Birthday for my Nephew and Giveaway Update!!

Hey!

Today is my sweet nephew Henry's birthday. His dad, my brother-in-law, is currently in Afghanistan serving our country as an Army Chaplain. Please pray for Joe and his family, especially Henry. This is Joe's first deployment and Henry looks up to his dad so much!! We want him home safe more than anything in he world! He has a wife and four children, one of whom just turned 1 last week. Joe and Henry both LOVE music, so I made this card for Henry's birthday:

Does it blind you? LOL!! It's a really simple card and perfect for him. It's an A2 sized card and I used the Rock Princess cartridge and cut the guitar at 4".  I used My Pink Stamper stamps for the sentiment. No surprise there, huh? Well, the other day, I won my first set of Peachy Keen stamps. I think I'm gonna be in trouble!! I cannot WAIT to get them in the mail. :)

Here's an update on my impending 200 followers giveaway!! I have officially ordered the prize, and you are not going to want to miss it! Let's just say it's one of my favorite cartridges!!!

Thanks to all of you who comment and follow my blog, it really means a lot to me. I may be new to the craft, but you all make me feel as though I've been here all along. Thanks for your support. :)

What a sweet kitty! I love your card... I left a comment on the cricitology blog under the cute groundhog card and noticed that you mentioned something about finding challenges. I have been thinking the same thing!!! Anyways, I am starting a list on my blog and hoping that it grows quickly. Maybe it will be of some help...
