You Are Fabulous (and a giveaway)

It's my Grandma's birthday today and I've been so stinkin busy, I didn't have time to make her a card until...today! I literally finished making this card at 5:15pm (we were meeting her for dinner at 5:30!) I was pretty happy with how it turned out. It took me like 10 minutes (that's all the time I had! lol) and I didn't even use a sketch or anything! It seems like ages since I made anything without a sketch. I got a whole whack load of Unity Stamps in the mail today and just had to use one, and I thought this "You are Fabulous" would work perfectly for a birthday card. I have a feeling you might be seeing this sentiment on a whole bunch of projects!  Speaking of new stamps, you still have time to play along with us over at Seriously Creative Challengs. This month's challenge is Un-Inked, Un-Cut, Un-Opened and the prize is a 10$ gift certificate to the Creative Accents Online Store and some fabulous Crinkable Inkable ribbon! 


And now for the giveaway! It's not mine, but I wanted to help spread the word about a fellow crafty friend's giveaway and also some fund raising. Over at Canadian Nickel Scrappin, my buddy Nicole is giving away 2 sets of 10 digis (From Simply Betty Stamps) and a brand new Cricut cartridge! Woohoo!! Betty from Simply Betty Stamps is raising money to cover the costs of her son's medical bills and is selling any 10 digis from SBS stamps for 15 bucks!! That's a total steal! So get on over there and buy some digis!! 

Well that's all for me tonight...I think my boys are finally sleeping! Time to go downstairs and get in some crafty time! 

Thanks for stopping by!!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges: 365 Cards: Overlapped
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
Divas By Design: Happy Birthday
