sweet little bird picture? It is so sweet that the only place it could possibly belong is above the bed of a sweet sleeping baby girl.


So, for this giveaway, the lucky winner will be come away with a

$50 Redbud Designs Gift Certificate
and
$20 Gracey May Etsy Shop Credit!

Imagine the possibilities. Keep them for yourself or use them as gifts for those you love. As you know, my wait list is closed for a bit, but that Redbud gift certificate might come in handy for this year's Christmas card design...or maybe a fresh fall blog design. 

To enter, go visit Penny's shop and leave a comment here telling me what item (or items!) that you love.

 - OH! And the first one to correctly guess the movie that the quote on the blue embroidered hoop in the top right corner is from gets their entries DOUBLED!!  **update: yes, Jenna, it is "Say Anything"! way to go! :)


That is up to 9 entries (18 if you guess the movie)! Please leave a separate comment for each entry.

This giveaway will end Thursday, July 29th, at midnight central time. Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck!
