It's Ma Birfday!!! And a BLOG CANDY CHALLENGE!!

Haha! It's ma birfday!! Yep!! All day! Sadly, I had to work...that's why I'm just posting this now! After work was great! I came home from work and the house smelled.....like yummy FOOD!!! I walked into the kitchen and my Momma jumped out and surprised me!! She lives about an hour and a half away, so this was a big surprise!!! She made roast beef, roast potatoes, gravy and YORKSHIRE PUDDING! All my faves!! Oh yah, and there was some broccoli too!

Anyhoooooo, I thought we should celebrate for my birthday....PLUS, this Friday is the third anniversary of my blog! SO in order to do this right, I'd like to give away some KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!!! How about that?????

But in order to have a chance to win, you have to take my challenge!!! It's easy, really. You need to make a birthday or anniversary card.....using the sketch on this card for inspiration:



I made this card featuring the adorable Shy Emmylou, using SU cardstock and these sparkly My Mind's Eye designer papers! Of course, I coloured her with my Copic markers! I added some Prima flowers with a glittery brad and that velvet ribbon you see is also sparkly!! I added the sentiment that comes with the image and I think she looks SUPER cute!



So the rules are: make a birthday or anniversary card using the sketch on my sample....it has to be a NEW card and not combined with any other challenges!! You can use any stamps you want to be included....but using KKStamps will get you extra points!! And instead of a random draw, the Krafty Girls and I will choose the winner(s). Depending on how many people play, that winner could be plural!! AND you have until Wednesday evening, Feb. 10th to join, as we start showing you sneaky peeks for the February release stamps the next day!!!! That's coming up soon......and the release is on February 14th!! Heeheeeeeee!

So just link us up here in this post....we can't wait to see your designs!

Happy birfday to me and happy krafting to YOU!!
