Bloggy Giveaway Carnival - Winter '08 Edition

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all of you who came by and especially for those of you who left fun comments. Please drop by again. The lucky winner is announced here.


It's the Winter Editon of Bloggy Giveaways Carnival. Yup, it's another blogland wide giveaway! Exactly what I need to get my mind off the -28* Celcius day. Folks, that -18.4* in Farenheit. Oh and it get's better. We have a wind chill warning. An artic wind chill warning which is making the temperature feel like, are you ready? -44* Celcius. That would be -47.2* F. Brrrr.


So to make me feel better, I'm giving away a little something that makes me smile and gives me warm fuzzies when someone gives it to me. I mentioned it here and so many of you commented on it I thought I'd make someone else smile by getting their chocolate and coffee fix all in one delicious little bite. I'm giving away a box of Bernard Callebaut Chocolate Coated Coffee Beans.


If you love chocolate and you love coffee and you'd like a little explosion of the two together on your taste buds, leave me a comment. I'll close the comments at midnight, MST, Thursday, and will post the winner on this Friday's post. Now make sure I can get ahold of you with an email address or blog or I'll have to draw again. The winner will have a week to respond back with a mailing adress. One comment per person, please.


Now go, leave a comment. C'mon I know you want to win this! And don't forget to go visit Bloggy Giveaways to link your prize and to get in on all the giveaways.
