Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop! Paulina has released some fun new dies and I chose to feature the multi-window for a fun shaker card! It’s so cool that you can rotate the window, depending on the type of window you want–I went vertical for this one!

And, those little yellow sequins just made me thing of sunshine so this happy little scene is where my brain went!

Awesome news!

My friend and fellow cardmaker, Cristina Kowalczyk, has some exciting news. She’s also an author (she writes under her maiden name – Cristina Henriquez), and her novel, The Book of Unknown Americans, comes out TODAY! To celebrate, I, along with a few other crafty friends, are helping her spread the word about her book.

 

Henríquez 12.11

Ben Fountain said it was “a triumph of storytelling,” Heidi Julavits called it “extraordinary,” and Amazon editor Chris Schluep chose it as his “must read for summer,” saying, “This novel snuck up on me. It’s moving and beautifully written, never overwrought, and I read it virtually in one sitting. It’s compelling, tragic, sometimes funny, uplifting and heart-wrenching. I can’t stop thinking about these people.”

Cristina is giving away 5 signed, first-edition copies of The Book of Unknown Americans. And because this is all about spreading the word, there are four ways to enter.

  1. Tweet about The Book of Unknown Americans (#UnknownAmericans)
  2. Write a Facebook post telling your friends about the book
  3. Pin the cover of the book on Pinterest
  4. Or simply leave a comment on Cristina’s blog

If you do all four of those, that’s four entries! (On Cristina’s blog, submit one comment per entry. For example: “I tweeted!” “I put it on FB!” “I pinned it!” etc.)

From all the comments on her blog, Cristina will choose 5 people to win a copy of the novel. Plus, one lucky person will win the grand prize, a signed book plus a giant stash of craft supplies – stamps, dies, inks, you name it!

For more info about the book and other ways that you can show your support, head over to Cristina’s blog. (comments here are closed because you need to go to Cristina’s blog to comment!)

So proud of my friend–this is such an amazing accomplishment!

Congratulations, chica!!! Standin’ “O”!!!
