If that’s not amazing enough, we also have a really fun surprise for two runner up winners that we will draw on October 7th. These two lucky people will also receive the new Wild Orchid Cricut Explore machine with pre-loaded content, and all three winners (the grand prize winner and two runners up) will get to participate in an online Google Hangout with me!! You’ll have a chance to chat with me live via YouTube where we talk about all things Anna Griffin and Cricut. Yay!

Were you able to answer all 6 clues that we’ve given you so far?  Each clue you answered earned you one additional entry into the giveaway. Our last and final clue is going to require a little bit more work than the others, but it’s going to be really fun.

For Clue #7, we want you to upload a photo of something you’ve been inspired to make since the beginning of our previews. It can be a card, a layout, a treat bag or gift tag just to name a few. The possibilities are endless. And what better time to start than World Card Making Day!

For example, we’ve been really inspired by the color purple (thanks to Cricut) and beautiful bows lately, so we created this layout:
