Happy Birthday to Me and a Giveaway!

Good morning my friends!!! Yes, yes, yes... today is my birthday and I'm turning the big 4-0!!! 

A couple of weekends ago my family decided to throw a surprise birthday party for me!!! I was definitely surprised and I was so thankful for everyone that wanted to share that special day with me.  Since my son's birthday was this past weekend, I guess the surprise was to have it so much earlier.  Totally threw me off!!  Well, I got some really cool gifts and so I decided to make these simple thank you cards to send out.  I used the Imagine More Cards cartridge.  I am truly blessed to have my family and so many friends that care so much about me.




I am very much of a giving person, so I've decided that in honor of my birthday, I would like to giveaway 2 sets of Crafty Sprouts stamps (winner's choice).  All you have to do is:

1. Comment below (you don't have to be a follower, but if you like my work, I would love it if you did!).
2. Go and like the Crafty Sprouts Facebook Page, tell them I sent you and let me know on your comment that you have
3. Go to the Crafty Sprouts Shop and tell me which is your favorite stamp.
4. Share this post on Facebook or on your blog.

I will have this giveaway up until September 21, midnight (EST).  

My beautiful friends Kimi and Tanya surprised me with a great birthday post and presents this morning.  Thank you Kimi and Tanya... I was truly surprised!!! Please visit their blogs to see what they made for me.  Truly, truly awesome gifts!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fantabulous day!

Happy Birthday :) I hope that you have a fabulous day, but how could it not be when two of your friends post such lovely projects made just for you? I shared your post, liked "Crafty Sprouts" and checked their store out. I love the "Cool Yule" set, but that "Totally Witchin" set is awfully cute too.

Happy Birthday Zeni. I am already a follower of your blog and have liked Crafty Sprouts on facebook for a while. I posted over there also.

The next set I am going to get is Besties for Life. I was going to get it with my last order but it won't be available until the 30th which is the day after my 45th birthday so I will ask hubby for a present a little late. :-) So worth waiting for.

I will also be sharing this on facebook when I'm done with this comment.
