2 UFO Finishes!!! Plus 2 Giveaways!!!

I had a VERY productive week!!!!  I was able to finish 2 UFO's.  My goal for February it work on all my one page UFO's projects.  This way I can focus on my HUGE  UFO projects in the coming months along with finally getting to start some newer projects that I have been wanting to stitch.  I won't have that stitchers guilt for having tons of UFO's around.  I think it my teacher brain that tells me to finish what I start! 

My first UFO finish is my Ozark Sampler House window.  It came in a kit and I decided to change out all the threads.  I turned it into a Disney Christmas scene!!  I ordered a keychain off ebay, took it apart and used the characters on the house. I found the buttons in a pack at Hobby Lobby.  I cut off the button hook and then glued them onto the design.

Ozark Sampler Houses

Mickey's House

Donald's House

Minnie's House
Second UFO finish is a cupcake design that I found in a magazine.  I changed all these threads also, I just can't help myself!  I think this will be a pillow when I am finished.


First giveaway:
I would like the cupcake patterns to go to a new home.  If you would like to be entered in this drawing leave a comment with your favorite cupcake flavor , your name, and your email address!!!

Second Giveaway:
I am giving away the House pattern and all the threads that came in the kit.You can see what the original design was suppose to look like before I got crazy and changed the threads.    The only thing not included is the fabric.  My design is stitched on 7 ct. I believe but you can use any type of fabric you like. 
To enter this drawing leave your name, favorite disney character along with your email address!!!!

If you want to enter both...answer both questions in one comment!

The cupcakes are so cute, and the houses are neat!

I would like to enter in to this for both if your okay with a new viewer entering.

Cupcakes: My Daughter, Rebecca, wants this one mostly, she loves the colours and her favorite cupcakes are the vanilla Rainbow ones my mother makes with her. She also says that it would be a cute pillow with her pink cupcake fabric on the back!

The houses are so cute, I personally LOVE donald duck.

Thank you so much.
