Did Ya Miss Me?

Hello!! I cannot believe I have been gone for over a month. Things have been a little difficult lately, and I have not had time to do anything. I also think I lost my mojo, I hope it comes back SOON.


I even missed my BLOG Anniversary. Well actually I started my BLOG in November of 2006, but I did not go public until May 27, 2007. I originally started this BLOG for my Stampin' Ladies to have a place to visit for ideas. Then Allison encouraged me to go public. I did my first challenge on May 27, a Beate Weekend Sketch Challenge, and the rest is history.

So in honor of my anniversary I am offering a treat. I will give out a $25 gift certificate to either Paper Trey or Eclectic Paperie, I have not decided which. So I am sure you are wondering what you need to do to enter. Just leave me a comment. I will have the boys draw a name next weekend. You may enter ONCE each day until the boys do their thing.

This card is one of a few that I made for Hannah's (Brandon's girlfriend) birthday invitation. Hannah's mom called and asked me to do invitations for the party, so I had to get creative. I am not incredibly happy with this, but I it will do. I need to purchase more "Girly" stamps ;)

You're back!?! Of course we missed you! And you come bearing gifts: you are TOO sweet. I have to get offa my butt and do blog candy too. LONG overdue. I like the gift certificate idea a lot. You're too clever!

Love your invite. The repeated scallops is such a great layout. Looks like your mojo is great to me, but I hope it feels 100% soon. :0)
