Today is your birthday...

Oh, wait...no it isn't...it is MY birthday! My 40th birthday! First I'm going to show you my Blogger's Challenge card for today and then I'm going to give you guys the gift for my birthday...yay!

So, this weeks Blogger's Challenge is a sketch...love that! I forgot to download the sketch but if you click on the Blogger's Challenge button to the right I bet you one of the other girls has it. I used all new Stampin' Up! products for this card. SO fun! I think I'll put the deets at the bottom of the post so if you want to know what I used that is the place to see it! Isn't it just a fun card! I love the snowflakes and that sentiment is SO cute!

Okay, now...for my birthday. First look what Dani made and sent me! How would she know that I would love that plaque? I can't wait to have my own stamp room so I can put this (and a couple of other wonderful things that my friends have made for me) up on the wall!

Now...how about you guys get the gift for my birthday?! Here is how it is going to work. For each $40 you order from my Stampin' Up! website HERE anytime between today and October 15th at midnight you will earn a ticket for a chance to win $40 in SU! merchandise of your choice!* Now, if anything in your order is pink in color you will get a second chance to win the free SU! merchandise AND 10% of my commission from that part of your order goes to Susan G Komen foundation as well! Everyone wins all the way around. Another thing you need to remember about me is that I'm sometimes unpredictable so you may want to comment on my blog while I'm gone...you never know what will happen!

So...what are you waiting for? Go order those SU! products that you've been wanting...you may just be the person that wins $40 in products of your choice!

Just a note...posting will be sporadic over the next week as Todd and I enjoy some time together for my birthday.

Have a SUPER day everyone...I know I will!

*(I will need 5 people to order from my website for this to work)

Very cute card. I love that sentiment. Must have missed this one in the catty so will have to check it out. I like the little clip you used on the sentiment. I never think to use things like that on my cards.

Thank you for supporting the Susan G Koman cancer fund. Having lost my favorite cousin ( she was my age too) to breast cancer, this is an organization that I really support.

Happy 40th birthday--may you have a lovely day and be blessed throughout the coming year.
