A Giveaway for you

Happy Friday friends! I have a super giveaway for you today. Glue Arts is celebrating the new Pro+ Glue Glider. These new cartridges will flow in either direction- allowing you to push and to pull your adhesive however you want to put your adhesive down.

I am giving away a new Cartridge and Handle set, all you have to do is become a follower here on my blog and also leave me a comment sometime this weekend and I will pick a winner on Monday.

So, to give you some pretty things to talk about- how about my latest Halloween crafts using Glue Arts adhesives.
