A Confession and a Giveaway

I have a confession to make- I lied to my husband. Well It was more of an omission than a lie and done with the best intentions. On my birthday he gave me the book Buttons and Beads by Erika Knight and said "It was the one you were looking at the other day wasn't it?" " yes darling" I said. What I didn't add was that I'd already brought it.
So I have a brand new copy of this lovely book which I decided I would give as a prize in my first giveaway when I reached 25 followers and here we are.

I will send this book and some buttons and beads to the first out of the hat on the 14th August.
To Qualify just

1) leave me a comment below; or

2) Become a follower/ already a follower( you are automatically entered);or

3)I'm afraid I haven't worked out how to make up a button so if you mention it in one of your posts let me know and I'll enter you again.

Good Luck to you all.
