Gator Strong New Release ***GIVEAWAY***

Howdy and happy Friday all. To kick of the weekend we've got a fun new set to share with you. One of our DT Members, Sandy, made a special request to Kris to make a set featuring an alligator. Sandy's son just graduated basic training in the Air Force and their group's moto is 'gator strong' so she wanted to create something special for him and Kris came up with the perfect set for her. Check it out...

Sandy and a few of our other DT members also had fun working with the set.  Here are some great samples to help inspire you...

How would you like to win this fun set, as shown above? To be eligible, simply leave a comment answering the following question...

Have you ever seen an alligator or a crocodile up close, either in a zoo or out in nature?

  I've actually always been fascinated by alligators and crocodiles, ever since I was a kid. However, I do prefer my encounters to be behind rather thick enclosures or through the television. There was one time though that I got to see them out in nature up close and a bit too personal for my tastes. A number of years ago, my hubby and I were on vacation visiting with my parents who were spending the winter in Florida. My parents had friends in the area who had a speed boat. We ended up going out on a river that was completely infested with alligators. They were everywhere I'd look! I would have been normally terrified and praying the boat didn't sink but what made things worse that particular day was that I had had a really bad fall just days before and I was on crutches and my knee was all braced up and a mess. Instead of being able to enjoy the boat ride somewhat, I just couldn't relax thinking that I'd never be able to swim if we went down! Thankfully we survived the ride unscathed. It is definitely an encounter I'll never forget!

You have until 3:00 p.m. (PST) on Monday, August 29th, to get your response submitted. 

We will announce the winner of this set on Tuesday, August 30th at 3:00 p.m.  Don't forget you'll have just two weeks to claim your prize, if you are the lucky winner! 

Want to see more fab work from the DT showcased today?

See you later alligator! (Sorry, I couldn't help myself.)
