happy holidays 2012 – cuptakes iphone case giveaway

Today’s giveaway is brought to you by the lovely people at Cuptakes.  My friend Courtney was the one who introduced me to these cute cases, and I was immediately smitten.  As I have mentioned before, I love their iPhone cases.  The patterns and designs are so fun, colorful and they have a huge selection.  My only problem has been narrowing it down to choose the one I want!   I also have their app for the iPhone and use it to download fun wallpapers for the home screen.

We are giving away an iPhone case to two lucky winners.  To enter, leave a comment on THIS POST and tell me which case design is your favorite!

The Rules: One entry per person.  Commenting will open Monday, December 19 at 4:45 am EST and close on Saturday, December 22 at 12:00 pm EST.  Entries that do not follow the entry requirements will not be considered.  Two winners will be selected at random and contacted via email by early next week.  Good luck!

Full disclosure: This giveaway is sponsored by Cuptakes and Annie’s Eats.
