Today we will be celebrating with a little trivia contest! For the first FIVE people who leave me a comment in the comment section with the correct answers to the following "Christmas" questions will win a free file (either electronic or precut/preassembled) of their choice!

9. In the movie "It's A Wonderful Life" how do you know that an angel has received his wings?

10. The poem commonly known as "The Night Before Christmas" was originally titled?


Oh - and if FIVE people do not get the all the answers correct - it will be the FIRST five with the MOST correct answers!

In addition to the trivia contest - I have another 75% off coupon for you. Today's coupon is for the Christmas file "Cutting Down the Tree". It is only good for the first 25 people and it is only good for TODAY (Monday, July 21th).


In order to use this coupon you will need to add this file to your shopping cart - and then use coupon code: LM_0708_23489 when you check out!!! (The coupon was not working this morning - SORRY! But it is all fixed now!!! )

Hope you have a wonderful White Christmas Day! Make sure you check back tomorrow for the Winners of today's trivia contest and there may just be another "present" for you!!
