GIVEAWAY #12 and Apologies

First I must say I am so sorry for lack of a post on Friday. I thought it was scheduled for that morning at 6:00AM but apparently not. I hate it that the sponsors for that day weren't posted when I told them they would be! I hope you will accept my apologies! Thanks to Caitlin for getting that posted for me along with Saturday’s post as I was out of town seeing my family in Ohio!

I am back in town and ready for the last 3 days of these giveaways! Before I post today’s giveaways, I want to encourage everyone to post on Valentine’s Day what they received from your exchange partner. I am telling you now so you can take a quick picture and be ready to post. We will have a linky party set up on the 14th so you can show off your goodies! We cannot wait to see!

On to today’s awesome giveaways. First we have Courtney from Swimming Into Second.






She is giving away her Valentine game pack that you can find here in her TPT store.
