Happy Birthday SWEET STUFF!!!!

Happy Monday, everyone, and welcome to a brand new week! I hope you all had a splendid weekend and will have a fun and enjoyable week.

I thought this card had posted while I was away for my birthday but not so...sigh...It is for the Wild Orchid Challenge this fortnight where the challenge is ROUND IN CIRCLES. So I hope you will join in with us because you have until this coming Sunday evening to participate in this fun challenge and you know there is a marvelous prize for each challenge.

I used the cute little Tilda in Ballet Shoes from Magnolia-licious, stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Promarkers and adding some Prisma Glitter. She was embellished with many things from Wild Orchid Crafts: Trellis Roses, Classic Sweet Roses, Tulips, Organza Ribbon, and Self-Adhesive Pearls. I am making this description short because I want to get to the REAL reason for this posting!!!!

So that should give you a hint about my SPECIAL BIRTHDAY SWEET STUFF!!!! First, thank you all for the lovely greetings you sent me here and on FB in celebration of my 65th Birthday last week...woooohoooo!!! I made it to Medicare and gosh another year!!!!

So I am offering THREE Gift Certificates to my very favorite shop for any and all embellishments, the wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts!!!!

$30 Gift Certificate

$20 Gift Certificate

$15 Gift Certificate

And if I added correctly, that is for each of my 65 years...hahahhaha

Please leave your info with the little Blue Froggy before Monday, August 6, at midnight and you will be in for the draw. Three lucky people will soon be able to select their very own marvelous WOC products! If you don't have a blog just skip over the URL request and you can still participate. If you do have a blog I would love for you to put the Gift Certificate pic on your sidebar with a link back to the SWEET STUFF

Traci S. said...

Hi Jacque~

I am so glad I decided to check out your blog today. We have been away, and I have had a massive migraine for 3 days. This card is adorable! Did you ever take ballet? I wondered if you were the young girl in the card, celebrating her birthday!? Your give-away is amazingly generous of you, Jacque. I don't know why my name didn't show up again I tried at #119, and it is still open. I hope my name shows up in this drawing because I go nuts over Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and other embellishments. But, I see the amazing detail in their flowers!

So glad you had a happy birthday. We celebrated 13 years of marriage on Wednesday. Are our celebrations on the same day? Though we celebrate every day!

He IS Able!

You May Receive 1-5 Cards!
