Good morning, happy Friday the 13th, and Happy Birthday to me! LOL!! I'm not usually one to wish myself a happy birthday, but today I'm going to, because I'm so happy to be giving the presents to YOU!! Today, I'm going to give away this Toad-ally Awesome card, along with an assortment of blog candy for my birthday. It's just a small token of my appreciation for all of the support and encouragement I get from YOU, my followers each and every day. To enter all you have to do is #1 Be a follower, and #2 Leave a comment on this post sharing with me one of your favorite birthday memories. That's it!! You will have until Sunday, August 15th at midnight (CST) to enter, and I will draw a winner at random on Monday morning. Please leave me an email or contact info so that I can let you know you won. Below is a picture of the card, and blog candy.The Scrapping Cottage. I used Frog on Lily Pad, Marker Sign, and the Zig-Zag Edger dies, and cut them with colored card stock. After I assembled the pieces, I colored and did shading with my Copic markers, and added lots of white accents with my white gel pen. It works just as well to color the colored card stock as it does white. I cut the fire flies with acetate, and it looks so cute IRL!!
The candy includes the Simply Sent Card Kit (Remembering You, which includes card stock, embellishments, stamps, and everything you need for an entire set of cards), Stamp sets: Live Like You Mean It, Birthday Whimsy, Congrats, 1 6x6 pad of designer paper (all from Stampin' Up!), and 5 spools of assorted printed ribbon with birthday and congratulations sentiments.
