Second Birthday Giveaway Added!!

Hey!  Look at me posting two days in a row!!  WOO HOO! lol

I made a quick "vintage" card for my friend, Cheryl's, Vintage challenge at Sketches4all

I pulled out some chipboard and papers from Graphic 45 and some twine and got busy.  It went together pretty quickly except for the sentiment.  I just had the hardest time thinking what I wanted to do/say for the sentiment.  I ended up using some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Verbiages (word stickers) to write out "I Love Your Smile".  I think it works.  How about you?

I also made this card for the new Crafter's Companion USA Challenge blogs September Stripes and/or Dots challenge that started today.  I love this Poplar Tree stamp from Art Kure.  I stamped out the image 3 times and colored them.  Then I fussy cut one out and layered them on my card base.  I used corrugated craft paper for my "stripes" and for some great texture.  Apparently I'm on a TH Verbiages kick since I used them again for my sentiment on this card. lol  What can I say?  I like them.  You should go check out that new challenge at the CC Challenge blog.  You could win a $30 gift certificate to the Crafter's Companion USA online store!! 

Oh, I almost forgot.  My birthday Giveaway has reached 50 entries so I am adding a second giveaway of ...

Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers - Pastels 24 Piece Set and one Spectrum Noir 36 Pen Zipper Bag to put them in. 

How does that sound??!!  And if I reach 100 entries I will add a 3rd giveaway prize.  So spread the word and tell all your friends.  You still need to comment on the main birthday giveaway post to enter.  GO HERE
Okay, enough excitement for one day!! LOL  For all you folks in the US, have a fantastic Labor Day weekend!!   And everyone else you guys have a great weekend too!!
