 Welcome to Thursday’s treasures 100th link Party!!!

Thursday's Treasures features

Can you believe it? Debi started this party off and graciously allowed Christie and I to join in along the way. I’m so glad she did. We wanted to do a little thank you. Just from us girls to you, for coming back every week and sharing your talent with us.

Thursday's Treasures 100 Party

So how about a $60.00 gift certificate to Amazon. First off, this is open to US and Canada. What would you buy with $60 free dollars? I was looking at my wish list and there are quite a few things I could knock off like a Donut Pan, a new blender (I say a little prayer every time I use mine but it is 20 years old.) How about getting a head start on your holiday shopping?

Entering is easy, just follow along on the Rafflecopter.
