Final Hour – The Grand Prize! (and the Final Hour of DVD Sale!)

I can’t believe 5:00pm (EST) is already HERE!!!!  This has been such an insanely fun day and I tell you what I am up and living on my Starbucks Lattes at this point from all the round the clock shopping I’ve been doing as well as these hourly posts!

So here it is …. the moment you have all been waiting for … the BIGGEST Giveaway EVER on Above Rubies Studio …. Call your family, your friends, you co-workers, your neighbors…. HERE WE GO!

I KNEW you wouldn’t be able to believe it!!!!

To win this GRAND PRIZE follow these rules!

1) Comment on this blog post right below where it says comment!

2) Use this form HERE to get your “Personal Link” which gives you EXTRA CHANCES TO WIN by spreading the word to your family, friends and co-workers about the Cricut A to Z DVD.

EACH friend that uses your personal link will count as an EXTRA ENTRY for ALL of the giveaways that you comment on. For example, if you comment on 5 of today’s giveaways and send an email with your personal link to 10 of your friends (and they click it), you will get 10 extra entries in ALL 5 giveaways!

The more friends you give your personal link to, the more entries you will get in ALL the prizes you’ve commented on throughout the day. Remember, you can only enter a persons email address ONCE during this entry period! (Emailing the same person more than once will disqualify that entry)

NOTE: We will be counting your extra entries all weekend so that the people you send your personal link to will have time to get the email and click on your link.

3) Enjoy the day!

*Contest period ends 12am (EST) Nov. 30, 2009 MONDAY am – Anyone is eligible to participate in this giveaway, however those entering from outside the United States will need to pay the difference in shipping costs that are over our max amount to their location.
