Celebrate Good Times + a Giveaway
Well, "there's a party goin' on right here, a celebration to last throughout the years--So bring your good times, and your laughter too, We gonna celebrate your party with you--Come on now!" Don't ya'll just love you some Kool and the Gang? As you can probably tell, I had that song in my head the whole time I was making this card. And YES, I AM celebrating around here! Did ya'll notice my new decor? I had a makeover--a BLOG makeover that is--no one has called me to be on What Not To Wear yet (Stacy London is my idol as we share the same gray streak in our hair). For my birthday back in January, I asked my sister Sara for a redo of the old bloggio and this is the NEW LOOK!
So when I was poking around in my stampy drawers (hehe), I found the perfect VERVE set to make a card with for my new blog's DEBUT--Birthday Bash! My card is sporting this past Friday's Viva la Verve sketch from Jackie Pedro. I just had to use some more of that Little Girl paper from Echo Park too, and even paper pieced the balloons. I love the yellow one with the heart. I like yellow and definitely needed it included in my new blog design as well. Didn't Sara do a great job?
Anyway, since it's been a while since I've had a giveaway and this is a perfect time to celebrate, I thought to myself, "self--let's have a giveaway, since this is the perfect time to celebrate." I'm not a deep thinker, can ya'll tell? I've got a little something from all the companies I design for and love and I may even throw in a few other surprise goodies! There's a couple of sweet embellishments from Pizzazz Aplenty, a Flat-Bottomed Clouds Die-namics from My Favorite Things, the Every Season Plain Jane from Verve and the Ewe Complete Me stamp set from The Cat's Pajamas.
Just leave me a comment telling Sara how wonderful she is (she won't get a big head, I promise. She's way more deep than I am), and I'll do that random drawing thing, oh let's say sometime on Sunday the 27th. Sound good? I love ya'll!
SUSIE Q-TIP: Remember those Prima flowers from long ago like this one? I tend to not use them as much any more with all the flower dies and punches available, but I still really love them. Get yours out and layer a button on them to feel the love once again.
