8)  Blank Canvas cards from Christina @ Tico&Tina.  Why is this a FANTASTIC win?   BlankCanvas™ cards are a fun and unique way to say what YOU want to say - they will work for any occasion because they're just waiting for your choice of words or picture on the canvas in a fun location - yes, these are for real, no Photoshopping wizardry :) The blank canvas is a symbol to us of how we choose to look at life, and our tag line, "Life is a blank canvas - paint an adventure!", is what we are about - we want to encourage everyone to look at their life as an adventure, too! (this is one example of having to choose to see the adventure not long ago!)  Visit the shop here.  

PS You ever meet someone who has this weird ability to see EXACTLY what's in your head pretty much at all times?  That's who Christina is to me!
