GO! Baby giveaway

I'm sooooo excited to be hosting this giveaway today. The fine folks at AccuQuilt are allowing me to giveaway a GO! Baby cutting system and 3 dies (your choice!) to one of my readers. To enter, please leave ONE comment on this post. In your comment I'd like to include 3 things that you are thankful for.
Here's my list:

2. I'm thankful for a great weekend with my husband, kids and good friends.

Happy Monday to you! And good luck!
