Giveaway popularity

I have seen several blogging giveaways lately and think it is a great idea.
So I have decided to do one myself. I would like to pick randomly from comment makers a chance to win a set of handmade cards, nothing fancy, but a chance to get a little something to make the season bright.
Once the winner is chosen we'll email for address info. Nov 21st midnight deadline

I've been experimenting with the art of embroidery. I guess it started with my grandmother teaching me to hand sew and mend-first pull about an arms length of thread off the spool make a knot or three stitches together to hold the thread in place, then you are ready to go.
I remember as a teenager sewing random patches and then buttons and cleverly disguising holes with decorative stitches and ribbons.
In the last year or so I've started collecting hoops and 'painting' with thread. Here are some examples.
