Great Gussy Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed.
Well, readers, I'm happy to announce another fantastic giveaway from one of my sponsors... Gussy, the lovely shop by Maggie Whitley, is the exciting sponsor behind these darling bags, and is offering my readers a $30 gift card giveaway!!
Here's some info from Maggie about Gussy!

For fun, here's a little about me:
Gussy is a line of ruffled accessories. Each ruffle is machine sewn free-hand style, making each ruffle unique. About 18 months ago I sat down at my kitchen table -- I wanted to learn how to sew. And here I am now, offering zipped pouches of all sizes, laptop bags, netbook/iPad bags, tote/diaper bags, checkbook covers, wristlet/clutches and note cards (all with my signature ruffle) to those that love a little flair :) And, I've recently quit my day job to pursue Gussy full-time. To read more about Gussy, click here.
