Last Birthday Giveaway! Winner #7 and Prize #8

Wow! What a week I have been having :) Last night rounded out the celebrations with a family BBQ that my sister put on for me. 
Is this cake amazing or what? It was a fresh strawberry filled cake with some amazing white chocolate dipped strawberries on top. It was utterly beautiful. 
We also had steak and chicken skewers, burgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob and pasta salad. It was a job well done. 

My mom, brother and my oldest daughter. 

Do you ever wonder what happens during an evening that you missed so many opportunities for pictures? Here are a couple, but for some reason....pictures were scarce yesterday evening. 

And of course me and Sarabee courtesy of snapchat filters.lol I'm not sure teens know any other way of taking pics.



Now on to the giveaway :) The winner of the Paper Stack and Enamel Shapes is Monica :) Congratulations girl!

And Giveaway#8, the last of the Birthday Giveaways is this awesome box of adhesives. 
There's Snail, Fast Fuse, Fine tip glue, tombow multipurpose, mini glue dots, mini and regular dimensionals, Tear and Tape....something for every situation. :) 


To enter this Giveaway, just comment below with your favorite adhesive to use on cards. 
Mine...well...I do love them all as they each seem to have a specific purpose :) But....my favorite that I use the most often is the fast fuse and a close 2nd are the dimensionals :) 

I hope that your week has been as wonderful as mine :) One more winner will be posted tomorrow. Thank you again for participating. :)

Happy Crafting

Just comment below with your favorite cake or dessert that you have for your birthday. 
Me....Well I have a favorite from long ago and that was a fresh strawberry cake with real whip cream, from a bakery up here...ohhhh it is delicious....but only available in a big sheet cake...so...not always the best idea for me to eat tons of cake.lol. And my close second is a cake from Chucks a specialty market. It is a lemon poppyseed with raspberry...then cream cheese frosting....they make cupcakes, small cakes & big cakes in that one. It is beautiful!


I think I'll have to grab the cupcake size tomorrow as my hubby and I go out of town :) 

On a side note....I just got my July Paper Pumpkin last night when I got home from work. So super cute. Lots of fun cards to make. 

Also remember if you are a Stampin' RN VIP I will also post alternative ideas for your Paper Pumpkin on that page.

A Week FULL of Giveaways. Winner #2 and Giveaway #3

Ohh what fun I am having this week giving to you all. :) I just love getting entries and then spinning for a winner or doing randompicker.

Yesterday everyone told me what they love to do for their birthday's :) I will tell you I loved reading them. :) Thank you for sharing!

Without further ado.....the winner of the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack and the Peekaboo Peach Ombre Stampin' Pad is.......
Elaine Goh :) 

Woohoo.....CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I have always been a firm believer in not working on your birthday. Not working as in not working a 9-5 job. For those stay at home mom's....I'm pretty sure there's no PTO (Paid Time Off or Unpaid Time Off). So tell me....do you work your regular job on your birthday???? and if you are a stay at home mom....do you get extra help and maybe a little reprieve on your birthday? 
Comment below for a chance to win the Giveaway for Day #3. 
This is a good one....a REALLY GOOD one!
It's the Shooting Star stamp set and framelits. 
(I did put the sticker labels on the back of the stamp set but it was never used and the framelits have never been used either.)


This set can make some fun cards where the bee or the star swirls around. I never got a chance to use this before it retired this May. 

Good luck!!!

Did you see my latest video? I show you how to assembly line some notecards with different DSP. 



One last thing....I have a great giveaway for my Stampin' RN VIP's on Thursday, My Birthday. There will actually be a giveway for both my VIP's and non-VIP's. To be a Stampin' RN VIP you have to have made at least a $50 purchase from me this year. You still have time to be added before Thursday. 
Order 24/7 HERE and click SHOP NOW. 
Check out my July specials HERE
You will also qualify for the VIP page if you order my Lemon Zest Class


There is so much going on this week, I can hardly keep everything straight!!!
Wish me luck!!!
